Back In 5, Torrington, 09/09/2001
Torrington AC are trying to build this event up to be a major event in the autumn calendar, and there were many voices of praise for the event and the course they have put together. Blues were of course to the fore, Simon Edney getting a well-deserved race win ahead of Bill and Kevin. As Simon was first home and first vet, a "first senior man" award was made to Bill. A similar circumstance happened in the ladies, with the first lady home, Lorraine also taking first vet. Our other age group winner was Alan Cox.
Reebok DMX Lake Vyrnwy Half Marathon, 16/09/2001
Court Canter, Arlington, 22/09/2001
This event was put off from its normal spring date due to the foot and mouth restrictions, but the National Trust was able to find this alternative date. Jon Parkinson and Martin Owen led the Blues to a 1-2, with a successful Parkinson family day being completed by Helen who was second in the ladies event.

Manchester Marathon, Manchester, 23/09/2001
Simon Edney appears to be in the form of his life at the moment, as he raced to 4th overall and 2nd vet over the course that is to be used for the 2002 Commonwealth Games. His time was 2:30:22. Steve Davis also competed, finishing 59th (2:53:15)
Ladies Only 10K, Newton Abbot, 23/09/2001
Only the mother/daughter combination of Jenny & Lorraine competed at Newton Abbot this year.
Truro Half Marathon, 23/09/2001
Apparently this event has changed it's course from the killer one used in years gone by, but times suggest it is still pretty tough.
Southern 4-Stage Vets Relays, Aldershot, 29/09/2001
Never before have we had a result like this. Our quartet of Mike Spencer, Peter Hockin, Simon Edney and Ricky Butler WON the South of England O/40 Relays. Mike led the squad off, coming in 9th taking 20:09 for the 6km loop. Peter then took off, recording our fastest time of the day (19:31) to lift the team into second. Simon, the eldest of the quartet at 42 (suggesting there's more to come in the future!) took us into a lead with 20:06, and then Ricky held the lead at a static 64 seconds running 20:25, the same time as his nearest challenger to complete a historic victory.
Deane DLO 10K, Taunton, 30/09/2001
No fewer than 22 Blues lined up in the wind and rain for the Taunton 10K, held this year over a new course due to remaining foot and mouth restrictions. No surprises for guessing that Vicky Pincombe collected another first lady prize, another in a superb sequence of runs in 35:47 for 9th overall. Andrew Wilson picked up 1st U/17 as he ran a well judged race for a pb, and Lorrie was a somewhat surprised winner of the O/40 ladies. Also well deserving of a mention was Charles, who set an inaugural O/70 record with a time that could well stand for years.

|22||Stuart Philps||37:11 =pb|
|33||Maurice Cockwill||2nd O/50||38:58|
