M/W16’s seeking selection would be expected to run M/W16A courses at the selection races and M/W14’s seeking selection would be expected to run M/W14A courses at the selection races.

The Selectors expect that any athlete wishing to represent England will successfully complete at least three of the above races.

In the event that a race, or races, are cancelled, or a course is voided the selectors will still consider competitors without the requisite number of results provided that they had entered the cancelled race(s) and that the total of achieved results plus entries for cancelled races meets or exceeds the required number of races.

Illness or Injury;
All cases of illness or injury which may affect an athlete’s ability to compete fully or at all in one of the above selection races should be notified in writing to the Selectors prior to the running of that race, clearly explaining why.
