Church to Church 19.4 miles

Sunday September 2nd 2018

 

Sarnia Walking Club

ABN-AMRO Private Banking Church to Church 19.4 miles walk

South Esplanade, St Peter Port, Guernsey

 

Third win for Stuart in traditional Church to Church walk

 

Stuart Le Noury walked to his third overall win in the annual Church to Church walk over 19.4 miles in a walk sponsored by ABN-AMRO Channel Islands Ltd. His winning time of 3 hours 11.24 was his second quickest time and walked in conditions that grew hotter as the race progressed.

Out on his own and unchallenged throughout the walk he had built up a lead of almost 5 minutes by the 4 miles point at the airport after walking from the South Esplanade and up the twisting hills and lanes via Cornet Street and Les Vardes, passing St Martins Church on the way through.

Rob Elliott had settled into second place and walking steadily had a lead over third men Phil Lockwood and Ian Torode, a visitor in his first Church walk, of nearly four minutes at the same point.

Leading woman Wendy Wilson passed by in 49 minutes with a 50 seconds lead over Ana Sahati. The expected leading woman Donna Allan, the Sarnia Walking Club Champion, was sidelined and had to be a frustrated spectator on doctors orders after an untimely recent visit to the hospital. 

After walking on to Torteval and through the ups and down hill sections to St Peters and St Saviours, Le Nourys lead increased as he passed the ten miles point at Les Vauxbalets in 1.35.45. Elliott, as last year hit that distance in a shade over 1 hour 50 minutes but was to soon start struggling with his pace noticeably slowing soon afterwards.

Other competitors were relatively close together with local Phil Lockwood, Ian Torode and Glyn Jones all in with a chance of third place going into the final miles.

Stuart, still well in control went through 15 miles at the Vale Church in around 2 hours 22 minutes and only slowing slightly claimed a convincing victory back in St Peter Port after negotiating the crowds at the Sea Front Sunday and on to the finish at South Esplanade. 

Elliott was still walking at his reduced pace as he glanced at the clock at Vale Church showing around 2 hours 50 minutes, thinking back to the days when he would reach the finish in that sort of time.

As conditions got hotter the walkers were sorting themselves out with Glyn Jones from Coventry Godiva, with a few Church walks under his belt claimed third place in 3.48.46. A couple of minutes behind was Ian Torode, a race walker from the south west of England, who held off Phil Lockwood by another few minutes.

 Stephen Cartwight, another first time competitor from Colchester and Tendring finished in 6th place in 3.55.23, ahead of regular visitor Sean Pender from Enfield in 3.57.27. Past winner and another regular walker to Guernsey events, Ed Shillabeer added another finish to his total with his slowest time in the walk, finishing in over 4 hours for 9th place. His best time was a winning 2.40.58 back in 1989. Ed recently walked for 11 hours in a 24 hours walk.

 Isle of Man walker, now working in Guernsey, John James Cooper finished in 4 hours 21.05. It was his first Guernsey walk but he has completed the Isle of Man version of the Guernsey race three times, with their distance being much further at 85 miles.

 Regular visitor David Hoben struggled in the closing stages but crossed the line for another finish in 4 hours 36. Less than five minutes behind was first local woman Ana Sahati with a winning time of 4.41.25. Second woman was regular local walker Wendy Wilson, walking much further than she has done before and struggling in the second half of the race. To her credit, she held on to finish as second woman in 4.56.41 and now has a trophy to show to her father Roger Brehaut who walked to second place in 1955 with a time of 3 hours 27 minutes in front of a big crowd at the finish.

 Today saw the end of a competitive streak by stalwart Kevin Le Noury. He first walked the event back in 1976 and was a winner of the Victory Cup for the first Channel Islander to finish back in 1987 and until today was an ever present on the start and finish line. Today he was officiating.

Heritage Group Championship Race Eight

10 miles road walk

Pleinmont to Lancresse, Guernsey

Hot conditions for road walkers

A hot summers morning greeted the walkers for their 10 miles race along the west coast of Guernsey from Pleinmont to Lancresse. Windless for much of the route and avoiding the temptation of the tempting clear high water just metres away, Donna Allan scored a win for the woman with a lonely race at the front of the field to take the honours in  1.41.29. The conditions ruled out any attempt to get close to the Guernsey womens 10 miles best time as she settled for a new personal best instead, only feeling the effects of the conditions late in the race.

In the absence of Championship leader Stuart Le Noury it was a race between Rob Elliott and Phil Lockwood to bring the men home. Elliott secured a gap of 75 metres early on and held it virtually throughout the race. A glance in a convenient shop window with a mile to go showed Elliott the gap which he increased in the final mile. Third man home was Peter Beckerleg followed by Mick Le Sauvage. Jayne Le Noury getting the better of Kay Coulson in the womens race.

North Side Circuit, Guernsey

Donna close to Guernsey womens best time

On a warm humid morning Donna Allan walked to within a minute of the best time set by a Guernsey woman for the 20 kilometres distance. A good start by Donna on the eight lap circuit saw her go through 5 kilometres in just under 30 minutes and 10 kilometres in 60.28 and on pace to get close to the time of 2.02.16 set by Katrine Thomson ten years ago. Donna hit a bad patch moving through to the 15 kilometres point which saw her lose a valuable minute with a time of 92.15. Picking up the pace in the final quarter of the race she crossed the line in 2.03.07.

In the mens section it was seven wins out of seven starts for Stuart Le Noury as he walked to another easy win with his 1.52.07, after passing half way in 54.46. Third overall was Phil Lockwood in 2.19.31 with second woman home Olga Le Noury not far off her personal best time holding off Kevin Le Noury.

Stuart Le Noury leads the way

With a time slower than would normally be expected, Stuart Le Noury had another easy win over 10 kilometres in the fifth race of the Heritage Group Championships. Having walked the around the island 39 miles non competitive walk the day before, he was perhaps more cautious today. Rob Elliott finished in second place, slightly quicker than in his last race, with Donna Allan taking third place overall and leading woman.

Donna was the other walker in the race having taken part in the longer event the day before. Phil Lockwood, another quicker than his last race continues to improve after suffering with injury not so long ago.

Kay Coulson, the second woman held off Mick Le Sauvage for fifth place with Dave Dorey completing the line up finishing in just over 80 minutes.

In the handicap section of the race Kay Coulson finished in first place ahead of Phil Lockwood.
