Eric Waldron 2 miles track walk

Osmond Priaulx, Guernsey 

Win number eight

Stuart Le Noury raced to his eighth Eric Waldron title over the two miles track distance with an easy win in the latest race. Dominating from the start he lapped the field to finish in 15.23, only four seconds behind his personal best time set a few years ago. Second home was Rob Elliott, himself a multiple winner of this event many years back. 

Third place went to Donna Allan in 19.01, adding a new Guernsey age best to her recent collection. The time was the third fastest by a local woman, behind times set by Jenny Elliott and sister Kathryn Tostevin in this now rarely walked distance.

Youngest walker Ellis Lockwood made a good effort in the closing laps to close down Kay Coulson, with Coulson only just holding on by a second.

He donated the trophy to the GIAAC 53 years ago in 1964, which in turn was passed on to the SWC in 1970. Inaugural winner of the 2 miles track (grass track at Cambridge Park) walk was Len Duquemin winning narrowly from John Moullin, both given the same time of 16.09.1. Duquemin improving his time to 14.46.5 in 1966, which until 2009 was the Guernsey Allcomers Record for a 2 miles track walk, until Carl Thomson walked 14.40.4.

The event moved to the roads after that from 1969 to 2002. From 2003 the race has moved back to a track walk for most years to 2017.

Len Duquemin`s track time has frequently been surpassed with winning times on the road. Walker’s fastest winning times in this race are, Rob Waterman 14.30 in 1969, Andy Le Heron 14.15 in 1972, Mick Elliott 14.33 in 1974, Rob Elliott 13.58 in 1981, Mark Elliott 13.56 in 1985, Carl Thomson 14.02 in 1990, Jason Le Noury 15.10 and Stuart Le Noury 15.19.

Fastest time for the event is by Mark Elliott in 13.56 (1995). Youngest winner is Jason Le Noury at 15 years old in 2004. The walk has once been won by a woman, Jenny Elliott in 1999 and once had a tie for first place between local Kevin Le Noury and visitor Sean Pender.

Personal best for race winner 

Donna Allan, who has improved rapidly since her first race last September, surpassed all expectations as she broke 30 minutes and removed a huge amount of time off her previous best of 34.14. Set off with Phil Lockwood on handicap, she soon moved ahead of him and started to make inroads on those set off in front of her. Hitting the front with still plenty of the race left she crossed the line in an actual time of 29.53. This time was a new age best time for Guernsey, beating that set by Jenny Elliott some years ago.

Second home, also with a performance better than expected was Peter Beckerleg in an actual time of 33.30. A close finish for third was won by Rob Elliott who had to find a sprint to overcome Phil Lockwood. Lockwoods glance behind leading him to try to hold off his rival with his own short lived final effort.

Second woman to finish was Jayne Le Noury, holding off Mick Le Sauvage for fifth place. 

Marie Macdonald had a good race overtaking Kay Coulson and Dave Dorey. After five races in the series and with two to go Donna Allan and Peter Beckerleg are in the first two positions but with a lot still to walk for.

Stuart Le Noury ended the local race walking year with an easy victory from second placed Phil Lockwood, crossing the line in 27.49. The walkers were competing in the hilly 3 miles lap starting at the Imperial Hotel and going to Torteval Church before dropping back to the coast road.

A seemingly relaxed approach was taken by the rest of the field as they crossed the line in pairs.

Rob Elliott opted to walk with Donna Allan in her first race on this course and they finished in third place. Year long race rivals Olga and Kevin Le Noury finished together in 34.36, with Kay Coulson and Mick Le Sauvage a further minute behind.

Peter Kendal Pairs Trophy

Peter Kendal Pairs Trophy 

3 kms handicap road walk 

Les Amarreurs, Vale, Guernsey

Close finish in team event

The annual Peter Kendal team trophy was a decided by a close race between the first three teams with only 31 seconds separating them once the handicap times had been added on. 

The novelty race is between teams of two walkers, drawn together from a fast group of walkers and a slower group, walking together for the first 1.5 kilometres lap, before the faster walkers are allowed to race at their own pace for the next lap with team mates continuing at their pace.

Teams are started on handicap from the slower walkers 3 kilometres predicted times, with the faster walkers handicap added on at the end after their 1.5 kilometres effort. Sounds complicated but it works. 

Mick Le Sauvage and Olga Le Noury emerged as winners from Kay Coulson and Donna Allan by 28 seconds, with Jayne and Kevin Le Noury a few seconds back in third place.

Fastest of the walkers doing the 3 kilometres was Peter Beckerleg in 19.52 from Mick Le Sauvage in 20.08 with Kay Coulson with a personal best time of 20.32 in third place.

In the 1.5 kilometres race after walkers had stayed with their team mates for the first lap, Stuart Le Noury finished in 7.16. Second quickest was Rob Elliott in 8.19.

The walk of the day was by Donna Allan who is still getting used to the event after only a handful of races, recording a swift 8.46 for third place. She also recorded 19.17 for the full distance after walking the first lap with Kay Coulson, who relishes this type of competition. Officially only her 1.5 kms time will count in Sarnia records but still a 3 kms time to note.

Past competitor Darren Lynch on holiday from his home in South Africa came down to visit the older walkers and recalled that this Peter Kendal trophy was the first one that he won with Mick Le Sauvage back in 1980. In those days the event was contested between teams consisting of one senior over 17 years walker and one junior under 17.

Cambridge Park new courses

Sunday October 23rd 2016

Sarnia Walking Club

3 kilometres and 1.5 kilometres road walks

Cambridge Park, Guernsey

Double for Stuart

Stuart Le Noury scored two easy wins in the Sarnia Walking Club events held on new courses at Cambridge Park. Facing leaves and acorns on the ground, freshly fallen from the windy conditions the night before, 11 walkers started the longer walk.

Trialling the lap of 600 metres for the first time, Stuart had the company of brother Jason for two laps as they crossed the line in 6.39, after an opening 3.19. Jason pulled out of the race at this point with reoccurring injury, whilst Stuart increased his speed over the next three laps with 3.19, 3.14 and a closing lap of 2.57 for a final time of 16.08.

Second home was Kevin Le Noury in 20.14 followed by Marie Macdonald and Donna Allan in 20.45 and 20.48 respectively. 

Marie had opened up a gap of eight seconds on Donna with a lap to go, cut to three by the finish.

Peter Beckerleg again got the better of Mick Le Sauvage with his 21.23, who in turn held off the third woman home Kay Coulson. An out of sorts OLga Le Noury finished in 22.11 with Jayne Le Noury, losing time removing a stone from her shoe on the first lap, just falling short of catching last man home Dave Dorey.

In the shorter walk over 1.5 kilometres on a 750 metres lap, Stuart recorded 8.05, another one to fall victim of a stone in his shoe, with Rob Elliott in 8.22 taking second place. Fastest of the women was Donna Allan 11.06 ahead of Kay Coulson in 11.12. Jayne Le Noury reversed the positions of the first race beating Dave Dorey by a minute.

The next walk is on Sunday October 30th at 9.30 am at Les Amarreurs. The distance is 3 kilometres for the Peter Kendal Pairs Trophy.
