Blackheath & Bromley One Hour Race, Norman Park 12th Sep 12
As usual Blackheath & Bromley HAC welcomed a few, four in this case, racewalkers to join their annual one hour race at the Norman Park track. What was unusual was that there were only four runners taking part. This probably had the beneficial effect of not including a few of the slower runners who the walkers may try to hold and ruin their chance by going too fast early on. In fact most set off and maintained a set rate and were rewarded with better times for it. The longest distance achieved was 10.818km or nearly 6 and mile in the hour by Shaun Lightman who moved fast and steady for most of the race but managed a few of the laps even faster. This was around 55 minute pace for the whole 10km. While David Hoben was a little down on normal both Peter Hannell and Mick Harran were up on normal.

1. S.Lightman (Sy WC M65) 10.818 km; 2. P.Hannell (Sy WC M65) 9.835 km; 3. M.Harran (Sy WC M70) 9.575 km; 4. D.Hoben (Sy WC M55) 8.390 km.
