Two Scottish athletes have been selected for GB and NI for the trail events at the 2024 European Off-Road Running Championships.

The event will take place in Annecy, France, between 31 May and 2 June and mountain runners will be selected at a later date.

In-form Meryl Cooper (Doug Stewart, Deeside Runners) goes in the women’s trail race, fresh from crossing the line as the first British finisher at Trans Grand Canaria 46k in February.

Georgia Tindley (Angela Mudge, Highland Hill Runners) also has experience of these champs and is included with Meryl in the Women’s team.

Team Leader Anne Buckley said: ‘After the successes of the trail teams at the World Championships last year, we are confident we have selected strong squads to challenge for individual and team medals at the European Championships.

‘We have seen several athletes achieve impressive results at prestigious races in the ultra-running calendar recently, so we look forward to seeing how they perform in the Championship environment in a few months’ time.’

The selection for the mountain running teams at these Championships will take place in April after the respective trial races.
