Mike Johnson wins 5k

Wednesday 29 July 2009

Cardiff's Mike Johnson won the SSAFA 5k road race held in Cardiff last Wednesday, 22 July, from team mate Chris Moss. Mike was very pleased with his winning time of 14m.45 which equalled his best time on the course and gave him an 11sec advantage over second placed Chris. Mike and Chris took an early lead in the race and ran away from the rest of the field but, as the race went on, Bristol based Mike proved the stronger on the day and thwarted Chris in his ambition to win all three races. Chris Moss had won the first two of the three race series and thus took the series title.

The women's race was won by Angela Heeley of San Domenico. She had won the first two races and was crowned series winner, the first lady to win all three races in a season.

The planned mob match between Cardiff and Swansea did not materialise but there was a good showing by Cardiff club runners including a welcome return for Aidan O'Callaghan who had been absent for a long time injured.
