England take the titles at British and Irish Junior Mountain Running Championships and Junior Home International

England made a clean sweep of the team titles at the Junior Home International mountain races which were part of the British & Irish Junior Mountain Running Championships held in Peebles, Scotland, on 16 September.

In the U20 Men’s race Scotland’s U17 National XC champion Freddie Carcas (Edinburgh AC) was a runaway winner. Behind him there was a close battle between three English athletes with Joe Dugdale (Copeland/ Cumberland Fell Runners) just pipping Rory Domville (Reading AC) for the silver medal. With Nathan Smith (City of York, Ian Wilcock) in 4th England were clear winners of the team title. 

Scarlet Dale (Lancaster & Morecambe, Colin Gemson) of England took the U20 Women’s title to cap a great season in which she finished 7th in the World Championships and 6th in the European Championships. Fiona Bunn (Abingdon, Bernard Wilkins) of England had a great run to take the silver medal ahead of Scotland’s Lauren Dickson (Lasswade, Linda Smith). With Imogen Burrow (Helm Hill/Kendal) in 5th the team title went to England.

England dominated the U17 Boys race with Matthew Mackay (Rossendale), Joe Hudson (Keighley & Craven) and Euan Brennan (Ilkley, Andrew Henderson) taking gold, silver and bronze respectively and with that the team title. 

Lynn McKenna (Giffnock North, Dudley Walker) of Scotland went one place better than last year to win the U17 Girls race. England’s Rosie Woodhams (Dallam Sports Association) and Emily Field (Bingley) took silver and bronze and, with Briony Holt (Clayton le Moors) in 4th, England were clear winners of the team competition.
