The Men's and Women's European Middle Champs are on Tuesday 8th and Wednesday 9th May.
Good luck to the ten GB athletes entered, four women and six men, all with a good chance of getting through to the finals on Wednesday.
Many of the sprinters change their shoes, and five of the other seven, those concentrating on the forest and hillsides, break out their competition kit. (It is the weekend before Hector and Hollie do that.)
Total numbers are almost the same as for the sprint with 101 women and 125 men entered. Switzerland and Sweden have 13 runners each. Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Finland, Germany, Italy, Norway and Russia have 12 each.
The qualification races are from 9:00 UK-time on Tuesday. There are 3 heats in each, and the best 17 Europeans in each go to final (plus any non-Europeans doing as well.)
The finals are from 9:00 UK-time on Wednesday.
