Jim Mosher Great shot, Mike. #77 looks like a young Dave Singleton. Dave coordinated the Reebok Racing Club in the UK and the Continent in the early 80s.

Rex Lane would this be the race Ken Moore wrote about, originaly in Sports Illustrated- Concentrate on the Chrysanthemuns? If not my favorite, then among my top 5 running stories of all time.
