 As you may be aware, the Ranelagh website has been unavailable for the last
 week and a half. It seems that a serious problem has developed with our
 provider. Our webmaster Ken Powley has been informed: "The platform has
 failed and there is no way to fix and we are advising customers to cease and
 move to a new provider." Ken has arranged for an alternative supplier and is
 currently trying to transfer the domain name. We hope normal service will be
 resumed shortly, but the domain name transfer can apparently be a lengthy

 COAD CUP 5 miles handicap Tuesday 12th July in Richmond Park  7.15pm start
 As a break from our normal Tuesday night training sessions we have our
 annual five miles summer handicap in the Park. All members are welcome to
 take part. Two pleas from our hard-working officials:
 1  PLEASE arrive early if you can. This will help avoid long queues to
 register and assign handicaps.
 2  If you haven't run in a club event before, please e-mail our handicapper
 Angus Cater angus.cater@gmail.com  to let him know you're thinking
 of taking part. He will need some idea of your pace - e.g. a parkrun time or
 just a guesstimate. This doesn't commit you to running but will also save
 time at registration

 Saturday 16th July
 The Elmore 7m is on a rolling country lanes course and is held in
 conjunction with the Chipstead Village Fair and Flower Show. Start time is
 2pm.  Details and entries:.  Only 16 Ranelagh entries so far!
 After the Elmore comes the Elmbridge 10km on Sunday 26th July, with a 9am
 start at the Xcel Leisure Centre by the river at Walton-on-Thames. It's a
 flat course, part road and part Thames towpath.  Entries here:.
 25 Ranelagh entries so far. 

 It's the Wedding Day race in Bushy Park on Friday 29th July, starting at
 7.30pm. It's a flat 7km, partly grass, partly tarmac but all inside the
 Park. There's a mob match trophy for the club with the biggest turnout, and
 we have begun to view it rather proprietorially. The race isn't until the
 end of July but it's popular and often hits its entry maximum. Over 300
 entries are already in, including 40 Ranelagh early birds. Don't miss it!

 "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.

 people, non-club members will not be accepted.)"

 RANELAGH RICHMOND 10k  Sunday 19th June   
 Numbers were down a little on last year, both overall and from Ranelagh, but
 we still topped 70 blue vests in the race, out of a total of 558 finishers.
 It's a great tribute to the club that we can cope with such a home entry and
 still find enough marshals and officials to ensure a successful race. Both
 the men's and women's races were solo exhibitions of class. From the start,
 Belgrave's Phil Wicks disappeared down Riverside Drive and was never seen
 again by his pursuers. He had lead bike Hugh Jones all to himself, and
 second lead bike Aiah Songu-Mbriwa was left to make the pace for the rest.
 Wicks never let up and was rewarded with a new course record by three
 seconds and a massive winning margin of 2m 39s over London Heathside's
 Olivier le Polain. Aldershot's Georgie Bruinvels couldn't quite match that
 in the women's race but her lead over Hercules Wimbledon's Claire Grima at
 the finish was a cool 1m 44s. 

 Jackson Creegan was inside the leading Ranelagh vest, but was entered under
 the name of his first claim club Gateshead Harriers. Phil Killingley writes:
 "Jackson Creegan looked good for a medal but faded in the last km to take
 fourth. The team results miss him out from Ranelagh, lodging him with first
 claim Gateshead. David Benton completed an excellent run to finish first for
 Ranelagh in traditional mesh vest( oo-er), superb effort as a M50. He
 managed 85.0% age graded. The men's team was completed by a resurgent Jon
 Smith (tortoise) who stole past a rapidly fading Nick Impey (hare) not long
 before the line. Jon recorded a massive PB with 35:10 and Nick 35:22. The
 men were third after Belgrave and Reigate. Reigate move to the top of the
 road league table just ahead of us. Unless we are lucky and Jackson counts
 for us under league rules, in which case we might be out in front.

 First lady was Megan de Silva with a 2s PB over her London 10km time-37:31
 and 4th lady overall in a swift field. The ladies team of Megan, Laura
 Blazey and Marie Synnott-Wells was second after West 4 and should be at the
 top of the road league table. In the Surrey Championship they went one
 better and took the gold medals. 

 At the front, Phil Wicks did pretty well to knock 3s of the course record.
 And a slew of PBs were recorded. I suspect Alex Morgan's 36:24 was a PB and
 David Ready 38:11 certainly was."

 David Benton will take the Flash Gardner Cup as the leading finisher
 representing Ranelagh and the Whitlock-Welch Trophy for the best age-graded
 performance by a first-claim member was won by Marie Synnott-Wells whose
 80.8 rating put her half a point ahead of Steve Whitehead.

 Ken Powley adds:
 "The race produced a number of changes to our vets all-time rankings:
 Men O/50  David Benton moves into 5th Best Time for Ranelagh  and Trevor
 Maguire  moves into 20th Best Time for Ranelagh
 Women O/45   Ann Kearey,  Sally Dell and  Sally Yau  move  into  13th, 14th
 and 15th Best Time respectively for Ranelagh.
 Women O/55   Fiona Hopwood moves into 5th Best Time for Ranelagh and Anna
 Reichwald moves into 6th Best Time, with Sally Bamford in 11th Best Time for

 Last word to Race Director Rick Jenner:

 MINI-MOB MATCH v THE STRAGGLERS at the Crane Park parkrun  Saturday 11th
 Phil Killingley reports:
 "It was a home venue this year for us at Crane parkrun, happily coinciding
 with Crane's fifth birthday. A large array of Blue vests and Yellow vests at
 the start attested to the popularity of this event (or at least to the
 captains' ability to twist arms) - 126 in total with Ranelagh holding the
 pre-race advantage of 70 to Stragglers' 56. 

 Ranelagh's strength at the front looked to have sealed things with
 'Integrated Transport' Eirin McDaid taking the win (he had taken at least
 six different buses to make the event). He was followed by Jon Smith and
 Marc Snaith, both of whom took the scalp of their captain. Marc was elated,
 having waited 12 years for this privilege. Indeed we got eight of the first
 ten. First junior place was Tom Bradley in 11th, who is showing excellent

 Stragglers managed first lady and M40 while Wiebke Kortum was first lady
 home for us and Michael Everard first M40. But the blue wave overpowered the
 yellow river and when Ken Powley posted the results later in the day there
 was no surprise to see Ranelagh winning healthily by 2638 to 3102." 

 Perusal of the results suggests that there was less of a blue wave this
 time, more a series of blue wavelets. They were enough to see us home, but

 VITALITY LONDON 10k  Monday 30th May in Central London
 Individual results were in the last e-news, but the UKA national team
 championship results have just been published. Our men's first team finished
 14th thanks to Ralph Street, Richard Gregory and Eirin McDaid, while Megan
 de Silva, Suzy Whatmough and Becky Northwood took our women's first team
 into 22nd place. About 200 men's and 200 women's teams are listed, though
 the numbers are bolstered by B, C, D etc teams and by the inclusion of such
 well-known clubs as "NONE" and "N/A". You wouldn't put money on Aldershot
 not winning events like this and sure enough they are at the top in both the
 men's and women's competitions. In the women's they were 2nd and 4th too!
 Results were based on cumulative times.

 TOUR OF EPSOM & EWELL  Monday 6th - Friday 10h June
 Phil Aiken reports:
 "Such was my enthusiasm to once again take part in the five day Tour of
 Epsom and Ewell that I was the first person to enter. I was duly rewarded
 with bib number 1. For some races numbers are allocated alphabetically, so
 it's not the first time I've worn number 1, but I felt somewhat conspicuous
 on learning that the numbers for the other entrants would start from 702!
 Though my performance during the week didn't merit the honour, wearing
 number 1 meant I received plenty of support. 

 The real number 1, winning each of the five races and the overall title by
 almost 6 minutes, was South London's Kevin Quinn. Back in the autumn Kevin
 was diagnosed with a hole in the heart and he had surgery to correct the
 defect four months ago. Collingwood's Lisa Rooney comfortably retained the
 women's title, finishing 16th overall. Garmin distances for each race were
 3.18m, 3.68m, 3.63m, 2.80m and 3.74m respectively."

 POLESDEN LACEY 10km  Sunday 12th June near Dorking
 Bill Neely reports:
 "Fancy something brutal for the summer? Try the Polesden Lacey 10K. I was
 lulled into complacency by reading about this 'undulating' event at a
 National Trust property and thought I'd have a pleasant Sunday morning
 there. The lashing rain didn't help, or the road shoes I wore for what is a
 woodland race. But it's the hills that make this the summer equivalent of
 the Tadworth Ten, and then some. One hill lasts more than a mile. Total
 elevation gain 750 feet. OK, it's not the Alps and I'm not fast, but doing
 one mile in six minutes followed by the next in nine tells its own story. So
 beware, the Polesden spin and puff - this is no picnic and no walk in the
 park. On the other hand, if you want to be tested, it's the one for you."
