Walker Runs To Fastest Time In Britain

Local running legend Alastair ‘Sammy’ Walker continued his recent running renaissance by impressively claiming the fastest V60 5k time in Britain this year.

Competing at the recent Quayside 5k organised by Gateshead Harriers, Sammy finished first in the over 60’s category in an astonishing 17:35, smashing the record time in the process.

Finishing 60th overall in the race seemed fitting for veteran Sammy who on his Strava feed declared, “Fastest V60 time in UK 2017, mission accomplished.”
