Newmarket Duathlon
Well done to our squad at a very warm Newmarket Duathlon. Ben Baldelli put his multi-event talents to good use, finishing eighth overall, whilst Katie Toynton impressively finished seventh female. Geoff Weller's 19th was at the sharp end as well, and Tim Long's 79th was pretty fine too. Hats off to all of you - I had to stop for a rest on my 4.8 mile slow jog because I was too hot.

There aren't too many races for young chemists, but Carol had the right formula at the YCC 5K in Virginia, taking third place.

Despite being the Cambs 5K Championship race and a Cambs RRL event, the Nene Valley 5K didn't attract many C&Cs, but again the quality was there. Well done Ben Baldelli on 11th place and first Vet 40 and John Jenkins on first Vet 60.

Reepham 10K
A lovely 10K. Not a great time for me but I would do it again. Great trophies on offer for age category winners.

5K League - Newmarket
Results are up from the 5K League fixture at Newmarket. It looks like none of our 42 runners could remember their names or finish times, so if someone who was there would be good enough to try to sort out who finished where from this webpage at the league site, I would be eternally grateful. I would also be glad to hear anyone's watch times that they might recall - contact me, please (thanks to everyone who has helped so far).
However, I can report that we did apparently win both male and female categories.

St Levan 10K
By a very Cambridge-y co-incidence, there were two C&Cs at "mainland Britain's most westerly road race" on Friday. A massive PB and 14th place for John Evans and a first Vet 50 prize for Diana Braverman at the St Levan 10K in Cornwall. Well done both.

Baby Zak
News from Alan and Caroline...
Zak Thomas Pritchard was born at home at 11.06pm on the 6th August weighing 7.7lbs. Caz now chomping at the bit to return to running ready for London in April.
Congratulations to all the family from everyone at C&C. Zak is an experienced C&C racer, so the vest is well-earned!

C&C Grand Prix
The Thorney 5 was our fourth Grand Prix race, and the full 20 points make Mike and Katie our competition leaders, and Andrew and Iona did themselves a power of good too, now lying third and fourth. Andrew now leads the age and gender-graded table, but Mike has a 'game in hand'.
Next Grand Prix race is the Grunty Fen Half on 13th September. Have you entered yet?

Thorney 5
Quality rather than quantity at a baking-hot Thorney 5 on Sunday, I think, but what quality! Mike Salt took third place, just edging Noel Carroll into fourth, with Bob Watson eighth. With those three, Alan Pritchard's 21st wasn't even needed to bag us the male team prize. What's more, Mike is now the five-mile county champion (taking Noel's crown!) and Bob won the Vet 45 category. First C&C female was Katie Samuelson-Dean in 16th, and good runs by Andrew Herne and Iona Graham Hagg too. Congratulations to the whole squad.

Wandlebury 5
A warm day for the Wandlebury 5, where, despite some, er, vagueness about the course (things like number of laps!), a band of C&Cs featured strongly, particularly David J in fifth and Alex the first V60.

London Triathlon
Triathlon news now. Noel C turned in the quickest run leg for his age category in the London Tri Olympic distance race, and the other bits were pretty good too, earning him eighth place. If anyone else went, get in touch.

5K League - Newmarket
We're still waiting for results from the Newmarket fixture in the 5K series, but my informants tell me that (a) we had a brilliant turnout (b) the torrential rain held off during the race and (c) we won both male and female events. You beauties! More to come as soon as it reaches me.

Wibbles and Wobbles
One of the great pleasures of the summer is crashing through Brandon Forest on a Friday night at the Wibbly Wobbly Log Jog. As ever, we had a good turnout and beautiful weather, and this year the boys and girls were led in by John K and Ultra Katie respectively, with Andrew H in between.

Peterborough 5K Grand Prix
Latest results from the Peterborough Grand Prix at Werrington - Ben B clocked 16:37 for fourth place (and first vet), Giacomo ran 18:10 to finish fourth vet 40 and the evergreen (is that rude?) John J smashed the 20-minute barrier (by a second) to take second place in the vet 60 category. Class, simply. Ben's time was good enough to improve his lead in the C&C 5K rankings.

San Francisco 5K
News from sun-kissed California, where Dave Abbott placed a startlingly good eighth out of 1371 in the San Francisco 5K.

Mmmm... Chips....
A small band of C&C mudlarks made the trip up to March to contest the inaugural Spud Run. The Downies and Diana all ran top-three in their categories, Diana winning hers - well done all. I feel hungry for some reason.

Doug Anderson 5K
Ben B's tour of the country's trophy presentations continued at Bedford Harriers' Doug Anderson 5K, where a 16:44 earned him third place and first vet. Glorious form there, Ben!

St Ives 10K
After a highly successful race for us in 2008, C&C attendance was down at this year's St Ives 10K. Nevertheless, Mike Salt won us some silverware, taking first place in the vet 35s and sixth overall. Good running by the rest of the team.
Being the third race in the C&C Grand Prix, our nine cashed in with some good points. Mike moves into joint first with Jemma, whilst Andrew H and Iona both jumped into the top six. In the age-graded standings, Andrew and Kris top the charts, with Mike and Simon B just behind with a race in hand.

Peterborough 5K Grand Prix
Glory for John J at the Stamford leg of this excellent 5K series (more of you should do it!) - first in the vet 60s.

Simon R's US Epic
Ultra Simon is challenging Ultra Katie in the dubious sanity stakes, and taking on the ludicrously mountainous Leadville Trail Marathon and the Missoula Marathon on consecutive days is both utterly bonkers and utterly awesome. Over to you, Katie...

Histon Feast Fun Run
Belated results are in for the Histon Feast Run, where Dave P was second senior and Adam Tapley won the under-15 race, but top marks also to Jane, fourth senior female, and Tim, fourth vet.

5K League - Newmarket
There will be a car-sharing meet-up at Wilberforce Road at 6pm for Thursday's League trip to Newmarket. Whether you're there or going direct, we need all the runners we can get as it's really tight at the top. A (compulsory) C&C vest is all you need, no registering or payment.
The race starts here, on the Gallops at 7.30pm.
