 If you are the current holder of one of our trophies, please arrange to
 return it to Alan Hedger as soon as possible. Alan has to get all the
 trophies engraved with the names of the new winners before our prize

 one of our races or leave it in the safe on a Tuesday night for Alan to pick
 up - but please let him know if you are doing this. Contact Alan on 01372

 Ranelagh and full-time running coach - Karen Weir (Run with Karen) - are
 putting on a free evening workshop for club members only on the subject of
 Running Technique and how you can improve your running. 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. karen@runwithkaren.com. This workshop is being supported by Ranelagh
 Harriers so there is no charge to members.  
 Workshop Date: Monday 15th April, 7.30 - 9.30pm in the clubhouse.
 This will be held as usual upstairs at the Roebuck on Richmond Hill on
 Saturday 6th April, starting at 7pm. Price £22 includes welcome glass of
 bubbly, free beer while stocks last and a buffet dinner. If you have a
 trophy to collect, please try to come along. We are limited to 60 places,
 and 40 have already been taken so don't delay! Book with Michele Gibson on
 Tuesday or Wednesday evenings at the clubhouse or by e-mail
 micheleagibson@hotmail.com or phone 07703 518956. Cheques payable
 to Ranelagh Harriers.

 "Do you fancy a fun weekend of running with fellow Ranelagh Harriers? We are
 hoping to put together one or two teams for the Green Belt Relay 2013, a 220
 mile run split between teams of 11 runners. The course is renowned for its
 spectacular scenery and interesting sites. The relay takes place over the
 weekend of May 11 / 12 and we are hoping to provide some transport as well
 as organising an overnight stay at the half way point on Saturday. If you
 are interested in signing up please contact Michelle Davies
 michelle.davies@richmond.gov.uk . For more information take a look
 at the Green Belt web page: www.greenbeltrelay.org.uk/."

 "Just in case you missed the feature in the parkrun newsletter of 28th
 February....the parkrun Poland team are welcoming a group of parkrunners to
 the historic and fascinating Tricity area on the last weekend of April,
 where you will have the opportunity to run one or both of the parkruns. We
 experienced amazing hospitality from the parkrun team there last year, and
 it is a great way to mix with the wider parkrun community both U.K. and
 Polish. The team have also promised to show us some of the attractions. Most
 of the group will be flying out of Stansted on Friday morning and returning
 on Sunday night.
 If you are interested, it is still possible to join us. Call me on 07799
 072307 or email me peter_fordham@yahoo.com  and I can give you full
 details. It should be a great trip!

 "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 ranelagh.men@gmail.com 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!"

 It's still quite close at the top of the table in the McLeod Cup competition
 for points scored in club races throughout the winter season, with only 20
 points covering the top four. Trevor Maguire leads with 932 points from
 Chris Camacho 921, Steve Rowland 920 and Andy Woodhouse 912. The women's
 competition is far more clear cut with Sandra Prosser miles ahead of the
 rest on 982 points from Becky Hall on 698 and Sonia Rowland on 666. Full
 scoreboards are here:.   

 As usual on this complex course we need plenty of marshals and people to man
 the water stations, ride the lead bikes etc. If you can spare only a few
 minutes we can still use you. If you have two or three hours so much the
 better. Please contact ranelaghhalfhelpers@hotmail.co.uk to volunteer. 

 Our annual visit to the Bank of England's course on the other side of the
 Park was originally scheduled for January 19th but was cancelled after heavy
 snowfalls. The Bank have now invited us to a replacement fixture on Saturday
 23rd March starting at 3pm. We are hoping to run a team in the South of
 England Road Relay on the Sunday, but all other members will be welcome at
 the Bank - the HQ is their Sports Ground off Bank Lane a quarter mile or so
 from Roehampton gate. 

 Our unofficial parkrun "mob match" against the Stragglers will be
 incorporated with the Kingston parkrun on Saturday 13th April.

 Our summer GP will consist of the same ten events as last year, starting
 with the Thames Towpath 10 on Sunday 14th April.  Details:.  Any spring marathon will also
 count, between last week's Seville and our Half Marathon on May 5th. Full
 details are on our website here:.  

 GET HIGH!!........................... 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
 peter_fordham@yahoo.com or call 07799 072307. Visit the race website."

 "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: 

 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.

 NATIONAL CROSS-COUNTRY CHAMPIONSHIPS  Saturday 23rd February at Herrington
 Park, Sunderland
 Understandably there was no great enthusiasm for the long trek up to the
 North-East, especially in the snowy conditions.
 Peter Haarer reports:
 "Last time I was last Ranelagh man home in the National was 2007 when the
 race was - perhaps ominously - also at Herrington. Certainly, I should have
 heeded the bad omens: there was the hole worn through the skin of my heel at
 the  Blackheath match (a small wound, but in a very awkward place for
 running); on Thursday I had a fever; and on Friday night driving north there
 was a blizzard and a snow-bound north-east to negotiate on the following
 morning.  As for the race itself, by the Saturday afternoon the snow had
 thinned a little but not disappeared except, that is, for the broad brown
 streak of thick sorbet making up the course.  Unlike the most recent
 National at Alton Towers, the organisers (to their credit) did not baulk at
 sending us round the full seven and a half miles, but it's hard to say
 whether conditions equalled those of that infamous race.  There were no
 sections of true porridge, and the inclines were not as steep, but the
 weather felt far colder, as did the mix of mud and snow under foot. 
 As for this year's winner of the Roffey Salver, some will say that he had it
 easy, but considering the difficulties in even making the start (for once
 not of the time-keeping type) and the gruelling conditions, I beg to differ.
 I will aim to make the scoring six next year (probably a struggle given the
 wealth of upcoming talent), and will hope not to be last man home again.
 P.S. - there are rumours circulating in Oxford that I was teaching this week
 with one sock off and one trouser leg rolled up.  These are entirely true
 (needed to allow the wound on my heel to dry)."

 It should be pointed out that on both occasions mentioned above Peter was
 not only the last Ranelagh man home but also the first. He is rewarded with
 the Roffey Salver for an extraordinary 12th time. 

 Our women's team was twice the size of the men's. Marie Synnott-Wells takes
 the Aotearoa Trophy as the first Ranelagh finisher, with Sandra Prosser

 INTER-CLUB 3.86 miles  Saturday 2nd March in Richmond Park
 It was a mild spring-like day for this little end-of-season sprint, with
 Hercules Wimbledon and Milocarians as our main opposition plus a couple of
 waifs and strays from Kingston & Poly. The course was dry but for a few
 cunningly placed mud holes. There was quite a mix on the starting line - of
 the 48 runners, 9 were aged over 60 and 17 were under 17. Most of the
 Hercules contingent were juniors, including 16 year-old Cassian Hyde who
 placed second. Their team was strong enough to win at both 10 and 5 to
 score. Ranelagh, led by Mark Herbert in third place, were runners-up. 

 Happily, seven of the juniors were wearing Ranelagh vests, the first
 appearance of a Ranelagh junior team for a few years. Junior Coach Colin
 Brett writes:

 "A few nerves were on show at the start, as for all except 12 year-old Livvy
 Ricketts, who had another great run, it was to be a debut run in the blue
 and gold Ranelagh vest. The race brief was a simple one - finish with a
 smile (pictures were being taken) and do your best to finish in front of at
 least one yellow (Hercules) and one navy (Milocarians) vest. All achieved
 their goal with exceptional runs from Polly White ( aged 15) - 1st lady home
 - and Tom Kearey (14) both scoring in the top ten. Jamie West (13) and Kabir
 Sait (8) were not far behind, with Tor Heron-Brett (10) & Josie Kearey (10)
 both mounting fantastic sprint finishes to ensure they passed opposition on
 the home straight. All were smiling with the odd grimace at the end. With 6k
 run on a tough course, all conformed to Andy Bickerstaff's call to arms
 "They were brave"! (with wet feet to prove it!). Back to training at the
 clubhouse on Tuesday at 6pm getting ready for a 2k race series this summer."


 MABAC LEAGUE 5 miles  Sunday 3rd March in Richmond Park
 Bev Ali reports:
 "Sunday was the annual Ranelagh MABAC run in Richmond Park.  We had a total
 of 135 runners completing 5 miles, 12 juniors completing 2.5 miles and 20
 joggers and walkers also completing 2.5 miles.  The fastest 5 mile times for
 the day were Dave Carnie from Runnymede Runners in 29:24 and Samantha
 Pickford from Wimbledon Windmilers in 34:40. First Ranelagh finisher was
 Michelle Davies in 37:16.  The last finisher came in at 61:46.  The fastest
 junior, both clock time (17:34) and handicap time based on age was Ewan Bate
 from DMV.  Currently Wimbledon Windmilers lead the table with 2415 points,
 and Ranelagh stands 9th out of 12 clubs with 518 points.  The weather was
 perfect for running, and we had many smiling faces at the finish, no
 injuries or lost participants, that we know of.  Many thanks to the regular
 runners and families of the regular runners who made it possible -
 especially Oliver for re-marking the course where the 'Friends of Richmond
 Park' had sabotaged us.  This was particularly worrying since we have
 runners varying in age from about 5 years to over 70 years, and it would
 have been a disaster if any had got lost due to the misguided efforts of one
 zealot.   Also thanks especially to Richard, Simon and Joshua Bell for
 organising the registration table in Jenny's absence.  See you at the next

 SEVILLE MARATHON  Sunday 24th February
 Ian Grange reports:
 "Most of the group flew out to Seville from Gatwick Airport on Thursday 20
 February, where we arrived to quite a lot of rain on Thursday and Friday.
 However, for race day on Sunday the weather was fine and the conditions were
 good for some fast times.
 Leading the Ranelagh Harriers group was Paul Sinton-Hewitt with a finishing
 time of 3hrs 27mins 2secs with Karen Weir following close behind with a time
 of 3hrs 29mins 36secs. Others achieved good times including Jane
 Craigie-Payne, myself and Heather Martingell with times of 3hrs 36mins, 3hrs
 37mins and 3hrs 52mins respectively. Ally Salisbury and Hannah Doyle both
 achieved PB's with times of 4hrs 02mins and 4hrs 08mins which were big
 improvements for both.
 Finally I would recommend the course at Seville as it is flat, fast and a
 lot less crowded than some."
