Calder’s Juniors shine in Leeds

CVFR’s junior talent was on display at the West Yorkshire schools cross country championships at Leeds grammar school on 1st February. The first 12 home were set to qualify for West Yorkshire at the national school XC champs.

Conditions were a little windy and cold but the rain stayed away to make perfect underfoot conditions, creating fast times and finishing the line with minimal mud. Races length ranged from 2.3km to 6km.

Calder Valley runners did extremely well running in their events with the best from West Yorkshire. In intermediate (year 10-11) girls and boys races both Amelia Wright and Elijah Webb both finished 18th in their races.

Ishbel and Lottie racing through the puddles

There were excellent results for the red & white hooped junior runners at Wharfedale Harriers’ Stanberry Splash quarry races. All the junior races start in the quarry, with a mad dash along the bottom before scrambling up the end – with the younger runners doing a loop to finish & the older runners going out onto the moors & back. Harry Cliff, competing for the first time in the U11 category, came an impressive 3rd, with fellow Calder Valley U11, Ted Parker also running well to finish 6th.

In the girls’ races, Charlotte Cliff finished both 5th overall & 5thgirl in the U9 age category, closely followed by Ishabel Symington in 6th place. Emilia Wright also ran a strong race in a competitive field to finish 4th U17 girl.
