Eight runners have been selected to represent Scotland at Nasego Vertical, a Valsir World Cup Mountain Running event in Italy in September. The course is uphill only and covers a 1000m of climb in only 4.2km.

Jacob Adkin (Moorfoot) and Kirsty Dickson (Carnethy) gained automatic selection from the UKA World uphill only trial.

Joining them are Rory Abernethy (Ochil),  Scout Adkin (Moorfoot), Alasdair Campbell (Cambuslang), Jamie Crowe (Central), Alice Goodall (Edinburgh UHH) and Holly Page (Carnethy).

The team should gain invaluable experience from competing in a world cup event and hopefully use this as a stepping stone for GB selection. There are numerous uphill only events in Europe for the specialist climbers in the endurance community.

Congratulations to athletes, coaches and families on their selection.
