Championship 4

10 miles road walk

Pleinmont to Lancresse, Guernsey

Donna beats Island Best time

Donna Allan walked the fastest local womans time in the 4th race of the Sarnia Walking Club Championships on the point to point coastal course from Pleinmont to Lancresse over 10 miles. Her finishing time of 1 hour 36 minutes and 50 seconds was over a minute quicker than the time set by Jenny Elliott in 1999. The Allcomers best set by Cath Reader a few years earlier remained out of touch , but only by a minute.

Walkers started in misty conditions which gave way to warm conditions in the final miles. Positions were sorted out early on with Stuart Le Noury the overall winner in 1.26.50. Second place went to Donna with Rob Elliott in third place.

Phil Lockwood was a little down on his time of last year in fourth place, not far ahead of Kevin Le Noury.

Mick Le Sauvage, coming up to his 80th birthday in a few months time found the latter half of the race hard going, coming to a standstill and sit down on the nearby grass verge after his sub 2 hours 9 minutes effort.. Kay Coulson was the final walker to finish in 2 hours 15 minutes.

Donna Allan took the handicap honours from Kevin Le Noury, with Stuart Le Noury in third.

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.

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.

New Personal Best for Womens Champion

Donna Allan, the defending club champion strode to a new personal best time by almost a minute on a near perfect morning for racing. Whilst race winner Stuart Le Noury, not at his best today, was out on his own from the start, Donna was matching the pace set by eventual second man home Rob Elliott for half of the 16 laps course, before moving away over the final 5 kilometres. 

Le Noury, through half way in just under 26 minutes, had already forged a big lead with Donna through in 29.25 and Elliott a few seconds adrift in 29.35. Donna increased her pace to record a negative split time of 29.03 for the latter half as she crossed the line in 58.28. Elliott, whose target for the day was to once again get under the hour, managed the task with a 59.36, his best time for almost four years and having the added bonus of another new Guernsey age best time, deposing Terry Bates of his age best for the second race in a row.

Donnas time is now the official Guernsey Record, although Katrine Thomson recorded quicker in 2008 but not ratified as a record due to insufficient officials on the day.

A close walk for fourth place was won by Phil Lockwood from Kevin Le Noury. At the back of the field Mick Le Sauvage hit a new milestone as he completed 8,000 miles of competitive race walking. Now nearing his 80th birthday, Mick started racing back in 1959 by completing the Guernsey Church to Church walk and has been an almost ever present since the formation of the Sarnia Walking Club. Remarkably, all but a handful of miles have been completed in Guernsey. As he now inevitably slows down he can think back to the days when he could walk the Church to Church in 3 hour 11 minutes, 10 miles in under 90 minutes, 7 miles in under an hour and todays distance in 53.13…..which would have pipped todays winner.

Elliott and Allan open Championships with a win.

Rob Elliott opened up the Sarnia Walking Club 2019 Championship with a winning 28.49 clocking over 5 kilometres, ahead of second placed and leading woman Donna Allan with 30.58. Elliott, celebrating his birthday and moving up into the M60 age group, surprised himself with his best time for three years and in the process broke the Guernsey age best time set by Terry Bates back in 2011. A seven minute dead time for the first of the four laps gave him a good start which was followed by laps of 7.13, 7.19 and 7.17.

Second and third places were taken by walkers who have entered marathons in the next few months, second placed Donna in London and third placed Phil Lockwood in Brighton. Fourth place went to Kevin Le Noury ahead of Kay Coulson who claimed the handicap win. Next home was Mick Le Sauvage , one race away from his 8,000 miles milestone with Dave Dorey bringing home the field. 

Kevin Allan and Jayne Le Noury both succumbed to injuries and completed around half the distance.

New Island record for Donna Allan

In the smallest starting line up for some time, Stuart Le Noury strode to another Chilcott Cup win over the 7 miles road course from Albecq to North Side. In near perfect conditions he went through 3 miles in 25.02 and 5 miles in just over 42 minutes to cross the finish line in 58.50. The walk of the day though went to second placed Donna Allan who removed well over two minutes from her previous best time and beat the womens record of 1.06.11 set by Jenny Tostevin back in 1985, when she finished in 1.05.03

Going through the 3 miles point in 27.37 and having a good middle section of the race to reach 5 miles in 46.26, the record was on with only another few miles to go. The five miles point in itself was the fastest Donna has walked and all indicates a renewal of her metric 10 kilometres best is due.

Third place went to Kevin Le Noury with his best 7 miles for a few years after Phil Lockwood pulled out of the race with chest problems. Mick Le Sauvage, now only a few races away from reaching 8,000 competitive miles finished in 1.25.08 for fourth place.

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.
