Elliott has double win

Rob Elliott did the double in the third race of the Heritage Championships, taking first place in the race and then quickest time in the handicapped race held in conjunction. With the handicap time added on to the finishing time he had a 5 seconds advantage over Kevin Le Noury.

In the absence of Stuart Le Noury who won the first two events, Elliott found himself in front throughout the race to cross the line in 16.34, well ahead of second placed Phil Lockwood in 18.01.

Elliotts time equalled the Guernsey age best time held by Terry Bates, although both walkers have quicker times at the distance on the road.

Phil Lockwood had taken part in the London Marathon the previous Sunday. He had suffered with a back problem after five miles and had to stretch it out throughout the rest of the race which he walked the entire way. His time was one to forget finishing an hour slower than last years race in just under 6 hours.

A good race by Kevin Le Noury gave him third place ahead of Mick Le Sauvage and Peter Beckerleg. Fastest of the women was Jayne Le Noury in 21.16, ahead of Kay Coulson. Kay held off Dave Dorey with a good last lap.

The next event is on Sunday May 8th at Les Amarreurs, over a distance of 3 kilometres for the Graham Mann team trophy. Start time is at 9.30 am.
