 OPENING RUN and THOMAS CUP HANDICAP  Saturday 13th September
 The Thomas Cup 3.8 miles handicap, the Opening Run of our 134th season,
 takes place on Saturday 13th September. All members are welcome. We'll try
 to start the race as close to 3pm as we can, but before you go up to the
 start Ken Powley will take the annual club photograph in the Park across the
 road from the clubhouse at about 2.45pm. Handicapper Angus is preparing the
 handicap, but unfortunately he won't be there on the day. So you can help
 our hard-working officials in several ways:
 1  Arrive early
 2  Come to the clubhouse to register - please DON'T go straight to the start
 unless you really really don't have time to get to the clubhouse
 3  If you're a new member and/or haven't taken part in more than one or two
 club races, it would help and save time calculating your handicap if you
 could arrive with some idea of what you think you can run for 5km - e.g. a
 parkrun time. 
 4  Familiarise yourself with the course. It will be flagged and marshalled
 but we're trying to progress to the position where all members know their
 way around our home courses in the Park. Here's an annotated map:.
 Andy Bickerstaff and Trevor Maguire have also put together a brief video of
 the course - quality not quite what they had hoped owing to editing problems.
 But it's worth a look if only to watch Andy and Trevor get progressively more
 soaked as the rain gets heavier and heavier! Here it is:.
       
 RANELAGH HARRIERS FIXTURE CARD AND GAZETTE
 Printed Fixture Cards for our 2014-15 season are now available at the
 clubhouse. Fixtures Sec Andy Woodhouse adds: "There is a limited number of
 printed cards; so if you'd prefer a electronic version, please contact me
 Andrew-woodhouse@hotmail.co.uk."
 The new fixture list is also now up on our website, courtesy of Ken Powley
 here:. 

 Also freshly published is a new edition of our printed Gazette, covering the
 12 months up to spring / early summer 2014. Please help yourself to a copy
 from the clubhouse.

 If you'd prefer to have a Fixture card and / or a Gazette sent to you please
 reply to this e-news giving your postal address.

 SPECIAL TRAINING NIGHT  Tuesday 16th September 
 Karen Weir writes:
 "On Tuesday the 16th September, club training night will be extra special
 and you are all invited. lululemon athletica will be holding a pop-up shop
 so you can check out the latest run and training kit - make sure you bring
 your credit cards. They'll also be providing post-run snacks to tempt you to
 stay around for a post-run stretch session led by local yoga teacher (and
 runner) Veronika from Yogashooli. Then to finish off the evening, Michael
 Nichol from St Mary's Clinic will be giving a brief talk on how the
 facilities at the clinic can help you improve your running performance.
 Training from 7pm will be on as usual, these post-run activities will
 kick-off from 8.30pm. Hope you can make it!"

 RUNNING STUDY - FREE AEROBIC FITNESS TEST
 Paul Hough, Lead Sport and Exercise Scientist at St Mary's University
 Twickenham writes:
 "We will shortly be conducting a short validity study using  a wireless
 vest/bra that records physiological measures, such as breathing frequency,
 during exercise. We are currently recruiting male and female runners to take
 part in the study. The study will involve one laboratory test where we will
 assess a number of measures related to aerobic fitness (VO2 max, lactate
 threshold etc.) - this type of assessment costs 150 at The St Mary's
 Clinic, but if you take part in this trial it will be completely FREE . The
 assessment will last approximately 1.5 hours and will take place in
 September/October 2014 at the CHASES Human Performance Laboratory at St
 Mary's University.
 Interested in taking part? If you currently run on a regular basis and are
 free from illness/injury, please contact Paul Hough paul.hough@smuc.ac.uk .

 WHAT'S HAPPENED
 ***************
 SURREY ROAD RELAYS  Sunday 7th September at Wimbledon Park
 The Surrey Road Relay championships moved to Wimbledon Park in 1998 and
 since then we can boast that we have never come away from the event
 empty-handed. An enviable sequence - could we maintain it? Our senior teams
 were not in contention this year, but our record was kept intact by our men
 over 40 who won gold medals and our women over 45 who received the silvers.  

 So, let's look at the medal-winners first, starting with the gold medallist
 M40 team. To put it simply, we led all the way. Paul Doyle ran the second
 fastest time of the day in winning the opening leg, though Wimbledon
 Windmilers made him work hard for it. Trevor Maguire extended our lead to
 nearly forty seconds on lap 2, and his time was fourth fastest of the day.
 Then came Ed Barker who squeezed out a few more seconds from the pursuing
 Windmilers. This left new member Richard Holme to bring it safely home -
 which he did, with almost half a minute to spare. 

 The W45 race, over only three stages, was dominated by South London Harriers
 who finished two and a half minutes clear of Ranelagh. Wiebke Kortum, Ellen
 Clague - choosing a grand way to celebrate her birthday! - and Marie
 Synnott-Wells formed our trio and they were equally isolated in second
 place, finishing over four minutes clear of the bronze medallists. Marie and
 Wiebke ran the second and fourth fastest times of the day. 

 Our M50 team won silver medals last year, and three-quarters of the team
 were here again, but the opposition was tougher this time. The Ranelagh team
 ran only half a minute slower than last year, but were never able to rise
 above 5th place - though in the end only about a minute from the medals.
 Martin Halvey set our fastest time. Our B team brought up the rear in 11th
 place. 

 We had somewhat scratch teams for the senior races, and the men's team was
 actually completed by two of our victorious M40s running a second lap! After
 Nick Twomey had completed the first leg in 14th place, Phil Killingley set
 our fastest time in moving us into the top ten. We weren't able to stay
 there though, and finished in 12th place.           

 In the senior women's race Megan De Silva brought us home 4th on the opener
 in our fastest time, and Becky Hall kept us there. But W45 reserves Sonia
 and Heather had to complete the team and we inevitably slipped back a little
 to 7th.    

         
 WHEATSHEAF AND PIGEON 5km  Saturday 2nd August at Laleham
 Andy Hayward reports:
 "Michele Gibson and I ran the Wheatsheaf & Pigeon (our local pub,
 affectionately known as the "Wee & Pee"!) 5k on 2nd August. Fast flat course
 along the towpath between Staines and Laleham - it was actually 5.25k, but
 who's counting. Having not run for the best part of three months until the
 beginning of the previous week, I exceeded all expectations by coming 5th
 overall, just about twenty seconds behind the first lady. I was first M50.
 It's great to be back running.
 P.S. I suppose I should admit that the entire field was only SIX, Michele
 actually beat me and was the ONLY lady, and I was the ONLY runner over 50.
 Still, it sounded good for a while! Forgot to mention the times  which were
 27:39 for me, and 27:19 for Michele. It would be great to get a few more
 down for the event next year. It starts at noon on a Saturday as part of a
 charity fun day. The race entry is free (charity donation of £5 suggested)
 and they bought us all a drink in the pub afterwards - hard to beat that."
 
 EUROPEAN VETERANS ATHLETICS CHAMPIONSHIPS  22nd to 31st August in Izmir,
 Turkey.
 Alan Davidson reports:
 "There was stifling heat in Izmir (up to 40C) and it was only comfortable in
 the air-conditioned hotel or on the ferries that criss-crossed the bay -
 free to athletes when staff were aware, or worth splashing out 60p for the
 sea breeze. Common sights in Izmir include dogs roaming the streets and
 people with stupid slogans on their T-shirts but there was real fun in
 Selcuk where a stork was trying to snatch necklaces off a stall! 

 The anticipated heat (great for sprinters) drastically reduced the distance
 race fields and in my M65 1500/5000/10000 metres races I was the only Brit
 and all became straight finals. It was ominous before my 10000m when the
 ambulance staff asked me to pose with them for pictures (perhaps
 anticipating trade later) but they did cheer me on. The race had oppressive
 heat and my forehead was pumping making me worry that I coudn't stay the
 course. Lap counting was excellent, not only personally - my last 7 laps
 counted down - but at each passage of the line a computerised screen gave
 the athletes' names with number of laps to go (not like in Poznan where my
 lap counter kept wandering off or in Slovenia where I was confused with
 another Brit I had lapped, he being pulled out at 24 laps with them wanting
 me to do 26). I perhaps should keep this to myself but latterly I was
 struggling round in 2.03 laps but upon seeing 50.06 at the bell I gave one
 last effort to try at least to keep my p.w. under 52 minutes. I reeled over
 the line in 51.58 to be gratefully held up by two young lady staff and given
 water and seated until recovered. My time amazingly somehow gave me 6th!. I
 was really impressed by a Turkish runner who had just two short stumps for
 arms and when it came to the drinks/sponge station manned on each lap a
 helper ran with him to pour the water into his mouth. Seriously I was
 initially a bit confounded as to what to do when post race he kindly came up
 to me to 'shake hands'. My best hope for a reasonable time on the track was
 scuppered as the 1500m came when I still had the 10000m in my legs. I was
 the last of the finishers in a disappointing 6.34. I had four restful days
 before my 5000m but it was difficult to rest in 40C heat and my only session
 was in the hotel fitness room where thankfully background was Mozart rather
 than disco 'music'.  

 During train travel my looks got me unsolicited a 50% reduction for elderly
 people. The metro I found awkward with husbands getting their wives to give
 up their seats for me and in the amazingly fertile fields of wheat /
 sugarbeet / melons / peaches / nuts etc elderly women in the heat of the day
 were bent over planting and picking the crops. A coach trip gave me the
 chance to see the extensive, spectacular ancient ruins at Ephesus. The 5000m
 was a bit worrying as three times the medical safety officer stepped onto
 the track towards me but thankfully accepted my thumbs up each time allowing
 me to continue. Fortunately she didn't envisage the end of my rather
 vigorous (for me) last lap and I finished in a respectable 23.33 in the
 oppressive heat - then being quickly assisted by a Turkish official who sat
 me down, got me water, sponged my face, massaged my neck and shoulders and
 pointing to me said to a British official 'my father!'. Russians filled the
 first three places in the M65 5000m and 10000m but at least I showed the
 flag even if it was at half mast. A new country and culture for me which I
 always appreciate. Kindness was the order of the day for the local people. I
 survived the conditions but perhaps behind that story lies in my leaving
 home with my weight my regular 9st while upon my return it was 7st13lbs!"
