20th June Deadline
Commonwealth Ultra Championship
North Wales , 23 – 25 Sept
24 hour race and 55 km trail race
Teams of up to 5 Senior Men and 5 Senior Women will be selected to represent Northern Ireland. These will be based on current form, up to 20 June.
We wish to focus on competitive performances and ensure that athletes are adequately prepared for this level of Competition.
The selectors will fill team places based on all known performances at the marathon distance and beyond, with particular regard for results at these distances between 2010 and 20 June 2011.
Competitive and consistent results will merit particular consideration. The selection committee has the discretion to consider other performances outside the selection criteria.
Athletes interested in being considered for individual or team places should forward their results from 2010 onwards to Athletics NI. Team selections will be made by the end of June. Interested athletes may contact Ian Taylor or Joe Quinn for further information.

All eligible athletes are welcome to inform the mountain running secretary of their performances in other events, prior to the selection deadlines, if they believe that they might warrant selection. Seniors based outside NI should normally compete in at least one mountain event in NI during the season to be considered for selection.
Please note: While some assistance for travel and accommodation may be available, it is likely that selected athletes will be expected to make a financial contribution towards costs.
