VAC 5 km, Battersea Park 15th Jul 14
Due to a number of factors the July edition of the Battersea 5 mile races organised by VAC included a good field in the running section but only three walkers all members of Surrey Walking Club - on the road. As the run was a 5km event rather than the usual 5 miles the walk was similarly held over the shorter distance. A warm evening led to rather slower times than usual and although, fortunately, the three competitors were of a fairly similar standard competition was limited. Dan Maskell came in first about a minute clear of Paul King who was more affected by the conditions. Although David Delaney was, as expected, a couple of hundred yards behind, he had a better race and appears to be coming back to form.

1. D.Maskell (Sy WC M65) 31 min 28 sec; 2. P.King (Belg/Sy WC M60) 32 min 20 sec; 3. D.Delaney (Sy WC M70) 34 min 14 sec.
