The course of undulating roads had a hill in the first mile and a steep hill up to the finish. Conditions were warm and very humid (23 degrees and 99% humidity) with blustery gusts of wind.


ROUND NORFOLK RELAY, SATURDAY/SUNDAY 16th/17th SEPTEMBER 2006

Ely Runners finish 3rd in tough Open Class
Stage category 1sts for Ian Day and Keith Mitchell
Stage category 2nds for John Crisp, Stephen Howard & Natalle Coles
Stage category 3rd for Darren Murfitt

A team of 17 Ely Runners competed in the 20th Anniversary of this unique 193 miles relay which comprised 17 unequal multi-terrain stages around the periphery of Norfolk. This exciting event started and finished at King's Lynn and required teams to run from Saturday morning and through the night to Sunday morning. 

The club finished 3rd of 20 teams in the Open Class and 7th overall of 45 teams. Their accumulative time of 22:09:54 was 7 minutes slower than last year but in fact better because this year's course was about 2 miles longer due to including more off-road sections. Conditions were quite hot during the day but pleasantly cool for the night stages.

Ian Vaughan-Arbuckle (now an Ely Runner) was Race Director again and has organised all 20 Round Norfolk Relays. He was supported by Ely Runners Rod Baron (Web Master, on-line entries and results) and Richard Handoll (Course Director). The Manager for the Ely Runners' team was Alan Rutterford who was assisted by Karen Roe and Ely Runners Julie Foreman and Rachel Roberts.

UK ORIENTEERING CUP SERIES 2006

Robert Campbell 1st MV40

Although now in the veteran 40-44 category, second claim Ely Runner Robert Campbell has enjoyed the most successful orienteering season of his athletic carrier with the following results:

April         3rd in M40 British Orienteering Champs (held in Sussex)
April         20th in the Elite (top open category) Race on Day 1 of JK Festival but did not finish on Day 2
               This is Britain's top orienteering competition, held every Easter
April         6th in British Elite Middle Race Championships in Wiltshire
May         13th in British Elite Sprint Race Champs in Milton Keynes
May         13th in Long Race at the Scottish Elite Champs held near Banchory  

As a result of these and other performances in qualifying races, Robert finished 9th overall and 1st Vet (O40) in the UK Cup series of races based around the top events held each spring.

Robert's success qualified him to attend the selection races held in Denmark in June for the Great Britain team for the World Orienteering Champs. He was not selected but enjoyed his debut (age 40!) in these races competing against the best British orienteers (in their 20s & 30s) many of whom are based in Scandinavia to get access to the best terrain and races.

Robert rested during the hot July and resumed training in August.


NENE VALLEY 5K ROAD RACE, PETERBOROUGH, WEDNESDAY 30th AUGUST 2006

MACHEN MOUNTAIN 10K FELL RACE, CAERPHILLY, SOUTH WALES, MONDAY 28th AUGUST 2006

Ely Runner Daniel Regan was 17th of 110 finishers in 49:40 on a gruelling but scenic course which included over 300m (985') of ascent. It was a tough run with steep climbs and uneven surfaces along forest trails and paths. The weather was fine and dry so Daniel had a 'fantastic view from the top of Machen Mountain where he was 12th but he then lost 5 places on the difficult descent.


NEWMARKET DUATHLON, RIVERSIDE SCHOOL, MILDENHALL, SUNDAY 27th AUGUST 2006

Ely Runner John Crisp finished his first duathlon (run/bike/run) 28th of about 120 competitors in an overall time of 1:20:54. His stage times were:

THORNEY 5 MILES ROAD RACE, SUNDAY 20th AUGUST 2006

Birgitta Bramley 2nd FV50

Four Ely Runners were among the 184 finishers competing on an uninteresting but flat, out and back course along the old A47 east of Thorney with two 'U' turns. This was a new course for this Cambs Road Race League event because the traditional course along minor fenland roads north of Thorney had been rendered unusable due to the new A47 bypass. Official results:

58th    Darren Murfitt         33:37          6th MV40
85th    Peter Harris           35:22          6th MV55

96th    John Turner            36:31         3rd MV60

Conditions were quite difficult, being very warm and humid plus a headwind for the second half of the race.


RACE THE TRAIN, TYWYN, WALES, SATURDAY 19th AUGUST 2006

Ely Runner Kevin Fox was 202nd of 711 starters in 2:00 (chip position and time) competing in this popular race to beat a train on the historic Talyllyn narrow-gauge steam railway which runs from the mid Wales coast at Tywyn up into the hills to Abergynolwyn and Nant Gwernol via Dolgoch Falls. The 14.75 miles (14.57 miles on Kevin's GPS) course was out and back over multiple terrain, negotiating steep ascents and descents, severe cambers, narrow sheep tracks, wooded tracks and rough meadows. Conditions were difficult due to torrential rain and strong head or side winds. After three days of rainfall, the route was slippery and in places unstable. Although he didn't beat the train, Kevin enjoyed the tough conditions and may try again another year. The only Ely Runner to have beaten the train was Kevin Ross in 2000 when he finished 115th in 1:44:45, a mere 26 seconds ahead of the engine's arrival whistle.


MACMILLAN 5 MILES CROSS-COUNTRY RACE, WANDLEBURY, CAMBRIDGE, SUNDAY 13th AUGUST 2006

Alex Tate 1st

Three Ely Runners were among the 63 finishers on a two lap undulating course of woodland paths and tracks. The running surface was softer than usual due to prolonged rainfall prior to the start. Official results:

1st      Alex Tate          27:57       1st claim  MMM
23rd    John Turner       36:29       2nd MV60
46th    Lisa Redman     44:06       4th SW

The cloudy sunshine produced mild and slightly humid conditions.


HARLOW 10 MILES ROAD RACE, SUNDAY 6th AUGUST 2006

Two Ely Runners were well up among the 513 finishers competing on a fast undulating course of urban cycleways, roads and parkland. Official results:

15th    Ian Day             1:01:43
37th    Glyn Loveday    1:05:24

Even though the race started at 9:30 am, conditions were very hot.


EVAC 5K CHAMPIONSHIPS, CAMBRIDGE/GRANCHESTER, SUNDAY 6th AUGUST 2006

There were 3 Ely Runners amongst the 64 finishers competing over a fast 5k loop from Cambridge and back via Granchester.  Official results:

6th     Alfredo Verna       18:07    4th MV40   (WAVA 76.57%)
8th     Stephen Howard   18:16    5th MV40   (WAVA 74.57%
27th   Maurice Reed       20:32    9th MV40   (WAVA 67.07%)

Conditions were very hot and sunny with a light wind.


WIBBLY WOBBLY LOG JOG, 4.78 MILES, BRANDON FOREST, FRIDAY 4th AUGUST 2006

There were 5 Ely Runners among the 298 finishers in this popular but demanding cross-country race. The undulating course of uneven and twisting forest tracks was a similar distance to last year but more difficult so times were slower. Official results: 

12th     John Crisp            30:10        venue best position
23rd     Stephen Tovey      31:59
37th     Simon Jackson     33:10        venue PB and best position

RUNNERS CANOE ACROSS THE WASH AND BACK, SATURDAY/SUNDAY 29th/30th JULY 2006

Demonstrating that running provides good health and a basis for any sports or pastimes, Ely Runner Brian Partridge and former Ely Runner Mark Turner canoed across the Wash in their Ocean kayaks last weekend.

They started from Snettisham on Saturday morning and took 7 hours to reach Skegness. Brian reported that it was great trip out with smooth seas, seals accompanying them at close quarters most of the way, and the only lowering of morale was not being able to see any land half way across. This required getting their maps out, plus GIS and compasses to plot their course so they didn't head out into the North Sea towards Oslo!  Amazingly they made it precisely to Gibraltar Point and - after 6 hours at sea - were told by a nature warden they couldn’t park there! They then headed up to Skegness for some beer and camped overnight before setting out on the 5 am tide on Sunday morning.

The return trip wasn’t so much fun with strong winds (against and across), 8 foot waves which were tough to paddle through, and rain. They pushed themselves to the limit to get back and did so in 6 ˝ hours to make landfall at Heacham – about ˝ mile short of their launch point but the wind and tide had started to go against them.

Brian is already out running again to train for another challenge - the Beachy Head Marathon in October. Several Ely Runners have entered this scenic but hilly (3,500 feet of climb) event of 26.2 miles of cross-country tracks over the South Downs.
