New Year's Racing
Results now up. A very successful day for C&C at Ely, with Rosie Clarke winning the women's race and Alex and Glyn taking the men's V55 and V60 prizes. Rosie posted the fastest accurately-measured C&C women's 10K of 2006 (as far as I know), with 37:38. At the Buntingford 10 miler, Emma Kreetzer also took a 2006 record (I think!), with 1:10:42 (please correct me if you know differently in either case). Fastest male and female 10Ks of 2007 followed the next day at Wymondham........
Boxing Day race
A superb fifty-one runners completed the annual C&C Boxing Day race from Lammas Land to Trumpington and back. The winners were our U20 middle-distance star Ed Aston and Emma Patel, making a welcome return to C&C as a guest. Full results now posted (thanks, Noel!).
