After travelling the 200 miles to Leeds to compete in what many think is the best race of the year, and certainly the most spectacular, Belgrave’s Juniors were met by a glorious sunny, dry and warm day.
First off was Freya in the U17 Ladies race, running as ever with a smile on her race and pleased to get the pain out of the way quickly.
We then had our U13 Boys, only one athlete short of a team, with Monty Juxon having a blinder to finish 14th.
He was followed home by his brother, Jago, and Max Simpson. Maybe next year we’ll have a team – a fourth runner this year would have given us a top twenty placing, maybe even top ten.
And to round off a great day, Lina Colas competed to her usual high standard in the U13 Girls to place 133rd from a field of over 400.
