Summer Reading (19/06/2017)

There have been some books published recently that may be of interest to some Harriers old and new. The first is by Steve Chilton on a racing rivalry between two fell running greats Kenny Stuart and John Wild.

Tipton Chilton Book Cover

This is a hardback of 320 pages published by Sandstone Press. The reference numbers are ISBN-10: 1910985562 & ISBN-13: 978-1910985564

What is of interest to Tipton Harriers is that John Wild was a member of the club for a time. He was in the RAF but stationed locally and raced for us over the roads and country.

The second is on one of the UK's ultradistance greats Don Ritchie. Tipton Harriers had a great ultra distance reputation and record in the 1960's & 70's.

Tipton Ritchie Book Cover

This is a paperback of 362 pages published by DB Publishing. The reference numbers are ISBN-10: 1780915462 & ISBN-13: 978-1780915463

Both are available via the usual online books sellers and should be available to order from good local bookshops.
