|During this busy period the main event is the County Championships with most Surrey Walking Club members competing at Kingsmeadow. On a mainly sunny but too warm a day the strange weather brought a strong breeze into the home straight and even a few drops of rain. Apart from one lady in the women’s event, the field was all SWC with international Mark Easton bringing some quality to the race and lapping the field easily. The other medal positions were contested by Ian Statter and Peter Hannell together for all but the last 100 metres when Ian Pulled away by 4 seconds. Andrew Statter in the Under 15 Boys won that event finishing well ahead of David Hoben.|
