Team selected for ISF World Schools' Cross-Country Championships

The English Schools' Athletic Association has selected a very strong team to compete at the forthcoming ISF World Schools' Cross Country in Paris, France from 2nd to 7th April.

This is a prestigious U18 team competition, and it is hoped that we can build on the incredibly strong performances from our teams at the ISF Track and Field Cup held in Nancy, France in 2017. ISF World Schools’ competitions have played an important part in the development of some of our best athletes.

The English Schools' AA will also be represented by two outstanding school teams, selected as a consequence of their performances in the English Schools' Cross Country Cup. They are Judd School, Kent and Charters School, Berkshire in the Boys' and Girls' competitions respectively.
