Pednor 5 Miles, Chesham 6th May 19
The May Bank Holiday Monday once more marked the Pednor races in Chesham with almost 300 runners and 30 Walkers appearing at this beautiful country lane course on a fine evening. Surrey Walking Club had two contestants out, both regular attendees. The scenery adequately compensates for the hills on this two lap course and the consequent slightly slow times, on average, but there were exceptions and among these was SWC’s David Hoben whose position up in the top 2/3rds of the field indicated a performance among the best in the field perhaps due to his liking for the ascents. Chris Flint, unusually behind David, was less successful in terms of position even though almost a minute faster than in 2018.
