 RUNNING TECHNIQUE WORKSHOP
 Karen Weir writes:
 "I am organising a Running Technique Workshop on Sunday 29th March 12-2pm.
 Learn that running is a skill and how you can both improve your performance
 and reduce your injury risk. Suitable for runners of all abilities. The
 workshop is based on drills and exercises rather than lots of running, so if
 you need to do a long run in the morning first, that's fine. The workshop
 includes video analysis and individual feedback based on the five key areas
 of running technique. It's based at The Training Works at 120 St Margarets
 Road, Twickenham TW1 2AA. Cost is £30 per person. For more details check out
 my website:
 or get in touch karen@runwithkaren.com."   

 ON THE RUN
 Thanks to Pete Mulholland for unearthing this, a 20 minutes documentary on
 some of the great New Zealand runners coached by the legendary Arthur
 Lydiard who was largely responsible for the amazing success of Kiwi middle
 and long distance runners in the 1960s and 70s. Her'’s the synopsis for the
 film which was made in 1979:
 "This film showcases legendary running coach Arthur Lydiard's training
 methods through the example of his acolytes, including reigning Olympic
 1,500m champ John Walker. 'Arthur's boys' (Snell, Halberg, Magee) scored
 attention by winning unheralded medals (two golds and a bronze) at the 1960
 Rome Olympics. Lydiard later led the 'flying Finns' to similar success. His
 method revolves around building stamina to complement speed, and was
 influential in popularising jogging globally. Beautifully filmed, a doco
 highlight is Jack Foster's exhilarating scree slope descent " Video:. 

 SIMON MARTIN
 Simon writes: "I'm in Mongolia currently and have done a number of tough
 runs in the Gobi Desert at about 1,500m altitude. In the winter conditions
 are brutal - temperatures while I've been running have been between -15 to
 -25 degrees C. The stunning steppe, sand dunes and mountains are a great
 motivation though to brave the weather "

 TOILETS IN THE PARK
 From March 23rd there will be a 20p charge for using the toilets at Kingston
 Gate, Ham Gate, Richmond Gate?Robin Hood Gate and Sheen Gate. There will be
 no charge at other toilets in the park, for example at Petersham Gate

 WHAT'S HAPPENED
 ***************
 INTER-CLUB RACE including ELLIS CUP, DYSART CUP, HEC PETERSEN TROPHY and
 CLUB JUNIOR CHAMPIONSHIPS  3.8 miles Saturday 7th March in Richmond Park
 There was a lot going on today! No fewer than four separate races in one.
 Unable to find a satisfactory date for the Ellis and Dysart Cups in their
 usual pre-Christmas slot, we experimented with moving them to this
 traditionally low-key end of season race. We'd already re-instituted our
 junior championships for this event too, and then we had to schedule in the
 Hec Petersen Tropy between ourselves and Ealing after the original fixture
 at the Bank of England had been cancelled. The result was a field of well
 over a hundred tackling one lap of our mob match course. 

 Apart from ourselves, the biggest contingent came from the armed forces club
 Milocarians. As has become customary they bolstered their ranks with a
 sizeable squad form the Sandhurst Royal Military Academy. It was one of
 their number, Robbie Sayer, who tried to run away in the early stages but
 recent Hercules signing Dimos Evangelidis was biding his time and came
 through to win by 9 seconds. Also biding his time was Ted Mockett who was
 well back at the start but then raced through like a ....well, you know
 what. Ted finished 4th, Kris Davidson was 9th, then Dave Lawley, Duncan
 Mallison, Stewart Anderson and Richard Kennedy closed in our team of six for
 the men's Ellis Cup. Milocarians retained the trophy easily enough, ahead of
 Hercules Wimbledon and ourselves in third place. Behind us were Stragglers,
 Serpentine and Ealing. Ealing's relatively weak team made sure that we would
 win back the Hec Petersen Trophy.   

 Six clubs were represented in the women's race for the Dysart Cup, but owing
 to the low number of runners from several clubs the team scoring was a
 rather unsatisfactory 2 a side. Serpentine's Liz Wynne was the individual
 winner but Becky Hall 2nd and Sacha Kennedy 4th ensured that Ranelagh
 retained the trophy. Bonnie Morgan, Wiebke Kortum and Leonie Kennedy also
 made the top ten.

 In the club junior championships, Euan Sinclair took the Lotinga Cup  ahead
 of his brother Finlay and Jonny Brook. The Camilla Cup went to Sacha Kennedy
 with her sister Leonie in second place and Livvy Ricketts third.

 CLUTTON CUP 10 miles handicap  Saturday 14th March in Richmond Park
 " This year I mean business ", said Heather Martingell. She had just
 demonstrated the fact by running away with a five minutes win in the Clutton
 Cup. True, Handicapper Angus conceded that he had underestimated Heather,
 but there was no denying that look of steely determination on her face as
 she set off on her second lap with hardly a moment to spare for the usual
 cheery grin and wave. Bert Grieco and Michele Gibson were Heather's nearest
 challengers but she had soon left them in her wake on her way to an
 excellent victory.

 It was good to see 32 members taking numbers for the Clutton on a bright but
 chilly March afternoon. Katie Walton was first away and disconcertingly for
 scratch man Phil Killingley Katie had completed her first 5 miles lap before
 Phil had been set on his way. Katie must have held on to the lead for a good
 part of her second lap too but she had no defence against the Martingell
 onslaught. Bert and Michele held on for second and third places and they too
 were well clear of their nearest pursuers. Ian Kenton led the rest, setting
 an outright 10 miles personal best of 59.54. This was good for second
 fastest of the day, behind Phil Killingley's 59.10. Third best was Ted
 Mockett on 60.48. Fastest woman was Becky Hall on 70.36, ahead of Wiebke
 Kortum's 75.07 and Louise Piear's 80.38.    
                                                                  
                                                                   
 MARITZBURG MARATHON  Saturday 21st February in Pietermaritzburg, South
 Africa
 Lloyd Camp reports:
 " I ran the Maritzburg Marathon in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa, in a quiet
 4.12, having completed the Dusi Canoe Marathon (120km of white water
 paddling and rough country portaging a racing kayak) over the previous three
 days in a total time of 13h30. So much for resting before a big event. The
 race was run in 30 C and high humidity, therefore starting at 05h00. All
 done by breakfast! I wore the Ranelagh shirt  of course, and it elicited
 some queries and conversations along the way. Looking forward to some cool
 weather running in the UK in April "

 The winner represented Orion AC - a local club and nothing to do with Orion
 Harriers, so far as we know!

 CAU INTER-COUNTIES CROSS-COUNTRY CHAMPIONSHIPS  Saturday 7th March at Cofton
 Park, Birmingham
 In the Under 13 Girls race Izzy Atkins finished an excellent 24th out of a
 field of 305 runners. She was second home for Middlesex, who finished just
 out of the team medals in 4th place. Estelle Damant ran well for 97th in a
 field of 275 in the Senior Women’s race. Sadly after one drop-out the Surrey
 team failed to close in a full complement of six runners and so were
 unplaced despite providing the individual winner.

 KINGSTON BREAKFAST RUNS  Sunday 15th March
 We had quite a crowd at the Breakfast Runs, with the biggest contingent

 FINALLY...
 95-year-old Charles Eugster set a new world record for his age group in the
 200 metres at the indoor British Masters in London last week. The former
 dentist recorded an astonishing 55.48 seconds. It may be only 200 metres but
 that represents 7:20 miling pace! http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p02lmykh.
 Wally Garrod adds:
 " There has been much made on the news of the 95 year old breaking the world
 record for 200 metres. Perhaps you could mention our own veteran record
 holder Chalkie White (now gone to the great running track in the sky), who
 in the 1980s won national and European medals on the track and country. In
 1990 he won the national over 85 cross-country title. And not forgetting
 others like Bob Maslin, Bill Harvey, Margaret Auerback, Martin Clark and
 Alan Howard "
