Elliott cruises to second Piette Trophy win

Rob Elliott secured his second win in the annual Piette Trophy handicap walk, adding to his win two years ago. The small field off walkers contested the race in hot conditions on the two lap out and back course along the coast road at Rocquaine, aided by a welcome sea breeze.

Rob passed Kay Coulson, first away and leading the race with half a mile to go and with a watchful eye on quickest in the field Stuart Le Noury coming the other way, soon worked out that victory was secure.

Kay held on to second place ahead of Phil Lockwood. 

The next club race is the final one in the Heritage Group Championships over one mile. Moving ahead to September, the annual Church to Church 19.4 miles walk will take place  on Sunday September 2nd starting at 9.00 am at South Esplanade. The route passing all the Parish Churches is open to all walkers and has a generous time limit of 5 hours 30 minutes.
