|This has been a busy period for racewalking with events clashing recently. The most prominent was last week-endís National Masters 10km within the usual Jim Sharlott Open. The race was well attended with thirty out including two Surrey walking Club. The winner was Under 20 George Wilkinson, whose elder brother Callum was also winning not too far away at the Senior 20km Championships on the same day. The SWC pair were second team in the Leicester event with a fourth place from Francisco Reis despite a slightly slow time due to injury while Roger Michell was slightly above his recent average. Needless to say Francisco was first M55 while Roger, unfortunately among two outstanding walkers who happen to be in his group, took M70 bronze. The first of the other two was Ian Richards (Steyning M70) ahead of Francisco in third and first overall master|
