This page shows the results of races that Junior Ilkley Harriers have run in, most recent races first. (If we've missed any results, please let us know).
In the U8's James Turland finished in 3rd place in 3.02. In the U10 race Sam Wood was 31st overall and 6th U10 in 8.35. In the U12 race Josh Crane was 12th overall and 5th U12 in 7.09. In the U14's Tom Crane was 14th overall in 7.22 with Ruth Kitchen 23rd overall, but 1st U14 girl in 7.59. Ruth's time would probably have been much quicker except she was pacing herself for two laps. All these times are quicker than previous best times. Well done to everyone.
This was the final race in this league and it was a true Cross-Country experience with ankle deep mud and very testing courses. We had 11 Junior Harriers running, but pride of place in this report is given to the U15 Girls who on the day gained 2nd place ensuring them a third team place overall. Out of a field of 32 runners Jenny Dybeck was 7th in 21.26, Ruth Kitchen 8th in 21.53 and Catherine Gibbons 11th in 22.28. It has been a pleasure to watch this trio go from strength to strength throughout the season and their bronze medals were just reward for all their efforts. We had two finishers in the U13 Girls - Emily Kerr 31st in 14.40 and Celine Cheshire in 15.45. Although we did not have a team placing at this race, the team finished 8th overall in the league. In the U15 Boys Danny Elliott was our sole runner finishing in 31st place in 32.47. Our U17 Boys have had to compete against more experienced runners, however they have represented the club well and credit must be given to their commitment to the team. James Wardman was 25th in 26.28, Daniel Roebuck 26th in 27.07 and Simon Chapman 27th in 29.51. This gave the boys a 4th team position. We would like to thank all the Junior Harriers who have competed in any of the races because it has been brilliant to see Ilkley represented in both junior and senior competitions.
Ilkley Junior Harriers' Catherine Gibbons has been selected to run for North Yorkshire. She qualified at the North Yorkshire and Craven Schools Cross Country Championships held at Skipton on Saturday. In driving sleet on a muddy course, Catherine was placed fourth in the Intermediate Girls 2750 metres.

In the U15 Girls race we had 15th Jenny Dybeck in 14.16, 20th Ruth Kitchen in 14.48 and 23rd Catherine Gibbons in 15.01. This brilliant packing gave a 3rd position for the team.

Well done to all the juniors who ran in the first race of the series at York. We had 12 juniors running in 4 different age groups. We did not have complete teams in the boys U17 and U15 races but the 3 who ran (Elliot Dawson, 42nd in 21.17 in the U17) and David Schneider and Danny Elliott (40th and 41st in 19.12 and 19.15 respectively in the U15) were our first junior boys to do so since JIH was set up. The standard of competition was extremely high and all credit to the boys for completing their races. In the girls races we had an A and a B team in the U13's. Our A team was 6th overall (17th Brittany Dawson, 18th Fiona Jordan and 27th Louisa Clark) Our B team were 10th equal with Harrogate (29th Emily Kerr, 32nd Emma Davidson and 41st Melissa Hodgson).

We had two teams in the inaugural FRA Junior English Relay Championships.

we weren't able to field an U16 runner on the day we couldn't be awarded
the Silver medal. Maybe next year! Our boys team had a fantastic run too:
Josh Crane 14th overall in 17:04; Harry Liuba- Carmichael 13th overall
