Sarnia Walking Club

5 kilometres road walk

Cambridge Park, Guernsey

Six walkers from the Sarnia Walking Club tried out another new lap of a local park, this time over 950 metres. The stroll in the park on a warm Sunday morning was successful with no course problems noted.


Donna Allan was content with walking close to Phil Lockwood through the first kilometre in 7.08, with Peter Beckerleg a close third only seconds behind. Going through 3 kilometres in 20.51 Donna had opened up a 19 seconds lead over Lockwood, increased to 2.28 by the finish.


Well off the pace after the first lap, Kay Coulson soon had Dave Dorey in her sights and reeled him in over the next few kilometres before easing ahead on the last lap.

Roy was active in the 1960s and 1970s and was a regular Church to Church competitor with a best of 3.12.55 set in 1971. He completed the course on 33 occasions between1962 and 1994.
