A large contingent of HW athletes were in action over the bank holiday weekend competing in the Vitality London road races. Ross Franks was just pipped into second place in a tight finish in his Westminster Mile race on Sunday. 'It was my first experience of the race and I absolutely loved it! I am happy with how I ran, said Franks. 'I sat off the lead runners with 800 metres to go but I just didn’t have enough to out-sprint the lead runner!'
Lisa Thomas and Anna Garnier (below) won the W50 and W60 categories in 5:40 and 6:29 respectively. Thomas was in action again on Bank Holiday Monday in the 10km road race finishing third in her age category in 40:50. Richard McDowell and Matt Sharp were second and third in the M40 category in 31:32 and 31:59. All in all there were 24 HW runners among the record 19465 finishers.
