Scotland selections for Euro Cross trial at Liverpool

Thursday 15th November 2018

British Cross Challenge at Liverpool

The British Cross Challenge and Euro Cross trials in Liverpool will be centre stage in the cross country season on Saturday 24 November.

And scottishathletics are delighted to confirm Scotland vest opportunities for 20 athletes.

The selections are based on recent form including the Lindsays Short Course XC at Lanark last weekend and, although there is no international team race at Sefton Park on Merseyside, we regard this as an important international opportunity for those picked.

Scottish athletes have performed well in Liverpool over the past few years and strong representation with the GB and NI teams for the Euro Cross is very much the target – with performances on November 24 also having a bearing on selections for the Great International XC at Stirling on January 12.

Congratulations to all the athletes selected and their families and coaches. We also very much acknowledge the role played by clubs in the development of these athletes.

International Handbook

scottishathletics support the selected athletes via Joma kit and with financial assistance towards travel and accommodation for the visit to Liverpool as part of the opportunities listed in our International Handbook.

Euro Cross places for Holland on December 9 are available with GB and NI in each of these age groups, with dozens of Scots also expected to compete in the U17, U15 and U13 races at Sefton Park that day.
