Now the 3rd and final individual Bunny run is over Calder Valley juniors can reflect back over the 3 race series with some satisfaction knowing they only have the relay event to go now. The lads have been consistently at the front of all the races, in the first BR1 with the help of super fast senior Tim Ellis Edan and Jack were able to claim the winning the team prize. Jack had never seen one of Dave Woodheads famous prize giving and simply couldn’t believe how much chocolate he and others walked away with. Max returned from international training for BR2 and with Max 2nd overall Edan 9th and Jack 11th they were rightly disappointed to be pipped for the team prize by Wharfedale seniors. Unluckily the same happened in BR3 as Max was once again 2nd overall and claiming his 2nd win over fell running legend Ian Holmes in as many weeks , Edan was 11th and Jack 12th but Bingley managed to get 3 seniors in the top 10 to take overall first prize. Still for a 14, 15 and 16 year old thats some going to be 2nd team two weeks on the trot.
Max having missed the first race wasnt eligible for any series prizes but Edans consistency saw him take 2nd U16 series prize and scaring him into running so well was Jack who has announced himself well and truly with a fine series of races which saw him claim 3rd u16 overall with both of them being beaten only by the National Champion.
In the girls races Issy has continued to rediscver her form of a year or to ago and has placed regularly near the top of the U16 race however with the official results yet to be confirmed its not possible to say where she has finished overall.
All 4 have given themselves excellent chances of being selected to represent Yorkshire in the forthcoming Intercounties race at Settle in May.
