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|
Palmers Half Marathon, Exmouth, 01/09/2002
Only four Blues in action here this year, but we still came out on top! A superb Kevin Heywood run brought him victory
|6||Peter Hockin||1st O/40||1:15:09|
Back In 5, Torrington, 08/09/2002
If only the rain had held off for ten more minutes...
Denes Doone Run, 15/09/2002
A fine pair of runs for the Owen family - Martin taking third overall and second vet, with Lucy being 1st lady and within the top ten overall as well. Also nice to see Stump Bowden back, his first recorded race since New Year's Day. In the junior race we had 1-2, Kirsty Hamilton leading Luke Rigler home
Seaton Half Marathon, Seaton, 15/09/2002
Truro Half Marathon, Truro, 22/09/2002

|7||Kevin Heywood||1:10:12 pb|
|169||Jeff Harding||1:25:47 pb|
Newton Abbot Ladies 10K, Newton Abbot, 22/09/2002
Maddy Clarke-Gay destroyed the field of nearly 250 runners, winnning the event by over a minute and a half. Helen Parkinson narrowly missed out making it a 1-2 for the Blues, but held off Marilyn Blair to secure third.
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.
|5||Stuart Philps||36:32 pb|
|157||Bob Wotton||48:08 pb|
|169||Kaye Allen||48:54 pb|
|240||Annette Murray||53:18 pb|
Adidas Autumn Trail, Plymouth, 29/09/2002
With over 600 runners, this event has really taken off as probably the largest race in the South West autumn calendar. Four blues this year, led home by Simon
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.
