WORCESTER runner Alice Wright has been in stunning form in the USA this season to earn a trip back to England next month.

The 24-year-old has set personal bests in consecutive races for the 5,000 metres in 15 minutes 45.51 seconds, the 10,000m in 31.56.52 and the half marathon.

And Wright has just been selected for Great Britain again to run in the European 10,000m Cup on Saturday, July 6, at Parliament Hill, London.

A 12-strong team, including European silver medallist over 5,000m Eilish McColgan, will tackle the event which is the British Championships and a trial for the World Championships in Doha.

Wright returns to the track after lowering her half marathon PB to one hour 11 minutes 37 seconds at the Rock'n’Roll San Diego event where she finished third.

The former King's School Worcester pupil, who trains in Flagstaff, Arizona, under Ben Rosario for Northern Arizona Elite, smashed her previous record of 1.13.17 set in January at the Aramco Houston Half Marathon.

Wright finished sixth in the women’s 10,000m final at the European Athletics Championships in Berlin last year on her GB senior debut.

“We are delighted to have announced such a strong team for the cup in London next month,” said GB team leader Mark Pollard.

“Incorporated into the Night of 10,000m PBs once again, the cup is a standout event on the calendar and a significant marker in an important year for all of the athletes selected.

“We will be looking to achieve the highest possible placing in both the men’s and women’s team standings and are confident that the athletes selected can deliver successful results.”
