Jack Fitzgerald Memorial Walks 21 September 2013

Veterans AC 10.325km road and supporting races

Tilgate Park, Crawley

Veterans AC were pleased to have the largest field for some time on a lakeside course once used as the test bed for Britain's water speed record round scenic Campbell's lake.

Conditions were ideal being overcast, mild and windless. Surrey Walking Club had six out of the 15 in the main race. Recent British Masters record breaker Ian Richards of Steyning had a comfortable win, with Portuguese international Francisco Reis of Ilford AC and Trevor Jones of Steyning AC doing battle for second and third place respectively. There were six ladies over all distances, Steyning AC's triathlete Joan Lennon had a really good race coming just inside the hour. Jack Fitzgerald had been a member of SWC for about twenty years, and was a key figure and founder member of Veterans clubs, it is hoped that this dedicated race will be an enduring legacy.
