Stuart breaks14 minutes barrier
Race winner Stuart Le Noury broke the 14 minutes barrier for 3,000 metres for the first time in winning the Yorkshire Guernsey Championship walk. His previous best time, set three years ago was three seconds slower. He had the company of brother Jason for the first kilometre as they passed that point in 4.35, thirteen seconds ahead of third man Phil Lockwood. Stuart pulled away soon afterwards to cross the line in 13.59.8. Jason held on to second place, ahead of Phil Lockwood who slipped under 15 minutes.
In fourth place, Rob Elliott, in his first time out since pulling out of the last walk over 10 miles, walked an even paced effort in 16.48, ahead of Kevin Le Noury and Mick Le Sauvage. Elliotts finishing time was good enough to give him victory in the handicap section of the race, but Kevin Le Noury still heads this section in the series.
Another close womens race was won by Carol Bates, who with a strong last lap left Jayne Le Noury behind by five seconds. Carols winning time of 20.19 was only four seconds slower than her recent best time set on the road. Rose Duckes, third woman recorded a new Guernsey Age Best time.
The next walk is on Friday June 24th at 6.30 pm. Distance of 3 kilometres at Les Amarreurs, Vale for Race 7 of the Yorkshire Guernsey Championships.
On a sad note, Peter Kendal, a past treasurer of the Sarnia Walking Club, recently passed away at the age of 81. In his time as treasurer he had donated a trophy in his name for competition with seniors and junior walkers in a handicapped team event.
The trophy became redundant as the club had no young walkers for a number of years, but was reintroduced last year for competition.
