National 100 miles Race, Colchester 22nd-23rd Sep 12 
This yearís 100 mile championship was held later in the year than usual making the night hours both colder and longer but the field of 35 was up to the normal level although only half last yearís Centenary event. Among these were four Surrey Walking Club members including second claimer Paul King who was in trouble inside ten hours and retired after 40 miles. Chris Flint also did not manage the full 100 miles but at 92 had done sufficient to be classified as a finisher in 20th place. This leaves the inimitable couple, Sandra and Richard Brown who both finished well up the field. Once again it was Sandra who came in ahead around by 40 minutes this time as she took 3rd place overall and first lady. Richard was 7th struggling after a brave effort but still took bronze as 3rd UK man.
