Scotland road runners are getting ready for another international appearance – with the Frank Duffy 10-Mile Road Race taking lace this Saturday in Ireland.
It is another opportunity opening up under the Road Running and Cross Country Commission’s policy to try and increase these chance of international action
Six athletes were selected, with Derek Rae to represent Scotland shortly before he heads to Brazil for the Paralympics.
Scotland Men: Douglas Selman (Corstorphine AAC), Mike Crawley (Corstorphine AAC), Derek Rae (Fife AC)
Scotland Women: Nicola Gauld (Aberdeen AAC), Jennifer Wetton (Central AC), Jenny Bannerman (Inverness Harriers)
Many congratulations to the six athletes selected and their coaches and families as well as the clubs who have developed them over a number of years.
The Dublin race follows on from events in Northern Ireland and Denmark earlier in 2016 when there were 5K and 3K opportunities and a half marathon respectively.
The Team Manager for the trip to Ireland will be Ron Morrison.
