The Autumn edition of Backtrack - the magazine for BASC members - is on its way. This issue features an interview with world heptathlon champion and BASC Athlete of the Year for 2019, Katarina Johnson-Thompson, plus columns by Beth Dobbin and club president Katharine Merry. There are a couple of nostalgic articles - one on distance legend Dave Bedford, and the other looking back to the early years of the supporters club.
Unsurprisingly, the effects of the pandemic and lockdown take a high profile as we cover both the athletics that happened and the athletics that couldn't take place. The stunning film 'Rising Phoenix', highlighting para-athletes, is also featured.
If you're a member - look out for Backtrack coming through your letterbox. If you're not a member - why not join for as little as £15 a year, and you will be able to enjoy the magazine 3 or 4 times a year - written by athletics fans for athletics fans.
