Sarnia Walking Club

Avantis Championship Race 6

3,000 metres grass track walk

Back to their roots 

Stuart Le Noury walked to a win over Rob Elliott lapping him on the line in the process as he finished in 15.33 at Cambridge Park over 3,000 metres. Phil Lockwood took third place ahead of a close race for fourth between Peter Beckerleg and Kevin Le Noury.  Peter holding the edge throughout most of the race and holding his challenger off by a second.

Leading woman was Kay Coulson in 22.25 ahead of Jayne Le Noury. For two of the walkers it was a return to the grass track at Cambridge Park after a gap of over 50 years. Making use of the temporary track whilst the Footes Lane track is being renovated and moving off the park paths, Masters walkers Dave Dorey, well into his 70s and Mick Le Sauvage almost touching 80 years old, went back to their track roots with Dave Dorey recalling the days when Sarnia Walking Club used the track for their ‘One Hour” walks amongst others.
