Double Olympic champion, Hellen Obiri will be the star to watch at the International Cross Country championships that will be held on Saturday at the Billy Neill Country Park, Dundonald.
The 2019 World Cross Country champion is also the Double Olympic 5,000m silver medalist.
The 32-year-old performance in Tokyo matched her silver medal at the Rio Games in 2016 and her last run in the UK saw her winning the Great North Run in September last year.
The race organiser John Allen said, “While the International Cross Country here has always attracted classy athletes from abroad it is particularly gratifying that we have got the services of such a star athlete as Hellen Obiri especially given the ongoing difficulties created by Covid concerning international travel.”
“With her win in the last World Cross, Obiri has shown that she has the versatility to beat the best in the world over either track or cross country.”
