ROTHWELL RELAY Thursday 20th July at the Hawker Centre, Lower Ham Road Roy Reeder writes: "Nigel Rothwell was a regular local runner for many years and helped organise Richmond parkrun and then Kingston parkrun. Nigel devised and organised a relay event on a Stragglers' club night several years ago. He was present last year but passed away shortly afterwards. As well as lots of Stragglers, last year's event was attended by lots of Nigel's friends from 26.2. This year it would be great to see anyone who knew Nigel from Ranelagh Harriers at the event too. Teams of four will be graded on the night to try to ensure balanced teams, so please have your recent parkrun time available. The course is 2.5km. Register from 7pm and the race starts as soon as everyone is registered (around 8pm). There will food and drink available to purchase afterwards at the Hawker Centre.

WHAT'S HAPPENED *************** DORKING 10 miles Sunday 4th June There was only ever going to be one winner today. Belgrave's Phil Wicks was 100 metres clear after the first mile and simply ploughed on at a relentless pace. The Dorking course boasts a tough last couple of miles but as Wicks strode into the field at the end he looked for all the world like he was enjoying a Sunday morning training spin. He had over three and a half minutes in hand. As ever with the Dorking 10 it was a warm sunny day, though with a cooling wind on the more exposed sections of the course. As Wicks disappeared into the distance a small group formed to contest the minor placings and amongst them was Jake Waldron, running in Ranelagh colours on this occasion. Jake broke clear after half way but was being closed down again in the closing stages by Epsom's Ollie Garrod. There was only five seconds in it at the end, but Jake it was who held on for second place and the Surrey county championship silver medal. Phil Killingley made a cautious start then moved through the field before losing a few places in the closing stages. One of those who passed Phil was the in-form Nick Impey whose 56.31 in 9th place was a PB. Phil came home 15th and he, Jake, Nick and Ted Mockett finished second team in the open race. The county championship is only three to score so all but Ted won team silvers. Ted and Ian Kenton were inside 59 minutes, with Seiko Angelo (an age-graded PB), Jonathan Smith and Steve Whitehead all within a minute of the hour barrier. Seiko was beaten into second place in the Over 50 category by a matter of a few seconds and added to our county silver tally. We had five more men home inside 70 minutes before our leading woman Suzy Whatmough who recorded 71.48. Marie Synnott-Wells and Wiebke Kortum followed, while also inside 80 minutes was Julia Bailey. Suzy, Marie and Wiebke won bronze medals in the county team championship. STRAGGLERS / RANELAGH JUNIOR HANDICAP SERIES RACE 2 Thursday 18th May in Richmond Park Ranelagh were the team winners in the first event in this series of six, but this time they couldn't hold off the challenge of the title holders the Flaming Penguins. James Ricketts was the first Ranelagh finisher in third place but as he was a first-timer he did not score highly. Alfie Lafeuille was our best scorer as 2nd boy in 7th place overall. Unfortunately fast times count for nowt in this event, so although Ranelagh's Tom Armstrong and Harriet Wiltshire set the two fastest times of the day they were well down in the handicap. Tom's 7.08 was more than a minute up on the second fastest boy while Harriet's 8.03 beat all the boys bar Tom, let alone the girls! We had thirteen runners, as ever with a large contingent from the Rushby family. 1 A Oldfield (unatt) 14.47 (actual time 9.47 - first timer) 2 J Norman (Coombe Hill) 16.58 (10.58 - 1st Boy) 3 James Ricketts (Ranelagh) 17.08 (12.08 - first timer) 5 Z Rosen (F Penguins) 18.49 (12.19 - 1st Gal) 7 Alfie Lafeuille (Rane) 19.07 (9.07 - 2nd Boy) 28 Oliver Beal 19.57 (8.57) 30 Ben Rushby 19.59 (10.29) 33 Harriet Wiltshire 20.03 (8.03) 34 Nathaniel Bond 20.04 (9.04) 36 Sam Rushby 20.07 (8.37) 37 Tom Armstrong 20.08 (7.08) 42 James Rushby 20.19 (8.49) 43 Daniel Rushby 20.27 (8.27) 44 Angus O'Brien 20.29 (11.29) 46 Matthew Beal 20.32 (8.32) 55 Luke Maguire 22.41 (10.11) Teams 1 Flaming Penguins 47 (total 76) 2 Ranelagh Harriers 23 (55) 3 Coombe Hill School 15 (18) 4 The Stragglers 8 (17) 5 Sheen Shufflers 5 (17) 11 teams represented Minis 1 J Goulding (unatt) 2.48 3 Remy Lafeuille (Rane) 3.18 4 Cian O'Brien 4.52 VITALITY LONDON 10km Monday 29th May Report and individual results were in the last e-news. UK Championship team results have the Ranelagh women finishing 10th and the men 37th. SURREY COUNTY MASTERS TRACK AND FIELD CHAMPIONSHIPS Sunday 4th June at Ewell Court Vaughan Ramsay scored a hat-trick of medals. Competing in the M40 category he won the triple jump and high jump (11.32m and 1.40m respectively) and placed second in the long jump (4.97). LONDON TO CARDIFF 24 HOURS RELAY Friday 9th June - Saturday 10th June Jonathan Smith reports: "The London to Cardiff 24 Hour relay race may not be top of everyone's bucket list, and indeed many of you may never have heard of it. The race, now in its 7th year, sees teams of between 8 and 12 runners attempt to run from London to Cardiff in under 24 hours through a combination of individual and team relay stages. Ranelagh's very own boy band look-a-like, Rich Kimber, had previously entered the event several times and this year decided to see if he could enlist some of his teammates from the Ranelagh Advanced Group. To add incentive Rich pointed out that not only was the event winnable, there was also a reasonable chance of breaking the course record, which stood at 19 hours and 51 minutes and was supposedly held by a team of GB university triathletes. Whilst the event seemingly didn't hold much appeal for the true Ranelagh elites who churn out race wins for fun, a reliable core of self-described 'B team' runners inevitably saw this as an opportunity to engage in a bit of good old fashioned pot-collecting. And so the Ranelagh Regulars team was born. With only 8 members making for a team which was light on numbers, a 9th was added in the form of Beckenham RC runner Ross Brown to help spread the workload. The race kicked off on Friday evening with glorious sunshine in the grounds of Kneller Hall in Twickenham. Such was the disparity in expected finish times, the first team had already departed at 1pm, with the Ranelagh Regulars setting off last, some six hours and 41 teams later. With dramatic X-factor style music geeing up a crowd of about two people and a dog, the race director took us to one side: 'Gents, just so you know, we think you can go for the record.' Naturally we did our best to look surprised. But whilst the organisers seemed confident, there were plenty of reasons for caution. For starters this race was going to involve a lot of navigation, and much of it in the dark. And whilst Ranelagh's very own anti-compass, Nick Impey, had been left at home, the Green Belt Relay had already highlighted that half the team were 'navigationally challenged'. On top of that the team were heavily reliant on traffic, and it was also difficult to see how we were going to catch up with the first team off who, by this point, were as far away as Henley on Thames. To monitor the team's progress the runner had to carry a GPS tracker at all times, and use this to generate a code at every checkpoint. After a pretty rubbish dummy run, we were off. The first team stage was an arduous 0.2 mile leg around a field, complicated by Nick Twomey being absolutely terrified of the spectating dog. The first individual leg was then taken on by Jonathan Smith, who ran from Twickenham to Brentford via Twickenham Bridge and the towpath. In fact so familiar was this first leg that he had been threatened with death by several team members if he managed to mess it up. Thankfully he didn't. James Whistler took the baton on Stage 2 to Southall, followed by Rick Jenner and then Rich who got the team to Slough and then Taplow. By this point we had already started to catch and overtake teams ahead of us, although our tracker had already stopped working and put us much further back in the field. With the teams split into two groups to allow everyone to get a couple of hours sleep at various points, Rick, Jonathan and James headed to the halfway team stage to get some rest, whilst Rich handed over to Nick, who along with Mark Herbert, Dave Lawley, Mike Morris, Ross (and Rich again) guided the team through Peppard, Goring and along the Ridgeway. Around 3am the team reached the half-way point, Nick powering into the finish just as dawn started to break. This led straight into the second team stage, which was meant to be a 1.9 mile jaunt around Coate Water Park. It was during this run that the team found itself gaining in confidence as it breezed past rival runners. That confidence was to be misplaced however, as a wrong turn resulted in us veering away from the route and almost hitting the M4 before the error was realised. Nick was furious. But there was no time for recriminations. The mini-bus headed on to let the later runners get some rest. In the meantime Jonathan took the team to Swindon, Rich (now into his third leg) carried on to Royal Wooton Bassett and James pounded into the beautiful town of Malmesbury. And on and on it went. Dave taking on a nine miler to Didmarton, Ross setting an incredible time for a 12.4 miler to Thornbury, and Mark navigating several cows to get us to the Severn estuary. With James having the unusual pleasure of running over the Severn Bridge at around 8am in the morning, the team finally made it into Wales and had the finish line in their sights. By this point they were 4th (helped by one team taking an unfortunate detour towards Chester and with the leading team just 15 minutes down the road). Rick powered past a couple more teams on Stage 19 to Caldicot Castle, and by the time Jonathan hit the Magor finish line on Stage 20 the leaders had seemingly gone off course, putting us into the lead on the road as well as on the timesheets. It was at this point that the Race Director's suggestion that we go for a course record started to come back to bite him. As he struggled to stay ahead of us and set up the new checkpoints, Nick finished Stage 21 in Newport only minutes after he had got there. But there was still time for things to go wrong. Mike successfully navigated a tricky Stage 22 to St Mellons and handed over to Mark who, having taken on the Transylvania 50k only a couple of weeks before, was understandably starting to feel it in the legs. Step forward team captain Rich to accompany him on the Stage to Tremorfa and take on his 4th of the day. The two powered each other on and handed over to Rick to bring the team into Cardiff. With the final individual stage being only 3 miles, it was now a race against time to get to the finish in Sophia Gardens before Rick did. This was duly achieved, only to find that again we had caught the organisers napping, with the inflatable finish line barely erected and the final checkpoint nowhere in sight. Again with minutes to spare both were in place. Rick duly arrived, the team set off on their final 0.2 mile team stage victory lap, and crossed the finish line to the roaring cheers of approximately 4 spectators (thankfully the numbers swelled as more and more teams came in). The result spoke for itself. The team was the fastest on paper in a time of 18 hours 46 minutes, beat the next team by over 2 hours, overtook every other team out on course, and smashed the previous course record by an hour and five minutes. With the sun even briefly coming out, the only thing that remained was to sit down with several well earned beers and watch the other teams arrive, before being presented with the winning shield. Although a night of celebration had been planned, a combination of sleep deprivation, lack of proper food and rehydrating from around 1pm solely through alcohol, meant that everyone was pretty much in bed by 10pm.

In 37 years of the Whole Earth Man v Horse race, only two runners have ever emerged victorious - Huw Lobb in 2004 and Florian Holginger in 2007. This year's entry had about 600 runners (including a relay team from Ranelagh Harriers of Amrut, Deepa & Claire ) competing against 60 horses. Unfortunately, on the race day Deepa was on a work visit to Zambia and Claire also pulled out leaving me with three race numbers and three coupons for the pasta party - arranged for the runners at Neaudd Arms before the race day. I made full use of all the three coupons which apparently meant I had to complete the whole race by myself ! Luckily, the next morning , organisers managed to find another relay team with a missing runner and we formed a new team and completed the 22 miles in a time of 4 hours and 26 minutes. I did the first leg of approx. 8 miles and found the course conditions extremely hilly, muddy and windy. The only small consolation was that by the time I finished, I found a couple of horses behind me (probably tail running horses?) although most of them had already overtaken me in the first mile. Horse Rheidol Petra, ridden by Iola Evans, won the event in two hours and 30 minutes. The first runner, Owen Beilby, finished the course 27 minutes later."

There's no definitive list of all the men who have run a mile in sub-4 minutes, but the figure is believed to have reached 1,500 at least. Would Sir Roger Bannister have been surprised at this? Probably not, but he might have raised an eyebrow at one of the recent additions to the list, Norwegian Jakob Ingebrigtsen. Competing in the mile race in the Prefontaine Classic meeting in Eugene, Oregon, Jakob recorded 3:58.07...at the age of 16!
