Team opportunity: Granollers Half Marathon

England Athletics value the importance of competitive road running opportunities for those athletes looking to gain international experience in preparation for major off track competitions. England Athletics therefore intend to select athletes for competitive opportunities who the Selection Panel believes have the potential to challenge for selection for future England and Great Britain major championships.

The Granollers Half Marathon is a well-established and popular race with both elite and recreational runners. The race attracts elite runners from across Spain as well as East Africa and provides a good competitive level of competition. Granollers is a city near to Barcelona in Catalonia, Spain. The current course records are held by Samuel Wanjiru (Kenya) in 59:26 and Gete Wami (Ethiopia) in 70:24.  Go to for more event details.

England Athletics are looking to send a team of up to four men and four women to this year’s event. To be considered for selection athletes will need at least one minimum standard at either 10 miles, Half Marathon or Marathon. The England Athletics development standards are (men / women): 10 miles 50:15 / 56:50, Half Marathon 1:07:00 / 1:16:00, Marathon 2:22:00 / 2:39:00. Qualification performances must be achieved between 00:00 (GMT) 1 January 2018 and 24:00 (GMT) 18 November 2018.
