Surrey/Middlesex/Herts County and VAC Track 10km, Battersea Park 29th Apr 15
Wednesday saw the usual opening 10km of the Summer with Veterans AC hosting county Senior track 10km championships within their own event. As usual it was a pleasant evening in Battersea Park although only 10 started being almost outnumbered by the many helpers and officials. There were three Surrey men out and they started together for about 5 laps and finished in adjacent places. Shaun Lightman drew away and was well over half a lap ahead by the end while Chris Flint and Peter Hannell exchanged places several times but Chris finished 50 metres ahead. All recorded fairly good times compared with recent races with Shaun most improved as he gets back towards his form of six months ago.
