In the nineteenth century and for much of the twentieth, this section would have been more correctly named “field & track” as: running high leap, putting the stone, hop skip and jump, hurdles and running long jump were all included in the early contests. Pole vaulting was also introduced along the way – a Mr Jamiesen broke the British professional record in the Ambleside Pole Leaping Event of 1962.
Today only the track running events are contested but a handicapping system still prevails in keeping with the professional tradition. The current handicapper has been involved with Ambleside Sports for nearly a zillion years – Ernie Blair first competed here in 1960 and has been the handicapper since 1993.
