Strong winds slow down the race walkers

The expected 10 kilometres road walk was reduced to two laps and three kilometres with the windy conditions taking their toll before the walk had started. A strong headwind up the longest straight slowed things down for the walkers, with Stuart Le Noury winning in 15.40 from Rob Elliott.

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.

10 kilometres road walk

Permit no. RWA8009-1r1

Delancey Park, Guernsey

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.

Channel Islands Ceramics Eric Waldron Trophy 

2 miles track walk

Osmond Priaulx, Footes Lane, Guernsey 

Win number 12 for Elliott

Rob Elliott secured his 12th win in the Channel Island Ceramics Eric Waldron trophy when winning in almost the slowest winning time in the long history of the 2 miles event. Absent from the start line was current club champion Stuart Le Noury who is out of action for a time with a stress fracture and would have been otherwise attempting 8 wins in a row.

Elliott led from start to finish to record 18.28 after reaching halfway in 9.11. Close behind in a new personal best time was leading woman Donna Allan in 18.46, breaking her previous best of 19.01.

Kevin Le Noury claimed third place in 21.47, closely followed by second woman home Olga Le Noury. Peter Beckerleg, Wendy Wilson and Kevin Allan were in close contention for much of the race before spitting up in the latter stages. Stalwarts Mick Le Sauvage and Jayne Le Noury were next home followed by past winner of the race Dave Dorey.

The next race in the Channel Island Ceramics sponsored traditional races is the 7 miles Chilcott Cup raced between Albecq and North Side.

The man behind the trophy can be found below. Written few years ago.

 Who is Eric Waldron? Follow the link to a profile: http://walkguernsey.wordpress.com/sportsman-champions-profiles/eric-waldron/

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.

Bob Wright Handicap Series Race Seven

5 miles road walk

Lancresse to North Beach, Guernsey 

Kevin Allan wins Bob Wright Series

Kevin Allan did enough in the final race of the Bob Wright Handicap Series to depose wife Donna of the title she won last year. Kevin, in his first 5 mile race held on to the lead in the handicapped event until in sight of the finish when Donna swept past him to take the family honours in the race. They can now decide to agree that both had the race of the day.

Donna took the win in the final event in 47.23 actual time to finish 17 seconds ahead of husband Kevin whose actual time was 57.10. Almost a minute further back was Rob Elliott who recorded the fastest  time of the day with his 47.18. Starting 1.15 behind Donna he made up a small gap in the early miles before having to keep an eye on her back as her lead increased towards the end but managed to keep the gap just small enough.

With knowledge of the fastest 5 miles time set by a Guernsey woman being Jenny Elliotts 1999 time of 48.18 Donna had a target which she duly broke by 55 seconds and in doing so took two minutes off her personal best time set last year.

It was these three walker that finished in the leading positions in the final Bob Wright table, with Kevin in first place with Donna three points behind. Elliott held on to third place on count back after recording equal points with Bob Wrights daughter Jayne Le Noury.

3 kilometres road walk

Cambridge Park, Guernsey

Kevin Allan continues his good form

Kevin Allan continues his good form with a two minutes improvement on his previous best time for the 3 kilometres walk. Although down the field back in eighth equal place with Wendy Wilson, his performance was probably the best of the day.

A chilly morning greeted the walkers who raced over a twisty four lap course with Stuart Le Noury out on his own from the start to finish a few seconds outside of 15 minutes. Also isolated back in second place was Rob Elliott with a satisfying 16.46. Third place in the mens section went to Phil Lockwood who is slowly getting back to form after a lengthy lay off through injury last year. 

Quickest of the women was Donna Allan in 17.44 in third actual position overall, ahead of Olga Le Noury and Wendy Wilson. Wendy finishing only seconds outside of her best time. Kevin Le Noury had Peter Beckerleg in close contention for most of the race, beating him to the line by seven seconds.

Kay Coulson had a good race with her 21.41, whilst Jayne Le Noury lost out to Mick Le Sauvage by only seconds.

Dave Dorey brought up the rear after fading in the second half to cross the line in 23.32.

The next race is the final event in the Bob Wright handicap series over a distance of 5 miles. It is on February 18th at 9.30 am from Lancresse to North Beach, White Rock.

Another win for Kevin Allan

Kevin Allan secured his second win in the Bob Wright Handicap Series to move clear at the top of the leaderboard with one race to go.

Set off 15 seconds after the scratch walkers Jayne Le Noury and Dave Dorey, he soon bridged the gap and moved ahead, before holding on by a second at the finish line from a fast finishing Phil Lockwood.

Jayne Le Noury in third place holding off Rob Elliott by the same gap of one second. In fifth place the fastest woman on actual time was Donna Allan who improved her best time on the track by around half a minute and in doing so reduced her Guernsey age best time to 9.07. Stuart Le Noury recorded the fastest time of the day with his 7.27.

With one race to go over 5 miles next month and noting the possible discarded races to date in this 5 from 7 to score series, we have Kevin Allan clear by 3 points. Behind him there are nine walkers separated by five points, with everything to walk for in the final event.
