Loss of one of our greatest legends
Midland Counties are sad to hear of the death of Diane Leather (7 January 1933 – 6 September 2018) who became the first woman to run a mile in less than 5 minutes. Representing Birchfield Harriers, Leather broke the 5-minute barrier with a time of 4 minutes and 59.6 seconds, during the Midlands Women’s AAA Championships at Birmingham’s Alexander Sports Ground on 29 May 1954, 23 days after Roger Bannister became the first man to run a sub 4-minute mile in Oxford. Earlier at that meeting she lowered the British record for 880yds to 2 mins 14.1secs.
