Elliott and Allan open Championships with a win.

Rob Elliott opened up the Sarnia Walking Club 2019 Championship with a winning 28.49 clocking over 5 kilometres, ahead of second placed and leading woman Donna Allan with 30.58. Elliott, celebrating his birthday and moving up into the M60 age group, surprised himself with his best time for three years and in the process broke the Guernsey age best time set by Terry Bates back in 2011. A seven minute dead time for the first of the four laps gave him a good start which was followed by laps of 7.13, 7.19 and 7.17.

Second and third places were taken by walkers who have entered marathons in the next few months, second placed Donna in London and third placed Phil Lockwood in Brighton. Fourth place went to Kevin Le Noury ahead of Kay Coulson who claimed the handicap win. Next home was Mick Le Sauvage , one race away from his 8,000 miles milestone with Dave Dorey bringing home the field. 

Kevin Allan and Jayne Le Noury both succumbed to injuries and completed around half the distance.

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.

Donna Allan first home

Donna Allan and Phil Lockwood took the honours in the second race of the clubs Championships. First overall was Donna Allan in 32.17, ahead of Lockwoods 33.26. Expected winner of the mens section, perhaps mindful of the upcoming London marathon walked to third place in the mens section, behind father Kevin.

Two minutes down on the leading woman was Olga Le Noury, ahead of Jayne Le Noury in third.

The club are sad to report the recent passing of past treasurer Hazel Mann in her 89th year. Hazel and her late husband Austin were treasurer and secretary of the Sarnia Walking Club for many years.
