Nene Valley 10
Over the weekend a small band of C&C runners made the trip up to Peterborough for the rescheduled Nene Valley 10. Some excellent performances saw the C&C team feature heavily at the top of the leader board. Michael Salt was first C&C runner home, in an absolutely jaw dropping time of 55:08, which in a very strong field was only good enough for 6th place! John Oakes was the 2nd C&C runner home having put in yet another excellent performance, making the top 10 in a time of 59:31, and winning the MV50 category. And finally, 3rd home for C&C was John Uff who ran a blistering PB of 60:00 and finished 13th. With such superb performances to follow I was quite happy bringing up the rear! Well done chaps. Full results can be found on the results page.

Malta Marathon
Mark Crook flew the C & C flag at the Malta marathon and for a debut did an amazing time of 3 hours 11. So well done Mark!

Big Cow Duathlon
Lisa Stango and I ventured out to Emberton for the Big Cow Duathlon - 10km/40km/5km. Lisa, on her dualthon debut, may well have qualified for the European Championships after finishing fourth in her age group. Whereas I probably managed to successfully get myself in the Gunniness Book of Records for the longest transition!

Final Frostbite race
The final Frostbite of this season will soon be upon us and the seniors are very close to winning! It's at Hinchingbrooke Park on Sunday 6th March. I hope as many C & C runners turn out so we can finally clinch the long awaited trophy! If anyone is able to offer or needs a lift, I suggest meeting at the track at 9am. The junior race (1.5 miles approx) starts at 10:15am and the senior race (5 miles approx) starts at 11am. I have been asked for assistance in offering marshals so if anyone who's not running can help, please get in touch. As usual full details can be found on www.frostbiteleague.org.uk

Sleaford Half
Impressive half marathoning by Kim Masson and John Evans in Lincolnshire - Kim took fourth female in 1:35 and John was 48th overall in a PB of 1:25 at the Sleaford Half.

Ryston XC
Quite a small squad in the latest Ryston cross-country meet (the Nationals may have something to do with that), but high quality as ever. Congratulations to David Pettitt on a spectacular V45 race win, to Amy Pettitt on her third place, and to Thomas and Christopher Blatch, winner and fourth place respectively.

Cambridge parkrun
Another parkrun win for Caz Pritchard! John Uff's second place was pretty good too.

Herts Sunday League X-Country
Results for this race, one of the hilliest I have run and certainly the hilliest so far south, are in here. Mike Salt and Diana Braverman were first C&C man and lady, respectively. Well done to all who took part!

This is a nice series of races that are enjoyable, challenging and relatively local courses and it would be good to see C&C achieving better than mid-table, which has been our best result this season. Let's see some more C&C tops at this next year!

English Nationals XC
All of the fun rides at Alton Towers had moved to the hilly parkland. There were free mud slides available to all entrants - some of us got more than one opportunity to do them. Unfortunately halfway through the organizers deemed them 'too much fun' and the course was re-routed. Our team was quite select - but, in such wet and cold conditions who but the most mad would really want to turn out? Hearty congratulations to all of them! The best results were again from the youngsters - Finn Barnes in 53st place - less than 45s off the lead, George in 24th place and Hollie Parker in 81st. Alice Newcombe deserves a special mention for making it around such a difficult course. And, Mary - who told me last week she only did little events now.... - put in a cracking performance. Oh, did I mention the mud?

New C&C Technical Tee
Hi all,
I have tasked myself with designing and getting produced a new C&C tech running tee. I'll put some designs up online here when I have done them, in the meantime I'd be interested to know how many people would buy one as this makes a big difference to how much each one will cost. Send me an email to covbaldy@hotmail.com and let me know what size and how many. I guess it will be like a coolmax material. Pass this message onto any C&C'ers you may know who might be interested. Cheers Al

Stamford St Valentine's 30K
Sixteen C&C romantics rode the rollercoaster of love at Stamford, many with spring marathons in mind. Ish Badr was first C&C male home (in 2:12) on a damp and windy day, and Ultra Katie Samuelson first C&C female (2:23), but in a race with an amorous theme, only three pairs finished together - Carmel and me, Andrea and Maria, and Simon and Andrew (again). Make of that what you will.

English National XC Championships
For those who have entered the National XC event on Saturday 19th February at Alton Towers, Staffordshire, if you go to the website www.englishcrosscountry.co.uk, select the XC event on the left hand side of the website, it lists all all the entries by age category. The first race is at 11am. Jo and Mark Newcombe have kindly offered to collect all the race numbers because unfortunately, I am unable to attend. They will have the C & C banners with them and plan to stay for the entire day. Good luck to everyone who runs on Saturday.

Kedington XC event
As per my announcement yesterday and via e-mail, in order to trial a new scoring system ahead of the main Kevin Henry league, which starts in May. Haverhill have organised a small XC event near Kedington of 4.8 miles approx. It's on Saturday 12th February and starts at 10am. If you'd like to run in this free event, please let me know by Friday so I can inform the organisers and also forward you the directions.

Watford Half
Keeping modestly quiet amongst the weekend's heroic reports are our two representatives at the Watford Half Marathon, Christian Nielsen and Matthew Applegate, so I'll give them a cheer. Both ran superb PBs, with Christian's 1:23:52 pipping Matthew's 1:24:41 - congratulations both.

Great Bentley Half
An intrepid C&C trio took on the ridiculously windy plains of Great Bentley and did us proud. John Oakes took a very well deserved 1st M50 position in 1.18. Neil Carrington made his half marathon debut with a sprightly 1.26 and Diana Braverman took 3rd FV55 in 1.59. Impressive stuff, it was hard enough just walking about trying to drink coffee and take photos (which are in the gallery).

Bourne Frostbite
Very quick update - just got in. A magnificent turnout - well done all and particular well done to those who urged, cajoled, organised, gave lifts etc. Not sure if anyone made it to the results, but with a running score of 343, and last male/female scorers in 31st/91st places, if anyone beat us, they will have done outstandingly. Quickest (if memory serves) - Mike S 3rd, Charlie 4th, John U 13th, Noel 14th, and quickest females George in 46th, Kim & Caz 90th & 91st. Only counted four juniors, sadly, but all were going well - including third boy and first girl as they hit the home straight. Fingers crossed all round. Full report to follow from someone soon, I'm sure! Update: individual results are now up, and our six-point lead in the seniors means we need to finish sixth or better at the last race at Hinchingbrooke to take the title.

Bourne Frostbite QUICK UPDATE
Well we scored 343 a very good total and I believe that HVH only had 2 girls today so we are looking very good. Awesome team performance by everyone who made the journey! Well done to all really great team running.
Special mention to Simon Brightwell who dropped out of a pre entered race to run for the white and blues! Awesome stuff all round guys.

Bourne Frostbite - A call to arms.
We are looking very thin on the ground for this sundays Frostbite. We really need a good turn out to hold off NVH. This was exactly the same last year and at the same race where NVH turned out a large team and beat us to the overall title.
EVERYONE can help make this another great team victory, no matter where you are placed. Lets not let another years chance at the title slip through our fingers. I fear should we loose to them this weekend it will be too much to peg back in the final race. So come on guys we need to show people that C&C are a team and not just a bunch of small groups...
Email me if you can run: covbaldy@hotmail.com
Lets face it the league trophy would look good on the fireplace wouldn't it!?
