Harry tackle Parkruns

CVFR’s juniors concentrated more on parkruns this last weekend. Notable results included Joseph Stone, who finished 4th in the Huddersfield Junior Parkrun in Greenhead Park. In Halifax, Harry Cliffe continued his slew of impressive fell running performances with an incredibly strong run in his first time at this race. Harry not only knocked 1.5 minutes of his previous best 5k time at Brighouse parkrun in 22 minutes & 26 seconds, but now holds the 2nd  fastest ever time for under 10s for the Halifax race. Finishing 15th overall out of 246 runners – piping Dad Ben to 16th overall by only 1 second – is all the more impressive bearing mind that Harry only turned 8 in January!
