Five teams take part, England, Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. 3 runners are selected for each team across various age groups based on qualifying times run throughout the year. This year three Doncaster AC athletes were selected.
In the Ladies Masters W55-59 team, Caroline Wheelhouse was part of the Gold winning team, she was third to count for England and out of the 15 athletes in the category her time was 4th fastest 23:54 – 6k.
Mick Page and Kevin Newman both ran in the Open 8k race. Kev finished 8th with a time of 28:13 and Mick finished 11th with a time of 28:47. These were both great performances, both running in about 7th and 8th place (out of 15) respectively in their age groups if they had run in the M55-59 and M60-64 races.
Any errors give me a shout, never looked into this event before.
