 NEXT JOB FOR THE MOB  Saturday 24th June at the Bushy Park parkrun
 Our annual "mini mob match" against the Stragglers will take place this year
 on Saturday 24th June, incorporated within the Bushy Park parkrun. Please
 note the date now, and opt for the Bushy Park parkrun that day rather than

 The Friends of Richmond Park have very recently launched a new film about
 the Park. It's presented and narrated by Sir David Attenborough. "Richmond
 Park is not just a local park it's London's own National Nature Reserve with
 thousands of species of flora and fauna," Sir David explains, "but with 5.5
 million visitors each year, the Park is under immense pressure. However, as
 visitors we can all help to protect it through simple actions so that it
 will remain a wonderful place for the enjoyment of future generations".
 There are two versions - a short 4min version and the full length film which
 is 21 minutes. Here's the link:. Incidentally, many Ranelagh
 members are also members of the Friends of Richmond Park. If you are
 interested in joining it's only a tenner per year. Go to:.

 TH&H PARKLAND RELAYS  Wednesday 14th June at 7pm in Richmond Park
 Peter Fordham writes:
 "I am again organising the men's entries for the annual Parkland Relays in
 Richmond Park. This is one of the best summer events in the area, where 100
 teams from the major clubs in the area compete in a 4 leg relay of about 2.9
 miles. It starts at Spankers Hill Wood and near to Pen Ponds car park. Last
 year we put up 3 teams, with our 'A' team coming a creditable 6th overall
 and our Vets 'A' Team 17th overall. Let's see if we can beat the turnout and
 positions this year. As demand from clubs is high, please let me know as
 soon as possible if you can run, so that I can secure team entries. If the
 7pm start puts you under too much pressure, it is possible to run one of the
 later legs. 
 A gathering for prizes, food and rehydration will be at the Telegraph Inn,
 Putney Heath. Please contact me at: peter_fordham@yahoo.com." For women's

 GREEN BELT RELAY  Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st May
 Ashleigh Ferris reports:
 "On the weekend of May 20th and 21st, 33 of Ranelagh's finest gathered at
 Hampton Court Palace for the 21st Green Belt Relay. Hosted by Stragglers,
 the event attracted 45 teams this year - which is the most teams they've
 ever had. For those not familiar with the race the Green Belt Relay is a 22
 stage, 220 mile relay which circumnavigates the M25 and is run in teams of
 11 with an overnight break in Essex. While this might conjure up images of
 miserable motorway running it is exactly the opposite - the route takes in
 some of the most beautiful landscapes and pretty towns in the area from
 Hampton Court to St Albans through Epping Forest and back by Box Hill
 finishing at the Hawker Centre.

 This year we fielded three Ranelagh teams - Women's, Men's and a Mixed Team.
 With 22 stages, 2 minibuses and 2 cars, 33 people, 6 marshal posts and food
 and accommodation this is a full on weekend with runners averaging 20 miles
 of running, but it is a really fun weekend and its appeal to runners of
 mixed pace adds to its charm. It was particularly great to welcome 11 new
 Ranelagh members to the GBR this year.

 Serpentine won overall, with second place going to Thames H&H. Serpies also
 won the women's team prize, with Thames H&H taking the mixed prize. London
 Front Runners won the Vets prize. For Ranelagh our Men's Team placed 5th,
 Ranelagh Women 35th (but 4th women's team) with the Mixed Team coming in
 33rd - an amazing result with great runs from all. Eirin McDaid came a
 close 2nd on his Saturday stage, before claiming a fantastic stage win on
 Leg 19 on Sunday despite a sore hamstring which forced him to stop almost
 within sight of the finish. Ted Mockett broke a course record on Leg 20 on
 Sunday, but sadly so did the Serpie who came in just ahead of him!

 The weekend itself was great fun. The buses were full of team spirit and,
 bar a short downpour on Saturday afternoon, the weather was mostly dry and
 warm. Everyone brings something to share for the buses so our running
 calories were replaced with homemade flapjacks from Simon and Ted, cakes
 from Becky and cookies from Sally amongst many other treats! On Saturday
 night we had a fantastic dinner in a pub near Stansted, before staying over
 in a local hotel. Despite the early start and tired legs on Sunday morning
 the morale was still high and we had some great performances on all the legs
 before the finishers' barbecue at the Hawker Centre.

 Special thanks to all who helped with the organisation - Dave Lawley was
 champion of the mini bus driving team with Phil Andrews, Mike Morris, Ted
 Mockett and Rachel Revett. Lee Davies, Kevin Kearey and Emma Welham were a
 fantastic help with driving and marshalling, as well as some non-Ranelagh
 volunteers who helped out at Chertsey Bridge water station on Saturday. Also
 a special mention has to go to Simon Martin who, after Lee was injured,
 stepped in to run an extra leg on Sunday totalling just under 30 miles for
 the weekend.

 We are already looking forward to next year and if anybody is interested or
 wants to know more about the event please contact us by emailing
 ranelaghgbr@gmail.com. The race attracts some really strong teams and we
 would love to field another three next year!"

 Jonathan Smith adds:
 "33 intrepid runners once again took on the epic which is the Green Belt
 Relay over a weekend which offered a mix of conditions but ultimately turned
 into glorious sunshine when it counted at the end of race BBQ. Special
 congratulations go to Eirin McDaid who managed to a secure a stage win
 against the backdrop of Box Hill. Having missed out on the win on the
 previous day by just a handful of seconds, the Dungannon Dasher put things
 right with a fantastic performance. Other notable moments from the weekend
 include one team accidentally driving to a hospital, Ted nearly directing
 Stephen Whitehead (who was running for Stock Exchange) in the wrong
 direction, Anna Scally's inspired decision to bring warpaint, Pete Faull's
 unacceptably small shorts, and Clare Fowler's epic sprint finish with
 60-something Barry Walters from British Airways AC.

 One thing which never fails to amaze is the fact that such a complicated
 event seems to go so smoothly. In that respect the teams owe a huge debt to
 Ashleigh Ferris and Leeanne Bryce who, in addition to dealing with all the
 usual admin and logistical considerations (and a new baby!), had to contend
 with several late injury problems and car issues. Their praises cannot be
 sung highly enough."

 NIGHT OF THE 10,000m PBs  Saturday 20th May at Parliament Hill track
 This event, though only in its fifth year, has become a highlight of the
 distance running year. Athletics Weekly's report begins: "Highgate Harriers
 know how to put on a show. A series of races over a mind-numbing 25 laps of
 the track can be potentially monotonous, but the North London club has
 turned its Night of the 10,000 PBs into a riveting festival of distance
 running and one of the most entertaining events of the year. As the beer
 flowed and the music boomed around the arena, an estimated 7,000 spectators
 piled into lane three of the track and the grassy bank of the home straight
 and the athletes responded to the adrenaline-fuelled atmosphere with some
 great performances despite chilly, windy weather."

 After some schools relays during the afternoon, the programme was five
 graded men's races and two women's. Incorporated were the trials for the
 British team for the World Championships, and also the British Universities
 Championships. There were about 30 runners in each race. Top quality runners
 such as Andy Vernon and Jo Pavey featured in the A races but there was class
 all the way down. Even the men's E race was won in a sub-32 minutes time,
 though - for anyone thinking of entering next year - the last finisher came
 in outside 36 minutes. In the women's B race, the last finishers were close
 to 42 minutes.        

 Only two Ranelagh Harriers featured this year, and of those Estelle Damant
 was running in Loughborough University colours in the BUCS championships.
 Estelle ran a steady race and finished 27th in the women's B race just
 inside 39 minutes. That left Richard Gregory's vest as the sole Ranelagh one
 on show, and he was seeded into the D race. Runners were invited to set a
 target time and Richard plumped for 31:59. There was a pacemaker for each
 race, but the pace was steady early on. Richard sat just behind the leaders
 for most of the first half but he was obviously feeling good and moved past
 the pacemaker with about ten laps to go. This galvanised the pack into
 action and the eventual winner Turner of Brighton took the lead and began to
 push the pace. Richard briefly lost contact with the leading group of five
 or so, but showed great strength in clawing his way back into contention. As
 he passed the bell it was touch and go whether he would crack the 32 minutes
 barrier but a great last lap carried him into third place in a PB 31:59.74.
 Mission accomplished!

 THE TRANSYLVANIA 100 Saturday 20th May
 From the race website: 
 "On May 20th, 2017, runners will again assemble on a start-line beneath
 Dracula's Castle in the village of Bran, ready for an adventure through the
 alpine-like scenery of rural Transylvania.   Twisting singletrack, ancient
 forest trails, mountain plateaus and windswept ridges will link together in
 grand, single-lap traverses of the Bucegi Range, climbing and descending
 many thousands of metres before finishing back at the Castle.   Entries are
 available to solo runners and teams-of-two in the 100k and 50k, solo in the
 30k and 20k, with prizes in all categories." 

 Mike White took the 30km option:
 "Well that's done. I've had a while to reflect on a race that I was so glad
 to finish in one piece. That first six miles was a very steep climb through
 beautiful woods and occasional grassy pasture where I met my future running
 buddy and saviour Rebecca...more of that later. At six miles I reached the
 top of the first mountain which was shrouded in cloud and I could barely see
 five yards. I had my first scary moment as I couldn't see markers but was
 helped on my way by a friendly Romanian. A difficult descent took me to the
 first check point. I could see the climb to the second peak which was
 covered in snow so I put on my jacket. What followed was the scariest 90
 minutes of my life as I climbed up a near vertical glacier by pulling myself
 up by rope. At this point with a half mile drop to the valley floor we were
 hit by thunder and lightning and a snow storm. The temperature dropped so
 quickly my fingers froze before I could get my gloves on. Amid the rocks
 bouncing down on us we reached the top. If I could have got off the mountain
 I would have quit there and then but the only way down was 12 km of forest
 trail so I had to go on. I had been following Rebecca up the glacier and we
 made a pact to stay together until the finish and I have never been so
 grateful to have the company of another soul. We didn't speak a great deal
 because of the terrain but she kept me going. A 4km crawl across snow and
 rocks followed where you had to literally slide and slip down. The second
 check point was reached with only one minor detour. 10km to go or so we
 thought. Torrential rain had accompanied us since the top of the second
 mountain so the forest trails we were travelling through were just mud
 slides. We were both counting the km to the finish. Unfortunately
 Transylvania had the last laugh as we did 34 km in the end in 8 hours 40. I
 have never been so pleased to finish a race. Would I do it again? Never.
 Would I recommend it to others? No. I have never felt so out of my depth in
 a race and wondered whether I should have been allowed to enter. The whole
 village was full of stories last night of the horrendous conditions and I do
 think the race should have been stopped at the first checkpoint. Although I
 will probably never see her again I will always remember Rebecca and our
 tearful cuddle at the finish line xxx."
 Mark Herbert went for the 50km:
 "Transylvania 50k, my first and certainly not my last Ultra. A good friend
 sold this race to me last year whilst in Marrakesh so booked it up I did.
 After showering, brekkie and short walk to the start the clock strikes 7am
 and a lively mix of nutters from all nationalities descend into the
 wilderness of Transylvania. Soon we hit the first climb on the outskirts of
 town and it's time to get the trekking poles out, a long slog which took
 close to 3 hours from the foot hills to snow capped mountains. It is
 relentless and keeps rising to a elevation of nearly 2500 metres from 750
 metres, my first taste of low clouds was all too evident but a sharp descent
 brought us back down to our first check point at Malaiesti. Five minutes to
 re-charge and then came the hardest, most treacherous part of the course up
 to the summit of Omu. Visibility quickly became reduced and whilst climbing
 the slope with my poles and a rope we can barely see 30-40 metres in front.
 Once at the summit after 4+ hours the descent is tricky with many runners
 getting lost before regaining the correct route. Having been slow on the
 uphill I was keen to make up for lost time and along with 4-5 other
 participants we speed through the next 12k stopping at various check points.
 Once at CP4 another climb proves difficult this time with a torrential
 downpour lasting over two hours. Finally at CP5 it's 12k to go and a short
 climb before the final descent that is extremely slippery and dangerous.
 Through the woodland you need to blow your whistle to warn any bears
 possibly wandering around of your presence, and with the last 5k bringing
 you home that's not flat but less challenging. Very relieved and happy to
 get back in one piece in a time of 9 hours 48 minutes."

 Heather Martingell, who ran the 20k with Fiona Pugh, adds: "Who needs
 Dracula when you've tackled a course like that!"

 Rick Jenner ran another solid sub-3 and was pursued by Gavin Jones, who
 travelled over from Italy for the race with a sub-3 in mind. Gavin writes:
 "Dipped under the 3 hours as desired and was first in the M55 age category.
 So a jolly happy bunny!"

 VITALITY LONDON 10km  Monday 29th May
 The course for this race starts on The Mall and finishes opposite Buckingham
 Palace, having taken in many of the major tourist spots en route. However,
 it's anything but just a sightseers' event. It's flat and fast and the
 incorporated UK championships ensure that it's a top quality race.  Jake
 Waldron ran in the low 32s in his Newham vest, but the first Ranelagh
 finisher home was Carl Assmundson who ran an excellent 33.43 but found it
 good enough only for 134th place. The other Carl - Selya-Hammer - was not
 far behind and then came Nick Impey, inside 35 minutes but outside the top
 200. James Winch and an injured Eirin McDaid followed on, and then came our
 leading woman Nic Jackson. Nic ran a PB 37.30 but - like the men's race -
 found the overall standard very high and finished "only" 35th. Perhaps the
 run of the day came from Laura Blazey who hacked a full minute off her
 previous best with 38.57. Estelle Damant was half a minute down on Laura but
 ensured us three women well inside 40 minutes. UK championship team results
 have yet to be published, but estimates put both our men's and women's teams
 around 10th or just outside.
