Ben Phillips, running for Suffolk U13s at 2019 Cau Inter Counties


Haverhill Running Club junior Ben Phillips had his first taste of representing his county, finishing in 193rd position in the under-13 race at the Loughborough Inter Counties Cross Country event.

The event – which was split into U13, U15, U17, U20 and Senior categories for both men and women – on Saturday, March 9 had more than 1,000 entrants from across the nation and was the biggest race Phillips had yet competed in.

He did well to finish in a time of 14 minutes and 23 seconds.
