Wind and Rain for Guernsey Racewalkers
Jason Le Noury (Pictured in more favourable conditions) made light work of the wet and windy conditions along the islands west coast, when he strolled to victory in the Sarnia Walking Clubs 10 kilometres road walk between Pleinmont and Grandes Rocques.
Starting very easily, in his first walk after a recent hamstring injury, he was content to walk close to Lockwood and Elliott for the first half of the race, before moving away to chase race leader Stuart Le Noury in the latter stages.
Long time leader Stuart had to give second best to his younger brother who opened up  a nineteen second gap in the final kilometre. Jasons winning time was 53.49, with Stuart getting close to his personal best time in second place.
Lockwood and Elliott, third and fourth across the line, were together for a long time before Elliott, who was enjoying the conditions, slipped off the pace.
Kevin Le Noury was an isolated 5th place, whilst wife Jayne got close to Mick Le Sauvage and held off an inform Dave Dorey. At the back of the field was Kay Coulson who managed to improve on her previous best time, despite the unhelpful conditions.
In the handicap section of the race for the Bob Wright Handicap Series, Kay was rewarded with third place, close behind Jayne and Kevin Le Noury. Phil Lockwood now leads the Series by two points from Kevin Le Noury, with Stuart Le Noury a further two behind.
The next walk is on Sunday December 6th. Venue is Footes Lane at 9.30 am for a 1,500 metres event. Details from Jayne Le Noury, tel 246865.
