The race commemorates Nigel Barge who was killed in action in Dunkirk during World War II.
Nigel was an outstanding officer who trained as a Royal Engineer and was killed at
Dunkirk. He came top of his class at Woolwich (“The Shop”) and had helped prepare
and map defences around Dunkirk and had assisted in the repairing of small craft to ensure
the debarkation of his comrades. He was also a licensed pilot and a keen athlete. Nigel’s
father was Kenneth Barge, late of the Bengal Lancers, a member of the committee of
Maryhill Harriers. The race has run every year since 1943.
