We now have a series of pages covering the Edinburgh to Glasgow eight stage relay in pictures.   Although there are a fair number of photographs up on site, these are only a start to the subject – all the pages will be set up and the number of pictures on each page added to and increased as often as we can.   The pages can be accessed from the link at the bottom of the page, or for now, from this quick link

 

 

We now have some of Steve Taylor’s programmes which deal with a high spot of Scottish athletics history – international fixtures at Ibrox, international matches against other small nations, world cross-country matches and so on.   Where have we gone wrong that we can’t do these things any more???

 

A start has been made on a series of pages covering the Edinburgh to Glasgow eight stage relay in pictures.   Several pages have been started and they can be accessed via the links on this page   These are only a start to the subject – all the pages will be set up and the number of pictures on each page added to and increased on a daily basis.   The new addition is a short page on the medals that were awarded to the winning teams and it can be seen for now  here

Photographs have now been  added to Hugh Barrow’s Milers page and there are some more on Hugh’s Gems page of  interesting, sometimes amusing, cuttings.   

With all the newspaper, tv and internet features about the imminent demise of Meadowbank Stadium, we have asked several of the country’s best athletes to comment on what the place meant to them.   First contribution, by Colin Youngson,  here   And there’s more about Meadowbank with some noted athletes thoughts.   Find it  here

 

More excellent programmes from Graham MacIndoe in New York.   His father is always on the ‘qui vivre’ for athletics memorabilia and has found some old programmes, magazines and Lovelock’s book.   The first few samples are to be found  here  including the signed programnme from the year VPAAC won the English national.

The short account of the 1974 Commonwealth Games in Christchurch is now also available.   Frank Dick’s comment? “We underestimated the opposition”     The tale is  told  here

There is  coverage of the 1950, 1954, 1958, 1962 and 1966 Games also on site – quick link at the foot of the page  here
