Piette Trophy

3.8 miles handicap walk

Rocquaine Bay, Guernsey

From last to first

Scratch walker Dave Dorey may well have thought he was on his way to another Piette Trophy handicap win over 3.8 miles as he still led the race along the Rocquaine coast road with a couple of hundred yards still to go. Peter Beckerleg thought otherwise as he sidestepped Dave and overtook him to gain the lead and head for the win himself. But with the sound of fast closing footsteps he had to give second best to last man to start Stuart Le Noury who crossed the line first with an actual time of 30.34.

Beckerleg held on to second place with no response from the long time leader Dorey.

Last years winner Rob Elliott finished close to his time of last year but found himself back in fourth place. First woman home was Olga Le Noury beating her old best time and finishing in under 43 minutes, ahead of second woman Kay Coulson. Husband and wife Kevin and Jayne Le Noury finished in seventh and eight places.

The next walk is the 9th race in the Heritage Championships over a distance of 10 kilometres at Delancey Park at 9.30 am. It will soon be the longest walk in the clubs calendar when walkers take part in the annual Church to Church Walk over 19.4 miles on September 3rd.
