Penny Thackray GB Team Selection

Report by: Bryan Murray

News Report 23rd February 2001

Reward for her tremendous victory in the recent Puma Dewsbury l0k is an invite for Penny Thackray to compete for Great Britain and Northern Ireland in Japan.

Thackray will run one of the l0k legs in the international Eikidn Relays in Yokohama.

Several top class countries will be there including Spain, Romania, United States and the host nation.

Thackray, who has been troubled by a foot injury of late, found the hard course at a recent 4k event not to her liking. She finished a modest 14th in 15 mins 23 secs.
