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.

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.

After 2 kilometres a group of 5 had broken away, Scamell, Robinson and Sheppard from Newham and locals Rob Elliott and Andy Le Heron. At half way Scamell and Robinson were battling for first place with Sheppard 11 seconds behind. Elliott was walking steadily a further 5 seconds down and had a chance of splitting the leading trio. When all scorers had gone past the 5 kms point the team scores were level. Rob Elliott moved into third in the sixth kilometre, but team mate Steven Kendal retired, leaving the team match in the balance with Newham eventually taking the win by three points.
