Opening wins for defending Champions
The two Heritage Group Champions from last year opened up the 2013 Championships with easy wins in the 5 kilometres event. In cold conditions, Stuart Le Noury dominated the Mens race with Jayne Le Noury doing likewise in the Womens.
On the four lap circuit at Saumarez Park Stuart had the company of Phil Lockwood for the first lap, with Rob Elliott not too far behind. Going into lap two and as Stuart was pulling away Phil was pulling up with a strained muscle before reaching 1500 metres. Phils race was finished leaving Elliott in second place.

Jayne Le Noury led the women from the start, finishing with a time of 35.32. Relative newcomer to racewalking, Harriet Payne came second in 39.36 ahead of third woman Kay Coulson.Alison Matthew
