Cambridge Race for Life - marshals wanted
Hi Folks

I'm chief marshal for the Cambridge Race(s) for Life this year, and I need to recruit 3 marshal team leaders, each to manage around 5 marshals. It's not onerous, and full instructions will be given in advance. The team leaders just need to keep an eye on their small group of volunteers and act as a point of contact for each team. I'm also recruiting marshals to join the teams.

If you, or someone you know, would be willing to help on either day (both would be better still, but not essential) then please reply to me at brian@corbett.org.uk by Friday 1st June latest {there are two races on Sun 10th June, two more on Sun 8th July - Andy}.

It's for a great cause. Last year Cambridge raised around 0.5m and this year the target is around 0.75m - this goes towards funding over 3,000 scientists to advance cancer research, and help cure a disease that affects more than 1 in 3 people at some time in their life.

Many thanks
Brian Corbett

Other Bank Holiday racing
Away from the tour, results are in from the off-road Brandon Forest Half and on-road Hatfield Broad Oak 10K. In addition, the National Junior League T&F meeting results from Shaftesbury Barnet are available at the league website - Team Cambridge is a composite side from C&C and other clubs.

Tour of the Derwent Valley 2007
Results are now up from the four-race series in Derbyshire; at Duffield, Wirksworth, Milford and Rowsley. Overall placings via the Rowsley link or the event website. This year, 29 C&C runners and supporters made the trip, and an impressive fifteen survived the awful hills, heavy rain and even heavier drinking to complete all four races. Meinou and Mike led us home as third female and sixth male overall, and Fiona and Glyn repeated last year's double of first FV40 and MV60 respectively. There will be many action photos here eventually, and if anyone wants to contribute their report of the trip, I'd be very glad to censor and publish it.

Great North Run guaranteed entries
There are a limited number of Great North Run guaranteed places available (places through the normal entry system filled almost immediately). C&C have a chance of applying for two guaranteed places, but may not receive them as they are on a first-come-first-served basis. If you have achieved the qualifying standard and wish to apply for a place, please let Glyn know as soon as possible, and he will put in the application. The qualifying times are 1:25 for men and 1:40 for women, in the past twelve months (no exact dates are given). The latest date for application is the first of June, but it may well be fully subscribed by then.

East Cambs Half
Some good performances today at Soham despite a warm morning. Pride of place went to Pietro's second place in 1:15:43 - well done Pietro. Official results now up.
A number of C&C runners did the Magog Down Trail Family Fun Run 5, results of which may be harder to trace, but anyway they definitely had beautiful weather.

Paul Evans
Many thanks to Paul for making the trip last night, and to Neil for arranging it. I think we all enjoyed the session and the chat afterwards, and are now motivated to win the London Marathon next year, whether we buy into the idea of cutting down on beer during full training or not......

Kim and Bob ran the Silverstone 10K on Tuesday, and Kim won the F40 category in 39:55 - congratulations (again)! At least, she did assuming the organisers retrieved her from the M40 category.....
