The Barnsley 6 in the 1980s
HISTORIC photos and video footage celebrating the 40th anniversary of Barnsley Road Runners club will be on show this weekend.

A special event will be held in the Archives and Discovery Centre in Barnsley town hall to celebrate the group which was formed in 1974 by three keen local runners.

They succeeded in putting Barnsley on the running map and the Barnsley Marathon went on to attract runners from all over the country.

The event will run on Saturday and Sunday. Admission is free.
