some old photos I found when cleaning out an out building try to make room for the kayak.
I took this on the Verlea AC christmas day handicap race, I can’t remember the year, may be the late 70’s or early 80’s.
Tony Simmons set a world best for the half-marathon at Welwyn Garden City, England on 24 June 1978 of 62 minutes 47 seconds.
Harry wilson used to take a training group on Tuesday or Thursdays at Welwyn I was lucky enough to be good enough to join them. I was only a teenager and we did the shorter reps while people like Tony Simmons and Billy Dee did longer ones. We all set off at the same time and would finish the rep at the same time and Tony would never let me pass him and would always be gagging with the effort after each rep. Happy days.
