6th December 1845: "Foot Race - on Tuesday a Foot Race for £20 was run on
the road from Shipley to Bingley, between Robinson of Guiseley and Robertshaw
of Thornton, near Bradford, when Robinson defeated his competitor by four
yards, the distance being run 120 yards. The Bradford man was a decided
favourite at starting and a good deal of money changed hands. "
