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.

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.

Saumarez Park, Guernsey

Close finish in Race One

Peter Beckerleg opened up the Bob Wright handicap series with a narrow win from a fast finishing young Alex Sinkevics. Alex, with only a handful of races behind him had started the walk with the winner on handicap and had opened up a lead on him by nine seconds at the halfway point. Slowing down early in the second half Alex was soon caught and passed by Beckerleg, who opened up a lead in the final lap over not only Alex, but the rest of the field.

Coming into the long final straight it looked as though there would be no doubt as to who would finish first as he had a good 25 metres lead over Le Sauvage and Sinkevics. Sinkevics then made an attempt to close the gap but ran out of road as he closed fast to finish a stride behind at the finish. His effort at the end gave him a negative split time of 17.02 after a first half of 17.16. His effort gave him a new personal best time of 34.18, well ahead of his previous time of 35.00.

Peter went through half way in 17.25 before a strong 16.52 second half.

Third place went to Mick Le Sauvage, with first woman to finish Marie Macdonald in fourth place and recording the fastest womans time of the day, ahead of Olga Sinkevica with an actual time of 34.42. Fastest time of the day was set by Stuart Le Noury 28.49, closely followed by Phil Lockwood with 29.01. Phil looked good throughout the race and also finished the second half quicker than the first.

The next race is on Sunday October 18th at Delancey Park. It is the second walk in the series over 10 kilometres. Note earlier start time than on fixture list. Start is now at 9.00am.
