International Selection 2015
We are now at the time of year when we make our selection for International teams to represent Northern Ireland. If you are interested in being considered for selection you must initially advise your interest by email Anne Sandford at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You must be a current member of NIMRA.
You must have been born in Northern Ireland.
You must have taken part in a NIMRA race this year. (Due to the local round of the British Championship not being held until the 15th August it has been decided by the committee for this year only that athletes who have represented Northern Ireland last year and wish to be considered this year can show proof of current form without doing a NIMRA race. Anyone else who did not represent Northern Ireland last year and wish to be considered would be strongly advised to run the Donard Commedagh race on 11th April.)
