Under 14 Boys Winner

Gordonstoun, Moray, Scotland

Ben had a heavy week of running ahead of him culminating in probably the premier cross country running event in Scotland, the National cross Country race at Falkirk, he was under strict instruction not to use up too much energy in his race and save himself for the weekend.  the problem is that his two main rivals the Milne brothers from Elgin were also taking part and as usual they got off to a flyer leaving Ben trailing behind in their wake.  Gradually Ben piled on the pressure and he managed to win the under 14 (D) section boys north district secondary cross country race by a short margin and save some energy.  Doug (his coach) would doubtless have been pleased.
