European Masters Indoor Championships 3km, Madrid 21st Mar 18
Two Surrey Walking Club members were part of the British team in Madrid for the European Indoor Championships over 3km with a road 5km included. Both performed well in the more important indoor event with Malcolm Martin just missing a medal by 10 seconds in 4th. Roger Michellís 5th was a little down on his 18 minute UK Masters time. The 5km saw another good position for Malcolm in 5th and only just outside 28 minutes and his best since February last year. The longer event was a struggle for Roger in 8th with a time a minute or two down on what he might have expected.
