Barnardo's Cardiff Marathon, Cardiff, 01/09/2002

Nice to see a new marathon added to the calendar. Neil and Jimmy have been training really well this summer, and it paid off with two excellent runs. Neil beat the magical three hour barrier for the first time, and Jim missed out by a heartbreaking eight seconds, but was compensated by a huge pb.
15 Neil Marke 2:55:44 pb
24 Jim Murray 3:00:08 pb
216 Paul Jennings 3:41:36

South of England Relays, Aldershot, 28/09/2002

The vet men made a gallant effort to defend the title they lifted last year, just coming up one place short. Two changes from last year saw newly turned veteran Bill, and Alec (at the last minute) come in to the squad. As would be expected of a silver medal winning side, all ran excellently. The senior men also had to make late changes, bringing in two of the vets who had already run, and finished a respectable 33rd.

17th Deane DLO 10K, Taunton, 29/09/2002

Unseasonably hot weather for late September didn't hurt Stuart Philps as he led our large squad home in an excellent 5th place with a new pb, with Mark only half a minute back also in the top ten. Personal bests also for Bob, Kay and Annette. Shame there wasn't a team award, as we would have won it.

South of England Relays, Aldershot, 29/09/2002

Anything the vet men can do, the senior ladies can do also. The quartet of Lucy Owen, Maddy Clarke-Gay, Helen Purdy and Vicky Pincombe excelled themselves to claim second place behind a crack Bedford & County outfit. Vicky's time was 5th fastest overall on the day.

Memorial 10K, Camberley, 29/09/2002

The McLarens stayed in the Home Counties after the relays on the Saturday, taking in this event on the Sunday and both were rewarded in different ways. Alec set a new personal best of 36:02, and while Jamie has beaten his time of 42:00 before, he picked up 1st U/21.
