Kevin Henry - C&C
Don't forget - Thursday is Kevin Henry league night. It's the last fixture if the season, and we're hosting at Wilberforce Road. The race starts earlier than usual, at 7pm. No registration, no entry fee, just turn up and run - but you must be wearing the famous C&C vest. No-one is too slow and everyone who runs earns us a point. Hopefully we can confirm the league victory in all categories.

Kimbolton Half
Rio-esque, the good results keep on coming for C&C. Triumph and glory from scenic and distinctly up-and-down Kimbolton, where the phenomenal Jonathan Escalante-Phillips struck gold with a race win in 1:11:55, which is rather rapid, I think. Not too far behind was Axel Finke, fifth in 1:17:41, and Matt Slater and Nick Osborn, battling it out for seventh place (Matt took it by three seconds, just outside 1:19). Andrew Shields had a superb category win in 1:21, giving fellow V50 Mike Difranco (1:54) no chance. In the women's race, two seconds separated Katherine Hymers and Isabelle Lemasson (1:33) and they topped the Senior category; unfortunately half a dozen vets pipped those youngsters to the top prize. Elizabeth Bryans and Margaret Phillips ran fine times, but Margaret was beaten to her category prize for once, which may at least help with the household silver polish bills. Nice one, all.

Stirring news from the Stour Valley Path where our own Sam Lewsey and Alex Copley conquered the 100km trail. It's not for the faint-hearted; ultra aficionados, including armchair ones like me, will note it's worth two UTMB qualifying points; 128 started, 85 finished. Alex's 12:26 for 24th place was impressive enough, but Sam ran a spectacular 10:46 to win the women's race, only being beaten to Cattawade (me neither) by five chaps.
I am in awe. Congratulations both.
UPDATE - Sam has written an epic and wonderful report for her blog. You must read it.

Riverside Runners 10K
Lots of success to report from the Riverside Runners 10K in St Neots. Chris Darling was his usual speedy self, taking the men's victory in 34:15, and Becca Frake completed the double, winning the women's event in 40:36 (having done the same at the Haverhill Kev 2˝ days before). Huge congratulations to both. What's more, Nicola McBride's good form continued, earning her third place and first V45. And Glyn Smith will bemoan the dearth of category opponents as he clocks up another V70 win, but 47:33 will pretty much do the job regardless. Lots more to be chuffed about too - see the link for full details.

Haverhill Kevin Henry
News from Haverhill - full C&C individual results are now up (thanks to our KHL correspondent for those). Becca Frake and Fiona Hughes were our superstars of the evening, placing first and second in the women's standings, while Matt Slater (third) and Peter Cooke (fourth) were our quickest men. Great to see so many out, particularly those on début.
In the team events, our male runners were beaten into second place by a strong Ely team, but our females were again invincible. That all means that in the overall competition with only our home event to come, we are still ahead in male, female and overall standings. And, if my arithmetic and understanding of the league scoring system stand up (both dubious), we are now unbeatable in the male and overall categories and Cambridge Tri can tie with us in the females if they win at Wilberforce and we come last. Stick the champers on ice, I think.

Cancellation of Cambridge Parkrun tomorrow
Unfortunately due to over-running upgrade/repair works at Milton Country Park, tomorrow's Parkrun has been cancelled. Next week's Parkrun (13.08.16) together with Junior Parkruns on 07.08.16 and 14.08.16 have also been cancelled. Nearest alternative events are at Wimpole Estate or Huntingdon, but these are both likely to be busy, so allow plenty of time for parking.

Haverhill Kevin Henry
Tonight's (Thursday's) crucial matchup in the Kev, hosted by Haverhill RC, is at Kedington as in recent years (Arms Lane, postcode CB9 7QQ). 5K as ever, with a climb out of the village and an excellent downhill back in. C&C vests necessary, no entry fee. Party with barbecue (cheap!) and music after! Full info at the HRC website.
Hopefully we'll all be there. Everyone. You included.

Lakeland 100
100 miles in the bag :-) The Lakeland 100 was an epic day-and-a-bit out. Cumbria put on some of its finest views to help me around, to not only complete the route of 105 miles with 20,000ft of ascent, but also beat my target time by over 2 hours! I was particularly pleased (and surprised) to gain places throughout the race, finishing 37th, while still feeling that I could do a lot better next time – if there is a next time…

For anyone interested in all the gory details, see the race report ;-)
