Bedell Cristin Guernsey Partnership 2 miles track walk for Eric Waldron Trophy

Another New Allcomers Best for Guernsey Racewalker
Carl Thomson broke the Guernsey Allcomers 2 miles track record set over 40 years ago by Len Duquemin on the grass track at Cambridge Park, when winning the Eric Waldron Trophy in 14.40.4. The distance has only rarely been walked on the track in Guernsey, but the time removed six seconds from the old record. Duquemin still has the Guernsey Record of 14.04 set in England. Carl himself has recorded 14.02 on the road.
Carl had the attention of young Jason Le Noury at his shoulder for three laps, in the Bedell Christin sponsored race, with Thomson going through the mile in around 7.24. Le Noury, feeling the effects of racing in England the previous day, slowly fell behind before crossing the line in a new personal best time of 15.06. In third place was defending Champion Stuart Le Noury in 16.06. Phil Lockwood, who like Le Noury had raced the day before, smashed his best time with a 16.32 clocking. Best of the ladies was Jayne Le Noury in 21.55, closely followed by Jane Rowlinson in 22.24.
Jason Le Noury and Phil Lockwood had raced at Horsham in windy conditions the day before in the Slater Bryce Memorial Track Walk over 10,000 metres. Le Noury finished in third place, well behind race winner Alex Wright (45.26), but close to second spot as Trevor Jones only finished three seconds ahead after a close race throughout. Le Noury`s time of 49.46 was only five seconds slower than his best time set only weeks ago in much better conditions. Sussex born Phil Lockwood came home in 56.04 and finished in 2nd place in the Sussex Championships held in conjunction.
The next walk is on Sunday April 5th over 7 miles. The course is from Albecq to North Side, starting at 9.30 am. It if for the Bedell Cristin Guernsey Partnership sponsored Chilcott Cup. Details from Jayne Le Noury. Tel 246865

10,000 metres track walk at Horsham, Sussex
Slater / Bryce Open Memorial Walk and Sussex Champs
Copied below, report on Lockwood from
Sussex Track Walking championships.
A bitterly cold and blustery wind, garnished with the odd shower of rain, made life difficult for the walkers in the “Jeff Slater” and “Pat Bryce” 10,000 metres walking races at Broadbridge Heath, which incorporated the Sussex championships.
Alex Wright from Belgrave stormed well clear to win the Open race in a 45:26 with Trevor Jones taking second place, and the Sussex title, in 49:43.
Former Brighton & Hove walker Phil Lockwood must have had a rude awakening as he made the journey from the Channel Islands where he now lives, to take the silver medal in 56:04, placing sixth overall, just one place ahead of Richard Emsley who clocked 57:12.
In the women’s’ race Helen Middleton from Enfield took the Pat Bryce trophy in 60:26 with Anne Bellchambers taking the Sussex crown in 63:20.
