Bideford Half Marathon, 02/03/2003

Yet again we attracted a record field for what is the biggest race ever held in North Devon - approx. 660 entrants and over 580 finishers. This year the race was sponsored by R T Marke & Co., Chartered Accounts, Devonshire Pine Ltd, and for the first time Tarka Springs. Kevin took off from about the 2 mile mark, and despite Peter and Jon giving chase the further he went, the further he won by. In the ladies race, unattached runner Maddie Horton from Berrynarbor got the better of Tiverton Harrier Caroline Hewitt. The other BAAC runner to collect first place was Elizabeth Higgins, who repeated her age group victory of last year.

Kit-Kat SIAB International Cross Country, Dublin, 29/03/2003

Kirsty Hamilton repeated her excellent run in the English Schools cross-country, finishing 7th overall and 4th English finisher, picking up a gold medal as part of the victorious England team.

With Emily Pidgeon not running, Non Stanford of Wales and Danielle Walker (England) were the pre-race favourites, and these two broke away early. As Walker dropped away, Kirsty led the chase back to try to catch her, but a pack of some six athletes slotted in behind her. Kirsty's hard work helped the others, as in the middle part of the race she dropped down to 8th, with Katie Richardson (England) moving third, clearly being suited by the flat, fast conditions, followed by two more England girls and the first Scottish and Irish athletes. Kirsty's strength in the finish showed through as she passed team-mate Stephanie Twell on the run-in, and almost also caught another English runner Laura Dowsing, who had also just beaten her at Brighton. Stanford held on to win easily, with Walker just holding off Richardson for second place. Overall, Kirsty had a superb experience, and is looking forward to trying to catch the selectors eye again next season.
