Yesterday afternoon Norman Wilson from England Athletics phoned to confirm that I've been selected to represent England again.
Those of you who read this blog regularly will know that I've been expecting it for a few weeks now and planning/training accordingly.
The race is an international competition between Scotland, England, France, Ireland, Italy and Wales and will take place in Perth, Scotland on 4/5 September.
I don't want to put the names of the English runners on here yet (just in case they haven't been officially informed) but I do know that:
John Pares (Wales) cannot run due to work commitments,
William Sichel (Scotland) is running,
Jim Rogers (England) is not running. In Brive earlier this year he spoke of his desire to compete in the Spartathlon, which is also in September.
