|During a busy week or so Surrey Walking Club members have been much in evidence with their own Club Championship 3km with Blackheath and Bromley the most important in Club terms. The turnout was a little disappointing with less than 10 out and several regulars missing. This did not detract from a competitive race as Roger Michell soon pulled well clear but slowed a little towards the end giving Shaun Lightman an ultimately unsuccessful chance of catching him. Behind him Ian Statter could not hold on once passed by Shaun, while his son Andrew was the most successful racer. In achieving a 30 second personal best. He also won the Edgar Lloyd Cup for the first junior and the Wilmot Tankard for winning the handicap. The race temperature was warm though not excessive and the times generally good.|
