    Default 1940`s Athletic Stadiums

    We held races in Reading Street ,Kirkdale. Our stadium lap was start at halfway in the street then run up to Stanley Road then along to the Knowsley hotel (the roundhouse)then back along commercial road then up Reading Street to the finish. the average time was about 7 minutes. A marathon was 4 laps of the circuit.

    Try this now Joe and

    1) The hoodies outside the offie would trip you up

    2) The coppers would leg it after you thinking the post office had been done again.

    3) It would take 17 minutes.
