Discussion on the Essex Way Relay

I've just had an email from Benfleet about Essex Way results & they have the (nearly) full set from 1989.
However they are missing year 2000 when only 7 teams compeated.
Can anyone fill in the blanks... Benfleet had 3 teams and took 1, 2, 3
Update - results from 1989 though to this year are now all online.
2 blanks exist 1993 and 2000.
In 1993 winners were Barking Road Runners and the Ladies Winners were Dolly Mixtures (Thurrock & Pitsea). Benfleet was 5th.
In 2000 as already mentioned Benfleet took 1,2 & 3
Thurrock Nomads were 4th in 2000. Hash House Harriers had a team and I think Pitsea had 2 teams - will check next time I see Peter Bates or Keith Jackson of Pitsea who were involved that year.
2000 was the year the Race was aborted half-way. I ran Leg 5 only to be told that the race had been cancelled! For those who remember, it was the year a lady runner got lost on Leg 2, and a male runner collapsed on Leg 4 - over 32C heat! It was a wise decision to call it off that day - there would have been even more casualties in the searing heat.
