"Extra Handicap", Bideford, 01/04/2001

With so many races cancelled due to the outbreak of foot & mouth disease, we attempted to fill the gap with an extra race over the standard handicap course. 56 seniors ran, with some of the juniors running the course as a relay. Jon Ward came home first in a superb time of 26:58, over half a minute ahead of Andrew Ingle. Jon & Ricky came in almost together a further 30 seconds or so back. First lady was Helen, just under a minute ahead of new recruit Zelah, with Lorraine over a minute further back in third. One promising sign was the high quality running of some our juniors - particularly Arron and Mark.

Nike South of England 12 Stage Relay, Milton Keynes, 08/04/2001

An excellent all-round effort saw the club claim 15th place in the Southern 12 Stage, at one point after two legs we were even in third place. Andrew's time stood up to be 4th best overall in the short legs all day, with Ricky also continuing his latest comeback with 27th. On the long legs, Jon's lead-off was 15th overall, with Bill O'Donnell next best in 93rd. The overall finishing time was 4:35:00

Falmouth 10K, 08/04/2001

The enforced absence from racing due to Foot & Mouth Disease clearly hasn't brunted Jenny Mills' pace, claiming 3rd lady overall and 1st O/50 in the first road race in Cornwall for 8 weeks. Her time was 41:23. Peter Rigler is on the comeback trail after a spell of illness. He came 28th in 39:36



Good Friday Relays, Bideford, 13/04/2001

An excellent turnout for our annual round-the-park relays - 105 runners were divided into 21 teams of 5. A well matched first leg, with Andrew Wilson coming out on top, from Luke Evans and Andy Watts. Edward Siviter gallantly held on for team "D" throughout the second leg, but as Gordie took over for the third leg, the opposition was looming. Kirsty Hamilton took over for team "H" near the end of their first lap, but Ben Oke (team "J") overhauled her on the second loop. It was a lead "J" were not to lose. Bob Wootton took over a single second up, and increased it to 43 by the finish, with Chloë Bright moving up to second. Lorraine Clements was left to run the glory leg, which she did very well, but not without a fright as Andrew Ingle hauled team "A" into contention with a remarkable 8:54 run, moving from 9th to 2nd in the process. His last "victim" was Clive Bright, who put up a gallant fight to hold Andrew, but his team "I" had to settle for third.

Flora London Marathon, 22/04/2001

Another excellent turnout of Blues for the biggest athletic event in the country. Our two new recruits, Vicky Pincombe and Zelah Morrall both started from the elite ladies start, and finished in superb positions and times. Vicky indeed was 6th British lady home at her debut at the distance. Amongst the masses, Steve Davis led our squad in, with Tony and Ray the next best. Stuart knocked nearly an hour of his previous marathon time, while Jim also improving significantly on last year's effort. Our other marathon "virgins", Clive Bright and Steve Sanders thoroughly enjoyed the experience, and have certainly learned a lot about the distance to take into account next time!

First BAAC Handicap, Bideford, 25/04/2001

The first of this years race series saw the biggest turnout for a number of years. Amongst the juniors, Kirsty, on her first attempt took maximum points ahead of birthday girl Fern and first boy Shaun. Jane was the clear leader of the ladies race, with first vet Kirsteen coming in next, while in the men's class Joe (another first timer ahead of the handicapper) was over a minute clear. Those who ran a marathon on Sunday (Zelah Morrall, Paul Jennings and Jim Murray) were all given an extra 3 minutes, but it seems as if they did not need it as they all ran superbly.

The times below are the handicapped times - take the starting handicap shown in the third column off to arrive at the runner's actual time.
