JHMT's Support

At present he's a middle distance runner at both 800m and 1500m. Ethan has been very busy during the winter season taking part in cross country races which have proved very productive with a series of strong results including coming 8th out of the UK in his age range.

This very dedicated and hard working young and talented athlete who rains every day but Fridays, alongside his studies, has also won county titles on the track and Cross Country. Ethan has also recently qualified to compete in the London mini marathon again this year and is training hard in preparation.

Ethan said: ' The Inspire Award funding will really help me prepare for the track season ahead by getting some new clothing like shorts and shoes so I will be able to exceed my goals.'

Simon Taylor Inspire Awards project lead said: ' There is no doubt about Ethan's ability and commitment . We are delighted to make this award to Someone we expect to hear a lot about in the future.'
