Super Season for Matthew

Year 10 pupil Matthew Knowles has enjoyed an outstanding running season.  He was part of the LRGS teams which won the District Cross-Country championships in all age groups.  Along with Joseph Twigg (Upper Sixth), Matthew went on to represent Lancashire in the English Schools Cross Country Championships, finishing in an excellent 28th position.  

Matthew posted an exceptional time of 21 minutes 32 seconds in the 3.8 mile Set Run. The Set Run is the school's annual challenge race which has run since at least 1912. 

After a series of fell race victories in the Kendal Winter League, Matthew has also won the opening fixture in the English Junior Fell Running Championships at Todd Crag.  Best wishes for the rest of the Championships!
