VAC 5 miles, Battersea 31st May 11
A busy week began with a very pleasant Summer evening in Battersea Park where a reasonable field of 14 completed the usual 3 laps mixing with a considerable number of Cyclists, runners and others at this busy venue. Times were generally a little down perhaps because the occasion seemed too pleasant for a very strenuous effort although Surrey Walking Club’s first man home, Chris Flint, was pleased with his third place leaving his usual rivals well beaten. Probably the best relative performance came from Iain Thomson to finish just ahead of Peter Crane. Nine SWC in the field represented a good turnout for this popular series of races.
