Sam Watson – Under Twenty three winner of the Ben Nevis race

September 10, 2008

Congratulations to one of our players, mid-fielder Sam Watson who has just returned from taking part in the prestigious Ben Nevis fell race. There were 600 runners in the race which included an entry of 25 European runners. The athletes had to run up and down Britains highest mountain ( 4406 feet ). Sam, running in the colours of the Wharfedale Harriers won the under twenty three`s  trophy – a marvellous achievement.

He was not the only runner taking part from our club, but the older guy wasn`t quite as quick!


Got something to say?
