Championship 4

10 miles road walk

Pleinmont to Lancresse, Guernsey

Donna beats Island Best time

Donna Allan walked the fastest local womans time in the 4th race of the Sarnia Walking Club Championships on the point to point coastal course from Pleinmont to Lancresse over 10 miles. Her finishing time of 1 hour 36 minutes and 50 seconds was over a minute quicker than the time set by Jenny Elliott in 1999. The Allcomers best set by Cath Reader a few years earlier remained out of touch , but only by a minute.

Walkers started in misty conditions which gave way to warm conditions in the final miles. Positions were sorted out early on with Stuart Le Noury the overall winner in 1.26.50. Second place went to Donna with Rob Elliott in third place.

Phil Lockwood was a little down on his time of last year in fourth place, not far ahead of Kevin Le Noury.

Mick Le Sauvage, coming up to his 80th birthday in a few months time found the latter half of the race hard going, coming to a standstill and sit down on the nearby grass verge after his sub 2 hours 9 minutes effort.. Kay Coulson was the final walker to finish in 2 hours 15 minutes.

Donna Allan took the handicap honours from Kevin Le Noury, with Stuart Le Noury in third.
