Melanie goes for the hat-trick

John Hodgson writes

"Dallam's International Junior fell runner Melanie Hyder is going for a hat-trick of successes in this year's English U14 Girls Championship this weekend (21st May).
So far this outstanding youngster (just 12 year's old) has won races at Ilkley and Telford.
Not only can Melanie give the best boys of her own age group a fright ,but senior club runners can't stay with the pace she sets either".

Good Luck Melanie!

More info about these races ,which I have received from Steve Fletcher of Cumbria Athletics.

"The second race of the series is at Bram Crag, St. John's in the Vale, near Keswick (GR319214) this Sunday. The races are also part of the English Junior Championship series so there should be a good turnout (for the last two years there's been over 150 runners).

12:00 U8
12:10 U10
12:30 U12
13:00 U14
13:30 U16
14:00 U18/U20

The cakes are usually excellent. There's also the senior Helvellyn race at 12:00 so ther'll be loads of runners around."
