Harriers Juniors celebrated the their final fell training session of the year with a fantastic "Treasure Hunt by Headtorch", the object being to find as much treasure (chocolate/sweets) as possible!  Armed with maps and some serious competition between groups, our intrepid treasure-hunters bombed around the muddy fields at great speed (that was probably a bit faster than the adult coaches were comfortable with) and once all the loot had been found, everyone ran back to the Squinting Cat pub in order to warm-up and eat chips.

2018 was the first year that Harrogate Harriers have offered specific fell training for our Junior section and much credit must go to Helene Whitaker and Jon Whitaker for making it happen.  We have some fantastic young runners who will be competing at all levels during 2019, it will be an exciting  year.
