2017 Friendship Walks,
Enfield 9th August 2017
Centurion Ron Wallwork organised a Friendship Walk in Enfield on Wednesday 9th August to celebrate the IAAF World Athletic Championships taking place in London that week.
Out of a start list of 44 walkers, 12 were Centurions -including US Erin Talcott (US C.85) and Tim Erickson from Australia. Erin was due t take part in the historic Womens 50km race held on Sunday.
Various distances were on offer - 1 mile, 3 miles and 5 miles. It was a typical English summers day - very wet. However, the rain did ease off during the race itself but soon came back!
The Mayor of Enfield braved the rain to start the race and stayed for the presentation as well.
Centurions making an appearance were:
John Borgars C.1170
Gary Smith C.856
Sean Pender C.1067
Mark Byrne C.870
Kim Howard C.1020
Sue Clements C. 950
Kathy Crilley C.933
Mick Barnbrook C. 661
Bill Sutherland C.890
Dave AInsworth C.540
Ken Livermore C.386
Everyone taking part received a special momento. Tim and Erin became "Honorary Enfield Leaguers".
It was a real special social occasion, catching up with race walking friends not seen in a while. Well worth getting wet!
Thank Ron and his team.
