St Andrews athlete Megan Crawford has been selected for the Great Britain & Northern Ireland team to compete at the European Mountain Running Championships.

Megan will compete against an elite field of the continent’s best at the event which will be held in Gap, France on July 12.

Team leader Sarah Rowell said: “As is often the case with our European Championship teams, we have nice blend of new and familiar faces.

“The likes of Emma Clayton and Sarah Tunstall have been there and done it before at this level, and so know what it takes to perform on the day.

“Last year we secured three of the four team medals on offer at both the European and World Championships, so it would be great to replicate that and challenge for individual medals.”

Megan, who races for Fife AC, is coachedby local trainer Ron Morrison.
