 We urgently need to find someone to help Tamsin Burland with the job of
 Volunteers Co-ordinator for our Ranelagh Richmond Half Marathon on Sunday
 30th April. There must be somebody out there! If you can help, contact
 Tamsin ranelaghhalfhelpers@hotmail.co.uk .    

 The final men's and women's Surrey League races will be this Saturday 11th
 February at Old Coulsdon, Happy Valley (women) and Wimbledon Common (men).
 Start times will be back to normal at 12 noon for the women (followed by
 U15s and U17s at 1pm and U13s at 1.30pm) and 3pm for the men (preceded at
 2.30pm by all juniors). Note that the women will have a different start and
 finish point from the usual. It's about 2.5 miles from the South London
 Harriers clubhouse, so there's no need to go there except for changing and
 toilets.  Details and maps:.
 There is plenty to run for - after three races our women are in 7th place
 but close behind two other clubs, while our men are in a tight tussle with
 SLH and Hercules Wimbledon for 2nd, 3rd and 4th places. If we can snatch
 second place it would be our best ever men's League finishing position.
 Details and maps for the men's race:. 

 Our last mob match this season is away to Blackheath and Bromley HAC on
 their 7.5 miles true country course at Hayes, Kent. At their request it's a
 SUNDAY MORNING race starting at 11am on February 19th. It's multi-terrain
 with a few sections of road near the end, so trail shoes are preferable to
 spikes. If we can defeat the 'heathens, this will be our fifteenth mob match
 win in a row. As ever, we need all the runners we can get. When we last
 visited Hayes two years ago both clubs fielded about 60 runners. We need
 that many again, and more if we manage it. Unfortunately train services to
 Hayes will be replaced by buses on that Sunday, so travelling by rail will
 not be a viable option. We are setting up a car pooling scheme, look for it
 on Facebook. Here's a map showing the location of the B&B HQ at the Sydney
 Wooderson Centre in Bourne Way, Hayes (Kent)  here:. There's plenty of parking in
 nearby roads. Note it's a ten minutes jog from the HQ to the start, which is
 off Addington Road, here:.
 If you are arriving late there is limited parking at the start, but you'll need
 to jog back there after the race (or get someone to take you) because the
 finish is back near the clubhouse.  

 Our Trophies Steward Heather Martingell would like to collect up all the
 club trophies well in advance of our Prize Presentation evening on April
 1st. This is to allow time not only to get them all engraved with the names
 of their new owners, but this year we also want to have them re-valued. If
 you are a trophy holder please contact Heather hmartingell@gmail.com 
 regarding returning it. Items can be left in the safe
 at the clubhouse but please let Heather know if you do this.  

 ELLIS CUP and DYSART CUP inter-club races  Saturday March 4th in Richmond
 The Ellis Cup is a men's team race and the Dysart Cup is a women's. Both run
 together over our men's two-lap league course of 5.5 miles in the Park.
 Start time is 3pm and all are welcome, register on the day. It's also our
 club junior championships over one lap of 2.75 miles.   

 Our annual schools race is one lap of our mob match course. Our chief
 official Andy Bickerstaff will be away on holiday but we have a replacement
 to flag the course in the person of Louise Piears. However, we do need
 plenty of marshals to ensure that the schoolboys and girls stay on course.
 Please contact Andy andy.bickerstaff@goodrunguide.co.uk  as soon as
 possible if you can help.

 FINCHLEY 20 miles ROAD RACE  Sunday March 12th at Ruislip

 "Junior Records Update: To ensure our information about our juniors is up to
 date, and to help with pre-race registration for some junior races, our
 Junior Team Manager (Trevor Maguire on trevor.maguire@bt.com) is about to
 ask for some information by email/leaflet.  Please look out for this email
 in the next week or so and reply directly to Trevor.  Many thanks in advance
 for your help."

 Our own junior championships will take place on Saturday 4th March in
 Richmond Park. The Lotinga Cup will go to the overall winner and the Camilla
 Cup will go to the first female. They will be incorporated with the
 inter-club races for the Ellis and Dysart Cups and start time is 3pm.
 Juniors (under 20s) will probably start with the senior race, but will run
 only one lap of 2.75 miles. The seniors will go on for a second lap. All
 welcome, register on the day. It is hoped to include a sealed handicap in
 the junior race.

 21st January in Richmond Park (Roehampton Gate)
 Dave Lawley reports:
 "To say this is a low key event is an understatement but don't let that ever
 put you off running this cracking run. It's low key in the sense no one
 really knows what is going on, where it starts, where to run and who is
 going to turn up. The older gentleman giving course, turn-by-turn
 instructions at the start was a particularly amusing highlight. That said
 from all corners of a beautifully, wintry, sun-drenched Richmond Park 23
 Ranelaghs found the start. It's a cracking run because it winds round the
 park on a different, yet challenging, course to what we're used to. So long
 as you follow the numerous yellow flags you can't go wrong.
 Now about those yellow flags... yet again it is saddening to report that
 someone / something decided to uproot some flags in a critical part of the
 course near Pen Ponds. Yours truly here discovered this, whilst in second
 place with Al Whatmough breathing down my neck, as for the first time during
 the race I could see the outstanding Ben Anderson (who led by miles
 throughout) running in circles, arms flailing and looking confused. He'd
 gone left and followed the flags but this should have been straight on. Not
 that we were to know this. Shortly the leading pack had grouped and were all
 running round like headless chickens until we spotted three Milocarians
 sneak through on what looked like the right course. A mad dash through some
 woods then put us back on course and shortly after was a marshal adorned in
 flags showing the correct route. We (politely as possible!) told him about
 the sabotage but by the sounds of it he didn't think to move from his flag
 station as annoyingly several other groups of runners went wrong too. 

 So back to the race and the impact this had. The outstanding Ben Anderson
 amazingly managed to pick off the three sneaky Milocarians for a superb win,
 quite how he did this I don't know as he had it all to do with 1.5miles to
 go. Yours truly (angry at this point) managed to pick one off for a fourth
 place finish shortly followed by Al Whatmough in 6th. So instead of a
 Ranelagh 1,2,3 we managed 1,4,6. That's XC racing I guess and as the wise
 Yoda suggests: lessons learnt 'course you must know, angry more often, get'.

 It was inconsequential in the end as the 23 put in a great performance to
 snatch the win with Milocarians in 2nd and Hercules Wimbledon taking 3rd. We
 also won the Hec Petersen Trophy between ourselves and Ealing.  The 8 to
 score consisted of: Ben Anderson, me, Al Whatmough, Mark Herbert getting
 back fit after injury (but had his works night out the night before so ran a
 little sideways), John Shaw who flew in at the finish, Bruce McLaren (who
 also went on the detour), junior Jonny Brook, and Richard Gurd. The
 remaining ran strongly occupying many of the subsequent positions and the
 Hillhouse family having a family run out with Lloyd Camp."

 Organiser Gwyn Jones of the Bank adds: "Apologies to some of your runners
 who got sent the wrong way near the ponds, apparently some clowns had
 rearranged some flags just before the first runners reached them."  

 Parliament Hill
 Parliament Hill is an iconic venue for major cross-country championships,
 offering fantastic views over London and a testing spectator-friendly
 course. For "testing" read "hilly and muddy", although the course is rarely
 exactly the same two years in a row as different sections of the Heath are
 taped off for conservation purposes. The senior men's race is traditionally
 over a three-lap 9 miles, while the women are asked to cover 5 miles.
 Traditional too are the junior races which take place prior to the senior
 events and usually serve to churn up the course into suitably "soft" going
 for the seniors. Well, the juniors did their best on a mild and sunny
 afternoon but surprisingly it never got really muddy this year. Mind you,
 there were sticky patches here and there and at least one or two runners
 went down headfirst into the infamous ditch. There were record fields
 totalling about 1,600 runners in the senior men's and women's races. The 
 men's race invoked a cut-off time of 90 minutes and there were plenty of
 runners who didn't make the cut. An estimated 500 men were lapped by the
 leaders, making life difficult on the narrower sections of the course.  

 Juniors first, then. Izzy Atkins put in a great run to finish 18th in the
 U15 Girls race, while brother Greg was a strong 52nd in the U17 Men. Euan
 and Finlay Sinclair both ran well in the U13 Boys to finish 99th and 272nd. 

 On to the Senior Women, and the headlines came from Nic Jackson in her first
 Southern. From the start Nic fearlessly tucked in just behind the leading
 group. Gaps inevitably lengthened but Nic maintained her position. She
 probably didn't know it, but in the later stages she was hanging on to a
 place just inside the top 25 - the club honours qualification. A pack of
 five runners was hot on her heels down the finishing straight but Nic held
 them off to finish an outstanding 23rd, and hers will be the next name to be
 added to the honours board. Congratulations Nic! Behind her, Laura Blazey
 and Suzy Whatmough resumed their rivalry, Laura getting away a little in the
 closing stages to finish 71st, with Suzy also well inside the top 100. The
 scoring team of four was completed by Julia Bailey in 144th place not far
 ahead of Becky Northmore. The final team position was a highly respectable
 12th out of 63. It was good to see 14 Ranelagh runners taking part.       

 That Ranelagh representation was exactly duplicated in the senior men's
 race. Richard Gregory set out with top 50 intent but slipped back a few
 places as the first lap progressed. He wasn't going to slip any further,
 however, and remained about 60th for the rest of the race. But if he thought
 he was safe as Ranelagh's leading man he was mistaken. After a steady start
 Carl Assmundson was steadily picking his way through the field and by half
 way round the last lap he was on Richard's shoulder and then just a few
 metres ahead. Richard rallied and the pair raced it out along the home
 straight before Richard crossed the line two places and two seconds ahead of
 Carl in 61st position. There was a similar scenario between our next two
 finishers, Peter Haarer and Steve Whitehead. In a duel of the vets Steve
 gradually caught Peter, only to be thwarted at the death by a matter of two
 seconds. Completing the scoring team of six were the two Davids, Lawley and
 Ready, excellent runs both. The team placed a solid 19th out of 69 who
 closed in. Second claimers Jon Pepper and Jake Waldron both put in fine
 efforts for 13th and 42nd places.

 BOX HILL FELL RACE  Saturday 21st January at Dorking
 Race organiser Andy Robinson writes:
 "At the front end it was a welcome return to the race after a few years
 absence for James McMullan of Thames Hare and Hounds. James was the record
 holder on the old (pre-2015) course, and so a new record looked to be on the
 cards. However a fall when jumping a fallen tree 2 miles from the end forced
 James to slow down and miss the record by 16 seconds. He said 'I just jogged
 in after that', which can be translated for the rest of us as 'I just
 retained my 3 minute lead'..
 No such problem for the first lady. Nichola Jackson of Ranelagh Harriers
 stormed round to beat both 2nd place and the previous record by over 5
 minutes. It's difficult to compare the new course with the old one, but I
 think her time would have put her close behind the great names of Sarah
 Rowell, Angela Carson and Yvette Hague who were the fastest then, but all
 from the last century."

 From Athletics International:
 One record that may never be beaten is that by Ron Hill, who trained every
 day (and twice a day for many years) from 20 December 1964 to his decision
 to have a break due to chest pains and a possible heart problem at the end
 of January 2017. His meticulous training diaries give every detail of 52
 years and 39 days of running and he passed 151,000 miles by his 70th
 birthday in 2008, when he completed his ambition of racing in 100 countries
 and ended the record with over 160,000 miles. The European champion of 1969
 and Commonwealth champion of 1970 (in his best time of 2:09:28) finished 115
 marathons, all but the last (the 100th Boston marathon of 1996) under 2:52.
