Did you see him? Sky sports 4, Saturday afternoon, English Counties Cross Country Champs in Birmingham? Sam Hill, MBH youngster, in the same race as Mo Farah – well done Sam, predictably Mo showed his complete class above all other contenders finishing the 12K cross country route?(finishing in 34.41, nearly a minute ahead of 2nd placed Andy Vernon)?our Sam certainly did not disappoint! 3rd back for the Cornish mens team in a time of 40.47 in 125th place out of 285 runners.

Sunday 21st March – Sport Relief
As organising club of our local Sport Relief event may I remind all those lovely people who have offered to help out on the day if they could be at the Station House car park, Marazion for about 8.30 (car park and registration marshals at 7.30) that would be great.
Radio Cornwall will be broadcasting live from the event, Roy Mann, Mayor of Penzance will start the event, there will be live music from young new bluegrass and country band ‘Flats & Sharps’, aerobics warm up and most importantly a lot of money being raised – whether it’s one , three or six miles, if you walk, run or crawl, it’s all for a good cause – pre entries have totalled over 250 and if you haven’t done so yet you can enter on the day (?5 adults, ?2 junior (under 16) or ?10 for a family of 4 (2 adults & 2 children) – if Eddie Izzard can run all those marathons I’m sure everybody can do at least 1 mile.
Entry forms are now out for IQ Half, Cubert and Mag 7 (club entry available at club) and just also now available is this years St Ives Biathlon on June 26th
Easter Sunday 4 April.
As we have previously said our triathlon is FULL – we could have doubled the entry with the amount of people we have turned down (we can’t tho’ due to pool time/bike racking space) there’s even a waiting list to go on the waiting list!

Summer Routes and track sessions
Only a few more weeks and there will be enough daylight to go onto our summer routes (3, 5, 6 and a 7 mile cross country trek) we will also move away from the Astro park and back to the grass track at the school – yippee, it feels like it’s been a long winter!
