There were not only a number of trophies and plaques to be won in the relay, but there was also a number of medal races which could be entered by the individual including the prestigious imperial mile race for several age groups and a 3000m team race for senior men.
Times for most of the events were irrelevant because the weather was so bad. It was bitterly cold with wind and rain, but nevertheless, Wallasey had a field day, winning most of the relays.
Five of the relays were run over a distance of 1600 metres. They were the colts' composite relay, the boys' composite relay, the men's and women's medley relay and the mixed medley. Wallasey won all of these.
The closest relay race was in the boy composite relay when Wallasey remained some metres behind up until the last leg when Ray Eaton pulled back the deficit to storm through the tape clear of Frodsham Athletic Club.
The best individual run of the day must go to Mike King in the colts' 400m which he won. He timed his run right and pushed through as the 'staggered' start of the home straight.
The 3000m team race was interesting to watch. Kevin McGee 'sat' behind the leader for four laps and then made a move to break away. He strided the last laps to become the easy winner.
Wallasey unfortunately lost the team race to Sefton Harriers by two points.
