Defending Champion opens Heritage Championships with win

Stuart Le Noury opened up the Sarnia Walking Clubs Heritage Group Championships with an easy win over 5 kilometres as he crossed the line in 25.17. An early challenge from Rob Elliott over the first of four laps in which both walkers were heading for a sub 25 minutes time came to nothing as an old injury curtailed his effort, leading to him strolling the rest of the race. Third place went to Phil Lockwood in 30.01, whose target in the next few months is walking the London Marathon. Kevin Le Noury managed to hold off the leading woman with his 33.25, ahead of Peter Beckerleg and Mick Le Sauvage. Dave Dorey lost out in a sprint with Kay Coulson as he finished 7th in the mens section ahead of Alan Roger who was making a recent return to the event and newcomer Brandon Bell.

The performances of the day were by Olga Sinkevica who was the first woman home in 33.49 with a big improvement on her last race over the slightly shorter 3 miles distance and fourth placed Kay Coulson with a new personal best time by 37 seconds. Second home was Marie Macdonald in 34.51 in her first race over the distance, followed by Jayne Le Noury. Completing the field were Karen Farman and Sarah Wright who crossed the line together in 40.49.
