Church to Church 19.4 miles, Guernsey 1st Sep 13
Thirty six hours later the same group of SWC members with Martin and Angela both making their debut in this event, set off on the annual 19 miles of the Church to Church Walk. First Surrey walker home was Angela Martin who walked solidly throughout passing 5 miles in 57-49, 10 miles in 1-54-47 en route to a final time of 3-46-52 and first place in the women’s race. Angela’s time places her 16th on the women’s all time list. Having walked together through, Angela was followed across the line by Malcolm who recorded the same time for a 13th position overall and together they claimed the husband and wife prize. Having walked most of the first 5 miles with Angela and Malcolm, David Hoben finished in 15th place in a time of 4-03-29 and the trio gave Surrey 3rd place in the team competition. Unfortunately David Delaney was unable to finish due to injury but after a quick check up at the local hospital was able to join the others at the prize presentation later that evening.
Jonathan Hobbs also making his debut finished in 1st place with Guernsey’s Jason Le Noury 2nd and Jim Ball of Steyning AC 3rd. Click here for photos from the race
