Comfortable Lead

Irvine, Ayrshire, Scotland

This is my son Ben Cameron, he is running in the (D) under 14 category boys event his race was shorter than Anna MacFadyens being just three kilometres, but in similar fashion, after a hectic start with 200 boys screaming away from the line, Ben pushed hard to take an early lead in his race and continued to stretch that lead until he crested the final hill, whereupon he felt dizzy and short of breath.  Fortunately he just about recovered in time with Harry Henricksen closing fast to outsprint him to the line and win a hard fought and extremely exciting race.  That is Ben's first national title.
