Leeds Schools Trials – Nunroyd Park, Guiseley – Saturday 10 December 2011

Skyrack hosted the trials this year and it was a very damp and chilly day for all of the youngsters and a firtst rate turn out of our club runners all desperately hoping for selection.

Dominic Peterson(1) and Billy Dawson (2nd) ran a great ‘Junior Boys’ race they were together up at the front for the whole race making it look so easy. These boys appear to have a very promising future!

In the ‘Junior Girls’ Race Cleo Gorringe (3rd) never seems to fail us! With a year young Kimberley Eastwood(4th) surprising not only herself but her mum as well, she had a cracking race! Laura Benson (12th) albeit full of cold ran her best and got a selection letter having missed out by one place last year, she went home very pleased with herself!

The ‘Junior Boys’ had a very strong field and all our boys ran to the best of their ability, Keiran Savage(3rd) Jack Allison (4th)Sean Flanagan (5th) Zac Widera (7th) Dom Owens (9th) and Ben Tootle (13th) made the race very exciting to watch, well done to all these boys!

We had the lovely Ellie Doolley (7th) running for the ‘Inter Girls’ she looked well and appears to have no problems deviating from her race walking on these occasions!

Our elder ‘schoolboys’ Elliot Todd (1st) and Gordon Benson (2nd), in what may be their last schools race, appeared to jog around the park having no problems in their selection as ‘Senior Boys’!

Almost all our runners will be competing in the West Yorkshire Schools Trials at Shipley in February – well done!
