Mary Western and Ed Norton both secured international selection for the forthcoming British & Irish Masters Cross Country in Swansea by placing first in their respective categories at Saturday’s trial race at Glasgow’s Tollcross Park.

With both PH athletes taking part in the undulating 6k race for ladies and men over 65, Western finished 5th overall in a time of 23.04 to secure another Scotland vest after representing Scotland previously in 2016.  November’s fixture will be a first international for Norton who was very pleased at his selection following a run of 24.39.

Well done to both on securing PH representation at this event for the third year in succession and thanks to Kenny Phillips for the race photos.
