 ROTHWELL RELAY  Thursday 20th July at the Hawker Centre, Lower Ham Road
 Roy Reeder writes:
 "Nigel Rothwell was a regular local runner for many years and helped
 organise Richmond parkrun and then Kingston parkrun. Nigel devised and
 organised a relay event on a Stragglers' club night several years ago. He
 was present last year but passed away shortly afterwards. As well as lots of
 Stragglers, last year's event was attended by lots of Nigel's friends from
 26.2. This year it would be great to see anyone who knew Nigel from Ranelagh
 Harriers at the event too.
 Teams of four will be graded on the night to try to ensure balanced teams,
 so please have your recent parkrun time available. The course is 2.5km.
 Register from 7pm and the race starts as soon as everyone is registered
 (around 8pm).
 There will food and drink available to purchase afterwards at the Hawker
 Centre. Free race entry but donations accepted to Pancreatic Cancer UK."

 DORKING 10 miles  Sunday 4th June 
 There was only ever going to be one winner today. Belgrave's Phil Wicks was
 100 metres clear after the first mile and simply ploughed on at a relentless
 pace. The Dorking course boasts a tough last couple of miles but as Wicks
 strode into the field at the end he looked for all the world like he was
 enjoying a Sunday morning training spin. He had over three and a half
 minutes in hand. 

 As ever with the Dorking 10 it was a warm sunny day, though with a cooling
 wind on the more exposed sections of the course. As Wicks disappeared into
 the distance a small group formed to contest the minor placings and amongst
 them was Jake Waldron, running in Ranelagh colours on this occasion. Jake
 broke clear after half way but was being closed down again in the closing
 stages by Epsom's Ollie Garrod. There was only five seconds in it at the
 end, but Jake it was who held on for second place and the Surrey county
 championship silver medal. Phil Killingley made a cautious start then moved
 through the field before losing a few places in the closing stages. One of
 those who passed Phil was the in-form Nick Impey whose 56.31 in 9th place
 was a PB. Phil came home 15th and he, Jake, Nick and Ted Mockett finished
 second team in the open race. The county championship is only three to score
 so all but Ted won team silvers. Ted and Ian Kenton were inside 59 minutes,
 with Seiko Angelo (an age-graded PB), Jonathan Smith and Steve Whitehead all
 within a minute of the hour barrier. Seiko was beaten into second place in
 the Over 50 category by a matter of a few seconds and added to our county
 silver tally. We had five more men home inside 70 minutes before our leading
 woman Suzy Whatmough who recorded 71.48. Marie Synnott-Wells and Wiebke
 Kortum followed, while also inside 80 minutes was Julia Bailey. Suzy, Marie
 and Wiebke won bronze medals in the county team championship.      

 Richmond Park
 Ranelagh were the team winners in the first event in this series of six, but
 this time they couldn't hold off the challenge of the title holders the
 Flaming Penguins. James Ricketts was the first Ranelagh finisher in third
 place but as he was a first-timer he did not score highly. Alfie Lafeuille
 was our best scorer as 2nd boy in 7th place overall. Unfortunately fast
 times count for nowt in this event, so although Ranelagh's Tom Armstrong and
 Harriet Wiltshire set the two fastest times of the day they were well down
 in the handicap. Tom's 7.08 was more than a minute up on the second fastest
 boy while Harriet's 8.03 beat all the boys bar Tom, let alone the girls! We
 had thirteen runners, as ever with a large contingent from the Rushby

 LONDON TO CARDIFF 24 HOURS RELAY  Friday 9th June - Saturday 10th June
 Jonathan Smith reports:
 "The London to Cardiff 24 Hour relay race may not be top of everyone's
 bucket list, and indeed many of you may never have heard of it. The race,
 now in its 7th year, sees teams of between 8 and 12 runners attempt to run
 from London to Cardiff in under 24 hours through a combination of individual
 and team relay stages. Ranelagh's very own boy band look-a-like, Rich
 Kimber, had previously entered the event several times and this year decided
 to see if he could enlist some of his teammates from the Ranelagh Advanced
 Group. To add incentive Rich pointed out that not only was the event
 winnable, there was also a reasonable chance of breaking the course record,
 which stood at 19 hours and 51 minutes and was supposedly held by a team of
 GB university triathletes.

 Whilst the event seemingly didn't hold much appeal for the true Ranelagh
 elites who churn out race wins for fun, a reliable core of self-described 'B
 team' runners inevitably saw this as an opportunity to engage in a bit of
 good old fashioned pot-collecting. And so the Ranelagh Regulars team was
 born. With only 8 members making for a team which was light on numbers, a
 9th was added in the form of Beckenham RC runner Ross Brown to help spread
 the workload.

 The race kicked off on Friday evening with glorious sunshine in the grounds
 of Kneller Hall in Twickenham. Such was the disparity in expected finish
 times, the first team had already departed at 1pm, with the Ranelagh
 Regulars setting off last, some six hours and 41 teams later. With dramatic
 X-factor style music geeing up a crowd of about two people and a dog, the
 race director took us to one side:

 'Gents, just so you know, we think you can go for the record.'

 Naturally we did our best to look surprised.

 But whilst the organisers seemed confident, there were plenty of reasons for
 caution. For starters this race was going to involve a lot of navigation,
 and much of it in the dark. And whilst Ranelagh's very own anti-compass,
 Nick Impey, had been left at home, the Green Belt Relay had already
 highlighted that half the team were 'navigationally challenged'. On top of
 that the team were heavily reliant on traffic, and it was also difficult to
 see how we were going to catch up with the first team off who, by this
 point, were as far away as Henley on Thames.

 To monitor the team's progress the runner had to carry a GPS tracker at all
 times, and use this to generate a code at every checkpoint. After a pretty
 rubbish dummy run, we were off. The first team stage was an arduous 0.2 mile
 leg around a field, complicated by Nick Twomey being absolutely terrified of
 the spectating dog. The first individual leg was then taken on by Jonathan
 Smith, who ran from Twickenham to Brentford via Twickenham Bridge and the
 towpath. In fact so familiar was this first leg that he had been threatened
 with death by several team members if he managed to mess it up. Thankfully
 he didn't. James Whistler took the baton on Stage 2 to Southall, followed by
 Rick Jenner and then Rich who got the team to Slough and then Taplow. By
 this point we had already started to catch and overtake teams ahead of us,
 although our tracker had already stopped working and put us much further
 back in the field.

 With the teams split into two groups to allow everyone to get a couple of
 hours sleep at various points, Rick, Jonathan and James headed to the
 halfway team stage to get some rest, whilst Rich handed over to Nick, who
 along with Mark Herbert, Dave Lawley, Mike Morris, Ross (and Rich again)
 guided the team through Peppard, Goring and along the Ridgeway. Around 3am
 the team reached the half-way point, Nick powering into the finish just as
 dawn started to break. This led straight into the second team stage, which
 was meant to be a 1.9 mile jaunt around Coate Water Park. It was during this
 run that the team found itself gaining in confidence as it breezed past
 rival runners. That confidence was to be misplaced however, as a wrong turn
 resulted in us veering away from the route and almost hitting the M4 before
 the error was realised. Nick was furious.

 But there was no time for recriminations. The mini-bus headed on to let the
 later runners get some rest. In the meantime Jonathan took the team to
 Swindon, Rich (now into his third leg) carried on to Royal Wooton Bassett
 and James pounded into the beautiful town of Malmesbury. And on and on it
 went. Dave taking on a nine miler to Didmarton, Ross setting an incredible
 time for a 12.4 miler to Thornbury, and Mark navigating several cows to get
 us to the Severn estuary.

 With James having the unusual pleasure of running over the Severn Bridge at
 around 8am in the morning, the team finally made it into Wales and had the
 finish line in their sights. By this point they were 4th (helped by one team
 taking an unfortunate detour towards Chester and with the leading team just
 15 minutes down the road). Rick powered past a couple more teams on Stage 19
 to Caldicot Castle, and by the time Jonathan hit the Magor finish line on
 Stage 20 the leaders had seemingly gone off course, putting us into the lead
 on the road as well as on the timesheets.  

 It was at this point that the Race Director's suggestion that we go for a
 course record started to come back to bite him. As he struggled to stay
 ahead of us and set up the new checkpoints, Nick finished Stage 21 in
 Newport only minutes after he had got there. But there was still time for
 things to go wrong. Mike successfully navigated a tricky Stage 22 to St
 Mellons and handed over to Mark who, having taken on the Transylvania 50k
 only a couple of weeks before, was understandably starting to feel it in the
 legs. Step forward team captain Rich to accompany him on the Stage to
 Tremorfa and take on his 4th of the day. The two powered each other on and
 handed over to Rick to bring the team into Cardiff.

 With the final individual stage being only 3 miles, it was now a race
 against time to get to the finish in Sophia Gardens before Rick did. This
 was duly achieved, only to find that again we had caught the organisers
 napping, with the inflatable finish line barely erected and the final
 checkpoint nowhere in sight. Again with minutes to spare both were in place.
 Rick duly arrived, the team set off on their final 0.2 mile team stage
 victory lap, and crossed the finish line to the roaring cheers of
 approximately 4 spectators (thankfully the numbers swelled as more and more
 teams came in). 

 The result spoke for itself. The team was the fastest on paper in a time of
 18 hours 46 minutes, beat the next team by over 2 hours, overtook every
 other team out on course, and smashed the previous course record by an hour
 and five minutes. With the sun even briefly coming out, the only thing that
 remained was to sit down with several well earned beers and watch the other
 teams arrive, before being presented with the winning shield. Although a
 night of celebration had been planned, a combination of sleep deprivation,
 lack of proper food and rehydrating from around 1pm solely through alcohol,
 meant that everyone was pretty much in bed by 10pm.

 MAN v HORSE 22 miles  Saturday 10th June at Llanwrtyd Wells
 Amrut Sharma reports:
 "The idea for the Man v Horse  annual race was born from a bet in the back
 room of the Neaudd Arms in 1980 after an argument over whether a man could
 ever beat a horse in a long-distance race. In 37 years of the Whole Earth
 Man v Horse race, only two runners have ever emerged victorious - Huw Lobb
 in 2004 and Florian Holginger in 2007.

 This year's entry had about 600 runners (including a relay team from
 Ranelagh Harriers of Amrut, Deepa & Claire ) competing against 60 horses.
 Unfortunately, on the race day Deepa was on a work visit to Zambia and
 Claire also pulled out leaving me with three race numbers and three coupons
 for the pasta party - arranged for the runners at Neaudd Arms before the
 race day. I made full use of all the three coupons which apparently meant I
 had to complete the whole race by myself ! Luckily, the next morning ,
 organisers managed to find another relay team with a missing runner and we
 formed a new team and completed the 22 miles in a time of 4 hours and 26
 minutes. I did the first leg of approx. 8 miles and found the course
 conditions extremely hilly, muddy and windy. The only small consolation was
 that by the time I finished, I found a couple of horses behind me (probably
 tail running horses?) although most of them had already overtaken me in the
 first mile. Horse Rheidol Petra, ridden by Iola Evans, won the event in two
 hours and 30 minutes. The first runner, Owen Beilby, finished the course 27
 minutes later."

 There's no definitive list of all the men who have run a mile in sub-4
 minutes, but the figure is believed to have reached 1,500 at least. Would
 Sir Roger Bannister have been surprised at this? Probably not, but he might
 have raised an eyebrow at one of the recent additions to the list, Norwegian
 Jakob Ingebrigtsen. Competing in the mile race in the Prefontaine Classic
 meeting in Eugene, Oregon, Jakob recorded 3:58.07...at the age of 16!
