Canaccord Genuity Philadelphia Team Race

One mile handicap road walk

Les Amarreurs, Guernsey

Third Philadelphia win in a row for Elliott

For the third year in a row Rob Elliott was part of the winning team in the Canaccord Genuity Philadelphia one mile handicap road walk. On this occasion he was paired with Dave Dorey, who finished in second place in the handicapped walk, backed up with Elliotts 8.00 time, which was his best for many a year.

This time broke the 8.12 that Terry Bates set back in 2006 as an M55

Kay Coulson, who seems to relish this race, smashed her old personal best time set in this race last year and finished in first place for the third year with an actual time of 10.37, taking 41 seconds off her previous best time. Good walks by Dorey and Kevin Le Noury gave them the second and third places individually. In Doreys case helping to secure the team win over Le Noury and team mate Olga Sinkevica.

The fastest time of the day was by Stuart Le Noury in 7.24, whilst Olga Sinkevica recorded the fastest womens time  with 9.58.

The next walk is on Sunday March 29th from Albecq to North Side at 9.30 am. The distance is 7 miles for annual Chilcott Cup. Details from Jayne Le Noury lenouryjedburgh@cwgsy.net

50th Anniversary Canaccord Genuity 5 miles road walk

Lancresse to North Beach

The Sarnia Walking Club celebrated the 50th anniversary of its first ever race with a 5 miles road walk from Lancresse to North Beach, over the same distance as the first walk. In good conditions with a slight breeze along the seafront finish, the race was dominated by the Le Noury brothers who headed the field throughout, with elder brother Stuart taking the win in 41.42, 45 seconds ahead of Jason. Third man home and a further three minutes behind was Rob Elliott in 45.26 and removing two minutes from the old Guernsey age best time.

Next home was Phil Lockwood in just under 50 minutes, whilst Kevin Le Noury was two minutes too good for the leading woman.Peter Beckerleg held off the second woman home as he crossed the line in 56.09 some 11 seconds up on Marie Macdonald who held off Mick Le Sauvage by two seconds. Dave Dorey, finishing in 58.50 can point to a sub 39 minutes time set in his prime many years ago.

The leading woman was Olga Sinkevica who walked well to finish in 54.33, ahead of Marie Macdonald 56.20 and Jayne Le Noury 57.26. The leading womens times now rank 6th and 7th in the Guernsey all time lists, just behind the Jayne Le Nourys 5th place set back in 1983. Kay Coulson the fourth woman home had a good race to finish just outside the hour barrier.

A good field of 14 walkers took part with last walker home Allan Harris making a comeback for the event after a few years absence and followed home another walker on the comeback trail in Alan Roger who walked 63.10.

All finishers received a glass paperweight to mark the occasion, courtesy of the race sponsors Canaccord Genuity Wealth Management.

Although there was nobody present from the first event, a man who walked the fixture a year later took part. Evergreen Mick Le Sauvage completing the distance this time 56.22.

Pasted in below is a story of the 5 miles event in Guernsey written in 2011.

The next walk is on Sunday March 15th at Delancey Park at 9.00 am. The distance is 10 kilometres and is the second walk in the club championships. Details from Jayne Le Noury lenouryjedburgh@cwgsy.net.

5 Miles Past

Filed under: 5 miles, Uncategorized — sarnia @ 10:58 pm Edit This

Following a comment that our newer members would like to have a go at the 5 miles distance which was popular in the UK and Guernsey in the 1960`s and through to the 1990`s, I have reproduced the Guernsey mens and womens ranking lists below plus an insight into some of the 5 miles races of the past.

The first Guernsey 5 miles walk that I have found in the local papers, took place in May 1942, finishing at Beau Sejour, which would have given the walkers a climb at the end of the event whichever route they took. Nine entered and Norman Froome took the honours by 20 yards from Church to Church Champion Stan Smith, with H Le Marquand “inches” behind.

On to 1963 and the GIAAC held their first annual GIAAC 5 miles walk which was won by Graham Mann in 45.29. The following year Len Duquemin improved the record to 42.30 in an event held in early April. Another race a few weeks later saw John Moullin win in 43.11. The fastest lady was Winona Robert in 58.07.

This was to be the final GIAAC 5 miles walk as soon afterwards the walking section broke away to form the current Sarnia Walking Club. A 5 miles walk was the first event held by the SWC in March 1965. The course in those days started at Lancresse (near the current Keyprice) and followed the coast road (via Grandes Maison Road) to finish at the “BEA offices” (almost at zebra crossing in final straight of Church finish).

Len Duquemin took the honours in 41.22, followed by John Moullin 42.40 and the young John Brouard (almost 17 yrs old) in 42.41. Leading lady was multiple Church to Church walk winner Mrs J H (Winona) Robert in 56.22 followed by Miss Shirley Jefferies in 56.23.

In April 1967, the top locals took on Scottish walker Bill Sutherland at the distance. Bill, who went on to win the bronze medal in the 1970 Commonwealth Games 20 miles walk, had set a new allcomers record over 7 miles the previous year when he recorded 50.31.

Locals were in no mood for a repeat and Len Duquemin  (pictured in England, representing SWC) easily won in 36.40 for a new Island record, beating Sutherland by over a minute (37.45). Youngsters Dave Chalker and John Brouard recorded 41.01 and 41.04 respectively.

Duquemins time was to stand for many years as an allcomers best, but the womens best was demolished in 1975 when leading French walker Jacqueline Delassaux (pictured right in Europe) recorded 40.04 on the Lancresse to White Rock course, finishing second to local Champion Mick Elliott.

In 1969 Len Duquemin recorded 36.18 at Lambeth, England to set a new Island best time. This time survived as a record until Carl Thomson removed two seconds off it in 1991. (I remember this walk well as Carl came storming past me mid race after he had started well behind me in the handicapped event).

For record purposes the times only from an actual 5 miles event are considered, but there has been a better en route time. Rob Elliott (pictured walking in GIAAC run)with his best recorded time of 36.25 in the National 10 miles Championships in 1980, would have walked a minute quicker in his 10 kilometres Island Record performance.

The womens best time for a Guernsey walker still stands to Jenny Elliott who walked 48.18 in 1999. Current walkers Rose Druckes, Jayne Le Noury and Carol Bates feature in the top 10 performances.

Below is the annual report for the Sarnia Walking Club for 2014

Sarnia Walking Club

2014 Report

The year 2014 marked the clubs 50th anniversary since its formation in December 1964. The occasion was marked by a breakfast at the Half Moon cafe after the annual Val des Terres Hill Climb, complete with birthday cake, supplied by Dave Dorey.

The club held the usual races throughout the year with 12 walkers scoring in the Heritage Club Championships and 19 in the Bob Wright Handicap Series which is open to all to compete in. Both these numbers were slightly down on the year before.

We have had at least six new walkers come into our races during the year and racing more than a couple of times, excluding those from the Church to Church entries.

Interestingly, most of these have been woman and one now hopes for some good races between them in 2015.

The Bob Wright Series continues to attract “non members” to the handicapped races, with an “unattached” walker taking the title this year through Karen Farman.

Once again, Jayne and Stuart Le Noury won the Heritage club championships with Kevin Le Noury taking the handicapped section.

The traditional club events continued like the Eric Waldron, Chilcott Cup, Rocquaine Regatta, Hill Climb and the team events with the Philadelphia, Graham Mann and Peter Kendal trophies

An additional trophy this year was the Sean Pender Trophy donated by the then Southern RWA President and regular visitor Sean Pender. The race was a handicapped 2,000 metres walk open to all and hopefully in future drawing in newcomers. It worked this year with newcomer Marie Macdonald taking first place.

The highlight of our year is the Church to Church walk which again attracted overseas walkers and a field of 25 walkers, as well as some overseas officials and spectators. In addition to this 17 walkers took part in the 3 kilometres warm up race the same weekend.

Past glories for the club walkers were relived during the year with Len Duquemin featuring in a Guernsey Press article on his 1970 Commonwealth Games 6th place.

Rob Elliott went to a luncheon in London to celebrate the home countries representatives over the years in the Commonwealth Games, with Guernsey and Sarnia Walking Club getting mentioned in some of the speeches.

The club were represented in running events throughout the year with some members opting to run and others walking. Jason Le Noury took part in the longest as he completed the London Marathon

The club held a coaching weekend during the year with Chris Hobbs from England leading the sessions which involved a race on the Friday evening and track session and exercises and warm up / downs on the Sunday. An informative weekend for those involved.

Club member Terry Bates continues to walk in the Isle of Man as well as on his visits back to the island.

I end this report on a sad note as 2014 marked the passing away of past member Dave Johnson, a stalwart walker for thirty years.
