The Peds

PADDY CANNON 63 and son

The story of the Peds, as the professional long distance runners of the Victorian and Edwardian eras were known, is a fascinating one for all distance runners whether amateur or professional.    We have covered some of them already and will collect them all here with more to be added as we go along.   The source of much of the information – as well as of pretty well all the photographs – is Alex Wilson, formerly of Fife Southern Harriers.
