UN­DER-13 BOYS

KENDAL AC beat Alder­shot in a thrilling and close race as James Bowen pipped Alder­shot an­chor­man Ethan Scott in the fi­nal stage to see the north-west team tri­umph.

Harry Bowen, James’ twin brother, ran the sec­ond leg and Henry Hunter the open­ing stage as the boys from the Lake District took the win.

They are coached by Steve Pri­est­ley and com­bine cross­coun­try run­ning with fell run­ning – and a bit of track rac­ing from time to time – to build their stamina and speed.

“We’re very happy to win and it was so hard,” the boys all agreed.

In the past, the club’s women have ex­celled with run­ners like Sarah Tun­stall and Re­becca Robin­son but could a new gen­er­a­tion of young men be ready to fly the club’s flag?
