View from the Chair, Easter 2019

Hello all,

Easter is a time to celebrate the new, whether that’s fresh tree blossom or new websites! – Sorry I couldn’t resist the Easter reference.

If you’re reading this you’ll have probably already discovered our new site – please do have an explore beyond the front page. It’s laid out to make it easier to find out key information with a calendar showing the upcoming events very clearly. It’s designed to work effectively whatever screen you choose to use: laptop, tablet or mobile. All the information you need to train and compete should be there, easy to find.

If you find any issues or suggestions, please email the details to and we’ll do our best to fix it quickly.

If you want to suggest a news article please email and we’ll work out the best way to get the information out.

The summer season of competitions is also kicking off. We had our first Eastern Young Athletes League meeting on Sunday 14th April and the first Kevin Henry road running race on Thursday 18th April.

Coming up is our first Southern Athletics League on Saturday 27th April and Eastern Masters on Wednesday 1st May.

Of course, the biggest event of all: the London Marathon on Sunday 28th April. I know there will be lots of C&C people there helping, running and supporting.

Whatever you are doing this month, I hope you have fun.


Keith Clarke, Chair
