Bob Wright Handicap Series Race Four

2 kilometres road walk 

Pleinmont, Guernsey

Lockwood takes the honours

Phil Lockwood held on to win the fourth race in the Bob Wright Handicap Series from the faster finishing Rob Elliott when he crossed the line seven seconds ahead in the 2 kilometres event. The race, held in good conditions on the undulating car free out and back course from the Imperial had the walkers working hard.

Second placed Elliott gained a few points in the final metres as he overtook Peter Beckerleg and Mick Le Sauvage. 

Fifth placed Donna Allan, not quite at the speed of her recent races still broke the Guernsey Age best time held by Julie Lawlor from many years ago with an actual time of 12.27. 

After four races Donna leads the series from Peter Beckerleg, with Stuart Le Noury in third place. The series resumes in 2017 with three more races. Olga Le Noury held off father in law Kevin Le Noury back in seventh and eighth places. Last to finish was Stuart Le Noury with his 11.11 actual time recording the fastest time of the day.

Special mention to Dave Dorey in fifth place. Club stalwart Dave, sometime during this year reached the milestone of 50 years as a competitor in race walking. He competed for Guernsey in the 1970 Commonwealth Games over 20 miles and has won the prestigious Guernsey Church to Church walk . At his best he walked a sub 7 minutes mile. His 10 miles time stood at 80.15, 20 kms at 1.42.28 and 50 kms at 4.42.10.
