Enfield League 5km (Race 4), Lee Valley Track 20th Apr 19
On Saturday in hot conditions the 4th Enfield League race, over 5km, was held with a light wind which affected the majority of the competitors including the three Surrey Walking Club competitors - Francisco Reis, Angela & Malcolm Martin in the main 5km. Also racing were two of Shaun Lightman’s coaching group - Abi Smith and Jonny Ellerton, both Blackheath & Bromley, in the 3km although their results are unfortunately not available yet and the published 5km results are also provisional. Francisco walked a steady race for 4km but then appeared to find the pace difficult but was still third man although somewhat down on current form. Malcolm started cautiously with a group and gradually pulled away to a reasonable time where most others were slowed by the unfamiliar heat. Abi had a good first kilometre but then wilted under the conditions as did Jonny.
