Surrey Walking Club Open 10km incorporating Southern Area Championship 10th Jan 09
Almost 40 Walkers toed the line for Surrey Walking Club’s major open event, their 10km, which incorporated the Southern Area Championships for the distance despite near freezing temperatures. The home club once again put on a well organised event although the racing members were thinner on the ground than usual. Of these once again it was Olympian, Shaun Lightman who finished with a time near fifty seven and a half minutes and near to his best for a while and with the help of the Crane family attained 4th team place above Ilford. In doing so Shaun was in front of several who had regularly been ahead over recent months. Steyning meanwhile were strong both in numbers and performance with the winner, who broke 45 minutes, and the 1st and 3rd teams. Click here to see photos from the race
