Blessed Trinity student Nicholas has got a county call up.
The Under 15 Clayton-le-Moors Harriers runner came third in the Pendle Under 17s Fell Race recently and won a Lancashire vest.
"I am excited, fell runs are hard but I do enjoy them," said the 15-year-old.
"I will compete for Lancashire at Rossendale in June."
Nicholas is a regular at the Burnley ParkRun, chalking up more than 50 of the 5k races, with a personal best of 18 minutes and 25 seconds.
