Perivale 5 miles, December 4th

A small but perfectly formed team competed in the Perivale 5 miles this month.

Conditions were chilly but good for racing.

The field of 275 entries and 240 finishers was the largest in the history of the race. As usual, runners of all ages and abilities took part: the youngest was 15, the oldest was 71; the fastest took just 26 minutes, while the last to finish walked the two-lap course in just under 90 minutes.
Nearly half the runners were unattached, but there was strong representation from clubs too: 44 different clubs in total, the largest squads coming from the Metropolitan Police, London Heathside and Ealing.

BA's team was six strong.  Results:

52nd     Gary Rushmer      M50     33:11
123rd    Joe Nolan            M50     38:47
125th    Piers Keenleyside M50     39:02
138th    Steve Taylor        M40     39:59
158th    Roderick Hoffman M50     41:47
220th    Steve Hillier         M50     49:14
