Irish select

A CONVINCING win for Moorfoot’s Sarah McCormack, 24, in the Irish Uphill Trial on Saturday has resulted in her selection by Ireland for the European Mountain Running Championships in Bursa, Turkey.

McCormack will join her club training partner Scout Adkin, who runs for GB in the junior women’s race.

Both plan to run the Eildons Hill Race on Saturday, but with the focus more on their preparation for the uphill-only nature of the European Championships two weeks later rather than their race position.
