Veterans AC Summer 5km League, Battersea Park 16th Aug 11
Surrey Walking Club was well represented at the last of the season’s VAC league 5 miles races in Battersea Park, comprising almost half of a reasonably sized field. Of the six SWC men three did particularly well. It was good to have the winner with the Club’s fastest walker, Mark Easton, holding off second finisher, Steyning’s Ian Richards, by 15 seconds and comfortably inside 40 minutes. Well up in sixth was M70 Mick Harran leaving those he would normally be near him and disappearing from sight. Chris Flint, who was 3 places behind Mick, similarly left King and Hannell far behind to get close to his 50 minute target
