WIMBLEDON COMMON TRAIL SERIES Andy Bickerstaff writes: "This is the 4th year your ever stressed Ranelagh Chief Race Organiser will be doing the trail series of races on Wednesday evenings on Wimbledon Common. The first race on 3rd May has already taken place and as predicted looked like a mob match between Clapham and Fulham. Two Ranelagh took part but it would be good to see a few more of my own club keeping their cross country skills alive over this summer and giving those clubs a race. Enter here: for the second race on June 7th or click through to number three on July 5th. As ever a free bar is provided after the race for anyone who can help me out on the evenings - please get in touch here:." RANELAGH JUNIORS The joint Stragglers/Ranelagh junior handicap series began on Thursday 27th April.

NEXT JOB FOR THE MOB Our annual "mini mob match" against the Stragglers will take place this year on Saturday 24th June, incorporated within the Bushy Park parkrun. Please note the date now, and opt for the Bushy Park parkrun that day rather than your usual favourite. STRENGTH AND STRETCH CLASSES Karen Weir writes: "Ex-Ranelagh head coach, Karen Weir, is launching a new 'Strength and Stretch' session aimed at runners looking to incorporate a strength and conditioning element into their regular training programme. The session will be held fortnightly on a Wednesday at St Mary's in Strawberry Hill and will include; warm up and mobility, specific strength exercises that target the common weaknesses in runners (using only body weight or very basic equipment so you can replicate them at home without needing a gym membership). The session will finish with a mobility and stretching component. Karen is offering the first session to Ranelagh members for £5, thereafter it is £10 a session on a pay as you go basis (or £50 for 6 sessions bought in advance). The first was on Wednesday 26th April, fortnightly thereafter, 7.45-8.45pm at the Rehab Gym, St Mary's. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to reserve your place." RECOVERY STUDIES Tom Roberts from St Mary's University writes: "I am currently recruiting for a research study looking into recovery strategies from exercise induced muscle damage at St. Mary's University, Twickenham, in return for physiological testing worth over £100. The research will take place over the summer months from May until July and the aim is to assess the benefits of varying recovery strategies following exercise. Participants will be required to come to St. Mary's University, Twickenham for 3 consecutive days for ~90 minutes on the 1st day and ~30 minutes on days 2 and 3. In return for participation we are offering free VO2 Max test and Body Fat% measurements.. For further details please email Tom Roberts at email@example.com."

WHAT'S HAPPENED *************** LONDON MARATHON Sunday 23rd April It was a record-breaking day for the London Marathon. First, once again, the size: 40,048 officially started the race, of whom 39,487 finished. Then the well-nigh perfect conditions enabled Kenyan Mary Keitany to survive a near-suicidal early pace and hang on to set a new world record for a women-only race of 2:17.01. Paula Radcliffe of course still holds the outright record at 2:15.25 back in 2003 but she was assisted by male pacemakers. There were no records in the men's race, but there was an exciting finish as the relatively unheralded Daniel Wanjiru held off a late charge from Kenenisa Bekele. Bekele had slipped behind the lead group with several miles to go and after the race revealed that a new pair of Nike shoes had led to his developing blisters, costing him possible victory. He explained: "When I was between 15 and 20k the shoes started blistering my foot. I changed the style to protect my foot more. It was difficult and changing the style affected my balance. Because of that I feel a little bit my hamstring. That's why I slowed the pace. Around 35k I was feeling better and increased the pace." In the words of the sage Homer Simpson: D'oh. Carl Selya-Hammer was the leading Ranelagh runner and retained the club Marathon champion's Winter Cup he won last year. 2016 had been a masterpiece of even-pace by Carl but this time he went out a little harder and clocked 1:16.39 at half way. He faded a little towards the end but held on to set a new PB of 2:36.30, a few seconds faster than last year's time. Carl writes on Facebook: "A new personal best of 2:36:30 (5:58/mile). Went through halfway ahead of schedule in an ambitious 1:16:39 and paid the price during some dark times over the last few miles. Only thing left to do now is soothe my aches with all the beer I can get my hands on." Nick Twomey went out hard too, and was closely tracking Carl for the first few miles. He went through halfway in 1:18.26 but ran into a bad patch around 30k and was passed by Aussie James Winch. Nick revived a bit towards the end but by then James was off down the road and on his way to recording a fine 2:41.45 for second place in our championship. Nick held on for third. We had a mini blue wave of Rick Jenner, Jonathan Smith and Ted Mockett in the low 2:50s, followed by Michael Everard and Richard Dunley also inside the three hours barrier. Here's Ted on Facebook: "Ran my first marathon today. Got cramp at 21 miles and struggled a bit from then on but still very pleased with my time." Jonathan on FB: "Chuffed to get a PB at London today with some great friends and fantastic support. Thanks to Rick Jenner for getting me through the first half and on a great PB. Well done to all the Harriers." And Rick: "What a day! Big PB at best marathon in best city in the world. Cheered on by London and lots of friends and family on the course. Tired but happy." New member Ed Perry recorded 3:06 and then it was Duncan Mallison on 3:08. Here's Duncan: "Schoolboy error at the marathon today, stood on the start line and realised I had left all my 'nutrition' in my bag, which was on the truck, which was on the way to the finish line. Clearly nutrition is over rated as I managed to negative split 1:34:42 first half, 1:33:47 second half. Delighted on the basis this time last year I could barely walk. Big thanks to Michelle Dillon for getting me back into shape. As always a fantastic day, my only gripe is that they need to start looking at how many people are running. It's packed and it's getting dangerous, I had my ankles tapped 2 or 3 times in the first 6 miles and it's carnage at drinks stations, what it must be like for those further back I can't imagine." Right behind Duncan and Mick Lane - who had been on target for sub-3 until past 30k - was our leading woman Fiona Ford. Fiona's race followed a similar pattern to Mick's in that she was sub 1:30 at half way but her pace fell away after 30k. Still she was comfortably first finisher for Ranelagh in a fine 3:09.43 and the Chris Brasher Bowl will be her reward. Bill Neely came in next: "I finished in 3.11.12. Loved it. Thank you to everyone who sponsored me- I thought of everything you gave while I gave everything." James Whistler, Michael Morris and Bruce McLaren followed. Bruce: "Despite Plan A (sub 3:10) not working, I've got to be happy with a 4 min London PB, 3rd fastest ever marathon and Good For Age secured for 2018 and 2019. 3:18:59, comfortably under 3:19!" Second placed in our club women's Marathon championship was Ria Woodfield, who was I believe another tackling the distance for the first time. Ria recorded a very creditable 3:25.50. It was a close thing for third place, the experienced Lara Werrett finishing just half a minute ahead of Becky Northmore in 3:37. Just behind them was Dave Lawley, who was not having such a good time: "I have a lot to be proud of today yet it's shrouded in disappointment as I bonked from mile 17. So, so tough to keep going with cramp in every fibre of your legs for 9 miles. BUT I DID IT! I finished and I know why: because of all the support from my rock, family, friends, Ranelagh Harriers, my amazingly talented training friends and the simply mind blowing amount you all stumped up for an amazing charity. THANK YOU!" Karen Weir came in next, and she, Colin Brett, Jim Old, Chris Cato, Mark Herbert, Simon Martin, Mike Peace and Ian Keith completed our sub-4s. Simon Ogle, Amelie Hunton, Ann Kearey and Siobhan Sharp were not far outside and the anchor man of our 33 finishers was Ian Grange. Special mentions to Mark Herbert who ran 3:42 dressed as a Fuller's Beer can, and of course to Mike Peace, now one of only eleven men who have run every London Marathon since its inception in 1981.

Two or three others qualified to represent their boroughs but were unable to take up their places. Best placed was Izzy Atkins who represented Richmond In the Under 15 Girls race and finished an excellent 4th. Lexi Keech was 43rd in the same race and in the Under 17 Girls Alice Patterson and Josie Kearey ran well for 23rd and 81st. Izzy's brother Greg was 23rd in the Under 17 Boys, just ahead of Reef Boericke 32nd, Jacob Patterson was 48th in the Under 15 Boys and Jonny Brook and Euan Sinclair 40th and 72nd in the Under 13 Boys.

This is certainly not a reflection of the quality of the race organisation, but rather the increasing number of Half Marathons now being held in the Richmond area. Arguably we offer the best value for money! Epsom's Ollie Garrod made it clear from the off that he wasn't going to let a little thing like having run the London Marathon seven days previously get in the way of defending the title he won last year. By the one mile point at Richmond Bridge he was already well clear and though Hercules Wimbledon's Ben Toomer never gave up the chase, he could not get back on terms. Garrod's winning time was over a minute quicker than last year and he had a thirty seconds lead over Toomer at the finish. Third place went to an unattached runner in his first Half Marathon, Chris Phillips-Hart. For Ranelagh, Richard Gregory cruised the first five miles down in the pack and then opened the throttle and forged through to 5th place. Nick Impey was an excellent 8th and our team for the open race was completed by Ted Mockett - another London Marathoner - in 14th. This was easily good enough to give us the team prizes, though with Ted ineligible for Surrey it was Seiko Angelo who completed our team for the county championship. As fourth Over 50 home Seiko just missed the metaphoric podium individually, but anchored the county team which took golds by a single point - Seiko, that sprint finish made all the difference!. Our next two finishers behind Seiko were fellow over 50s Trevor Maguire and Paul Doyle, and following them home was Kris Davidson. Behind Kris came the leading woman, Alice Germana' from Sutton Runners, though it was a close thing with just over half a minute covering the first three. Not far behind was Laura Blazey, running a gun time PB for 4th place, and 2nd in the county championship senior women category. For good measure Laura led the Ranelagh team of herself, Suzy Whatmough and Wiebke Kortum to echo the success of the men's team and win golds by a single point. Many thanks go to Race Director Sandra Forrest and her team for another highly successful race, and thanks also to the dozens of volunteers who marked the course, manned the water stations and filled any number of other roles. Your help is much appreciated. The race wouldn't happen without you! 1 Ollie Garrod (Epsom & E) 71.00 2 Ben Toomer (Herc Wimb) 71.30 3 Chris Phillips-Hart (u/a) 72.40 5 Richard Gregory (Ran) 74.29 8 Nick Impey 75.31 14 Ted Mockett 77.29 33 Seiko Angelo 81.42 49 Trevor Maguire 84.41 56 Paul Doyle 85.21 60 Kris Davidson 85.46 66 Alice Germana' (Sutton) 86.33 (1st woman) 67 Jo Wilkinson (Woking) 86.47 (2nd woman) 68 Jo Vickers (SLH) 87.07 (3rd woman) 79 Bill Neely 89.13 80 Laura Blazey 89.18 84 Richard Gurd 89.28 112 Lars Lundqvist 91.45 135 Philip Andrews 93.59 137 Simon Martin 94.04 169 Suzy Whatmough 96.38 171 Amrut Sharma 96.42 172 Stewart Anderson 96.45 177 Wiebke Kortum 97.33 194 Phil Roberts 98.31 197 Egis Vincel 98.53 239 Alberto Esguevilla 101.44 246 Ben Shore 102.09 298 Rachel Revett 105.49 389 Michael Osborne 112.01 530 Cathy Holman 124.14 543 Peter Fordham 125.27 564 Fiona Pugh 127.46 660 Julian Holden 147.30 668 Alan Meaden 155.35 PARIS MARATHON Sunday 9th April Also running was Alice Forbes, 4010th in 3:23.19. BOSTON MARATHON Monday 17th April Paul Doyle ran with his elder brother Brendan, finishing in 3:31.12. KINGFISHER AQUATHLON Sunday 23rd April at Morden Park This event comprises a 400m swim and a 9km run. It attracted a large field including a number of Ranelagh members competing in the colours of their Triathlon clubs - mostly Optima, one or two Thames Turbo. Archie St Aubyn was the overall winner, nearly a minute clear of Gill Sanders, who was of course the leading woman. 1 Archie St Aubyn 38.53 (swim 5.05 / run 33.47) 2 Gill Sanders 39.49 (5.25 / 34.23) 26 Jess Wenlock 45.03 (5.54 / 39.09) 28 Jenny Silva 45.08 (5.58 / 39.09) 38 Matt Elliott 46.23 (8.00 / 38.22) 52 Rachel Rowan 48.38 (7.50 / 40.48) 60 Lexie Elliott 50.12 (7.07 / 43.05) Matt and Lexie's sons Cameron and Zachary also competed in the junior races. HAMBURG MARATHON Sunday 23rd April While his clubmates were pounding the streets of London, Jonathan Moore was doing the same in Hamburg. A remarkable piece of even-paced running brought him home in an excellent 2:51. 1 T Mekkonen (Ethiopia) 2:07.26 249 Jonathan Moore 2:51.20 STRAGGLERS / RANELAGH JUNIOR HANDICAP SERIES Thursday 27th April at the Hawker Centre This was the first in the six-event handicap series held over the summer months. There were 63 runners in the main event and another half-dozen in the Minis race. Eleven clubs and schools were represented. As usual, the front of the race was dominated by "first timers" who receive a standard handicap but score just a couple of points for their teams and are excluded from the reckoning for medals. Amongst the regular runners, Ranelagh's Nathaniel Bond and Angus O'Brien were placed 2nd and 3rd boys, and Alistair Brendon's time of 7.26 was the second fastest of the day. Fastest girl of the day was Ranelagh's Harriet Wiltshire on 7.51. The Rushby boys were prominent for us, as were the Beals. As most of the Ranelagh team were not first timers they scored well, and will carry a four-point lead into the second race which is on Thursday 18th May at the Ranelagh clubhouse. In the Minis race, Cian O'Brien was first boy in second place overall.

The total ascent is 5,279 feet. In the women's race Victoria Wilkinson of Bingley won by a massive 17 minutes and beat the course record by some four minutes in a time of 3:09.19. Equally clear in second place was Nic Jackson who recorded 3:26.17 running in Preston colours. RIMINI MARATHON Sunday 30th April Gavin Jones writes from Italy: "Just let you know I'm still (clandestinely) flying the Ranelagh flag in marathons, 36 years after the first one, in Neath of all places! I did Rimini yesterday in 3 hrs 02 mins. Crumbled over the last 10k after doing first half on an over-ambitious 2:56 pace, and first 15k even faster. Trouble is that as I haven't done any shorter races in the last year I had nothing to base an expected time on, other than my wishful thinking! Oh well, I'll know for next time. You know of any flat marathons anywhere at end-May/early June?" 56 Gavin Jones 3:02.38 (chip time 3:02.36 - 3rd M55) KESWICK HALF MARATHON Sunday 30th April 1 A Twelde (unatt) 1:12.21 171 Bob Beatson 1:45.51 MILTON KEYNES HALF MARATHON Monday 1st May 1 D Hudson (BRJ Tri) 1:14.16 (chip time 1:14.14) 88 Vaughan Ramsay 1:33.09 (1:32.58) parkrun results...
