|68 took part in the Moulton 5 miles and the younger age events. The weather conditions were similar to Ewell’s with a cool breeze on the return journey on this hilly out and back course near Newmarket where the majority of competitors were inspired to exceed recent performances. This certainly included SWC’s David Crane who was with the chasing group eventually getting the better of most of them and finishing a creditable 4th in a personal best time of 42m 36s. Further down the field Shaun Lightman was with a group which included Ken Bobbett and John Constantinou he was beaten by both and overtaken by a fast finishing Arthur Thompson. He finished in 48m 46s, a little down on form, in 14th position. Dave Delaney had an even better race finishing in 33rd place in 53m 51s about two minutes ahead of expectation. Peter Crane had a race long battle with Phil Goodman and was just edged out to finish in 36th position in 55m 47s. He was closely followed by fellow club member Dave Hoben in 37th position in a good 56m 37s. New member, Sandra Campbell, just failed to break the hour but did a personal best of 60m 22 and was just ousted by fellow club member and former Olympic Sliver Medallist Paul Nihill who finished in 58m 36s, a personal best for the last three years. To cap a good afternoon Surrey Walking Club finished in third Team position. Click here for photos from the race|
