CROYDON Harrier Elliot Safo has been selected to represent England at the Bratislava International indoor meeting this Sunday.

The 18-year-old, who was a London 2012 torch bearer, will be a part of the 18-strong England team.

On a competition weekend heavily disrupted by snowfall, Brendan Murphy notched his fourth victory at the Riddlesdown ParkRun.

The 27-year-old won in 17 minutes and 53 seconds, over a minute clear of his nearest challenger. He will now target the Northern Ireland junior intermediate cross-country championships tomorrow.

In other ParkRun action, 14-year-old Rob Spalding was runner-up at Roundshaw Downs in 19 minutes and 22 seconds.

Mark Plackett warmed up for the British University and College championships in a fortnight's time with an eighth place finish at the Cambridge University trial race. He will line up in the B race in Leeds, along with club colleague Ben Savill, who will represent Sussex University in the A race.

Over forty Harriers were set to compete at the Surrey Schools Cross-Country Championships and the South of England Indoor Championships last weekend, but both competitions were postponed due to the heavy snowfall.

And this weekend's South of England Cross-Country Championships at Parliament Hill have also been cancelled due to the weather.
