Dave Gordon reports on BMAF and London vitality 10Km:
“I will also salute those who ran last weekend. In particular, hats off to Mark Cursons. He took part in the British Masters Athletics Federation road mile Championships in Westminster on Sunday recording a very commendable 5.07. He was third in the V55-59 age category.
Westminster was also the venue for the Vitality 10k on Monday. Steve Bland distinguished himself running 40.21 which is even more remarkable given that he was celebrating Rotherham’s promotion to the Championship the day before. Nathan Powell was close behind with 40.44. At least he had an extra day’s recovery after cheering on Fulham’s elevation to the Premier League. Also competing were Nicky Payne 45.24 and Keith Foley 46.23.
Other club runners saw a strong run from Kevin Fini, Lucy Ashe returning to form post-marathon and Peter Norris still feeling the after effects of a bug. Mary Watkins got the betterr of daughter Katie and there was a rare outing over the longer distance for Hayley Comer (the one lap spcialist!)”
