British Athletics website team announcement 

Six mountain runners will represent GB and NI at the Memorial Partigiani Stellina on Sunday 28 August – including Scottish duo Scout Adkin and Kirsty Dickson.

This is the first time since 2006 that Federations have been invited to send teams to the event which used to be a regular fixture in the International mountain running calendar. Six athletes will represent British Athletics as athletes from around the world take part in this revived event.

The team contains Scout Adkin, who won up and down bronze at the recent European Off Road Running Championships in Spain.

Scout was also part of two medal-winning teams at the event last month and is one of Britain’s in-form mountain runners this summer.

Kirsty Dickson is also called up for the team in Italy. Kirsty was part of the Senior Women’s gold-medal winning team at the Euros as she came home as third counter in the uphill race.

Well done to Scout and Kirsty on their selections and their families and coaches.
