New Years Day Two Bridges, Bideford, 01/01/2002

A crisp, dry morning for the annual "run the hangover off" event. Peter Hockin retained his unbeaten record since turning veteran by holding off Simon Edney, with last year's victor Andrew Ingle third. First lady home was, to no-one's surprise, Vicky Rolfe. Only six juniors ran the two mile course, with Leanne Glover holding off Chloë Bright in the last half mile. In the team event the teams were closely matched, with the eventual winners being Andrew Ingle, Dave Bowden, Shaun Wilson and Chloë Bright.

Westward League Cross Country, Bideford, 13/01/2002

After all the dry weather this winter, it was typical that the rain should come when we host our round of the Westward League. We started off with the Ladies race, where we recorded a remarkable 1-2-3. Also combined with this was the U/17 Boys where Mark Davies had a superb 3rd. Nice to see no less than seven U/13 Girls running for us, where Callie, Leanne and Katie made up the team all recording personal best positions. In the senior men's race, Peter ran a good race in the wrong footwear to beat Bill, Ricky and Steve all in the top ten.

Braunton 10, Braunton, 20/01/2002

This course is tough enough in good conditions, but with the wind and rain against for the last 3 miles or so, it was even worse this time. Barry Reynolds of Exeter claimed first prize ahead of a phalanx of Blues taking places 2-3-4-5. Vicky improved her ladies course record she set 12 months ago. In fact, we had the first four ladies with new recruit Maddy , Helen and Vicky R all in the top 20 overall. The race attracted 192 finishers

Broadclyst Bimble, Broadclyst nr Exeter, 27/01/2002

Replacing the Luppit Lollop, this was another typical South West Road Runners production. Wonder why they aren't called the South West Muddy, Ploughed Field Runners ? Anyway, the promised mud was there in bucketloads with the weekend rain, making this a very tough event.
