10 kilometres road walk

Delancey Park, Guernsey

Narrow win for Peter

Walkers were greeted with wet conditions throughout their 10 kilometres race with challenging underfoot conditions with fallen leaves and twigs from the previous nights winds. Undeterred and backing up his second place in the last race Peter Beckerleg secured the handicap win in the second race of the Bob Wright Series with a twenty one seconds advantage over second placed Stuart Le Noury.

Third place, a few seconds behind, was Kevin Le Noury, who on the same starting handicap as the winner, had the winner in close sight throughout the race. Mick Le Sauvage finished in 4th place, with Donna Allan eight seconds behind. Phil Lockwood was a further minute behind with last walker Rob Elliott well behind with a race to forget.

Fastest time of the day was by Stuart Le Noury in 53.33, ahead of leading woman Donna Allan in 1.01.00.

Stuart cruises to win

Stuart Le Noury cruised to victory in the Sarnia Walking Clubs evening race over the two lap Amarreurs course. Club members were joined by competitors from overseas who will be walking the Church to Church walk a few days later.

Stuart, with poor preparation for the race, only made the start with minutes to go, then handicapped himself with a quick visit to the roadside toilet en route to his 16.03 clocking. Donna Allan in second place just over a minute behind had the close company of Jim Ball from Southampton for half the race with Rob Elliott close behind. Donna easily pulled away in the latter stages whilst Elliott caught Ball for equal third place.

Kevin Le Noury held off fellow club member Peter Beckerleg by 26 seconds with visitor Stephen Cartwright a further four seconds behind in 20.31. Regular visitor David Hoben recorded 21.34, ahead of Sarnia stalwarts, Mick Le Sauvage, Dave Dorey and Jayne Le Noury.

Back in 12th place, and in his first event for 12 years,  was one time Sarnia member Colin Bradley from Wales, who has been a regular competitor to both walks and runs in Guernsey for many years. He now walks aided by sticks but decided to relinquish his judging duties and walked the course in a satisfying 31 minutes dead. In his prime he walked the distance in 13 minutes.

Back to their roots 

Stuart Le Noury walked to a win over Rob Elliott lapping him on the line in the process as he finished in 15.33 at Cambridge Park over 3,000 metres. Phil Lockwood took third place ahead of a close race for fourth between Peter Beckerleg and Kevin Le Noury.  Peter holding the edge throughout most of the race and holding his challenger off by a second.

Leading woman was Kay Coulson in 22.25 ahead of Jayne Le Noury. For two of the walkers it was a return to the grass track at Cambridge Park after a gap of over 50 years. Making use of the temporary track whilst the Footes Lane track is being renovated and moving off the park paths, Masters walkers Dave Dorey, well into his 70s and Mick Le Sauvage almost touching 80 years old, went back to their track roots with Dave Dorey recalling the days when Sarnia Walking Club used the track for their ‘One Hour” walks amongst others.

Sean Pender Trophy

2,000 metres track handicap

Osmond Priaulx, Footes Lane, Guernsey

Lockwood wins the Sean Pender Trophy ( Phil left in photo with Dave Dorey, President.

Phil Lockwood improved on his second place of last year as he crossed the line first in the annual Sean Pender Trophy handicap walk over 2,000 metres. A good performance by him, with his best time for three years, was too good for second placed Peter Beckerleg who finished 12 seconds down. A close race for third was won by scratch walker Dave Dorey from last walker to start Stuart Le Noury. The fast finishing Stuart falling short by only a second to finish in fourth place. His fastest time of the day was only a second down on his 2018 performance. 

Kevin Le Noury finished in fifth place with Rob Elliott striding past Jayne Le Noury in the final 30 metres. Elliott claimed a new Guernsey age best for the distance on the track, but still down on the time set by Terry Bates in a road walk.

Thanks go to the UK based Sean Pender for his continued support of his trophy in providing the leading men and women with medals and prizes.

This was the final walk for some time at this venue with the track due to be upgraded over the summer months and extended to 8 lanes.

5 kms Champ and 3 kms Graham Mann

Another personal best for Donna Allan

Stuart Le Noury and Donna Allan continue to dominate the club Championships, with both being well clear of their nearest opponents in the latest walk over 5 kilometres held on a warm and sunny morning at North Side. Overall winner Stuart dipped under 25 minutes, whilst second home Donna Allan, after a slow start in the opening lap of two which she passed in around 14.40, sped up to cross the line in 28.45 for a new personal best time removing a minute from her previous time. Third place went to Rob Elliott, well down on his recent age best , but still a minute too good for fourth placed Phil Lockwood. 

Good walks from Donna and Phil gave them the first two places in the handicapped section of the race, closely followed by Kay Coulson.

A week earlier and Peter Beckerleg  claimed the individual win in the Graham Mann Team trophy over three kilometres, edging out Mick Le Sauvage. The team win went to Le Sauvage and Dave Dorey after watch times were added together. It was a close team race as the winners only had a seven seconds advantage over the second team, who in turn beat the third team by three seconds.

Rocquaine 3 miles

Sarnia Walking Club

3 miles road walk

Rocquaine, Guernsey

Three in a row for Elliott

Second placed Rob Elliott seems to have found renewed enthusiasm since moving into the M60 age group and for the third race in a row has broken the Guernsey age best time. Following his recent 5 and 10 kilometres bests he has now added the 3 miles best to the list, again at the expense of previous holder Terry Bates.

On the tough Rocquaine Circuit, involving a hard climb away from the coast before dropping back to the finish, he was always second best to race winner Stuart Le Noury who finished over three minutes ahead and not far off his best time for the course. Terry Bates time of 28.33 looked to be out of reach at the 2 miles point in 19.50, but the final mile is mostly downhill and flat, a far cry from the uphill first mile and Elliott managed to clip five seconds off the best time. The expected challenge from leading woman Donna Allan never came as the race was walked in the middle of a long training session for her, but she still came home in a good 30.07.

Fourth and fifth places went to Phil Lockwood who walked well to beat Kevin Le Noury, 31.45 to 32.40. At the back of the field Peter Beckerleg in his first race for a while got the better of Mick Le Sauvage, whilst Dave Dorey completed the result in 39.28.

Ninth Eric Waldron win for Stuart

Race winner Stuart Le Noury lapped the field as he strode to his ninth victory in the Eric Waldron trophy race over two miles. On a cold day with a strong wind blowing around the track, most walkers were down on expected times. Passing the one mile point in around 7.45 Stuart slowed in the second half to cross the line in 15.52, not too far off his best of 15.19 considering the conditions. Second place went to last years winner Rob Elliott in 18.45 with Donna Allan in third in 19.45.
