Rocky Steps marathon
After a year of boring many of you with a multitude of niggly foot and lower leg injuries I finally have a race report to file. My glass legs survived the Philadelphia marathon at the weekend!

Hereward Relay
Well, it was wet. Wet and slippy. Very wet and very slippy. Nevertheless it was a very good day out for C&C. A few of us were fortunate enough to have got the first leg - short and tarmac (except for the finishing corner where runners were forced to do an impression of Bambi on ice). Some of us took detours - John 'Can't get' En'Uff - others simply ran Egg'cellently. It was great fun and a splendidly organized event - many thanks March Athletics Club (Stephen) and Claire for putting our teams together. I am so glad they didn't allow the Ultra this year......

Tom Shines at the Valencia Marathon
Our squad at last Sunday's Valencia Marathon did rather epic things, and as they are too modest to post the news, I'll do the honours. Someone certainly has to because (and this is where you need to imagine a very fancy fanfare) Tom Stevens' 2:26:04 was the fastest marathon time for C&C since this site's records began in 2006, beating Diarmuid Ó Séaghdha's 2:28:43 at Berlin five years ago. That was good enough for fourteenth place in an elite-studded field. Massive congratulations to Tom, now mainly Sweden-based but still wearing the white and blue vest, presumably over heavy-duty thermals at the mo.
Also deserving of headlines, accolades and mass genuflection is Matt Slater, moving to eighth on that same list with an awesome 2:45:10. Phenomenal stuff, Matt.
Neil White had an extremely good one too, pushing towards the three-hour barrier with a 3:03:59, with Simon Brightwell adding to his large collection of quick marathons in 3:17:52 and Darren Clerkin storming his first marathon in C&C colours with a 3:38:04.
I did say it was all rather good.

St Neots HM
Perfect conditions for C&C in SN's HM. Our girls led the way with Claire Somerton finishing 1st with Carla Brown finishing 8th and Stacey coming in 14th with a PB. The guys weren't going to be out done with 4 in the top 10 led by Mike Salt in 3rd overall & 1st MV40, Alex Eggeman in 4th with a PB, Charlie Wartnaby in 5th coming 2nd MV40 & John Uff in 8th. After this lots of others came in with PB's including Ian Richardson, Chris Newall, Vic Coe, Dan Kitchie, Chris Hurcomb, Liz O'Donovan, Martyn Brearley & Karen Richardson. Lynn, Bella and I had great fun supporting you all today :)
