Year 11, Ben Dijkstra has been crowned the English Schools’ Athletic Association Cross Country Champion for the third time after securing an impressive win in the Intermediate Boys race last week.
Ben finished the race in 17 minutes 43 seconds, 13 seconds ahead of the rest of the runners whilst running for Beacon Hill Striders. Not only did Ben secure individual success in the race, he also led the county team to the team title!
This race came after Ben won the East Midlands Qualifier for the Virgin Mini Marathon which will be held on Sunday 26th April. Ben also has his first triathlon of the season this Sunday over in Portugal.
Congratulations Ben and Good Luck for future races!
