Autumn 2018 Road Race Championships
England Athletics are pleased to announce the Autumn 2018 Road Race Championships in conjunction with the organisers of three popular and well-established events. The races cover the North, Midlands and South of England providing registered club runners up and down the country the opportunity to take part in an England Championship event.
Elite runners will also have the chance to contest for the England Championship titles with medals being awarded to the first three eligible individuals in both the men’s and women’s competitions. Additionally, the first two English men and women to finish in each of the three championship races who meet the selection criteria will earn themselves an England representative opportunity in 2019. Performances by athletes competing in the England Championship events below who do not make the top two automatic places will be given strong consideration with regards to additional places on the international teams.
Note that selection policies for the England International representative opportunities will be publicised in due course. Athletes wishing to submit an expression of interest in competing at either Granollers or Brunssum in 2019 should contact the Road Running Manager, Charlotte Fisher at firstname.lastname@example.org.
