Harlow 10
5 of us made the journey down to Essex, Stacy, Ben, Chris, Neville and I, to run Harlow 10 on Sunday. And what a great team effort it was - all of us coming in within 3 minutes of each other! Chris put in a great sprint finish to come in at 69mins, pipping Ben on the line by 3 seconds. Neville came in a few seconds later at 70mins with Stacy hot on his heels. I came in in 67mins and claimed the 2nd lady trophy. The biggest congratulations goes to Stacy for knocking around 10mins off her time in last years race, what a fantastic achievement.
Harlow 10 is a cracking race, well organised, mostly on road, gently undulating and a great race for those training for an autumn half marathon. Hopefully we'll see a few more blue vests there next year. Full results at: http://www.chiptiminguk.co.uk/ps/results/Harlow 10/27497

Kevin Henry 5k League - Race 3 - 1 August 2013
After 2 races we remain top of the league. After such a fantastic turnout at Kedington, it will be superb to see an army of blue and white again. The 3rd race is hosted by Newmarket Joggers on Thursday 1 August at the Rowley Mile - directions at the bottom of the page. This one is flat and when dry very quick, though the wind can whip up a tad. Most runners prefer a light trail shoe on the racecourse style surface, but road shoes will be fine. Remember, everyone scores! The race starts at 7:30pm, and is probably about a 30 minute drive from Cambridge. If anyone needs or can offer lifts please post in the comments, or shout at Tuesday training; those that don't drive will be really grateful. Also if you are injured and can't run, I would really appreciate some help with the scoring, or even just come down to support! - please email me on chris@hirky.wanadoo.co.uk. See you there!

St Ives 10k ....... and our ladies strike gold!
After such hot weather recently, relief amongst the runners was evident as cloud cover and a gentle breeze meant temperatures around 20 degrees met the white blue brigade at the St Ives 10k. This seemed to really buoy up everyone as excited chatter about PB opportunities and exuberant warm ups were abound. This race has the reputation of being a real tester in hot conditions, but the comparative coolness was met with some cracking performances. First C&C home was Graham in a new PB, closely followed by Dan and Charlie. The ever improving Ben, Martyn, Isabelle, Alex and Diane smashed their PB's with strong runs. The ladies really took the race apart, with a massive PB for Claire for the prize of 3rd lady, then Sarah and Mary in 4th and 5th - taking the ladies team prize for C&C. Have a look at the results for other great PB's, and please update the results if you did one too! A shame I seemed to lose the ability to run today, so the only low point is purely personal - so hoorah to all from C&C, a great effort!

Riverside Runners 26th Anniversary 10k
Popular demand meant that the one-off quarter-centenary race laid on by our friends at St Neots needed a follow-up. Re-celebrating with them were five of our finest; Ben Chamberlain topped the speed charts with a rather fine eighteenth place in 42˝; not far behind were Gerald Meah, 36th in 44:22, and Paul Jones, breaking 45 for 38th. Principal C&C honours though went to Fliss Tournant - fifth female (and first senior) in 45:20. Bravo too Anne Schumann (52:51) and Diana Braverman (just missing the hour).

Bushy 10k
All we Frostbiters know well what a good bunch of lads and lasses our friends at Bushfield are, so it won't surprise anyone to hear that the Bushy 10k has pretty much everything that racers want from their Sunday morning. And as we sweat through what others describe as the "lovely" weather, it's much appreciated that the race crew eased the clouds across just long enough to allow us a fair chance to squeeze out a decent, if hard-suffered, time. Graeme Kennedy did just that, pulling out a 36-and-a-smidgin belter in the Peterborough suburbs to claim a magnificent sixth place. No less magnificent was Carmel McEniery, whose 45:07 was an enormous PB, and won her the V40s; shame they gave the trophy to someone else! My domestic window of race-distance domination has reduced to a chink of light ('til Wednesday when full blackout surely descends) after a so-so 45:25, but Erminia Carilllo had a fine race, keeping it strong for an excellent 54:23. More C&Cs next year, please, and many thanks to all the Bushy gang.

Girton 5K
It was an impossibly perfect Thursday evening in Girton, and what more appropriate way to spend it than at the equally perfect Girton 5K? Mostly off-road round the warren of footpaths and fields between the village and the busway, it's not ideal for a fast time, but it is ideal for competing with your local arch-rivals (white-and-blue-vested or otherwise) and stretching out on the grass afterwards with a hot dog and a free beer. Nice.
Race-wise, first C&C vest home was Al Pritchard, fourth in 17:22 and first V40, though Paul 'Makka' Makowski bettered that, second place and first V35 in his Royston garb. Iain Wood was a handful of seconds behind Al in fifth. In sight of them in seventh came Alex Eggeman, and Andrew Shields (first V45), Max Schwiening (first U18), Chris Johnson and Jon Anderson all broke the twenties - both minutes and placing. The girls' race was rather a triumph for us too - congrats to Sarah Wightman (20:57 and first V35) and Helen Grant (22:04, V50 champ) for occupying two-thirds of the podium; what's more, Beth Jones and Paula Kessler (first V45) took the next two places as well, with Margaret Phillips seventh (and again fastest V55) - great going everyone. Plenty more good performances - too many to mention, so check out the results. And a particular thanks and congrats to Teal and the Muddy Mucky Munkeys team for bringing us all that perfection.

Help needed for our home Kevin Henry event - Thursday 5 September 2013
The final race of the Kevin Henry Series on Thursday 5 September 2013 is our home event at Wilberforce Road. As hosts we are to time, sign and marshal the course, to keep all the runners safe and on the right route. Of course, we would like to have as many of the club running as possible, but we need 14 helpers. Those of you who volunteer at parkrun will recognise the format, ie set-up, 10 x marshals, timer, drinks, 2 x finishing tokens. In the past friends, mums, dads, sons and daughters have helped - they do not all need to be club mates. They will be given full instructions, so no need to worry. If you or someone you know can help, please email me on chris@hirky.wanadoo.co.uk and nearer to the time I will send out instructions. You will probably need to be available from 5:45 until about 8 at the latest. Many thanks for your help in advance.

Haverhill Running Club Kevin Henry Race 2 - We are top of the league!
Another outstanding turnout for C&C at Kedington for Race 2 of the Kevin Henry series. This time 63 donned in blue and white. Even more impressive was 27 of the total were our ladies. A much improved start on the playing field, spread the runners out as we made our way towards and up Cock Hill and a testing mile or so, with the reward being a very quick 1 1/2 miles home. The event was impeccably organised by our hosts. Another great win for Sullivan, with Istvan taking the silver and Alastair, Alex, Iain, Graeme and John Oakes scoring for the men. A great second place for Ellen making her KH debut, with Claire, Ultra Katie (a PB I hear!) and Carla helping the ladies to a minus score - the first time this has happened for either men or ladies and really shows the power of the great team work of all 63 runners - well done to you all. A big thank you to Beth Jones for coming along, supporting and scoring - much appreciated. I have attached the points table and the full results are on the tab of the same spreadsheet. So maximum points after 2 races, just 2 to go with the next one on the speedy (as long as it is dry) Rowley Mile in Newmarket on 1st August - see you there!
