Round seven of 15 in the Bourne Town Harriers Junior Winter Series took place on Sunday at the Lincs League Cross Country event at Riseholme, with eight athletes competing.

For the boys, Inigo Gillick and Matthew Colman ran in the under 11 race, both dealing well with the terrain to finish third and fifth respectively.

Daniel Lawrance ran next as an under 13 and sprinted up the finishing straight for 11th place.

The final race for the boys was the under 15s in which Cameron Everist and Scott Taylor ran. Both boys did superbly, Cameron coping well with a tight finish to win. Scott was only seconds behind in fourth.

Cameron now moves up to lead the Harriers boys series, having overtaken his brother Toby, who was unavailable to run, and Daniel Lawrance remains third.

For the girls, Elin James was first off in the under 13s and maintained the good speed she has shown all series to finish fifth and see her remain second in the Harriers series.

Molly Bennet in the under 15s gave a determined run to move up to third in the series.

Last to go was Beth Howells, who competed in the under 17 race, and whose sixth place allows her to continue to lead the girls junior Harriers series nearing the half way point.

Although not included in the Harriers Senior Winter Series, Mick Howells represented the club in the senior men’s race, while Claire Steels maintained her sequence of good results by finishing second in the women’s race.
