Scout 6th at GB Euro Trials

Women's Trial top finishers
Scout Adkin was an excellent 6th today at Whinlatter Forest, near Keswick in the GB senior trial race for the European Mountain Running Champs. The two-lap race over 8.2km/450m was won by Norwegian based Brit Rebecca Hilland (No.58) in 37.00 with the Inter-Counties champ Heidi Dent (54) 2nd in 37.57 and GB regular Sarah Tunstall (59) 3rd. Scout managed to get the better of one of the English runners Lou Roberts (62) who had finished ahead of her in the Inter-Counties, even managing to overtake her on the final descent to come home in 39.46 less than a minute behind GB internationalist Annie Conway (50) who was 4th. Good going given Scout's preference for uphill only courses which she will get to enjoy (?) in the Worlds trial race at the end of July.
Recent Gypsy Glen runner-up Gav Bryson and Rollercoaster regular Laura Stark each won their U20 Trials to gain automatic GB selection for the Euros.
