The races for juniors at the Yorkshire Road Relay Championships are straight races, and four of our talented youngsters took part, with great distinction.
In the U13 Girls race Rebecca Flaherty continued her excellent form in 2nd place, winning a well-deserved silver medal.
Our U15 Boys Alex Flaherty, Ben Rees and Theo Clay have been our most successful squad this season, and once again they came up trumps to finish second in the team competition. Alex was 4th, Ben 9th and Theo 16th.

Weather conditions were not the best for the first outdoor meeting of the year. Heavy winds meant that everyone was working as hard as ever to try get a decent result.
We had 27 athletes out for the club, which means for second year in a row we’ve had a good increase. From having only 13 out athletes in 2017, it shows how much good work the club is doing. We had a decent number of athletes competing for the first time in Bingley colours.
Hopefully this is a sign of things to come this season on track.

Seven of our young Harriers were were selected to represent their counties as a result of a selection race organised by the county associations: Ruby Firth ran for North Yorkshire and Grace Dawson, Emily Field, Alex Flaherty, Rebecca Flaherty, Reuben Mantle and Oliver Peace all ran for West Yorkshire.
In the Intermediate category (U17) Ruby Firth was 143rd and Grace Dawson 202nd in the girls’ race and Alex Flaherty came 92nd (1st counter) in the boys’ race.
In the Senior category (U19) Emily Field was 44th (1st counter) in the girls’ race; and Reuben Mantle was 51st (3rd counter) in the boys’ race.
Well done to everyone!
For the team competition, the counties were divided into four groups, with each group containing counties of similar sizes according to the number of eligible pupils. The ESSA website refers to the groups as ‘big’, ‘medium’, ‘not so big’, and ‘little’ counties! North Yorkshire and West Yorkshire were with nine other counties in the ‘medium’ group. Up to eight athletes could compete in each gender/age group team, the first six finishers made up the team result, and the age-group results were added together to give a total score for each county.
In the boy’s competition, Devon was placed first overall, with North Yorkshire in 2nd place and West Yorkshire 7th. Cheshire won the girls’ competition, North Yorkshire was 3rd and West Yorkshire 8th.
