One of the UK’s top junior athletes Elliot Giles of Birchfield Harriers won a thrilling Salts Techstep Lichfield Dash today in Lichfield just catching 2010 Dash champion James Whitehouse (also of Birchfield Harriers) virtually on the line to snatch the coveted Dash Trophy.
Giles is one of the UK’s top 20 U20 800m runners in the UK this year and big things are predicted of him. He was full of praise for the event and how special he felt the win was for him:
