On another note the Overton 5 started as an invitation International race with separate men's and ladies races; we had entrants from all over the world with runners from the old Czechoslovakia taking two days to get to Overton.
The club still has links with, the now, Czech Republic racing over there every other year.
The Overton 5 is still, virtually, the same course since its inception, through the heart of the village, but it's now one race for men and women, open to all and is the opener for the Hampshire Road Race League.
Could possibly be good for an article?
