Metro Aberdeen’s Jason Kelly has been selected to represent Britain in this summer’s 100K World Championships.

He is one of two Scots in the eight-strong team along with Dunfermline’s Jo Murphy for the championships which take place in Berlin on August 27.

It will be a first GB vest for both Scots, although Murphy has competed previously in a virtual event.

Kelly finished second behind England’s Matt Dickinson in the Anglo Celtic Plate Home Countries International in Perth, while Murphy set a course record on her way to winning the Scottish and British titles.

Adrian Stott, organiser of the Anglo Celtic Plate, said: “It is totally wonderful news and so well-deserved by these athletes after putting in a lot of hard work over a number of years.

“Across the Scottish ultra community there will be real pride at these selections and in fact there’s a spread across the Home Countries in this British team.

“There also seems to be real excitement around the 100k distance again and that bodes well for the World Champs.”
