Sarnia Walking Club

5 kilometres road walk

Cambridge Park, Guernsey

Stuart Le Noury wins again

Stuart Le Noury was first over the line in the Sarnia Walking Clubs 5 kilometres walk at Cambridge Park. After his slower opening kilometres with two kilometres reached in 10.29, he increased the pace to record 5.09, 5.02 and 4.59 for the final three to cross the line in 25.39. Isolated second and third places went to Phil Lockwood in 32.46 and Kevin Le Noury 34.35.

The race for fourth was won by Peter Beckerleg, who had the close company of Dave Dorey for more than half of the race. Dorey looked like getting caught by Mick Le Sauvage with one kilometre to go but perhaps sensing the challenge increased his pace to pull clear by ten seconds at the finish for fifth place.

The two women Olga and Jayne Le Noury strolled around the course together in just over 42 minutes. 

The next walk is the first race in the Bob Wright Handicap Series over a distance of 5 kilometres at Saumarez Park at 9.00 am on Sunday September 30th. All are welcome to come and have a go.

Church to Church 19.4 miles

Sunday September 2nd 2018

 

Sarnia Walking Club

ABN-AMRO Private Banking Church to Church 19.4 miles walk

South Esplanade, St Peter Port, Guernsey

 

Third win for Stuart in traditional Church to Church walk

 

Stuart Le Noury walked to his third overall win in the annual Church to Church walk over 19.4 miles in a walk sponsored by ABN-AMRO Channel Islands Ltd. His winning time of 3 hours 11.24 was his second quickest time and walked in conditions that grew hotter as the race progressed.

Out on his own and unchallenged throughout the walk he had built up a lead of almost 5 minutes by the 4 miles point at the airport after walking from the South Esplanade and up the twisting hills and lanes via Cornet Street and Les Vardes, passing St Martins Church on the way through.

Rob Elliott had settled into second place and walking steadily had a lead over third men Phil Lockwood and Ian Torode, a visitor in his first Church walk, of nearly four minutes at the same point.

Leading woman Wendy Wilson passed by in 49 minutes with a 50 seconds lead over Ana Sahati. The expected leading woman Donna Allan, the Sarnia Walking Club Champion, was sidelined and had to be a frustrated spectator on doctors orders after an untimely recent visit to the hospital. 

After walking on to Torteval and through the ups and down hill sections to St Peters and St Saviours, Le Nourys lead increased as he passed the ten miles point at Les Vauxbalets in 1.35.45. Elliott, as last year hit that distance in a shade over 1 hour 50 minutes but was to soon start struggling with his pace noticeably slowing soon afterwards.

Other competitors were relatively close together with local Phil Lockwood, Ian Torode and Glyn Jones all in with a chance of third place going into the final miles.

Stuart, still well in control went through 15 miles at the Vale Church in around 2 hours 22 minutes and only slowing slightly claimed a convincing victory back in St Peter Port after negotiating the crowds at the Sea Front Sunday and on to the finish at South Esplanade. 

Elliott was still walking at his reduced pace as he glanced at the clock at Vale Church showing around 2 hours 50 minutes, thinking back to the days when he would reach the finish in that sort of time.

As conditions got hotter the walkers were sorting themselves out with Glyn Jones from Coventry Godiva, with a few Church walks under his belt claimed third place in 3.48.46. A couple of minutes behind was Ian Torode, a race walker from the south west of England, who held off Phil Lockwood by another few minutes.

 Stephen Cartwight, another first time competitor from Colchester and Tendring finished in 6th place in 3.55.23, ahead of regular visitor Sean Pender from Enfield in 3.57.27. Past winner and another regular walker to Guernsey events, Ed Shillabeer added another finish to his total with his slowest time in the walk, finishing in over 4 hours for 9th place. His best time was a winning 2.40.58 back in 1989. Ed recently walked for 11 hours in a 24 hours walk.

 Isle of Man walker, now working in Guernsey, John James Cooper finished in 4 hours 21.05. It was his first Guernsey walk but he has completed the Isle of Man version of the Guernsey race three times, with their distance being much further at 85 miles.

 Regular visitor David Hoben struggled in the closing stages but crossed the line for another finish in 4 hours 36. Less than five minutes behind was first local woman Ana Sahati with a winning time of 4.41.25. Second woman was regular local walker Wendy Wilson, walking much further than she has done before and struggling in the second half of the race. To her credit, she held on to finish as second woman in 4.56.41 and now has a trophy to show to her father Roger Brehaut who walked to second place in 1955 with a time of 3 hours 27 minutes in front of a big crowd at the finish.

 Today saw the end of a competitive streak by stalwart Kevin Le Noury. He first walked the event back in 1976 and was a winner of the Victory Cup for the first Channel Islander to finish back in 1987 and until today was an ever present on the start and finish line. Today he was officiating.
