Enfield League 5 Miles, Enfield QEII Park 16th Feb 19
There were slightly more out for the second Enfield League event this year as the total passed the 30 mark with good weather for the time of year and more encouraging results than slower times. Surrey Walking Club had 7 out although only 5 in the main race with a couple coming back from lay-offs completing only 3 miles. Francisco Reis was first home for SWC in 3rd place after the first three changed order several times. Young George set of in the lead with Francisco and David Annetts (N Herts) together, not far behind. Annetts made a strong effort to get to the front mid-race with Francisco holding on but at the end George, with a great personal made a big effort but could not quite catch Annetts while Francisco fell back a little but still with a slightly above average time. Malcolm Martin, steadily returning from injury, was a couple of places behind Fransisco although he was separated also by three of the women’s strong and very welcome participation. The rest of the SWC team were well down the field as Shaun pushed on after a slow start but Chris Flint ended in front by a minute or so. David Hoben had a good race to finish immediately behind Shaun in position and only half a minute in time.
