#CountryKids Fell Running

Country Kids from Coombe Mill Family Farm Holidays Cornwall

Now the proper winter is here the Kendal Winter League series of races has started again. Our first one was on the nearby Scout Scar:

It was a cold and increasingly wet day as my son checked out the route and worked out his tactics:

My son then joined 80 other under 12s on the start line for a 1200 metre race up the hill and back:

They were off like hares across the field! My son was 1 minute faster than last year and had a pretty fast race but wasn't in the top of the finishers (still waiting for final official results!).

Today he ran for his primary school in his first cross country competition. On a very muddy course he had to finish the race clutching a shoe in one hand:

Hopefully this mishap won't happen too often!
