IAN WHYTE Glenrothes (Thornton)

Sad news this morning that Ian Whyte passed away in hospital after a short illness. Ian was a prolific runner in the 60s and 70s often running from scratch or near scratch in events from half mile to two miles and also an excellent hill runner. Ian competed for over thirty years at Highland Games and border events and also coached and introduced many youngsters into the sport. Ian was British 2 Mile Champion in the sixties and SHGA athlete of the year in 1971 he was also over the moon to be asked to be Chieftain last year of Thornton HG who he has supported for many years. It will be hard to find anyone more enthusiastic and knowledgeable about Highland Games and running in general than Ian and he will be a big miss on the circuit, our thoughts go out to his family at this difficult time.
