Guernsey walker Stuart Le Noury walked to a new personal level in the annual 19.4 miles
Church to Church road walk, when he removed over 16 minutes from his previous
best time, to come home first in 3.05.54, writes Rob Elliott.
As Nourey crossed the line he only just had
time to look back and see his two nearest competitors only that final straight
away. Jock Waddington and Vinny Lynch, who bettered his previous best time,
crossed the line together in second place in 3.06.43. These three walkers took
home the Rothschild Open Mens awards.
The leading woman, Marie Jackson, from the Isle of Man, also won the event last year and she was followed by Cath Duhig
from Ryston Runners..
Sean Hands succumbed
to injury at 10 miles.
