The British Long Championships are on Saturday 19th at the Balmoral Estate in North Scotland. If the name is familiar it is probably because the castle is the Scottish holiday home to the Royal Family. Since a Royal Prince is marrying in Windsor near London that day however the estate will likely be quiet. And the weather forecast is good.
This post has some pictures of leading runners taken at recent European Champs ( linked to profiles.)
(update) Jon Cross has written a preview of the championship races, now published as an Article.
It is the final selection race before the GB team for this year's World Championships in Latvia is chosen, and a majority of the squad athletes are on the entry list: four of the women and ten of the men. Many of them were in Switzerland last week for the European Championships (where the photos below were taken - please click on a photo for the On The Red Line athlete profile).
You will recall that in Latvia for the forest races GB has three slots for women and two for men.
In M21 55 of the 65 entries are on the M21E course.
