The new Sixty Years Running booklet is a supplement to "Fifty Years Running: A History of the Mountain Trial". The new booklet

between 2002 and 2014. There are profiles of Wendy Dodds, Mike Walford and the Haines family together with results and many photos. Don't miss out on this piece of history!
The 2015 LDMTA AGM was held on Friday 27 November at Wilf’s cafe. Wendy Dodds stepped down as Chairman but is remaining on the committe. John Broxap has left the committee but Dave Jones has joined. Tony Richardson will also be co-opted onto the committee. There was no candidate for Chairman so an interim Chairman will be appointed at the next Committee meeting in January.
