Alpine Organisers

We’re trying to gather information about past Alpines, including the clubs and people who ran the events and some of the running details. While we have information about most of the recent events, the details of earlier events are hard to find. This is especially the case for those events conducted in the decades around WWII. 

Can you fill in any gaps? Do you have any information or old records that can help? There is a form at the bottom of the page – we’d love to hear from you!

Can you help?

Can you fill in any gaps? Do you think some details are incorrect? Do you have publications or photos from old Alpines that you’d like to share with the Alpine community?

We’d love to hear from you!
