Stuart cruises to win

Stuart Le Noury cruised to victory in the Sarnia Walking Clubs evening race over the two lap Amarreurs course. Club members were joined by competitors from overseas who will be walking the Church to Church walk a few days later.

Stuart, with poor preparation for the race, only made the start with minutes to go, then handicapped himself with a quick visit to the roadside toilet en route to his 16.03 clocking. Donna Allan in second place just over a minute behind had the close company of Jim Ball from Southampton for half the race with Rob Elliott close behind. Donna easily pulled away in the latter stages whilst Elliott caught Ball for equal third place.

Kevin Le Noury held off fellow club member Peter Beckerleg by 26 seconds with visitor Stephen Cartwright a further four seconds behind in 20.31. Regular visitor David Hoben recorded 21.34, ahead of Sarnia stalwarts, Mick Le Sauvage, Dave Dorey and Jayne Le Noury.

Back in 12th place, and in his first event for 12 years,  was one time Sarnia member Colin Bradley from Wales, who has been a regular competitor to both walks and runs in Guernsey for many years. He now walks aided by sticks but decided to relinquish his judging duties and walked the course in a satisfying 31 minutes dead. In his prime he walked the distance in 13 minutes.

Sean Pender Trophy

2,000 metres track handicap

Lockwood wins the Sean Pender Trophy ( Phil left in photo with Dave Dorey, President.

Phil Lockwood improved on his second place of last year as he crossed the line first in the annual Sean Pender Trophy handicap walk over 2,000 metres. A good performance by him, with his best time for three years, was too good for second placed Peter Beckerleg who finished 12 seconds down. A close race for third was won by scratch walker Dave Dorey from last walker to start Stuart Le Noury. The fast finishing Stuart falling short by only a second to finish in fourth place. His fastest time of the day was only a second down on his 2018 performance. 

Kevin Le Noury finished in fifth place with Rob Elliott striding past Jayne Le Noury in the final 30 metres. Elliott claimed a new Guernsey age best for the distance on the track, but still down on the time set by Terry Bates in a road walk.

Thanks go to the UK based Sean Pender for his continued support of his trophy in providing the leading men and women with medals and prizes.

This was the final walk for some time at this venue with the track due to be upgraded over the summer months and extended to 8 lanes.
