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

As always, a fine show of Blues vests at Taunton - two in the full marathon (warm-ups for London ?) and no less than thirty three over the shorter distance. Simon and Rob both had good runs in the 26.2 miler, while over 13.1 Dave and Elizabeth were first Blues to finish for the second successive year.

Good Friday Relays, Bideford, 09/04/2004

Over a hundred runners lined up in warm conditions that matched last year's fine weather. Twenty-one teams of five were made by the usual combination of seeding and random draw, no one team immediately jumping out as the favourite, doutbless a number of those in some teams fancied their chances. The building work to the side of Victoria Park meant a slight detour, so individual times would be a few seconds slower than in previous years. The format turned out to be (with a few adjustments for personal circumstances) - slower man (2 laps), junior (1 lap), lady (2 laps), older junior (2 laps) and faster man (2 lap)

Refugee from North Devon AC, Kirsty Hamilton, fresh from representing England Schools cross-country six days earlier took an immediate lead, and it was to prove a lead team "O" were never to relinquish. With a 16 second lead after the first lap, she increased this to 19" on the second circuit leading home Neil Paddon for "M" and then Steve Clements leading a closely grouped field.

On to the second leg, with Lisa Massimo taking over in the lead the juniors over one lap and she ran a well-paced leg to keep pole position. Behind her, team "U" had been lifted into second after Kelly Pearce passed five others with "A" climbing even faster thanks to Joe Kelly taking them from 15th to 3rd. Joe's time was the fastest boy, while Kelly's time was only matched by another North Devon refugee, Leanne Glover.

Ladies on the third leg, Kerry Hayden taking over in first place, and with her running the fastest of the twenty-one runners on that leg her team's position was consolidated. Not much change in the positions behind, except that "A" had passed "U" thanks to the efforts of Amanda Hetherington, while Tracey Wilson and Carol Davies picked up a couple of positions in the midfield.

The older juniors then took centre stage, led away by James Bolton. His time of 12:40 was sufficient to draw away from the chasers - a lead of 20 seconds when he took over was transformed into one of 1m40s at the end. Lapped runners made working out the positions confusing, but Maria Clements had held second for "A", barely ahead of Adam Glover who had a fine leg for "P" and Craig Bellew for "T" whose 11:45 was only challenged by Dan Mapp's 11:47 and Shaun Wilson's 11:50

On to the final leg, with the fast men with Stuart Philps being given an unassailable lead ahead of Mark Davies. Third and fourth placed Bill O'Donnell and Mike Mears both made up ground, and passed Mark, but were unable to make any significant impression on Stuart as team "O" romped home a minute clear. Peter Hockin again had the fastest time, his 9:42 being clearly quicker than everyone else.

Flora London Marathon, London, 18/04/2004

Better weather for running than watching the 23rd Flora London Marathon, with spells of light drizzle. Mixed emotions for our runners - with most of the more experienced marathoners ending up slightly disappointed, while the bulk of the first-timers had excellent runs and were justifiably delighted.

Race For The Roses, Portland, USA, 18/04/2004

Simon Lacey encountered this race while on a snowboarding holiday in Oregon. It looks like he was the only non-American of the 1164 finishers - our man ran with an American friend for the first half before picking it up to finish 138th in a time of 1:39:29.
