Bob Wright Handicap Series Race 4

RWA Permit 9096-1

2 kilometres road walk 

Pleinmont, Guernsey

Beckerleg leads the way

Race winner Peter Beckerleg, easily held off the faster finishing Stuart Le Noury in the 2 kilometres out and back course held at Pleinmont. The windy conditions added to the hilly course made for a harder than usual race. Kevin Le Noury, losing out second place in the closing stages to son Stuart, heads the series with a one point advantage over Stuart moving into 2020 when the series resumes.

Fourth place went to Kay Coulson, ahead of Rob Elliott. Jayne Le Noury, still troubled by injury, held off Donna Allan for sixth. Stuart Le Noury had the fastest time of the day with 9.41, followed by Donna Allan and Rob Elliott with 12.13 and 12.16 respectively, both well down on what can normally be expected of them.

10 and 5 kilometres road walks

North Side, Vale, Guernsey

Two break the hour in 10 kilometres walk

Stuart Le Noury dominated the 10 kilometres walk as he cruised to a satisfying win in 52.30 on the four lap North Side circuit. With the shorter distance of 5 kilometres starting at the same time, he was still too fast for the winner of that event, as Rob Elliott crossed in 30.49. Stuart had passed his halfway point in 26.16. 

Donna Allan, in the 10 kilometres race, had started steadily and overtaken Rob Elliott after one kilometre and opened up a 40 metres lead, but slowed on the second lap giving Elliott a target as he closed the gap slightly as he neared his finish line. Donna hit her halfway point in 30.40. She picked up the pace on the third lap walking at close to the hour pace, with a 15.04 lap and then really pushed on to record a sub 14 minutes last lap to crack the hour mark with a final time of 59.42.

Third place in the 10 kilometres went to Kay Coulson in 1.16.07. In the shorter race, Kevin Le Noury finished second ahead of Peter Beckerleg and Mick Le Sauvage who tied for third place.

Win for Ellis Lockwood

DSC_0621Ellis Lockwood, the youngest in the field, made light work of those set off in front of him in the third race of the Bob Wright Handicap Series to cross the line first in the one mile race.

Mick Le Sauvage set an inaugural Guernsey age best for the M80 age group, with Rob Elliott clipping less than a second from Terry Bates age group best track time.

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.

With wind and drizzle greeting the walkers for the four lap race, times were a little down to those expected with Stuart Le Noury and Donna Allan recording the fastest mens and womens times respectively. Stuart dipped under 26 minutes with Donna timed at 30.36.

Church to Church 2019

Filed under: Uncategorized — sarnia @ 3:48 pm

Donna close up 4 milesSunday September 1st 2019

Sarnia Walking Club

19.4 miles Church to Church walk

South Esplanade, St Peter Port, Guernsey

RWA Permit 9064-1

Donna (pictured left after 4 miles) closes in on Island Church to Church best

Only a small field contested this years annual traditional Church to Church walk over a distance of 19.4 miles, held on a hot morning with a welcome breeze, with the high spot of the day being Donna Allans 3.25.18 second place overall, only bettered by mens winner Stuart Le Noury.

This time was only 8 seconds down on the Island best set by Jenny Elliott back in 1984 and would surely have been a lot closer if she had not been hampered by the Sea Front Sunday road closure in the final mile and dodging the big crowds there, with only a tight exit before the final few hundred yards to the finish at Havelet Bay. Donnas time was a huge improvement on her first walk back in 2016 when she recorded 4.04.35 and made up for her missing last years walk on doctors instructions.

Stuart Le Noury 4 milesAs expected the mens winner for the fourth time was Stuart Le Noury (pictured left at 4 miles) in 3.20.14, perhaps down on what he expected to do. At the five miles point after tackling the hard first few uphill miles he found himself with a minutes lead over Jim Ball passing in just under 50 minutes. Donna, taking it a little easier at the start went through in around 53 minutes. At the half way point by the Little Chapel Stuarts 1.42 clocking showed he had extended his lead to around three minutes. Jim Ball was still in the frame but slowing. Moving up the climb at the Monnaie at 11 miles and then the long downhill section to the Friquet and on to the Vale Church 15 miles point Stuart continued to extend his lead going through in 2 hours 30 minutes with plenty of breathing space should he slow down over the final miles. Slow down he did , dropping down to over 11 minute miles with Donna Allan chasing hard. It would have taken a major falling apart for Stuart not to take the overall win, with Donna closing the gap to five minutes come the final reckoning…with that agonising few seconds short of the island best.

Third place went to past winner Jim Ball from Southampton who on little race walking the past year suffered in the final third of the walk, slowing down to pedestrian pace, before crossing the line in just under 3.43.

Fourth place went to another past winner, local walker Rob Elliott. Another one short on training going in to the race, starting steadily and keeping to a fairly even pace throughout to finish in 3.49.

Visitor for the second year Stephen Cartwright finished just outside the four hours barrier and around five minutes slower than last year. Regular visitor from Surrey Walking Club, David Hoben finished a further nine minutes behind, but well ahead off his 2018 walk.

Ed Shillabeeer finishLast man to finish was eighty year old Ed Shillabeer (pictured right). Theres no stopping this man. Ed has won this event four times with a best of 2.40.58 but continues to return to walk on one of his favourite course. His time this year was over two hours slower and was a struggle and comes only weeks after walking 68 miles in 20 hours in the Isle Of Man. Then he was straight to the airport to return home to be at work tomorrow morning. A race walking legend.

Local Phil Lockwood pulled out of the race around Torteval Church with sickness, whilst Colin Bradley, another past winner and sub 2.45 man for the course walked the first 4 miles in 75 minutes, aided by his walking sticks.

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.
