Swansea University Chunder Mile 2013

By Richard Mann
Steve Jones, the founder of the Swansea Trotters, secured 1st place at Swansea University’s Annual Chunder Mile 2013, with a time of 6:17, narrowly missing out on the club record for the event.

On a glorious summer day, a field of 25 strong “athletes” took to the Chunder Mile. With many of the big names missing from this years mile, the event was wide open for the taking. First off the line was Stephen Richards, however this slim advantage was quickly overhauled by the eventual winner and Swansea Trotters President, Steve Jones, dominating the race from start to finish.

Steve recorded an impressive time of 6:17, 11 seconds shy of the club record held by the former Track & Field Captain 2011-2012, Lewis Banner.

Mike Hall, the new Triathlon Club Captain, was the first of the current students home in 2nd place with a time of 7:38, followed shortly after by the first women, Sian Edwards, who recorded a time of 7:49 in 3rd place overall.
