The European Athletics website homepage will have a live stream of the Great Edinburgh XCountry on Saturday from 14:00 to 15:30 CET.

The live stream will have English-language commentary from Stuart Storey. The stream will be geoblocked in the United Kingdom.

The event is the annual international match between Team Europe, Great Britain and the USA.

Holyrood Park will stage four races - the senior men's 8km, senior women's 6km, junior men's 6km and junior women's 4km.

Team Europe includes the Samokov 2014 under-23 gold medallist Ilgizar Safiulin of Russia and Italy's Yemaneberhan Crippa, the junior women's winner.

The women’s race will be of the highest quality and once more will pit Samokov 2014 winner Gemma Steel with France’s Sophie Duarte who beat her to gold at the 2013 SPAR European Cross Country Championships in Belgrade. Steel is running for Team GB.

Team Europe's women side is full of strength including Ireland’s double European cross country champion Fionnuala Britton and Meraf Bahta, the Swedish star who won the 5000m at the European Athletics Championships in Zurich in August.
