Scotland places on offer at Liverpool

Sunday 2nd November 2014

Liverpool cross country 2013


Scotland vests and are up for grabs for our top endurance athletes competing at the European Cross Country Trial event at Sefton Park in Liverpool.

Up to 24 athletes will be selected and supported by scottishathletics to contest the races on Merseyside on Saturday 29 November.

Under the terms of the Road Running and Cross Country Selection Policy on this website, there’s an opportunity for us to select up to four athletes for both men and women in the three age groups – Senior, Under-23 and Under-20.

Current form will be used to make those selections and decisions will be communicated to the selected athletes in the week beginning November 17.

The British Cross Challenge races on November 29 – from Under-20 upwards – double as trials for the European Athletics Association’s showpiece event in Bulgaria on December 14.

Closing date for entries for Liverpool is November 21 and all athletes – regardless of Scottish selection – must enter themselves for this race. This can be completed online on the British Athletics website.

Financial support from scottishathletics takes the form of a contribution to both travel and accommodation for the trip south – but again – athletes are encouraged to make their arrangements in advance of the selection date.

If you wish to be considered for the Scotland selection and financial assistance, please let Mark Pollard aware that you are planning to compete at Liverpool by emailing:

*Please note that athletes make their own arrangements in terms of entering the event and there is no travel (bus) or accommodation supplied by scottishathletics*
