Mountain Runner hits the heights

First year sports scholar Georgia Malir finished second in the Junior trial race for selection for the Great Britain team for the European Mountain running Championships.

Georgia will now be representing Team GB in Madeira, Portugal next month. It will be a tough run for the Yorkshire runner as runners will be forced to adapt to the heat as well as the challenges that the course will offer.

But first she travelled to France last weekend for the second stage of the World Cup race for mountain running, with fellow Brit Sarah Tunstall claiming the top spot.

Best of luck Georgia for the Europeans!
