Mick Le Sauvage finished in 4th place, with Donna Allan eight seconds behind. Phil Lockwood was a further minute behind with last walker Rob Elliott well behind with a race to forget.

New Personal Best for Womens Champion

Donna Allan, the defending club champion strode to a new personal best time by almost a minute on a near perfect morning for racing. Whilst race winner Stuart Le Noury, not at his best today, was out on his own from the start, Donna was matching the pace set by eventual second man home Rob Elliott for half of the 16 laps course, before moving away over the final 5 kilometres. 

Le Noury, through half way in just under 26 minutes, had already forged a big lead with Donna through in 29.25 and Elliott a few seconds adrift in 29.35. Donna increased her pace to record a negative split time of 29.03 for the latter half as she crossed the line in 58.28. Elliott, whose target for the day was to once again get under the hour, managed the task with a 59.36, his best time for almost four years and having the added bonus of another new Guernsey age best time, deposing Terry Bates of his age best for the second race in a row.

Donnas time is now the official Guernsey Record, although Katrine Thomson recorded quicker in 2008 but not ratified as a record due to insufficient officials on the day.

A close walk for fourth place was won by Phil Lockwood from Kevin Le Noury. At the back of the field Mick Le Sauvage hit a new milestone as he completed 8,000 miles of competitive race walking. Now nearing his 80th birthday, Mick started racing back in 1959 by completing the Guernsey Church to Church walk and has been an almost ever present since the formation of the Sarnia Walking Club. Remarkably, all but a handful of miles have been completed in Guernsey. As he now inevitably slows down he can think back to the days when he could walk the Church to Church in 3 hour 11 minutes, 10 miles in under 90 minutes, 7 miles in under an hour and todays distance in 53.13…..which would have pipped todays winner.

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.

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.

Third woman home Wendy Wilson knocked two minutes off her recent personal best time when finishing 8th overall and third woman in the Heritage Group Sarnia Walking Club Championships.

Both finishing with times quicker than last weeks race on the same course, as did all the finishers who walked both. Walkers were met this week with cold and damp conditions rather than the heat of the week before.

First woman home was Donna Allan, who had the close contention of Phil Lockwood for much of the race. Both walkers feeling the after effects of their recent marathon races. A good walk from Olga Le Noury gave her second place in the womens section, holding off Peter Beckerleg who walked close to his personal best time. Kevin Le Noury finishing not too far behind them. Stalwarts Mick Le Sauvage with 1.15.56 and Jayne Le Noury 1.20.00 closing the race order.

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.
