Heritage Group Championships Race Five

10 kilometres road walk

Pleinmont to Grandes Rocques, Guernsey

Stuart Le Noury leads the way

With a time slower than would normally be expected, Stuart Le Noury had another easy win over 10 kilometres in the fifth race of the Heritage Group Championships. Having walked the around the island 39 miles non competitive walk the day before, he was perhaps more cautious today. Rob Elliott finished in second place, slightly quicker than in his last race, with Donna Allan taking third place overall and leading woman.

Donna was the other walker in the race having taken part in the longer event the day before. Phil Lockwood, another quicker than his last race continues to improve after suffering with injury not so long ago.

Kay Coulson, the second woman held off Mick Le Sauvage for fifth place with Dave Dorey completing the line up finishing in just over 80 minutes.

In the handicap section of the race Kay Coulson finished in first place ahead of Phil Lockwood.

Huge personal best for Kevin Allan

A hot Sunday morning greeted the race walkers for their 10 kilometres walk at Delancey. The performance of the day went to the man in 4th place Kevin Allan who improved his personal best time by seven minutes to finish in 1.14.17. He has showed steady progress in recent races around this distance and found himself within a minute of the third placed walker Kevin Le Noury.

The race winner as expected was Stuart Le Noury in 56.09, winning easily from Rob Elliott. An isolated Mick Le Sauvage was fifth in 1.18.03, with equal sixth place going to women Jayne Le Noury and Wendy Wilson a few minutes further back.

Donna Allan, after racing in the Brighton marathon the week before, walked with friend and first time competitor Cara De La Mare in 1.25.24.

Donna, race walking the marathon, finished in 5.10.39. An enthusiastic start saw her pass the 10 kilometres point in 59 minutes and the half marathon in an impressive 2.13.39. She was still going well through 25 kilometres in 2.42.39 before the going got tough, passing 30 kilometres in 3.23.39. The final miles were very hard going with Donna sticking to the task of finishing.

Another Sarnia walker, Phil Lockwood, missed the local event to take place in the London marathon, finishing in 5.40.28, walking even splits after passing half way in 2.48.59.

Donna Allan breaks the hour barrier

Donna Allan had the walk of the day as she smashed the hour barrier for the 10 kilometres road walk held over the four lap course at North Side. With race winner Stuart Le Noury away and gone from the start it was Donna that found herself trailing Rob Elliott after one 2.5 kilometres lap with both on course to break the hour. By three kilometres she had caught Elliott and left him, with both walkers walking well up on their recent performances. 

Going through the half way point in around 29.45 for 5 kilometres, Donna had a lead of around 30 metres over Elliott and under her previous best for that distance. Looking smooth she continued to open up the gap and walking a slightly quicker second half she crossed the line in 59.21, taking almost four minutes off her time set in the corresponding race last year. 

Race winner Le Noury had crossed the line in 54.29, with Elliott, still with a shout of getting under the hour with a lap to go, faded to finish nine seconds outside but pleased to get that close again. 

Fourth place went to Kevin Le Noury just breaking 70 minutes, with the next three home Peter Beckerleg, MIck Le Sauvage and Wendy Wilson all finishing close together. Newcomer Wendy Wilson, after only a handful of races removed over 5 minutes off her previous best time with a time of 1.13.07. Jayne Le Noury walked under her target time to bring home the field in the longer race.

In the 5 kilometres walk Olga Le Noury finished first in 36.14, ahead of Kay Coulson.

With regular walkers either injured or on holiday the expected Championship 20 kms was replaced with a shorter 10 kms. No problem where we can make decisions swiftly on the day with only local walkers involved.

A small field contested the 10 kms road walk with the first three all walking isolated races. Stuart Le Noury was an easy winner recording 55.49 for the 4 lap course with a negative split time with the help of a 13.29 last 2.5 kms lap. Rob Elliott inexplicably struggled throughout losing three minutes in the second half with Kevin Le Noury finishing third  in 1.11.35. The two back markers Peter Beckerleg and Mick Le Sauvage walked fairly closely together with Beckerleg crossing the line first by 21 seconds.

Channel Island Ceramics Chilcott Cup

7 miles road walk

Albecq to North Side, Guernsey

Stuart wins 7 miles Chilcott Cup

Stuart Le Noury easily broke seven miles in the hour to record another win in the annual Channel Island Ceramics Chilcott Cup. On a clear warm morning he strode out from the start at Albecq and crossed the line at North Side in 58.30.

A close finish for second place was won by the experienced Rob Elliott from relative newcomer Donna Allan. Walking at a faster pace over a similar distance than her recent 10 kilometres personal best, she caught Elliott with half a mile to go and opened up a few seconds gap around the Vale Castle and heading down to the long straight finish at North Side.

A still confident Elliott held the gap for a while before catching and moving away in the final yards. The one hour mark for 10 kilometres gets closer for Donna.

Olga Le Noury held off Kevin Le Noury for fourth place. 

Kay Coulson in 6th place had a good race finishing in 1.20.30 and backed up her performance in England last week where she set a new personal best time of 1.12.09 over 10 kilometres. The event was the Cecil Gittins Memorial race at Gravesend where she finished as 6th woman.

Back to the local event and Mick Le Sauvage held off Peter Beckerleg by a few minutes with Jayne Le Noury bringing the race to a close.
