Peterborough City Games
Full results of Sunday's Peterborough City Games are up at the Peterborough AC site. Plenty of C&C in action, and too many fine performances to list here!

Madhuri and Mary in Iceland
Madhuri and Mary are off today to conquer the Laugarvegur hike. It's a five-day adventure from the centre of Iceland to the coast, and this website has exclusive rights to their progress updates. Watch this space, but don't expect Black Sheep to feature very prominently.

The hike itinerary can be found at this site and further information is at this site.

Click Here to read the report in full, with stunning pics too.

More photos to be uploaded to the Gallery very soon....

Multi-discipline news
No running races for C&C last weekend (unless you know differently...?), but well done to Cole in the Bedford Classic Triathlon and to Jen and Diana in the Newmarket Duathlon.

Mary's News Item
Mary J is the first victim (of many, I imagine) of the success of the St Neots Half, which has now filled up way in advance (it'll be run on the 18th November). They do operate a number transfer facility via the Riverside Runners website..... STOP PRESS: place now found!..... Which links neatly to the London Pride Run last weekend, which Mary ran in 50 mi... er... I mean... 72.39%.

Helsinki Marathon
News in from Finland - Johann finished in 3:16:16. He was bang-on 3 hour pace at half way, so expect tales of woe and misery. I'm still very impressed - well done Johann!

Thorney 5
Results are in from the Thorney 5. First C&C was Ben Baldelli, finishing seventh. Well done all.

Appeal for help - Grunty Fen Half
Rachel has asked me, on behalf of Ely Runners, to appeal for some marshalling help for the Grunty Fen Half Marathon on 9th September. Rachel says ... "We'd be grateful for any help at all, so if people can only stick around for a short time or want to see the finish etc, I'm sure they can be accommodated. (And there might even be a free pair of yellow shorts on offer as an extra inducement...!)".

Don't be afraid of the last bit! There will be plenty of C&C runners to cheer on, and I know your help would be greatly appreciated. And it is actually fun too, honest!

Contact Rachel on rachel.roberts@yahoo.co.uk or 07949 769242.

Peterborough 5K Series
The last of the 5K series was run last night at Werrington. It's an excellent five-race series, on accurately-measured, mostly flat courses, but doesn't attract many C&C - maybe more next year?. Well worth a trip on a Wednesday evening. Results up, hopefully series results overall to follow (how did John J do in the MV60?).

Sunday 12th August
No local races to speak of, so Kim made the long trip to the Newark Half, finishing 4th female in 1:29:09.

Track News
C&C's youngsters came second in their Eastern Young Athletes' League match at Wilberforce Road to take ninth position overall. Read the report here, including details of Lauren Sammout's record-breaking (or equalling) throws. Also in the CEN, news of Lucy Dowsett's prestigious Crystal Palace run.

C&C Southern Men's League Triumph
The men's track team have won the Division 3N title, taking victory in the final match, at Peterborough. Read the Cambridge Evening News report here. Congratulations to all concerned, athletes and officials. Ian W pic CEN.

5K League - Newmarket
Results are now in from Newmarket, and there were plenty of C&C vests there, including some debutants - particular congratulations to them. Well done Karin, who won the women's race, and John K, highest-placed C&C in the men's. Overall, our both our women's team and our men's team were beaten into second place by the hosts, who turned out a very strong squad. We remain top in the series in the men's event and overall, while the women are joint second - all to play for next month at Haverhill.

Wandlebury Cross-Country 5
Well, the most belated results of the year are in, from the Wandlebury Cross-Country 5, and well worth the wait - Giacomo (clearly too modest to tell me so) won! Congratulations, Giacomo!

Rosie Clarke wins European U23 Tri Champs
As spotted on the Cambridge Tri Club site, Rosie Clarke won the European Under-23 Championship in Finland, emulating big brother Will's success last year. Rosie has followed Will onto the ITU World Cup pro circuit this season. Pic (c) ITU.

Sunday 5th August
Results now in on a horribly hot day for racing: Run Holkham Hall - Paul led C&C in, taking third M50, and Diana was second F50. Also in, the Eastern Vets' 5K, with a big C&C representation led in by John J.

Wibbly Wobbly
Full results now up for the Wibbly Wobbly Log Jog. Chris B was first C&C, but Fiona took the honours, finishing first F40 despite a tumble over one of the aforementioned logs. Nine C&C entrants (and one second claim) took part in what is definitely one of the most enjoyable races of the year, always filling up very early. Oh, and this year's animal was a badger.

Neil's 60th
There was a big turnout at Churchill College last night for a surprise buffet dinner and drinks to celebrate Neil's transition into the V60 category. Very enjoyable, and well done all concerned, especially Ian, Helen, Carmel and Ginny. Oh, and Neil too!
If you missed out - well, it was a secret after all - make sure Ian knows your contact details to keep you in the loop.

Tuesday Road Training Schedule
Neil's proposed sessions for August and September are now available via the 'Training' tab above.
Neil says: Alan will be taking some of the sessions in August and he will 'support' us in a core stability warm down again next Tuesday. Specially for masochists so it probably suits most of us.

Cologne Marathon and Half
Repeating Ish's plug from a while back, the Cologne Marathon and Half Marathon are on Sunday 7th October - it seems to be a popular choice this year, and it would be great to get a big C&C tour party together along the lines of other great booze-ups, er, I mean race trips of recent years (see photo section). If you're in need of a target for the autumn (or just a trip away), think about Cologne. E-mail Ish for more details (flights from Stansted with Germanwings.com are still very cheap).

On the Track
In the latest news from the Cambridge Evening News athletics pages, there's a report on the East Anglian League match at Wilberforce Road, where Kim Motley broke the club U-20 100m record, and Ed Aston talks about his experience in the European U-20s prior to a disappointing defeat in the 800m heats at last weekend's Norwich Union World Trials & UK Championships.

Swiss Alpine (Half) Marathon
A couple of results are in from the Swiss Alpine Marathon, or the shortened version of it. A phenomenally silly race to enter on a whim without suitable training, but fun nonetheless. Report to follow (perhaps). Less mentally-stable members (naming no names) may note the 78K version. There's a stunning slideshow here (but beware the music if at work!).

Haverhill 10-5-1
C&C's Italian contingent were prominent in the Haverhill 10-5-1 (that's 10K, 5K, 1K), filling three of the first six places in the 10K race, with Pietro second in 34:47 and topping the C&C 10K rankings for 2007. Magnifico! Full results are now online.

Kent 50 Mile Challenge
Very belated news of Katie S-D's latest descent into hell - the Kent 50 Mile Challenge. Katie was first female to complete the maximum 52.4-mile distance - that's two marathons'-worth - in 9:31:00. I have no words, other than congratulations Katie! Oh, and keep me posted on your news, if you're reading this... and maybe a report too...?
