Alex Till at the British and Irish Junior Fell Championships

From John Hodgson

"As I just so happened to be passing through Abergavenny on Sunday morning, I thought I would take a look at the fell racing!

It takes lots of hard work and determination to get selected for England and you would want to do your best on the day. Well, Alex did just that. Running for the U 16 Team, he finished 8th, but more important, he was the third finisher for the team award which won them the gold medal.
England 1,2,8 =11 points
Scotland 3,4,5 =12 points

He said he had a burning sensation in his foot on the way down and when he took his shoe off he found out why."

Conglatulations Alex from us all at Dallam.
