Longest distance by Elliott in Willow Trust Hour
Rob Elliott walked the furthest distance in the Willow Trust Ltd One Hour Track walk when he walked 10,306 metres in the allotted time. He expected to walk a close race with Phil Lockwood, who pulled out of the event after 9 laps with a back problem. At this point Lockwood held a 70 metres lead over Elliott who was closing the gap slowly.
Elliott, aiming for at least 10 kilometres in the hour was ahead of his target for all the race, passing 5 kilometres in 29 minutes and 10 kilometres in around 58.20.
Second furthest distance went to Peter Beckerleg with 8,603 metres and then Mick Le Sauvage 8,571 metres. Mick walked 190 metres further than his own Age Best time. Dave Dorey finished 150 metres down, with the only lady Kay Coulson walking 7,430 metres. Allan Harris on his way back from injury completed just over 7 kilometres.
Unusually there were no Le Nourys in the race as three of them, Jayne, Kevin and Stuart had walked the near 40 miles Itex Around Guernsey walk the day before. Kevin and Jayne were quite happy to officiate in the One Hour. The Itex Walk is a non competitive stroll around Guernsey taking in the cliff paths and coastal paths. Itex Walk website.
The next walk is on Friday June 21st at Footes Lane over a distance of 5,000 metres. The event is the 6th race in the Heritage Group Championships starting at 6.30 pm.

One Hour Track

Filed under: Carl Thomson, one hour, Phil Lockwood — sarnia @ 4:34 pm

   Waiting for the “Off” at the Olympic Games. Rob Elliott, Jason and Stuart Le Noury try out the grandstand  with our smaller flags before moving roadside with the big Guernsey and GB ones giving us the chance to hammer on the hoardings on the barriers as the field went by. Lots of noise from a huge crowd.

One Hour Win For Thomson
A small field contested the Willow Trust One Hour Walk, due mainly to the absence of usual competitors being off the island. Carl Thomson walked almost 12 kilometres in the hour as he completed 11,879 metres in the allotted time. This distance was comfortably better than Rob Elliotts previous best distance set back in 2005.
I have just had a phone call from Carl who timed his laps. For most laps he walked between 1.59 and 2.02, with three others at 2.03, one at 2.04 and a final full lap at 1.57. Good even paced walking with 2 kms splits of 10.03, 10.05, 10.07, 10.09 and 10.11.
The next furthest distance recorded was that of Phil Lockwood who walked 10, 526 metres. Back in third Terry Bates continued to break the Guernsey age best performances, breaking the record distance set previously by over 200 metres.
Kevin Le Noury got the better of wife Jayne who also set an age group best. Allan Harris, a newcomer to walking walked just short of 7,500 metres.
Whilst some club members watched the Olympic race walks in London, pictured above by Jayne Le Noury in the 50 kms event,  Carl Thomson walked the 5 miles distance at the Enfield 2012 Friendship Walks, in a mid week promotion organised between the two weekends that the Olympic walks were held.
He finished in second place in a time of 39.47, 23 seconds behind Francisco Reis of Ilford AC and two seconds ahead of third man home Ian Richards from Steyning AC. Carl closed down a big gap in the latter stages of the race after Reis and Richards set off fast, with Richards succumbing to Thomson and Reis having his lead cut.
The next walk is on Friday August 31st at 6.30 pm at Les Amarreurs, Vale. The distance is 3 kilometres and is a warm up event for the Church to Church 19.4 miles walk being held two days later.
The Church to Church walk on Sunday September 2nd starts at 9.00 am for both men and women. Leading walker is expected to take less than 3 hours to complete the 19.4 miles course. Allcomers are welcome to compete and with a generous time allowance of 5 hours 30 minute, is well within the capabilities of those out to just complete this traditional event.
