Tom Marshall Heads North To Start Gold Coast Countdown

Having led the British team home to the inaugural European Mixed Relay cross country gold medal in Slovakia before Christmas, Tom Marshall will be hoping to notch another notable victory in the Great Edinburgh X-Country race in Holyrood Park on Saturday (BBC One 1.15pm).

The event in the Scottish capital will feature squads representing Team Europe and Team USA. Marshall is joined by home favourite Laura Muir, Alex Bell and Adam Clarke in the British quartet.

Hoping to be confirmed in Team Wales for the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast in April, Marshall enjoyed a major breakthrough year in 2017 and will be looking for a wining start to what could be the biggest year of his career.

There is plenty of other Welsh interest in the prestigious event in Scotland. Cari Hughes runs in the British Women’s Under 20 team and Jake Heyward and Matt Willis are included in the Men’s Under 20 squad.
