Avantis Championship Race 6

3,000 metres grass track walk

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

Sunday April 14th 2019

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.

The winning team for the Philadelphia Trophy walked to first, second and third places in the handicapped one mile road walk held on a blustery morning at Les Amarreurs. Jayne Le Noury, the first walker to start held on to her lead until the very final stages of the walk when team mate Peter Beckerleg edged ahead to take the individual win by the narrowest of margins. Rob Elliott completed the clean sweep as he moved into third place close to the finish and kept fourth man home Stuart Le Noury at bay by two seconds. 

The combined handicap times of the winning team, in which all walked quicker than their predicted times was 44 seconds too good for the second team home.

Jayne wins fathers trophy 

Jayne Le Noury won the Bob Wright handicap series trophy, named in honour of her father for the 5th time, after the seven race series finished with a 3 kilometres walk at Cambridge Park. In good weather conditions for the time of year, she couldn’t end the series with a race win but did enough to keep the eventual second placed walker overall a few points adrift. Stuart Le Noury, second overall didn’t quite walk through the field from his back marker position but had a good go at it managing third place in the race, falling short of catching race winner Peter Beckerleg and Mick Le Sauvage. 

Stuarts time of 14.36 was the quickest actual time of the day, passing second and third quickest Rob Elliott, 17.12 and Donna Allan 17.43 in the final 100 metres.There were plenty of positional changes in the final 100 or so metres with six walkers finishing within 21 seconds of each other. Five of those finishing in a 9 second gap.

Bob Wright Handicap Series Race Six

RWA Permit 9003-1

5 miles road walk

Lancresse to North Beach

Last to First

Race winner Stuart Le Noury walked through the field of walkers from his back marker position to claim a new personal best over the 5 miles distance. On a crisp winters morning with very little wind, he walked an actual time of 41.03 narrowly beating his old best time. Defending series winner Kevin Allan held on to second place holding off wife Donna who finished nine seconds behind. Donnas time of 47.49 was not too far off her time set last year which was the best time set by a Guernsey woman.

Rob Elliott, back in fourth closed down on Donna Allan who had a minutes handicap start in the first few miles, but could not close the final 10 or so seconds. As the gap slowly decreased Stuart Le Noury went past Elliott and then Donna, who upped her speed to hang on to Le Noury for a while and reopen the gap.

Fifth place went to Kevin Le Noury ahead of Kay Coulson who just managed to break the hour barrier as did Peter Beckerleg in seventh. Mick Le Sauvage was next home and edged closer to his 8,000th mile of race walking. Phil Lockwood brought the race to an end with his 57.33 clocking.

With one race to go and allowing for the two races that can be discarded in the seven race series, Jayne Le Noury, who had a very rare “did not finish” for todays race is set up as favourite with son Stuart the nearest challenger.

Third place went to Peter Beckerleg. Rob Elliott, back in sixth place walked the fastest time of the day with his 29.38, ahead of Donna Allan in 30.20.
