She'll cover the key elements that are essential for good technique, to make you a more efficient runner and reduce injury risk. She'll also dispel some of the myths surrounding the current trend of barefoot running. Places are strictly limited to 15, so please contact Karen as soon as possible to book your place. email@example.com.

Vikki Rowland is the daughter of our former club handicapper Mike Rowland, who so sadly died from cancer just after Christmas. Vikki has managed to obtain a late place in this year's London Marathon with the Cancer Research UK team and is now frantically trying to put in the necessary training! Obviously it's a cause close to her heart and she'd love to raise a good sum in her dad's memory. So, if you ever received a decent handicap from Mike perhaps you'd like to consider sponsoring Vikki. Her Justgiving page is here: BAKER CUP SUPPER and PRIZE PRESENTATION This will be held as usual at the Roebuck on Saturday 6th April, starting at 7pm. Reserve the date, more details to follow. CAPTAINS' 10km CHALLENGE Marc Snaith writes: "To give you an extra incentive to train harder and run some fast times this summer we are going to reward the three runners who shave the most time from their 10k PBs. Don't worry if you set your 10k PB 20 years ago, we'll use your fastest time since 1 March 2011. There are three categories organised according to your fastest time since 1 March 2011. The most improved runner in each of the following three categories will win a £50 voucher. 1. Men sub 40 minutes, women sub 45 minutes. 2. Men 40 minutes - 49.59, women 45 minutes - 54.59. 3. Men 50 minutes plus, women 55 minutes plus. Only times run between 1 March and 30 September 2013 will count. To enter, email firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll take your fastest 10k time shown on the powerof10 or runbritain websites, or reported in the e-news, since 1 March 2011. We'll try to keep tabs on improvers but if you beat your best time it will help if you send another e-mail with your new PB. Happy training!"

ALPINE RUNNING THE ALETSCH HALF MARATHON in the Swiss Alps 27th June - 1st July Peter Fordham writes: "Here's another opportunity to be introduced to mountain running in the best possible way. I am again taking a small group to Bettmeralp, 2000 metres up in the Swiss Alps to run the Aletsch race in spectacular scenery that includes fantastic views of the longest glacier in Europe and views of many 4000 metre peaks. The race is held entirely within one of only two UNESCO World Natural Heritage Sites in the Alps. In the days before the race, we take advantage of the amazing hiking opportunities in the area, and also find time to relax in the traffic free village. The trip price of £630 includes scheduled flights from Heathrow, rail and cable car transfers, race entry and four nights with half board at the excellent three star Hotel Alpfrieden. The only extra costs you will have to incur are for daytime snacks and drinks. If you wish to make your own flight arrangements I can adjust the price. All flights and rail travel arranged by me are booked through the Swiss Travel Centre. If you are interested please contact me as soon as possible, as I still have some rooms held for me for a limited period. Please mail me on email@example.com or call 07799 072307.

THE EFFECT OF COMPRESSION GARMENTS ON MUSCLE RECOVERY FOLLOWING HIGH-INTENSITY SHUTTLE RUNNING Nick Coleman of St Mary's University College writes: "I am a post graduate student at St Mary's in Twickenham where I am currently completing a research project on the effects of compression garments on recovery after exercise. I am looking for some subjects to assist my research - they can be male or female, aged 18 - 40 and exercising 2 - 5 hours a week in predominantly running based activity. The test involves a 90min interval running protocol designed to create fatigue, this would be done on day 1, the participants would then have to come back to St Mary's on day 2 and 3 for follow up measurements which would take 10-15min. Before the actual testing we would have to measure VO2max, this may be attractive to some of your members due to the importance of oxygen uptake in running and I would be happy to share the results." Contact Nick by email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 07970 318700. JUNIOR HANDICAP SERIES Colin Brett writes: "We plan to enter one or two junior teams in this handicap series organised by Stragglers whom I've been speaking with and we will help with marshalling time keeping etc. Here are the details: Course This is just over 2 km on the grass area in front of the Hawker Centre. It consists of four laps of the perimeter of the grass area, which will be marked out. After the end of the fourth lap the runners will cross the finish line and go down the finish funnel in the order in which they crossed the line. New or inexperienced runners, if they find 2 km a bit far, can run one lap - they will be given a time, but their results will not count towards any individual or team scores. First Timers First time runners are given a start time depending on their age. Under 4 start at 0 minutes and run just one lap (500 metres) Age 4-5 also start at 0 mins. Age 6-8 start at 5 mins. Age 9-11 start at 8 mins. Age 12-14 start at 10 mins. Age 15-17 start at 12 mins.

BRIGHTON MARATHON Martin Wolfson forwards the following from Emma Waggott at the Princess Alice Hospice in Esher: "We still have two places left in our Brighton Marathon team which we have to fill by the end of the month. If you know anyone that is looking to run a marathon then Brighton is a great one to do. We ask the runners to raise a minimum of £500 and they will be given a free running vest, fundraising tips and training advice leading up until the race day. For more information about the Brighton Marathon please visit www.brightonmarathon.co.uk/. £500 is not a lot to raise but to the hospice these two spaces mean £1000 which could pay for two days of care on the ward for one of our patients."

WHAT'S HAPPENED *************** 2XU SURREY LEAGUE DIVISION 1 Saturday 9th February at Coulsdon Marc Snaith reports: "About two weeks before each Surrey League race I write out the names of those who could run and estimate how many points the scoring team would score. As the race day approaches, my list of runners gets shorter and the estimated points increases by tens, fifties and quite often hundreds. So it was a very fitting end to my captaincy that my list of names was far inferior to the runners on the declared team sheet and the final points total significantly less than the number scrawled on the piece of paper in my back pocket. We had thirty-two runners out which must be some kind of record on a runner : distance travelled to race ratio. We even had a couple of spectators who under different circumstances would expect to run so that figure could have been higher. Our points total of 380 is our lowest since 2007 and whilst our finishing position in the league was one place lower than last year, the new champions, Kent AC, were also new to the division which basically means we were consistent with last year. Phil Killingley once again led the team finishing just ahead of Chris Illman, making his first Surrey League appearance for a few years, followed by Eirin McDaid, Sam Perkins, Peter Haarer, Carl Selya-Hammer and Jackson Creegan who all made the top fifty. There was a brief interlude and then another flurry of blue vests to complete the scoring team. Eighth was Richard Gregory, who was testing his legs as part of his return from a lengthy injury, just ahead of captain Marc Snaith, making his final Surrey League appearance as captain and Darryl McDonald, with Steve Whitehead just a few seconds behind Darryl just outside the scoring ten. There used to be a time when everyone who ran could easily get name checked in the race report, but such is the health of the club, those days seem long behind us. In fact I often find that I only know who ran once the final results are out. Well done to all who ran, the team spirit is really infectious at the moment and our impressive turnouts in this year's Surrey League are a testament to all of you. Final mention goes to our President, Steve Rowland, who retained his V60 trophy. Well done Steve!" Phil Killingley adds: "A fitting exit for Captain Marvel and a great display of the power of the Blue and Gold! It won't surprise you all to learn that we easily carried the gold medal for total number of runners participating. Having moved into the lead at the Ham Lands, only home team SLH came anywhere near us in the participation stakes at Coulsdon, although we still out-peopled them by 5 runners. The final table is below. I counted 32 runners at Coulsdon - even more than at Ham Lands. A superb result and one which we'll aim to carry into next season." 1 2 3 4 TOTAL Ranelagh 17 27 31 32 107 SLH 19 22 18 27 86 Herne Hill 19 27 22 15 83 Stragglers 17 29 21 11 78 Herc Wimb 21 21 21 13 76 Thames 18 20 18 14 70 Kent 17 17 21 15 70 Reigate 14 16 18 14 62 Belgrave 10 12 9 11 42 Stragglers and Reigate Priory move down to Division 2, to be replaced in the top flight by Clapham Chasers and Walton. Stragglers fielded only 11 runners today, so our B team contest with them ended in a whitewash. Sonia Rowland's Photos. SURREY LADIES LEAGUE DIVISION 1 Saturday 9th February at Denbies Vineyard, Dorking A new course had been laid out at Denbies, but still very scenic, winding amongst the grape vines with views across to Box Hill, and testing the runners with long deceptive climbs and equally long descents. To judge from the times it was well in excess of the advertised five miles. Our chances of avoiding relegation to Division 2 were slim and though we finished 11th A team on the day we could not lift ourselves out of 13th overall - and with the bottom three of the fifteen Division 1 clubs to face the drop our fate was sealed. In the women's league this makes little practical difference as both divisions run together, but nevertheless we can concentrate on a good team performance next year to reclaim our Division 1 spot. Becky Hall and Marie Synnott-Wells both rallied well to the cause with their highest League placings of the year. Wiebke Kortum, Kate Brook and Katherine Mercer completed the scoring five - Katherine making the team for the first time - and Heather Martingell backed up close behind. Livvy Ricketts again ran well for us in the Under 13s race. Steve Rowland's Photos. PELLING-RATCLIFF CUP MOB MATCH v BLACKHEATH and BROMLEY HAC Saturday 16th February at Hayes, Kent We won! Stats first: although honours have been fairly evenly divided in recent years, and there have been one or two very close contests at Hayes, our last away win against the heathens was in January 1971. And before that? March 1922! Between 1926 and 1966 we didn't register a single success, home or away. So we can be excused for giving ourselves a generous pat on the back for pulling off a narrow victory and retaining the handsome Pelling-Ratcliff Cup. It's true that Blackheath sent a men's team to the rescheduled South of England championships whereas in the end we didn't. But they fielded only the bare six to make up a team at Parliament Hill and it's debatable whether any of them would otherwise have supported the mob match. Our turnout was not numerically outstanding - with 31 starters we were actually one fewer than at the men's League race last week. But we had some strength - five of the scoring team of ten from last week were in action again plus four more who had made our 'B' team. The pattern of the race was easily discernible during the initial circuit of the grassy slopes which serves to spread out the field before the first of many stiles heralds the start of the serious business. Four blue vests were leading the way to the stile, headed by last year's winner Chris Illman. Five more blue vests featured in the top eleven. Clearly we were going to get a head start in the scoring, but equally clearly Blackheath - who outnumbered us by four - were packing strongly in mid-field. Positions at the sharp end didn't change much for the rest of the course, which is rugged and varied country with gates and stiles to contend with as well as plenty of hills. There was mud too, though not as much as might have been feared and most of what there was, was soft and runnable rather than wet and sticky. Phil Killingley made Chris work for his win but there was no doubt in the end as Chris crossed the line over half a minute clear. Eirin McDaid and Peter Haarer had isolated runs before finishing 3rd and 4th. The leading two heathens came next, followed closely by Marc Snaith and Mark Herbert and then a minute back Ted Mockett, Trevor Maguire and John Shaw. A pack of four black vests crossed the line next, the start of the heathen fight back. We held off the onslaught somewhat thanks to Chris Owens, Matthew Copp, William Griffin and David Powell who secured us thirteen home in the top twenty. But of the next twenty, fourteen were from Blackheath, and that pattern continued. Their 28th and last scorer finished 54th, while ours - Mr President - was 64th. It did not seem possible that we could lose after such a strong presence at the head of the field, but we couldn't rest easy until the result was finally announced. To much acclaim in the Ranelagh camp it was a win for us by 761 points to 845. Chris Illman's fine run meant that he got to keep the F B Thompson medal for the individual winner. John Shaw had been the holder of the Harry Sheer Trophy for the first over 50 to finish, but he was obliged to relinquish it this time to heathens' Nick Kinsey who finished 6th overall in 53.17. The leading woman was Blackheath's Francesca Green, 13th in 56.23 while our first finisher was Wiebke Kortum in 41st place. A special word for David Wright who doubted he would maintain his mob match record after sustaining an Achilles injury at the last mob match but hobbled around in good style to complete mob match number 152. Clive Naish completed number 119, the last 117 since 1983 consecutive, and fellow centurions Steve Rowland and Mike Peace also added to their tallies. There are plenty of photographs on the Blackheath website, courtesy of Mike Peel. Photos:. SOUTH OF ENGLAND CROSS-COUNTRY CHAMPIONSHIPS Saturday 16th February at Parliament Hill After a snow scare caused the "Southern" to be postponed in January, the re-scheduled date clashed with the Blackheath mob match. This was a pity as we had a record forty or so entered in the senior men's and women's races at the Southern. There was talk at first of running a small but strong team at Parliament Hill and encouraging the rest to try the delights of Hayes, but in the end, the men abandoned the Southern altogether, a decision fully vindicated by our historic victory over Blackheath! We maintained a token presence in the women's events but did not complete a team. Estelle Damant made the top fifty with Heather Martingell and Kirsty Bangham following her home, while Livvy Ricketts represented us in the Under 13s race. 1 L Partridge (AFD) 28.57 2 S Twell (AFD) 29.01 3 E Pidgeon (AFD) 29.02 45 Estelle Damant 34.20 199 Heather Martingell 45.49 206 Kirsty Bangham 47.12 Under 13s 1 H Page (Dartford) 11.11 184 Livvy Ricketts 14.49 MABAC LEAGUE 5 miles Sunday 3rd February at Ewell 1 D Cairnie (Runnymede) 33.14 70 James Barber 46.35 80 Oliver Bheemul 48.33 112 Lynne Barber 55.47 122 Christine David 64.11 123 Stacey Barber 64.20 XNRG PILGRIMS WAY 66 MILES ULTRA Saturday 2nd / Sunday 3rd February on the North Downs Colin Brett reports: "Boy, this one made me question my sanity! Each day consisted of 33 miles (34.5 miles on Saturday with my navigational skills coming to the fore). Yes there were hills including the charming Box Hill, there was biting wind, 2,400 feet of total ascent and descent plus in my infinite wisdom I thought I'd carry a 6kg pack for fun, it would be good training for the upcoming Marathon des Sables. But none of my previous training quite prepared me for the mud, lots of it, slippery mud, sticky mud, deep mud, clay mud (that's a special treat). I finished day one resembling more a wallowing hippopotamus than an Ultra runner, shattered! I guess everyone else found it tough, as my time of 5hrs 38mins meant I beat the cut off 5hrs 45 for the Elite start on day 2 and held 30th spot (approx 200 started day 1). Being on the elite start was my highlight of day two. Elites (and me!) in Ultras start at the back, some two hours after the main field, Realising I was the oldest, fattest and probably most knackered bloke on the start line wasn't filling me with confidence. It turned out I ran a large part of the day on my own into a biting wind with heavy shoes caked in the North Downs mud. It was hard but I guess that's the point, I finished day two in 6hrs 50mins ouch! But happy that I still maintained 39th spot. I met some truly inspirational people, I ran for a few miles with Jen Bradley who was first British women to complete the Trans American trail run 3,200 miles in 80 days (she's fit!); Andy Mouncy, who gave a talk on Saturday evening and held the Arch to Arch record until recently, also manned Check Point 2; Robbie Britton who has just qualified for team GB 24hrs team. All made my 100 miles week training for the MDS seem relatively normal as mid-life crises go!" 1 D Kendall (Serp) 8:49.21 (course record) (day 1 4:01.54, day 2 4:47.27) 39 Colin Brett 12:28.42 (5:38.25, 6:50.17) SOUTHERN COUNTIES VETERANS AC INDOOR TRACK & FIELD CHAMPIONSHIPS Sunday 17th February at Lee Valley Alan Davidson reports: "The Southern Counties Vets Indoor Track & Field Championships at Lee Valley in Essex was going to be only the third time I had run indoors and regrettably unlike the people able to boost their fitness using the London area indoors facilities I came to these championships due to winter weather not even able to sharpen up on outdoor tracks, thus lacking any sort of speed and carrying too much winter fat! The event has qualifying standards for winning medals which if not met means that a medal is not awarded. Just the same the very small number of entries was surprising and in fact the 800m for all women aged 35 upwards had an entry of nil! I knew it was going to be a struggle for me in my lacking in fitness condition and the 3000m and 1500m had such small numbers that men and women in all age groups ran together in one straight final race. The make-up of the 3000 (15 laps) was one woman, two younger men and five in my M65 age group. It was embarrassing to trail round last but the one consolation was although out of the medals I did at least hit the qualifying standard time (14.01) with my 13.22. It was cool in the indoor arena but I built up quite a sweat possibly due more to heaving my winter fat round the track than generating any speed! In the 1500 metres I took up my customary position but the tiny field had only two SCVAC M65s running, so my battle was to try and hit the 6.41 medal qualifying time to be able to collect the silver and a desperate effort got me round in 6.21.1. Feeling like a very old man all that was left then was three and a half hours of buses, trains and walking to stagger home!" DUSI CANOE MARATHON Thursday 14th - Saturday 16th February Pietermaritzburg - Durban, South Africa Lloyd Camp reports: "It's not a road race but I just completed my 10th Dusi Canoe Marathon: 125 km over 3 days."
