County XC Championships

Sad to say that the Warwickshire County Cross Country Championships, which were due to be held in January 2021, have been cancelled.

This will not come as a surprise given the current Covid situation but it is the right thing to do. The situation couldn’t be much worse but it is bound to get better at some point in the future. Let’s all look forward to then.

Ken Bull of Coventry Godiva Harriers

Sad to report that Ken Bull of Coventry Godiva Harriers has passed away. 

Ken was made a Life Vice President of Warwickshire County AA in recognition of his service to our sport at County level but he is probably best known for his massive contribution to Coventry Godiva Harriers.

In his younger days Ken was a very good quality middle distance runner – his favourite event being the 880 yards (2 laps).. In later years he became a Club stalwart on the admin and coaching side of things. Particularly coaching of young athletes which contributed to the CGH pre-eminence in middle distance and endurance events.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Ken’s widow  Iris and their children Sharon and Alan.

The photograph shows Ken with the Coventry Godiva Harriers team that won the County Cross Country Championships in 1963 (in the snow). Back row is:-  Tommy Wyre,  Ken Bull, Tony Snoad, Pete Burns. Front row:-  Basil Heatley, Bob Carey, Alan Dowall, Bob Turney (Capt),  Ray Allen, Brian Kilby.
