Les Amarreurs, Vale, Guernsey
 
Good Form for Leading Trio
 
Carl Thomson walked an even paced race to take an easy victory in the Sarnia Walking Clubs 20 kilometres road walk. An opening 5 kms of 26.10, with Stuart Le Noury not far behind, was followed by a 26.30 split to reach the half way in 52.40, some two and a half minutes up on Le Noury. Le Noury called it a day at this point after suffering with knee pain. Thomson then increased the pace to a 26.10 and a fast finishing 25.49 to clock 1.44.39 at the finish. Phil Lockwood moved up into second place and came home in 1.57.51, two minutes under his pre race prediction.
Katrine Thomson, after an opening 61.57 10 kms split, recorded a faster latter half split of 60.19 to finish in 2.02.16, some 13 minutes off the fastest recorded Guernsey Womens time set in 1995 by Rose Drückes.
Husband Carl removed almost four minutes off the Guernsey Age Best time, set in a local walk, by Mick Elliott almost 30 years ago when racing at Vale Castle.
Guernseys Len Duquemin recorded the best Guernsey M40 time for the distance in England in 1973, a fast 95.32, between his two Commonwealth Games performances.
Fourth place went to Island record holder Rob Elliott, with John Dedman and Kevin Le Noury having a close race for fifth. Stalwart Mick Le Sauvage held off second woman home Jayne Le Noury. Rose Drückes completed the field as third woman.
