National 10miles, Coventry   4th Mar 12
A full team at the National 10 miles Championship was in itself an achievement and 4th team is as good as SWC could expect and not too far from bronze medals. Shaun Lightman’s sub 100 minute performance was clearly the best but all members showed a few percent improvement on recent results as befits a major championship. 13 repetitions of the ¾ mile laps was none too easy in the damp windy conditions although the worst of the weather thankfully started to moderate as the race begun. After a fairly steady start, Shaun overtook Hannell at about half-way and pulled gradually away for a few laps before changing gear and pulling back several of the field to build a gap of half a lap by the finish. The other three members drew slowly apart during the first half but slightly closed by the end. Click here to see photos from the race
