Two break the hour in 10 kilometres walk

Stuart Le Noury dominated the 10 kilometres walk as he cruised to a satisfying win in 52.30 on the four lap North Side circuit. With the shorter distance of 5 kilometres starting at the same time, he was still too fast for the winner of that event, as Rob Elliott crossed in 30.49. Stuart had passed his halfway point in 26.16. 

Donna Allan, in the 10 kilometres race, had started steadily and overtaken Rob Elliott after one kilometre and opened up a 40 metres lead, but slowed on the second lap giving Elliott a target as he closed the gap slightly as he neared his finish line. Donna hit her halfway point in 30.40. She picked up the pace on the third lap walking at close to the hour pace, with a 15.04 lap and then really pushed on to record a sub 14 minutes last lap to crack the hour mark with a final time of 59.42.

Third place in the 10 kilometres went to Kay Coulson in 1.16.07. In the shorter race, Kevin Le Noury finished second ahead of Peter Beckerleg and Mick Le Sauvage who tied for third place.
