10 kilometres road walk

North Side, Vale, Guernsey

RWA Permit 7052-1

With regular walkers either injured or on holiday the expected Championship 20 kms was replaced with a shorter 10 kms. No problem where we can make decisions swiftly on the day with only local walkers involved.

A small field contested the 10 kms road walk with the first three all walking isolated races. Stuart Le Noury was an easy winner recording 55.49 for the 4 lap course with a negative split time with the help of a 13.29 last 2.5 kms lap. Rob Elliott inexplicably struggled throughout losing three minutes in the second half with Kevin Le Noury finishing third  in 1.11.35. The two back markers Peter Beckerleg and Mick Le Sauvage walked fairly closely together with Beckerleg crossing the line first by 21 seconds.

Les Amarreurs, Vale, Guernsey

Double win for Donna Allan 

Donna Allan took the individual win and was part of the team win in the 50th annual Graham Mann Memorial Trophy over a handicapped start 3 kilometres. Overtaking Dave Dorey, the first walker to start, late in the race she crossed the line with a five seconds advantage and an actual time of 17.10 to smash her previous best time by over half a minute.

The team of Stuart Le Noury and Rob Elliott finished in third and fourth place but with Peter Beckerleg only a stride behind he had done enough with his team mate Donna Allan to take first place in the team section.

Sixth place went to Mick Le Sauvage who had been on the winning team almost 50 years ago in the second edition of the event. Kevin Le Noury brought the walkers home with his 19.53 actual time.

Only 19 seconds separated the three teams at the end.

1 Donna Allan W40 22.10 (watch time) / 5.00 (handicap) / 17.10 (actual time)

Albecq to North Side, Guernsey

Stuart wins 7 miles Chilcott Cup

Stuart Le Noury easily broke seven miles in the hour to record another win in the annual Channel Island Ceramics Chilcott Cup. On a clear warm morning he strode out from the start at Albecq and crossed the line at North Side in 58.30.

A close finish for second place was won by the experienced Rob Elliott from relative newcomer Donna Allan. Walking at a faster pace over a similar distance than her recent 10 kilometres personal best, she caught Elliott with half a mile to go and opened up a few seconds gap around the Vale Castle and heading down to the long straight finish at North Side.

A still confident Elliott held the gap for a while before catching and moving away in the final yards. The one hour mark for 10 kilometres gets closer for Donna.

Olga Le Noury held off Kevin Le Noury for fourth place. 

Kay Coulson in 6th place had a good race finishing in 1.20.30 and backed up her performance in England last week where she set a new personal best time of 1.12.09 over 10 kilometres. The event was the Cecil Gittins Memorial race at Gravesend where she finished as 6th woman.

Back to the local event and Mick Le Sauvage held off Peter Beckerleg by a few minutes with Jayne Le Noury bringing the race to a close.

Donna Allan and Phil Lockwood took the honours in the second race of the clubs Championships. First overall was Donna Allan in 32.17, ahead of Lockwoods 33.26.

Two minutes down on the leading woman was Olga Le Noury, ahead of Jayne Le Noury in third.

The club are sad to report the recent passing of past treasurer Hazel Mann in her 89th year. Hazel and her late husband Austin were treasurer and secretary of the Sarnia Walking Club for many years.

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.
