RUNNING UP THAT HILL!


Here are some beautiful images of Dr.Ron Hill....a legend in marathon running......a former European and commonwealth champion he still runs every day even at the age of nearly 71.
The top image is of Dr Ron winning the Edinburgh 1970 commonwealth games and setting a new word record at the time all whilst wearing mesh vests and cut off shorts! His doctorate comes from a phd in textile chemistry which would have helped when he set up his clothing company making performance sports wear, he later sold the brand but he gained all his early glories wearing a vest that you can still buy in dalston market for 50p.
