The next two Sarnia races are the Church to Church walk on Sunday September 6th preceded by a Friday Evening 3 kilometres road walk on September 4th at 6.30 pm at Les Amarreurs, Vale.

Church to Church Road Walk

This years annual Church to Church walk will take place on Sunday September 6th at 9.00 am. The 19.4 miles course, starting and finishing at Havelet bay, South Esplanade, is walked between the islands Parish Churches and has been a regular event in the Guernsey sporting calendar since the 1930s. Despite falling behind the atttractions of other endurance based events, it still attracts the stalwart racewalkers and casual walkers of the island.

With a generous time limit of 5  hours 30 minutes, it is well within reach of the walker just out to get around the course to say they have completed it as well as the seasoned racewalker. The event is open to men and women aged 17 years and over.

A small field is expected to take part with local walkers joined by a number of regular competitors from the UK. Past winners Jim Ball and Ed Shillabeer from England are expected to be on the start line alongside local winner Stuart Le Noury.

The womens walk should feature last years Star Trophy winner for first local, Marie Macdonald and Olga Sinkevica, who has recently won the clubs womens Championship. The walk is open to all and full details can be found at the Church website at or Jayne Le Noury
