Scottish vest for Jessica

scottishathletics are pleased to confirm a team of six young hill runners for the forthcoming International Mountain Cup.
The event, which is for U18 athletes, takes place in Annecy in France at the end of this month.
Last Sunday, they were shrouded in mist for the Lomonds Juniors Hill Race (the trial race). Runners couldn’t see the top of the hill or much else due to the low mist.Nonetheless our young athletes relished the conditions and put in some excellent performances.
Athletes born in 2006 and 2007 were racing for the two automatic places available in both the girls and boys race.Thomas Hilton (Moorfoot Runners) and Jessica Taylor (Edinburgh AC) were clear winners in both categories. The trial race was two laps, 5.8km with 200m of climb and descent.Scotland team for International Mountain Cup:Jessica Taylor (Edinburgh AC); Katie Meek (Inverness Harriers); Isla Paterson (Gala Harriers)Thomas Hilton (Moorfoot Runners); Ronnie Brown (Team East Lothian); Rowan Taylor (Lasswade AC)
