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.

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.

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.

Huge personal best for Kevin Allan

A hot Sunday morning greeted the race walkers for their 10 kilometres walk at Delancey. The performance of the day went to the man in 4th place Kevin Allan who improved his personal best time by seven minutes to finish in 1.14.17. He has showed steady progress in recent races around this distance and found himself within a minute of the third placed walker Kevin Le Noury.

The race winner as expected was Stuart Le Noury in 56.09, winning easily from Rob Elliott. An isolated Mick Le Sauvage was fifth in 1.18.03, with equal sixth place going to women Jayne Le Noury and Wendy Wilson a few minutes further back.

Donna Allan, after racing in the Brighton marathon the week before, walked with friend and first time competitor Cara De La Mare in 1.25.24.

Donna, race walking the marathon, finished in 5.10.39. An enthusiastic start saw her pass the 10 kilometres point in 59 minutes and the half marathon in an impressive 2.13.39. She was still going well through 25 kilometres in 2.42.39 before the going got tough, passing 30 kilometres in 3.23.39. The final miles were very hard going with Donna sticking to the task of finishing.

Another Sarnia walker, Phil Lockwood, missed the local event to take place in the London marathon, finishing in 5.40.28, walking even splits after passing half way in 2.48.59.
