BMAF 10k Open Road Race Championships


Well done to the BMAF team (largely I think SCVAC but not exclusively) that managed today’s BMAF 10k Road Race Championships held on the Gravesend Cyclopark in Kent.  Glorious weather (a tad warm for most of us) and a warm welcome from the staff made for a good race.  With representatives from eight area clubs we saw 108 finishers.

The results have been published and are available at :
