There are almost 50 Ranelagh Harriers in the entry list so far, and there is still time to join them. Details are here:. LONDON MARATHON Sunday 22nd April Good luck to all Spring Marathoners, whether London or elsewhere. On the Sunday evening of the London, all are welcome at Janet Turnes's pub, the Wych Elm in Elm Road, Kingston - runners, supporters, telly watchers, everyone. If you have a marathon medal, bring it! ROAD GRAND PRIX The full list of Grand Prix events is on our website here:. Any Spring Marathon will count, so make sure you let us know your results. The Richmond Half Marathon is the third event, followed by the Sutton 10km on Sunday 13th May. Details:. POST-MARATHON MASSAGE Sharon Dooley writes: "I've been studying ITEC level 4 Sports Massage at St Mary's College since October. I'm building up hours of practise towards my qualification and as such wondered how many of you would be interested in a massage the day after the VLM. It will be free. Amongst other benefits, massage helps the recovery process by Increasing blood flow to the area, gently stretching the tissues and helping to drain toxins, thus reducing stiffness. If there is enough interest (and you don't have to run the marathon in order to come along) I and another student or two will be at the clubhouse on Monday 23rd April. Please email me if you are interested so I can gauge numbers and whether there's enough interest: S_d@talktalk.net." MARATHON SPONSORSHIP Andrew Brown writes: "Further to speedy Ranelagh Harriers Martin Wolfson (newsletter #367 Princess Alice Hospice), Hannah Doyle (#372 Great Ormond Street) and Mike Rowland (#373 Water Aid), me and my neuromas will plod round our Diamond Jubilee first London marathon on 22 April! I'm seeking sponsorship for Cardiac Risk in the Young - another great cause (Bill Neely patron: I guess he'll also be running, ITN and ankle permitting), sadly in the news with Fabrice Muamba. Grateful for anything to help raise awareness, research and support families of victims uk.virginmoneygiving.com/AndrewKewBrown." CHRIS BRASHER - THE MAN WHO MADE THE LONDON MARATHON John Bryant's new biography of Chris Brasher is being published this month. It's a good read and Ranelagh naturally gets plenty of mentions. Members can order the book at the special price of £15 (rrp.£20) with free UK P&P by calling 01903 828503 quoting ref AUR 327. Also see SWLAN NEWS below. RICHMOND 10km Sunday 24th June Race Director Niall O'Connor writes: "While Mo Farah is focused on a minor 10k in late August, the only 10k that really matters this summer takes place on Sunday June 24th at Ham. Entries for the race are here: It will be the same course as 2010 and 2011 - flat, fast and scenic. £10 for club runners and £12 for all others - great value for a race with chipped timing. As a running club, priority has to be to run the race but if you're available to volunteer to marshal I'll gratefully accept all offers at 10k-enquiries@ranelagh-harriers.com. As well as being the county 10k championship the race also serves as the club championship. More details to follow over next few weeks." CONGRATULATIONS... ...to Marie Synnott-Wells, who was most deservedly included at number 33 in Athletics Weekly's list of the "Top Fifty Great Club Servants". BED AND BREAKFAST (and a race?) AT THORNTHWAITE GRANGE As many of you will know, our former President Clive Beauvais and Sue Ashley are now running a B&B just outside Keswick in the Lake District. Take a look at their website here: www.thornthwaite-grange.co.uk/. Clive writes: "We can offer 10% OFF the final bill for Ranelagh members and their accompanying friends and relatives. If any members fancy fell racing they can go to the Fell Runners Association web site - www.fellrunner.org.uk/ - which lists every fell race, of which there are dozens in the Lake District, all within reasonable striking distance of our place. For those who prefer road or trail races, there are plenty of those too. Here's a selection: 21st April - St.George's Day 10km at Great Langdale. 22nd April - Would you believe, the organisers of the April 21st race do exactly the same the following day? 25th April - Keswick AC Round the Houses 5.3 miles road race. 9th May - Lord's Seat Fell Race. I have included this because it's a 'soft' fell race, more of a tough cross-country. 20th May - Borrowdale Trail Race 11km or 20km - a big event with pre-entry essential. It's part of the Keswick Mountain Festival. Visit www.keswickmountainfestival.co.uk. 20th June - Hawkshead 10km. 30th June - Cockermouth 5km. 1st July - Skiddaw fell race. 14.5km - not for the faint hearted. 3rd August - Ellenborough 10km. I did this last year. It's well organised and I would recommend it. 10th August - Ulverston 10km - OK race but 90 minutes drive from us. 17th August - Newlands Valley 6.8 miles. Nice race, no prizes. 22nd August - Keswick AC Round Lattrigg 8.8kms - tough cross-country. This is just a few of the local events around here in the summer. We hope to see some of you!"

WHAT'S HAPPENED *************** MINI MOB MATCH 5km at the Richmond parkrun Saturday 24th March Our mini-mob match with the Stragglers attracted a good turnout on both sides. We had 55 starters, Stragglers had 59 and the scoring was set at 52 a side. It was quite closely contested - Strags' James Flood was well away at the front but we provided second and third in Peter Haarer and Sean Paynter while fourth place went to the leading woman Jess Petersson of the Stragglers. We had only two more in the top ten - Chris Bundhun and Duncan Mallison - but then we provided six of the following ten. The to and fro continued and there was little to tell between the two sides all the way down the list, but Stragglers just had the edge. The final result was a victory for them by 2513 points to 2956. BAKER CUP 3 miles road handicap Saturday 31st March in Richmond Park There was a relatively small turn-out of a little over 40 for the Baker Cup - perhaps not too surprising with so many half marathons and other pre-Marathon events at this time of year. Two guests - young Euan Sinclair and Cathy Jones - were well away from the rest, but amongst those eligible for the trophy it must have been one of the closest finishes on record. There was a bit of a hiccup earlier on - the marshal turning the runners at the Pen Ponds car park end of the course hadn't been there before and positioned himself well past the correct turning point. After some quick thinking by Ken and the other officials, the turning point for the second lap was brought back to cancel out the error and the overall distance was the requisite three miles. Early starters Deborah Blakemore and Corinne Bishop held the lead most of the way and it was only well into the last loop that Tom Reay - followed by Alastair Sinclair - fought his way past them. Tom crossed the line seven seconds clear of Alastair, who caught Corinne right on the line. Deborah was just a second behind then within another nine seconds came Livvy Ricketts, Rodney Oliver, Kirsty Bangham, Linda Honey and Ben Shore. Tom was delighted to win his first ever club trophy. The Jack Ellicock Trophy for the first under 18 to finish in the handicap went to Livvy Ricketts. Fastest time of the day was Peter Haarer's 16.14, ahead of Chris Bundhun's 17.17 and Mark Herbert's 17.42. Marie Synnott-Wells led the women with 19.04, followed by Wiebke Kortum on 21.04 and Kate Woodhouse on 21.27. BAKER CUP SUPPER and PRIZE PRESENTATIONS Saturday 31st March at the Roebuck, Richmond Hill Thanks again to Michele Gibson and Andy Hayward for organising the evening's festivities and to Alan Hedger for producing a splendid array of polished and engraved trophies. Alan and the President distributed as many as they could - though it's always a shame that not all prize winners put in an appearance to collect their hard-won trophies. Results of the season-long competitions were: Points Prize (consistency in handicaps) 1st Wiebke Kortum 16, 2nd Simon Burrell 14, 3rd Annemarie Goodridge 12 McLeod Cup (points scored in all club cross-country races - men) 1st Trevor Maguire 1428 2nd Chris Camacho 1270 3rd Chris Bundhun 1252 Performance Award (points scored in all club cross-country races - women) 1st Kate Woodhouse 1575 2nd Sandra Prosser 1340 3rd Marie Synnott-Wells 893 Go to the Ranelagh Statistics section of our website for full scoreboards. SELF TRANSCENDENCE 10 miles Saturday 3rd March in Battersea Park 1 J Cherriman 52.58 74 Kate Comisso 73.55 FINCHLEY 20 miles incl SPENDLOVE CUP CLUB 20 CHAMPIONSHIP Sunday 11th March at Ruislip Bev Ali reports: "Signing up for the Finchley 20 was an act of either extreme bravery or foolishness on my part. I have a history of reacting badly to being asked to run more than one lap in a race...I have stopped after one lap in many (shorter) races. In case you didn't know, Finchley is not a two lap or a three lap race, but a FOUR lap 20 mile race! Surprisingly, though, that made it easier to handle. Psychologically, I only had to run five miles at a time, and by the time we reached the halfway point, it seemed like lap three was a good idea, and then, having done three, it felt like it would have been silly not to do the last one! It was well organised and marshalled by encouraging and entertaining folk, and the route is easy to follow and has nice downhill runs that make up for the rising stretches that aren't really hills. The only caveat I would make is that the first part of each lap is on a single carriageway, 40 mph, no pavement, so a brightly coloured top would be advisable if you are at all speed challenged. The cut off time was advertised as 4 hours, but there were several runners, myself included, who went over the cut off but were still given times, medals and support for the last half of the fourth lap. It was a little disconcerting to find that all the marshals and the water stop had been withdrawn from the first half of the last lap at three hours, but the marshal on bicycle who was sweeping did find us a bottle of water after I expressed my dismay :-) All in all, if you must do a 20 mile race, I would highly recommend this one." Results were in the last e-news.

I'd like to use the heat and running the mini-mob match the previous day (my race strategy of being very sensible lasted about a minute when I realised I could pass a dozen yellow vests at once) as excuses but I can't really - the conditions appeared to be no problem for Stragglers parkrun and mob-match winner James Flood, who came 11th overall. Back down in the quadruple digits, despite the heat and a few more uphills than I remember, the race was a very enjoyable couple of laps of Fleet and into the countryside and pretty Hampshire villages. With my fading from mile 9, a harder than expected struggle to beat two hours on the chip was just won. Other struggles encountered were with British Summer Time (one hour less in bed) and a hardy Peppa Pig who constantly threatened (but just failed) to overtake my wife!" 1 B Livesey (RAF) 1:06.21 (chip time 1:06.20) 1426 Rob Kitchen 2:01.38 (1:59.33) 1743 Philippa Kitchen 2:10.49 (2:08.45) 2112 Danny Hobbs 2:28.02 (2:26.43) MABAC CRANLEIGH 15/21 miles Sunday 25th March Runners can decide on the day which distance they run, so the big test - if your intention was to cover 21 miles - is to resist calling it a day when you pass the finish at 15! Paul Sinton-Hewitt had no intention of going further than 15 and ran well to finish 5th, second over 50. First Ranelagh finisher in the 21 was Bruce McLaren. 15 miles 1 R Kowenicki (TH&H) 1:29.08 5 Paul Sinton-Hewitt 1:41.44 29 Chris Spink 1:57.39 64 Jo Sinton-Hewitt 2:10.37 21 miles 1 P Wright (Tadworth) 2:04.40 90 Bruce McLaren 2:43.13 127 David Rowe 2:45.28 258 Wiebke Kortum 2:59.09 423 Heather Martingell 3:19.19 461 Ally Salisbury 3:23.53 494 Hannah Doyle 3:30.08 568 Sharon Rowe 3:58.15 RAVENS QUARTERLY 5km Thursday 29th March at Wapping 1 J Fairs (Ravens) 16.49 19 Chris Read 21.04 26 Andy Bickerstaff 22.42 27 Andy Hayward 23.22 29 Alan Davidson 23.36 LAST FRIDAY OF THE MONTH 5km Friday 30th March in Hyde Park 1 O Edwards (Shaft B) 15.44 27 Mick Lane 18.22 151 Alan Davidson 23.02 190 Mike Rowland 26.44 NATIONAL LOTTERY OLYMPIC PARK RUN 5 miles Saturday 31st March at Stratford There were apparently some 80,000 applications for the 5,000 places, so all names went into a lottery - sounds familiar? I'm not sure how many Ranelagh made the cut - probably more than the three shown below. Initial impressions weren't great - emerging from the jam-packed shopping centre we were directed across a footbridge just so that we could join a queue to come back again. Then came more queues for security checks. It took about 45 minutes to gain entry to the Olympic Park itself - not too bad, I suppose, when compared to average airport scrums. The stadia looked splendid and ready for action but the surroundings still gave the impression of a building site. Still, they have nearly four months to pretty it up a bit. 1 T Davies 25.11 942 Steve Rowland 37.19 1999 Michele Gibson 41.35 2221 Andrew Brown 42.26 READING HALF MARATHON Sunday 1st April A missing marshal led to six of the pack chasing the leaders running off course - it can happen in the best of events! Trevor Maguire was unaffected and finished 4th over 45. "A good run," says Trevor, "But as ever was hoping for quicker". Behind him Sara Grosvenor made a rare racing appearance just outside 90 minutes. 1 E Kipyego (Kenya) 1:03.08 (chip time 1:03.08) 122 Trevor Maguire 1:17.58 (1:17.54) 657 Sara Grosvenor 1:30.23 (1:30.03) 1269 Liam Griffin 1:37.03 (1:36.55) 2267 Stephen Logue 1:44.20 (1:41.25) 4421 Sue Camp 1:57.05 (1:53.22) 5229 Lindsey Simmonds 2:01.46 (1:55.24) KINGSTON BREAKFAST RUNS Sunday 1st April The courses were marginally shorter than usual owing to road works.
