International x country in Park today

Holyrood Park is today again the venue for the BUPA Great International X Country event at 1pm today.  (It will be televised on BBC One).   The men's 8.9k race will see world cross-country champion Zerseney Tadese in action.  The various races include a range of top international stars.  There is a series of fun events as well including the Under 13  and under 15 boys and girls inter-district cross country championships and the 5k great winter run.  
Steve Cram's verdict: "This is the very best the world has to offer. This is one of the top winter events".
Although the course in Holyrood Park in not in Southside & Newington ward, parts of the Park are.
