Over the Jubilee weekend some of our Calder Valley team mates had something to celebrate.

At the European selection race at Sedbergh on Saturday one of our future stars Max Wharton placed a fantastic 3rd place and earned himself a GB vest to run in the under 19s race which takes place on 7th July in Turkey. Awesome result when you consider that Max is only 15!!!!!!

At the local Jubilee race on Sunday from Wadsworth Tim Black took 1st place and with Robert Paradise and Mark Wharton sealed 1st team prize. Not to be outdone the ladies followed suit with Holly Page 1st lady and with her team mates Trudi Entwistle and Kate Mansell also sealed the team prize.

At the tough Helvellyn 24km race in the Lakes Tim Ellis is showing some excellent form taking the win from Paul Cornforth of Borrowdale by nearly 5 minutes. It was also good to see Steve Smithies coming back to racing after injury placing an excellent 12th.

And hot off the press Holly Page and Helen Fines have been selected to run for England at the International Snowdon race in July. It’s all happening.
