1500 metres track walk
Osmond Priaulx Playing Fields, Guernsey
Jason Le Noury had an easy win in the Sarnia Walking Clubs first ever 1500 metres senior track walk. He moved away from brother Stuart in the second half of the race to come home in a time of 6.45.8. This time was on par with his recent, slightly longer, effort over one mile. Stuart Le Noury took second place ten seconds behind, with Phil Lockwood taking third place in 7.10.
Jasons time surpassed that of the 1976 efforts of Mick Elliott and 17 years old Rob Elliott when they finished in first and second in 6.58.0 and 6.58.2 respectively in a GIAAC walk, held on the cinder track at Footes Lane. Thirty two years later Rob finishes fourth in 7.25. That was the last time the distance had been walked in Guernsey, although Mark Elliott put up a fast time in the mid 1980`s in another GIAAC promotion, which unfortunately was started at the wrong line.
It should be noted that Mark Elliott has recorded a 6.40.8 for the longer distance of one mile (110 metres longer, apx 25seconds).
