SAM_3401Dave leads from start to finish.

Dave Dorey (left) walked to victory in the the fourth annual Sean Pender (right) Trophy handicap race with an untroubled win. Set off first he had his best race for some time with the rest off the field unable to get near him.

Rob Elliott, second across the line, thought momentarily that the win was his as he closed in on Mick Le Sauvage and Jayne Le Noury with 100 metres to go before noticing that Dave was well ahead and metres from the finish. He finished 23 seconds behind the winner with third placed Donna Allan a few seconds behind. Donna recorded another personal best time over the distance, staying relatively close to Elliott after he had made up his 15 seconds handicap within the first lap. 

Stuart Le Noury recorded the fastest time of the day in 6th place with an actual time of 9.34. Phil Lockwood got the better of Kevin Le Noury for seventh, whilst race sponsor Sean Pender brought up the rear. Thanks go to visitor Sean Pender whose name the race is under but also supplies awards to the first three to finish and the fastest male and female walkers on the day.

Lockwood takes the honours

Phil Lockwood held on to win the fourth race in the Bob Wright Handicap Series from the faster finishing Rob Elliott when he crossed the line seven seconds ahead in the 2 kilometres event. The race, held in good conditions on the undulating car free out and back course from the Imperial had the walkers working hard.

Second placed Elliott gained a few points in the final metres as he overtook Peter Beckerleg and Mick Le Sauvage. 

Fifth placed Donna Allan, not quite at the speed of her recent races still broke the Guernsey Age best time held by Julie Lawlor from many years ago with an actual time of 12.27. 

After four races Donna leads the series from Peter Beckerleg, with Stuart Le Noury in third place. The series resumes in 2017 with three more races. Olga Le Noury held off father in law Kevin Le Noury back in seventh and eighth places. Last to finish was Stuart Le Noury with his 11.11 actual time recording the fastest time of the day.

Special mention to Dave Dorey in fifth place. Club stalwart Dave, sometime during this year reached the milestone of 50 years as a competitor in race walking. He competed for Guernsey in the 1970 Commonwealth Games over 20 miles and has won the prestigious Guernsey Church to Church walk . At his best he walked a sub 7 minutes mile.

Osmond Priaulx, Guernsey

imageJason Le Noury repeats his win

Jason Le Noury, the last but one walker to leave the start line in the Sean Pender handicap walk over 2,000 metres made light work of those in front of him as he strode to victory. As last year when he won the second edition of this event , he moved into the lead with time to spare to finish eight seconds up on Phil Lockwood.

Whilst Jason recorded the fastest actual time of the day with his 9.24, Lockwood was showing a return to form with his 11.02. In third place Rob Elliott closed slightly on Lockwood who had started thirty seconds before him to record a satisfying 10.46.

Jayne Le Noury in fourth place, just held off Marie Macdonald to finish as first woman in the race. Marie with her 13.07 actual time being the fastest woman on the day. Sean Pender, who donated the trophy, made the trip to Guernsey, finishing in sixth place just ahead of locals Kevin Le Noury and Dave Dorey. Stuart Le Noury and Olga Sinkevica, the last two to finish had been short of training after a recent holiday and were both down on their expected times.

The clubs thanks go to Sean Pender who not only donated the trophy but awarded sports vouchers to both Jason and Jayne Le Noury, as first man and first woman to finish.


The next walk is on Sunday May 22nd at 8.30 am. The race is over 10 miles from Pleinmont to Lancresse and is the fourth race in the Heritage Championships.
