Guernsey Race Walking : Sarnia Walking Club

August 14, 2012

Olympics

Filed under: 5 miles, Rob Elliott — sarnia @ 7:23 pm

A group of Sarnia Walking Club members were taking in the Olympic race walks in London and watching Guernsey athlete Lee Merrien compete for Great Britain in the marathon over the recent days. Hopefully inspired by watching the worlds best race walkers they will return to Guernsey competition with renewed enthuisiasm.

It was a chance to see old friends again amongst the huge crowds lining the 2 kilometres road walk course. Rob Elliott took the opportunity to meet walkers he last raced against thirty years ago in the Commonwealth Games, namely Murray Lambden from the Isle of Man and Tim Erickson, whose son competed in the 2012 Olympic walk, from Australia. Peter Ryan, a past Church to Church winner from England took the photo of Rob talking to Tim after the 50kms race.

During the Olympics, Ron Wallwork organised a Friendship Walk at Enfield over various distances. Carl Thomson raced the 5 miles event, finishing in third place in 39.47, close to race winner Fransisco Reis who won with 39.24. Ian Richards was third, only seconds behind Carl. Carls time is a new Guernsey Age Best, beating the time of Mick Elliott who walked 40.37 back in 1984. Fast starts from Reis and Richards saw Carl 40 seconds down within a mile or so, clawed back in the latter stages as Richards was overtaken. Carl ran out of road as Reis hung on for the win.
