Donna Allan breaks the hour barrier

Donna Allan had the walk of the day as she smashed the hour barrier for the 10 kilometres road walk held over the four lap course at North Side. With race winner Stuart Le Noury away and gone from the start it was Donna that found herself trailing Rob Elliott after one 2.5 kilometres lap with both on course to break the hour. By three kilometres she had caught Elliott and left him, with both walkers walking well up on their recent performances. 

Going through the half way point in around 29.45 for 5 kilometres, Donna had a lead of around 30 metres over Elliott and under her previous best for that distance. Looking smooth she continued to open up the gap and walking a slightly quicker second half she crossed the line in 59.21, taking almost four minutes off her time set in the corresponding race last year. 

Race winner Le Noury had crossed the line in 54.29, with Elliott, still with a shout of getting under the hour with a lap to go, faded to finish nine seconds outside but pleased to get that close again. 

Fourth place went to Kevin Le Noury just breaking 70 minutes, with the next three home Peter Beckerleg, MIck Le Sauvage and Wendy Wilson all finishing close together. Newcomer Wendy Wilson, after only a handful of races removed over 5 minutes off her previous best time with a time of 1.13.07. Jayne Le Noury walked under her target time to bring home the field in the longer race.

In the 5 kilometres walk Olga Le Noury finished first in 36.14, ahead of Kay Coulson.

Bob Wright Handicap Series Race Three

3,000 metres track walk

Osmond Priaulx, Footes Lane, Guernsey

Le Sauvage leads Series 

Mick Le Sauvage leads the Bob Wright Handicap Series after three of the seven races completed. His sixth place in the latest race gives him a two point lead over Peter Beckerleg and Donna Allan.

A windy morning greeted the walkers with the fastest Stuart Le Noury walking through the field to cross the line first from his position of last walker to start. His actual time of 14.36 gave him the handicap win from Dave Dorey. Dave’s 22.11 actual time was almost a minute up on his last performance.

Third place went to Rob Elliott only five seconds ahead of first woman Donna Allan. A closely packed race had positions 2 to 9 separated by only 35 seconds. 

There were consistent times in comparison to recent walks from relative newcomers Wendy Wilson and Kevin Allan , both coping well in the conditions.

At the other end of the scale, Kevin Le Noury, with over forty years experience, walked his first race as an M60 with a time slower than expected.

Peter Kendal Pairs Trophy

Sunday October 29th 2017

Sarnia Walking Club

Peter Kendal Pairs Trophy 3 kilometres road walk

Les Amarreurs, Vale, Guernsey

Stuart and Wendy paired for Peter Kendal win

The pairing of Stuart Le Noury and newcomer Wendy Wilson were over a minute too good for the other teams in this perhaps unique Peter Kendal event. Second place went to Donna Allan and Olga Le Noury both walking good races, with third place going to the experienced Rob Elliott and newcomer Kevin Allan.

Wendy Wilson had the walk of the day walking much quicker than in her last few races to cover the 3 kilometres in 20.54. Stuart had the quickest time of the day at the shorter distance with a 7.20 clocking on what was a hard day to race with a head on wind up the longest part of the course. There was a smile from Wendy as this was the first time she had ever won a trophy in any sport.

Walkers are paired together with the entrants split between the faster and slower walkers in the race.

The teams start on handicap based on the slower walkers predicted times with the faster walker walking behind their teammate for half of the race, before all setting off at their own pace, resulting in a 3 kilometres result for the slower walkers and a 1.5 kilometres result for the faster. The faster walkers have their race predicted handicap added on at the finish.

2,000 metres track handicap walk

Osmond Priaulx Playing Fields, Guernsey

SAM_3401Dave leads from start to finish.

Dave Dorey (left) walked to victory in the the fourth annual Sean Pender (right) Trophy handicap race with an untroubled win. Set off first he had his best race for some time with the rest off the field unable to get near him.

Rob Elliott, second across the line, thought momentarily that the win was his as he closed in on Mick Le Sauvage and Jayne Le Noury with 100 metres to go before noticing that Dave was well ahead and metres from the finish. He finished 23 seconds behind the winner with third placed Donna Allan a few seconds behind. Donna recorded another personal best time over the distance, staying relatively close to Elliott after he had made up his 15 seconds handicap within the first lap. 

Stuart Le Noury recorded the fastest time of the day in 6th place with an actual time of 9.34. Phil Lockwood got the better of Kevin Le Noury for seventh, whilst race sponsor Sean Pender brought up the rear. Thanks go to visitor Sean Pender whose name the race is under but also supplies awards to the first three to finish and the fastest male and female walkers on the day.
