Sarnia Walking Club
Bob Wright Handicap Series Race Two
5 kilometres road walk at Saumarez Park, Guernsey
Personal best for Kay
The club tried out a new course at Saumarez Park used by the local running club, consisting of four laps on a mixture of surfaces. Mostly tarmac, with some smooth hard packed “dirt” and some gravel. We manged to finish before the usual dog walkers and children on bikes came out so quite successful. Past club member Rose Druckes made a rare appearance for 2010 and led from start to finish.
Second placed walker Kay Coulson had the best personal race of the day as she removed half a minute from her previous best time in following race winner Rose Druckes home.
In the handicapped 5 kilometre road walk, Rose finished a clear winner in 36.48, with Kay recording 38.35. Third walker home in the fastest time of the day was Phil Lockwood with an actual time of 25.20. It was only the second race in the Bob Wright Handicap Series, with Lockwood currently leading from Mick Le Sauvage.
Stuart Le Noury`s slow time was down to his first walk after a groin injury, so he took things steady. Others down on usual  because of carrying injury were Jayne Le Noury and Rob Elliott. Mick Le Sauvage and Dave Dorey were together for some of the race before Mick edged away and added a few more miles to his total. He should pass the 7,000 miles in a few races time.
The next walk is on Sunday October 31st for the Peter Kendal Pairs Handicap Trophy over a distance of 3 kilometres. Start time is 9.30 am at Les Amarreurs, Vale. Details from Jayne Le Noury tel 246865.
Two other club members were in action today in Palma de Mallorca. Representing their first claim club Isle of Man VAC, Terry Bates ran the marathon in 3 hours 41 (unofficial) whilst Carol Bates competed in the 10 kms walking section finishing in 75.48.(unofficial).
