A parkrun DOUBLE IN GDANSK AND GDYNIA 10th May 2014 Peter Fordham writes: The parkrun team in Poland is welcoming a group of parkrunners to the Tricity area on the weekend of the 10th May to take part in one or both of the Gdansk and Gdynia parkruns. It is also hoped that parkrunners from other countries will be there to make it a very special day. The Gdansk parkrun is held in wooded parkland on the edge of this historic and fascinating city. The Gdynia parkrun, the first in Poland, is a beautiful course along the Baltic seafront and this will be the third trip to Gdynia by a group of UK parkrunners. The Tricity area is of significant wartime and political history, being the place where World War 2 started and also where the Solidarity movement was formed. The parkrun Poland team will be our hosts throughout the weekend and have kindly offered to show the group some of the attractions, which will include different options for those that have been before. If you are interested, contact Peter (Ranelagh Member) at firstname.lastname@example.org or 07799 072307 and you will be able to join the group on the trip. He will be able to book you three nights with breakfast at the 3 star Hotel Blick in Gdynia. Airport transfers, Gdynia to Gdansk parkrun transport, and fares for planned trips are included in the total price of £160 per person, or £132 per person if sharing a double/twin room. Flights are not included in the price, but a return flight on Ryanair from Stansted is currently available for around £75, see the times below. Be quick, they will go up! It is hoped that most of the group will travel on Ryanair flight FR2372 departing Stansted at 06.45 on Friday 9th May and flight FR2373 departing Gdansk at 10.15 on Monday 12th May arriving at 11.35. For information on parkrun Poland, visit www.parkrun.pl/gdansk and www.parkrun.pl/gdynia." MABAC LEAGUE REP Penny Merrett writes: "I am currently the MABAC League rep for Ranelagh. Unfortunately family and work commitments mean that I am unable to undertake this role in the way that I would wish. I am hoping that someone else will be prepared to take on the role as I have to step down as soon as possible. Basically the role involves attending four or five evening MABAC meetings a year, organising our MABAC event (usually in March) and generally trying to drum up support for the MABAC events to encourage Ranelagh members to run and to marshal." Contact Penny email@example.com . McLEOD TROPHY and WOMEN'S PERFORMANCE AWARD These competitions are for points scored in all club races during the winter season. With just the last two handicaps to come (Clutton Cup 10 miles and Baker Cup 3 miles), long-time leader Mark Herbert has lost ground to his pursuers led by Rob Curtis. Mark's tally is still 1134 but Rob is not far behind on 1070, with Peter Fordham on 1010. Leader in the women's competition is Marie Synnott-Wells on 1078, comfortably ahead of Megan De Silva on 898 and Becky Hall on 867. Full scoreboard and rules. POINTS PRIZE This one is for consistency in handicaps during the season. With the Clutton and the Baker to come, it's anybody's race. Current leader on 11 points is Bruce McLaren ahead of Mark Herbert and Peter Weir on 10. Full scoreboard and rules here:. RUNNING TECHNIQUE WORKSHOP Karen Weir (one of our coaches) is holding a Running Technique Workshop on Sunday 6th April, from 2-4pm. Running is a skill that can be learned! Learn how to improve your running form and to run more efficiently. Not only will this reduce your risk of injury, once you have mastered the techniques you will also improve your running performance. Spaces are limited to ensure everyone gets individual feedback and video analysis. The cost is £25 (payable in advance), to reserve your place or for more information, please contact Karen@runwithkaren.com. The workshop is not too onerous in terms of running and will focus more on drills and exercises, so do not worry if you have done your long run in the morning or are tapering for your spring marathon. Workshop location: lululemon athletica, 19 Duke Street, Richmond, TW9 1HP. THAMES TOWPATH 10 miles Sunday 27th April at Chiswick Details are here but entries have now closed.

WHAT'S HAPPENED *************** INTER-CLUB RACE including CLUB JUNIOR CHAMPIONSHIPS Saturday 1st March 3.8 miles in Richmond Park It was almost a summer day for this little jaunt around one lap of our mob match course. This is usually a pretty low-key event but it was given a little added interest this year by incorporating a revived club junior championship. Hercules Wimbledon and the Milocarians were our opponents and it was Jonathan Cornish of Hercules who took control of the race from the outset. Ted Mockett gave chase but when the Hercules man put his foot on the gas in the second half, it was all over. Cornish eventually came in a good minute ahead of Ted. Nick Wood of Milos was third, and five more of his clubmates appeared in the first twelve home. This gave them the edge in eight a side scoring which they never relinquished, though in the end it was very close - only thirteen points separating all three clubs. Behind Ted, our scoring eight included Dave Lawley, Howard Gleave, Vaughan Ramsay, Peter Faull, Marie Synnott-Wells, Olivia Lloyd and Becky Hall. Young Olivia did her best to hang on to Marie and though slipping behind a little on the final climb she was rewarded with the Camilla Cup club junior women's championship. Second junior to finish was Tom Kearey and he was awarded the Lotinga Cup. Kabir Sait was third junior, followed by Euan Sinclair, Jamie Heron-West, Noah and Tor Heron-Brett and Josie Kearey. It was good to see eight juniors taking part and we'll hope the numbers will increase in years to come. TOKYO MARATHON Sunday 23rd February As reported in the last e-news, Heather Martingell completed her tour of the World Marathon Majors, but we omitted to mention that Phil Jackson also achieved the same feat. Phil writes: "We didn't actually see a lot of Tokyo but my impression is of unrelenting concrete and flyovers. The jet-lag we suffered was severe and caused the city to be even more confusing and bewildering and crowded than it really is. We were based in Shinjuku near the start (much concrete, many flyovers) and this required the use of Shinjuku station which according to my Rough Guide is the busiest station in the world. Apparently it is very easy to get lost in the station. I did. Several times. The marathon is shaped like a giant X. Starting in the top left hand corner you run for 10k before turning a sharp right for a 10k out and back section. I enjoyed this because you see the lead runners (who got a huge cheer from us lesser mortals) coming the other way on the opposite carriageway and then you can look out for your Ranelagh (and SLH and Malvern Joggers) running buddies. The route was superbly supplied with loos and attendants which proved vital for one of us who had made the mistake of going to the pasta party the night before. You then cross the centre of the X for another out and back stretch (about 15k) up towards the top right hand corner. This is more bendy and has significant undulations. There was even a flurry of snow at one point. Again you can look out for running buddies in the opposite carriageway (having already missed the lead runners who had long since completed this section). By now you have done 21 miles as you turn left for the last section of the X and it is here that the fun starts. You ascend what seemed then to be very significant flyovers and the last four miles seem never ending. You turn the final bend with less than a mile to go and there, in front of you, cruelly, is yet another flyover. At this point I could have wept but I managed, very slowly, to finish. Altogether, a tough race, with a nasty twist at the end. Brilliant organisation and support but not one I would do again. Many thanks to my Ranelagh/SLH/MJ buddies for sharing it with me." Here's Heather's story: "I wasn't sure I'd even make the start line after the twelve hour flight left me with a very tight lower back. Another marathon first: popping and sharing pain killers after bag drop :-/ My objective was merely completion of the sixth and last of the World Marathon Majors. On the day the weather was clear, crisp and cold. Perfect. I'd say the event was very good and well organised, really well marshalled and supported with a big plus of being largely flat but with some nasty inclines near the finish. But I have to say that due to some weird organisation of the start corrals (long story - Japanese Athletic Club entry for any made-up estimation of finish time giving folk a fast corral position) made the first mile really slow and frustrating even at my leisurely pace. Speedy peeps were running in the gutter to get past. Dangerous. A long old trip, but worth it for Phil and I to get on this https://www.worldmarathonmajors.com/UK/certificate/finishers/six .....when they eventually update the site. Big, big plus were the boxes lined up to collect cups and rubbish. No litter on the course! Can you believe that with over 35,000 runners?" 1 D Chumba (Kenya) 2:05.43 (chip time 2:05.42) T Tsegaye (Ethiopia) 2:22.23 (2:22.23 - 1st woman) Phil Jackson 3:38.11 (3:35.43) Carola Richter 3:49.09 (3:46.41) Heather Martingell 4:28.28 (4:23.09) Tamsin Burland 4:47.25 (4:36.34) LAST FRIDAY OF THE MONTH 5km Friday 28th February in Hyde Park 1 D White (Croy) 15.59 21 S Kieran (HHH) 17.51 (1st woman) 160 Alan Davidson 24.15 CAMBRIDGE BOUNDARY MARATHON Sunday 2nd March Michelle Davies was fifth woman home in this multi-terrain event. She writes: "Wind in my face the whole way round, fields of muddy water, cattle grids, countless farm fences to climb... I think that could have been my hardest marathon yet." 1 T Stevens (C&C) 2:58.13 31 A Kirkham (Norwich) 3:38.12 (1st woman) 51 Michelle Davies 3:45.05 READING HALF MARATHON Sunday 2nd March There was a good Ranelagh representation headed by Carl Selya-Hammer and Estelle Damant, and quite a few personal bests. Some Facebook comments: Carl Selya-Hammer: "I made it round in 74:10, not quite the 73 minutes I was hoping for but nevertheless a 30 seconds PB from six months ago. Hills and wind were tough, and my watch died at 11.5 miles, which was probably a good thing!" Nick Twomey: "Tough course running into the wind for the last three miles...nonetheless a pb for me at 1:18:27" Rick Jenner: "Very windy and a couple of hills but I broke 80 mins with a 1:19.37, a 2 mins pb. Bring on London!" Michael Everard: "Last mile was tough but I was very happy with a pb of 1:22. Well done all!" Matthew Copp: "Perfect marathon training....great to see so many blue/gold vests...1:28" Marc Snaith: "The natural conclusion to this morning's disaster at Reading Half Marathon is to declare my Steve Redgrave moment. If you ever see me race over 10k again feel free to... You know the rest." 1 S Overall (B&B) 1:04.44 (chip time 1:04.14) 65 S Partridge (Leeds) 1:12.20 (1:12.20) 99 Carl Selya-Hammer 1:14.16 (1:14.10) 175 Nick Twomey 1:18.32 (1:18.27) 211 Rick Jenner 1:19.45 (1:19.39) 266 Nick Wright 1:21.13 (1:21.04) 288 James Whistler 1:21.52 (1:21.38) 298 Michael Everard 1:22.05 (1:22.00) 314 Estelle Damant 1:22.33 (1:22.27) 375 Mark Herbert 1:23.52 (1:23.44) 608 Lars Lundqvist 1:28.01 (1:27.45) 620 Stewart Anderson 1:28.12 (1:27.48) 669 Marc Snaith 1:28.45 (1:28.37) 693 Matthew Copp 1:29.03 (1:28.46) 1158 Daniel Little 1:34.01 (1:32.39) 1448 Simon Ogle 1:36.26 (1:34.32) 1886 Gwen McCormack 1:39.20 (1:36.56) 4743 Hannah Doyle 1:51.56 (1:50.25) 7074 Phil Roberts 2:00.12 (1:59.14) 7517 Lindsey Simmonds 2:01.48 (2:01.01) 8740 Michelle Hovanessian 2:06.23 (2:06.20) 9317 Leeanne Bryce 2:09.09 (2:04.39) 9542 Louise Atkinson 2:10.09 (2:06.20) 10313 Kevin Kearey 2:13.58 (2:12.59) 10314 Ann Kearey 2:13.59 (2:12.59) BATH HALF MARATHON Sunday 2nd March 1 N Kirui (Kenya) 1:03.13 (chip time 1:03.13) 18 P Lekapana (Kenya) 1:10.53 (1:10.53 - 1st woman) 1978 Julia Bailey 1:44.12 (1:43.43) LLANELLI WATERSIDE HALF MARATHON Sunday 2nd March Megan De Silva finished 6th in the women's event, just a few seconds outside her target of 90 minutes. 1 S Paterson (Les C) 1:13.48 55 A Thomas (TROTS) 1:26.44 (1st woman) 86 Megan De Silva 1:30.09 SILVERSTONE HALF MARATHON Sunday 2nd March 1 C Thompson (AFD) 1:05.08 41 Paul Nicoll 1:21.55 72 I Keane (Imp C) 1:24.12 THAMES RIVERSIDE 20 miles Sunday 2nd March 1 J Bannister (Clapham) 2:02.28 38 Z Pike (Herc Wimb) 2:25.44 (1st woman) 88 Simon Martin 2:40.29 KINGFIELD CANTER 2.85 miles handicap Wednesday 5th March 1 T Bodoano (unatt) 24.01 (actual time 24.01) 21 Alan Davidson 27.31 (23.16) 28 Steve Rowland 30.24 (26.54) SHARM-EL-SHEIKH SPRINT TRIATHLON Saturday 8th March Gill Sanders won the women's race in 59.12 with a lead of thirty seconds.

I hoped to use it as preparation for London but once on my way I felt a little frisky and put in more effort than I intended. Running conditions were perfect as we headed out into the intensively farmed land at the foothills of the towering Alps. Every now and again a sweet aroma would waft in our direction and bring back pleasant memories. They say smell can activate memories and pig slurry is as potent as any. This small marathon was very well organised including a massage at the finish as well as pasta and drinks in the ornate surrounds of Piazza Vittoria. The only danger occurred as we exited the city when it got a little congested and cries of 'Bolla! Bolla!' rang out. I just missed a close encounter with a narrow sentry-like bollard. A few metres later one of these bollards lay propped against a wall looking as if it had been recently uprooted. A high pitched siren was heard approaching. At around the 20 mile mark with the runners well spread out I was overtaken by a runner, which is not an unusual occurrence, but instead of forging on he moved right when I moved right and left when I moved left and continued with this manoeuvre until I felt my dander rising. It would have been no problem if we were facing into a brisk wind but the air was still while I began to blow a fuse and in my best Italian accented English I brushed past and told him to xxxxo outo my wayo you xxxxo eejit. I didn't even know if he was Italian but I wasn't to see him again until he arrived at the finish roughly 30 minutes behind me. It was clear he was suffering after he overtook me and was wobbling from side to side. I approached him as he slumped on the pavement ready to apologise after my outburst but before I could do so he shook my hand and thanked me for my encouraging words. A language barrier can sometimes be useful! The race was well marshalled, the pasta and frutta di mara pizza were so very tasty and the snow covered Alps with their deep valleys a wondrous sight. I finished in 2:53:46 and was more than happy."
