Natrika put in a commendable jump of 4.46m today at the indoor arena, and a 6.54 m Shot Putt. Unfortunately she missed the call for the 60m sprint and had to compete in  the 200m instead. Running in the last heat she came first (time not known at present). All in all a good day.

Neng wasn’t feeling himself today – he had a tummy upset (probably still suffering from the after effects of Friday’s party), and it showed in both his 60m and 200m times.

Leroy ran well in the 60m sprint but pulled up in the 200m after 30m  – but still managed to keep a smile on his face.

No snow in Barrow but many athletes decided not to make the trip on Saturday.  However it proved worthwhile those Pendle Athletes who did travel. Pendle U13 boys proved again to be the winning team with Matthew Barnes leading the way with first place and  6 Thomas Marchant, 15 Gregan Baker and 17 Jacob VanGeffen .

Matthew Dutton 4th  and James Marchant 8th shone in the U15 boys race, with Faye Holden being the only other Pendle athlete to travel.

There is an excellent report in the Lancashire Telegraph

Pendle Vale School is closed and there will be no Young Athlete Group or Intermediate squad on Monday 13th Feb.  The endurance squad will train from Seedhill track.  Wednesday night as normal, weather permitting.

Just a reminder that we train in all weathers, but if icy or deep snow then sessions will be altered or cancelled for safety reasons.

Some good runs from Pendle Athletes, typically Noel’s U13 boys, Matthew Dutton and Helena Leathley with some of Dave Parker’s sprint group athletes gaining some respectable positions.

Coaching for all over the age of 11 years old and all abilities




Booking forms are on an earlier post

This is a good local race organised by Ilkley Harriers, full details on their website  Junior races are entry on day, but there is a senior limit of 300 runners and pre entry.  If you are a senior or over 16 then get your entry in now!

Junior courses are challenging but not too difficult for less experienced fell runners. U18s can run in the senior race but note that you have a different entry form to meet the FRA requirements.  The senior race is only suitable for experienced fell runners.

FRA race dates for 2012 have now been published in the calendar which is sent to members, and on the FRA website.  BOFRA race dates will be published in the next week or so on

Kendal Winter league races continue with the best races coming up.   I can strongly recommend the senior races at Fairmile, Barbondale and Cautley Spout.  There are junior races at every one, which is why the youngsters from the Kendal area are so good!

Northern XC Full Reults:

Apologies for the delay in posting, I have received lots of photos from Richard but am having trouble with them.

We had 4 boys in the U13s and they came in 6th team with Tiarnan Crorken 22nd, Matthew Barnes 29th, Thomas Marchant 39th and I am not sure where Jacob Van Geffen came but he was the 4th counter for Pendle.  In the U15 boys Pendle were represented by Darius Boardman, Matthew Dutton and James Marchant.  Not sure of their positions but all the boys were pleased with there runs and enjoyed the sunny and mild temperature day over in Yorkshire compared to the snowy cold day in Lancashire.  Faye competed in the senior ladies.
