New Personal Best for Womens Champion

Donna Allan, the defending club champion strode to a new personal best time by almost a minute on a near perfect morning for racing. Whilst race winner Stuart Le Noury, not at his best today, was out on his own from the start, Donna was matching the pace set by eventual second man home Rob Elliott for half of the 16 laps course, before moving away over the final 5 kilometres. 

Le Noury, through half way in just under 26 minutes, had already forged a big lead with Donna through in 29.25 and Elliott a few seconds adrift in 29.35. Donna increased her pace to record a negative split time of 29.03 for the latter half as she crossed the line in 58.28. Elliott, whose target for the day was to once again get under the hour, managed the task with a 59.36, his best time for almost four years and having the added bonus of another new Guernsey age best time, deposing Terry Bates of his age best for the second race in a row.

Donnas time is now the official Guernsey Record, although Katrine Thomson recorded quicker in 2008 but not ratified as a record due to insufficient officials on the day.

A close walk for fourth place was won by Phil Lockwood from Kevin Le Noury. At the back of the field Mick Le Sauvage hit a new milestone as he completed 8,000 miles of competitive race walking. Now nearing his 80th birthday, Mick started racing back in 1959 by completing the Guernsey Church to Church walk and has been an almost ever present since the formation of the Sarnia Walking Club. Remarkably, all but a handful of miles have been completed in Guernsey. As he now inevitably slows down he can think back to the days when he could walk the Church to Church in 3 hour 11 minutes, 10 miles in under 90 minutes, 7 miles in under an hour and todays distance in 53.13…..which would have pipped todays winner.

Elliott and Allan open Championships with a win.

Rob Elliott opened up the Sarnia Walking Club 2019 Championship with a winning 28.49 clocking over 5 kilometres, ahead of second placed and leading woman Donna Allan with 30.58. Elliott, celebrating his birthday and moving up into the M60 age group, surprised himself with his best time for three years and in the process broke the Guernsey age best time set by Terry Bates back in 2011. A seven minute dead time for the first of the four laps gave him a good start which was followed by laps of 7.13, 7.19 and 7.17.

Second and third places were taken by walkers who have entered marathons in the next few months, second placed Donna in London and third placed Phil Lockwood in Brighton. Fourth place went to Kevin Le Noury ahead of Kay Coulson who claimed the handicap win. Next home was Mick Le Sauvage , one race away from his 8,000 miles milestone with Dave Dorey bringing home the field. 

Kevin Allan and Jayne Le Noury both succumbed to injuries and completed around half the distance.

Close races in the middle of the field saw Peter Beckerleg hold off Kevin Le Noury by two seconds.

Dave Dorey set off quick and just held on to fifth place from a faster finishing Mick Le Sauvage, who in turn held off Kay Coulson the fastest woman on the day. She finished ahead of Jayne Le Noury and Rose Druckes, who was racing for the first time in three years.

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.

20 kilometres road walk

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.
