Stuart Le Noury raced to his eighth Eric Waldron title over the two miles track distance with an easy win in the latest race. Dominating from the start he lapped the field to finish in 15.23, only four seconds behind his personal best time set a few years ago. Second home was Rob Elliott, himself a multiple winner of this event many years back. 

Third place went to Donna Allan in 19.01, adding a new Guernsey age best to her recent collection. The time was the third fastest by a local woman, behind times set by Jenny Elliott and sister Kathryn Tostevin in this now rarely walked distance.

Youngest walker Ellis Lockwood made a good effort in the closing laps to close down Kay Coulson, with Coulson only just holding on by a second.

Filed under: 2 miles, 7 miles, Chilcott Cup, Eric Waldron — sarnia @ 7:10 pm

cic logo blue (high Res)1The Sarnia Walking Club are pleased to announce that Channel Island Ceramics are to sponsor two of the oldest events on our calendar in 2014, namely the Eric Waldron 2 miles track walk and the Chilcott Cup 7 miles road walk.

The trophies both date back to the 1960`s and were first donated to the Guernsey Island Amateur Athletic Club. They were then passed on to the Sarnia Walking Club.

The Eric Waldron Trophy was introduced in 1964 and first won by Len Duquemin in 16.09.1, just ahead of John Moullin who was given the same time. The first events were held on the grass track at Cambridge Park, with Duquemin improving his time to 14.46.5 in 1966, which until 2009 was the Guernsey Allcomers Record for a 2 miles track walk, until Carl Thomson walked 14.40.4.

The event moved to the roads after that from 1969 to 2002. From 2003 the race has moved back to a track walk for most years to 2013.

Len Duquemin`s track time has frequently been surpassed with winning times on the road. Walker’s fastest winning times in this race are, Rob Waterman 14.30 in 1969, Andy Le Heron 14.15 in 1972, Mick Elliott 14.33 in 1974, Rob Elliott 13.58 in 1981, Mark Elliott 13.56 in 1985, Carl Thomson 14.02 in 1990.

The Chilcott & Sons Ltd Trophy was first walked for in 1963 and won by T Le Gallez. John Moullin took the honours a year later just breaking the hour barrier. Roy Brouard was awarded the Trophy in 1965 in a handicapped 7 miles walk.

After a gap of six years the Trophy was reintroduced, with Moullin winning in 1971 in 54.35. Rob Waterman went even quicker a year later with a 53.58 winning time.

Mick Elliott won the Trophy 5 times between 1973 and 1981, a 55.19 being his fastest time. His son Robert has won the race 16 times, with a best of 51.35, which is still a Guernsey record on the Houmet to White Rock course. Carl Thomson has 6 wins to his name, with a fastest time of 51.56 on the Albecq to North Side course.

Stuart Le Noury retained the Office Solutions sponsored walk for the Eric Waldron Trophy when easily taking victory in a new personal best 2 miles time of 15.22 on the road at Les Amarreurs.  Ideal conditions helped all the walkers in the first evening race of the year. An ankle injury probably cost Le Noury removing more time, but was good enough to leave second man home trailing by 41 seconds. Jason Le Noury was second home in his first race for some time, with Phil Lockwood taking third place.
Past winner Rob Elliott had a good race finishing not too far behind Lockwood and breaking the Guernsey age group best time. Jayne Le Noury was the first woman home in 21.41, which was her best for five years.
The next walk is on Sunday April 15th at 9.30 am. The walk is from Albecq to North Side, a distance of seven miles and is for the Office Solutions Chilcott Cup. All are welcome to compete. Details from Jayne Le Noury, tel 246865.

Stuart Le Noury was too fast for defending champion and brother Jason Le Noury in the 2 miles Bedell Cristin sponsored Eric Waldron race. The brothers were together for the first two of eight laps before Stuart started pulling away. By the one mile point he had a lead of seven seconds as he went through the half way in 7.37. Third walker Phil Lockwood was well down in 8.20. The gaps increased in the second half of the race as Stuart crossed the line in an almost identical time that he recorded when winning the event in 2008. The first three were all down on their times set in the same event in 2010. Fourth spot went to Rob Elliott, satisfied with his effort as he tries to get back into shape. Others in the field were strung out with Kevin Le Noury getting the better of Dave Dorey and Mick Le Sauvage. Womens competitor Rose Druckes struggled along at the rear of the field, glad to finish, suffering from a cold.
The next local walk is on Sunday April 10th at Les Amarreurs, starting at 9.30 am. The event is the Philadelphia Cup team race, decided on a one mile handicapped walk. Details from Jayne Le Noury tel 246865.
