Broadgreen will be the Mecca of Liverpool and District runners, officials and supporters on Saturday next.
The occasion is the annual cross-country championship races of Liverpool and District. All the local clubs will be represented.
The splendid running of A. E. Frost in the recent West Lancs. Senior Race, when he finished second, has made him a challenger to the holder Norman Jones. Both runners are in Pembroke's team, and these with J. Johnstone, their club champion, should make the race for the individual title a thrilling one.
The junior race, for runners over 18 and under 21 years of age, is an open one. W. H. Marsh, of Pembroke, is fancied to win. N. Marples (Wallasey A.C.), T. G. Downs (Sefton) and E. Jones (Liverpool University) will run him close. The teams these four runner represent will also fight it out for the team honours.
