National 50km plus supporting races, Hillingdon Cycle Track 5th Oct 14
There were two additional races races held at the same time as the National 50km - 10km and 20km. In the 50 km an international flavour was introduced by competitors from Spain, Canada, Brazil, Italy and South Africa. The weather conditions were ideal being dry throughout with the temperature slightly cool at the beginning of the race warm during the middle and cooling off to-wards the end. The club had one competitor in each event. In the 10km Sandra Campbell walked a consistent race to finish in exactly 75 min which was a personal best for the distance by 5 mins. In the 20km Malcolm Martin maintained a steady pace and was encouraged by being near other competitors. He finished in 1 hr 56 m 40 s - a personal best by 6 mins! In the 50 km Chris Flint walked some 20 km with Leicesterís Sarah Lightman before she drew away to finish in 6 h 3 m 23 s - a personal best by 50 mins. Chris finished in 6 h 10 m 24 s which was also a very reasonable time to stay comfortably within the time limit by over 4 minutes. Click here for photographs from the race
