02/04/2014 - I've just uploaded the Ultra running page to chronicle the club's achievements in the ultra distance world - we had some world class ultra-distance runners including world record breakers Dave Dowdle and Martin Daykin and we were one of the top clubs in Europe in the late '70s / early '80s.
