Steeplechase Star

George Beardmore took part in a 3000m steeplechase in Leicester on Saturday 2 June, running a time of 10:05 in his first ever steeplechase. This result meant that he has qualified for the England Under 20 Championships in Bedford on 15-16 June.

Following on from this, George improved his time to 9:56.4 in the Men’s Midland League in Gloucester this week, moving him to fifth in the UK Under 20 rankings. George said, “I’m delighted with this given that I will have two more seasons as an Under 20 and it is my first ever year of steeplechasing.”

George’s next race will take place in Bedford in two weeks which will be his first ever national track championships. We would like to congratulate George and wish him the very best in his next race.
