Unfortunately due to the adverse weather conditions the last race of the season at Wasdale had to be cancelled. So another B.O.F.R.A. season comes to a close with P & B once again punching well above its weight.
Rachel coming Second in the senior ladies, massive well done! Caroline coming second in the lady vet40/45 another massive well done! For the men Graham finishing in a very creditable 10th overall. Well done all the seniors who took part!
In the junior section we had Melissa U9s Joint 1st, due to how many races entered and its 1 point per race finish. However with four finishes in top 5 another good season. Melissa will be moving up to U12s next season. So hopefully someone from the pups can take up the mantle for the U9s.
The U12s saw Annie battling from start to finish, finishing a fantastic 15th position in the girls championship overall (half way up the table) in her first year at U12s. U14s saw Declan finish in the top 10 again.with a best finish of sixth. Declan will be moving up to U17s next season. Massive well done to all our runners from the occasional guest spot to the full season runners!
Next season the committee have decided that if there is enough interest they are willing to put transport on to get some pups/juniors to a local fell race. So if there are any pups or juniors out there who would like to try a fell race (ask Decs or Melissa what it’s like) please get in touch with either myself, Joanne Boocock or Andy Cook to register your interest.
Hopefully get to see some more Maroon an Gold on the hills.
