This race has been gaining increased recognition for the past few years and today's field includes many famous athletes, who will find the course a gruelling one requiring a high degree of both speed and stamina.
The team race is decided on three counting runners and it is hoped that Wallasey A.C. will be well placed at the finish.
Members are asked to meet at the Crosville bus terminal at Skelhorne Street Liverpool at 1.30 p.m. Owing to shortage of space it was not possible to give the second mob run result in full at last Saturday's notes and the other counting members behind Ron Barlow and Brian Woolford were John Wright 12th. Pete White 13th, Kevin Mather, 22nd and Billy Morris, 30th. Wright and White appeared to be well within themselves and perhaps the most meritorious performances after Harlow and Woolford were by Mather and Morris. Mather's 22nd place in a field of over 100 runners was an encouraging run at this early stage of the season, while Morris improved by thirteen places on his first mob run position.
This free striding young junior has been noticeably improving over the past two years and appears likely to mature as a very useful senior runner.
Tomorrow (Sunday), sees an opportunity for field events athletes to keep in trim by joining in the first of a series of competitive meetings at Wavertree Playground, when the events will be the discus, shot, javelin, and long jump.
Next Saturday at club headquarters, Wallasey A.C will be organising the annual Wallasey Schoolboys' Race, when races will be held for junior, intermediate and youth categories.
