Bob Wright win for Kevin Le Noury

A determined Kevin Le Noury made sure of a first overall win in the Bob Wright Handicap Series passing nearest challenger Mick Le Sauvage in the final quarter of a mile in the 5 miles event. Mick had taken the lead in the small field of walkers with less than two miles to go to maximise his small chance of a series win. Meanwhile Kevin had left Phil Lockwood behind mid race after both had been set off together, to begin his chase to catch the early leaders.  Dave Dorey, narrowly beaten by fastest walker of the day Stuart Le Noury with his 42.12, eventually finished 4th ahead of Phil Lockwood and held on to third place in the series.

1 Kevin Le Noury  M60 1.03.53 (watch time) / 8.00 (handicap) / 55.53 (actual time)

Mick Elliott Virtual Memorial walk

Filed under: Uncategorized — sarnia @ 7:33 pm

The Virtual Race Walking League continues with the organisers reaching week 49 and dedicating the latest week as a “Mick Elliott Memorial Race”, in memory of the Guernsey race walker who passed away recently in his home city of York.Sixty nine race walkers submitted times resulting in a tie in the mens section between Sarnia Walking Club and Quickstep.

An appropriate result between Micks race walking team and the Quickstep team which included two York race walkers. Sarnia scorers were Jason Le Noury in 4th place with a time of 9.32, backed up with brother Stuarts 10.06 for 10th and Rob Elliotts 27th place with 12.50.

The two York walkers were father and son duo Denis and Graham Jackson, both former team mates of Rob Elliott in his York Postal National Championship winning days.  Denis in 26th place finished four seconds ahead of Rob Elliott. Denis was also a work colleague with Mick Elliott at York Post Office.

Other Sarnia members to compete were Kevin Le Noury, who trained with Mick for many years, finishing in 13.11 and Mick Le Sauvage 15.32.Rob Elliott also recorded a time for the Virtual Enfield Series recording 33.05 for 5 kms for 9th place.

RESULTS: Virtual Race Walking League – Week 49 – Mick Elliott Memorial Race Another great virtual race, with many teams fighting for places again. Next week also sees the first real international racewalk in ages taking place in Slovakia, with race walkers travelling from all over the world to take part and race shoulder to shoulder again. Hopefully it’s not long to go now before the world returns to normal. Until then keep fit, have fun, and stay competitive. See you all again next week! 🙂2km Age Graded Virtual RacewalkThe full results are online at:…

I am a little behind with posts due to technical difficulties uploading to the page…hopefully now resolved.

Mick Elliott RIP

Filed under: Uncategorized — sarnia @ 7:22 pm

It saddens me to report that my dad and race walker Mick Elliott passed away peacefully after a short illness this weekend (end of February) at the age of 83 years. A race walker at his best in the 1970s he was my training companion, amongst others in my early years. He supported me in my race walking from when I started as an 11 year old. He was also a competitor in my races and then a supporter as I hit my best, feeding me in races and holding me when I needed it at the end of races and always ready with the stopwatch for split times. Rest in Peace Dad.  

Mick Elliott  1937 – 2021

The Elliott surname has long been associated with race walking in Guernsey and the Sarnia Walking Club and I am saddened to report that Mick Elliott, who started it all off in 1969 has passed away peacefully after a short illness in York at the age of 83 years old.

Micks first race was in the 1969 Church to Church walk over 19.4 miles when he finished the course in over 4 hours. He was a late starter to the sport at the age of 32 years when he progressed to Sarnia Walking Club novice events and the Inter Firms 3 miles walk where he finished second.

Within a few years he achieved 7 miles per hour with a 57 minute clocking and reduced his Church time to 3 hours 1 minute when finishing 3rd in 1972.

With hard work improvement came quickly and within another two years was Sarnia number one, taking the Club Championship in 1974 and leading the club to victory at the popular Chippenham to Calne 6 miles road walk in 7th place overall in a high quality race. A further two years as Club Champion followed.

Happier at distances up to 20 kilometres and Mick was hard to beat for those years, but came unstuck at anything longer and although able to hold the leader to halfway faltered over the final stages in anything longer, such as the Church and West Show 20 miles walk.

He achieved personal best times of 1 mile 7.00, 2 miles 14.24, 3 miles 22.16, 6 miles 45.26, 7 miles 53.30, 10 miles 76.57, 20 kms 101.10, 19.4 miles Church to Church 2.56.25, 20 miles 3.03.08.

Despite a personal best time of 2.56.25 for the Church Walk he has never won it and had to settle for a best position of 2nd. 

In 1976 the Sarnia Walking Club went back to England for the “Garnet” 10 miles walk. The team finished 4th with Mick Elliott finishing third individually in a time of just over 80 minutes.

Racing until his early 50s he walked on and off over the following years, helping out his son Rob and taking up the judging of local walks.

Son Rob continues in the sport this present day. Youngest son Mark also raced for many years. His other children Ian and Kate have also raced at times in their younger days as well as some of his grandchildren.
