Stamford Athletic Running Club era 1931 - 1950

Stamford Athletic Club, coached by Bill Campbell, showed marked superiority over St. Catharines in their October 21, 1947 Thanksgiving Day Man-A-Mile Race.
Described as one of the finest races ever contested in the holiday event, the Stamford Athletic club won after overcoming a couple of early Garden City leads. Starting in St. Catharines, the 14 ½ mile race was covered in one hour, six minutes and thirty seconds, just a few seconds off the record for the distance.
Following the race, which finished in front of the Niagara Falls City Hall on Queen Street, Mayor W.L. Houck and local industrialist Harry Carmichael presented the coveted Carmichael Cup to Al D’Amico, Captain of the Stamford Athletic Club.
