A note on the mens ranking list referred to above and reproduced below. Most walkers best times were set on the roads on wheel measured courses in Guernsey, due to the absence of a track whilst they were at their best. Those times marked (e) were set en route.
The fastest track time recorded was 6.40.8 set by Mark Elliott in 2005, with Carl Thomson recording 6.56 in 1995. Stuart Le Nourys sub 7 minute time is just ahead of Len Duquemins 7.01.3 set in 1968 in England, which is the Guernsey native M35 best time.
