MINI MOB MATCH Saturday 13th June at the Kingston parkrun Our annual parkrun mini mob match against the Stragglers will take place on Saturday 13th June. It's Stragglers' turn to be "at home" and they have chosen the Kingston parkrun, which starts and finishes on the towpath close to the Hawker Centre. As always with mob matches, the more runners we have the better our chances of success. So if you're running a parkrun that day, make it Kingston. And if your parkrun registration doesn't currently list you as Ranelagh, please update it! See below. parkrun REGISTRATION If your parkrun registration doesn't already show you as a member of Ranelagh Harriers, please take a moment to update it. This will ensure your performances are picked up in the e-news and also that you will count for Ranelagh if you run in the mini mob match mentioned above.

Gill tweeted: "Very happy to take my fourth African Tri Champs title in a row in a very steamy Egypt yesterday". CONGRATULATIONS... ...to Becky Hall and Rob Curtis who have become engaged. 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. Contact Hon Sec Wyn Williams. email@example.com EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGY STUDY Ben Williams from St Mary's University writes: "I am one of the Exercise Physiologists at St Mary's and I was wondering if any of your members is interested in the following study. The study design is as follows: There are a total of 9 trials all on-site at St Mary's University. Trial one will last approximately 60 minutes and will involve assessment of body mass, stature and VO2max. Trial two, three and nine will last approximately 45 minutes and involve a 5 minute warm up followed by a time-to-exhaustion at 80% VO2max at an altitude of 2500 m. Trials four to eight will involve receiving one of two vascular occlusion protocols for five consecutive days, each session lasting no longer than 45 minutes. The session will involve pressure cuffs being inflated around both thighs (at rest) for 5 minutes and then deflated for 5 minutes. This procedure will be repeated four times in total on each day. Upon completion of the study, subjects will receive the results from a number of physiological tests including (body mass, stature, blood pressure, body fat %, heart rate training zones and VO2max). In addition, I am happy to discuss potential ways to enhance training and performance i.e. (recovery, fuelling and hydration) with anybody who takes part. To take part subjects must be male and aged between 18-45. If you'd like to take part or have any questions please let me know, my email address is as follows: Benjamin.firstname.lastname@example.org." ALEX HALTER Those members who took part in our regular visits to the Netherlands in the 1980s - including the infamous 4-man 100km relay - will be sorry to hear of the recent death from cancer of our principal host on those occasions Alex Halter. Alex was a useful runner, highly regarded as a coach with various clubs in the Rotterdam area and, taking advantage of his gift with languages, often acted as courier on marathon tours from the Netherlands. He was just short of his 69th birthday. FACEBOOK Follow Ranelagh on Facebook. RANELAGH JUNIORS Check out what's happening in our junior section here:. 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:. Please pre-register with coaches Colin, Heather or Maia.

WHAT'S HAPPENED ****************** RANELAGH RICHMOND HALF MARATHON Sunday 3rd May We're pleased to report another successful promotion, and our thanks go to the dozens of members and friends who helped in any capacity on the day, but particularly to Race Director Sandra Forrest and her organising team for another highly professional job. A Facebook comment sums it up: "Thanks so much for a brilliant half marathon today. The marshals were really fantastic and it's hugely appreciated given the rainy weather." It had been wet overnight but by the time the race started there was just a little dampness blowing in the wind. Conditions were really pretty good for the runners, if less so for the marshals and officials. The course was the same as usual, with just a slight change to the final half mile, where runners were taken onto the grass in order to keep Riverside Drive clear. Some 730 runners were set off at 8.30am sharp and Newham and Essex Beagles' Jake Waldron lost no time in stamping his authority on the race. He was away on his own before the first mile had been completed and went on to win by a comfortable minute and a half from a trio of Hercules Wimbledon runners. Jake is not a Surrey-qualified runner so the county championship went to second-placed Dimos Evangelidis. Ranelagh's leading finisher was Jordan Mungovan in 7th place with a PB of 76.47. Phil Killingley, Steve Whitehead and Ian Kenton (another PB) followed in close order. Nick Twomey was not far behind approaching the run-in, but Nick looked very tired and Ted Mockett - yet another PB - swept past to be our fifth man home in 13th place. In truth Nick had every excuse for looking tired as he had run a hard Marathon only seven days before - as indeed had Kris Davidson who nevertheless found enough in his legs to run a sub-80 PB. Nick and Kris were not the only ones to display rapid powers of recovery - Stewart Anderson and Simon Martin had also run the London and heroically turned out again today. Steve Whitehead was second over 40 in the open race, but took the gold medal in the M40 county championship. Kris Davidson and Paul Doyle both made the top ten over 40s, while Richard Holme was 7th in the over 50 class. Cecilia Siruffo of Guildford and Godalming was the winner of the women's race, ahead of her clubmate Jennifer Steedman. Ranelagh's leading pair ran together all the way, but at the finish the unrelenting chip recorded Gemma Cory an inch or two ahead of Julia Bailey. Louise Piears was our third finisher just a few metres clear of Mel Davison. Jackie Dunkley and Bronwen Northmore both made the top twenty in the over 55 category. Not surprisingly it was Hercules Wimbledon who took the men's team awards, but Ranelagh placed a good second. In the women's race Stragglers won the open team awards while Clapham won the county championship. Photos: SUTTON 10km Sunday 10th May The Sutton 10km, coming as it does just one week after our Half Marathon, does not usually figure very highly in our list of priority races, despite the fact that it forms part of the Surrey Road League and our own Grand Prix. Both competitions allow you to drop your two worst scores, and Sutton is most often one of those. Not so this year, however. Our turnout wasn't huge at about a couple of dozen, but it made its presence felt. Best performance of the day must have been Megan de Silva's win in the women's section. Her time of 38.59, only about half a minute outside her PB, brought her home almost a minute clear of her nearest rival for a most convincing victory. Marie Synnott-Wells was unaccustomedly beaten into second place in the W45 category but she, Megan and Becky Hall combined to take the first team prizes. Not to be outdone, our men also filled the top spot in the team race. Their event was four to score and the liquid spoils went to Ted Mockett, Steve Whitehead, Kris Davidson and James Whistler. In what looks to have been a spectacularly tight finish Ted took 7th place and in the process ducked inside 36 minutes for the first time. Hot on Ted's heels in 9th place was Steve Whitehead who was also the second over 40 home. Kris and James finished in the mid-37s while Jonathan Smith, Mark Herbert and Dave Lawley were in the low 38s. LONDON MARATHON Sunday 26th April The result for our first woman finisher Becky Hall has still not been sorted out properly. Becky's chip malfunctioned and initially no result was shown for her. Now she has been credited with 3:05.44. Becky must be very tempted to settle for that, but the truth is that she timed herself at 3:15.27. Until we hear different, that's the time we will use for the Ranelagh records. We have also discovered a few more Ranelagh juniors in the Boroughs mini-marathon, as follows:. Under 13s 170 Poppy Jensen (King) 23:07 Under 17s 73 Jessica Harbert (Eal) 21:44 100 Ellie Luxmoore (Eal) 22:39 BRITISH UNIVERSITIES and COLLEGES SPORTS TRACK CHAMPIONSHIPS Sunday 3rd May at Bedford Estelle Damant, representing Loughborough Students, had an excellent run to win the bronze medal in the 10,000m. 1 E Davies (Bath U) 36.22.01 3 Estelle Damant 36.37.03 SELF TRANSCENDENCE 10km Saturday 2nd May in Battersea Park Pete Warren, now 75, ran a nifty 51.46 but found it good enough only for second in the M70 category. 1 D Bentley (Beck) 33.13 16 S Pemberton (Strag) 37.06 (1st woman) 106 Pete Warren 51.46 THREE FORTS CHALLENGE HALF MARATHON Sunday 3rd May on the South Downs 1 T Stedman (Wharf) 1:26.47 13 E Hutchins (Arena 80) 1:38.38 (1st woman) 204 Marina Quayle 2:19.37 KINGFIELD CANTER 2.85 miles HANDICAP Wednesday 6th May at Woking 1 G Gibbons (Brack F) 25.11 (actual time 22.11) 5 Steve Rowland 26.34 (24.49) 7 Sonia Rowland 27.04 (21.34) WIMBLEDON COMMON TRAIL SERIES - RACE 1 5 miles Wednesday 6th May This was the first of a series of three Wednesday evening trail races on Wimbledon Common organised by Andy Bickerstaff and Good Run Guide. A couple of days before the race Andy had e-mailed final instructions to all competitors saying that the course was mainly dry - perhaps just a little mud at the infamous Butts. A couple of days of heavy showers effectively changed that and it was a typically wet common that greeted the 116 starters. There were still a few spots of rain blowing about as the race started but they soon disappeared leaving pretty good running conditions. Clapham Chasers were out in some strength and they provided the individual winner in Max Lovell. Al Morgan and Mark Herbert were Ranelagh's first two home in 8th and 9th places. Ranelagh's women flew the flag successfully, led by Megan de Silva who won two of these events last year (and ran off course in the third). Megan was the clear winner today by over two minutes. Marie Synnott-Wells tracked Megan for as long as she could before settling for second place overall and first over 45. Wiebke Kortum was second over 45 and Megan, Marie and Wiebke won the women's team prizes. Clapham were first men's team, followed by Ranelagh in second place. Trevor Maguire, nursing a knee injury, was the second over 50 home while Bruce McLaren and Peter Fordham were 3rd over 40 and 3rd over 60 respectively.
