Jack is the Man after winning first England vest

JACK Millar has been one of the most consistent and improved runners in the west country this winter and that fact has now been recognised with his first England vest.

The Bristol & West AC runner has been selected to represent England in the Home Countries Cross Country International in Nottingham on Saturday March 24th.

Millar’s call-up comes after a great winter in which the Oxford University student finished fifth in the British Student Championships and then recently 16th in the English Cross Country Championships – a massive improvement on his 50th place just a year ago – to lead Bristol & West AC to the team silver medals.

Millar, who is coached by Dave Bedwell, has also posted a personal best on the boards with 8mins 26.68secs indoors at Sheffield.

But his first England vest is the highlight of his career to date and not bad for someone who only started running through the Avon Schools’ system five years ago finishing 292nd in his first English Schools’ Championships!
