I extend my best wishes to all involved, for an enjoyable and successful meeting on the occasion of our 100 Miles – which is being held in tribute to Centurion 370 Ken Munro, a giant in the world of race walking officiating and “behind the scenes” work, who among many positions held in the sport, served as The Centurions’ Honorary Secretary and also as Honorary Merchandising Officer.
My personal best wishes are offered to :
. A hard-working Organising Committee.
. All Officials in whatever capacities their duties are during this event.
. All helpers, no matter what their work entails.
. All competitors, some of whom will have travelled from afar.
. For Centurions, may their efforts see them adding another completion to their tally.
. Those aspiring to join “The Centurions”, may all successfully achieve their aim.
. To all supporters who come to urge on competitors; as such course-side assistance so often provides an extra fillip when most needed.
This race is also our Race Walking Association’s official Long Distance Championship, with individual and team awards to be competed for.
Venue: Middlesbrough Sports Village in Alan Peacock Way, Middlesbrough. TS4 3AE. (Note: Alan Peacock Way is named in honour of a now octogenarian legendary Middlesbrough & England International footballer, who for many years was Brian Clough’s Middlesbrough strike partner). It has a car park. There’s an on-site cafe; if more is required, a short distance away is a Shell Filling Station (with shop) and a Sainsburys “Local”.
I hope the weather over the weekend will be conducive to ultra-distance race walking, so benefiting all present, in whatever capacity. As race walking fields continually see fewer participants, all who organise, officiate, compete and support the Middlesbrough 100 Miles are to be congratulated for keeping our tradition of frequent ultra-distance races going.
My profound thanks and best wishes to one-and-all.
