National Cross Country Championships

IanIan Byett crowned his year as ECCA President as ‘master of ceremonies’ of the National Cross Country Championships at Parliament Hill Fields on 21st February 2015. The venue has become the traditional home of cross country in England though it was the (then separate) women’s championships that were first held there in 1950. Accordingly, Ian invited past female winners of the National to be presented with a commemorative paperweight.
Nine past winners attended:

  • Diane Leather (1953-56; first women to run a five minute mile)
  • Pamela Davies (1965-68)
  • Joyce Smith (1973; first female winner of the London Marathon)
  • Glynis Penny (1977)
  • Ruth Smeeth (1980; Ruth’s daughter is this year’s winner – the first time mother and daughter have won the National)
  • Paula Fudge (1982)
  • Alison Wyeth (1996)
  • Angela Newport (1999; BMHAC’s only winner, so far!)
  • Birhan Dagne (2004).

After his Presidential year finishes in May, it’s back to the ‘day job’ as ECCA Hon Secretary!
