VAC Summer League 5 miles, Battersea 11th Jul 17
After a long hot, dry period the VAC race was held on the first wet day which was at its heaviest during the rather poorly attended race. With a reasonable four Surrey Walking Club out they represented exactly half the field the rear half as it happened. The cooler weather was ideal for racing and the results clearly divided between those taking advantage of the temperature and exceeding expectation and those below par and further put off by the weather. Chris Flint was among the latter group but may be excused by having raced in the BMAF 20km only two days earlier and in this Battersea event having to give way to Peter Hannell.
