Good walk for race winner

Stuart Le Noury recorded his best time for 5,000 metres for a good few years as he ducked under 25 minutes for an easy win over Rob Elliott. Third place went to Phil Lockwood who continues to get back towards his old form, removing another minute off his last race at the distance. All competitors managed to improve on their last race, making the most of the warm evening conditions.

Remarkably in the handicap section of the event the finishing order was the same as in the actual race.

Stuart Le Noury leads the way

With a time slower than would normally be expected, Stuart Le Noury had another easy win over 10 kilometres in the fifth race of the Heritage Group Championships. Having walked the around the island 39 miles non competitive walk the day before, he was perhaps more cautious today. Rob Elliott finished in second place, slightly quicker than in his last race, with Donna Allan taking third place overall and leading woman.

Donna was the other walker in the race having taken part in the longer event the day before. Phil Lockwood, another quicker than his last race continues to improve after suffering with injury not so long ago.

Kay Coulson, the second woman held off Mick Le Sauvage for fifth place with Dave Dorey completing the line up finishing in just over 80 minutes.

In the handicap section of the race Kay Coulson finished in first place ahead of Phil Lockwood.

Olga Le Noury, only a few seconds short of her best ever time, set off with Kevin Le Noury and turned the tables position wise with last weeks walk, to beat her father in law by a second.

Mick Le Sauvage held off the faster finishing Rob Elliott for 6th place, with race sponsor and visitor Sean Pender finishing in eighth place. Fastest time of the day was set by the next man home Stuart Le Noury with his 9.23, with last man home John Dedman completing the line up.

Huge personal best for Kevin Allan

A hot Sunday morning greeted the race walkers for their 10 kilometres walk at Delancey. The performance of the day went to the man in 4th place Kevin Allan who improved his personal best time by seven minutes to finish in 1.14.17. He has showed steady progress in recent races around this distance and found himself within a minute of the third placed walker Kevin Le Noury.

The race winner as expected was Stuart Le Noury in 56.09, winning easily from Rob Elliott. An isolated Mick Le Sauvage was fifth in 1.18.03, with equal sixth place going to women Jayne Le Noury and Wendy Wilson a few minutes further back.

Donna Allan, after racing in the Brighton marathon the week before, walked with friend and first time competitor Cara De La Mare in 1.25.24.

Donna, race walking the marathon, finished in 5.10.39. An enthusiastic start saw her pass the 10 kilometres point in 59 minutes and the half marathon in an impressive 2.13.39. She was still going well through 25 kilometres in 2.42.39 before the going got tough, passing 30 kilometres in 3.23.39. The final miles were very hard going with Donna sticking to the task of finishing.

Another Sarnia walker, Phil Lockwood, missed the local event to take place in the London marathon, finishing in 5.40.28, walking even splits after passing half way in 2.48.59.

Le Noury retains traditional Channel Island Ceramics Chilcott Cup

Stuart Le Noury, walking well within his capabilities after time out with a recent injury, retained the Channel Islands Ceramics Chilcott Cup over a distance of 7 miles. Overhauling early leader Rob Elliott around the 3 miles distance on the point to point coastal course between Albecq and North Side he moved away easily to cross the line in just under 65 minutes. 

Elliott dropped another position after 5 miles as Donna Allan, after a customary slow start, went by after passing that mark in 49.30 and moving swiftly ahead to take another two minutes out of him before the finish. Her time of 67.25 was an improvement of two minutes on her previous best time set last year when she lost out to a sprint finish to the man she had just overtaken. This time was also just over a minute slower than the Guernsey Womens record.

Win number 12 for Elliott

Rob Elliott secured his 12th win in the Channel Island Ceramics Eric Waldron trophy when winning in almost the slowest winning time in the long history of the 2 miles event. Absent from the start line was current club champion Stuart Le Noury who is out of action for a time with a stress fracture and would have been otherwise attempting 8 wins in a row.

Elliott led from start to finish to record 18.28 after reaching halfway in 9.11. Close behind in a new personal best time was leading woman Donna Allan in 18.46, breaking her previous best of 19.01.

Kevin Le Noury claimed third place in 21.47, closely followed by second woman home Olga Le Noury. Peter Beckerleg, Wendy Wilson and Kevin Allan were in close contention for much of the race before spitting up in the latter stages. Stalwarts Mick Le Sauvage and Jayne Le Noury were next home followed by past winner of the race Dave Dorey.

The next race in the Channel Island Ceramics sponsored traditional races is the 7 miles Chilcott Cup raced between Albecq and North Side.

The man behind the trophy can be found below. Written few years ago.

 Who is Eric Waldron? Follow the link to a profile: http://walkguernsey.wordpress.com/sportsman-champions-profiles/eric-waldron/

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.
