Springbank International Road Races

Postby tyche » Mon Jul 09, 2012 12:01 pm

Some of you may know Springbank International races in London, Canada as some of the most competitive in the world in the late 60s, and 70's, tailing off into the early 80s. Shorter, Drayton, Hill, Salazar, Yifter, Larrieu. Some amazing fields.
The London Pacers Running Club has posted the programs from those races on their website:
http://www.londonpacers.on.ca under Results.

The programs include results and photos from the previous year.

We are missing 1984. Does anyone have that one? Was there a program the first year, 1968? Does anyone have more complete results for any of the races (the programs usually truncated the lists).

Thanks.

Hi Again,

Still working on posting old Springbank Road Race results. We just posted a list of the 1981 12 mile race results but in all the copies of the 1982 program we have found (programs had the previous year's results) some pages are nearly unreadable. So we have made a guess on some of these. If anyone was there or if anyone was familiar with the distance runners of 1981, we would really appreciate of you could scan the results and see if we have made any obvious errors. Also still trying to find the 1984 program.
