Tony Christmas


I was very sorry to learn that Tony Christmas, a member and great supporter of our Club for 40 years, has passed away.

Tony Christmas – Stroud Half 2010

Tony officially retired from racing in 2010 after completing his “final” Stroud Half Marathon at the age of 80 but has been a familiar figure at many of our events and races over the years, supporting his son, Lee.

Tony always had a smile and a kind word whenever he saw Club members out and about and was a well-loved figure on the streets of Stroud.

Despite having had a stroke and being diagnosed with prostate cancer, Tony came out of running retirement in 2015 to complete Stroud Half once more in 3 hours 6 mins and received fantastic support all round the course.

Tony will be sadly missed and our sincere condolences go to Lee and all the family.
