2016 XC International : England Team


The process to select the England team for the XC being held on Sat 12 November 2016 at Glasgow was undertaken at the beginning of October and since then the selectors have been in touch will all those that were initially selected and the planned reserves.  In the intervening time, the team has been refined as prospective runners have confirmed or declined the opportunity to run.  This is always a “dynamic” situation because of injuries and other unplanned conflicts in athletes diaries.

The selectors are now in a position to publicise the proposed team (although we are all too aware that more changes may be forced upon them) as availability alters.  The current list passed to me is appended below.  This will be updated with version control if I receive any further changes.
