|The second Enfield League event saw a reasonable field of almost 40 with other events removing most of the juniors and some veterans although Surrey Walking Club’s Malcolm Martin competed in this race as well as the Championship the next day. There were 5 other SWC at the Donkey Lane playing fields including the winner, David Crane, in his best time over this course as he was only just over 40 minutes and well clear of George Wilkinson, a promising Under 17. A few places down Malcolm was fourth as he gradually comes back to form. Chris Flint and David Hoben were further down in reasonable times with David encouraged by a position well ahead of the back of the field. The shorter events saw two of the SWC female group as Kathy Crilley (3 miles) and Angela Martin completed 2 miles recovering from injury.|
