I realise this is very early to be talking about the SHIs – however from past experience it seems sensible to start finding out interest as soon as possible.
I am sending out this email to ask athletes to declare themselves available for selection.
The team will consist of:
- 3 x M20
- 3 x W20
- 6 x M21
- 6 x W21
Selection will be based on JK, Irish Champs, Irish 3 day (plus all known form). I suggest that 1st Relay teams are based on the WOC/ JWOC squads- i.e. the 2 top performers at WOC and the top performer at JWOC will make up the team. 2nd & 3rd teams will be based on all known form. For those that run M/W35+ I will try to work out a fair way of considering your results (maybe something like a Top 10 in MW35 = top 20 in MW21E & Top 10 in MW40= top 40 in MW21). MW16-18 may be considered for spots on the MW20 squad if we struggle with numbers.
Please click on this link and fill in the relevant details if you are interested in being considered for selection GOOGLE DOCS SHI 2014 INTEREST FORM – this is my first ever Google Docs form so hopefully it works OK. Just fill in your details and then close the tab. It might be worth going back into the form to check that your details have up loaded.
Brief details of the event:
The Senior Home Internationals are taking place alongside Race the Castles on the 18th/19th October in Deeside. The individual race will be at Balmoral on Saturday and the relay at Forvie Sands on Sunday.
Ideally I would like the team to be selected by the end of June.
If you are selected and for whatever reason cannot compete please inform the team manager as soon as possible.
