I am a student at the University of Western Ontario doing research on the history of the Springbank International Road Races that took (still do take) place in London, Ontario, Canada. In it's heyday, this event saw ALL the top road runners compete: Frank Shorter, Bill Rodgers (I've heard he claimed his best race ever was at this event), Jerome Drayton, Ron Hill, etc.
I'm looking for articles written on the event, pictures, and also contacts with people who were involved in these events. I'll be able to get lots of old race programs, photos, and locally written newspaper articles from the events, but I was hoping that some of you who post on this board can offer some recollections from having been at this event.
I'd also be interested (long-shot) in trying to get in touch with some of the athletes, like Shorter, Rodgers, etc, to get a personal account of the events.
