Kevin Le Noury 56

As Kevin will celebrate his birthday this weekend, I have reproduced and updated his Championship profile found on another of my websites.kevinle-noury

Kevin Le Noury got as close as he could to a Championship win when finishing in joint first with Dave Dorey in 1988.

The year before he had achieved his one Victory Cup win in the Church to Church 19.4 miles Walk when finishing 5th overall but more importantly first local walker to finish.

He started walking as a teenager in the mid 70`s and was soon competing at all local distances and from his first Church Walk in 1976 has yet to miss one up to and including the 2013 edition, a total of 38.

He has competed Nationally at Junior level finishing the 10 kms in 58.02 in 1977 as well as regular appearances at the Chippenham to Calne 6 miles held in England.

Kevin also has to his credit a Val des Terres Hill Climb win and a couple of Rocquaine Regatta Handicap walk victories.

Not one of the quickest walkers in the Island he is one of the most reliable as when not walking can almost surely be seen competing at his other love of running. Now aged almost 56 he still competes at both disciplines, now accompanied by his two sons and wife Jayne.

He had the honour of representing Guernsey in the 1987 Island Games 10 kms road walk held in Guernsey where he finished in 5th place in 56.03.
