Stuart wins 7 miles Chilcott Cup

Stuart Le Noury easily broke seven miles in the hour to record another win in the annual Channel Island Ceramics Chilcott Cup. On a clear warm morning he strode out from the start at Albecq and crossed the line at North Side in 58.30.

A close finish for second place was won by the experienced Rob Elliott from relative newcomer Donna Allan. Walking at a faster pace over a similar distance than her recent 10 kilometres personal best, she caught Elliott with half a mile to go and opened up a few seconds gap around the Vale Castle and heading down to the long straight finish at North Side.

A still confident Elliott held the gap for a while before catching and moving away in the final yards. The one hour mark for 10 kilometres gets closer for Donna.

Olga Le Noury held off Kevin Le Noury for fourth place. 

Kay Coulson in 6th place had a good race finishing in 1.20.30 and backed up her performance in England last week where she set a new personal best time of 1.12.09 over 10 kilometres. The event was the Cecil Gittins Memorial race at Gravesend where she finished as 6th woman.

Back to the local event and Mick Le Sauvage held off Peter Beckerleg by a few minutes with Jayne Le Noury bringing the race to a close.

FullSizeRenderPersonal Best for Winner

Stuart Le Noury raced to a new personal best time in the Channel Island Ceramics 7 miles road walk for the annual Chilcott Cup held in windy conditions from Albecq to North Side. Out on his own from the start he crossed the line in 56.37, taking almost a minute from his previous best time. Rob Elliott took second place in 1.02.38 with Phil Lockwood in third.

First woman across the line was Olga Sinkevica with 1.14.55, finishing close to the fourth man home, Kevin Le Noury who had a good walk taking 3 minutes off his last years performance. Peter Beckerleg. Mick Le Sauvage and Kay Coulson also went much quicker than in the last race, whilst the remaining two walkers Jayne Le Noury and Dave Dorey had a close race with Jayne getting home first at the finish.

On a personal note, I, Rob Elliott had a frustrating race despite partially happy to break his 63 minutes pre race target. Walking well until almost the 4 miles point at 7 mph pace, the leg injury flared again and slowed me down for the next mile which was taken easily at near 10 minutes mile pace, before rallying slightly in the last two miles. One day I will last a race!

The next walk is on Friday April 10th at 6.30 pm. The venue is Footes Lane over a distance of 2 miles for the Eric Waldron Trophy. Further information from Jayne Le Noury lenouryjedburgh@cwgsy.net .

Carl Thomson won the Channel Island Ceramics Chilcott Cup over a distance of seven miles, leaving the Le Noury brothers back in second and third place. Out on his own from the start at Albecq to the finish at North Side he recorded a time of 56.00. Stuart Le Noury found himself two minutes behind, whilst brother Jason was well down on his normal time, taking in the race after a ten miles session to the start and an anticipated four miles after the race in preparation for walking the London marathon next month.

Defending champion Phil Lockwood, who for the last two years has beaten Rob Elliott by around a minute, did the same today, but this time only good enough for fourth place. Jayne Le Noury led the women home just outside her target of 80 minutes and almost catching Peter Beckerleg. Peter recorded 80 minutes dead to take four and a half minutes off his last years time.

The next race is on Sunday March 30th at Les Amarreurs. The distance is a one mile team handicap for the Philadelphia Cup starting at 9.30 am. Details from Jayne Le Noury lenouryjedburgh@cwgsy.net

Channel Island Ceramics Chilcott 7 miles

Filed under: Carl Thomson, Chilcott Cup — sarnia @ 7:22 pm

cic logo blue (high Res)1The next walk is on Sunday March 23rd over a distance of 7 miles from Albecq to North Side starting at 9.30 am. The race is for the Channel Island Ceramics Chilcott Cup. Details from Jayne Le Noury lenouryjedburgh@cwgsy.net.

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.

The current champion is Phil Lockwood, who has won the last two races , both times leaving Rob Elliott in second place less than a minute behind. Jayne Le Noury was the first woman home last year.

It is expected that the Le Noury brothers will both be challenging for first place this year, both well capable of going under the hour going on recent form. Both missed last weeks 10 kms Championship walk, being off the island. Guernsey walker Carl Thomson competed in the GIAAC 10 kms run championships last Sunday, walking a time of 50.33, just short of the time set by Stuart Le Noury early in 2014 over the same distance.

Channel Island Ceramics

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.

Lockwood retains Chilcott Cup  
 
Phil Lockwood (centre) retained the Office Solutions Chilcott Cup when winning by less than a minute from second placed Rob Elliott (in yellow) over the 7 miles course from Albecq to North Side.
Stuart Le Noury (in black), the favourite before the start finished a distant third. Ten walkers faced the starter on a cold and windy morning on the coastal course.
 
The leading three walkers were together for the first two miles, with Lockwood making the pace alongside Elliott. Le Noury was tucked in behind them, with the leading two expecting him to move ahead when he wanted to. Having just finished a long training run just before the start, it was thought he would ease into the walk steadily.
 
Going into the third mile and Le Noury moved ahead to pass the 3 mile point in 27.40, with Lockwood a few seconds down in second and Elliott a similar distance back in third. The pecking order had seemingly been set, until with half the race gone Le Noury hit a bad patch as the mornings miles caught up with him and he was soon passed by the other two.
 
Going through five miles and Lockwood was in the lead by around a minute from Elliott. Elliott tried hard to close the gap in the final miles as he sensed Lockwoods concern as Lockwood took a few glimpses back as to Elliotts whereabouts.
 
The gap came down a little but Lockwood crossed the line in 65.26. 44 seconds ahead of the second man home, in a repeat one two from last years race.
 
Jayne Le Noury was the leading lady finishing in 79.01 from Rose Druckes and Joanne Le Prevost. Newcomer Peter Beckerleg had a good race in his first seven mile event, coming home in 84.33. Mick Le Sauvage clipped his old age best time from 2010 by 14 seconds.
 
The next race is on Friday April 5th at Footes Lane at 6.30 pm. The event is the Office Solutions Eric Waldron Trophy over a distance of 2 miles. Details from Jayne Le Noury, lenouryjedburgh@cwgsy.net

Phil Lockwood secures Chilcott Cup win
 
Phil Lockwood (left receiving Cup from SWC President Dave Dorey) secured his first win in the Office Solutions Chilcott Cup, when keeping second man home Rob Elliott behind by less than a minute at the finish. In the absence of defending Champion Stuart Le Noury, it was left to Lockwood to start off quickly and open up a gap on Elliott. Easily done, despite the windy sections along the coastal route being met head on for a lot of the race, Lockwood had a lead of 1 minute 39 seconds on Elliott at the five miles point (45.20 to 46.59). Perhaps with Lockwoods efforts in the Easter Runs the previous week taking effect and Elliotts late planned hard effort over the final miles the gap was reduced by 45 seconds. Not enough to catch the winner but Elliott was happy with his race.
The race for third was won by Kevin Le Noury who found himself only seven seconds ahead of wife Jayne who recorded a new personal best time by over half a minute. Mick Le Sauvage finished fifth, two minutes ahead of second woman home Rose Druckes. Joanne Le Prevost and Karen Farman strolled home together at the back of the field in 1.42.49.

The next walk is on Sunday April 22nd at Les Amarreurs, Vale at 9.30 am. The event is a handicapped one mile race, with the Philadephia Team Cup at stake. Details from Jayne Le Noury, tel 246865.
