European Junior Championships
Ed Aston represented Great Britain at the European Junior Championships in Hengelo, Netherlands, last Friday. Sadly, Ed missed out on qualifying for the 800m semis by a hundredth of a second in a very tactical heat, having led at 600m.

5K League - Cambridge
A foul, wet and windy evening for our home fixture in the 5K league, but a great turnout anyway - well done everyone for rallying to the call, and Glyn for behind-the-scenes rabble-rousing. The women's team turned round a minor disaster last month into glory, taking first place individually (well done, Kim) and as a team, looking like world-beaters. Well, area-beaters anyway. The men were also out in force, winning their event again, led home by Giacomo. We're now top of the overall standings and the men's standings; we're third in the women's, but the gap between the top three is tiny - all to play for at Newmarket next month.
Many thanks to all who helped out and took a drenching heroically - organiser Glyn, starter Barry and marshals Mary, Steve, Mike D, Ron, Helen, Ian and Brian - your efforts were greatly appreciated by all the runners.
Stiffkey Camping weekend 13/14 July
I have booked 3 no pitches for the following weekend, each pitch can have 2 x 2 man tent possibly 3 as the pitch is 8m x8m. this is with the cars not on each pitch but in the car park.
Cost £7.50/pitch +£3.00/adult per night so with the above we can accommodate 10-12 happy campers
I have 4-5 confirmed but will you all please email me to confirm your place and type of tent.
The campsite has a toilet and shower block with a pub in the village a short walk away.
The site is just off the peddars way and the norfolk costal path which is ideal for a run. it is also between Wells and Blakeney.

What the Papers Say
Sunday Results, 1st July
Results are trickling in - well done Nick, Nigel, Jalanie and Shelley in the last race in the Bedford Sprint Tri series. Nick won his category to take the overall series victory and his run leg was the fourth quickest of anyone - stunning! On the roads; Simon led the C&C challenge at the Newmarket 10K, and Mark C at the EVAC 10K. Finally, well done Giacomo, finishing second in the Sutton Feast Beast 7. On the track, the composite Team Cambridge side was in action at Woodford Green - follow the link for results.
