Taunton Marathon / Half Marathon, Taunton, 06/04/2003

Paul Jennings was the Blues only representative over the full marathon distance, finishing about a third of the way in the field in 3:41:14, very similar to his last two marathon times. Over the shorter distance, not perhaps the depth you usually see in this race, but that can take nothing away from the first Blues man / woman to finish - Dave Braunton and Elizabeth Higgins, who is really running well at the moment, and Heardy ran his fastest half time for 11 years. Also welcome to Hugh, running his first race for the club.

Eleven Blues took on the challenge of the 23rd Flora London Marathon. Peter Hockin led the group home for the second successive year, just missing the top 100 overall. Both Chris and Jeff broke the three hour barrier, while most of the others were very pleased with their times and the experience of competing in the same event as Paula Radcliffe broke the World Record.

Good Friday Relays, Bideford, 18/04/2003

Twenty-three teams of four this year, and excellent if warm conditions. As the teams were announced, team "A" immediately became warm favourites, with "bandit" Andrew Wilson somehow being included as a first leg runner. The Bandit had already built up a 26 second lead after one lap, which he increased to 38 at the end of his lap. What a Bandit !. "G" were second through Adrian Vanstone, with junior Dan Mapp for "I" close behind. On to the second leg, the juniors over one lap and Ali Clements showed his pedigree to increase the "A" lead to 40 seconds. Another son of good runners, James Bolton, helped "B" into second with "W" showing in third through Daniel Richard. Daniel's 5:54 was the best on this leg, with Hayley Wilson fastest girl in 7:14 with four others within seven seconds of Hayley's time. Ladies on the third leg, and with Lorraine Kenneally being drawn for "A" there was never likely to be any change in the overall lead, and so it proved with Lorraine taking 12:55. Laura Fisher was the fastest overall lady (12:41) to move "I" back into contention, and "B" were still there through Kerry Hayden. On to the final leg, with the real speed merchants, being led off by Carl Holliman. Carl, running scared knowing Peter Hockin wouldn't be far behind ran excellently to clock 10:37 (fourth best overall on the day). Peter's second fastest time of the day (9:32) brought team "P" up to the runner-up spot, with Ollie winning the battle of the Gilmore's with brother Ben to take third. Andrew Ingle (no suprises there) produced the fastest overall time over the two laps - a superb 9:03 Oh, and did I mention Andrew Wilson was a bandit ?

First BAAC Handicap, Bideford, 23/04/2003

An almost record turnout of 93 athletes for the first of this year's handicap race series. In the junior event, Jessie Giddy won at her first attempt, holding off a flying Kirsty Hamilton in the finishing straight. Also a first-timer winning the men's event, with Terry Hodgson and Dave Stuart having it between them with Terry just getting the victory. The London marathon training seems to have led to a resurgence in Liz Oke's running, as she clocked her fastest time for years to come home first lady. As ever, the first race involves a lot of guesswork in the setting of the handicaps, but hopefully that will be sorted out for the second event.

The times below are the handicapped times - take the starting handicap shown in the third column off to arrive at the runner's actual time.
