Running for the hills

A big thank you to Colin Kirkham who delivered an insightful and amusing talk on Zoom last night about how he started running while at Keighley Boys’ Grammar School – mainly as a hobby to have something to talk about in any university interviews! How he worked as a groundsman at Marley fields and trained at the same time. All of which led to competing on behalf of GB and England in Olympic and Commonwealth Games. Even while living and working in Coventry, he would return to Keighley to practice running on the hills!
