Last Sunday, Alastair ‘Sammy’ Walker was once more on the hunt for National records, this time at The City of Stirling 10k Road Race.
There was to be no stopping super Sammy as he propelled himself to the top of the UK 2017 Veteran Over 60’s 10k charts, with an astonishing time of 35:49.
Just two weeks after recording the fastest UK V60 5k time for 2017, Walker claimed the long distance double and impressively sits top of two tree’s.
Sammy bested the time of Tiptree Road Runners, Paul Mingay by a mere 3 seconds and to rub salt into the wounds, it was also Mingay’s 5k time that Sammy surpassed.

The 125 Mile Relay organised by Norman Taylor with the help of his wife Jeanette, Alex & Anne Corbett was completed in exactly 17 hours and 7 minutes. The event was a huge success and enjoyed by everyone taking part.
Guess the time was won by Anne Corbett with an exact guess of 17 hours 7 minutes and money raised from this amounted to £510 with £160 donations taken on the day.
The Harriers would like to thank everyone who took part on the day and supported the club by ‘having’ a guess at the time.
