Milnathort’s Laura Muir is amongst four Scots who will represent GB at the Euro Cross Champs for 2015 at Hyeres, in the south of France, later this month.

Muir, who was top U23 in the recent trial at Liverpool’s Sefton Park, is named in that age division.

Coached by Andy Young, the vet student will run the 6K distance for U23 in the south of France after taking on the 8.1K challenge of the mud at Sefton Park.

She is heading for a training camp in South Africa over Christmas and New Year following the event and then will jet back home to represent Scotland in the Great Edinburgh XC in the 4x1K relay event.

With 36 athletes named in all by British Athletics, Scotland is once again well-represented for a European level event in terms of population ratio.
