Bob Wright Handicap Series Race 5

5 kilometres road walk

North Side, Vale, Guernsey

Personal Best for race winner

Race winner Kevin Allan, set off first in the fifth race of the Bob Wright Handicap Series, crossed the line in a new personal best time of 37.52, removing around two minutes off his previous time. Over a minute behind in the handicapped race was Stuart Le Noury who only just failed to walk through the field from his position of back marker with an actual time of 26.11.

The race, held on the two lap course around Vale Castle had walkers brought to an almost standstill for some of the route, affecting some more than others. Kevin Le Noury in third seemed to deny the conditions with a good walk, holding off Phil Lockwood who was competing for the first time since August. Two women had good races with 5th placed Jayne Le Noury up on her last race and 7th placed Wendy Wilson very close to her recent personal best time. Sandwiched between these two was Peter Beckerleg.

Kay Coulson held off the faster finishing Rob Elliott and Donna Allan. Rob having made up the 45 seconds handicap on Donna making the most of the head on windy conditions which he could see was blowing Donna around. The helpful wind in the final straight enabling him to push open past Donna in the final metres. Evergreens Mick Le Sauvage and Dave Dorey bringing up the rear of a good sized local field.

After five races in the Bob Wright Series and with two to go there is still everything to walk for. With the two lowest scores disregarded we have 7 walkers separated by only four points.

Three minute personal best for Wendy Wilson

Newcomer Wendy Wilson removed three minutes from her personal best time set a few weeks ago as she finished in 5th place in 36.32. A mixed morning with a bit of wind, rain and the sun saw the small field walk the five lap course unaffected by the nights storms apart from a few twigs strewn around.

Rob Elliott, walking slightly faster than his last race secured the win in 30.27, opening up an ever increasing gap on second home Donna Allan. Peter Beckerleg finished third just outside 35 minutes with MIck Le Sauvage a further minute back. Dave Dorey brought the field home in just under 41 minutes.

Personal Best Equalled

Leading woman Donna Allan over the longer distance walked on Sunday, equalled her recent personal best time of 1 hour 3 minutes and 13 seconds in her latest outing over 10 kilometres. On a cold and windy morning over the near seven lap course at Les Amarreurs she set off cautiously going through the 2,500 metres point in 16.15 before knocking out a succession of ever faster 1500 metres laps, from 9.42, 9.36, 9.25, 9.08 to a finishing 9.07.

Stuart Le Noury, contesting the longer distance had his best race for a while finishing in 52 minutes dead. His split times after the opening 2,500 metres of 13.04 were 7.56, 7.56, 7.56 down to 7.41 and 7.27. 

Phil Lockwood managed only 5,500 metres before his back problem forced him to retire.

In the 5 kilometres race, Kevin Le Noury led home Peter Beckerleg with a time of 33.39. Third home and first woman was Olga Le Noury in 34.51. Mick Le Sauvage, Jayne Le Noury and Dave Dorey completed the line up.

Personal best for race winner 

Donna Allan, who has improved rapidly since her first race last September, surpassed all expectations as she broke 30 minutes and removed a huge amount of time off her previous best of 34.14. Set off with Phil Lockwood on handicap, she soon moved ahead of him and started to make inroads on those set off in front of her. Hitting the front with still plenty of the race left she crossed the line in an actual time of 29.53. This time was a new age best time for Guernsey, beating that set by Jenny Elliott some years ago.

Second home, also with a performance better than expected was Peter Beckerleg in an actual time of 33.30. A close finish for third was won by Rob Elliott who had to find a sprint to overcome Phil Lockwood. Lockwoods glance behind leading him to try to hold off his rival with his own short lived final effort.

Second woman to finish was Jayne Le Noury, holding off Mick Le Sauvage for fifth place. 

Marie Macdonald had a good race overtaking Kay Coulson and Dave Dorey. After five races in the series and with two to go Donna Allan and Peter Beckerleg are in the first two positions but with a lot still to walk for.

1 Donna Allan (W40) 35.38 (watch time) / 5.45 (handicap) / 29.53

2 Peter Beckerleg (M55) 36.15 / 2.45 / 33.30

From last to first

Stuart Le Noury, carrying the heaviest handicap time, walked through the field to win the first race in the Bob Wright Handicap Series held over 5 kilometres at Saumarez Park.

The series is now into its 13th annual edition and finishes next February after seven walks.

With his best performance for a while at this distance he crossed the line in an actual time of 25.32, almost half a minute ahead of second man home Peter Beckerleg. Newcomer and first woman to finish was Donna Allan in 34.14, finishing just ahead of last years series winner Mick Le Sauvage.

In fifth place was Dave Dorey twenty seconds behind holding off Olga Le Noury, followed closely by Kay Coulson. There was almost a minutes gap then to Rob Elliott and Phil Lockwood, both walking well below there best.

Jayne Le Noury and Marie Macdonald brought up the rear of the field, gaining themselves a few points which could still be quite handy come the end of the competition.

Regular walker Phil Lockwoods son Ellis walked in an Under 11 Development walk over 1250 metres finishing in 10.01 and looking good for a young walker who has only just started the event.

Championship leaders continue to increase leads.

Stuart Le Noury and Olga Sinkevica both increased their leads in the Sarnia Walking Clubs Heritage Championships in the latest race over 5 kilometres. Circumstances dictated that this championship was agreeably reduced from the original 20 kms distance.

Stuart Le Noury easily won the mens section in 28.12 from Phil Lockwood, whilst Olga was dominant in the women action in 34.02. Second across the line was Kay Coulson who continued her recent form with a new personal best time of 35.19, removing 43 seconds from that time set recently.

Third man home Kevin Le Noury only just got the better of Olga, with Peter Beckerleg a further ten seconds adrift . This was a good performance for Peter, giving him second place in the handicap section of the race. His next race will be a milestone in his relatively short race walking career as he will toe the line for the 100th time.

Next home was Mick Le Sauvage walking to form as was Jayne Le Noury and Dave Dorey.

Phil Lockwood, still walking in some discomfort, walked the Guernsey Dairy Milk Run half marathon the weekend before in 2.20.45.


Stuart Le Noury ran the event, whilst past member Carl Thomson decided to run for charity by running four consecutive half marathons for a distance of 52 miles, with the official one being the last one. The last was raced in 1.51.06.

The first marathon was finished in 3 hours 47 mins. He broke his target of 8 hours by 25 minutes finishing in 7 hours 35.

The next race is on Sunday July 3rd at Footes Lane. The event is a one hour track race at 8.30 am. Details from Jayne Le Noury
