Race organiser Archie Jenkins contacted us to share information about the top photo of the Alnwick Fair 5 race in July 1989, which appeared in the Gazette earlier this month.

This was the 13th Fair Five and local competitors featured above include Cyril Jobson (295), John Wright in black to his left, with George Tate, from Amble, to John’s right.

The race was won by Paul Cuskin, of Valli Harriers, Les Atkinson, sixth, was first Alnwick Harrier and Lynn Blair first local female.
