We offer our warm congratulations to all those selected and to their families, coaches and clubs. Winning a Scotland vest is a tangible reward for commitment to the sport and in many cases years of hard work and dedication.

Once again it is good to see so many clubs represented across these selections, including our University clubs who also have a key role in developing athletes at an important stage.

A number of those picked were previously announced by us for Scotland duty at the Celtic Nations XC at Renfrew on Saturday 13 January and thus face two consecutive weekends of international duty.

The Senior races at Parliament Hill are also trials for the World Cross coming up in March 2024.
