National RWA 10km Champs 28th Apr 19
The biggest National event of the year, the 10km plus full range of younger age-group races, attracted 73 starters split in roughly equal parts between the seniors and all of the Under 20 groups. Surrey Walking group had four in the older section and interest via coaching in two youngsters from Blackheath & Bromley. The first home for SWC was Francisco Reis in an isolated 5th. Times were on average a very slightly down and this was true of Francisco and Malcolm Martin in 8th however Roger Michell down in 11th had a good race as he broke sixty four and a half minutes. Although Fransisco was ineligible for the SWC team being classed as Portuguese, the other two claimed third team place and had all three scored they would have been second behind an excellent turnout from Manx Harriers. The two Blackheath girls did well with Carla Forsyth winning her Under 13 2km race in a big personal best and Abi Smith 3rd in the 3km although down on her best.
