The trials for the World Mountain Running Championships take place in Whinlatter in the Lake District this Sunday and will see a clamouring for places on the UK team heading Poland early next month….

Event incorporates the up and down trial races for selection of UK teams to compete in the World Mountain Running Championships and UKA Mountain Running Championship (senior individual).

2013 sees an up and down year at the World champs, so you can expect to see some of the cream of UK mountain (and fell) running lining up in Whinlatter. Entry is on the day, but you expect the likes of Emma Clayton (senior women) and Nathan Jones (junior men) to be right up there in the hunt for places and that coveted GB vest.
