Edinburgh to Glasgow in Pictures

The Edinburgh to Glasgow relay was special.   Scottish athletics was diminished by its loss.   The build-up lasted months, some would say for the whole preceding twelve months but the buzz in competing clubs really started in late August for the race, usually held in mid-November.   The story can be told in pictures and photographs and that is what the linked pages are attempting to do.   There will be no end to the photographs being added – no matter when they are obtained.   Note that a much fuller account of the race is available  here
