CVFR’s junior racers, this week was more about park runs with Storm Ciara battering the fells. At the Centre Vale Park Run in Todmorden, Harry Cliff ran a personal best, finishing the 5km in an impressive 22:47 – 12th overall & winning the under 10s race by half a minute. Calder Valley’s Leo Hacket also raced well in his very first parkrun to finish 3rd Under 10 in 23:23. For the red & white seniors, both Elliot Corner & Marc Collet (who also ran a PB) were first in their respective age categories (4th & 36th respectively). Slightly further afield, at the Watergrove Parkrun, U14 Calder Valley runner, Oliver Pickens crossed the line over 3 minutes before any of the other junior runners with a strong time of 24:47.
