Kira, Girls Wimpole 5K Champion

 

As our juniors go from strength to strength they are starting to enjoy some really successful runs and triathlons, winning events and getting podium finishes, which is great. It rewards all their efforts at training and inspires both themselves and the other juniors. Success is infectious.

 

 

 

One example of this is Kira Shipley who has come on in leaps and bounds since she started coming to the BRJ's regular Wednesday evening junior training sessions. Kira is now regularly in the running to win her age category of U10, at each event she takes part in. .

Kira as well as regularly winning her age category at the various Park Runs, recently won her age category at the Eye 3k and was first home in the Under 16 Girls category at the Wimpole 5K, and was 7th overall, beating some girls 5 years her senior, which is a fantastic performance.
