Results: AAA Marathon 1975 and 1976

Looking back at race results and seeing how the Scots performed is always a fascinating occupation.   Alastair Macfarlane has passed on the results of the AAA’s marathon championships of 1975 and also of 1976 when it was an Olympic trial.   Look at the number of Scots competing, look at the quality of these runners: it’s what we look for in all events – the number and the quality of these numbers.   1975 first.

And for 1976

… runners like Sandy Keith, Don Macgregor, Doug Gunstone, Alastair Macfarlane, Jim Dingwall, Colin Youngson, Willie Day, Donald Ritchie, Alex Wight and Martin Craven all on the first page on a very hot and sticky day.   A Scottish marathon championship, held domestically would be very happy even now to have so many talented runners battling it out.
