VAC 5 Miles Summer League Race 6, Battersea Park 27th Aug 19
Another busy week started with the last Veterans AC 5 mile league race of the Summer which was held on a typical warm Summer evening in Battersea Park after a season of untypical weather. Numbers were down slightly during this, the holiday, period. The winner, Dave Annett of N Herts AC, was soon well clear as he mixed with the slower runners in their parallel race and in due course lapped the slower walkers with a sub 40 minute time. Behind him were four Surrey Walking Club men the first of whom was Dan Maskell who ended 30 seconds down on Maureen Noel. Paul King and David Hoben repeated their battle from the last race but this time Paul had a good race and beat David by two minutes as David struggled with the effects of several recent long races. Peter Hannell opted to finish after 3.6 miles in a slightly better time.

1. D.Annetts (N Herts M50) 38 min 11 sec; 2. M.Culshaw (Ilf M50) 49 min 27 sec; 3. M.Noel (Belg W55) 54 min 20 sec; 4. D.Maskell (Sy WC M70) 54 min 50 sec; 6. T.Casserley (Enf M80) 57 min 7 sec; 7. P.King (Belg/Sy WC M65) 57 min 42 sec; 8. D.Hoben (Sy WC M65) 1 hr 0 min 13 sec.
