Ben Nairn XC 2

The U15 Boys cross country race in Nairn features dunes, woodland and very mixed terrain, with the exception of hills this would be a race that I would expect Ben to perform well in and indeed he did but unfortunately a very poor start didn't help his cause because Nairn has quite a few narrow tracks where it is very difficult to pass and he found himself a wee bit trapped behind the racer in front, whilst those already in the lead were able to pull further ahead. In the end he still did very well finishing in a time of 15 minutes and 29 seconds in third place.
