DescriptionAthletics programmes, with accompanying detailed results, invitations and competitors' information primarily detailing the London to Brighton ultra-distance road race. The programmes cover 1936 to 1991 although there is heavy coverage of the event during the 1950s and early 1960s. Most programmes provide information about meeting officials; information about entrants; some results; details of prizes; advertisements for other meetings; and details of advertisers and sponsors.

There are also two copies of an athletics programme relating to an unrelated ultra distance race organised by the RRC in 1952.
