It was wonderful to see the Kings racing domestically at their forte, with the usual contrasting fortunes ! It rarely seems acknowledged but these lads have given great service to British Athletics over the last few years with their 50km efforts. Congrats to Dom and commiserations to Dan on this occasion . . .Very impressed with Michael George and how he digs so deep, with not ideal preparation. Inspiring stuff Mike ! . . . . A shame that Ian Richards didn't make it through this time and we sincerely hope that he gets the chance to chalk up a satisfactory M65 performance in the near future . . . . .Lastly we're so pleased about young Jon Hobbs winning the very historic and newly restored RWA Trophy. He's been quietly building an impressive distance CV with 2x Church-to-Church victories already, a win in our Open 35km this summer, and now this on his 50km debut. Looking forward to see him step up to new levels ! . . . . . . Thoroughly enjoyed the Hillingdon event yesterday and a big Well Done to all, including the international contingent led by the technically impressive Odriozola.
