Who's who in the Eden Running Track campaign?

Patrons

 

Steve Cram MBE Steve held the mile and 1500m world records and, with Seb Coe and Steve Ovett, dominated world middle distance running in the 1980s. He won the Olympic silver medal for the 1,500m in 1984. He, Seb Coe Peter Elliott and Gary Cook still hold the world record for the 4 x 800m relay. He is now well known as a TV commentator. Steve often holidays in the Eden Valley and lives in the north-east.
Jonathan Edwards MBE Jonathan holds the world record he set in 1995 for the triple jump. He has won gold medals at all the major world events - Commonwealth Games, World Championships and Olympics.
Jos
Watson
Jos has been involved with athletics for most of his 79 years. He competes both in sprint and field events. He and his family have been active for many years at events such as Ambleside and Grasmere Sports. Jos lives in Stainton.
Dave Cannon Dave dominated fell and road running in the late 1970s and early 1980s. He unfortunately missed Olympic selection because he had flu on the day of the selection race. He considers the use of a running track essential to help distance runners build up extra speed. Dave lives in Appleby.
Kenny Stuart Kenny and his wife Pauline dominated fell running in the mid-1980s. Kenny still holds the records for a number of races from that time. Their children James and Rachel are following the family tradition. Kenny lives in Threlkeld.
Stuart Robinson Stuart is an international level triathlete. He started the mini-Triathlon event at Appleby and this is now a very popular event for young people, drawing competitors from all over England. He won the Eden Sport Award - awarded by the Eden Sports Council - for outstanding Eden sportsman in 2002. Stuart lives in Appleby.
Steve Murdoch Steve recently represented England in the World Veteran Races in Auckland, New Zealand, racing the 10k and half marathon. He teaches at Ullswater Community College and a running track would be a major boost for his training. Steve lives in Askham.
