|During a quiet week in the Race Walking Clalendar a team of 3 Surrey
Walking Club members guested in their 3km event in the London Business
Houses track meeting at Willesden which is open to teams from companies
based in London as well as Civil Service departments, the Post Office etc.
Although the walk was not as well supported as years ago SWC competitors
enjoyed a competitive race on a warm mid-summer evening. The best SWC
performance came from David Hoben in a sub 20 minute personal best. In
front of him, after a fast start Hannell had to give way to Mick Harran’s
much more even pace just after half-way. A further lap saw Harran open a
gap which increased to 40 metres by the end both recrding times rather
slower than recently.
