We picked three first prizes in the age categories, two coming from our very own Torritonians Bill and Maurice, with Ben Oke being the other winner in the junior category. At the head of the field, Dave Braunton finished second, but couldn't handle an in-form home athlete, Stuart Hearn.

30th Real Berlin Marathon, Germany, 28/09/2003

The Blues message was taken to Germany by an intrepid group of sixteen adventurers, the thirteen shown below plus the support crew of Glen Martin, Barry Cousins and Steve Sanders. The race was won in world record time by Kenyan Paul Tergat, but the organisation was a notch or two below the superb efforts in London. Of our runners, Dave B led the group home on his debut, with Jimmy next. Others who ran the distance for the first time were Derek and Sam, plus Stuart and Michelle ran huge personal bests. The whole group would like to thank Jimmy for organising the trip, and Stuart and Jimmy (again) for doing the driving.
