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.

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.

Sarnia WC v Newham AC 10 kms Sandy Hook to White Rock, Guernsey

Newham won a close match providing the first two walkers across the line, with Mike Scamell winning by 10 seconds from Geoff Robinson.

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.

Big personal best time for leading woman

Donna Allan (photo) continues to take big steps forward since taking up race walking. In her latest race over 10 kilometres at North Side, held in good conditions after the storms of the previous 12 hours, she crossed the line in 1 hour 3 minutes and 13 seconds to remove almost three and a half minutes off her previous best time. 

A good day for the women saw Olga Le Noury and Jayne Le Noury  both walking quicker than their last race. The winner of the race was Stuart Le Noury, walking well up on his last race to finish in 54.33. He had a clear win from Rob Elliott back in second place.The third man Phil Lockwood was separated by the leading woman and finished fourth overall.

Kevin Le Noury was another to perform above expectations, with a time a couple of minutes up on expected . The other walkers to finish Peter Beckerleg and Mick Le Sauvage walked to form with Marie Macdonald having to record a  “did not finish”.

Stuart Le Noury will race the London marathon next year, taking the place that the Sarnia Walking Club are entitled too as members of “englandathletics”.

On a personal note (Rob Elliott) . Woke up this morning to see this link

It is from the 1982 Commonwealth Games in which I raced 30 kms in 2.24.28. Turned up for this 10 kms race this morning at North Side to find one of the roads closed to cars and pedestrians. So we used the extended course on which the Guernsey walkers used for the trials back then.

Back then I averaged 48.20 for a final 2.25.00 course and Guernsey record. Today I slipped back to 61 minutes!
