Jessica Coulson (pictured) and Julia Bleasdale will be among Great Britain and Northern Ireland’s team for the Bupa Great Edinburgh International Cross Country on January 5.

Twenty-four seniors and twelve juniors will take on the United States and European Select team at the Holyrood Park event, which is also part of the IAAF World Cross Permit series.

Coulson, who won the European under-23 title in Budapest recently, will be part of an intriguing battle against Ireland’s Fionnuala Britton, Portugal’s Ana Dulce Felix and Netherlands’ Adrienne Herzog, the top three in the senior race in Budapest.

The pair will also clash at the Brussels CrossCup on December 23.
