A Year In The Life

Anne Purvis_Christina Boxer83

Scottish Athletics has changed a lot over the past fifty or sixty years, particularly over the past twenty or thirty, and it is maybe a bit more difficult than is usually recognised to see the changes.   Running gear and the surfaces raced over – even the country raced over in winter – have changed and that can be seen without trying too hard but other changes have maybe been too subtle and too gradual to be noticed so this section will look at the differences in a number of different ways.   First of all, under the title of ‘A Year In The Life’ , we will have a look at one year in each decade to see what a typical season in the 50’s 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s  was like.
