There was a great performances from the Wooler Running Club team who travelled down to the Howgills on the North Yorkshire/Cumbria border on Sunday.

Claire Bagness, Sarah Robson and Jane Ord took part in the Trail 13.

Claire came in second female and 15th overall (out of 92) in a great time of 2.16.42. Sarah finished in 2.38.09 (9th female) and Jane in 2.50.05 (17th female, after missing a direction sign and adding an extra mile).

In the Trail 26, Henrietta Bolton Carter came in second female and 33rd overall out of 139 in a time of 4.37.54.

It was a really tough course, four miles of steep climbing at the start to the summits above Sedbergh before some dramatic descents, then tough going underfoot on rocky paths and fell.
