Heritage Group Championships Race 2
10,000 metres track walk
Osmond Priaulx, Guernsey
Le Nourys lead the field
Stuart Le Noury came close to lapping the whole field in the Sarnia Walking Clubs Heritage Group Championships over 10,000 metres at the Footes Lane track. The race was held in cold and wet conditions and Stuart and brother Jason headed the field virtually together for the first 8 of 25 laps, before Jason started to lose ground.
Both walkers had gone through 3,000 metres in 15 and a half minutes, but by the halfway point Stuart had a good half minutes lead. After a consistant 14 laps Stuart slowed a little for the next 5 before ending up getting progressively faster for the final 4, recording a couple of sub 2 miniute laps at the end. He crossed the line in 51.38, almost two minutes ahead of Jason.
Making the most of the absence of a few of the faster walkers, father Kevin Le Noury made it a family one, two, three as he finished in 69.44. Mick Le Sauvage took fourth spot and claimed the handicap win. Newcomer Peter Beckerleg walked well in his first race over the distance for 5th place in the mens Championship.
Jayne Le Noury took the honours in the womens Championship with a time of 71.44, ahead of Rose Druckes.
In the Jubilee Tankard Handicap Championship held in conjunction, Peter Beckerleg leads the placings from Mick Le Sauvage.
The next walk is on Sunday March 24th over a distance of 7 miles. Start time is 9.30 am at Albecq and finishing at North Side. The event is the Chilcott Cup. Details from Jayne Le Noury,
