Dobriskey lining up Edinburgh appearance as first race after marriage

BUPA Great Edinburgh Cross Country

Lisa Dobriskey will target the Bupa Great Edinburgh International Cross Country as her first outing after marrying former Olympic 800 metres athlete Ricky Soos next Saturday in Loughborough.

The World Championships 1500m silver medallist who only returned from a high altitude training camp in Kenya at the beginning of November has no intention in tapering down her preparations for next year and will continue her schedule throughout the couples honeymoon.

Dobriskey believes cross country is a vital component for middle distance runners and in the past has been a regular contestant in the world's leading event which takes place in Holyrood Park on January 9th and always features a high quality international field.

"It's great to have her along again particularly after her brilliant summer season when coming back from injury she so narrowly missed winning the gold medal in Berlin," Andy Caine the meeting's elite athletes manager said.
