The PECO League, named after its main sponsor, the Print & Embroidery Company (in case you were wondering) comprises five races for both juniors and seniors. This season the programme was as follows:
Race 2: 16thDec 2018 at Temple Newsam, Leeds
Race 3: 6thJan 2019 at West Park, Leeds
Race 4: 20thJan 2019 at Crimple Valley, Harrogate
Race 5: 10thFeb 2019 at Roundhay Park, Leeds
Ten of the club’s juniors competed in the league, and while they were few in number, they produced some fantastic performances. So, congratulations to all who took part and particularly William, Mia, Izzy, Holly and Owen, who completed sufficient races to achieve an overall position in their respective categories.

The league is very friendly, the races well-organised and competitive, and the venues varied, it’s just a pity we’ve not been able to persuade more of our young Harriers to give it a go – maybe next season!
