Edinburgh to Glasgow: Stage Six

Think of any of Scotland’s top distance men at any time between 1930 and 2000 and you can bet that they ran on this stage of the Edinburgh to Glasgow.   Emmet Farrell, Joe McGhee, Ian Binnie, Graham Everett, Alastair Wood all did their best for their club.   Donald Macgregor, Jim Dingwall, Lachie Stewart all managed to find their way over the seven miles from the Forestfield Inn to the War Memorial at Airdrie.    What follows is, first, some photographs from the original programmes, then a selection of photographs from 1967.   Then some from 1985   (photographs were taken by Graham MacIndoe), then Graham Haddow’s and then  some more.
