The Open 50

The Open 50 has been held in various guises since 1931.

The Peace Memorial Trophy has been awarded since 1946.

Previous winners of the event include Roy Cromack, Dave Lloyd, Phil Griffiths, Chris Boardman, Andy Wilkinson and Charles McCulloch.

In 2017 Charles Taylor of Team Bottrill set an event record of 1:43:19.

In 1998 the ‘Chesh’ organised the ‘National 50’ which resulted in a tie between Richard Prebble and Ian Gilkes.

A full list of winners of the event can be found here.

At a committee meeting in August 2018 we reluctantly made the decision not to hold the 50 in 2019 so the 2018 50 may be the last!
