The trial races will be our primary means of selection and all eligible athletes are expected to do the trial races, but if any athlete is unable to do the trial and wants to be considered for selection they must inform either Mark Croasdale (Seniors) or Bashir Hussain (Juniors) by email or letter before the 12th August 2007.
Course: Lodge-Barrow-Barrow Door-Stile End-Low Moss-Lodge.
See Map and Profiles – here – for more detail of the course.
Age Groups: Juniors - The races are open to athletes aged 16-19 (inclusive) on December 31st 2007
Juniors: As a minimum the first two junior men and the first two junior women in the trial race will be selected. The final places in each team will be decided by the International Committee.
Seniors: As a minimum the first four senior men and first two senior women in the trial race will be selected. The final places in each team will be decided by the International Committee.

The 2007 World Mountain Running Trophy will be held in Ovronnaz, Switzerland on the 15th September, the team will be away from the 13th–16th September. More information about the World Trophy can be found at www.wmrt2007.org
A development team of 3 men and 3 women is also being selected for the Smarna Gora Mountain Race in Slovenia, which is to be held on the 6th October. The race is 9km and has 710m ascent and 350m descent; it’s also the final WMRA Grand prix event.
Selection will be open to athletes who are aged 19, 20, 21 and 22 on the 1st January 2007. The team is targeted at athletes who are too old to qualify for the WT junior team and maybe, are not yet competitive enough to be selected for the senior WT team.
As a minimum the first two U23 men and first two U23 women in the trial race will be selected. The final places in each team will be decided by the International Committee. If an U23 athlete is selected for the WT senior team they will not be considered for the Smarna Gora race.
The team will be selected on the 3rd September to give athletes enough time to prepare.
Again any athlete wishing to be considered for selection, but unable to do the trial race must inform either Mark Croasdale or Bashir Hussain. The committee reserve the right not to send full teams if the standard is considered insufficient.
