 Opening Yorkshire Guernsey Championship win for Stuart

 

Stuart Le Noury opened the Sarnia Walking Club Championships for 2008 with a convincing win in the Yorkshire Guernsey sponsored series. He led from start to finish to smash his previous best time by almost one minute.

 

A fast start, passing the first kilometre in 4.50 and the second at the same speed, saw him well ahead of his nearest challenger Jason Le Noury. Slowing over the latter half of the race Stuart held on to dip under 25 minutes.

 

Third place for the majority of the race was held by Phil Lockwood, with past Champion Rob Elliott within striking distance. Lockwood passed the 3 kilometres point in close to his best time for that distance and as Elliott had hoped would then slow down. Things went to plan and Lockwood was overtaken with 500 metres to go. He held on well to finish only two seconds down on Elliott who claimed third place. Lockwoods reward was a new personal best by almost a minute in 27.44.

 

Jayne Le Noury took first place in the Womens Championship, leaving Rose Druckes in second place. Jayne improved her recent Guernsey Age Best by 24 seconds.

 

The next walk is on Friday April 18th at Delancey Park. It is over 5 kilometres, starting at 6.45 pm. All are welcome. Further details from Jayne Le Noury, tel: 246865.
