LICC and Enfield League 3km, Lee Valley 16th Jul 11
If Surrey Walking Club had a poor representation of only two at this race this paucity was more than matched by the Clubs more local to Essex with a record 36 out. The 9 ladies and 27 men included half a dozen novices to race walking a great sight for all of the spectators at this Track and Field event. The meeting is part of the London Inter Club Competition and earlier reports have detailed similar previous events but none so wet as this. Torrential ran fell for the whole 20 or so minutes with some easing towards the end. This seemed not to affect performances too much and David Hoben worked hard for a fairly good time although both Surrey members were looking for at least half a minute less
