TWO Scots have been selected for the World Athletics Half Marathon Championships, which will take place in Gdynia, Poland at the end of this month.

Steph Davis and Sarah Inglis are part of a ten-strong Great Britain and Northern Ireland team that will travel to Poland for the race on the 29th of March.

The event will see Davis, who runs for Clapham Chasers, make her GB debut and her selection is just reward for the impressive run of form she has been on.

Since running her first marathon in September 2018, Davis has propelled herself into Olympic contention having run under the qualifying time when she clocked 2 hours 27 minutes 40 seconds in the Valencia Marathon, propelling herself to ninth on the British all-time list.

The 29-year-old then followed that run up with a half-marathon personal best last weekend in the Big Half in London, clocking 71 minutes 15 seconds to finish third in the British team trials for the World Championships.

Inglis, of Lothian Running Club, will add this GB vest to the couple she won on the track last summer.

The 28-year-old, who is based in Canada, moved to thirteenth on the British all-time list when she clocked 70 minutes 24 seconds at the Houston half-marathon in January.

They are part of the British team led by former European Championship medallist, Chris Thompson, and Lily Partridge.

Ahead of the championship, team leader Chris Jones said: “The full squad of 10 for the World Athletics Half Marathon Championships in Gdynia showcases some of Great Britain’s most in-form athletes over the distance, exemplified by the performances at the trials and the form we have seen already this season.

“The team we have selected shows a good range of previous British international experience and features new names to the international scene and I hope this strength will be reflected in the overall outcome.

“The championships will serve as an excellent opportunity for athletes to continue their upward trajectory on the roads and I hope that we can achieve a strong team position overall.”
