 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

 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
 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

 "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."

 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.    

 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:.  

 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.

 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?"

 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
 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
 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."

 BRESCIA MARATHON  Sunday 9th March in Brescia, Italy
 Martin Halvey reports:
 "I decided on impulse to partake in a marathon instead of the Finchley 20
 but there are not too many marathons locally at this time of year so I ended
 up in Italy where I ran the Brescia 26 mile 385 yards race. 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."

 Martin finished 19th overall, the leading over 50.
