Alf Palmer 5km, Horsham Track 17th Dec 11
The usual demands of Christmas shopping and sub-zero temperatures at dawn did not deter the Surrey Walking Club members who traveled to Horsham on Saturday. The track at Horsham had to be cleared of ice but by the start the temperature was not too cold with some sun and hats, gloves and extra layers were shed by many. As usual Ian Richards of Steyning soon pulled clear of the field only to slow allowing Jonathan Hobbs to close to 21 seconds. Of the SWC men David Crane was the first home and the most improved over last week’s race over the same distance but no hills gaining almost 2 minutes.

1. I.Richards (Steyn M60) 25 min 11 sec; 2. J.Hobbs (Ashf U20M) 25 min 32 sec; 3. S.Allen (Barn M55) 26 min 28 sec; 10. D.Crane (Sy WC) 32 min 16 sec; 12. P.Crane (Sy WC M65) 33 min 37 sec; 13. D.Delaney (Sy WC M65) 33 min 57 sec.
