Sammy Walker – World Champion!!!

Sammy with the Gold!!!

The evergreen, inspirational and down-right gutsy, Alastair ‘Sammy’ Walker is the V60, 10,000m Road Race World
Champion.

Sammy is currently in Malaga competing at the World Masters. It was early on Sunday morning among a strong field of 82 runners from all over the world that Sammy romped home to victory in 35 minutes 58 seconds.

Sammy led home a British 1-2-3 with regular age group rival Paul Mingay (36:38) second and Jon Cross (37:20) third.

The Harriers ‘Legend,’ continues to train and compete at an unbelievably high standard and deserves enormous credit for his commitment to running.

On behalf of everyone at Teviotdale Harriers, Sammy, a massive, massive well done. You’re proof of what consistent and thorough training can achieve. 

Keep up the good work…
