Rebecca helps GB to team victory in European Mountain Championships

REBECCA Hilland said she was delighted with her performance at the European Mountain Running Championships in Slovenia as Great Britain celebrated team gold last weekend.

The Team Bath AC runner (pictured extreme right), who has been hampered with a hamstring problem this year, again showed she can produce on the big occasion by finishing 112th and third scorer in the sour-strong team.

“I was very pleased to finish 12th and we were delighted to win team gold,” said Hilland, who backed up silver medallist Sarah Tunstall and Victoria Wilkinson (5th) with Katie Walshaw completed the scoring in 28th.

 “The course was beautiful, a long climb opening into a plateau for the last 1km and then a very steep climb for the last 500 meters – the sort where your legs and lungs just burn!”
