Blessed Trinity Roman Catholic College student Nicolas is a record breaker.

The Under 15 Clayton-le-Moors Harriers runner raced around two laps of Queen's Park, 2.5km, in nine minutes and 39 seconds to smash a record held for a few years.

"It was held by Tiernan Crorken, who was a good runner at school a couple of years ago and it's proved tough to break," said Nicolas.

Nicolas has just chalked up 50 Burnley Parkruns, with a personal best of 18 minutes and 38 seconds, and recently represented Burnley at the Lancashire Schools Cross Country Finals at Witton Park where he finished 13th.
