Members of Wallasey Athletic Club who enjoyed a hard training run last Saturday reconnoitered the course for this aftenoon's Liverpool and District League Championship Mob Run starting at 3:15.
All the local clubs will field combined junior and senior teams, and the race will be run over a five miles 'out and home' course, taking the athletes as far afield as Upton. It will be interesting to see whether Wallasey Athletic Club can reproduce the brilliant form of two years ago when Pembroke C. and A.C. were the only Liverpool and District Club to beat them. The leading trio of that successful team John Wright, Pete White and Ron Barlow, are all now back to best form, and with much stronger support in the rear, Wallasey's prospects of winning the League Championship this year are outstanding.
All senior and junior athletes are asked to report at Club headquarters by not later than 2:45 p.m. the assistance of all boy and youth members will be welcomed by Bob McCaig, who is responsible for marking the course, and they should report by 2:30 p.m.
Next Saturday, members will again have a Club run in preparation for the second of the League fixtures at Waterloo on October 31.
Both of these mob runs form a prelude to the Waterloo Road Race on November 14, Wallasey won this event two years ago in a very strong field of over 240 runners, and are hopeful this year of recapturing the Malcolm Bullock trophy.
The Wallasey Schools Cross-Country Championship will be held from club headquarters on Saturday, November 28th. Two events will be held, a team race for schools with teams up to the age of 15 years, and a youth race for the 15-17 age group, open to all comers.
