New Years Day Two Bridges, Bideford, 01/01/2004

2004 dawned with a rather windy but thankfully dry morning for the first race of the year. Andrew Ingle got away from the rest of the field early and the further he ran, the further he won by with an eventual margin of 37 seconds to the second place Peter Hockin. Kirsty Hamilton clocked the fastest ladies time, marginally quicker than Elizabeth Higgins, and amongst the juniors running the two mile course, Dan Mapp led from the off and held off the challenges of Craig Bellew and Adam Glover. When the team prizes had been worked out, team E emerged victorious, so congratulations go the three Okes - Ben, Jessica and Andy together with Simon Lacey

Devon Cross Country Championships, Exeter, 04/01/2004

The "Bronze runner" is back home! For the ninth time in the last ten runnings, our senior men’s squad emerged victorious from the Devon Cross Country Championships. To go with their overall win, we picked up three more gold medals, the veteran men’s team, the under 13 Girls team, and individually Kay Eastwood in the ladies O/55 category. Jon Ward ran an excellent race to finish second and head the senior men’s team to their triumph, while also in that race Peter Hockin took 2nd O/40, Bill O’Donnell 3rd O/40 and Andy Jewell 3rd O/45. Helen Parkinson had earlier finished third senior lady (and led our three lady squad to second team), and the U/17 boys team were a close second to a strong North Devon AC team.

South of England Cross Country Championships, Parliament Hill, 25/01/2004

The men's team closed out in 16th overall, of over 100 teams.
