October 20, 2021

A 15-year-old runner at Haberdashers’ Monmouth Schools has sealed his place to represent Wales in next month’s British Athletics Cross Challenge Liverpool.

Henry (wearing the number 269) was the second fastest Welsh athlete in the Under-17 men’s section of the Cardiff Cross Challenge in Llandaff.

The Year 11 student finished 14th overall in the Under-17 men’s race in Cardiff against some of the best runners in the UK.

Henry, who lives in Monmouth, is now looking forward to competing for Wales at Sefton Park, Liverpool, on Saturday 27th November.

Henry often pounds the streets of the town with his father, Huw, a Maths teacher and running coach at Monmouth School for Boys.
