On Saturday 11 January Alex George, Marling School Sixth Form student represented Great Britain at the Bupa Great Edinburgh Cross-Country held at Holyrood Park.

The Great Britain and Northern Ireland team were victorious in the International Challenge. The 36-strong team won the title with 159 points, 13 ahead of Team Europe while the USA were third with 203.

Alex competed in the Junior Men’s 6km race. The race started with a large leading group, but it was reported that Alex cleverly worked his way through to cross the line first out of the six GB & NI runners in eighth place with a time of 19:24.

Alex was delighted with how he performed in his first race wearing GB & NI colours, he said:

“It was surprisingly fun. I didn’t go off hard and instead I sat in the pack and worked my way through and it worked brilliantly for me; that’s how I run my races. It was awesome to run in a GB vest; I didn’t expect to get picked for this because I only took up running around three years ago so to be here now and first Brit home is unbelievable. It’s great how far I’ve come.”
