We're still very much recruiting volunteers for our 10K on 18th June. Many of our regular helpers aren't around this year (and deserve a year off!) so if you've never volunteered and aren't running, please consider lending your time. It's great fun and you'll be done by 10:30am. Non-running friends, partners, kids all welcome to help out too. The more the merrier please! Email email@example.com ASAP please. And if you're on Facebook don't forget to 'like' and share our page ranelagh10k/) and also say you're 'going' to our event (https://www.facebook.com/events/1241019545918714/). It all helps!

The race starts at Hampton Court on Saturday morning at 8.30am and finishes at the Hawker Centre in Ham at around 6pm on Sunday evening. Everyone is invited to the Hawker Centre to join our teams in a celebratory drink or two. For more details about the event and the mostly off-road route, see:.

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. RICHMOND PARK FILM The Friends of Richmond Park have very recently launched a new film about the Park. It's presented and narrated by Sir David Attenborough. "Richmond Park is not just a local park it's London's own National Nature Reserve with thousands of species of flora and fauna," Sir David explains, "but with 5.5 million visitors each year, the Park is under immense pressure. However, as visitors we can all help to protect it through simple actions so that it will remain a wonderful place for the enjoyment of future generations". There are two versions - a short 4min version and the full length film which is 21 minutes. Here's the link:. Incidentally, many Ranelagh members are also members of the Friends of Richmond Park. If you are interested in joining it's only a tenner per year. Go to get-involved. TH&H PARKLAND RELAYS Wednesday 14th June at 7pm in Richmond Park Peter Fordham writes: "I am again organising the men's entries for the annual Parkland Relays in Richmond Park. This is one of the best summer events in the area, where 100 teams from the major clubs in the area compete in a 4 leg relay of about 2.9 miles. It starts at Spankers Hill Wood and near to Pen Ponds car park. Last year we put up 3 teams, with our 'A' team coming a creditable 6th overall and our Vets 'A' Team 17th overall. Let's see if we can beat the turnout and positions this year. As demand from clubs is high, please let me know as soon as possible if you can run, so that I can secure team entries. If the 7pm start puts you under too much pressure, it is possible to run one of the later legs. A gathering for prizes, food and rehydration will be at the Telegraph Inn, Putney Heath. Please contact me firstname.lastname@example.org For women's entries please contact Phil or Becky at email@example.com.

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. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org ." RANELAGH JUNIORS The joint Stragglers/Ranelagh junior handicap series began on Thursday 27th April. There are six events altogether, the first took place at the Hawker Centre, the second and third are from the Ranelagh clubhouse on Thursday 18th May and Thursday 8th June and the remainder are back at the Hawker Centre. Registration is from 7pm for a 7.30pm start. Full details:. TECHNOLOGY and ADDICTION TO EXERCISE Josie Perry from St Mary's University writes: "It was great to come and chat to Ranelagh Harriers about sport psychology last year. I hope everyone is racing well and enjoying their sport. I am now getting back into the swing of things, starting with a big research study. The research is in an area that I thought may be of interest to your members; whether the use of technology impacts the risk of addiction to exercise in ultra-endurance athletes. I am looking at use of devices like sports watches, GPS tracking systems, Garmin or Strava logging and Training Peaks and also blogging activity and social media use. I am looking for runners (who have competed at Marathon distance or over), cyclists (who regularly ride 100km or over) and triathletes (who compete at Half ironman distance or over) to complete the survey. It can be found here:. It should take less than 10 minutes to complete and if the athlete leaves their contact details they will be able to get personalised results around their risk of addiction to exercise." KNEE PAIN RESEARCH Andy May-Heggie at the University of Roehampton writes: "We are currently running a gait retraining study that is aimed at reducing/eradicating knee pain during running and we need participants. Previous research has shown that knee pain can be reduced with a shortening of stride length but it has not yet been quantified what this reduction in stride length has on performance and psychological wellbeing. Do you run a minimum of 2x 5km per week and experience knee pain whilst running? We are looking to recruit 18-40yr old male and female runners for a study aimed at reducing knee pain. As part of the study each participant gets a 3D lower body biomechanical analysis and a full gait retraining program free of charge with the aim to run pain free.

I was delighted to win my 5th African title. But what was even more pleasing was seeing the variety of African countries participating...the likes of Libya, Senegal, Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt, Kenya to name a few. A few years ago it would be mostly limited to maybe South Africa, Zimbabwe & Mauritius. There's still a lot of work to be done in developing triathlon in Africa but it was heart warming to see the growth in countries participating. Quick stopover for me back home in London, recovery & onto Japan tomorrow for WTS Yokohama."
