Office Solutions Chilcott Cup
7 miles road walk
Albecq to North Side, Guernsey
Lockwood retains Chilcott Cup  
Phil Lockwood (centre) retained the Office Solutions Chilcott Cup when winning by less than a minute from second placed Rob Elliott (in yellow) over the 7 miles course from Albecq to North Side.
Stuart Le Noury (in black), the favourite before the start finished a distant third. Ten walkers faced the starter on a cold and windy morning on the coastal course.
The leading three walkers were together for the first two miles, with Lockwood making the pace alongside Elliott. Le Noury was tucked in behind them, with the leading two expecting him to move ahead when he wanted to. Having just finished a long training run just before the start, it was thought he would ease into the walk steadily.
Going into the third mile and Le Noury moved ahead to pass the 3 mile point in 27.40, with Lockwood a few seconds down in second and Elliott a similar distance back in third. The pecking order had seemingly been set, until with half the race gone Le Noury hit a bad patch as the mornings miles caught up with him and he was soon passed by the other two.
Going through five miles and Lockwood was in the lead by around a minute from Elliott. Elliott tried hard to close the gap in the final miles as he sensed Lockwoods concern as Lockwood took a few glimpses back as to Elliotts whereabouts.
The gap came down a little but Lockwood crossed the line in 65.26. 44 seconds ahead of the second man home, in a repeat one two from last years race.
Jayne Le Noury was the leading lady finishing in 79.01 from Rose Druckes and Joanne Le Prevost. Newcomer Peter Beckerleg had a good race in his first seven mile event, coming home in 84.33. Mick Le Sauvage clipped his old age best time from 2010 by 14 seconds.
The next race is on Friday April 5th at Footes Lane at 6.30 pm. The event is the Office Solutions Eric Waldron Trophy over a distance of 2 miles. Details from Jayne Le Noury,
