UK Athletics has secured a Norwich Union Great Britain and Northern Ireland Junior team representative opportunity for endurance athletes on Saturday 26 August in Antwerp, Belgium and Sunday 27 August in Hildesheim, Germany.


Realising the high standard of performance required for the World Junior Championships in Beijing, this opportunity will be given to support the progress of the top junior athletes who fail to reach the qualifying standards set for the IAAF World Junior Championships. 


A small GB & NI team of two per event will be selected for the following events in Belgium;


Men’s 800m
Men’s 1500m
Men’s 5000m
Women’s 800m
Women’s 1500m


Similarly, a Race Walking team of two per event will be selected for the Men’s 10K and the Women’s 5K event in Germany.  Both teams will be selected following the Norwich Union World Junior Trials and AAA U20 / U23 Championships at Bedford on the 23 July. 


The selectors will place a strong emphasis on individual performances at the World Junior Trials, although other significant

performances achieved during this season will be considered.
