Lewes AC 3km, Lewes 22nd Dec 19
The last Lewes race of the year was held on a showery day and the walkers were lucky to find a dry half hour. A very respectable 15 turned out with one youngster doing just 1km under UKA rules. Surrey Walking Club provided 5 in the 3km plus Peter Selby organizing and Shaun Lightman judging. In the lead from the start and winning by half a lap was Francisco Reis missing two minute laps by just 1 second overall. The next three places were tightly bunched with Malcolm Martin in fourth place holding Trevor Jones (Steyning) within 15 seconds with the competition leading to an improved performance. Somewhat isolated in 7th was David Hoben easily breaking away from the last two SWC but unable to hold David Kemp(Arena) who was almost a lap clear by the end. Angela Martin and Peter Hannell brought up the rear with, as in the previous race, Angela as unable to build a big gap as Peter was unable to close the gap behind her but both ending with good times.

1. F.Reis (Sy WC M55) 15 min 1.4 sec; 2. S.Alves (Barn W45) 16 min 12.8 sec; 3. T.Jones (Steyn M60) 16 min 26.1 sec; 4. M.Martin (Sy WC M60) 16 min 39 sec; 7. D.Hoben (Sy WC M65) 21 min 11.4 sec; 8. A.Martin (Sy WC W55) 22 min 13.6 sec; 9. P.Hannell (Sy WC M75) 22 min 27.5 sec.
