Veterans AC 5 mile League Race, Battersea Park  3rd Jul 12
After a showery day the race was held in ideal dry but cool conditions but times were generally not as good as hoped with a lack of numbers although the M60 winner, Ian Richards from Steyning, achieved a very fast time. Surrey Walking Club’s Mark Easton in second place was only 10 seconds down on his target 40 minutes while somewhat further back David Hoben was the only Surrey man with an improved time. Apart from the two competitors behind David who finished 15 seconds apart none of the rest were within about two minutes of the competitor ahead.

1. I.Richards (Steyn M60) 36 min 22 sec; 2. M.Easton (Sy WC M45) 40 min 10 sec; 3. S.Allen (Barn M55) 45 min 34 sec; 6. P.Hannell (Sy WC M65) 50 min 56 sec; 7. P.King (Belg/Sy WC M60) 52 min 19 sec; 9. D.Hoben (Sy WC M55) 58 min 44 sec; 11. K.Burnett (Sy WC M70) 1 hr 4 min 15 sec.
