Grasmere Guides Under 14s – 28 Aug

U14-1000

Fred Reeves (6 times winner of the Senior Guides race in the 1970s) with the first three in boys in the Under 14s race, having just presented them with their medals. Fred now lives in Wisconsin and was back in Grasmere for the first time since 2000. This was special reunion with his old rival Tommy Sedgewick, the new bell man at Grasmere Sports, who won the Senior Guides race on the four occasions in the 1970s when Fred didn’t. 

The Under 14s winner, Chris Richards (80), missed the course record by only a second. His Dad, Duncan, who was there to see him cross the finishing line helped me complete a successful Joss Naylor Traverse a few years ago and it was great to say hello again. Well done, Chris!
