Barlick Fell runner Isaac Reeday from Hetton finished strongly to take first place in the Under Nines race, whilst seven year old Robert Shuttleworth from Gargrave was in second place and claimed not only the first local prize but the McKell shield for the highest placed male competitor from any category.  Mia McGoldrick from Giggleswick continued her fine form of recent wins carrying on a family tradition as her late maternal Grandma Karen Slater still holds the senior ladies race record at Gargrave show.       Read more……..
