Auckland reward is a step up to GB seniors
Rhona Auckland has been promoted to the Great Britain senior women's team for next month's Bupa Edinburgh international cross-country meeting at Holyrood Park.
The decision to award the 20-year-old Banchory-Stonehaven AC runner her first senior representative honour comes less than a week after the Torphins athlete finished seventh in the under-23 age group race in the European championships in Belgrade, helping the British squad win team gold.
Auckland will now line-up as part of a 12-strong senior side in the Edinburgh match on January 11 in which the Britons will compete against the US and a European select over a 6km course.
