The annual Anthony Marsh Christmas Tribute Trail will be held on Sunday 18th December at 14:00 from Meltham Road Playing Fields, Honley.
The event is free to enter, but donations to The Kirkwood are appreciated. The route is a circular 5km run or 2.5km walk along the fields, footpaths, woods and roads around Honley; all areas in which Tony used to train.
Tony was a well-respected member of the club and a formidable athlete. He ran sub-50 minutes for 10 miles and was elected Club Captain in 1982-83 and again in 1986-87.
He was a key member of numerous Holmfirth teams throughout his running career and in 1982 won his first significant medal; a team gold at the Yorkshire 6 Stage Road Relay Championships.
In 1983 he won a team gold medal at the Yorkshire Cross Country Association Championships in Sheffield, before being one of the six men to win team gold medals at the Northern Cross Country Championships in Burnley; the first and only time the Senior Men have won medals at the Northern Championships.
