2004

Faye Fullerton won bronze in a high class BUSA (British University Students Association) championships at Dundee. Lisa Dobriskey of Loughborough won by 9 secs in 23:48 from in-form Louise Damen, with Faye, representing St Mary's Twickenham third in 24:12, also picking up team silver. 

At the English Nationals Faye Fullerton added the National U20 Cross Country title to her u17 title from 2001 at Durham, enjoyed another trip up North from her base at the UK Athletics Endurance Performance Centre at St Mary’s University Twickenham. After a sluggish start she same through for a clear win by 15 seconds from Loughborough University-based steeplechaser Bryony Frost (Isle of Wight) over the very hilly course in Leeds.

But success wasn’t as routine as it looked. Fullerton, does much of her training close to Hampton Court in West London. But she said of her race at what Yorkshire folk call the North’s equivalent of Hampton Court: “I got the worst start; must have been in the 40s. I thought maybe I could still get a medal but I didn’t think I could win until there was maybe a mile to go.” 

Faye was 4th in the Senior Women's 4km at the Reebok Inter-counties in Nottingham, in a time of 14:12. She battled to catch the World Cross Country team selectors' eye. But with UK not committed to sending a team in this event and only considering athletes capable of sub-16m 5km pace she looks out of luck in making her first World Cross as a senior.

 

Preview: Faye Fullerton (Havering Mayesbrook AC) replaces Lisa Dobriskey in the Senior Women’s 4km race.  Fullerton, who is based the UK Athletics Endurance Performance Centre at St Mary’s, was part of the Gold medal winning Norwich Union GB Junior Women’s Team at last year’s European Cross Country Championships with an individual fifth place and makes her Senior debut.  She finished fourth in the 4km race at the Reebok UK Inter-Counties Championships, supported by Anchor, in Nottingham on 6 March.

Faye Fullerton also acquitted herself well on Sunday in the World Cross Country Championships in Brussels. Called into the team at short notice after a withdrawal Faye tackled the 4km race, 24 hours after the GB women's team won bronze in the long course 8km event. Faye finished 66th, after lying 40th at half way and told the UKA website “It was OK. I didn’t go off too hard because obviously I had looked at the course a couple of days ago and knew that by the time our race came round it would be like a bog. On the second lap, they just wound it up. It got faster and faster and I found it hard to go with the pace. It was a good experience – my first Senior race. I’m happy with how I ran.

Faye Fullerton was a member of the gold–medal winning GB Students team on Sunday which triumphed at the World University Cross Country Championship in  Italy on Sunday. Faye finished 11th overall, just seven days after making her GB senior debut in the Senior Women’s 4km event at the IAAF World Cross Country Championships. This time the distance was 6.5km and Faye’s finishing time of 22:53 made her fourth GB scorer as Louise Damen (Bournemouth AC and Loughborough University) finished second in 22:11, five seconds behind the Moroccan winner. Britain finished as the top team thanks to Kate Reed, fourth in 22:20 and Collette Fagan, eighth in 22:48, just five seconds and three places ahead of Faye. The GB students’ squad was completed by Freya Murray, 18th in 23:10.
