Three under the Hour in tight battle at Bury

DICK AND ZENA 10k and 5k TRACK RACES, BURY, MAY 25

Roy Gunnett reports:

Eleven walkers took part in the Bury track 10k and 5k races – 8 in the former, 3 in the latter. Weatherwise it was a pleasant May day. From the gun the 10k field quickly sorted into two groups. Out front Martin Fisher, tony bell and Tony Malone – all walking at sub 60 minute 10k pace. Behind were the rest of the field closely bunched together at around 70 minute 10k pace.

Towards the end of the race Martin pulled ahead of Tony Bell, who in turn puled ahead of Tony Malone – all attained a time under the hour. In the 5k it was a close contest between John Payn and Andrea Lennon with Andrea finally getting the better.

The 10k handicap trophy was won by Tony Bell and the ladies 5k handicap trophy was won by Andrea Lennon.
