Congratulations to the following athletes who have been selected to represent England on the road this Spring at distances from the mile to half marathon. As the temperatures start to rise and the weather reportedly improves, Spring road races can provide excellent opportunities for all endurance runners, whether track, cross-county or road specialists.
