Sarnia Walking Club

3 kilometres and 1.5 kilometres road walks

Cambridge Park, Guernsey

Double for Stuart

Stuart Le Noury scored two easy wins in the Sarnia Walking Club events held on new courses at Cambridge Park. Facing leaves and acorns on the ground, freshly fallen from the windy conditions the night before, 11 walkers started the longer walk.

Trialling the lap of 600 metres for the first time, Stuart had the company of brother Jason for two laps as they crossed the line in 6.39, after an opening 3.19. Jason pulled out of the race at this point with reoccurring injury, whilst Stuart increased his speed over the next three laps with 3.19, 3.14 and a closing lap of 2.57 for a final time of 16.08.

Second home was Kevin Le Noury in 20.14 followed by Marie Macdonald and Donna Allan in 20.45 and 20.48 respectively. 

Marie had opened up a gap of eight seconds on Donna with a lap to go, cut to three by the finish.

Peter Beckerleg again got the better of Mick Le Sauvage with his 21.23, who in turn held off the third woman home Kay Coulson. An out of sorts OLga Le Noury finished in 22.11 with Jayne Le Noury, losing time removing a stone from her shoe on the first lap, just falling short of catching last man home Dave Dorey.

In the shorter walk over 1.5 kilometres on a 750 metres lap, Stuart recorded 8.05, another one to fall victim of a stone in his shoe, with Rob Elliott in 8.22 taking second place. Fastest of the women was Donna Allan 11.06 ahead of Kay Coulson in 11.12. Jayne Le Noury reversed the positions of the first race beating Dave Dorey by a minute.

The next walk is on Sunday October 30th at 9.30 am at Les Amarreurs. The distance is 3 kilometres for the Peter Kendal Pairs Trophy.
