British Masters Indoor Championships 3km, Lee Valley 8th Mar 15
Two men and two women from Surrey Walking Club braved the top indoor mastersí race for the UK Championship held, once again, at Lee Valley. Of these it was Roger Mitchell who used the nature of the event to produce a very good time and record a seasonís best. It was unfortunate however that, while the other three came away with gold medals, Roger came away empty-handed as he was only 4th in the most competitive age-group with the first three all of high quality and slightly younger. This was disappointing but takes nothing from his improvement and al least he was not last in the this, the largest group. Malcolm Martin fared best of the other three with a time much in line with other recent races and wife, Angela was not far off. Sandra Campbell continues to find the indoor banking difficult but still perseveres and won her age group.
