PHOTOGRAPHER Richmond Half Marathon Race Director Sandra Forrest writes: Weve lost our photographer for this years race. It seems a shame not to have one, but they said that the race hasnt been profitable for them. We dont pay the photographer anything, or even organise their attendance they usually just turn up and then put a link to the gallery on the website each year so that people can purchase their event photos if they would like to. If anyone would like to give this a shot, there is an opening for this service. Contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested. This isnt a vital service so if no-one is interested we will do without.

ONE WILLOW THERAPEUTICS Zoe writes: Deep tissue massage for athletes can both enhance performance and reduce the risk of injury, as runners we have all had muscle fatigue, inflammation and some ligament issues. One Willow Therapeutics is an established deep tissue massage specialist which can work with each athlete to address injuries or specific concerns; this is often best set to gain optimal result working within their training programme. One of our members, Zoe as part of One Willow Therapeutics is offering a discount to all Ranelagh members. This might be great in helping any current injury, or simply preparing for or recovering from an important race! For a pre-race treatment it is advisable that it is taken at least week or before the event, as deep tissue work can cause the body to change in a rebalance, or readjustment which needs to be accounted for.

Shackleton reports: The Clutton Cup favoured the bold: arctic temperatures, driving snow and slippery conditions all had to be negotiated just to get to Petersham, besides the vast drifts of rugby-goers heading for the international match at Twickenham. Sixteen hardy souls gathered for the start. As we set off one after another into the wild, we were met almost immediately by the shock of an icy wind at full blast which sought out the marrow of our bones. Queen's Ride offered some shelter but there was no real let-up until we had reached the lee of Spankers Hill. The park was pleasantly empty and we encountered fewer people than we did deer, the latter looking on disdainfully as we skirted the herd (especially the stag with his air of "None shall pass"). As we approached Pen Ponds an unmissable sign pointed the way to the start of a series of red flags laid down carefully by an intrepid Andy Bickerstaff which marked out the second half of the lap very effectively. This section of the course covers parts of the park rarely trod by Ranelagh (or indeed anyone else on this particular day) and if perhaps the most bleak in appearance, it was the most scenic with acres of snow-covered wilderness stretching ahead. We were soon at and through a section called Pond Slade which was a little damp and boggy in places, and then climbing back up round Sidmouth Wood to the start. If the first lap was the epitome of the loneliness of the long-distance runner (I saw no one) then the second was more lively as the faster runners began to close in on those who had set off earlier. Janet Turnes was first to the tape and won the handicap and the Cup. She was followed in by James Riley who produced an excellent run and was unlucky to miss out on fastest man for the day by just two seconds (that went to Peter Haarer who had the advantage of Marcus Atkins to chase down in a close sprint finish). Mark Herbert was neatly third finisher and third in speed order, while Fanny Vein was our fastest woman, followed by Rebecca Northmore and Ann Kearey. The real heroes of the day were the marshals: Andy Bickerstaff, Ken Powley, Alan Hedger and others who nobly started everyone at the correct time and then endured the bitter weather until the last runner came home. Back at the clubhouse the post-race tea prepared by Carol Barnshaw and Clive Naish has rarely been more welcome. In spite of the elements I enjoyed the Clutton Cup and my only regret is that it has taken me more than thirty years to give it a go.

Submitted anonymously to the Ranelagh Harriers Gazette October 1922: Tis honour of club that spurs us on When weary and fit to drop. Tis only a slacker that turns it in, And none who can stand will stop. Tis a glorious feeling when racings oer, No matter which man has won, To feel that youve run for your club throughout And your race was a race well run.
