Bob Wright Handicap Series Race Five

5 kilometres road walk

North Side, Guernsey

RWA Permit 7001-1

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.

10 kilometres road walk

North Side, Vale, Guernsey

Big personal best time for leading woman

Donna Allan (photo) continues to take big steps forward since taking up race walking. In her latest race over 10 kilometres at North Side, held in good conditions after the storms of the previous 12 hours, she crossed the line in 1 hour 3 minutes and 13 seconds to remove almost three and a half minutes off her previous best time. 

A good day for the women saw Olga Le Noury and Jayne Le Noury  both walking quicker than their last race. The winner of the race was Stuart Le Noury, walking well up on his last race to finish in 54.33. He had a clear win from Rob Elliott back in second place.The third man Phil Lockwood was separated by the leading woman and finished fourth overall.

Kevin Le Noury was another to perform above expectations, with a time a couple of minutes up on expected . The other walkers to finish Peter Beckerleg and Mick Le Sauvage walked to form with Marie Macdonald having to record a  “did not finish”.

Stuart Le Noury will race the London marathon next year, taking the place that the Sarnia Walking Club are entitled too as members of “englandathletics”.

On a personal note (Rob Elliott) . Woke up this morning to see this link

It is from the 1982 Commonwealth Games in which I raced 30 kms in 2.24.28. Turned up for this 10 kms race this morning at North Side to find one of the roads closed to cars and pedestrians. So we used the extended course on which the Guernsey walkers used for the trials back then.

Back then I averaged 48.20 for a final 2.25.00 course and Guernsey record. Today I slipped back to 61 minutes!

Bob Wright Handicap Series Race Three

3,000 metres track

Osmond Priaulx, Footes Lane, Guernsey 

Second win for Donna

Donna Allan scored her second win in the Bob Wright Handicap Series after three races to head the series overall. She smashed her previous best time set recently and recorded the fastest womens time in Guernsey for the last seven years. 

Donnas first walk was in the recent Church to Church walk in September, which she entered late in the day and has showed good form since, taking to the event with ease. Her actual time of 17.41 gave her the handicap win over Dave Dorey (pictured moving into the final laps) by 17 seconds, who finished just ahead of a fast finishing Stuart Le Noury. Stuart was showing a good return to form with his 14.17 time being the fastest of the day. dsc_0302

Fourth place went to Rob Elliott, followed by Kevin Le Noury and Peter Beckerleg who both walked well on a sunny November day with a slight wind.Mick Le Sauvage got the better of Marie Macdonald, both walking close actual times of 20.25 and 20.33 respectively. Jayne Le Noury walking her usual consistent walk despite carrying an injury got the better of Phil Lockwood. Olga Le Noury brought the field home with a time of 20.12.

The next walk is on Sunday November 20th at 9.30 am at the old Quayside premises on North Side. The distances are either 5 or 10 kilometres.

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.

Bob Wright handicap series race one

5 kilometres road walk

1250m Development walk

Saumarez Park, Guernsey

RWA Permit 6079-1

From last to first

Stuart Le Noury, carrying the heaviest handicap time, walked through the field to win the first race in the Bob Wright Handicap Series held over 5 kilometres at Saumarez Park.

The series is now into its 13th annual edition and finishes next February after seven walks.

With his best performance for a while at this distance he crossed the line in an actual time of 25.32, almost half a minute ahead of second man home Peter Beckerleg. Newcomer and first woman to finish was Donna Allan in 34.14, finishing just ahead of last years series winner Mick Le Sauvage.

In fifth place was Dave Dorey twenty seconds behind holding off Olga Le Noury, followed closely by Kay Coulson. There was almost a minutes gap then to Rob Elliott and Phil Lockwood, both walking well below there best.

Jayne Le Noury and Marie Macdonald brought up the rear of the field, gaining themselves a few points which could still be quite handy come the end of the competition.

Regular walker Phil Lockwoods son Ellis walked in an Under 11 Development walk over 1250 metres finishing in 10.01 and looking good for a young walker who has only just started the event.

Close race for the women

 

Whilst Stuart Le Noury was enjoying an easy win over one mile, the leading women were involved in a close race as newcomer Donna Allan, who competed in her first race only weeks ago in the Church to Church walk, got the better of Marie Macdonald by one second.

Sarnia Walking Club

19.4 miles Church to Church road walk

South Esplanade, Guernsey

RWA Permit: 6042-1 

Fletcher shoots to the front in final quarter

Manx Harriers race walker Sam Fletcher shot into the lead shortly after 15 miles and held on to it, to get himself into the record books of an event celebrating its 80th birthday.

Four walkers soon made themselves a big gap in the Sarnia Walking Clubs annual 19.4 miles Church to Church road walk from the start line at South Esplanade.

Local walkers Stuart and Jason Le Noury made the pace up the hills of Cornet Street and Les vardes in the early stages of the walk, closely tracked by Sam Fletcher on his first visit to the island. Past winner Jim Ball was taking the early stages at an easy pace and found himself well down on the leaders.

Olga Le Noury, the Sarnia WC champion and Marie Macdonald, last years womens winner were together at this point with neither laying claim to be the favourite to win.

Moving on to the 5 miles point and then heading towards the lanes of Torteval, the leading four were all within 36 seconds of each other led by Stuart Le Noury in 49.20. Sam Fletcher followed 14 seconds behind, with Jim Ball having made his customary effort to close the gap once he reached the flatter sections of St Martins a further 9 behind. Olga Le Noury had opened up a gap on her main challenger Marie Macdonald as she passed the 5 miles in 59 minutes with a minutes lead.

At Les Vauxbelets and the 10 miles point Stuart Le Noury had increased his lead to almost a minute, going through in 96 minutes 20 seconds. Jim Ball continued his surge in second place but only just ahead of Sam Fletcher. Fourth man Jason Le Noury was still in contention less than a minute behind the third man.

Moving on from St Andrews and Castel and down towards Vale Church to 15 miles the Le Noury brothers both went through bad patches as Jim Ball kept the pressure on at the front of the field. Surprising himself at keeping going for so long on his limited training he still led at 15 miles in 2.25.13 with Sam Fletcher only 9 seconds down. Both Le Nourys were struggling now with times of 2.26.53 for Stuart and 2.30.52 for Jason.

As last year, Jim Ball, with a best time of 2 hours 48  minutes for the full distance set many years ago, knows that he will walk out of steam around this point and face the hard walk home to the finish. But his competitive instinct still means he has a good go at the front. And so it came as Sam Fletcher moved past him a few minutes later and smoothly hit the front of the race. There was only going to be one winner from this point if he held himself together.

Looking easy over the closing miles Fletcher crossed the line in 3 hours 07 minutes and 45 seconds to become the second male Manx winner of the event after Michael George in 2010 and 2012. Jim Ball finished five minutes behind for second place with first local Stuart Le Noury in third in 3.18.09, faster than his winning effort the year before to once again secure the Victory Cup as first local to finish. Fourth place went to Jason Le Noury three minutes behind.

Coventrys Godivas Glyn Jones took fifth place in 3.22.18 with a new personal best time. Past winner Ed Shillabeer held of fellow visitor Sean Pender for 6th place, closely followed by local Phil Lockwood.

Reversing last years positions, Olga Le Noury was first woman home in 3.54.13 to take the Star Trophy and a big personal best time by over four minutes, six minutes head of Marie Macdonald who only just failed to beat the four hours mark this time, but considering her injury problems of late was a satisfactory result.

Stalwart Kevin Le Noury clocked up 41 finishes in the walk, walking home in 4.01.40. Kevin was carrying an injury but will find it hard to stop his consecutive streak of finishes. Close after Kevin was newcomer and local woman Donna Allan who claimed third place in the womens section.

Regular visitor David Hoben from Surrey WC, bringing along Kathy Crilley for her first church to church strode home ahead of locals Peter Beckerleg and John Dedman. Kathy Crilley, only a week after competing in a 24 hours walk in Belgium, completed Guernseys shorter 19.4 miles in 4.05.21 to smash the womens age best time previously set at 4.31.44 by Hilda Nyman. At the back of the field Kay Coulson walked to another new best time of 4.18.17, a well deserved result after her recent training.

A special mention for Mick Le Sauvage who is trying to reach a total of 50 finishes. After a gap of a few years he completed his 48th last year, but retired in his 49th at the 15 miles at Sandy Hook. 

The Sarnia WC would like those that helped out at the event and to our generous sponsors providing awards to the competitors. Bucktrouts, Walkers Crisps, Relate Guernsey, Bourse Trust, Network Insurance, Healthspan, Rothschild, Electrical Supplies & Machinery (Guernsey) Ltd, Guernsey Candles, Louvre Group, LInce Salisbury, Richmond Fiduciary Group, Jupiter Trust, Trust Corporation, Jenny Elliott, Fletchersports, Bedell Cristin, Randalls of Guernsey, Collenette Jones, Kevin and Jayne Le Noury.

Newly weds are crowned as Champions

Newly weds Stuart Le Noury and Olga Sinkevica, the Sarnia Walking Club Heritage Group Champions for 2016 missed the final race over one mile as they were on honeymoon, letting in brother Jason and Marie Macdonald to take the respective victories in the final walk of the series.

Stuart Le Noury again wins the Sportsman Trophy as Champion with 2nd placed Phil Lockwood taking the Grace Mansfield Endeavour Trophy.

Olga Sinkevica wins the Carol Bates Memorial Championship Trophy retaining her title from 2015.

Junior Under 17 walker Alex Sinkevics wins the Junior Championship for the year.

Jason Le Noury walked away from the field to win easily in 7.31 from Phil Lockwood, whilst Marie Macdonald in 10.27 raced to a new Guernsey womens age best time, ahead of Jayne Le Noury.

Jayne Le Noury won the Jubilee Tankard for the handicapped section held in conjunction with the Championships with 89.5 points, ahead of Kay Coulson with 80 points and the first man Mick Le Sauvage.

The next race is on Sunday August 21st at 9.30 am for a 3 miles road walk on the Rocquaine Bay Circuit, starting at the Imperial Hotel and finishing at the Rocquaine coast road car lay-by.

Only a few weeks after that is the annual Church to Church road walk over 19.4 miles on September 4th starting at 9.00am. It is hoped for a close walk between the womens Church Champion Marie Macdonald and 2016 Club Champion Olga Sinkevica, now Le Noury.

Stuart Le Noury the reigning mens Champion can expect the close attention of visitors Jim Ball, himself a past winner and newcomer to the event Sam Fletcher from the Isle of Man. Added to the mix could be Jason Le Noury who has raced sparingly this year.

The event is not only about winners but is open to all standards of walkers with a generous time limit of 5 hours 30 minutes. Details from Jayne Le Noury lenouryjedburgh@cwgsy.net

Piette Trophy at Rocquaine

Sunday July 31st 2016

Sarnia Walking Club

Piette Trophy

Rocquaine Bay, Guernsey

3.8 miles handicap road walk

RWA Permit no: 6039-1

Following in fathers footsteps

image4Rob Elliott, the leading race walker in Guernsey many years ago, had only one trophy on the Sarnia Walking Clubs calendar open to him, that had eluded him. The handicapped Piette Trophy, held along the coast road at Rocquaine Bay and usually in conjunction with the Rocquaine Regatta was always out of reach in spite of Rob managing to set the course record three times.

Father Mick had won the first two events way back in 1971 and 1972 and until this year the family name was absent from the trophy. A small field of 6 walkers raced this year due to the absence of other regulars being off island.

In form Kay Coulson started impressively but slowed towards the end as she was reeled in by the first three walkers, but still recorded a huge personal course best time of 43.31, well ahead of her old 45.08 time.

Rob Elliott, off last on handicap, over took Phil Lockwood early on and made inroads on the others on the two lap course. He sensed his first win as he made the final turn for home with three quarters of a mile to go. It was only a matter of time before he hit the front with a wry smile as he went past eventual second placed walker Marie Macdonald to continue to victory.

Marie had the race of the day as she removed 2 minutes 14 seconds off her best time and kept Mick Le Sauvage back to third place.

At the back of the field Peter Beckerleg could not hold off Phil Lockwood who passed him late on.

The next race is on Sunday August 14th at Footes Lane. The distance is 1 mile and is the final race in the Heritage Group Championships. Looking further ahead, the annual Church to Church road walk will take place on Sunday September 4th at 9.00 am over the one lap course between the islands parish churches, starting and finishing at the South Esplanade.

 

The event, celebrating its 80th birthday in 2016, started out as a challenge to walk the 19.4 miles route in 3 hours 20 minutes. The challenge was met and the time broken as 38 walkers finished the walk. Todays walkers have a generous five and a half hours time limit, catering for those who just want to say they have completed the Church to Church.

Amongst the walkers expected this year are members of the Sarnia Walking Club as well as a few regular overseas walkers.The organisers welcome anyone wishing to take part, experienced at walking or not.
