We urgently need to find someone to help Tamsin Burland with the job of Volunteers Co-ordinator for our Ranelagh Richmond Half Marathon on Sunday 30th April. There must be somebody out there! If you can help, contact Tamsin firstname.lastname@example.org . 2XU SURREY LEAGUE and SURREY LADIES LEAGUE The final men's and women's Surrey League races will be this Saturday 11th February at Old Coulsdon, Happy Valley (women) and Wimbledon Common (men). Start times will be back to normal at 12 noon for the women (followed by U15s and U17s at 1pm and U13s at 1.30pm) and 3pm for the men (preceded at 2.30pm by all juniors). Note that the women will have a different start and finish point from the usual. It's about 2.5 miles from the South London Harriers clubhouse, so there's no need to go there except for changing and toilets. Details and maps:. There is plenty to run for - after three races our women are in 7th place but close behind two other clubs, while our men are in a tight tussle with SLH and Hercules Wimbledon for 2nd, 3rd and 4th places. If we can snatch second place it would be our best ever men's League finishing position. Details and maps for the men's race:. NEXT JOB FOR THE MOB - FEBRUARY 19th Our last mob match this season is away to Blackheath and Bromley HAC on their 7.5 miles true country course at Hayes, Kent. At their request it's a SUNDAY MORNING race starting at 11am on February 19th. It's multi-terrain with a few sections of road near the end, so trail shoes are preferable to spikes. If we can defeat the 'heathens, this will be our fifteenth mob match win in a row. As ever, we need all the runners we can get. When we last visited Hayes two years ago both clubs fielded about 60 runners. We need that many again, and more if we manage it. Unfortunately train services to Hayes will be replaced by buses on that Sunday, so travelling by rail will not be a viable option. We are setting up a car pooling scheme, look for it on Facebook. Here's a map showing the location of the B&B HQ at the Sydney Wooderson Centre in Bourne Way, Hayes (Kent) here:. There's plenty of parking in nearby roads. Note it's a ten minutes jog from the HQ to the start, which is off Addington Road, here:. If you are arriving late there is limited parking at the start, but you'll need to jog back there after the race (or get someone to take you) because the finish is back near the clubhouse. TROPHY HOLDERS Our Trophies Steward Heather Martingell would like to collect up all the club trophies well in advance of our Prize Presentation evening on April 1st. This is to allow time not only to get them all engraved with the names of their new owners, but this year we also want to have them re-valued. If you are a trophy holder please contact Heather email@example.com regarding returning it. Items can be left in the safe at the clubhouse but please let Heather know if you do this. ELLIS CUP and DYSART CUP inter-club races Saturday March 4th in Richmond Park The Ellis Cup is a men's team race and the Dysart Cup is a women's. Both run together over our men's two-lap league course of 5.5 miles in the Park. Start time is 3pm and all are welcome, register on the day. It's also our club junior championships over one lap of 2.75 miles. RANELAGH CUP SCHOOLS RACE Saturday March 11th Our annual schools race is one lap of our mob match course. Our chief official Andy Bickerstaff will be away on holiday but we have a replacement to flag the course in the person of Louise Piears. However, we do need plenty of marshals to ensure that the schoolboys and girls stay on course. Please contact Andy firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible if you can help. FINCHLEY 20 miles ROAD RACE Sunday March 12th at Ruislip This race incorporates the club 20 miles championship for the Spendlove Cup. 9am start in Ruislip despite the race's misleading name!

WHAT'S HAPPENED *************** BANK OF ENGLAND INTER-CLUB 4.9 miles, incl HEC PETERSEN TROPHY Saturday 21st January in Richmond Park (Roehampton Gate) Dave Lawley reports: "To say this is a low key event is an understatement but don't let that ever put you off running this cracking run. It's low key in the sense no one really knows what is going on, where it starts, where to run and who is going to turn up. The older gentleman giving course, turn-by-turn instructions at the start was a particularly amusing highlight. That said from all corners of a beautifully, wintry, sun-drenched Richmond Park 23 Ranelaghs found the start. It's a cracking run because it winds round the park on a different, yet challenging, course to what we're used to. So long as you follow the numerous yellow flags you can't go wrong. Now about those yellow flags... yet again it is saddening to report that someone / something decided to uproot some flags in a critical part of the course near Pen Ponds. Yours truly here discovered this, whilst in second place with Al Whatmough breathing down my neck, as for the first time during the race I could see the outstanding Ben Anderson (who led by miles throughout) running in circles, arms flailing and looking confused. He'd gone left and followed the flags but this should have been straight on. Not that we were to know this. Shortly the leading pack had grouped and were all running round like headless chickens until we spotted three Milocarians sneak through on what looked like the right course. A mad dash through some woods then put us back on course and shortly after was a marshal adorned in flags showing the correct route. We (politely as possible!) told him about the sabotage but by the sounds of it he didn't think to move from his flag station as annoyingly several other groups of runners went wrong too. So back to the race and the impact this had. The outstanding Ben Anderson amazingly managed to pick off the three sneaky Milocarians for a superb win, quite how he did this I don't know as he had it all to do with 1.5miles to go. Yours truly (angry at this point) managed to pick one off for a fourth place finish shortly followed by Al Whatmough in 6th. So instead of a Ranelagh 1,2,3 we managed 1,4,6. That's XC racing I guess and as the wise Yoda suggests: lessons learnt 'course you must know, angry more often, get'. It was inconsequential in the end as the 23 put in a great performance to snatch the win with Milocarians in 2nd and Hercules Wimbledon taking 3rd. We also won the Hec Petersen Trophy between ourselves and Ealing. The 8 to score consisted of: Ben Anderson, me, Al Whatmough, Mark Herbert getting back fit after injury (but had his works night out the night before so ran a little sideways), John Shaw who flew in at the finish, Bruce McLaren (who also went on the detour), junior Jonny Brook, and Richard Gurd. The remaining ran strongly occupying many of the subsequent positions and the Hillhouse family having a family run out with Lloyd Camp." Organiser Gwyn Jones of the Bank adds: "Apologies to some of your runners who got sent the wrong way near the ponds, apparently some clowns had rearranged some flags just before the first runners reached them." SOUTH OF ENGLAND CROSS-COUNTRY CHAMPIONSHIPS Saturday 28th January at Parliament Hill Parliament Hill is an iconic venue for major cross-country championships, offering fantastic views over London and a testing spectator-friendly course. For "testing" read "hilly and muddy", although the course is rarely exactly the same two years in a row as different sections of the Heath are taped off for conservation purposes. The senior men's race is traditionally over a three-lap 9 miles, while the women are asked to cover 5 miles. Traditional too are the junior races which take place prior to the senior events and usually serve to churn up the course into suitably "soft" going for the seniors. Well, the juniors did their best on a mild and sunny afternoon but surprisingly it never got really muddy this year. Mind you, there were sticky patches here and there and at least one or two runners went down headfirst into the infamous ditch. There were record fields totalling about 1,600 runners in the senior men's and women's races. The men's race invoked a cut-off time of 90 minutes and there were plenty of runners who didn't make the cut. An estimated 500 men were lapped by the leaders, making life difficult on the narrower sections of the course. Juniors first, then. Izzy Atkins put in a great run to finish 18th in the U15 Girls race, while brother Greg was a strong 52nd in the U17 Men. Euan and Finlay Sinclair both ran well in the U13 Boys to finish 99th and 272nd. On to the Senior Women, and the headlines came from Nic Jackson in her first Southern. From the start Nic fearlessly tucked in just behind the leading group. Gaps inevitably lengthened but Nic maintained her position. She probably didn't know it, but in the later stages she was hanging on to a place just inside the top 25 - the club honours qualification. A pack of five runners was hot on her heels down the finishing straight but Nic held them off to finish an outstanding 23rd, and hers will be the next name to be added to the honours board. Congratulations Nic! Behind her, Laura Blazey and Suzy Whatmough resumed their rivalry, Laura getting away a little in the closing stages to finish 71st, with Suzy also well inside the top 100. The scoring team of four was completed by Julia Bailey in 144th place not far ahead of Becky Northmore. The final team position was a highly respectable 12th out of 63. It was good to see 14 Ranelagh runners taking part. That Ranelagh representation was exactly duplicated in the senior men's race. Richard Gregory set out with top 50 intent but slipped back a few places as the first lap progressed. He wasn't going to slip any further, however, and remained about 60th for the rest of the race. But if he thought he was safe as Ranelagh's leading man he was mistaken. After a steady start Carl Assmundson was steadily picking his way through the field and by half way round the last lap he was on Richard's shoulder and then just a few metres ahead. Richard rallied and the pair raced it out along the home straight before Richard crossed the line two places and two seconds ahead of Carl in 61st position. There was a similar scenario between our next two finishers, Peter Haarer and Steve Whitehead. In a duel of the vets Steve gradually caught Peter, only to be thwarted at the death by a matter of two seconds. Completing the scoring team of six were the two Davids, Lawley and Ready, excellent runs both. The team placed a solid 19th out of 69 who closed in. Second claimers Jon Pepper and Jake Waldron both put in fine efforts for 13th and 42nd places. Video of the men's race here:, women's here: and lots of stills from all the races here:.

James was the record holder on the old (pre-2015) course, and so a new record looked to be on the cards. However a fall when jumping a fallen tree 2 miles from the end forced James to slow down and miss the record by 16 seconds. He said 'I just jogged in after that', which can be translated for the rest of us as 'I just retained my 3 minute lead'.. No such problem for the first lady. Nichola Jackson of Ranelagh Harriers stormed round to beat both 2nd place and the previous record by over 5 minutes. It's difficult to compare the new course with the old one, but I think her time would have put her close behind the great names of Sarah Rowell, Angela Carson and Yvette Hague who were the fastest then, but all from the last century." 1 J McMullan (TH&H) 54.24 23 Nic Jackson 62.26 (1st woman) FITSTUFF G3 10k MULTI-TERRAIN Saturday 21st January at Newlands Corner Our intrepid trio evidently enjoyed the first race in this series so much that they came back for more two weeks later - as did the winners. 1 R Sherwood (unatt) 43.24 21 F Cripps (Victory) 50.18 (1st woman) 248 Mike White 79.05 249 Heather Martingell 79.07 283 Katie Walton 91.07 RUNTHROUGH BATTERSEA PARK 10km Saturday 21st January 1 R Sale (unatt) 32.14 (chip time 32.14) 115 Llewellyn Davies 44.39 (44.20) SURREY SCHOOLS CHAMPIONSHIPS Saturday 21st January at Reigate Under 15 Boys 1 H Norman (E&E) 13.40 27 Tom Armstrong (Ranelagh) 15.29 28 Euan Sinclair 15.30 45 Matthew O'Donovan 16.09 61 Joe Murphy 16.54 Under 13 Boys 1 E Scott (E Grinstead) 11.30 46 Finlay Sinclair 13.33 FARNBOROUGH HALF MARATHON Sunday 22nd January 1 T Lambert (Winch) 1:12.01 (chip time 1:12.00) 219 Jo Peace 1:37.07 (1:36.51) 749 Mike Peace 1:54.53 (1:54.37) DENBIES 10 miles Sunday 22nd January at Dorking 1 T Lunnon (Crawley) 63.13 26 K Lo (Haywards Hth) 76.20 (1st woman) 236 Aoife Kilpatrick 106.05 LAST FRIDAY OF THE MONTH 5km Friday 27th January in Hyde Park 1 J Connor (Kent) 15.32 20 Louis Randall 17.58 25 Peter Faull 18.12 122 Paul Hodges 21.20 MARRAKECH HALF MARATHON Sunday 29th January Alastair Ritchie ran 2:04.04 (chip time 2:00.19), while Heather Martingell recorded 2:29.55 (2:26.02).

From Athletics International: One record that may never be beaten is that by Ron Hill, who trained every day (and twice a day for many years) from 20 December 1964 to his decision to have a break due to chest pains and a possible heart problem at the end of January 2017. His meticulous training diaries give every detail of 52 years and 39 days of running and he passed 151,000 miles by his 70th birthday in 2008, when he completed his ambition of racing in 100 countries and ended the record with over 160,000 miles. The European champion of 1969 and Commonwealth champion of 1970 (in his best time of 2:09:28) finished 115 marathons, all but the last (the 100th Boston marathon of 1996) under 2:52.
