ON your marks, get set, go.

This has surely just been cried as the starting pistol is fired to get the Heanor Marathon under way. We have few details on this picture, which is again from our own archive.

We know it was taken in September, 1983 and that Cllr Gordon Flude, the then chairman of Amber Valley Borough Council, is the man fire the starting pistol to get the field of runners under way.

But we would love to know more. If you were there, or took part, then get in touch with us at news@rhnews.co.uk or call us on 01773 514162.
