5 miles road walk

Lancresse to North Beach, Guernsey

Handicapper pipped on the line

Club handicapper Mick Le Sauvage, who had moved into the lead in the middle section of the 5 miles road walk from Lancresse to North Beach, lost his lead in the final few strides to back marker Stuart Le Noury. Raced in windy conditions, with strong headwinds slowing the competitors, fastest walker of the day Stuart Le Noury with a 21 minutes handicap, looked ahead and still with a big gap to close with quarter of a mile to go, ground out the final sprint to take the win in an actual time of 42.42. Emulating his win from the corresponding race held last year Stuart heads the Bob Wright Series by a point from father Kevin. Once race discards are counted then Peter Beckerleg, third across the line brings himself into contention for a series win with one race to go.

Beckerleg leads the way

Race winner Peter Beckerleg, easily held off the faster finishing Stuart Le Noury in the 2 kilometres out and back course held at Pleinmont. The windy conditions added to the hilly course made for a harder than usual race. Kevin Le Noury, losing out second place in the closing stages to son Stuart, heads the series with a one point advantage over Stuart moving into 2020 when the series resumes.

Fourth place went to Kay Coulson, ahead of Rob Elliott. Jayne Le Noury, still troubled by injury, held off Donna Allan for sixth. Stuart Le Noury had the fastest time of the day with 9.41, followed by Donna Allan and Rob Elliott with 12.13 and 12.16 respectively, both well down on what can normally be expected of them.

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.
