English Nationals - Nottinghamshire Champion and North of England Champs fifth placer Blue Haywood (Lincoln Wellington AC) could well be the smallest National Gold medallist in history, according to seasoned officials in the finishing funnels. Her assertion that she is 4ft 8in tall – “I measured myself with a tape” – looks like a bit of a tall story. But few bigger hearts have conquered as tough a course as this little cookie. “I think it’s amazing because I’ve never beaten several of these girls before,” she said after blazing such a trail that she led by 40m within the first kilometre and built an 11-second victory margin.

Blue, became her home county’s first-ever winner in this age group in the most positive manner possible. She led throughout the 3km race over tough hills and through clinging mud, and summed-up her success perfectly. The Nottinghamshire Champion explained that she improved from fifth place in the North of England Championships in January to become National Champion because “I tried to warm-up on my own. If I warm-up with my mates, I don’t do it properly.” Her performance thrilled her coach, Dave Humberstone, who said: “Her attitude is second to none. She is there every training night. She is always willing to do that extra little bit. She always has a smile on her face. It’s great for the other children to see what she can do.”


Pre-race: Nottingham:   Blue Haywood (322), who front-ran her way to victory at the English National a fortnight ago, is third in the Reebok Cross Challenge standings with 58 points.

Blue was 3rd in the U13s race at the  Reebok Inter-counties in Nottingham.



Blue was 2nd in the Reebok 2003/2004 series, with 104 points.



In March, Blue was 14th in the Junior Girls' race at English Schools in Maidstone, Kent.

Blue claims UK Under-18 road best

20 December 2007

Blue Haywood (Lincoln Wellington AC) is claiming a UK Under 18 Women’s 5km road best after winning a senior women’s race at Derby last night in 16 minutes 24 seconds.

It is six seconds faster than the previous best, recorded by former GB Junior cross country and mountain running international Karrie Hawitt (Warrington AC) at Oswestry in 2003.

“Wow!” exclaimed 16-year-old Blue, winner of the Under 17 Women’s race at the opening UK Cross Challenge meeting of the season at Gateshead, when told of the illustrious list she was now topping.

The Tuxford Comprehensive School pupil, who is on the England Athletics East Midlands Regional Event Development Programme, added: “I never thought I would run that quick. I ran 16:54 in May and just wanted to see how much I’ve improved since then. It was a very nice course – flat, and out-and-back alongside a cycle track. And there were plenty of men for company.”
