Reg Wild Remembered - Monday 23rd January 2012.

Reg was involved with the Half Marathon from the very beginning 28 years ago, and Sponsored The Mini-Run for 11-16 ages for 15 years. His work with youngsters at H.A.C. was outstanding, and it is for these reasons that Jean would like to make this award in Memory of Reg.
