 WHAT'S HAPPENED
 ***************
 RANELAGH RICHMOND HALF MARATHON  Sunday 5th May
 First of all, a big thank you to race director Sandra Forrest on another
 brilliantly organised event. This is not an easy race to manage, with high
 numbers of marshals and other support volunteers needed. It's a great
 tribute to Sandra's team that we are able to pull off such a successful
 event while still counting more than forty members in the race itself.

 Sandra writes:
 "I would just like to add my massive appreciation for everything you all did
 to make the race a huge success on Sunday; the feedback I heard across the
 board was, in no particular order, fantastic marshals, amazing lead and tail
 bikes, friendly race (again, down to the marshals), and superb organisation
 which is down to Philippa (permissions, St. John Ambulance, loos, Rose of
 York, Man with Van and luggage), Tamsin (every single thing to do with
 volunteers), Sally (prizes, chocolate, bananas, supervising student
 volunteers at finish, and helping to sort out medals), Andy Woodhouse
 (ordering the Medals and the very big job of water), Mike and Michelle (the
 very big job of water), Chris Read and Mark Herbert (massive job of getting
 signs up and back down) and Niall (arranging our use of Kew FC clubhouse and
 organising the vouchers we use as prizes). Without all of you this race
 would not be nearly the success it's been - I am very grateful."

 The race again proved very popular with the entry limit reached months in
 advance of the race. Perhaps this accounts for the large number of
 'no-shows' - only 675 finished from an entry of over 1100.
 
 It was doubly pleasing that we were also able to provide the race winner.
 Phil Killingley was content to sit behind early leader Darren McNeely until
 they had ten miles under their belts. Phil then pressed on strongly and
 built up a comfortable cushion of over half a minute at the finish. This
 brings Phil the county Half Marathon championship. McNeely held on for
 second place ahead of Guildford's Tom Griffiths. Trevor Maguire was our next
 man home just outside 80 minutes, then came a tussle between Paul Doyle,
 Peter Faull and Ted Mockett. Ted proved the stronger at the end, passing
 Peter in the finishing straight. Both set PBs. Paul followed on a few
 seconds back, then came another PB runner, David Rowe. Here's an extract
 from David's blog http://rowerunning.co.uk/:

 "So, a few days ago I was reminded by Sharon that I had entered the Richmond
 Half Marathon this weekend! I'd completely forgotten. When I entered I
 thought it would be a nice way to get a longish run in just as I start to
 ease back the training in advance of my main spring race, an Ironman. Two
 weeks after the London Marathon would be fine as I hadn't planned to run
 London hard. The day before at Bushy parkrun I nipped under 19 minutes on
 very tired legs (from a previous week of fairly large cycling volume) so an
 easy Saturday would surely give a bit of recovery in advance of a bit of a
 smackdown at this half marathon.

 Sunday morning. The weather was perfect. Plenty of friends and fellow club
 runners were taking part (or marshaling) so there wouldn't be a lack of
 support on the course. After a short warm-up I got myself in position right
 by the front of the start area. This is partly because the race is 'gun'
 timed (meaning everyone gets a time based on the start, not when they
 personally crossed the start line - so getting near the front was necessary
 and also helps avoid too much early congestion).

 And then we were off. The early miles were solid and relatively comfortable.
 Heading from Hampton Court along the towpath at about 6.5 miles I found
 myself with a group of maybe five people. Before long two of them had
 drifted off of the back and it was myself, a Collingwood AC and a Tadworth
 AC runner in a small group. We kept each other going and ran pretty well
 together. No-one wanted to drop off the group so we all ran hard and stuck
 together. The pacing was steady, the effort was hard. Just before 10 miles I
 took a gel. I'd had nothing else during the run (apart from a gel 20 minutes
 before the start) and no water. In fact I didn't use the water stations once
 during the race. I didn't feel particularly thirsty (I was well hydrated
 beforehand) and just wanted to concentrate on running!

 At about 10.5 miles it was just the Collingwood runner and myself. We worked
 well together. We sped up from averaging around 6:25 minute miling to around
 6:15 miling. From miles 12 to 13 alongside Riverside Drive we caught up with
 Sean Paynter from Ranelagh who was struggling. I told him to jump on the
 back of us and he tried his best to. Shortly after he dropped back and I
 couldn't hang on any more. Miles 12-13 was (according to my GPS) run at 6:04
 minute miling pace. I had no idea of the time at this point (I'd stopped
 doing the maths in my head a few miles back) and it was just a case of
 having to dig deep all the way to the finish.

 There's a slight double-back just before the finish and I turned into the
 finishing straight (the only bit of grass you run on) and crossed the line
 in 1 hour 23 minutes and 46 seconds. A personal best of 3 minutes 55
 seconds. I'll take that."

 In fairly kind conditions - perhaps a little warm - there were PBs all down
 the field. We had five more finishers inside 90 minutes - Ian Kenton,
 William Griffin, a limping Bill Neely, Lars Lundqvist and Stewart Anderson.
 First woman home was West 4's Isobel Rea, while first from Ranelagh was
 Sally Dell at 97 minutes. Rachael Holmes and Wiebke Kortum also beat 100
 minutes.

 In the open team race our men finished third and our women fourth but in the
 county championship both teams moved up one place.


 SUTTON 10km  Sunday 12th May
 There was a new course for the Sutton 10km this year, in and around Nonsuch
 Park. There was a late scramble for places as the entries were closing, and
 in the end we had some twenty starters, though with only Heather Martingell
 flying the flag for the Ranelagh women.

 Steve Whitehead was our first finisher, just missing not only the 36 minutes
 barrier but also the first over 40 prize. Ted Mockett was next, with some
 clear air between him and Peter Faull this time, though Peter set a PB for
 the second week in a row. Lars Lundqvist also broke new ground, inside 40
 minutes for the first time.

 This was the fourth race in our road Grand Prix. See here: for scores so far and upcoming
 events.


 STRAGGLERS JUNIOR HANDICAPS  Thursday 25th April at Ham
 Colin Brett reports:
 "It was great to turn up on an almost summer evening at the Hawker Centre
 with a squad of ten Ranelagh juniors all of whom acquitted themselves and
 Ranelagh Harriers admirably. As this was everybody's first race in the
 series we could only score 4 points each as we set our handicaps but this
 didn't detract from the joy of seeing a blue vest cross the line first -
 worn by Kabir Sait - closely followed by a steady stream of blue and gold
 vests. There were notable debut runs for Noah Heron-Brett & Patrick
 O'Sullivan who were only 7 and 8 seconds behind respectively. Solid runs for
 Tor Heron-Brett and Josie Kearey who competed for the fastest sprint
 finishes of the evening. Tom Kearey took it a bit easier on the night still
 recovering after a brilliant run in the London mini marathon representing
 his borough on the Sunday. Afrah Sait proved running is in the genes coming
 home second in the Minis 500M & Daniel O'Sullivan will be keeping us all on
 our toes in a few years time competing over the 2k course. Jonny & Charlie
 Brook had great runs too completing the Ranelagh squad. Next event is
 Thursday 30th May."

 RICHMOND PARK MARATHON  Sunday 5th May
 This race, mostly on the Tamsin Trail path round the Park, attracted over
 200 competitors. The race website suggests the course might have been
 slightly over-distance. Ian Grange reports:
 "Three of us completed the race last Sunday. Peter Weir was the first with a
 time of 3hrs 37mins 36secs. I was the next with 3hrs 58mins 6secs and David
 Munt was 4hrs 5mins 42secs. Unfortunately Karen Weir had to pull out at the
 half way mark due to injury. Overall I enjoyed the race although it is quite
 hilly and the day was also quite warm."

 MAJORCA HALF MARATHON (and warm-up)  Saturday 11th May
 Simon Burrell reports:
 "In an attempt to find ever more interesting running races, I recently
 competed in the Majorca 70.3, which is a half marathon preceded by some swim
 and bike warm-up.

 We started by running off the beautiful Alcudia beach into the clear, warm
 Mediterranean sea - out for the best part of 1,000m and then turned and back
 to the shore.  It was a long wade through shallow waters and then a long
 barefoot jog to collect the bike.  The bike course was lovely, although it
 did feature a 9 km hill about a third of the way through and some other
 lumpy bits.  56 miles and nearly 3 hours later I was back dropping off the
 bike and ready for the main event.

 The run course was a three lapper, with a back street section, a run
 alongside the beach and then a long out and back (and back a bit more),
 before returning to the back streets and beach.  It was pancake flat and the
 course was well supported along the initial beach section, so spirits were
 high and I set out at sub-7 minute mile pace, calculating that a 1:31 or
 1:32 might be on the cards.  Sadly, a couple of things then happened.
 Firstly I realised that it gets a bit toasty in the early afternoon in
 Majorca and secondly I found that my warm-up might have been a bit
 exuberant.  So, I dug in and slowed the pace a little, taking the time to
 walk past each of the six aid stations and douse my head with cold water.

 Strangely the aid stations were giving out Coca Cola as well as water - this
 was a first for me, but a very welcome mix of caffeine, sugar, taste and
 bubbles.  I soldiered on, thinking partly of clocking a reasonable time but
 mainly of being able to stop and sit down.  The third lap wasn't much fun
 but the finish arrived sooner than I had remembered from previous laps -
 result.  In the end it was a 1:36:40 finish (5:22:59 overall), which I was
 very pleased with under the circumstances.

 I learned on this course that it's the mind that controls the legs and
 endurance events are a mental challenge as much as anything - next time I'll
 try not to listen so much!"

 FINALLY...
 The Commonwealth Games Federation has made a 10 minute film about the
 classic Roger Bannister v John Landy mile clash in Vancouver in 1954,
 including footage of the race and interviews with both men conducted by the
 young British long jumper Jazmin Sawyers. In the lead up to next year's
 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow this is the first of several films on landmark
 moments from the history of the Games. You can view it here:. It's intriguing to note that both
 Kiwis in the race utilised a sprinter's crouch start in a mile race.
