Sarnia Walking Club

3 miles road walk

Rocquaine Bay Circuit, Guernsey

Defeat for Mens Club Champion

Sarnia Walking Club Champion Stuart Le Noury lost out in the final downhill mile to brother Jason after they had been close together for the majority of the race. The course, which takes in a stiff uphill mile from the coast at Rocquaine to Torteval Church before dropping back to the coast suited the winner better than than his closest rival.

The winners time was slower than his best on this course, but at 25.04 was 11 seconds ahead of Stuart, who set himself a personal best for the race. Indeed, eight of the walkers set new best times for the course which has only been raced on a few times, perhaps now getting used to how to pace themselves over the various hills.

Third man home Phil Lockwood in 27.44 had his best race for a while, well ahead of fourth home Kevin Le Noury in 31.38. First woman home Olga Sinkevica in 33.09 showed a huge improvement on her first effort on this course. A close fight for 6th place was won by Peter Beckerleg, literally strides ahead of young Alex Sinkevics and Dave Dorey, with Mick Le Sauvage and Marie Macdonald a further few seconds back. Third woman home was Kay Coulson ahead of Jayne Le Noury.

The next race is on Friday September 4th at 6.30 pm over 3 kilometres at Les Amarreurs, Vale. Days later on Sunday September 6th at 9.00 am the club hold the annual Church to Church 19.4 miles road walk, starting and finishing at South Esplanade. All are welcome to take part.
