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.

Jayne wins fathers trophy 

Jayne Le Noury won the Bob Wright handicap series trophy, named in honour of her father for the 5th time, after the seven race series finished with a 3 kilometres walk at Cambridge Park. In good weather conditions for the time of year, she couldn’t end the series with a race win but did enough to keep the eventual second placed walker overall a few points adrift. Stuart Le Noury, second overall didn’t quite walk through the field from his back marker position but had a good go at it managing third place in the race, falling short of catching race winner Peter Beckerleg and Mick Le Sauvage. 

Stuarts time of 14.36 was the quickest actual time of the day, passing second and third quickest Rob Elliott, 17.12 and Donna Allan 17.43 in the final 100 metres.There were plenty of positional changes in the final 100 or so metres with six walkers finishing within 21 seconds of each other. Five of those finishing in a 9 second gap.

5 miles road walk

Lancresse to North Beach

Last to First

Race winner Stuart Le Noury walked through the field of walkers from his back marker position to claim a new personal best over the 5 miles distance. On a crisp winters morning with very little wind, he walked an actual time of 41.03 narrowly beating his old best time. Defending series winner Kevin Allan held on to second place holding off wife Donna who finished nine seconds behind. Donnas time of 47.49 was not too far off her time set last year which was the best time set by a Guernsey woman.

Rob Elliott, back in fourth closed down on Donna Allan who had a minutes handicap start in the first few miles, but could not close the final 10 or so seconds. As the gap slowly decreased Stuart Le Noury went past Elliott and then Donna, who upped her speed to hang on to Le Noury for a while and reopen the gap.

Fifth place went to Kevin Le Noury ahead of Kay Coulson who just managed to break the hour barrier as did Peter Beckerleg in seventh. Mick Le Sauvage was next home and edged closer to his 8,000th mile of race walking. Phil Lockwood brought the race to an end with his 57.33 clocking.

With one race to go and allowing for the two races that can be discarded in the seven race series, Jayne Le Noury, who had a very rare “did not finish” for todays race is set up as favourite with son Stuart the nearest challenger.

750 metresPace Judgement Challenge

Cambridge Park, Guernsey

Stuart hits the right pace

In a light hearted event, the Sarnia walkers had a 6 lap pace judgement challenge over 750 metres at Cambridge Park. Idea is to get all the individual lap efforts as close together time wise as possible without the aid of watches being worn.

With four laps completed Stuart Le Noury and Rob Elliott had managed to walk all their laps at the same pace with times of 4.06 and 4.13 respectivley. Kay Coulson and Kevin Le Noury with three second gaps were next in line. Rob blew his chance of victory with a fast last lap of 4.09, whilst winner Stuart, although picking up speed only did so by a three seconds. Kay carried on with her consistent efforts to end up in equal second place with Elliott, with a five seconds difference. Stuart Le Noury took the win with his three seconds difference.
