A keen cross country runner whilst at Cranmore, Will B (16) has been competing in a new series of races called the British Athletics Cross Challenge and, after winning the U17 race in Milton Keynes a few weeks ago, it was decided to enter him into the U20 race in Liverpool; this was also being used as selection for the European trials. Will came 5th, gaining automatic selection. This is an amazing achievement when one takes into consideration he is only 16 years old.
As a result of this race he has been selected to run for the GB Junior Men in the European Cross Country Champs in Lisbon on Sunday, 8th December.
As you can imagine, we are all thrilled that Will is to be adding a GB vest to his 2 England vests.
