Research Material Wanted (23/12/2014)

A member of Tipton Harriers is wondering if anyone within Club (past or present) can help him in his quest to assemble a complete collection of an athletics magazine from the late 1970's and early 1980's. His object is to gather a collection for reference and preservation so that future generations can access the information when conducting research into athletics from that era which went hand in hand with the running boom.

The UK based magazine in question began life as "Jogging", changed to "Running" and then finally became Runners World. The early editions often contained good articles on athletes, clubs and running in general by leading journalists and commentators. It may be that someone within the club or the wider community may have some lurking in a loft!

The editions missing are:

Jogging 1979 March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October

Jogging 1980 June

Running 1986 January, February, April, May,
