2019 Racing and Training Opportunites
The key event for 2019 is the British & Irish U20 and U17 Mountain Running Championships. At this event last year Grace Carson was crowned current U20 British and Irish Mountain Running Champion. On the same day Sorcha Mullan gained an Individual Bronze at U17 and the U20 male team managed a team Bronze.
To help the squads prepare, it is hoped to attend three training camps throughout the season.
These trials will select the athletes that will compete at this Championship and prepare at the training Camps.
