This was the Lancashire Fell Championship Race and what a day it turned out to be. Two Lancahire Fell Running Champions in the club. And both from the same family. Young Betsy Pickles was first off in the U9 race where she finished 2nd girl. Luckily for her, the first finisher was not a Lancastrian so she took the championship place.
Then her sister took part in the U13 race. She not only came home in first place, but she came home with a good margin over 2nd place Libby Rickerby.
Finally, in the U17 race, Jack Villiers came home in third place and as a result, he earned a Lancashire Vest and will represent his county in the Inter Counties Fell Championship in June.
