Cambridge Cambourne 10K FULL
The race is now FULL. We reached the 1000 limit exactly one month after the first entry, and more than two months before the race. Well done everyone involved - we just need to provide a race now!

Frostbite League - Bourne
The fifth Frostbite League race is this Sunday (1st Feb) in Bourne Woods, many people's favourite venue. It's our longest trip and competes with the Expo, which many people are attending or helping out with, so we really need you (yes, you!) to come along and help the club. No registration, free entry, just turn up in the famous C&C vest, 11am for seniors, 10:15 juniors.
There will be a meet-up for car sharing at Wilberforce Road at 9 a.m..

Cambridge Cambourne 10K - Volunteers
Further to my announcement at Tuesday’s training we are looking for 15 volunteers to help to assist at the Cambridge 10k on Sunday 5th April 2009 – 6 to help Tim Long at the start, 6 to help Adam Poole at the finish and 3 to run a Cambridge and Coleridge AC stand. We’d like to promote the club because there will be a lot of unattached runners. If you’re interested then please either contact Andy Irvine or Adam Poole through the website. Thank you. Adam

Turing Relay Sunday 15th March 2009
We would like to enter the Turing Trail Relay, which runs from Ely – Cambridge – Ely with six stages (averaging about 6 miles each (the longest leg is 7 miles)). If you’re interested in entering (we are looking for 4 teams - 1 fast male, 1 female, 1 male Vets and one Italian(!) team) please can you let either Glyn Smith or Adam Poole know as soon as possible. Thank you. Adam

SEAA Cross-Country
High-class C&C running at the South of England AA Cross Country, in appallingly wet and muddy conditions at Hillingdon. Guy Kendall in the U13s, Nick Burch at U17 and Will Mycroft in the U20s all managed top-half finishes against some of the country's best. Well done everyone - just a shame that no-one over 20 had the courage to rise to the challenge!

Cambridge Cambourne 10K - Volunteers
As Neil posted earlier, we'd like a strong showing in our new race, and we're now nearly two-thirds full, so you only have a matter of days to get your entries in. On the other hand, although we're expecting lots of help from all our partner organisations, we're likely to need some more volunteers to do some jobs on the day (no organisation required), so if you're not running and would like to help, please get in touch with Adam or me.

Road runs on Sunday 1st February
Sunday 1st February is the next Frostbite league at Bourne – a great course – and that should be first priority for anyone racing please. Definitely the best course in the league in my view. But if you’re not going to Bourne, it would be really helpful if you could do your long run on Saturday and come along to the training runs linked to the Cambridge Cambourne 10k on Sunday. We’ll be leading runs for a wide range of abilities from the car park at Fitzwilliam College – Storey’s Way entrance. The runs begin promptly at 8.45 and should finish by about 9.45. They are to encourage non C&C members to run – and maybe think about coming along to C&C if they’re locals. Paul Evans (ex UK international marathoner) will join in with one group and we hope that Tracey Morris (Leeds athlete who came from nowhere to represent the UK at the Athens Olympics in the marathon) will also join a group. If you want to come along, please wear your C&C vest (on top of another vest or warmer top) so everyone knows who we are. Just to emphasise, the Frostbite is first priority but if you’re not going it would be good to see you at the Fitzwilliam college car park – if no non-members turn up we can make it a club run with two illustrious guests.

Ultra Not Enough?
A very big weekend for our Ultra Katie. Main event was the Thames Path Ultra, no less than fifty miles along the Thames from Reading to Shepperton. Katie completed it in a superb nine hours 23 minutes.
Logically, running a 12K race the next day, Not The Roman IX, would be simple by comparison, but you'd need to be made of stern stuff to try it! Congratulations, Katie!

Folksworth 15
Full results are now in from the Folksworth 15, and there's plenty of good news to report from the presentation. Nick Beer was second overall in 1:26 - an outstanding achievement in a high-quality race. On top of that, both the men's team and the women's team won their events. Well done Nick, Chris Pyle, Adam Poole, Meinou Simmons, Katie Toynton and Carol Stanier. We have some very nice prizes for you all.
Lots of C&C present today - well done everyone.

Southern Indoor Championships
Ed Aston won the 800m at the SofE championships on Sunday, in a high class field (where Ed was ranked 3rd fastest) Ed kicked away with over a lap and a half to go, and kicked again with a lap to go to build a lead that was not going to be broken down!
Ed also beat the championship record (He now has the Junior and Senior records) running 1m52.22, which is even more promising considering the heat was 1hr40mins before the final.
This time puts Ed at the top of the UK rankings for 2008/9 indoor season, and was his first race of the season, running over 2 seconds faster than his first race last year (Where he also won the Senior South of England title)

Cambridge Cambourne 10k - entries filling up
Most people know this is a new event on 5th April, organised by the club. Entries are now open on line at www.cambridgefestivalofrunning.com where you can also find further details. We held a successful press launch on Monday and an advert will be appearing on the Runners’ World web site later this week. We’ve already had nearly 300 entrants just over two weeks after entries opened – virtually all of them are unaffiliated athletes from this area. Once running clubs get to know about it from Runners’ World we’re likely to have more interest. There’s a race limit of 1000 – if you want to run, probably best to enter fairly soon!

Cambridgeshire Cross-Country Championships
A wonderful day for C&C at the Cambridgeshire Cross-Country Championships, with individual and team medals won in several age groups. Top-three finishes were achieved by Lucy Parker and Amy Pettitt at Under-11 (a C&C one-two), Guy Kendall in the Under-13s (second), Frostbite star George Schwiening in the Under-15s (first) and Emilie Kerr at Under-17 (third). In the senior events, Will Mycroft and Tom Vickery were fifth and eighth (and second U20 and third Senior respectively) in the Men's race, whilst Natalie Shaw and Joan Lazenby led us home in the Women's race, Joan also taking first place in the Vet 45s. Diana Braverman and Sue Barnett continued their ongoing battle, finishing first and second in the Vet 55 category. Congratulations to everyone, and to our new champions particularly.

In the team events, we finished in the top three in every category contested, winning the U17 Women and Vet Ladies categories, and generally did ourselves huge credit. Hearty thanks are due to the team management and Cambs AA people - Nigel, Mary, Noel and anyone else I've forgotten.

Sizihwan Marathon
Not one of the usual C&C fixtures this. Simon R ran the Sizihwan Marathon in Taiwan yesterday, going sub-4 and setting the target for C&C marathoners in London, Rotterdam, Paris and elsewhere to beat. I believe it's also a C&C record for the course...

FLM coach time again
I am investigating coaches again for the London Marathon. The idea is to have a pick up from Chesterton at about 6.15am to take us to the start and then collect us all later at about 4.30pm (probably from nr the London Eye). Prices will vary a little depending on how many wish to do this. A rough guide will be £17 per head if 25 people are up for it, or £22 for 20 people etc. I must add it's great to be able to to not have to worry about any of the logistics in the morning and just enjoy it and then you can relax and glow in your glory on the way home! Friends and family are of course welcome and usually coach companies are happy to drop those not running somewhere more central, but I will check that. Can you let me know if you are interested asap. I will review the numbers in February and decide on the coach size then. If there are very few of us a minibus is an option too and will still be pretty cheap. My email is katie.toynton@gmail.com

Tuesday Training
Alan Baldock and I, with support from Michael Smith, are hoping to run long distance and middle distance training on Tuesdays using a team approach to coaching. Some of the club’s younger coaches will also join in, we hope, as part of their coach development. There will be a choice of sessions and an opportunity to pick and mix according to your own needs and objectives. We are determined not to split the running group and plan to warm up together along with joint drills and skills exercises. We all gain from the training benefit of running together and the support and friendship given by the group and we value that enormously. Any of us will be pleased to offer whatever advice we can for training, race planning etc.. Just ask.
(note: the new Tuesday schedule has been posted in ' Training ')

Sunday League - Royston
Also flying the flag for C&C, in our Sunday League fixture, our four runners managed fourth & fifth overall and second & third in category. Superb running Mike, John, Diana and Sue respectively.

Frostbite League - Ramsey
Update from the Ramsey Frostbite - juniors tenth on the day (team three short) and now eighth overall, seniors tenth on the day (team one short) and now seventh overall. We were once again beaten by our turnout as much as we were by the opposition, but well done everyone who ran on a bitterly cold day. The highlight was George Schwiening's amazing fourth consecutive month as first girl in the junior competition.
Update: we are likely to drop to a catastrophic 13th in the senior event following a mis-identification. It gets worse!

New Year's Day Racing
Virtuous people raced this morning at Wymondham and Coventry, setting the 10K and five mile times to beat for 2009. Some slowing compared with 24 hours previously was noted...
