|The annual Church to Church race was rather low in turnout with 12 finishers partly due to the World Masters Championships starting the same weekend in Malaga. Although cool at the 9am start, temperatures climbed as the race progressed and all were on the road during the hottest part of the day. Surrey Walking Club usually has at least four or five out but this time it was just David Hoben carrying the Club’s hopes for 19.4 miles round Guernsey. His time of just over four and a half hours was well down on last year’s 4:10 but not his slowest either. Perhaps his great mileage walked recently is catching up on him. The winner for the third time was local man Stuart Le Noury just over 3:10 and his second quickest.|
