Last weekend Year 6 pupil, Holly competed in the Lancashire County Cross Country Championships at Witton Park. Holly placed well in 9th and was a counter in the team’s 2nd place getting her a medal which she was really pleased with. She has also won a 3rd place team medal in the Red Rose Cross Country series this winter. Holly only really started running ‘properly’ at the beginning of last year with her 1st race in May in the Pendle & Burnley GP series subsequently joining Rossendale Harriers and training and racing regularly with 30 races completed in 2021 and managing to get 3rd best course record time at the Hyndburn 5K parkrun for her age category. She is now racing against athletes from clubs all over the region and improving with every race getting ever closer to regional podium finishes. Three Races remain in the Mid Lancashire Cross Country series and then there are the Kendal Winter League races and both FRA and BOFRA fell races throughout the year to enjoy! Holly looks up to local GB runner Eleanor Bolton and hopes to follow in her footsteps. Well done Holly we are really proud of you!
