British Athletics Indoor Championships, Birmingham 10th Feb 19
Two SWC members were invited to take part in the 5km walk featuring in the prestigious British Athletics Indoor Championships. This was a technically difficult event on the banked track and with strict ‘A’ race judging David Crane, like almost half the field, was removed. Francisco Reis’ normal flawless style meant a satisfactory completion in a fair time although twice the age of the winner, the excellent Tom Bosworth. Tom was careful to survive even at sub 20 minute pace although a minute outside of his 18:29 record last year.
