The foot and mouth crisis has led to the cancellation of the British Schools' Cross Country international in Wales on March 31. The move comes after the cancellation of the Secondary Schools Cross-Country Championships which were due to have been held in Irvine on March 10.

More events could also be postponed, including the Primary Schools Cross Country Championships, due to be held in Kirkcaldy on April 28. "We are waitng on more news before making a decision about other events," said Scottish Schools' Athletic Association secretary Linda Trotter.

The postponement of the Secondary Schools Championships left many young athletes disappointed - more than 1,800 runners had entered. Morag MacLarty (Perth High) had been looking to repeat her success at last month's Under-15 race at the national championships, also held in Irvine.
