We had the below letter in from a reader and it prompted discussion in the office and we are keen to hear about other long-standing races. Do you know of any?
Your excellent feature on Chris Brasher and the London Marathon prompted me to think of races that pre-date London. My own club’s 10-miler – the Maidenhead AC Easter 10 – was first run in 1953, with 98 (all male) finishers. Sixty years later, our 1,095 finishers included 375 women. How many other races share such a long history? I’d be fascinated to hear about them.
