After winning the 1908 Midland Olympic Marathon Trial (25 miles) in 2-37:13, Jack Price was rated a strong contender for the Olympic title. At the halfway mark, Price led the field by 200 yards, but his quick early pace forced him to retire soon afterwards. He was ninth for England in the 1909 International Cross-Country and then turned professional, winning the 1910 Powderhall Marathon on his pro début. Later that year he set a world professional record for 15 miles. In 1922 he formed the Halesowen Club where discovered and train Eddie Webster.
Personal Best: Mar – 2-40:08 (1910).
