We sadly have to report the passing of one of our long-standing members, Adrian Weatherhead aged 79. Adrian was a member of our Society for 25 years and also a former member of the ASE Council on several occasions, most recently in 2001/2.
Adrian is best known for his running prowess having been a Scotland, GB and NI international, and a sub-4 minute miler. On track he was a 1500m runner and won the Scottish indoor title in 1973 and 1976 as well as national outdoor champion in 1979.
Here’s a very nice tribute to Adrian from Peter Hoffmann.
We offer our sincere condolences to his family and friends.
