COAD CUP summer 5 miles handicap Tuesday 11th July in Richmond Park starting at 7.15pm This is our annual summer cross-country handicap in Richmond Park. For those unfamiliar with handicaps, take a look at our website here:. That also shows a course map, and it's as well to familiarise yourself with the route. All members are welcome to take part and there's no entry fee. However, please help us out in two ways: first, please arrive earlier than your normal Tuesday time if at all possible. If you all arrive at once there will be a queue for registration and we'll be late getting the race underway. Secondly, if you're a new member or haven't raced in a club event, please contact our hard-working handicapper Angus Cater to give him some idea of what time you take for a parkrun or a 10k or similar. This will allow him to assign you a handicap in advance rather than trying to work it out on the evening of the race. This doesn't commit you to running! Contact Angus firstname.lastname@example.org . 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.

Our Australian readers like to scoff at us feeble Poms when we complain of racing in hot weather. But surely this time we were justified, as thermometers reached the mid-30s on a course which offered little enough shade. It was too much for some: twenty or more headed for home after one lap and the first aid people were kept busy as runners wobbled through the finishing funnel. Happily there was no lasting damage. After some re-hydration and a lie-down in the shade everyone was fit to get home under their own steam - if that's the right word to use.. Given the conditions, times were quite reasonable, though winner Phil Wicks took almost a minute longer this year than he had in taking the title last year. Wisely no-one tried to go with him, and just like in the Dorking 10m a couple of weeks ago we soon had two races - Wicks in one and the rest in another. Kent veteran Chris Greenwood at least kept Wicks in sight and was a clear second while Ranelagh's Jake Waldron was third. Jake was one of those who needed some attention at the finish but he soon recovered. As Greenwood is not Surrey-qualified Jake took the silver medal in the county championship which as usual was incorporated into this race. There was another county silver for Jake in the team competition where he, Nick Impey and Ian Kenton finished as runners-up to Reigate Priory. Remarkably, Nick's 34.11 in 8th place was a new PB. In the open team race (i.e. including non-Surrey athletes) it was Carl Selya-Hammer who joined Jake and Nick in taking the second prize wine. Ted Mockett was our next man in after Ian, and he was chased home by Steve Whitehead who placed 8th in the M40 category. James Winch and Richard Kimber finished in the 37s and another eight RH made it home inside 40 minutes. The women's race was even more clear-cut than the men's. 18 year-old waif-like Hannah Irwin representing Guildford recorded an impressive 35.47, over a minute clear of Epsom and Ewell's Isabel Brinsden. Laura Blazey was our first finisher in 13th place and she was followed by the very inexperienced Adrienne Baddeley who recorded an excellent 42.20 in her first serious 10k. The very experienced Marie Synnott-Wells was next home, taking a bronze medal in the W45 Surrey championship. Becky Northmore was next, then also inside 50 minutes were Elisa Ferrua and newcomer Niamh Holt. There were 74 Ranelagh finishers in all, and it's a great effort on our part that so many are able to run while we still find enough marshals, water station attendants and so on to ensure an enjoyable and safe race. This doesn't happen on its own! Race Director Rick Jenner and his team did another great job, and Rick adds: "Thank you to everyone that took part in the Ranelagh Harriers Richmond 10k on Sunday. Well done to the runners who managed well in the pretty unbearable heat. And a huge thank you to everyone who volunteered and made the race possible. I have had a lot of positive feedback about the race and the marshals in particular for making it the fun event it is. Massive gratitude to Hannah (for co-ordinating all the volunteers and getting the new t-shirts), Niall for getting up early to manage the start and finish, Hugh for cycling down from north London to put up signs and be lead bike, and of course Alan for being our starter once again. And whoever it was who had the idea of setting up a sprinkler at the water station - great thinking! Next year I would either like to hand the Director reins to someone else or will need more help with some crucial roles - if either is of interest drop me an email to email@example.com." Do get in touch with Rick if you think you can help...meanwhile, many many thanks go to him and to all those involved. Following the race we enjoyed our annual barbecue back at the clubhouse. Some 35-40 members attended and the limited shade was much sought after as the mid-afternoon sun beat down. Thanks to Michele Gibson and Andy Hayward for organisation before the day, and to Ewa Soltys and a number of guest barbecuers for keeping us fed and watered on the day itself. MINI MOB MATCH v THE STRAGGLERS Saturday 24th June at Bushy Park This was the ninth mini-mob match between ourselves and Strags but the first to contest the new Rothwell-Wright Shield commemorating Straggler Nigel Rothwell and our own Peter Wright. Prior to today the series total was four each and Strags were evidently all out to take the lead. It was a "home" fixture for them - held in conjunction with the normal Saturday morning Bushy parkrun - and they pulled out all the stops to ensure a massive mob of 143 runners. Our total of 70 was fair but inevitably we were swamped. We managed to supply the first three home in the shape of Ian Kenton, Greg Atkins and Steve Whitehead, and Kris Davidson and Duncan Mallison also made the top ten. Things were fairly even up to the first thirty or so, but thereafter, Stragglers' weight of numbers began to tell and the gap between the two totals inexorably climbed. It was 67 a side to score and the final result was a win for The Stragglers by 3610 to 6546. Laura Blazey and Ria Woodfield were the leading two women, with Adrienne Baddeley and Becky Curtis-Hall 4th and 5th. It was good to see a number of juniors taking part, as well as a pair of over-80s! STRAGGLERS / RANELAGH JUNIOR HANDICAP SERIES RACE 3 Thursday 8th June in Richmond Park This was the third race in the six event series. We were the hosts and by most reckoning we were the most successful team on the day. We provided the biggest contingent - 21 out of 66 finishers - Ranelagh runners filled 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th and 8th places in the handicap and the fastest girl and boy were from Ranelagh. But unfortunately most of the front finishers were first-timers and therefore didn't score highly, while the fastest finishers were too far down the field in the handicap to score much either. So the team result saw another win for the Flaming Penguins with 46 points to Ranelagh's 33, giving a cumulative total of 122 to 90. Our first finisher in 3rd place was Jack Donovan, pursued by Alfie Williams 4th and Jack's sister Megan in 5th. Matty Key and Luke Maguire completed our front-running pack, with Luke officially 2nd boy home after all the first timers were excluded. Fastest time was set by Tom Armstrong who recorded 7.20 down the field in 46th place. Joe Murphy and Alistair Brendon were two of only three other runners to beat 8 minutes but they too were well down the field. Just outside 8 minutes was Harriet Wiltshire with the fastest girls' time of 8.08. In the individual standings Alfie Lafeuille is in 2nd place, Nathaniel Bond is 6th, Angus O'Brien 8th and Luke Maguire 12th. 1 O Woolmer (unatt) 16.22 (actual time 11.22 - 1st gal) 3 Jack Donovan (Ranelagh) 16.49 (8.49) 4 Alfie Williams (Rane) 17.08 (9.08) 5 Megan Donovan (Rane) 17.51 (12.51) 6 Matty Key (Ranelagh) 17.59 (9.59) 7 J Norman (Coombe Hill) 18.03 (10.33 - 1st boy) 8 Luke Maguire (Ranelagh) 18.20 (8.20 - 2nd boy) 19 Ben Riedel 19.40 (8.10) 24 Matthew Beal 19.51 (8.21) 25 Alfie Lafeuille 19.51 (8.51) 31 Daniel Rushby 19.58 (8.28) 32 Nathaniel Bond 20.00 (9.00) 38 Harriet Wiltshire 20.08 (8.08 - fastest girl) 41 Joe Murphy 20.12 (7.42) 42 Harry Armstrong 20.13 (8.13) 44 James Rushby 20.15 (8.45) 45 Alistair Brendon 20.16 (7.46) 46 Tom Armstrong 20.20 (7.20 - fastest boy) 47 Ben Rushby 20.28 (10.58) 49 Oliver Beal 20.31 (9.31) 53 Sam Rushby 20.46 (9.16) 59 James Ricketts 21.18 (13.18) 63 Angus O'Brien 21.29 (12.59) Teams 1 Flaming Penguins 46 (total 122) 2 Ranelagh Harriers 33 (90) 3 Sheen Shufflers 19 (36) 4 Coombe Hill School 17 (35) 5 The Stragglers 9 (26) 11 teams represented Minis 1 L Hughes (unatt) 2.16 2 Remy Lafeuille (Rane) 2.48 4 Cian O'Brien 3.06 THAMES HARE & HOUNDS PARKLAND RELAY Wednesday 14th June in Richmond Park Peter Fordham took on men's captaincy chores for the day, as he never misses an opportunity to sell this race. Certainly you could find a lot less enjoyable things to do than running in a low key relay in the middle of the Park on a bright and warm summer's evening. We had four teams of four out, two senior men and two veteran men. Probably the best performance came from Vets A who, anchored strongly by Kris Davidson, finished 16th overall but 4th amongst the vets teams and only 4 seconds behind 3rd place. Ranelagh A finished 8th with Ted Mockett running a speedy last stage, Ranelagh B were 28th with an eye-catching lap 3 from Chris Bundhun and likewise for Vets B Simon Martin an lap 3 was the fastest for the team that placed 33rd out of 53 complete men's teams. 1 Thames Hare & Hounds 58.54 8 Ranelagh A 64.40 Dave Lawley 16.02 Richard Kimber 16.18 Allan Whatmough 16.48 Ted Mockett 15.32 16 Ranelagh Vets A 68.59 Michael Morris 17.41 Rick Jenner 17.02 Vaughan Ramsay 17.52 Kris Davidson 16.24 28 Ranelagh B 73.28 Simon Lawrence 21.40 Patrick Butlin 17.46 Chris Bundhun 16.45 Mark Herbert 17.17 33 Ranelagh Vets B 76.37 Gordon Whitson 20.04 Stephen Logue 20.24 Simon Martin 17.55 Paul Sinton-Hewitt 18.14 SOUTH DOWNS WAY MARATHON RELAY Saturday 17th June Slindon to Petersfield Two Ranelagh teams of four took part: an "Intermediate 1" team comprising Wiebke Kortum, Chris Read, Elisa Ferrua and Amelia Churnside and an "Old Friends" team of Michael White, Alison Dicks, Jar O'Brien and a friend of Michael's. The four stages were 7.5m, 5.6m, 6.9m and 6.2m, making up the 26.2 miles Marathon distance Chris Read writes: "The race was well organised and scenic, although the hills were tough, especially in view of the hot weather. It was an enjoyable event, with more than 90 teams completing the course. Wiebke's Intermediate 1 team came 13th and Michael's Old Friends were 42nd. Somewhat surprisingly despite being made to run up and down hills in temperatures of 30C we were still all friends at the end of the day." 1 Team Tunbridge Wells 2:46.30 13 Ranelagh Intermediate 1 3:38.06 42 Ranelagh Old Friends 4:08.49 WORLD MOUNTAIN RUNNING CHAMPIONSHIPS TRIALS and HOME COUNTRIES INTERNATIONAL Sunday 18th June at Sedbergh Nic Jackson was the fourth counter for the winning England team on a 12.6km course in the Howgill Hills featuring 866 metres ascent and descent. Nic writes on Facebook: "So unbelievably hot at Sedbergh today, chuffed with 5th overall and 1st team with the England girls". 1 K Walshaw (Eng) 61.47 5 Nichola Jackson 65.14 SRI CHINMOY MIDSUMMER 10k Saturday 24th June 1 D Jordan (unatt) 33.21 27 Martin Halvey 39.43 (3rd M50) MARATHON du MONT BLANC Sunday 25th June at Chamonix, France Marina Quayle writes on Facebook: "It's the morning after the Mont Blanc marathon and I'm still feeling so happy and relieved that I managed to finish within the cut off time. The course was tough with 2700 m of altitude gain but the finish at Plan Praz made it worth it with amazing views of Mont Blanc and a great atmosphere."

Sonny MAUND 7:13, Alistair BRENDON 8:20, Ewan LORIMER 8:51 FINALLY... A world record total number of 386,050 applicants from the UK and overseas registered for a ballot place in the 2018 Virgin Money London Marathon when the application system closed on May 5. Of that number, 327,516 were from the UK... 73,586 up from the previous UK applicant record of 253,930 for the 2017 event - an increase of nearly 29%. Just over 58% of the UK applications were from people who have never run a marathon and more than 45% were women (also a new record). Hugh Brasher, Event Director for London Marathon Events, said: "It's fantastic that more than 191,000 people from the UK have been inspired to apply to run a marathon for the first time in 2018. In 1981, less than 300 of the 6300 finishers were women. More than 149,000 women from the UK have applied to run next year and, in another first, there were more female than male first time marathon runners from the UK who applied this year (51.7% v 48.3%).
