Ultra Successful Couple

Married couple Debbie and Marco Consani have been given the unique privilege of both being included in the Great Britain and Northern Ireland squad for the IAU 24-hour World and European Championships on 21-22 June. British Athletics named a 10-strong team for the event in Pilzen, Czech Republic.

Garscube Harrier, Debbie, told scottishrunningguide.com: "I am delighted that I've been selected for the squad again. This is the third time I will represent GB at the World Championships. 

"Marco was there as part of the official support crew in 2012 and 2013, so it will certainly be different to have him on the course.  Although I’m not sure who’s going to carry my bags now!  I might have to master the art of packing light.”

Sharon Law, the scottishathletics Masters Athlete of the Year in 2013, joins the couple to make it three Garscube Harriers in the squad.
