BMAF 5k Road Walk Championships Horwich, Bolton
I travelled up the day before to Bolton for the BMAF 5k Road Race Walking Championships.
A 10:45 start on a 3 lap up and down town centre course. A few familiar faces but also athletes I have not raced before so I started cautiously and gradually worked my way through the field to finish 3rd with no cautions. Race winner was the incredible Ian Richards, 1980 Moscow Olympian who set a new world best having recently become a V70!
My 3rd place in (unofficial) 26:08 was enough to win Gold in the V50
