UK Athletics announce the Norwich Union GB & NI team of four to compete at the IAU 100km World Cup on 8 November.

 

Runners Jeremy Bragg (unattached), Adela Salt (Trentham RC), Emma Gooderham (Malvern Joggers) and Lucy Colquhoun (Carnethy Hill Racing Club) will travel to Tarquinia, Italy to don their GB vests and take on the Ultra distance event.

 

Bragg (unattached) won the UK 100k Championships in Edinburgh last year and finished 18th at the 2007 100k World Challenge in Holland with a personal best of 7:03.12.

 

Colquhoun (Carnethy Hill Racing Club), a seasoned long distance runner, currently sits in 34th place in the McCain Power of Ten rankings for the marathon but will make her debut at the ultra distance 100k.

 

Gooderham (Malvern Joggers) who set a new personal best of 8:03.11 at the Anglo Celtic Plate in May this year and has since improved her times over 10k, 50k and half marathon, finished 39th in the 2008 London Marathon with a personal best of 2:54.51.

 

Salt (Trentham RC) will compete in her first 100k of the year in Italy, hoping to improve on her last outing at the distance and personal best of 7:54.21. The West Midlands athlete finished 23rd in this year's London Marathon.

33 nations are competing in the IAU 100k World Cup and European Championships which should make for an entertaining and competitive event.
