London Walks 10km, Victoria Park   6th Feb 11 
The London 10km plus young age groups races over shorter distances were held in warm conditions for February but accompanied by a strong cold breeze. This did not hamper first man home, Brendan Boyce from Ireland, who broke 42 minutes, with the first three were all sub-45. This is not an easy course, especially in any wind, and Shaun Lightman’s sub-63 was the outcome of a long battle with Ilford man, Dave Sharpe. In the Under 15 boys 2.5 km Andrew Statter kept pushing on to succeed in keeping the fast leading group within sight. Click here to see photos from the race
