34th Caboolture to Maleny Road Relay68.5km - Queensland, Sunday 19 August 2001
The men in green Ashgrove Rangers won their fourth title in the 34 year history of the Caboolture-Maleny Relay. Their blend of youth and experience produced a winning combination. Multiple World Veteran champion Ron Peters captured the lead just past the top of Hennessy's hill at 20 km. Rangers continued to extend the lead over the remainder of the course.
The race saw a return to athletic competition of the 1989 Gold Coast Marathon Champion, Brad Camp. His 1989 time of 2:10:11 is still the race record and second fastest marathon every run by an Australian in Australia (behind Rob De Castella's 1982 Commonwealth Games win). Brad joined the Toowong Harrier's team that rallied from behind too come through as runners up. The University of Sunshine Coast in their debut performance finished third while defending champions Thompsom Estate were relegated to fourth place.
Intraining women's team continued their dominance in the race to lead from the start to record their third successive victory. University of Sunshine Coast women's team performed well to be runners up in their debut relay. Ashgrove Rangers masters stretched their record to a seventh consecutive win in the event.
Caboolture Road Runners also notched up a double with a win in the Road Runners/Tri Club team category and a win in the Mixed team category.
