1932 Manchester to Blackpool 50 Mile Walk

This medal was presented to Thomas Brooks of Birmingham Walking Club upon coming 4th in the 1932 edition of the Manchester to Blackpool 50 Mile Walk. This event was one of the classic events on the English calendar and was contested in late June every year from 1909 until the mid 1990’s. It offered three medals – one for those select few who broke 8 hours, one for those serious walkers who broke 9 hours 30 minutes and one for all other finishers. This medal was kindly donated to the club by Fred Brooks.
