Yvette Baker Trophy

Last edited: Sun 25 Jul 2021

AIRE’s junior team travelled to deepest Gloucestershire for the Yvette Baker trophy this month. The race was held at the beautiful Westonbirt National Arboreteum... (click Read more to find out what happened)

It was a closed junior event for the qualifying clubs and parents/drivers. Unfortunately, the AIRE team was ‘pinged’ a couple of days before the event meaning that Katie and Bethan had to isolate. Fortunately, we have encouraged Eleanor to brush the dust off her compass and enter yellow course for us so we were only one short of a full team. Tom was first off on the green course and had a great run coming 16th out of 70 runners. We had 3 runners on light green James M14, Annie W16 and Megan W14 who all finished in the top half of the results. Kate, Jack, Charlie and Eleanor all ran a very tricky and long yellow course scoring more points for the team. Kate enjoyed her day “ The course was fun and the treetop walk was cool because it was so high up.” Thank you to all parents who supported the event. AIRE came 10th overall. And here are a few photos. The action shots are courtesy of Scott Bailey on Flickr.
