TWO members of a West Fife athletics club will put on Scotland vests next month after being selected to compete at an international competition.

Julie Menzies and Ed Norton, who both run for Dunfermline's PH Racing Club, will run for their country at the British and Irish Cross-Country International in Glasgow.

The event, which will be held at Tollcross Park on November 11, brings together competitors from Scotland, England, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

Each nation has the opportunity to host the competition on a rotational basis and, having been held in Dublin last year, it returns to Scotland for the first time since 2016.

It is a first Scotland vest for Menzies, secured after a trial race at the Glasgow venue last month, which saw her place first in the F50 category - despite hot weather conditions - in a time of 25 minutes exactly.

She has enjoyed a successful 2023 so far, which has included bagging an age group silver medal at the Inverness Half Marathon, the Scottish 10 Mile Championships and the British Masters Championships, as well as at the Sri Chinmoy Scottish 5k Championships.

It is a third call-up for Norton, meanwhile, who earned his place in the M70 quartet based on recent performances, having been unable to attend the trial race.

He collected V70 gold at the Scottish 10 Mile Championships; bronze at the British Masters Championships, in which he also won a team medal of the same colour; gold at the Scottish 10k Championships; and gold at the Sri Chinmoy Scottish 5k Championships.

Norton also added two Scottish track titles, at 800 metres and 1500m, to his ever-growing collection over the summer.
