SV sponsored athlete George Day wins Orion Harrier's Mercury 10 mile race


SV sponsored athlete, George Day

SV sponsored athlete and Orion Harrier, George Day, ran an impressive race on Saturday 9 February at The Mercury - a tough 10 mile cross-country race through Epping Forest - and won it in 1:03:27!

Although still classed as a junior athlete, 20-year-old George has been selected for the Essex senior men's team inter-counties at Loughborough in March.

In addition to his cross-country season, George is in full training for this year's London Marathon and all is going well.

In 2017, George ran his first marathon - the London Marathon - in 3 hours 15 minutes. This year, he's hoping for sub 3 hours but he won't predict an exact time!

On 17 March, he'll be taking part in the Reading Half Marathon, in preparation for the big day in April.

George, we salute you! Keep up the good work - we are all behind you!
