Middle Distance Squad - BMC PB Classic, Milton Keynes

Ben breaks his own club record and powers his way to top of the rankings!

With his time of 8:23.05, he is only 5 seconds outside of the World U18 Championship Qualifying time - although Ben has already stated that his commitment this summer is to triathlon, where he also excels.
