 NEXT JOB FOR THE MOB - this Saturday!
 Our annual "mini mob match" against The Stragglers will be incorporated with
 the Crane Park parkrun 5km on Saturday 11th June at 9am. We need a mighty
 blue wave! If you're running a parkrun that day please make it the Crane
 Park one and ensure that parkrun has you registered as Ranelagh. Please also
 wear club kit if you can. It is also the date for the Crane Park parkrun
 anniversary.  Bring your food to the Shot Tower after the event where cakes
 etc. will be needed to mark our victory / commiserate a defeat.  As ever,
 come by foot / bike / public transport if you can. If you have to drive
 there, the best parking is to turn off Hospital Bridge Road and use the
 street parking bounded by Crane Park, Hospital Bridge Rd, Staines Rd and
 Mill Rd (Fulwell Park Av, Augusta Rd, Lisbon Av, etc.).  There is a little
 bit of a one-way system but there is plenty of parking though runners may
 have to park some way from the finish area. Venue details:

 RICHMOND 10k  Sunday 19th June   
 At the time of writing we have already received nearly 600 entries,
 including about 80 from Ranelagh..
 Race Director Rick Jenner writes:
 'It's a little over a week until our 10k on 19th June at 9am. If you haven't
 run before it's a great flat, fast course, much of it on the riverside, and
 usually a great fun summer event. There is still time to enter here:
 and encourage your friends to do likewise. The race is also raising money
 for Peter Wright's treatment so please take the opportunity to donate when
 you register. Hannah Doyle adds: "We're in need of volunteers to help ensure
 it's a success. If you can help out with marshalling, water stations, set up
 or finish, please email Hannah Doyle as soon as possible, at
 ranelagh10khelpers@gmail.com. If you're running, but willing to help before
 or after the race, that's also much appreciated so do let us know."
 Cindy Croucher writes:
 "We have been contacted by Dr Josephine Perry who runs Performance in Mind,
 a sports psychology consultancy. She is also a regular contributor to
 Athletics Weekly, addressing the psychology of running and racing. She loves
 seeing how athletes, when they develop a greater understanding of their own
 psychology, can improve their performance and feel more comfortable and
 confident doing so. Josie has offered to run a workshop at the club 'Using
 Sport Psychology to perform at your best' which will cover some of the key
 concepts and techniques used in sports psychology which athletes can use
 when entering potentially stressful sporting situations to feel more
 comfortable and in control to ensure they are able to perform to their
 maximum potential. The workshop is on Tuesday 14th June at 8.30pm after
 training (cunningly just before the club 10k!). If you are interested in
 attending, there is a sign-up sheet in the clubhouse. It is free to attend
 but spaces will be limited and on a first-come-first-served basis!!
 Contributions for refreshments will be appreciated."

 Rick Jenner writes:
 "The Men's And Women's Running Awards 2016 need helpers. (And there might be
 some free kit in it for you too!)
 They have kindly asked us to help, and need runners of all abilities and
 levels, to put a range of running kit, nutrition and gadgets through their
 paces. Then to provide honest and frank reviews and ultimately determine
 which brands and products walk off with the awards. Testing takes place
 during August 2016 and you will need to be able to collect and return any
 kit to the clubhouse during that period.
 To register your interest and get more information please email Jayne
 Bennett at awards@wildbunchmedia.co.uk asap.
 (Please note this is for Ranelagh Harriers only, do not share with any other
 people, non-club members will not be accepted.)"

 DORKING 10 miles  Sunday 5th June
 The organisers of the Dorking 10 seem to have a direct line to the weather
 gods. Or else the good men and women of the Dorking club committee meet at
 midnight on the eve of the race on some dark and bosky slope of Box Hill to
 perform the ancient and secret "no rain" dance. Either way, they should
 patent it, for it works every time. Hot and sunny. Sunny and hot. The
 weather forecasters did their best to tease us with estimates of up to 27
 degrees, but on the day it was probably about 25, with a little cooling
 breeze in places. This is where Crocodile Dundee comes in: "Call that hot?
 THIS is hot!", pointing the while with his oversized knife to a thermometer
 nudging 40. OK, Croc, we take your point, but to us pale and pasty Brits it
 seemed quite hot enough. 

 We had about thirty starters in a field of some five hundred. Richard
 Gregory and George Howard made cautious starts but soon began to move
 through the field. By the three miles point Richard was up in the top ten,
 and feeling good to replicate or improve on last year's 3rd place. But soon
 afterwards he was to be seen shaking his head. "Hamstring's gone," he
 muttered, and before long he was obliged to call it a day. This left George
 as the leading Ranelagh man but he was already looking a bit uncomfortable
 in the conditions. By eight miles George was red-faced and definitely
 struggling and Jonathan Smith, with a well-judged effort, was leading the
 Ranelagh pack. Jonathan it was who led us home in 19th place and more
 importantly took the Callis Cup club 10 miles championship. Chris Bundhun
 also finished strongly and passed George in the closing stages. Ian Kenton
 and Richard Kimber were not far behind.   

 Next along came Megan de Silva, a little miffed after holding second place
 for most of the race, only to watch two rivals speed past in the closing
 stages. But she cheered up when she discovered that two of those ahead of
 her were not Surrey-qualified, thus giving her the county silver medal. Our
 second woman home was Laura Blazey running her first 10 miler, but she too
 was ineligible for the county. So it fell to Marie Synnott-Wells and Suzy
 Whatmough to complete the team and secure the bronze medals. For good
 measure there was another county bronze for Marie in the W45 class.        

 GREEN BELT RELAY Saturday 21st - Sunday 22 May
 Results were in the last e-news, but here's a report from Nick Twomey:

 "The Green Belt Relay (GBR) is a 220 mile relay race around London broken
 into 22 stages over 2 days with teams of 11 runners competing, running a
 single leg per runner both days. A total of 40 teams were competing with
 Ranelagh Harriers entering three teams who would later be known as Ranelagh
 1 (Mixed Vets Team), Ranelagh 2 (Open Mixed/ fast team) and Ranelagh 3 (Open
 Mixed / fun team).

 The adventure started early at Hampton Court at 8:30am as Kirsty Bangham
 (running for Team Bushy) led out the runners for stage 1 as one of the
 marshals for the controlled start to cross over the road before the action
 started and the fun times began! Two minibuses and one car would make up the
 logistical fleet to see the Ranelagh trio of teams safely around to all
 corners and crevices of the outskirts of London. A massive thank you must go
 out to the drivers of the vehicles, namely: Dave L, Mark, Rob, Ted, Leanne
 and also those who drove some cars to various points!

 The key ingredients to a successful running time is the precarious balance
 between navigation and speed...too much of either ingredient generally has
 spelt out disaster in past years. The GBR however had publicised the
 presence of the Map my Run and View Ranger apps (other GPS mapping apps are
 available) which could have any stage's route loaded in to aid in navigating
 the sometimes challenging course along with the trusty paper maps. Indeed
 with this technological addition many of us thought that there wouldn't be
 repeats of additional miles being added to our stages due to deviating off
 course. Vaughan Ramsay was one of the first to prove this thought wrong as
 he crossed stage 4's finish line from the opposite direction than intended!

 The more competitive members of the three teams were eagle-eyed at the start
 of their stage to see whether the coveted green t-shirt presented to the
 first male and first female on each stage would be attainable and despite a
 number of 2ndplaces for many of our men and women only the 51 year old Marie
 Synnott-Wells was able to become the proud owner of a green t-shirt on stage
 17 of day 2 over 2 minutes ahead of the second woman. The closest man to the
 green t-shirt in respects to time was probably Jonny Smith on stage 7
 finishing 3rd a mere 38 seconds behind 1st place.

 Day 1 finished with Ranelagh 2 sitting in 5th place overall and 2nd in the
 Open Mixed category a mere 7 mins 15 seconds behind Thames Hare & Hounds.
 Ranelagh 1 were sitting in 16thoverall and 4th in the Veteran Mixed category
 with Ranelagh 3, 37th and 23rdin the Open Mixed category and rumoured to be
 competing for the toilet seat trophy awarded to the slowest team to complete
 the course. The majority of the Ranelagh runners (28 of us) who were staying
 overnight pitched up to a lovely pub for dinner to refuel after day 1 and
 there were a few beverages to be seen also. A lovely surprise personally was
 the presentation of a fantastic birthday cake at the end of the meal to
 celebrate my birthday the previous day...it was great to have spent my first
 day in'a new age category with such a great group of people, thanks!

 Day 2 came far too quickly with a prompt departure from the hotel at 7am to
 set the runners off once again! Indeed the weather even held up for us with
 the sun breaking through occasionally. Stories of tired legs and muscles
 filled the air during the day but onwards we all proceeded, tackling any
 logistical hurdle placed in our way...Ted 'the rocket' Mockett finding a
 hidden talent in rally minibus driving should he feel the need for a change
 in career at any point!

 The standings at the end of day 2 read very similar to day 1 with Ranelagh 2
 finishing in 5th place overall and 2nd in the Open Mixed, Ranelagh 1, 20th
 and 4th in the Vets Mixed and finally Ranelagh 3 in 38th and 23rd in the
 Open Mixed but not slow enough by over an hour to claim the toilet seat
 which went to Pembroke Athletica. There were some strong stand-out
 performances over the weekend from some usual suspects as well as some
 surprise performances! Megan de Silva started the team off on stage 1 and
 brought the team home on stage 22 in two very strong performances to achieve
 2nd woman in both. Dave Ready is a real up and coming talent with two big
 performances, and day 2 rewarded him with 2nd on stage 14. There are many
 other personal achievements too numerous to do justice to in this write up
 but each stage and each runner has its own tales of highs and lows, ups and
 downs and right and wrong directions! 

 A massive thank you to Leeanne and Ashleigh who were super troopers with the
 organisation, a great deal of time and commitment was shown by them both to
 make the weekend so enjoyable and stress free. Thank you to all the runners
 who baked cakes, looked after each other and cheered on all those taking
 part. I'll apologise now for the people I have missed out but a thank you to
 all involved for running, cheering, organising, marshalling, caring and for
 being part of the best running club in the world! GBR weekend...it just gets
 better and better each year...four teams next year?

 'If those muscles are burning then you sure are learning!' Twomey, 2016."

 It was Ranelagh's turn to host and upwards of 90 youngsters turned up to run
 on a circuit in the Park across the road from the clubhouse. As usual it was
 first-timers who dominated the front of the handicap, including Theo Doyle
 who was second home. Our fastest boy was Matthew Beal who recorded 6.29,
 only four seconds behind the fastest boy of the day - although he in turn
 was eclipsed by Stragglers' (and Ranelagh second-claim) Maisie Jensen's
 5.43. Fastest girl representing Ranelagh was Lexi Keech who just beat ten
 minutes. Team-wise the Flaming Penguins extended their overall lead with
 Ranelagh again in third place.

 WESTMINSTER MILE  Sunday 29th May
 Runners were set off in over twenty waves which included everything from the
 national road mile championship to a race for former Olympians. In the Adult
 3 race, Phil Aiken ran 7.14 just two seconds ahead of Alan Davidson. Pausing
 only to change his vest Alan then turned out in the parkrun wave, where he
 recorded 7.34. Kirsty Bangham was a little ahead on 7.15. Harriet and Rose
 Wiltshire competed in the Family Race 7 and ran 6.20 and 7.13 respectively
 for 1st and 3rd in their age group. In the British Junior Championship,
 Lydia Louw was 2nd in the U11 age group with a time of 5.45, while brother

 "I'm not usually fussed about medals from half marathons, but after the
 Buxton Half Marathon I'm wearing my medal with pride - I think that was the
 toughest course I've ever run, nothing flat - all up or all down - punishing
 in either direction. Also one of the friendliest, and definitely the best
 value event I've done. Winning men's time was around 1.17. I think we need
 to get some teams up from Ranelagh Harriers!"

 WIMBLEDON COMMON TRAIL RACE 2  5 miles  Wednesday 1st June
 In contrast to the first of Andy Bix's summer evening trail races, this one

 still largely dry despite earlier rain. Again it was the Clapham and Fulham
 clubs who dominated, but John Shaw ran away with the over 50s prize for
