*The National Junior 10 miles was a Senior event open to those, who had not won either national individual or team medals. It had its equivalent at a regional level. Something of an anomaly it was dropped from the calendar in the 1960s.

Thanks to Ron for putting together this revealing insight into the club’s history. We should follow it, as far as we can, given what we can discover, by a roll of team achievements.

    Tony,

    I think we should add Bill Crowley, Alan Hudson and Alan Day joint third in the 100miles event in 1969. I also think, but not certain that Joe Barraclough was in the first three in 1956.

    Regards,

    Chris.

    Many thanks, Chris. I should have asked for corrections and amendments.

    Cheers,

    Tony

    Checking through – Bill and the two Alans are not included as the Bristol 100 wasn’t a national championship, which opens another post on outstanding results in Open races.
