Bob Wright Handicap Series Race 5

5 kilometres road walk

North Side, Vale, Guernsey

Personal Best for race winner

Race winner Kevin Allan, set off first in the fifth race of the Bob Wright Handicap Series, crossed the line in a new personal best time of 37.52, removing around two minutes off his previous time. Over a minute behind in the handicapped race was Stuart Le Noury who only just failed to walk through the field from his position of back marker with an actual time of 26.11.

The race, held on the two lap course around Vale Castle had walkers brought to an almost standstill for some of the route, affecting some more than others. Kevin Le Noury in third seemed to deny the conditions with a good walk, holding off Phil Lockwood who was competing for the first time since August. Two women had good races with 5th placed Jayne Le Noury up on her last race and 7th placed Wendy Wilson very close to her recent personal best time. Sandwiched between these two was Peter Beckerleg.

Kay Coulson held off the faster finishing Rob Elliott and Donna Allan. Rob having made up the 45 seconds handicap on Donna making the most of the head on windy conditions which he could see was blowing Donna around. The helpful wind in the final straight enabling him to push open past Donna in the final metres. Evergreens Mick Le Sauvage and Dave Dorey bringing up the rear of a good sized local field.

After five races in the Bob Wright Series and with two to go there is still everything to walk for. With the two lowest scores disregarded we have 7 walkers separated by only four points. 

1 Kevin Allan M40 37.52 (watch time) / 0.00 (handicap) / 37.52 (actual time)

Stuart Le Noury ends year with another win

A welcome break in the recent stormy weather meant the last race in the Sarnia Walking Clubs 2017 calendar was walked in fairly good conditions apart from  a headwind along the coastal finish. The lap course was from the Imperial Hotel with a stiff climb to Torteval Church before the drop back to the coast at Rocquaine. As expected Stuart Le Noury led the way home in a swift 26.06, followed by father Kevin Le Noury in 33 minutes. 

Wendy Wilson was first woman home in 35.38, holding off Olga Le Noury who finished 13 seconds behind. Mick Le Sauvage was a further few seconds behind. Jayne Le Noury passed  newcomer Kevin Allan in the final mile with Rob Elliott finishing alongside him.

Bob Wright Handicap Series Race Four

3 kilometres road walk

Cambridge Park, Guernsey 

Handicap win for Wendy Wilson

Wendy Wilson moved into third place in the Bob Wright Handicap Series after the fourth of seven races, when winning the latest race over three kilometres on the twisting 950 metres lap at Cambridge Park. Her actual time was a new personal best time of 20.45, taking nine seconds off her previous best set recently.

Second place went to Kevin Le Noury moving back into form with 20.01. A good race from Kay Coulson gave her third place from Rob Elliott who walked the fastest time of the day just outside 17 minutes. He managed to reverse the order over next to finish Donna Allan who had beaten him over 10 kilometres the week before.

Donna started 20 seconds ahead of Elliott, who made up the gap easily and moved ahead in the first lap of three. He held on to his advantage until a few hundred metres from the end when Donna made the effort to move ahead and open up a gap herself before fading in the final straight where Elliott regained his position.

MIck Le Sauvage, Dave Dorey and Peter Beckerleg, the remaining walkers all finished within 14 seconds of each other on handicap.

There is now a close race in the series with four points separating the first four walkers with Mick Le Sauvage leading Donna Allan by a point followed by Wendy Wilson and Peter Beckerleg.

1 Wendy Wilson W50 22.30 (watch time) / 1.45 (handicap) / 20.45 (actual time)

North Side Circuit, Vale, Guernsey

Donna Allan breaks the hour barrier

Donna Allan had the walk of the day as she smashed the hour barrier for the 10 kilometres road walk held over the four lap course at North Side. With race winner Stuart Le Noury away and gone from the start it was Donna that found herself trailing Rob Elliott after one 2.5 kilometres lap with both on course to break the hour. By three kilometres she had caught Elliott and left him, with both walkers walking well up on their recent performances. 

Going through the half way point in around 29.45 for 5 kilometres, Donna had a lead of around 30 metres over Elliott and under her previous best for that distance. Looking smooth she continued to open up the gap and walking a slightly quicker second half she crossed the line in 59.21, taking almost four minutes off her time set in the corresponding race last year. 

Race winner Le Noury had crossed the line in 54.29, with Elliott, still with a shout of getting under the hour with a lap to go, faded to finish nine seconds outside but pleased to get that close again. 

Fourth place went to Kevin Le Noury just breaking 70 minutes, with the next three home Peter Beckerleg, MIck Le Sauvage and Wendy Wilson all finishing close together. Newcomer Wendy Wilson, after only a handful of races removed over 5 minutes off her previous best time with a time of 1.13.07. Jayne Le Noury walked under her target time to bring home the field in the longer race.

In the 5 kilometres walk Olga Le Noury finished first in 36.14, ahead of Kay Coulson.

Le Sauvage leads Series 

Mick Le Sauvage leads the Bob Wright Handicap Series after three of the seven races completed. His sixth place in the latest race gives him a two point lead over Peter Beckerleg and Donna Allan.

A windy morning greeted the walkers with the fastest Stuart Le Noury walking through the field to cross the line first from his position of last walker to start. His actual time of 14.36 gave him the handicap win from Dave Dorey. Dave’s 22.11 actual time was almost a minute up on his last performance.

Third place went to Rob Elliott only five seconds ahead of first woman Donna Allan. A closely packed race had positions 2 to 9 separated by only 35 seconds. 

There were consistent times in comparison to recent walks from relative newcomers Wendy Wilson and Kevin Allan , both coping well in the conditions.

At the other end of the scale, Kevin Le Noury, with over forty years experience, walked his first race as an M60 with a time slower than expected.

Peter Kendal Pairs Trophy

Sunday October 29th 2017

Sarnia Walking Club

Peter Kendal Pairs Trophy 3 kilometres road walk

Les Amarreurs, Vale, Guernsey

Stuart and Wendy paired for Peter Kendal win

The pairing of Stuart Le Noury and newcomer Wendy Wilson were over a minute too good for the other teams in this perhaps unique Peter Kendal event. Second place went to Donna Allan and Olga Le Noury both walking good races, with third place going to the experienced Rob Elliott and newcomer Kevin Allan.

Wendy Wilson had the walk of the day walking much quicker than in her last few races to cover the 3 kilometres in 20.54. Stuart had the quickest time of the day at the shorter distance with a 7.20 clocking on what was a hard day to race with a head on wind up the longest part of the course. There was a smile from Wendy as this was the first time she had ever won a trophy in any sport.

Walkers are paired together with the entrants split between the faster and slower walkers in the race.

The teams start on handicap based on the slower walkers predicted times with the faster walker walking behind their teammate for half of the race, before all setting off at their own pace, resulting in a 3 kilometres result for the slower walkers and a 1.5 kilometres result for the faster. The faster walkers have their race predicted handicap added on at the finish.
