RIVER THAMES HALF MARATHON Sunday 18th October Roy Reeder of Stragglers writes: "I'm once again organising the River Thames Half Marathon. The start is in Walton-on-Thames and a fair bit of the route is along the towpath, so it's flat, scenic and mostly traffic free. Full details here:. I'm offering £4 off the entry fee to Ranelagh Harriers runners till 18th July. Use the entry code ranh4off at the Sport Systems store." GREEN BELT RELAY - Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th May Roy Reeder again: "If you would like to be part of this event but aren't able to race 20 miles or thereabouts over two days you can be, as Stragglers are looking for helpers. This could be help with course marking on the Friday before or over the weekend, time-keeping or just doing some marshalling on leg 1 from Hampton Court Palace to Staines on Saturday morning or leg 22 from Walton Bridge to the Hawker Centre on Sunday afternoon. Contact Roy for more details, email@example.com It's a little known fact that ALL the surplus from the relay goes to charity! Last year's race raised £2500 for Princess Alice Hospice." FIXTURES SECRETARY Andy Woodhouse is standing down as Fixtures Secretary from next year. He will be doing the job for the 2015/16 winter season, but thereafter we will need a replacement. Essentially the job entails setting the dates for our winter fixtures. Some, like area championships and leagues, are fixed for us and we have to work our domestic fixtures - handicaps, mob matches etc - around them. If anyone is interested it would be a good idea for him or her to shadow Andy on this winter's fixtures.

STRAGGLERS JUNIOR HANDICAP SERIES The junior handicap series is held on Thursday evenings between April and August at the Hawker Centre off Lower Ham Road in Kingston. Remaining dates are as follows: Thursday 21st May - Registration 7 p.m. for 7.30 p.m. start Thursday 11th June - Registration 7 p.m. for 7.30 p.m. start Thursday 25th June - Registration 7 p.m. for 7.30 p.m. start Thursday 16th July - Registration 7 p.m. for 7.30 p.m. start Thursday 27th August - Registration 7 p.m. for 7.30 p.m. start Runners are allotted a start time depending on their previous performances, with the slower runners starting first. First time runners are given a handicap according to their age. The course is just over 2 km on the grass area in front of the Hawker Centre. It consists of four laps of the perimeter of the grass area, which will be marked out. After the end of the fourth lap the runners will cross the finish line and go down the finish funnel in the order in which they crossed the line. New or inexperienced runners, if they find 2 km a bit far, can run one lap - they will be given a time, but their results will not count towards any individual or team scores. Points are scored for your club according to finishing position and personal best times. First timers receive a medal for completing the course. In each race medals are awarded to the first boy and first girl (regardless of their overall place), and further medals are awarded to the 2nd and 3rd overall places (whether boys or girls). The overall trophy and shields for first, second and third places and the team trophy will be presented on the last Thursday of either September or October. We will announce the actual date as widely as possible. In order to take part in the junior handicap, entrants must have a consent and medical form signed by a parent or legal guardian. See Form:. Please pre-register with coaches Colin, Heather or Maia.

WHAT'S HAPPENED *************** THAMES TOWPATH 10 miles Sunday 19th April at Chiswick The opening event of our 2015 Summer Road Grand Prix attracted 28 runners from Ranelagh - not bad in the middle of Marathon season. Steve Whitehead was our top man, 4th in 58.49 and 2nd veteran over 40. Rick Jenner ran well for 11th place then came Bill Neely, just outside the prize list as 4th over 50. Stewart Anderson - like Bill, warming up for the following week's London - was also inside 70 minutes and Paul Rider was just outside. Then came several more in the 70 minutes bracket, followed by our leading woman on the day, Emma Wood, who recorded 85.08. Not far behind Emma were Carol Aikin and Sally Bamford. 1 M Taylor (Belgrave) 58.11 2 P Flewitt (Ealing S&M) 58.17 3 A Barnes (London Hth) 58.18 4 Steve Whitehead 58.49 11 Rick Jenner 61.33 39 O Balme (Dul R) 67.51 46 Bill Neely 68.22 57 Stewart Anderson 69.20 62 Paul Rider 70.07 78 Paul Gilbert 72.23 80 Lloyd Camp 72.52 81 Alberto Esguevillas 72.53 98 Paul Hodges 74.37 101 Stephen Aikin 75.03 116 Ian Keith 75.56 126 Amrut Sharma 76.43 129 Niall O'Connor 77.17 155 Simon Taylor 79.20 185 Phil Roberts 80.31 234 Peter Fordham 83.52 255 Emma Wood 85.08 264 James Barber 85.35 267 Tom Reay 85.51 274 Carol Aikin 86.24 285 Sally Bamford 87.43 333 Colette Doran 91.16 420 Lynne Barber 97.49 452 Peter Gatley 100.41 487 Alan Meaden 107.56 488 David Meaden 108.37 495 Katie Walton 109.55 500 Deborah Blakemore 111.14 LONDON MARATHON Sunday 26th April The warm weather that had been making us think that summer had arrived abated just in time for the race, but the cooler conditions were accompanied by heavy rain over the Saturday night. Fortunately the rain cleared up during the morning, leaving generally good conditions for both runners and spectators. A stellar line-up had been assembled for both men's and women's races. It was Kenyans who dominated the men's race, but the winner was to be neither the holder Wilson Kipsang nor the world record holder Dennis Kimetto. Instead, in a tight finish, it was a victory for the former track specialist Eliud Kipchoge in 2:04.42, just 13 seconds outside the course record. Just as for the men's race, the pace-makers were largely an irrelevance in the women's event. A relatively slow early pace guaranteed there would be no records but it was another fight to the finish with Ethiopia coming out on top in the shape of Tigist Tufa. She ran 2:23.22, 18 seconds clear of Kenya's Mary Keitany, who had run sub 2:20 in winning the 2011 and 2012 races. Of course, pace-makers or not, no-one was going to touch Paula Radcliffe's magnificent world record of 2:15.25 from the 2003 race. Paula herself enjoyed a valedictory "lap of honour" starting with the masses rather than the elite. She still ran a nifty 2:36 as the leading woman from the mass start. For Ranelagh the competition for the Winter Cup club marathon championship was expected to be a duel between George Howard and Carl Selya-Hammer, and so it proved. George made the faster start and passed 10km in 36.41 to Carl's 37.26. By half way, George's advantage had grown to 1.41 as he went through in 1:17.22 with Carl on 1:19.03. By 30k, passed by George in 1:50.31, the gap had grown to 2:13. However, George - head down and determined - was beginning to suffer and his next 10km took 38.45 to Carl's 38.11. George wasn't about to crumble, however, and at the finish he still had 1:23 in hand over his rival. Both ran inside 2:40, and I believe both times were PBs. Carl wrote: "That was beyond anything I could have hoped for, truly the greatest marathon in the world. 13 marathons in, I've finally learned to run a patient race so I felt strong until the very end." Third Ranelagh finisher was Kris Davidson who ran a very steady race with 5km splits varying by less than half a minute until slowing a little in the last few kilometres. His 2:43.59 was another PB, as was Duncan Mallison's 2:57.31. Duncan's was another well-judged run, grinding out the kms in metronomic fashion to duck inside 3 hours for the first time. Sub 3:10 were marathon debutant Peter Faull and Stewart Anderson, and sub 3:20 were Nick Wright and Bill Neely. Also sub-3:20 was Becky Hall who ran a big PB of about 3:15 to take our women's club championship for the Brasher Bowl. Unfortunately her chip malfunctioned and at the time of writing her exact time is still to be confirmed. from backup sources. Another with a duff chip was Bruce McLaren but his time has been sorted out as 3:23. A Ranelagh crowd came through at about 3:40, including Chris Hunton and his daughter Amelie. They had been on separate starts and resolved to run their own races, but found themselves together at 18 miles. So they ran the rest of the way together and finished hand in hand. Just behind was Wiebke Kortum, who was another to judge her run perfectly, hardly slowing at all to record a 3:40.34 PB. Karen Weir and Sean Paynter were next in, then Simon Martin who was one of the Runner's World pacers. 3:45 was his target, and he led his followers home with admirable precision in 3:44.29. Our last sub-4 hours finisher was Mike Peace, completing is 35th London Marathon as one of now just twelve ever-presents. Mike's fastest was 2:37.21 back in 1991, his slowest 3:57.27 when carrying an injury in 2007. Today he ran 3:50.38 and looks good for a few more years yet. Now 66, he's the second youngest of the "survivors". The remaining Ranelagh finishers, so far as we know, were all in the 4 hours bracket - Ian Grange, Jane Craigie-Payne, Lewis Emery, Leeanne Bryce, Karima Graham and Peter Gatley. Well done to all those who made it to the finish line, and if we have missed anyone please let us know. In the Mini-Marathon, Izzy Atkins and Sacha and Léonie Kennedy formed half of the winning Richmond team in the Boroughs Under 13 race, with Izzy in third place. Josie Kearey ran in the same race for Hounslow.

There were 65 runners in the main event, 21 of them representing Ranelagh. Those who have not run one of these races before are given a standard handicap based on their age, and as this was the first race of the season it was inevitable that there should be a lot of these first-timers. They dominated the front of the field, including Ranelagh's Oscar Stewart 4th, Isabelle Clarke 6th and Jonathan Read 8th. First-timers don't qualify for the "First Lad" and "First Gal" medals, and we had to go right down to 11th place for the First Lad. This was another Ranelagh, Nathaniel Bond. Another 14 finished before the official First Gal. The fastest boy was unattached Edward Andrews, but his 8.18 was only good for 62nd in the handicap. Several Ranelaghs were within half a minute or so of that time, including Noah Heron-Brett, Jonathan Read, Daniel Rushby, Jonny Brook and Luke Maguire, all well inside 9 minutes. Fastest girl was Stragglers' Maisie Jensen on 8.53 but this was only 9 seconds clear of Ranelagh's Frida Roper. Cara Hieker was also inside 10 minutes. In the Minis race, Ben Rushby finished 3rd and was "First Lad". Other first-timers included Molly Stewart, Connor Clarke, Afrah Sait and Francesca Baty-Symes, while old hands included Charlie Brook, Sam Rushby, Astrid Roper, Ciara McLaren, Oliver Beal, Matthew Beal and James Rushby. Every one of the youngsters ran well and - we hope - enjoyed themselves. The next event is on Thursday 21st May - see above for details. 1 A De Roserio (F Pen) 14.40 (actual time 9.40) 4 Oscar Stewart 15.32 (10.32) 6 Isabelle Clarke 15.50 (10.50) 8 Jonathan Read 16.35 (8.35) 9 M Jensen (Strag) 16.53 (8.53 - fastest girl) 11 Nathaniel Bond 17.05 (11.35 - first lad) 17 Molly Stewart 17.43 (12.43) 18 Cara Hieker 17.44 (9.44) 19 Connor Clarke 17.49 (9.49) 22 Afrah Sait 18.22 (13.22) 24 Francesca Baty-Symes 18.27 (10.27) 26 R Wiltshire (unatt) 18.37 (10.37 - 1st gal) 35 Charlie Brook 19.21 (9.51) 38 Frida Roper 19.32 (9.02) 39 Noah Heron-Brett 19.33 (8.33) 41 Daniel Rushby 19.38 (8.38) 43 Sam Rushby 19.43 (10.13) 47 Luke Maguire 19.52 (8.52) 49 Astrid Roper 19.59 (10.59) 50 Ciara McLaren 20.01 (11.01) 51 Oliver Beal 20.02 (10.32) 53 Jonny Brook 20.11 (8.41) 56 Matthew Beal 20.18 (9.48) 61 James Rushby 20.30 (9.30) 62 E Andrews (unatt) 20.48 (8.18 - fastest boy) Teams 1 Ranelagh H 41 2 Stragglers 26 3 Flaming Penguins 16 4= Sheen Shufflers 8 Kingston AC & Poly H 8 6 St Mary's Richmond AC 4 Minis 1 J Norman (Strags) 3.04 3 Ben Rushby 3.50 (1st lad) LAST FRIDAY OF THE MONTH 5km Friday 24th April in Hyde Park 1 T Aldred (Lon H) 15.17 8 J Williams (Annan V) 17.10 (1st woman) 10 Ian Kenton 17.23 84 Steve Aikin 20.45 102 Paul Hodges 21.28 177 Alan Davidson 23.57 193 Carol Aikin 24.52 SHAKESPEARE MARATHON Sunday 26th April at Stratford-upon-Avon While others were concentrating on that other race in London, Nick Twomey and Lloyd Camp were making their way up to the land of the Bard to tackle the Shakespeare Marathon.
