Jack Fitzgerald 10.3 km, Tilgate Park, Crawley 13th Jun 15
A dozen competitors raced over this distance and were joined by half a dozen youngsters doing 5km. Conditions were almost ideal for racing – cool and dry on a flat path around the lake. Despite racing the previous day Malcolm was rewarded by a victory in a time equivalent to 56 m 10s for 10km and still in line with other events. Davids Hoben and Delaney finished down the field but only 7 seconds apart as Delaney gradually caught up with Hoben after a cautious start but was unable to quite overtake. Cobo Corales was 4th overall and rather isolated while Shaun Lightman felt the effects of the previous evening’s win but still was not far from his current form. Just in front of Shaun was Dan Maskell who had been concerned over his fitness but in fact was able to pull away from Shaun by almost a minute on this occasion. All enjoyed the hospitality of the adjacent Golf Club as they discussed the excellent times of the youngsters whose fast times enabled them to lap many of the seniors despite only doing 5km.
