CHRIS BRASHER PONDS RUN Tuesday 2nd July sees our annual departure from usual Tuesday night training for the Chris Brasher Ponds Run. The idea is to visit 20 specific ponds in Richmond Park. Details here:. RUN WITH KAREN AND YOGA FOR RUNNERS Ranelagh Coach Karen Weir writes: "Join me for a social run in Richmond Park followed by a special 'Yoga for Runners' class on Sunday 7th July. I have hooked up with the lovely ladies at Lululemon to put on a special yoga session aimed at runners. Yoga is a great complement to running. Not only does it help you to stay flexible, strong and balanced it can help to reduce your injury risk. I always feel an inch taller after a yoga class! We'll be heading out at 9am from Pembroke Lodge for a social run and then we'll finish at the Perseverance Clinic studio close to Richmond Station with a private yoga class from 10.30 - 11.30. The morning costs £10 (pay on the day) and is open to runners/yogis of all levels and ability. Please do reserve your place in advance though, so I know how many are coming. Email email@example.com to reserve your place or for more details." MARATHON HEROS A few weeks ago Wally Garrod posed the question "Who in Ranelagh had run the most marathons?" Here are a few of the replies he received: Ian Grange..41 John Hanscomb..92, best time 2:42 Mike Peace..at least 33 (every London) and more, best time 2:38 Peter Fordham..24 plus 5 Ultras, best time 3.00.28 Andy Hayward..57 plus 15 Ultras, best time 2:57 (Ultras include 100km in 8:31 and three London to Brightons, best time 7:08) Ivan Boggis..24, best time 2:35 Heather Martingell.. 33 plus 1 Ultra, best time 3:45 Finally it would be churlish not to mention our club hero - Hugh Jones..70 (at least), best time 2. 09 in winning the London!!!!

WHAT'S HAPPENED *************** LANZAROTE MARATHON (and warm-up) Saturday 18th May David Rowe reports: "In a similar style to that of Simon Burrell a few weeks ago here's a report from the Lanzarote Marathon. With the run being twice as long as the 'Majorca Half Marathon (and warm-up)' it was only fair for the organisers to double the distance of the swim and bike parts - 2.4 miles and 112 miles respectively. Anyway, onto the run... Heading onto the run is a strange feeling. You've just swum 2.4 miles, ridden 112 and now you're about to run a marathon. Yes, a full 26.2 mile marathon. That is one hell of a warm up for a marathon! This is when you hope that the nutrition strategy that you've being following for the past 7+ hours is going to put you in good stead for the next few hours running in the heat of the day. Only time will tell. In the race rules for the event the following rule is explicitly given for the run: 'No form of locomotion other than running, walking or crawling is allowed.' The run course is 42.2km and consists of three laps: first, one of around 12 miles and then laps of about 7 miles each. Four weeks ago I ran the London Marathon in 3:26 and it felt comfortable. Running that pace after what I'd just done wouldn't feel comfortable but I had in the back of my head that if I could run anywhere near 3 hours 30 that would be amazing. My plan was to go for 8 minute miling and just stick with it as long as possible. The first mile was 7:43 - OK, a little quick but that's normal for me! Followed by 7:58, 7:56, 7:58, 8:09, 8:01, 7:58. All was going well. It wasn't as comfortable as I'd like it to be but my heart rate was in a good place and I felt confident. The course is tough. It's not really flat, it's gently undulating. And there's plenty of headwind! The surface is a mixture of tarmac and paving along a fairly busy seafront. For a fair bit of the course there's restaurants and bars with people sat or stood outside and cheering you on. The only really quiet part (on the first large lap) goes past the airport - you're literally about 10 metres away from the runway on a cycle/walking path just beside a rather high fence with the airport on one side and the sea on the other. At the end of the first lap (about 12 miles) I had been averaging 8:02 miling. This was all good. I was running through the aid stations taking a combination of water/energy drink and also picked up a couple of large ice cubes at one point (which were lovely down my shorts!!). I felt all right and just wanted to do the same again over the two shorter laps. Well... that feeling didn't last for long! I was now on the shorter laps and at the far turnaround point (about 15.5 miles in) I was really starting to struggle. I said to myself that I'd complete this loop (3.5 miles back to the start/finish turnaround) and then on the final 7 mile loop I'd walk the aid stations. Well, three and a half minutes (not miles, minutes!) later and I was walking. This wasn't in the plan but my head was telling my legs that I needed to walk. The strategy at the aid stations was to drink whatever I felt I could manage without having too much and then getting a large cup of water at the last 'table' and either pouring it over my head or just throwing it all over my face. Then start running again. And repeat. This continued to the start/finish turnaround point at about 19 miles. My average pace for the previous seven miles had dropped to 8:30 miling. Heading back onto the final loop the course was really starting to get busy with other runners (as we all took different amounts of time to do our 'warm-up'). Getting onto the run fairly early means lots of space but now it was getting busier as more and more people were coming in from the bike segment. It was great to get to the final turnaround - at this point it was shortly before 5:30pm and the overall time was therefore 10 hours 30 minutes. I had 30 minutes to do the final 3.5 miles to beat 11 hours. Under normal circumstances that should be fine. This was not. I'd just run the previous 3.5 miles in nearly 35 minutes. That's 10 minute miling pace. Not what I had planned. I was falling apart. A chap I found myself talking to tried to convince me that I could finish the race in under 11 hours. 'We've got 17 minutes to cover 3km. We can do this.' For about 30 seconds I still believed that it wasn't possible and then thought that I should do whatever I can over the last couple of miles. It didn't matter. The finish was so close. Food, drink, warm clothes. Actually, the thought of not having to run another step was the main selling point for me. Right, let's get this show on the road. I pushed on. I moved ahead of Chris and he said 'Good running, stay strong' or something similar. I ran through the aid stations without getting anything. I went up and down kerbs to avoid other runners. I took the 'racing line' wherever possible. This is what they call zipping up your mansuit. Mine was done right up to the top! Next thing I'm getting closer to the line. The support was amazing and I remember seeing a friend Alan standing there raising his pint of beer to me! As I got to the finishing chute I waved my arm - showing my two coloured wristbands (that showed I had done my laps) and was let through. I looked up, saw the clock was reading almost 10 hours 57 so I eased off and enjoyed the moment. Sunglasses off (it's all about the finish photo you know!) and I crossed the line. My marathon time was 3:38:26. This is an average of 8:20 miling. The final 3.5 miles I got back from 10 minutes miling to 8:34 miling. I'd call that a comeback. Marathon time: 3:38:26, Ironman Lanzarote: 10 hours 57 minutes 2 seconds. My marathon was the 215th quickest on the day. I ran the 46th quickest marathon in my age group but as a number of the faster runners actually finished behind me (so were slower in the swim/bike) I moved further up the field. The fastest marathon was run in 2:50:52. The male winner ran 2:55:03. The female winner ran 2:58:37 - outstanding. The slowest was 7:15. With the final scores on the doors I finished the race overall in 193rd place and was 35th in my age group. Photos and more information about the warm-up can be read here:" BUPA WESTMINSTER MILE Sunday 26th May With a separate race for each age group the action continued from 9.30am through to 3.30pm. The course started on The Mall and finished in front of Buckingham Palace. Shown below are overall positions. Individually, Becky Hall was first in the 30-35 age group and Marc Snaith and Wally Garrod took fourth place in the 35-40 and over 70 groups respectively. 1 J Wildrianne (Derby) 4.23 31 Marc Snaith 4.57 188 Becky Hall 5.59 194 Rob Curtis 6.00 466 Hannah Doyle 7.04 470 Sharon Dooley 7.06 525 Heather Martingell 7.21 745 Wally Garrod 8.21 757 Teresa Segovia 8.24 COMRADES MARATHON 54 miles / 87 km Sunday 2nd June Durban - Pietermaritzburg Karen Weir reports: "Comrades Up Run 2013, will go down as one of the toughest days of my life. I can't really say I enjoyed any of the 87km I covered. The 4000m of climbing and 2000m of descending in 30 degree heat whilst battling the Bergwind which comes from the north across the Sahara bringing sand and the occasional stray rubbish bin into your path, drained me physically and mentally. Plagued by cramp, an unquenchable thirst and some really quite unpleasant chafing in places that you really don't need to know about, Peter and I kept telling each other 'We are never doing this again', or 'Once this is over we are never coming back'. However, less than 24 hours after finally crossing the finish line we had both convinced ourselves that we have to go back in 2014 to do the Down Run and get our back to back medals. So why would we consider putting ourselves through this torturous journey again? Well simply because we know we can go faster and do better! And also because it was an extraordinary experience to be part of something with such a long and moving history, that is part of the fabric of South Africa. And because the supporters were amazing, the other runners inspirational, the finish line unforgettable, the aid stations plentiful, well organised and stocked with ice cold water even after 10 hours. Because you get goose bumps at the start when 18,000 people sing Shosholoza and then Chariots of Fire rings out. Because there are 5 brutal hills with names and about 25 others without, but if they were in any other marathon they'd be called Heartbreak Hill or Cardiac Climb. Because I cried at the end when it got to the 12 hour cut off and people didn't get to register a finish, pushing for the line, but it was too late. Because I have an even bigger respect for the legend that is Bruce Fordyce after having the honour to meet and run with him, how he has raced that distance 30 times winning 9 times is incredible. Because it didn't really hurt that much, because the weather can't be that challenging two years in a row, or simply because we're not quite right in the head. Or maybe it's just because no matter what I tell people, I just like the challenge, I like the uncertainty of whether it is possible and I just want to see what I am truly capable of - more than I ever dreamed. So we will be going back in 2014, everyone has told us it's the easier direction. Mind you before we started this year, everyone said the Up Run was the easiest option. But this is our only chance to get Comrades back to back medals and to really say 'I've run Comrades'. If anyone is keen to try it for themselves, let me know. Would be great to get a Ranelagh Ultra Racing Team together and I know someone who can help with logistics so start saving your pennies. Entries open in September!!" Results were in the last e-news.

Mike was driving, my newly acquired veteran's legs in the front, and the two youngsters, Vaughan and Mark, in the back. We were pleased to find that everyone had brought supplies for the day out. Mark had water, Vaughan had kiwi fruit and cherries. I had mini pork pies and caramel short bread. As we were starting as we meant to go on we cracked open the pies and the short bread. This was followed a short time after arrival at the start by bacon butties for those of us not running the first leg. Mark went off to do a warm up rather than have us wave our sarnies at him. We got our first suspicion things might not go to plan shortly after the start when Mark took the lead in the first 200m of the school track. He still held 2nd place after leaving the track and heading out on the road. Mike took great pleasure in telling me that I was likely to take over in the top three. In my mind I had a picture of the reaction of the other competitors when Team Ranelagh went from 1st to 10th before making it out of the field at the start of the second leg. Thankfully Mark did the honourable thing and came in in 4th place. A great effort by him and not quite so embarrassing for me. I can truthfully say that I have never started a race so fast in my life. I was easily under 7 min a mile, uphill and into the wind as I took off. I kept this up all the way to the gate out of the field and until I was safely sheltered behind an impressive South Downs hedgerow. This soon became a walk as the hill got steeper and I was swiftly passed by two runners, leaving me in 6th. I did however feel a certain amount of pressure not to let the side down and as I got half way into the admittedly easiest leg and was still in 6th and in sight of 5th I thought I should give it a lash. I didn't so much speed up as not slow down. In the end I got passed by three more but passed one and came down the hill to hand over to Vaughan in 8th. When we arrived at the handover for the final leg we were immediately hailed by a Reading official of some sort who knew Ranelagh very well and seemed to expect great things of us. When we told him that we were the Ranelagh Harriers B Team and there was in fact only one team entered he walked off looking a bit confused and muttering to himself. Before long Vaughan came charging out of the bushes still in 8th place but closely followed by the chap in 9th. He says he was dazzled by emerging so fast into the light but we think the manoeuvre he pulled at this point looked more like it came from the rugby fields of his native New Zealand than the running track. He handed over to Mike who was immediately impeded by the opposition runner in a revenge attack dropping us to 9th. He claims that this put him off so much that he was prevented from mounting a challenge for the top three. We were under strict instructions from Mike to have the BBQ up and running when he got in so Mark and I used a whole box of matches trying to get it lit. It was only then we realised that we were sitting there with Vaughan who had spent much of his youth in Australia and therefore was genetically programmed to be able to light a BBQ in any conditions!!! It was difficult to spot the relay teams finishing amongst the Half Marathoners and Marathoners but as we counted them in we thought we were still in with a chance of a respectable finish. Soon Mike came into view looking strong but we were still unsure of where we had finished. The only person Mike remembered being passed by was the individual Marathon winner (a very impressive sub 3hrs). At one point post race we thought we might have come 7th which, based on Mike not having actually passed anyone could only have come about by some other runners getting lost on route. I am not ashamed to say that we did take some pleasure in that thought but in the end we were confirmed as 9th out of over 80 teams. All that remained was for us to have our BBQ and get told off by a Park Ranger for having a hot BBQ in a national park. The trip home was spent in the satisfied glow of having represented Ranelagh to the best of our abilities. Performance of the day I think went to Mike for a great effort on a tough leg four, with an honourable mention to Mark for his first 400m and to Vaughan for taking on the toughest leg of the day. I would recommend this race to everyone. It accommodates all standards and the legs range from fairly easy to tough so there is something for everyone. The element of having to actually tag your next runner gives it a real sense of excitement and the finish area is perfect for a post race relax." 1 Whispering Grass 2:50.37 9 Ranelagh 3:19.03 Mark Herbert 4 52.17 Jar O'Brien 8 41.56 Vaughan Ramsay 8 55.11 Mike White 9 49.34 CHILTERN CHASE 10km Sunday 9th June at Ewelme 1 N Jones (Newbury) 34.37 (chip time 34.37) 254 Marina Quayle 57.43 (57.37) 378 Louise Atkinson 69.22 (68.47) MOUNT ETNA SUPER MARATHON Saturday 15th June in Sicily Gavin Jones retires from racing...again: "I know I said I was packing in the competitive stuff, but there was one race that tickled my imagination which I thought I would like to do one day - slightly more than a marathon all the way up Mount Etna from the beach to 3,000 metres. Well, they suspended it for a few years due to organisational problems and I sort of forgot about it but then believe it or not I actually dreamed about it a couple of months ago - and that prompted me to Google it again. I saw that they had resumed it last year and I thought it just might be a fitting Last Hurrah - more so than the fairly anonymous Half Marathon I did in December. So I started putting in some 2 and 3 hour runs, finding as many hills as possible. The race was on Saturday - and it was truly amazing. You start on the edge of the beach with this colossal volcano in front of you and you run all the way up, or let's say you run up to 33k when you leave the road, at an altitude of 1,800 metres, and go onto the gravelly lava path. From there you climb 1,200 metres in 10k on difficult terrain. And many stretches are so steep that you try to run but you are going no faster than if you walk so you are just wasting energy. In recent years only the winner has run all the way, and I think most participants walk all of the last 10k. It's about 25 degrees when you start on the beach at 8:30 am, and when you get to the top it's often close to freezing with snow on the ground. You go through every type of landscape and the last 8k or so, past the tree line, are amazing - just black lava everywhere and amazing views over Sicily and Calabria. It's no mass event, with a limit of about 160 starters. From 0 to 3000 metres the organizers claim it's in the Guinness Book of Records as the official race with the biggest altitude change from start to finish in the world. Anyway, I came 6th in 4 hours 44 minutes, first M50 (Ed's note: first M50 by over an hour!). I started very cautiously and I was overtaking people the whole way, which is obviously good for morale. I hauled in the first woman in the last kilometre. I really recommend it to anyone, whether for a grueling challenge or just an amazing and 'different' holiday experience. The only problem is that there is an 8 hours time limit and you have to pass 33k in 4 hrs 30 mins, so you can't walk it all!" 1 L Trincheri (Italy) 3:50.38 6 Gavin Jones 4:44.51 SELF TRANSCENDENCE 2 miles Monday 17th June at Battersea Park 1 T Beedell (WGEL) 9.43 59 Alan Davidson 14.40 BUSHY PARK parkrun 5km Saturday 1st June In addition to those shown in the last e-news, Nick Twomey also ran and finished 10th in 17.29.

Australian Jessica Pinney has had a map of Richmond Park tattooed onto her thigh. According to the Daily Mail, "Walks through Richmond Park helped her beat depression when she lived in England. Although she's now back in Melbourne, she says the Park is still part of her. 'I feel like Richmond Park is my home and I wanted to have it tattooed on me so it's always with me and I'm kind of always there,' she said. 'It'll be hilarious if I ever get asked for directions in the park again - I can pull down my trousers or pull up my skirt and give them some really good advice'." Full story and pictures:.
