THURSDAY NIGHT TRACK TRAINING AT OSTERLEY The club is subsidising track sessions on Thursday evenings at the Osterley track for another three months. All groups and all abilities are welcome.

Details:. 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 email@example.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 playground and Pembroke Lodge. FACEBOOK Follow Ranelagh on Facebook.

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! 1 A Mungaldave (Orion) 2:17.43 (chip time 2:17.43) 97 F Mbuthuma (Nedbank) 3:00.55 (3:00.54 - 1st woman) 953 Lloyd Camp 4:13.17 (4:12.06) 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 Womens 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.

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 "
