Mark books his ticket to Slovenia
Following his excellent 3rd place run at Sefton Park on Saturday Mark Shaw has been selected in the AVIVA GB & NI team for the SPAR European Cross Country Championships in Velenje, Slovenia on Sunday 11 December.
Despite being one the youngest competitors in the U20 race at Sefton, Mark had an excellent race and such is his confidence he was disappointed not to win! " I have to be pleased with that,” said Shaw. “It was always the intention to stick in as long as I could and perhaps go on and win. However, while that didn’t happen, to get onto the team at the first time of asking is pretty good.”
In a strong senior race at Sefton with 525 runners there were also good runs for Ricky Stevenson 17th, Richard Morrell 36th, Lewis Moses 40th and Nasir Hussain 144th.
