Big brother to the rescue

John Hodgson writes

"The English Junior fell relay championships were held at Sedbergh on Sunday 24 September.Representing Dallam RC were the Till brothers,who conveniently fitted the correct age categories ,u12 (Ben),u14(Sam) and u16(Alex).

Each runner has increasing distances to run up Winder which is a steep ascent and descent by anyone's standards.

Ben started off for us and came back 8th of nearly 20 teams.He handed over to Sam who made up one place to leave Alex lying 7th.
Pushing himself to the limit,Alex made up enough places to achieve the FRA Bronze Medal position.That's what big brothers are for though,isn't it?

Congratulations boys from all at Dallam for your fine efforts."

I second that John and we appreciate all of your work with the Juniors.
