Self-Isolation and Assessment Races

The Selection Committee is aware of a number of athletes who will be unable to attend the National Championships and Assessment Races this weekend due to respecting COVID self-isolation.

These athletes are asked to inform the Selection Committee via James Smythe and to endeavour to attend the short-course assessment race at Gloucester on 25th July. This race will also be taken into account when selecting teams for the French Nationals, so even U14 and U16 athletes may enter this event and race in the junior class.

Finally, the Selection Policy allows the Selection Committee to take other results into account in their decisions, when mitigating circumstances such as this apply. We may look at other marathon or even sprint events if this allows a fairer decision to be made.
