Juniors Racing on Epsom Downs

Posted by James Desmond on 8 November 2017

It was unseasonably warm up on Epsom at the start of November which made for some super racing in the 1st Downs League fixture of the season. There were more participants (over 200) and the general standard was higher than I recall for any previous event, and so well done to the 10 juniors who raced so well.

The image below is of the very keenly contested start to the U13 race.

This is a notoriously challenging place to race when making first appearance as so difficult to judge the effort on the long hill, and so the good runs by debutants Darcey, Poppy and George are even better when considered in this regard. Also noteworthy are the excellent results by Gabby, Lucy and Spencer who all seem be on top form at the moment.

The only team performance we recorded was U13 girls who finished a very creditable 4th place in a competitive field.

Note that the distances are approximate and so not accurate enough to do calculations of pace of run.
