Dominating from the start he lapped the field to finish in 15.23, only four seconds behind his personal best time set a few years ago. Second home was Rob Elliott, himself a multiple winner of this event many years back. 

Third place went to Donna Allan in 19.01, adding a new Guernsey age best to her recent collection. The time was the third fastest by a local woman, behind times set by Jenny Elliott and sister Kathryn Tostevin in this now rarely walked distance.

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.

2 kilometres road walk 

Pleinmont, Guernsey

Lockwood takes the honours

Phil Lockwood held on to win the fourth race in the Bob Wright Handicap Series from the faster finishing Rob Elliott when he crossed the line seven seconds ahead in the 2 kilometres event. The race, held in good conditions on the undulating car free out and back course from the Imperial had the walkers working hard.

Second placed Elliott gained a few points in the final metres as he overtook Peter Beckerleg and Mick Le Sauvage. 

Fifth placed Donna Allan, not quite at the speed of her recent races still broke the Guernsey Age best time held by Julie Lawlor from many years ago with an actual time of 12.27. 

After four races Donna leads the series from Peter Beckerleg, with Stuart Le Noury in third place. The series resumes in 2017 with three more races. Olga Le Noury held off father in law Kevin Le Noury back in seventh and eighth places. Last to finish was Stuart Le Noury with his 11.11 actual time recording the fastest time of the day.

Special mention to Dave Dorey in fifth place. Club stalwart Dave, sometime during this year reached the milestone of 50 years as a competitor in race walking. He competed for Guernsey in the 1970 Commonwealth Games over 20 miles and has won the prestigious Guernsey Church to Church walk . At his best he walked a sub 7 minutes mile. His 10 miles time stood at 80.15, 20 kms at 1.42.28 and 50 kms at 4.42.10.

A profile on Dave Dorey and his achievements can be found at https://walkguernsey.wordpress.com/sportsman-champions-profiles/dave-dorey/.

The next walk is on Sunday December 11th at 9.00 am. The walk is over 815 metres up the Val des Terres hill climb. All are welcome to come and have a go. Details from Jayne Le Noury, lenouryjedburgh@cwgsy.net.

Big personal best time for leading woman

Donna Allan (photo) continues to take big steps forward since taking up race walking. In her latest race over 10 kilometres at North Side, held in good conditions after the storms of the previous 12 hours, she crossed the line in 1 hour 3 minutes and 13 seconds to remove almost three and a half minutes off her previous best time. 

A good day for the women saw Olga Le Noury and Jayne Le Noury  both walking quicker than their last race. The winner of the race was Stuart Le Noury, walking well up on his last race to finish in 54.33. He had a clear win from Rob Elliott back in second place.The third man Phil Lockwood was separated by the leading woman and finished fourth overall.

Kevin Le Noury was another to perform above expectations, with a time a couple of minutes up on expected . The other walkers to finish Peter Beckerleg and Mick Le Sauvage walked to form with Marie Macdonald having to record a  “did not finish”.

Stuart Le Noury will race the London marathon next year, taking the place that the Sarnia Walking Club are entitled too as members of “englandathletics”.

On a personal note (Rob Elliott) . Woke up this morning to see this link

It is from the 1982 Commonwealth Games in which I raced 30 kms in 2.24.28. Turned up for this 10 kms race this morning at North Side to find one of the roads closed to cars and pedestrians. So we used the extended course on which the Guernsey walkers used for the trials back then.

Back then I averaged 48.20 for a final 2.25.00 course and Guernsey record. Today I slipped back to 61 minutes!
