Race Director Rick Jenner writes: "Many thanks to those who have already volunteered. There is still room for more help on the day - marshalling, giving out water, helping at the start and/or finish etc. Can you help, or know someone that can? Even if you are running in the race, you could still be useful at the start or finish. Or maybe you have friends or family who wouldn't mind helping while you're running? If you can help, please contact Rick Jenner at email@example.com with your mobile number and whether you're running or not." Total entries at the time of writing are approaching 700, including a staggering 100+ from Ranelagh! Entries are still being accepted here: BARBECUE Sunday 21st June at the clubhouse Following the 10k, we'll be having our usual barbecue back at the clubhouse - all welcome, no need to book, just turn up.. MINI MOB MATCH Saturday 13th June at the Kingston parkrun. 9am start Our annual parkrun mini mob match against the Stragglers will take place on Saturday 13th June. It's Stragglers' turn to be "at home" and they have chosen the Kingston parkrun, which starts and finishes on the towpath close to the Hawker Centre. Phil Killingley writes: "While Ranelagh's cross country mob is on an unprecedented seven match winning streak, a 5km parkrun in Stragglers' back yard is a different kettle of fish. Please do come and boost our mob numbers at Kingston parkrun (from the Hawker Centre, Lower Ham Road) this Saturday 13 June, starting 9am. And make sure that you bring your barcode and that your parkrun profile has you down as running for Ranelagh, otherwise you won't score for us. As an incentive, Stragglers are offering free post match refreshments, whoever wins! Not sure we'll scare the non club runners by doing our mob match chant at the start for this, but play it in your head anyway!" parkrun REGISTRATION If your parkrun registration doesn't already show you as a member of Ranelagh Harriers, please take a moment to update it.

STRENGTH and CONDITIONING SESSIONS Head coach Karen Weir writes: "The Ranelagh coaches will be putting on monthly strength and conditioning sessions on a Tuesday evening after training. These consist of a few short but very specific exercises for runners, that can then be repeated at home. If the weather is good we'll be outside where there is a little more room, however if it's wet we'll try and cater for as many people in the clubhouse as possible. Sessions will start at 8.30pm and be led by different coaches each month. Remaining dates/coaches are as follows: Tuesday 30th June - Wiebke and Vicci, 28th July - Chris and Peter, 25th August - Karen ".

RANELAGH JUNIORS Check out what's happening in our junior section here:. STRAGGLERS JUNIOR HANDICAP SERIES The junior handicap series is held on Thursday evenings between April and August at the Hawker Centre off Lower Ham Road in Kingston. The remaining dates are: Thursday 25th June - Registration 7 p.m. for 7.30 p.m. start Thursday 16th July - Registration 7 p.m. for 7.30 p.m. start Thursday 27th August - Registration 7 p.m. for 7.30 p.m. start Runners are allotted a start time depending on their previous performances, with the slower runners starting first. First time runners are given a handicap according to their age. The course is just over 2 km on the grass area in front of the Hawker Centre. It consists of four laps of the perimeter of the grass area, which will be marked out. After the end of the fourth lap the runners will cross the finish line and go down the finish funnel in the order in which they crossed the line. New or inexperienced runners, if they find 2 km a bit far, can run one lap - they will be given a time, but their results will not count towards any individual or team scores. Points are scored for your club according to finishing position and personal best times. First timers receive a medal for completing the course. In each race medals are awarded to the first boy and first girl (regardless of their overall place), and further medals are awarded to the 2nd and 3rd overall places (whether boys or girls). The overall trophy and shields for first, second and third places and the team trophy will be presented on the last Thursday of either September or October. We will announce the actual date as widely as possible. In order to take part in the junior handicap, entrants must have a consent and medical form signed by a parent or legal guardian. See here:. Please pre-register with coaches Colin, Heather or Maia.

WHAT'S HAPPENED *************** DORKING 10 miles Sunday 7th June If you're planning a barbecue or a summer fete next year you could do worse than to fix the date for the day of the Dorking 10. It always seems to be fine and sunny for this race. Hot, too, sometimes, but not this year. A few complained of rising humidity in the closing stages but generally running conditions were good. This was reflected in the result with the leading 24 men all on or inside the hour. Happy to relate, five of these were from Ranelagh, and there were three more across the line within another minute or so. On the women's side 17 beat 70 minutes, two of them from Ranelagh. Phil Killingley and Richard Gregory led the Ranelagh contingent from the start, setting off fairly steadily and soon beginning to pick up places. Before the half-way point was reached Richard was chomping at the bit and pressed on, continuing to gain places. The tough last couple of miles found him up to third, though with a couple of Hercules runners chasing hard. Richard didn't waver, however, and strode into the slightly amended finishing straight in a clear third place. As this race also constitutes the Surrey Championships, Richard won the county bronze medal. Phil plugged on strongly too, never losing too much to Richard and finally emulating last year's sixth place with a time a few seconds faster. It was a pretty close thing for the third Ranelagh spot, but Steve Whitehead beat off all challengers to finish 11th and 2nd over 40, just 8 seconds behind the category winner Ryan Harris of Reigate. That was a county silver medal for Steve and not surprisingly Richard, Phil and Steve captured the open team awards and the county gold medals. George Howard and Ted Mockett were our other two inside the hour - indeed, inside 59 minutes. This was a PB by nearly a minute for Ted. Within striking distance of the 60 minutes barrier were Nick Twomey, Jonathan Smith and Kris Davidson. International on the country Georgie Bruinvels was the clear winner of the women's race in 58.46. Whether the sprint finish from George and Ted was their own private battle or a desperate effort to remain in front of Bruinvels is a matter of conjecture! Megan de Silva was in third place in the women's race pretty well throughout, accompanied most of the way by Dave Lawley, Peter Faull and Richard Kimber. Mick Lane was 5th over 50 and Mike Peace was 6th over 60. Marie Synnott-Wells finished 16th in the women's race and was our last finisher inside 70 minutes. Subject to confirmation she will take the bronze medal in the county W45 championship. Becky Hall, with a 73.59 effort, was our third counter for the women's team event. Although beaten again by this year's high-fliers Guildford and Godalming, the Ranelagh team took the county silvers. Next Ranelagh woman home was Ellen Clague with a sub-80 clocking. 1 J Sanderson (Guild & G) 54.56 2 O Garrod (Epsom & E) 55.19 3 Richard Gregory 55.51 6 Phil Killingley 56.40 11 Steve Whitehead 58.08 15 George Howard 58.44 16 Ted Mockett 58.45 17 G Bruinvels (AFD) 58.46 (1st woman) 32 Nick Twomey 60.58 35 Jonathan Smith 61.05 36 Kris Davidson 61.11 49 C Grima (Herc W) 62.08 (2nd woman) 56 Dave Lawley 63.27 59 Peter Faull 63.33 60 Megan De Silva 63.35 (3rd woman) 61 Richard Kimber 63.37 68 Mick Lane 64.44 86 Rick Jenner 66.44 120 Paul Rider 68.58 130 Alexander Fordham 69.24 133 Marie Synnott-Wells 69.31 151 Simon Burrell 71.06 156 Stewart Anderson 71.34 185 Becky Hall 73.59 217 Chris Read 75.59 218 Mike Peace 76.25 231 Phil Roberts 77.04 234 Stephen Logue 77.24 265 Ellen Clague 79.20 344 Neil Preskett 85.14 368 Peter Fordham 88.15 435 Clive Naish 100.07 451 Deborah Blakemore 109.09 456 Tanya Allen 110.58 RACE FOR LIFE 5km Saturday 30th May in Regents Park Elisa Ferrua reports: "I took part in the Race For Life 5k in Regents Park on Saturday the 30th. Even if it wasn't chip timed I did it in 22.30. The atmosphere and support of people was great." COMRADES MARATHON 55 miles Sunday 31st May from Durban to Pietermaritzburg, South Africa Lloyd Camp reports: "I ran the Comrades Marathon, known locally in KwaZulu-Natal simply as "the Marathon", on 31 May in the Ranelagh colours: my 5th completion of this iconic 55 miles (88km) event. It has been 14 years since my last Comrades so I hope it doesn't scare me for as long this time before I do it again! There were about 250 UK runners in a starting field of 16,000-odd, of which 4,000 failed to finish before the 12 hour cut-off time and were bundled into the 'bale buses' ominously positioned along the route. The weather was hot, the road was long and the crowd turned out in their multiple thousands. The Comrades was started in 1921 by veterans of WW1 to raise money for the local widows and orphans of the Great War, and 'The Comrades of the Great War' did sterling work in raising awareness of the horrors of that war, running in plimsolls and rugby shorts along the rutted dirt roads of the time, largely unheralded at first and widely regarded as mavericks or madmen. The Comrades remains a festival of the human spirit, and a true test of endurance and comradeship. For the great majority, it's not a race: it's a community event where everyone is equal on the day and when South Africans welcome fellow athletes from a hundred countries. It is Everyman's race, and each of us runs it for a different reason. Comrades can be brutal not just because it is so far but because it is run only on 'gun time': the five to ten minutes one loses before crossing the start line is never regained, and there are five cut-off points along the way, each marked with an official literally firing a gun to indicate that if you have not yet crossed that mark, your race is over. Even if you cross the last line, the finish, a second after the 12-hour gun, you do not get a medal and are not listed amongst the finishers. I felt 'gun stress' all the way! Uniquely, it is run in alternate directions each year: next year is the "down" to Durban. But there is a lot of up in the down! I started slowly, slowed down, and then finished slower, but eventually reached Pietermaritzburg (my home town) in a pedestrian 11.32, in fantastic spirits and filled with joy. Come on Ranelaghs: come and feel it". 1 G Kelehe (Sth Africa) 5:38.36 9458 Lloyd Camp 11:32.31 BRISTOL 10km Sunday 31st May 1 J Chesum (Kenya) 29.18 56 L Damen (Winch) 33.39 (1st woman) 314 Paul Sinton-Hewitt 39.24 700 Julia Bailey 42.34 KENT ROADRUNNER MARATHON Sunday 31st May at Gravesend 1 S Newton (Ackworth) 2:40.42 (chip time 2:40.42) 5 H Oldroyd (UK Net) 2:53.46 (2:53.44 - 1st woman) 213 Kirsty Bangham 4:22.44 (4:22.32) 253 Ian Grange 4:35.20 (4:35.09) RUN THROUGH WIMBLEDON COMMON HALF MARATHON Sunday 31st May 1 J Tipper (unatt) 1:15.38 (chip time 1:15.38) 19 I Rea (West 4) 1:27.02 (1:27.02 - 1st woman) 431 Anne Philpott 2:10.47 (2:09.55) SELF-TRANSCENDENCE 2 miles Monday 1st June in Battersea Park 1 A Kirk-Smith (Lon H) 9.36 31 S Davis (Clapham) 10.54 (1st woman) 126 Alan Davidson 15.59 WIMBLEDON COMMON TRAIL SERIES - RACE 2 5 miles Wednesday 3rd June on Wimbledon Common This was the second of the three race series organised by Andy Bix and the Good Run Guide. It was a beautiful early summer evening on the Common, perfect for running. Even the notorious Butts were benevolently dry (-ish!). Clapham Chasers dominated the men's team again with three runners home before our first, Mark Herbert. The Chasers narrowly pipped us for the women's team prizes too, despite another individual win from Megan de Silva. This is becoming quite a habit - she has won both races so far this year and did the same in 2013, only missing a clean sweep because of running off course in the third race. Study the map before the next one, Megan! Marie Synnott-Wells was next in, leading a Ranelagh 1-2-3 in the W45 category, along with Wiebke Kortum and Heather Martingell. Bruce McLaren was 3rd over 40 and Peter Fordham was 3rd over 60. 1 T Grimes (E London) 28.42 9 Mark Herbert 31.30 17 Megan de Silva 32.31 (1st woman) 31 Marie Synnott-Wells 35.14 32 Bruce McLaren 35.19 52 Nick Fordham 38.30 57 Wiebke Kortum 38.59 62 Amrut Sharma 40.56 68 Peter Fordham 42.05 69 Heather Martingell 42.22 70 Mike White 42.30 82 Andy Woodhouse 43.59 108 Deepa Sharma 48.43 EUROPEAN MASTERS NON-STADIA CHAMPIONSHIPS Friday 15th - Sunday 17th May at Grosseto, Italy Alan Davidson reports: "I flew to Pisa then train to Grosseto (a huge baseball stadium) and taxi to Fattoria la Principina, a hotel complex 6k out and dubbed the athletes' village with race transits organised by the military. The next (hot) day I had a trip to the popular tourist destination Siena (train journey like home except the barriers failed at Sticcione not Liss!). Excitement in the evening as Sky and Astana teams stayed at the hotel for the local stage of the Tour of Italy cycle race. Main race day had a crazy mixture of weather. The early women's race walk had a gusting gale, the following men's walk had the same plus squally showers, but early afternoon the women's 10k road race had hot sunshine. Then it changed for our race - the 33c heat had also very high humidity under heavy cloud cover. The course soon left the town and was mainly on cycle paths amongst farm fields with some mentally tough long straights. But far worse was the draining effect of the humidity making running kit sodden with sweat. It felt like a 55 minute effort so it was with some relief that the finish line clock showed 51.33. It came as a shock to learn that my very modest effort coupled with the times of our two faster boys got GB&NI an M65 team bronze! We had an hour (military) coach drive from Grosseto the following morning past the resort of Castiglione Della Pescaia to a remote sports stadium which gave us a cross-country relay venue: 3 x 2k laps (team of three) with a course of rough grassland and a hard trail at the foot of a wooded hillside. On a warm morning I had the glory(!) leg taking the timing chip to the finish line (25.21 total time) where we won the team bronze again. Time left to travel to Civitavecchia (which Tosca sadly failed to reach), found a sandy beach for a welcome dip in the Adriatic then to Pisa to check on the tower (still uprightish).The Easyjet pilot kindly said you are swapping 32c in Pisa for a typical English spring day 14c wet and windy.
