The Grizzly, Seaton, 02/04/2000

Generally acknowledged to be the hardest event on the calendar, and yet always over-subsrcibed many months in advance. Just two Blues this year, but Jenny Mills finished in the prizes yet again.

Paris Marathon, France, 09/04/2000

Tracy Lark and Liz Oke both decided to cross the Channel for a weekend away, and the small matter of 26.2 miles running. Liz finished in 4:38:24, with Tracy just behind in 4:38:54. Even though they only finished 30 seconds apart, they never saw each other throughout the race. What they did see, however, where hordes of cheating French, taking short cuts etc.!

Flora London Marathon, 16/04/2000

The annual flagship event of long distance running saw a good contingent of Blues travelling to London, some running for a fast time, others just to get around, still others raising large amounts for their favourite charity. Recent recruit Mike Feighan led the squad home, a fine run placing well inside the top 100 runners, with Simon Edney not far behind. Neil Paddon and Jeff Snell both cracked their personal bests, while for seven of our runners it was the first time over the magical distance of 26 miles, 385 yards, with the inspiration of the large crowds helping them home.
