Pleinmont to Lancresse, Guernsey

Le Noury increases Championship lead

Stuart Le Noury had an easy win in the Sarnia Walking Clubs latest race in the Heritage Group Championships over a distance of 10 miles. On the point to point course from Pleinmont to Lancresse he shrugged off the wet conditions to cross the line in 1.32.10, well ahead of second man home Kevin Le Noury, after his nearest challenger Phil Lockwood had to pull out around half way with an injury.

A close race in the womens section resulted in a win for Olga Sinkevica in 1.55.24, ahead of Marie Macdonald in 1.57.03. Both raced to new personal best times with Marie knocking over 10 minutes off her last time. Close behind and close to her best was Jayne Le Noury in 1.58.07. She found herself leapfrogged by the two in front in the Guernsey All-time lists.

Alex Sinkevics, in his first race at the distance finished close behind his mother Olga, with experienced walker Mick Le Sauvage just dipping under the 2 hours barrier.

The next race is on Sunday May 29th at Les Amarreurs at 9.00 am. It is the fifth race in the championship series over a distance of 3 kilometres.

Easy wins for defending Champions
 
There were easy wins for the defending Heritage Champions in the fourth race of the Championship series. Mens race winner Stuart Le Noury, still suffering with a hip problem after his recent debut marathon, led from the start to cross the line in 88.38, well ahead of second walker home Phil Lockwood.
 
Rob Elliott took third place but unhappy with his performance after recent results. Kevin Le Noury, himself with injury problem took fourth spot ahead of evergreen Mick Le Sauvage and Peter Beckerleg. Peter was walking in his first event longer than 7 miles and still finds himsef in the lead overall in the Jubilee Handicap section held in conjunction with the Championships.
 
With the cold and wet conditions not helping on the route around the coast from Pleinmont to Lancresse it did not stop Womens Champion Jayne Le Noury get close to her best ever time set last year as she won the womens race from Rose Druckes and Kay Coulson. Although not setting a personal best, Rose improved on her own Guernsey age best time set last year by almost four minutes.
 
The next event is on Sunday May 26th over 3 kilometres at Les Amarreurs. Start time is 9.30 am. It is the 5th race in the Championships. In conjunction with the Get Active Fortnight the club will also hold an introduction to race / power walking at the same time.

10 miles road walk
Pleinmont to Lancresse
 
Jayne Le Noury  (pictured) walked to a new personal best time in the 10 miles road walk held from Pleinmont to Lancresse. In hot conditions she crossed the line ahead of Rose Druckes in a time of 1.57.23, in the womens championship, fifteen seconds better than her previous time.
Second home, Rose Druckes removed minutes off her recent age best with a 2.10.46 clocking.
 
Phil Lockwood was first home in the mens championship in 1.34.26, walking fairly even 5 mile splits after passing half way in just under 47 minutes. He held a two minutes lead over Terry Bates at this point, who walked well to record 1.39.24, a new Guernsey age best and only a minute outside of the allcomers M60 best, set many years ago by Ray Switzer on the same course. Kevin Le Noury, getting the better of wife Jayne, held on to record 1.57.02 for third place. Jaynes even paced walk had seen her record a faster second half and close the gap by around a minute.
 
Rob Elliott, after a recent spell of good races, succumbed to minor injury  after only a few minutes of walking. Undecided until late on whether to try out his leg after hobbling home after a recent training spin, he made the wrong choice when giving it a go! Likewise Dave Dorey pulled out at halfway with a leg problem.
 
Mick Le Sauvage walked the second half of the race from Albecq to Lancresse, finishing in 58.10 for 5 miles.
 
Terry Bates holds a good lead in the Jubilee Handicap Championships with another handicap win today. He leads the series with Phil Lockwood and Kevin Le Noury only a point apart in second place.
 
The next event is on Sunday May 20th at 11.00 am at Delancey Park, where the  club are holding an introductory session to race walking in conjunction with the Guernsey Sports Commission and the Generali Get Active Fortnight. Details from Jayne Le Noury at lenouryjedburgh@cwgsy.net . The next race is on Friday May 25th at Les Amarreurs over a distance of 2 kilometres at 6.30 pm. All are welcome.

Castleisland RWC in Guernsey in 1990`s

Filed under: 10 miles, 20kms, 3 kilometres, church to church, Uncategorized — sarnia @ 1:06 pm

Castleisland RWC by Rob Elliott

In response to a recent comment from Joseph Malone on the Church to Church website, I was prompted to go back in time to the early 1990`s (results here) when walkers from Eire and the Castleisland RWC took part in Guernsey walks.

The SWC received a phonecall from a walker from that club indicating they would be over for the Church to Church walk. A lot of information as to names may have been lost in the telephone conversation with a broad Irish accent talking to  a Guernsey one!

In these pre internet days I had looked through old athletics magazines etc to find any Irish walkers names to see what sort of competition would arrive.

Church walk morning arrived and two Castleisland walkers were at the start.

Patrick Murphy (No 44 in photo above) and James O`Sullivan were duly introduced and then we found out that Pat was of International standard with a sub 90 minutes 20 kms to his name as well as 4 hours 23 in his debut walk at 50 kms. Straight away we knew he was the favourite for the Church to Church 1993!

Pat Murphy walked strongly and romped home an easy winner in 2.33.00 for the 19.4 miles course, going through the 10 miles point in 78 minutes to go to third in the all time rankings for the event. Colin Bradley was an isolated second some 17 minutes behind. Local walker Rob Elliott was fourth in 3.08.48, but held on to his second place in the all time rankings, with his best time set eleven years earlier.

A year later and John Cox from Castleisland (in photo finishing Church to Church) joined the two walkers from the year before. 

They competed three times whilst in the island. Once over 10 miles the Sunday before the Church to Church, a 3 kms road walk on the Friday before the Church and the Church itself.

But they made things difficult for themselves. The evening before the 10 miles and a phone call from them to say they were on the way to Guernsey fromFranceand no idea when they would arrive!

Problem. The race was due to start at 10 am.

Problem. There were two boats due in to the island fromFrance early to mid morning and we had no idea as to which one they were on!

Problem solved. I went to the harbour to wait for the arrival of the first boat and hope they were on it. As luck would have it they were and we could get straight to the start which had been put back an hour in anticipation of their arrival. In this pre mobile time, I was communicating with club members some seven miles away at the start via a phone box at the harbour and one almost on the start line!

A quick drive to the start, putting on numbers and racing kit whilst in the car, saw them ready to roll.

There was no time for warm ups as other walkers had already been kept waiting at the start, so 25 minutes after arriving they and the rest of the walkers were on their way walking from Imperial Hotel to Lancresse.

Pat Murphy easily won in 78.19 from Guernseywalker Carl Thomson in 80.53. John Cox walked 92.17 and James O`Sullivan 100.53.

Once settled in Guernseyand staying within a mile of the 3 kilometres course, things were a little bit more relaxed for their second race.

Pat Murphy blasted out an 11.45 time for the two lap course, with John Cox recording 15.33 and James O`Sullivan 16.34.

Murphy repeated his Church success of the year before finishing in 2.34.25, John Cox finished 8th in 3.17.34 and James O`Sullivan 9th in 3.19.12.

Six walkers broke the three hours barrier, Murphy winning from Colin Bradley 2.49.28, Carl Thomson (Guernsey) 2.52.59, Rob Elliott (Guernsey) 2.53.52, Steve Allwood 2.59.12 and John Paddick 2.59.47.

Pat Murphy walked to his third victory in 1995, slowing down to 2.39.25 with team mate Joe Malone, in his only walk on Guernsey to date in fifth place in 3.18.27. Local Guernseywalker Rob Elliott was second in 2.49.11.

Pat Murphy raced to his fourth victory in 1999 on a stiflingly hot day in 2.56.23.

With four wins out of four starts Pat Murphy is one of the most successful ever Church to Church walk competitors and even to date has the 4th fastest time  as well as three performances in the Top 12 times.

Added to his other wins at 10 miles and 3 kms he also won a local 20 kms walk in 101.44 in 1997, walking in borrowed kit and shoes after his had been lost en route to the island!

Never a dull moment with the likeable walkers from Castleisland RWC.

Le Noury smashes personal best
 
Stuart Le Noury smashed his personal best time for 10 miles  by over four and a half minutes, when he dominated the small field of walkers competing from Albecq to the White Rock. In almost ideal winter conditions he was on his own from the start going through the half way point in 39.23. This time in itself was over two and a half minutes up on his best for a 5 miles walk. Inevitably slowing in the second half he crossed the line in 81.05, moving from 21st to 10th in the Guernsey All Time list.
Phil Lockwood walked to an easy second place, but well behind the winner. Rob Elliott, in third, who heads the All Time list, reproduced below, walked almost identical halfs to finish a further five minutes behind.
In the accompanying 5 miles walk, backmarker Kay Coulson had reason to be happy as she clipped seventeen seconds from her previous best. Winner of the 5 miles was Dave Dorey in just over an hour.
The next event is on Sunday January 29th at Delancey Park at 11.00 am. The event is in conjunction with the M & S sponsored Weight Wise Week organised by the Guernsey Sports Commision, in which women only get the chance to try out new sports. A free informal introduction to race walking / power walking is on offer with a chance to have a short race afterwards. Details from Jayne Le Noury, tel 246865.

Garnet 1967 10 miles Champions

Filed under: 10 miles, John Moullin, Len Duquemin — sarnia @ 9:38 pm

No race to report on this weekend, so a lookback to February 1967 and the “Garnet Cup 10 miles Champions”  from the Sarnia Walking Club. The race, promoted as a Southern Area 10 mile road walk, was for teams, who could not use international walkers in the event.

A strong Guernsey (SWC) team went to England and duly won the team prize and had two walkers in the first three individualy. Len Duquemin won in 77.55 with John Moullin third in 81.05. These two went on to represent Guernsey in future Commonwealth Games, as did other members of the Garnet 1967 team, namely Dave Dorey and Rob Waterman. Dace Dorey is still walking and is the current SWC President.

Yorkshire Guernsey Championship Race 5
10 miles
Pleinmont to Lancresse, Guernsey
 
Best times for winning Le Nourys
 
Stuart Le Noury increased his lead in the Yorkshire Guernsey Championships with a winning time of 85.42 for the 10 miles walk from Pleinmont to Lancresse. This improved his old best time set earlier this year by three and a half minutes. He was out on his own for all of the race, walked in drizzly conditions. His 85.42 pushes him up the Guernsey All Time list reproduced below. Well down in second place was Phil Lockwood in 93.55, with Kevin Le Noury moving into third place after 5 miles when Rob Elliott pulled out with hamstring problems. A disappointed Elliott (pictured in better days in National 10 miles in 1982, number 248), who has put in his best training for some time over recent months, was walking fluently when his old injury flared up again. Mick Le Sauvage claimed a new Guernsey Age Best time as he crossed the line in just over two hours.
Jayne Le Noury continues to improve with age as she again removed a few seconds from her personal best time, beating Rose Druckes into second place. The next walk is on Friday June 10th at 6.30 pm at Footes Lane. It will be the sixth race in the Championship over a distance of 3,000 metres. All are welcome to compete.

Sunday January 23rd 2011
 
For the first time in many years the Sarnia Walking Club held a 10 miles event from Albecq to the White Rock. In cold and windy conditions, Stuart Le Noury (pictured coming up to 9 miles) took the lead from the start, closely followed by Phil Lockwood. At the two miles point Le Noury held a fifty yards lead, going through in 17.30. At the half way point at Lancresse he had increased his lead to 46 seconds as the clock showed 44.17 to Lockwoods 45.01. The lead was further increased over the next few miles, until Phil Lockwood worked hard along the seafront in the final few miles to close the gap agian, but not by enough as Stuart Le Noury finished in 89.11. Phil took second place a further 33 seconds behind in 89.44.
Phil removed two and a half minutes off his previous best time set a few years ago in the National 10 miles Championships. Le Noury in his first actual 10 miles event surpassing his best time at the slightly shorter 15 kilometres distance by a good few minutes.
Well down in third place was evergreen walker Kevin Le Noury, who can draw consolation that his best time set over thirty years ago, is a few seconds quicker than Lockwoods finishing time today.
There was a close race for first place in the womens walk as Jayne Le Noury outsprinted Jane Rowlinson by a few strides. Jayne Le Noury set off at her usual steady pace to find herself a minute behind Jane Rowlinson at two miles. By halfway the gap had reduced to half a minute as Jane Rowlinson went past in 58.32. Over the next few miles the two were getting closer and closer until they were shoulder to shoulder. The two were locked together for much of the final miles until a determined sprint saw Le Noury over the line first in 1.57.59, two minutes better than her previous best time set back in 1996.
Two walkers raced the last 5 miles of the course, with Carol Bates winning in 58.20. Rose Druckes was not far behind with a time of 59.38, which beats her old Guernsey age best time.
The next walk is on Sunday February 6th at Delancey Park. The event is the 6th race in the Bob Wright Handicap series over 10 kilometres, starting at 9.30 am. Futher details from Jayne Le Noury, tel 246865.

 New best time in National Championship

Sarnia Walking Club`s (team photo left Jason, Kevin and Phil) Jason Le Noury came away happy from the Race Walking Association National 10 miles Championship held at Lee Valley near Enfield. He crossed the line in 9th place in 85.02, clipping two seconds off his personal best time set in the same event last year. Having started the race short of training, due to recent injuries, he started off steadily, then got through a patch of sore shins before moving up through the field. A mid race battle with Trevor Jones of Steyning, saw them both trying hard to close the gap on walkers just in front of them, before Jason lost ground in the final one mile lap. Jason, thinking in kilometres rather than miles, passed the 10 kilometres point in slightly under 52 minutes, his best time at that distance for a good few months.
Phil Lockwood, finished the race in 17th position in 96.16. An early warning seemed to unsettle him a little but he stuck to the task in hand and despite looking tired for much of the latter half of the race, held his position well. With Carl Thomson now retired and Rob Elliott entered but not starting due to a recurring hamstring problem, the Sarnia Walking Club would be unlikely to emulate last years team bronze. Stalwart Kevin Le Noury, only lasted 7 miles before suffering the “red disc” from the judge for the first time in his career.
The race winner, in a time of 73.49, was Darryl Stone of Steyning beating Scott Davis of Ilford by 21 seconds. Third place went to Tommy Taylor of Birchfield in 75.08.

Third Team Place for Sarnia Walking Club Trio
trionat10-2
 
Carl Thomson, Jason Le Noury and Phil Lockwood representing the Sarnia Walking Club took third place in the team placings in the National 10 miles Road Walking Championships, held at Picketts Lock, England.
Carl Thomson came home in 6th place in 78.30, taking 18 seconds off his previous best time. He led the Sarnia team home as Steyning AC walkers packed behind him, to give them the Team Championship.
In their first National Championships, Jason Le Noury crossed the line in 85.04 in 11th place with Phil Lockwood 17th in 92.12.img_3238 (below)
Both walkers coming through in the second half of the race. Stalwart Kevin Le Noury finished 35th in 109.26.
Thomson`s next off island event is next month where he takes part in the 20 kms walk in Lugano, Switzerland. He will be hoping to improve on his 99.10 Personal Best time and move closer to the 93 minutes required to have a chance of selection for Guernsey for the 2010 Commonwealth Games.
