The Home Countries International XC race will be held at Santry Park, Dublin on Saturday the 13th November 2010.
The criteria for selection are based on National BMAF events, especially the Cross Country Championships as well as the 5k & 10k Road and track championship races. Competing in BMAF rather than local events gives the selectors an opportunity to compare athletes over the same courses.

An application form for consideration to be selected can be either downloaded from the BMAF website at http://www.bmaf.org.uk or from the MMAC website at http://www.midlandmasters.org.uk or from the link below.
Alternatively, send an sae 9″x 6″ (correctly stamped) to Mick Smedley, MMAC International XC Selector (England), 12a Bagshaw Street, Crewton, DERBY DE24 8TX for an application form.
All applications MUST be received by Mick Smedley (England only) no later than Friday, 24th September 2010.
