Junior Fell Inter Counties

Fell1The Merseyside county junior fell running teams for the U15s and U17s took on runners from the other British counties in the Inter-County Fell Championships on Sunday, June 13. A classic fell race called “Up the Nab” in the Peak District provided the necessary off road mountainous climb and descent.

We turned out four teams comprised of boys and girls teams in both the U15 and U17 categories. Coming home with 3rd place and Bronze team medals in the U15 girls and narrowly missing out on medals in the U17 boys by finishing 4th.  Excellent turn out across the age categories and we hope to build on this our first ever inter-counties fell running medal. Superb effort from all runners who represented Merseyside.

This year a squad has been forming under the guidance of experienced fell coach Nigel Crompton, with support from Sarah and Ronan Kearney. Training for months on Heswall Dales and Moel Famau, if you want to take on the fells as part of your running please get in touch through your club or directly through the MCAA fell secretary.
