PAM DAVIES - We regret to report the passing of former Surrey president Pam Davies, winner of the English women’s cross country title a record-equalling four successive times. She died in a North London hospital after a short illness, aged 82.
She took up athletics in 1953 when she was a student at Leicester University after she discovered there were races further than 100 yards. She began at 880 yards and was the Women’s AAA national one mile champion in 1963. After finishing runner-up in the English women’s cross country championship in 1964, she won the event in 1965, 1966, 1967 and 1968, only the second runner to win the title four consecutive occasions. Diane Leather (1953 to 1956) was the first runner to achieve the feat. She also represented England three times in the international championship.
Although she achieved further success on the track she admitted cross country running was her favourite event. She was a regular competitor in the Surrey Championships between 1961 and 1973 winning the one mile title four times in 1962, 1963, 1964 and 1968 and the county senior women's cross country title in 1960, 1962, 1963, 1964, 1965,1966 and 1967.
She and her late husband John were the 20th century Bow Street runners as they frequently trained from their home in Bow Street where they had two sons. She was also a full-time teacher as head of science at a South London school. She lived the last few years of her life at the Highbury development in North London to be near one of her sons. After retiring from competitive athletics in the 1980’s she continued to support the sport as a qualified official. She was elected Surrey president in 2001 and from 2002 to 2013 she was assistant secretary taking the minutes of executive committee meetings. Profile.

Full information about CRY and their services can be found on their website at www.c-r-y.org.uk. Young people between the age of 14 and 35 who would like to have cardiac testing can go to www.testmyheart.org.

In particular, sets of County Championship results prior to 1980 are sought.
SURREY SCHOOLS ATHLETICS HISTORICAL INFORMATION - CAN YOU HELP? - Surrey Schools AA have had a request from Michael Stenning, as part of his family history research. He wants to know if his aunt, Iris Marshall, won the girls hurdles at Surrey Schools T&F at Motspur Park between 1934-39.
