Race 8: 20km Road Walk - Sunday 1st July 2012, Les Amarreurs, Vale

Huge Personal Best for Stuart Le Noury
 
Stuart Le Noury removed almost seven minutes from his previous best time when crossing the line in 1.46.40 for the Heritage Group SWC Championships over 20 kilometres.

A fast start had him passing the five kilometres point in 25.26, leaving onlookers wondering how long he could keep going at that pace. As the laps went by in the 13 lap event, he held the pace for around 14 kilometres, after he had gone through 10 kilometres in 51.18, before starting to tire and losing a minute a lap for the final few.

A best time that will do his confidence a world of good in future distance races. Well behind was Phil Lockwood in 2.02.08, who looked uncomfortable for most of the race, but still considered it as a good training spin if nothing else!
Terry Bates in third place broke the old M60 Guernsey best time with his 2.10.17. Visiting walker Sean Pender from Enfield and Haringey, spent around 24 hours in Guernsey and finished in 4th place in 2.22.15, not too far ahead of Kevin Le Noury. Womens winner Jayne Le Noury, finishing only seconds behind her husband, walked a new personal best time, two and a half minutes quicker than before.

A 10 kilometres event, with a different start time, saw a return to walking after a few years absence, of Carl Thomson. He walked home in 50.55 with a solid performance. Mick Le Sauvage was second home. Rose Druckes was quickest of the women, ahead of Kay Coulson and Joanne Le Prevost.
