During the late 60’s I remember competing in the Inter Company Apprentice Road Race. The event was held on a Sunday morning and consisted of teams of about six apprentices from each company ( Permali, Williams & James, Telehoist, Dowty and Smiths – there may have been more ). I believe the start was at Permali and there was a combination of running and cycling from company to company, finishing up at Smiths. I remember cycling in from Cinderford on the Sunday morning ( I was fit then !!!!!). My stint was from Dowty at Staverton to Telehoist in Cheltenham going via Stoke Orchard. I can’t remember where we finished but perhaps someone can recall the event and add more information.
Does anyone remember these races, or have any photographs of them? If you do please either add a comment below, or create your own page on this site.
