 The club membership fee includes the England Athletics registration and 
 despite another increase in the England Athletics registration fee to £15, 
 we are keeping our subscription rates unchanged for another year. That's  £40
 for seniors, £20 for second-claim members and those who are retired and
 over  60, £10 for under 20s and students and non-running members. There is
 also a  £70 family membership. Preferred method of payment is by Bank
 Transfer: our account is at HSBC, sort code 40-23-29, account number
 81109847; please add a message, for example SubscriptionJSmith. A Standing
 Order form is available from our website here: . Alternatively post a cheque
 to Membership Secretary, Ranelagh Harriers, 135a Petersham Road, Richmond,
 Surrey TW10 7AA or leave it in an envelope at the clubhouse. For any
 queries, e-mail the Membership Secretary aachrisowens@yahoo.co.uk. 

 Once a member has paid her/his Club Subscription for the year, then the 
 Club pays to England Athletics the annual registration fee. When the Club
 first registers a member with England Athletics (EA), apart from paying the
 registration fee, the Club provides to EA the member’s title, name, date of
 birth, competitive status and address. 
 Please be aware that only EA Registered athletes may compete in competitions
 under UK Athletics Rules. The EA registration expires annually on 1 April
 each year and athletes are considered Unregistered by UK Athletics and hence
 ineligible to compete in UK Athletics sanctioned events if the registration
 fee remains unpaid after 30 June. So, please pay your Club subs promptly!

 There’s still time to put your name down for the quiz night in the clubhouse
 on Saturday 28th April starting at 7pm. It’s teams of four, make up your own
 team or just come along on the night and we’ll fit you into a team. Price is
 £10 per head to include a fish and chip supper (or veggie alternative –
 please state). Please let Andy Hayward  know if you are coming –

 We need more runners and marshals for the Ranelagh Richmond Half Marathon on
 Sunday 6th May.

 1. Please enter and run (or get friends etc. to enter) as numbers are low
 this year: Entries:.
 2. Even if you are running you can also volunteer at
 RanelaghHalfHelpers@hotmail.co.uk as we need  people to help before
 the start and also around the Fox and Duck – just simple messages to keep
 out of car parks and corral people towards the start line
 3. Please marshal if you are not running by emailing
 here:.  At present we are short of
 marshals for water stations near York House and Hampton court (how scenic
 can you get!), some marshals are needed around Kingston Bridge and Hampton
 court, as well as a few on Ranelagh Drive towards the finish in Ham – about
 12 to 15 more marshals needed please! Start time is 8.30am. If anyone is
 keen and able we could also do with another lead bike to guide the runners
 at the front of the field. 

 Registration for the ballot for places in next year’s London Marathon is
 open for just five days, from 30th April to 4th May. Go to Details:.
 Good for Age qualification has been tightened up with a five minutes

 SUTTON 10km  Sunday 20th May
 This is the fourth race in our 2018 Road Grand Prix, and the second Surrey
 Road League fixture. Unfortunately it clashes this year with the Green Belt

 “Green Belt Relay - Helpers needed.
 It's less than a month to go to this year's GBR and it looks like it will be
 the best ever with three Ranelagh teams amongst a record field of 50 teams
 entered. If you want to be involved but haven't already signed up to run,
 don't worry you can as we are looking for volunteers! Currently we need
 someone to drive one of the first aiders round the course, ie a job for the
 whole weekend, through to if you can spare just an hour or two marshalling
 the first or last stages locally. Email me if you can help:

 ONE THOUSAND parkruns
 Bushy’s parkrun news for 7th April informs us that Wally Garrod and John
 Hanscomb achieved a combined parkrun total of 1000. Wally first ran at Bushy
 in November 2004 at event number 6. He has run 429 times and has a PB of
 24:13 which he ran in February 2005. John first ran at Bushy in January 2005
 at event number 18. he has a PB of 25:30 which he ran in February 2005. He
 has run 571 times. In 1953 John ran 18:10 in a three mile race around
 Regent's Park and he also ran the first 28 London marathons from 1981 to

 John Warner writes from Canada:
 “Our race committee is excited about the 40th annual ‘Footrace’ planned for
 Sunday, August 12th, 2018.  This year it will be run in honour of the great
 Ed Whitlock who was well known to many Ranelagh members. Ed was a great fan
 of Canada’s famous early 20th century runner, Tom Longboat. On August 9th,
 2008, Ed participated in a ‘Friendship Run’ to commemorate the 100th
 anniversary of Tom Longboat’s race from Lancaster to Williamstown, Ontario.
 Since 2008, Ed returned every year he could, to participate in the 5k or 11k
 races.  In typical Whitlock fashion, Ed wouldn’t accept a gift from our race
 committee and after the race, he’d drive home - 500 km.

 If any Ranelagh Harriers would like to participate, we can offer you home
 hospitality and accommodation for the weekend.  In Williamstown, that
 weekend, you can attend Canada’s oldest fair (over 200 years old), check out
 the Nor’Westers Museum and other historical places of early Upper Canada
 (situated an hour from Ottawa, an hour from Montreal and two hours from Lake
 Placid, N.Y.). Here’s a Facebook link:.

 Esther Goldsmith writes:
 “My name is Esther Goldsmith and I am currently a Master’s student at St
 Mary’s University, Twickenham, studying Applied Sports and Exercise
 Physiology. I am about to start my dissertation research project and am
 looking for participants for the study. The study is titled: The effect of
 fluctuating progesterone concentrations during the menstrual cycle on
 running economy in trained athletes. 

 I am passionate about women’s health in sport and exercise, especially
 concerning the menstrual cycle. It has been such a taboo subject for so
 long, which has meant that little is known about the effect of the menstrual
 cycle on sport performance. However, with more and more women participating
 in sport, knowing more is incredibly important! My study aims to provide
 some valuable information regarding how the menstrual cycle can affect
 running performance. It may also help to raise awareness about the
 physiological differences that occur for women in sport. The testing itself
 will be a lactate profile and VO2max test; perfect tests to help
 participants with their fitness and training (and tests that usually only
 elite athletes get to perform).

 I would love to get some participants from the Ranelagh Harriers, as you are
 so local. If you would like to take part or if you have any questions, then
 please don’t hesitate to email me at 174993@live.stmarys.ac.uk.” 

 Don’t forget that we meet for a casual drink after training on the first
 Tuesday of each month. Venue is upstairs at the Roebuck on Richmond Hill.
 All welcome.

 The club is continuing to subsidise track sessions on Thursday evenings at

 In stark contrast to the horrendous conditions experienced by the runners in
 the historic Boston Marathon a few days before (where the winning time was
 the slowest since 1976), the warnings were out for record high temperatures
 in London. Those in fancy dress were advised to think twice about costumes
 that would add to the heat. But it took more than warnings to put off the
 traditional British eccentric and the brides, trees, beer bottles and rhinos
 were all out in force as usual. Also out in force as usual was an impressive
 group of East Africans who would surely be contesting the major prizes –
 that is, unless Marathon novice Mo Farah could upset the bandwagon. 

 Pre-race favourite Eliud Kipchoge asked the pacemakers to set a terrific
 pace, with a target of 61 minutes for the first half. The pacemakers earned
 their money by going through in exactly that time – though by then the lead
 pack was breaking up. Soon only Kipchoge, the relatively little known
 Ethiopian Tola Kitata and Farah were left. Farah was off the back too before
 long and it just remained for Kipchoge to administer the coup-de-grace to
 the courageous Ethiopian. This he did ruthlessly and despite slowing
 slightly in the closing stages Kipchoge went on to build up a winning margin
 of more than half a minute with 2:04.17. Farah stuck to his task and
 successfully defended third place with a new British record of 2:06.21.

 For the women’s race the organisers opted to provide male pacemakers. This
 was to enable the Kenyan Mary Keitany or the Ethiopian Tirunesh Dibaba to
 attack Paula Radcliffe’s paced world record. It didn’t work. The 23 degrees
 temperature might have been to blame but Dibaba dropped out and Keitany
 could not maintain the pace. Instead it was the steadier starting Vivian
 Cheruiyot who came through to collect the laurels with a time of 2:18.31
 some three minutes slower than Radcliffe’s 15 year-old record.              

 For the Ranelagh contingent it was Nick Impey who led the way all the way.
 Nick ran strongly up to 30k but from there it was a struggle and in the last
 few kilometres Carl Selya-Hammer was closing fast. Carl was the holder of
 the Winter Cup club marathon championship and he wanted to keep it! But Nick
 valiantly kept it together long enough to cross the line a little more than
 half a minute ahead of Carl in 2:47.10. Third finisher was Carl Assmundson.
 He and Carl S-H ran most of the first half together, but Carl A began to
 fall off the pace a little sooner than his namesake and finished in 2:52.08.
 Also inside three hours were Ian Kenton, Jonathan Moore and Gareth Williams.

 There were six Ranelagh women in the race this year, and there was a
 surprise winner of the Brasher Bowl women’s club Marathon championship in
 the shape of new member Alice Littler. Alice moved through from two minutes
 down on Julia Bailey at half way to lead her in by more than five minutes in
 a time of 2:53.41. Third place went to Rachel Revett who narrowly missed the
 four hours barrier.   

 Bruce McLaren finished in 3:42  six days after completing Boston in 3:33.
 Our ever-present Mike Peace went through half way in his 38th London
 Marathon in a respectable 1:58 but the second half proved difficult.
 Nevertheless he finished, albeit in his slowest time so far and his first
 time outside 4 hours. There are now just eleven ever-presents.

 LONDON MINI-MARATHON  Sunday 22nd April
 We were well represented in the Mini Marathon which covers the final few
 kilometres of the Marathon course. Most were in the Richmond borough team,
 but several other boroughs were represented too. Most successful once again
 were our Under 17 girls. Freya Thomson, Izzy Atkins and Alice Patterson all
 made the top twelve, headed in 3rd place by Freya who was only beaten to the
 top spot by three seconds. Samson Nesbitt emulated Freya with third place in
 the Under 13 boys, pursued by Sonny Maund 10th.

 BOSTON MARATHON  Monday 16th April
 Richard Kimber reports:
 "o ra-NELL-a!', 'Yeah, RAWN-lee!' were just a couple of the attempts at
 pronouncing the club's name by the remarkably hardy and enthusiastic
 supporters who turned out for the Boston Marathon and managed to read my
 vest through the several feet of vertical water between us. But by far the
 most frequent cry was, in an instance of whatever the reverse of nominal
 determinism is, 'Go rain-law!' Apt - if there was any weather-related law
 ruling over Boston this year, it was that of rain. 
 With blistering temperatures in 2017, the weather has tended to be a
 defining characteristic of the world's oldest marathon in recent years, and
 it was clear that the race would be a battle against the conditions well
 before the starter's pistol was even raised - temperatures plummeted the day
 before the race, the entire city sold out of gloves (I ran in a pair bought
 from a knock-off Harvard gift shop), and there was a general sense of
 trepidation mixed with good humour around the athletes' village in Hopkinton
 before the start. Chatting to other runners, I got the exact same response
 three times to a question about what they were aiming for: 'the finish

 It might not have been a day for PBs but it made for an experience that
 arguably encapsulates everything the marathon is about - a test of resolve
 and self-belief in difficult conditions. Women's winner Desi Linden put it
 perfectly: 'It's supposed to be hard.' The weather inevitably put off many
 would-be spectators but the crowds still put those at most British events to
 shame with their cheering and positivity (not least my devoted and sodden

 So far I've taken it for granted that readers will have seen footage of the
 conditions. If you need an illustration, it made the weather at recent
 Ranelagh handicap races look like a light summer shower. I've never seen
 rain like it, let alone run in conditions like it, and it did not stop from
 several hours before the race until the evening after. Add in high
 temperatures of 4C, perceptibly lowered by a constant headwind of up to
 40mph (the course is point-to- point heading east - not great with a due
 easterly) and you get the picture. As I passed Framingham's St Tarcisius
 church around the six-mile mark, the absence of an ark outside seemed like a
 genuine oversight.

 And despite a run that was less a battle against the elements than an
 all-out war, my experience thoroughly reinforced the Boston Marathon's
 reputation as the world's greatest race. Incredible support, superb
 organisation and fantastic camaraderie made for a sense of achievement at
 even completing the course.

 I was happy to squeak in just under three hours, well shy of my target time.
 With Bruce McLaren and Neil Rae also achieving the serious feat of finishing
 in 3:33 and 3:26 respectively, the Ranelites attending gave a good acquittal
 of the club on a day when one in ten runners ended up in the medical tent.

 Debates will rage on as to whether the biblical conditions of 2018 or the
 two previous years' heatwaves made for tougher running. I believe Bruce has
 run in both, so the casting vote will have to be his. Here's hoping for more
 clement weather in London."

 Gordon Whitson adds:
 “I believe it was James Whistler who acquired the status of Ranelagh’s
 record breaking legume last year. However, yesterday’s epic Boston Marathon
 has clearly thrown up a new challenge for him. The heroic victor, Yuki
 Kawauchi, the “citizen runner” included a half marathon dressed as a panda
 in his preparations.”
