New Years Day Two Bridges, Bideford, 01/01/2001

Numbers recovered from last year's blip and a good race ensued. Andrew Ingle won the race for the third time in four years, by eight seconds from Bill. Simon Edney came third, but had the satisfaction of leading his team to the first prize, ably backed up by Charles Davis, Linda Phillips, and first on the 2 mile course Fern Dymond. Controversy erupted at the start when four runners were still drawing the teams when the gun went off, leaving Clive, Neil, Stuart and Richard to race on their own, 10 minutes later. The four times were then slotted in to the order.

Devon Cross Country Championships, Bicton, 07/01/2001

Nine medals was our haul this year - three of which were gold, all of them in team competitions. The senior men led the goldrush, pipping Plymouth Harriers to return the bronze statuette to the Blues' trophy cabinet. The Under 13 Boys team collected gold by a massive margin, and the senior ladies weighed in too. Silver was claimed by Joe and Vicky (leading the winning teams), the ladies veteran team emulating their place of last year, and the U/15 Boys team, while Lorraine Clements completed her full set of medals by claiming 3rd O/35, with the other bronze going deservedly to Stefan.
Team results - U/13 Boys - 1st, U/15 Boys - 2nd, Sen Men - 1st, Sen Ladies - 1st, Vet Ladies 2nd. All other age group teams were incomplete.

Westward Cross Country League, Bideford, 14/01/2001

An excellent turnout for out home fixture. The Under 13 Boys led the way by placing three in the first five for an easy team victory, with Arron and Luke also claiming first team despite only having two runners. The Under 15 Boys and Senior Men also packed well to claim second team. Helen led the ladies home in second, but as she ran for South Devon in an earlier fixture she cannot count for our team yet. Several top tens, including for the first time Roxanne and Emma in the U/15 girls.

Braunton 10, Braunton, 21/01/2001

After Stuart Hearn of Torrington led the field away, a pack of Blues hunted him down. By halfway, Andrew Ingle and Jon Ward had caught him and drew away, Andrew winning in a superb time given the difficulty of the course. With 7 in the first 8 we took the team title easily (our "B" squad would have come second), with the ladies also claiming first team, led by Helen who came second lady overall. Age group winners - Simon Edney, Andy Lane, Maurice Cockwill and Liz Oke

Devon Sportshall Championships, Dawlish, 21/01/2001

This meeting also counted as the third fixture in the Sportshall League. We picked up one county championship - Luke Carroll grabbing the U/11 Boys 2 laps by one tenth of a second. Luke narrowly missed a second title, coming second in the 2 lap hurdles. Misha Sweeney was our other dual medallist - picking up an excellent couple of bronzes.

Southern Cross Country Championships, Parliament Hill, 27/01/2001

Almost like the old days with a coach load of seniors joining the early bird juniors leaving at 4:30 in the minibus. Incessant rain over the preceeding 24 hours made the course very, very muddy, and times were well down even amongst the highest class athletes.

Andrew Ingle was our highest finisher in the year, after being in the top half dozen early on, he held on for 35th place amongst nearly a thousand senior men. Mike Spencer also made the top 100 as the team finished 16th. Next best was Helen Parkinson, while the Southcombe siblings both made the top 60 in their resepective events. Reece performed a similar feat in the U/13s, but this race was marred by a marshalling error meaning that the athletes ran barely a mile. The only junior race in which we had a full team was the U/15 boys - the quartet led by Mark came in 25th

Luppitt Lollop, Luppitt, 28/01/2001

14.6 miles over the Blackdown Hills, very undulating, and worse mud (and other substances) than the Torrington Christmas Caper. Not much fun you would think but it gets more popular each year - nearly 350 runners this year.
