Frostbite League - this Sunday
The last match of this season's Frostbite League is at BRJ, Huntingdon on Sunday. Please do your best to turn out, as we're likely to be missing quite a few on marathon training long runs and races (apologies!). The seniors need to beat Hunts AC to hold on to fourth place, while the juniors will be aiming to beat Ramsey to take third. Glyn has suggested a 9am meeting at Wilberforce Road for those wishing to share lifts.
I'd be glad to receive news of the Frostbite, and of anyone else's day's racing, whenever it is - just e-mail me or log in and post a news item or add your results.
uka Inter-Counties Cross Country Championship
9 C&C runners turned out to represent Cambridgeshire at this years Championships at Wollaton Park, Nottingham.The usually demanding course taking in the park's hills was this year made even more of a test by the heavy overnight rain which made the conditions under foot heavy at best. This showed in the finishing times which were all well down on those from previous years. All our runners accounted well for themselves with Adam Tapley, Ellie Taylor, Nick Burch, Ellie Scofield, Ellen Leggate and Will Clarke all finishing as first or second points scorer for the county in their respective events. Well done to all who took part.
Results are in from the Bury Twenty and Nearly Ten. Kim starred for C&C again, winning the FV40 category in 2:20:54, and Giacomo was first C&C home in 2:07:45, finishing fourth MV40. In the Nearly Ten (nine miles 703 yards exactly), John K took the glory with third place overall, while Tim finished fourth MV40. In all, fifteen C&C runners clocked up 268.2 miles, much of it for marathon training - roughly the distance from Cambridge to Paris. (Kim pic : Digitography )
Sunday 17th Feb
Now up; Results plus photos taken by a very ill Carmel from our annual jolly to the Bungay 20K. A very successful day, thanks to superb second places for Fiona, 2nd FV40, and Glyn, 2nd MV60, and a quick run by Tim, first C&C. Results are also up from the Ryston XC (well done, Peter and Mary), and the Sunday League XC at Royston - it's a pity that we could only muster one runner for this one, but well done Diana for a good placing and (as ever) for flying the flag for C&C.
Unofficial Results for the Eastern Cross Country Championships
As yet no official results have been made available by the Eastern Athletic Association. Everyone who took part had good run over a challenging course where some of the lower section were waterlogged or even under water. The only category where we had enough runners for a team was for the ladies where Becs, Diana and Mary secured a well earned silver medal. Unofficial results are here.
From a club and team point of view whilst we are pleased at the success of those who competed we are very disappointed that more than twice as many members again said they would run, the club made and paid for their entries, but failed to turn up on the day, this is a waste of club funds!
Results - Stamford and the Eastern XC

Well done Pietro at Watford - 27th place (of 1947) in 1:16:43, a touch off the intended pace, but not too bad anyway!
Wel done too Diana and Mark at the SEAA Vets' XC in Middlesex.
The juniors finished seventh and the seniors sixth at Bourne today. The juniors drop a place to fourth overall, whilst the seniors somehow go up one to fourth. Results are now up - star performer was Kim, first female. Well done to everyone who made the long trip.
