This Saturday, the Great Edinburgh Cross Country will be taking place in Hollyrood Park. The day of racing features a mixture of International cross country, Inter-Districts and fun-runs on the roads. Involved in the racing are a number of our Triathlon Scotland performance squad athletes.


From the development squad, Cameron Main will be racing in the Inter-District U20 category while Erin Wallace will be racing for team GB in the Junior Women’s race. Also racing is Winning Students Scholar George Goodwin who will be representing Scottish Students in the Inter-District Senior Men’s race.


Joining them are Confirmation squad athletes Kate Gallagher, Sophia Green and Josh Hendry. After a silver medal in Antrim last weekend, Kate Gallagher is one to keep an eye on! A number of our academy athletes will also be in action this Saturday. Make sure you look out for Rebecca Eggeling, Isla Britton, Jennifer Murray, Kate Richardson, Jack Patton, Hamish Armitt, Callum Byrne, Ben MacMillan, Carrie Banks and Claire Wallace.


Good luck to all our athletes racing in Edinburgh tomorrow!


You can watch race action live on BBC 1 on Saturday 13 January from 13:15-15:15. For further event details, click here.
