A 17-strong team will represent the Aviva Great Britain and Northern Ireland Team at next month’s World Mountain Running Championships in Campodolocino, Italy.

The senior women’s team will be spearheaded by Sarah Tunstall (Kendal AC), who won bronze at the 2008 European Mountain Running Championships and silver in the under 23 race at the 2008 European Cross Country Championships.

This will be the first time a team has competed under the GB & NI banner at the championships, after home nations sent separate teams to the event in previous years.

This brings the World Mountain Running Championships - which takes place on 6 September - into line with IAAF championships.
