Spidernet Pafos Half Marathon/10K, Pafos, Cyprus, 04/03/2001

What lengths some people will go to to get a race! With the Bideford Half Marathon cancelled, the only Blues in action were many miles away, in Cyprus. Peter Hockin led our group home with a superb win in the 10K, ahead of Brett who was "guesting" for our team. Further back, Alan Cox took 1st O/45, while Charles continued his renaissance with 2nd O/65. Tony Andrews was our only runner to brave the half marathon

Tsada Village Run, Tsada, Cyprus, 06/03/2001

As last year, two days after the Pafos races, our crew travelled up to the mountains to a 7.5KM village race. The best from the marathon and half, some very strong Germans and Russians took the race apart, the winning time being 25:27. No surprise that Peter led our contingent home, with Coxy having another excellent race only 76 seconds back.

Devon Sportshall League Fixture 5, Dawlish, 11/03/2001

The final fixture of the season, with overall trophies also at stake. First things first though, so, on the day we picked up five first places. Dwayne Bowden maintained his 100% record over 4 & 6 laps, while the other winners were Hayley Wilson, who collected her first ever victory thanks to an excellent sitting throw, Misha Sweeney who had got the meeting off to a superb start by also winning the sitting throw in the Under 10s, and Luke Carroll (back to top form over 2 laps).
Overall, we returned home with thirteen medals. To no-one's surprise but his own (!) Dwayne took two overall first places, while most of other successes also came in pairs. Misha took a pair of thirds (Sitting Throw and Vertical Jump), as did Chloë Bright (Speed Bounce & 4 laps). Three athletes picked up a second and a third - Reece Woolgar (2nd high jump, 3rd Standing Triple Jump), Luke Carroll (2nd 2 laps and 3rd 2 lap hurdles), and Michael Bayliss (2nd Javelin, 3rd Sitting throw). The final individual trophy winner was Matthew Cawsey who was rewarded for consistent performances all winter with third in the standing long jump.
