These championships took place in Arco in Italy and Josh Boyle was representing Great Britain in the Junior Men Race. He finished just over half way down the field, which is a considerable achievement, considering that he was one of the youngest runners there and he was racing against lads three years older than himself.
This will have been invaluable experience for this young man to take forward to future international events.
Just for the record, Great Britain came 4th behind Turkey, Italy and France.
Tom Corrigan ran out the comfortable winner of this race, ahead of Gareth Booth of Horwich, with Julian Hood coming home third.
In the ladies race, Sarah Tipler was second lady behind Louise Powell-Smith of Clayton, with Lorraine Slater in third place and first W45.
Barlick also took both male and female team prizes.
There are no junior results out yet, but the brief news is that Lucille Pickles was 1st U8 girl, George Fitzpatrick 1st U8 boy, Jenna Boothman was 2nd U12 girl, Elliot Phillips 2nd U12 boy,

This year, Sam Wadsworth & Kirsty Hall moved up a class as Kirsty was feeling more confident following her recent running performances. This is a two day event and involved them running about 30 miles in the Lake District around the area of Ullswater and Haweswater. This involved around 4,500 ft of climbing on day one and around 3,500 ft of climbing on day two. On Saturday, they were beset by heavy showers and at times the going was tough. Because of the wet, even straightforward running became difficult and on the descent from Angle Tarn going in the direction of the Ian Hodgson race, they took a tumble and they found themselves descending at an every increasing rate. Luckily they managed to stop, but no sooner had they done so, than another competitor swept past, luckily missing them but tumbling into a small ravine, where she suffered a broken arm. Also in the ravine had been another competitor who had suffered head injuries. These were dealt with by the Mountain Rescue and our pair carried on, finishing 9th overall after day one. On day two, the weather was much better and they finished 6th overall, making their final position 7th and 3rd mixed team. Just to get this into perspective, last year, in this class, Nick Charlesworth & Dave Kirkham from Wharfedale, both class runners in their own right, came home in 18th place, so our pair were pleased with their first year in the higher level Carrock Fell class, in this competition..
