3 Kilometres road walk

Les Amarreurs, Vale, Guernsey

Easy win for Ian Richards

Winner Ian Richards was away from the off to secure an easy win in the Sarnia Walkings Clubs race over 3 kilometres at Les Amarreurs. A hot summers evening brought a number of competitors due to race the Church to Church down to the event. Grateful thanks to those from outside Guernsey that helped out with the judging.

Whilst winner Richards was racing to a fast 14.16 clocking and breaking Ed Shillabeers all comers age best in the process, Jim Ball and Rob Elliott were swopping race positions throughout before crossing the line together in 17.15 for second place.

Local walkers Kevin Le Noury and Peter Beckerleg claimed equal fourth place ahead of Mick Le Sauvage. Regular visitor David Hoben was close behind in 7th with Kay Coulson bringing up the rear with 22.25.

Church to Church

Filed under: Uncategorized — sarnia @ 3:41 pm

The annual Church to Church walk over 19.4 miles will be held on Sunday September 3rd starting at 9.00 am at Havelet Bay, South Esplanade. The walk takes in a circular course around the island passing all the Parish Churches and finishing back at South Esplanade and has been a regular event in the Guernsey sporting calendar since 1936.

The event is open to all with a generous time limit of 5 hours 30 minutes. The walk attracts those who just want to get around the course to those who wish to race it. All walkers will be welcome.

This year only a small field is expected with the local walkers joined by some regular visitors to Guernsey. Amongst them, past winners Ed Shillabeer from Plymouth and Jim Ball from Southampton will once again toe the line, with Ed quoted as “walking around my favourite course!”. Fine praise from a man that has walked in races worldwide.

Although past their glory years they still remain competitive. Pre race favourites are probably the young Jonathan Hobbs from Ashford who has won the event twice in recent years with a best time of just outside three hours and newcomer to the Guernsey event Ian Richards from Steyning. Ian should be well up for the challenge despite his 69 years. He has recently walked for second place in the European road walks championships in his age group over 20 kilometres , followed days later by a 20 miles in England in 3 hours 11 minutes, a similar distance to the Church to Church walk. He represented Great Britain in the 1980 Olympic Games.

Their could well be a new name on both the trophies for the first locals to finish as last years winners Stuart and Olga Le Noury will both be off the island when the walk starts.

The Sarnia Walking Club are also holding a 3 kilometres road walk at Les Amarreurs on a two lap course around Vale Church a few days before the Church to Church. This will be held on Friday September 1st at 6.30 pm. All welcome to walk.

Piette Trophy at Rocquaine

Sarnia Walking Club

Piette Trophy

3.8 miles handicap walk

Rocquaine Bay, Guernsey

From last to first

Scratch walker Dave Dorey may well have thought he was on his way to another Piette Trophy handicap win over 3.8 miles as he still led the race along the Rocquaine coast road with a couple of hundred yards still to go. Peter Beckerleg thought otherwise as he sidestepped Dave and overtook him to gain the lead and head for the win himself. But with the sound of fast closing footsteps he had to give second best to last man to start Stuart Le Noury who crossed the line first with an actual time of 30.34.

Beckerleg held on to second place with no response from the long time leader Dorey.

Last years winner Rob Elliott finished close to his time of last year but found himself back in fourth place. First woman home was Olga Le Noury beating her old best time and finishing in under 43 minutes, ahead of second woman Kay Coulson. Husband and wife Kevin and Jayne Le Noury finished in seventh and eight places.

The next walk is the 9th race in the Heritage Championships over a distance of 10 kilometres at Delancey Park at 9.30 am. It will soon be the longest walk in the clubs calendar when walkers take part in the annual Church to Church Walk over 19.4 miles on September 3rd.
