Background

Ben made the step up to road racing in 2014 after a successful career on the track as a steeplechaser. He has competed for Uganda, his home country, on a number of occasions both in the 3000m steeplechase and cross country events.

Ben had a very successful first series of road races in the UK, notching up a number of wins in a short space of time and securing a podium place in all of his races.

As well as winning the 2015 Wilmslow and Cardiff Half Marathons, Ben was a pacer for the lead men’s group at Brighton Marathon.

Benefiting from living and training on the Run-Fast camp in Iten Kenya Ben will continue to develop his road racing career before eventually moving up to the marathon.
