t14846A photograph of the ‘Parkwood Tipplers’ training for the first Great North run in 1981. The ‘Tipplers’ all lived in the Hartburn and Fairfield area of Stockton. They attended a keep-fit class at the Sixth Form College, Stockton on Monday evenings followed by a ‘put the world to right discussion’ over a pint in the Parkwood on Darlington Road, Stockton.
