What fantastic evenings for fun on the fells!
What a fantastic few weeks back on the fells! Happy, smiling faces charging around the summits and tarns, team squealer in full voice. It’s good to be back!!!
NO RACING, but some of you have been busy finding the cache, helping to send the red flag county wide and testing your skills on the orienteering courses round Ambleside and Kendal. BUT NOW
Something for everyone (check your emails or the tab for latest news)
Complete 10 for the Half Skyline award and all 20 for the Full
Please send in your efforts so we can see what you have all been up to!
Cautley ranks right up there with Barbon in the best / worst fell races you could ever think of doing as a junior. Those of you who were brave (daft) enough to give it a go can count yourselves as true fell runners – well done!
Next up is Elterwater – home turf! Could there be any better way to celebrate Mother’s Day than standing on a windy fell side waiting to find out if any children will actually return from the clag? Extra Kudos for any juniors who clean there own muddy fell shoes so Mum doesn’t have to (or at least says thanks!).
At last a weekend with no storms and the racing was GO!!, and finally Joss could get his first KWL under his belt!
Don’t forget only 4 races to count now (5 for seniors) with 3 left in the series, lots of you are up for some prizes!
A brave few took on the weather on a very wet and windy morning, SLIPPERY!!
A fantastic turn out to the first club champs of the year, the older you were the steeper and boggier the route. Massive thank you to Dan who sums it up brilliantly
Don’t be put off when you train
by the winter’s wind, snow and rain,
For if you prevail, through the mud and the hail,
The toughness of champions you’ll gain !!
So, just keep running regularly and having fun with your mates and you will be able to go faster and further with a bigger smile.
MUDFEST!! WATER JUMP!!Guess who?
Here We go again!! Fantastic turn out to the first race of the KWL, what better way to spend a breezy, damp Sunday than making friends, battling the weather and battling your mates!
Well done to first timers Magnus and Freddie and to those of you who had to move up with the big kids, including Maesie, Sophie and Charlie into U17 and Chloe to U21! Not fazed one bit: 2 wins, a 2nd and 3rd AWESOME!
