Bens Profile

Ben had a breakthrough year in 2010, smashing his personal best for the marathon by over 4 minutes with 2.16.46. This qualified him for the European Championships and Commonwealth Games, where he finished 24th and 11th respectively.

Ben would be the first to admit he was not the most naturally talented athlete, but fortunately he found that he could train himself to be a very good one. Despite a full-time job in advertising he manages to focus on specific targets, without losing his sense of perspective or humour. He runs up to 120 miles a week, and is very grateful that his work allow him to be flexible with his time!

He has been involved in competitive running since his first school cross-country race aged 11, where he was 103rd at the county-championships, and has improved steadily ever since. He runs for Aldershot, Farnham and District, and is now based in Sydney, Australia.

"My current goals include qualfying for major Championships in 2014, and reaching my marathon potential!"

He is sponsored by ASICS and is extremely grateful for their support.
