U15 Edinburgh 2017 1

The chaotic and very fast dash off the line at the start of the Under 15 Boys race over 4km on a very flat and rather dull 4 times 1km loop.  Ben is No 166 in his wee red vest and as you can probably see he does rather lose out on body height, strength and maturity compared with the U15 giants of East and West districts.  Ben finished in 29th position  with Hamish Armit, no 178 and David McNair No. 189 in the pale blue vests finishing 1st and 2nd respectively.  At least Sunny McGrath, No 170, in the red North District vest finished a very creditabe 4th.  Of all the races though this was far and away the most mundane and repetitive of course layouts.
