England School Honors for Thetford Brothers


Two brothers, who run for Thetford AC and Suffolk, had the honor of making their England debuts at the weekend at the SIAB Home Countries Cross Country Championships in Dublin, Ireland. Finishing in the top 8 at the English Schools Championships last weekend earned James and Ben Peck a place on the England Schools team to take on their equivalent athletes from Scotland, Wales and Ireland.

James and Ben were both part of the Junior Boys team with the race being contested over 4km. James came home in 7th place with his brother Ben close behind in 8th place.

England claimed 7 out of the first 8 finishers in the Junior Boys race meaning that England successfully took the team honors.

To earn the right to represent their Country was an outstanding achievement for them both and one they can be immensely proud of.
