RIP Dave Bagshaw (15/12/2021)

Tipton Harriers are saddend to learn of the death of Dave Bagshaw, synonymous with the history of Tipton Harriers at the Comrades Marathon

From his partner Mair,

"Dave Bagshaw died on 30th November. As you may know he won the Comrades Marathon in 1969, 1970 in 1971 (before I knew him) and he flew back from the UK in 1972 to compete again only to be beaten into second place by Mick Orton from Tipton Harriers. I wonder if Mick Orton or any other runners of his era are still active in the club and perhaps you could direct them towards the Comrades Marathon Association website or Facebook page where there are very moving tributes to Dave. The funeral will take place at Grenoside crematorium Sheffield at 3 pm Thursday 16th December. We have been in touch with  the Comrades Marathon Association and they have sent a written tribute from the chairperson of the Comrades Marathon Association as well as a video tribute from Bruce Fordyce."
