Berlin Marathon - Sunday 24th September 2017
Berlin Marathon report by Andy Bolderstone
A month or so ago I decided to forget about times and just realize that 4 marathons in one year for someone like me (slow and with 3 marathons in 4 years previously) is a feat in itself. Had to keep reminding myself today though.
Today Berlin was grotty - grey skies, intermittent rain and cold (it said 15degrees but felt colder)
It is a busy race. So many people running. I was in the last pen which meant waiting around in the rain showers. It was so busy up til halfway that it was hard to find space to pass people. All my times were 10+ mins a mile (usually my second half pace). And a confession I neglected my core work and boy did it tell. My back was sore that in the second half of the race I walked roughly .2 of a mile for a lot of the second half to get some respite. Mile 19 - duh! I remembered I had painkillers so I got to the next water station and took some. Mile 25 was my quickest of the whole race at 9.30 ish and the final .6 at 9.17 pace. Oh well. I've learnt lots this year so I hope to put that into practise for Venice next month (mid race I was adamant I wasn't doing it).
My race weekend could have been more conducive to a good race (I travelled late on Friday evening, rented a room as I was on my own and really missed Annette and the girls) and the weather was miserable ( I had been fearing an Indian summer but it seems the sun chose wisely and shined on ELR today).
Berlin was a course that could be great for fast times. If you're an elite runner. Every 3 miles us slowies had to run through mountains of plastic cups (cups not bottles! Come on Berlin you're meant to be a major marathon).
If I had been in a higher starting pen I reckon I could have knocked a min a mile of my first half (maybe ðŸ¤”) which would have brought me close to a pb but I didn't merit one to be honest. Four weeks to improve my core before Venice!! Oh and I brought up 1000 miles in 2017 mid raceðŸ˜
3 marathons (2 pb's) down, 1 left this year.
Paul Quinton:- Berlin Marathon 2:51:45. Gutted, but I wont stop until that 2:45 barrier is broken! Thanks to my long suffering wife for being so understanding when I go running for hrs on end every weekend!

Purbeck 16 - Sunday 17th September 2017
The Purbeck Running Festival 2017 (Marathon/16)
I signed up for this event for 2 reasons 1. its 5 minutes from my Parents House 2. The Views!
Considering they rate this event as 'Hard' on the website I probably should of trained a bit harder but alas life happens, although Im not overly keen on trail running (mainly because its knackers you out a lot quicker than road running) I fancied signing up as I am very familiar with this particular area of Dorset and I absolutely adore it so fancied a challenge and fortunately I was able to rope Jenny in for another go at the Marathon and me the 16.
We took a selfie on the pier and wished each other luck with a slight look of fear in both our eyes and Jenny set off for the Marathon. A short while later I gathered with the 16 Mile group for the briefing and then we began.
The race starts in Swanage immediately heading UP the hill towards Durlston and then past Anvil Point, this was about a 4.5 mile clamber along the cliff where we eventually turned off and headed UP.....AGAIN along the coastal path towards Worth Matravas (FINALLY AN ACTUAL ROAD) up through Kingston and onwards to Corfe Castle where there was a water station which to my delight also had Jaffa Cakes on offer (to say I was excited about the sight of a jaffa cake after 11 miles of trail is an understatement), once through Corfe we ran across and began the assent up to Ballard Down where I was relieved to discover plenty of people walking as this went on for a good few miles. Eventually I reached the top where I could enjoy the descent back down to Swanage along the Sea Front and up to the finish.
Shortly after I had finished and was tucking in to a less than impressive orange my mum lept to her feet shouting "8 THEY SAID 8 THATS JENNY" I hobbled over to the finish where my mum was still keen to get her attention I pointed out that she might be a tad delirious after nearly 27 miles of trail running in under 4 hours (especially after finding out you were 1st lady).
A great event that was well sign posted with plenty of marshals along the way, although It was incredibly challenging I wouldn't say no to doing it again as It was the most scenically beautiful route I have ever experienced.

|Alexandra Rutishauser-Perera||54.46 pb|
You know you are addicted to running and your ELR mates when you wake up at 5ham on a Sunday morning for a race ! Diana and i did a great 2 miles warm up from Richmond station, necessary cause it was pretty cold. I started the first mile quite fast but it went up hills quite quickly for the first 3k and when i looked at my watch and my pace, i started giving up the idea of a PB! Thought it was fine and i could enjoy watching the deers but once the hills finished , i saw my pace improving more and more downhills and went for a PB halfway on km5! Realised i could still go for it and when my legs started to complain at kilometer 6, i told them: come on, you carried me for a 20 miles last Sunday, stop moaning, you are not gonna let me down now... 54mins 46s: a new PB ! Really pleased with that ! It was lovely to then hang around with Diana and Rachel afterwards and cheer on for the guys doing the Duathlon! Sorry i couldn't stay longer for your duathlon, Rachel ... Diana and I finished with a 2.5 miles warm down to the station ( I am chasing a 100miles mileage this month after all ) ! Richmond is a long way but it was worth it !!!

Great Run Local. I really enjoyed it! It was really low key, only 6 of us
including Stuart Stupot Barton and Jessica Trayler-Moore , and we got the
route completely wrong and muddled, it didn't matter though, in fact it
made me run faster as I didn't want to get lost or left behind! It did mean
we didn't really run home like we'd planned too, the lure of toast in EAT
was tooooq tempting!

Run Through QEOP 5km - Saturday 16th September 2017
Run Through Chase The Sun 5km, QEOP - Wednesday 13th September 2017
Runthrough Chase the Sun race at the Olympic Park.
**SPOILER ALERT*** No PB tonight...but what a fab race!!!
The organisers were friendly, enthusiastic and encouraging from the off. How fab to be remembered by the "man in charge" Matt Wood (no relation but what a great name) - considering the last Runthrough race I did was 2 years ago!!
The course was ACE!!! Flat, fast and quite a bit downhill - so why no PB I hear you screaming at your phone/tablet/laptop?? What more does this woman want??????
Well having done almost 13 miles on Sunday I was perhaps slightly deluded in my abilities tonight - plus now being referred for physio for my poorly arm as been in pain for days ðŸ˜£. Also today was my second 0430hrs alarm call. Put it all together and it's not ideal.
Anyway, I'd entered the 10k but 5k started at the same time. Mile 1 I was flying (for me) and had to slow down - yep SLOW DOWN - to try and keep a steady pace. 9.09 for mile 1. Considering 8.15 is my PB I was grinning already. Mile 2 a steady 9.27 but my arm and legs did not share my joy.
2.5 miles in I decided a good 5k would do me and so cut the race short. Last mile still under 10mins and a sprint finish saw me just 50secs away from a PB! If I'd have started with the intention of doing 5k I'm pretty sure I'd have done a PB. But for once I'm pleased with my efforts.
Coming into the finish line Matt was calling out over the mic and I had the crowd cheering me on. The shame of how chuffed I felt overtaking a 10 year old boy was quickly forgotten as he smuggly - actually VERY smuggly - made a comeback and sprinted over the line before me!!
Waiting on the other side were 2 more of Matt's team ready to congratulate me, ask how I found it and genuinely make me feel like I was a winner!!
It was great to cheer my work running buddy over the finish line and seeing him get a 10k PB of 45 mins! !! His perplexed look that I was finished before him was priceless!!
To sum it up - a fab course, a fab atmosphere, fab support team, fab organisers who made me feel fab!! I drove home grinning the whole way....and am now about to book another race.
Runthrough?? FAB! FAB! FAB!

Back from day 3 at Victoria Park this morning. Today was a series of 3 sprints.
Each about 1km with 23 - 25 markers. These had a map for each course with the marker
you had to register , but no number telling you if you were right. A man made maze
with about 16 markers in was at the start or the finish of each leg. 30 second penalties
if you made an error.
While I was doing about 11 mins for a leg, the experts were doing half that time.
Averaging about 4 mins in errors for each leg.
Met up with Kate's husband Mike Brett. He was doing well and hopefully qualifying for
the later finals. I didn't hang around for the later finals or the mass race about 1.15pm.
All in all I've enjoyed it and will keep an eye out for next years series.
The Central Line series will be back in October, more details in a few weeks.

Woburn Abbey Triathlon Report:
First part of the Woburn Abbey Triathlon. Swam in a pond / lake, which was quite reedy. Kept feeling things rubbing against my feet. Yuck. Quite cold, but ok. Felt good, but my feet were freezing. Will wear swim shoes next time. Transition was hard, as found it hard to take off the wet suit with cold, wet hands. It got stuck at the elbows. T1 was 6:46, very slow.
2nd part of the triathlon - 20km bike ride. Very cold, rainy and windy conditions. Had to contend with 1 steep ish hill, strong gusts, speed bumps and cattle grids. Very pleased with the time as it was 5 mins faster than Henley Tri in June. T2 was 3:41, which was slower than June. Cold hands, as had forgotten to put on my gloves.
OMG: as I was pulling on my shoes for the final session, who did I see, but Ava Lee, with her stuff packed, coat on and ready to head home. How does she do it? My heart sank!!
Last section - 5KM run. Flat out and back final run. Felt fine, up to the 3rd lap. The rain really came down, pouring. Ham string felt very tight. Had to stop to shake it out. After a minute or two was able to finish the race, even though the finish was up hill. Not nice. Pleased with the time as I was exhausted. About 30 s quicker than June's Tri run. Overall, 1 hour, 55mins, 20 secs. Under 2 hours, so quite pleased, but could do better. Need to work my swimming and transitions.
Well organised triathlon with cheerful and helpful marshals. Great to see so many women taking part.
But there was nowhere to really keep warm and dry, whilst waiting for your race. Also, no real goody bag, just a bottle of water and a sachet of recovery powder. Lovely medal, though. Nonetheless, will do it next year to improve my time. Well done to Ava and Danny for such a fast finish. Nice to see a friendly face in the crowd.Julie Campbell

London City Race - day 2 Barbican (Full Distance Urban)
Day 2 was amongst the maze of concrete estates of the Barbican. I checked in , collecting my
number and tshirt and made my way to the start.
At the start I met up with fellow ELR Kate Brett , who had also been at Wapping the night before
( but never met) . Once the challenge started to find 19 checkpoints I headed first towards St Pauls
and the Guildhall then towards the Barbican. Moving up from the ground level to overhead corridors
then back to ground level, passed Kate a couple of times going quite well up to point 14 (44 mins)
back up to an overhead level again.
Point 15 was a nightmare, spending nearly 35 minutes searching the levels finding at least another
6 checkpoints none were the right one. Found 16 (85 mins) then did a backtrack to try and find 15 from
a another direction, failed again. Plenty of others running round looking lost. Finished the course
with ease then to spend about 90 mins and 1 checkpoint missing. Would definitely try again if only to
finish the course. Last day today at Victoria Park. Knee's like yesterday are painful but once I
started running yesterday were fine during the run.

London City Race - Prologue : Wapping (Orienteering) - Friday 8th September 2017

London City Race - day 1 Wapping. (Friday Prologue)
Friday night I headed up to my old workplace in Wapping for day 1 of a 3 day orienteering event.
286 entrants. This was my first time doing a proper orienteering event , the others being street
events looking for road names, signs or numbers with clues.
These signs were marked by the regular orienteering boxes with a scanner to check in at each one.
Based at the John Orwell Sports Centre we headed about 700m to Wapping Woods for the start. Just
in time for a short burst of rain to soak you as you get ready to start. Some were tricky as I
found with the first one, heading to the right corner searching everywhere to eventually find it
up a flight of stairs to a first floor balcony.
Most were tied to tree's or railings in small estates or along the canals or Thames Path by
St Katherines Docks.
I had daylight for the first 50 minutes or so then darkness came in making the last few harder
to find. I did find all 17 markers but not in the right order, unfortunately the printed results
showed as 2 missing. You have to check them in the right order. Good fun and I'll know for tomorrow.
19 signs around the maze of the Barbican with 812+ entries. Day 3 at Victoria Park.

Some PBs at the Parallel run in London with a great ELR team !
Great atmosphere and cause to run for ! Quite emotional actually
to run with amazing athletes in their wheelchair !
Thank you so much again for making me August #CROTM cause that's
all i was thinking about when my legs really started hurting in
the last 2 miles and it allowed me to do a PB and finally get under
1h on a 10k ! And it also pushed me to run back home now instead
of taking the bus ðŸ˜!

at the last turn to the home straight!!! And a sprint finish
overtaking someone right at the last minute - spectators fantastic!!!

Run report for today's Wissey Half Marathon
Got there at 9.30 to collect my numbers & to the loo's (lots as nerves kicked in )
I went for a slow mile warm up with some of my werrington joggers that I use to run with.
We walked to the Start which was 5mins away & a very narrow country lane I lined up in the
sub 2hr line
We had the obligatory safety talk & then we were off
I started off at 9 mile pace & then gradually picked up my pace to 8:40 & kept this pace
for as long as possible which was to mile 11.
The race was advertised as fast & flat I would definitely disagree with flat.
Crossing the line in 1hr 56 & a PB made it all worth while.

Orion Harriers Mad Mile - Wednesday 30th August 2017
|Marc Akers||6.35 pb||12th|
|Joanna Wood||8.15 pb||25th|
So tonight was sold to us as a "fast, flat mad mile". But were Orion Harriers'
idea of a fast flat race the same as us ELRs who are used to tarmac and the
less undulating the better in my case???
Well smiles and a warm welcome for Marc and I made us feel at ease upon arrival,
a mile jog to the start and then we were off. Fast, flat and mad sums it up for
some of the speeds people ran!!! The course was downhill and great. I had the
luxury of a couple of backmarkers to keep me going - how can a mile be soooooooo
tough when I've run much longer distances?
Luckily I was supported the whole way and although finishing last it was great
having all those cheers to the finish line! Marc got a PB.
Oh and my time? At 8.15 it's a PB by 15 SECONDS !!! Chuffed considering I'm finding
it tough to get my mojo back. What a great run and a great welcome over the last 3 weeks.
Thanks Orion Harriers.

Antonio reports:- It is always a pleasure to run in Spain.
Taking advantage I was here on holidays, I signed up for the Cross
of Sanlucar on the beach (5 miles). I shouldn't have run it because
I am still in the pre-season but well, I don't have many chances
during the year. 2nd overall and first M30.
Isle Of Wight Half Marathon - Sunday 20th August 2017
Not as fast as last year. Definitely a tougher route though.
Starting at the bottom of a hill, feeling rubbish for the first
3 miles I only really enjoyed the race from mile 7 - so wasn't
the most enjoyable of runs. This year the amendments meant it
was about 40% trail
Cross Minero Llano Del Beal, Murcia, Spain (8,450m) - Saturday 19th August 2017
Steve reports:- This race was methodically planned for:
1. Janet & I arrive in Spain 2 weeks beforehand to enable a harsh daily regime of "hydration" and carb loading.
2. "Booking" our places by failing to complete the online form, missing the deadline and then resorting to Google Translate and emails with our final instruction being "You're registered -ask for Toni when you get here"
3. Anxiously warming up on race day by lying on a beach.
Llano Del Beal is a little mining town not far from the coast in Murcia, South East Spain. When we arrived it had been taken over for a festival of running. Although it's up in the hills, the evening temperatures were in the high 20s. Everyone apart from us was in their running kit. After failing to find "Toni" and a last minute change in a pub toilet, we emerged in our iconic red vests and joined the start from which we were soon sent on our way.
After a short circuit of the town, envying the spectators with their cold cans of beer, we headed for the hills on (hot) dusty brown trails, strewn with stones, in and out of ditches. After about 2k I could see the start line again as we headed black into town. This was met with a mixture of panic ("We must have started in the wrong race, ours was supposed to be 8.5k!") and relief ("Where can I get one of those beers?") but then we were sent off up yet another (hot) hill in a cloud of brown dust to more abandoned coal mines and spectacular views of the coastline.
The reward for doing hilly races is usually the chance to let the brakes off for the downhill stretches. There were a few of those in Cross Minero, but just as many (hot) downhills covered with loose rubble and signs saying "peligroso" where the brakes were well and truly applied. However, with what I thought was about a kilometre to go, there was a long, wide and fairly sure footed (hot) stretch back towards the town. At last the end was in sight. Or was it? Nope - another twist to the left and one of the steepest climbs of the whole course. Muchos gracias amigos!
After one last peligroso downhill (including a slight disagreement between my big toe and a semi-hidden rock which could have ended in tragedy), the finish line was finally crossed. I have to say this was one of the hardest races I'd done. When hills, rough terrain and heat gang up on you, it's not always fun, but I had a good sense of achievement as we collected our generous goody-bags (including the usual chicken soup and a melon). After another failed attempt to find "Toni", we drove off for some recovery nutrition and rehydration (well I think that's what "tapas y cana" means).
p.s. did I mention it was hot?

Hoad Hill Half Marathon - Sunday 13th August 2017
Note:- Hoad Hill Marathon follows a mixture of trail, coastal path,
canal towpath and quiet country lanes giving stunning views of the beautiful
South Lakes and Morecambe Bay. The route starts and finishes at Ford Park,
Ulverston with an inevitable climb to the iconic Sir John Barrow monument
on top of Hoad Hill.
John Healy reports:-
Race Report: Hoad Hill Half Marathon. Firstly, the Lakes are a long way to go for a race,
particularly solo and driving there and back over a weekend. Ulverston where the race
starts and finishes is in the South Lakes not too far from Morecombe Bay. The weekend was
a running festival called The Hoad Hill Festival of 2 Feet and is all based around the
Hoad Hill Monument that sits atop a high point. The Monument itself was bulit in memory of
Sir John Barrow, born locally and the fella that stuck Napoleon into exile. I picked this
race randomly as I needed to get out of London and was in a bit of a running funk. I really
enjoy trail halves, particularly in the Lakes and usually aim for around two hours in these
events depending on fitness and terrain. I drove up on the Saturday after Stuart Bartons
100th PR at Wanstead and camped overnight for £10.00. It is a fairly small local race (only
104 Half marathon runners) with a marathon running 1/2 hour earlier. With a 10.00 am start
there is plenty of time to get organised and prepared with dedicated runner parking (£3.00)
at the base of the monument. The race itself includes a real mix of terrain with road, hills,
trail, beach and forest, a real all rounder with some stunning views of Morecombe Bay, and
also the monument itself that you can see from most of the course. I started steady and
intended to keep it that way so as not to kill myself on the ascents and pretty much stuck
to the plan, as well as keeping the runner in front in view so as not to get lost, for which
I have a habit, taking in the views and enjoying myself. Running with those views in lovely
sunny weather was a real tonic. Unfortunately, it is not actually a half marathon as it ran
13.65 miles, the last mile of which is an ascent and descent to the monument that was really
punishing, particularly when your expecting to finish and have already run 12.5 miles
(Flashbacks of Snowdon). I was on course to sneak in under 2 hrs before i realised the last
bit was mountaineering and that it ran long and got back in about 2.11 proudly sporting my
ELR vest. They had a really strange timing system in that they give you a chip on a lanyard
that you have to click in and out with like an Oyster. This meant that the girl that beat me
by a few seconds (chivalry is not dead ha ha) and I were listed at 40th equal, even though
she crossed the line before me. I hung around to see the first marathoner back, and he came
in about 3.22 to very little fanfare indeed, an amazing time round that course in my opinion.
I think the half was won in about 1.38. The course was very well flag marked with lots of
volunteer marshalls and a couple of good hydration stations at good points. I would recommend
the race if you fancy an adventure, but make it a long weekend. I broke up the drive back with
a roast dinner by the canal in Lancaster, and it took me 6.5 hrs to get back home by which point
id forgotten who I was.
Clapham Common Half Marathon - Sunday 13th August 2017
Scott reports:- Second across the line in a shambolic Clapham half marathon today.
Thanks to some confusing course design and shoddy marshalling, I took a slight wrong
turning on the first lap, and then a big wrong turning on the second, meaning by lap three
I found myself undeservedly in the lead.
I didn't know what to do, I was so angry that this had been allowed to happen, and felt so
guilty about my false position, that it affected my ability to focus on my running. It was
awful. So I decided I'd run past the finish line and do another half lap to try to bring my
distance up to somewhere near the right number (it was actually 12.99 miles, best I could do),
and making sure that the deserving winner won.
I then tried to give the runner up trophy I was given as I crossed the line to the guy who came
third (about three minutes behind), but it turns out he'd went wrong twice on the course too,
so he refused to take it.
Anyway, to cut a long story short: a race to avoid in future.

Andrew reports:- It's a brilliantly organised event, stunning scenery and
a course that's as hard as nails. Had a solid run, starting very slow towards back
of pack as was worried about lack of miles and hills in my legs. But all went ok
apart from a nasty bout of cramp halfway up an evil stepped climb a mile from the end.
Had to go up rest on all fours to get to top to stretch it out. Other than that it was
incident free and I loved every minute of it....really is a special event.

Race report Pride 10k race.
A long walk from Mile End stn, through Victoria Park to probably the furthest point in the park eventually led us to the bag drop, however the start was about a mile back in the direction we'd just come from!! Bags dropped and the obligatory toilet stop Marc and I then made our way to the start, meeting a smiley Katherine Harris along the way.
Just prior to the start line I saw the beaming face of my mum who had turned up by surprise to cheer me on!! What a fantastic welcomed sight!
The race was 3 laps, flat and fast (fast for most people) but as my first race and longest distance since my injury I wasn't all out for a PB.
A packed course for the first mile, unfortunately not helped by those wearing headphones (when instructions said not to) and totally unaware of people trying to pass them but the crowd soon thinned out.
Marshals great and very encouraging, I was passed by the fastest runners at about mile 2, saw Spencer pass me soon followed by Andy calling out as he passed, stopped to give my mum a big sweaty kiss about mile 4 and soon after got caught by Jonathan taking a sneaky breather (damn!) - shouting at me got me moving again but by mile 6 I was struggling. Every footstep was pounding through my poorly arm and so I did walk on and off for a lot of this last mile. I saw Patrick Brown and Mark Boulten on their cool down lap - TWICE- both shouting encouraging words my way which was great!
I managed a sprint finish with Marc and my mum cheering me on and managed to overtake 2 runners who had been in my sights!. Cheers & whoops from strangers as the finish line of my little sprint was in sight felt fab and I'd never encountered it before and although 3mins away from a PB I didn't do too bad.
A well organised event and great bling. A couple of celebratory beers afterwards made for a great event! Oh and now at our local for a couple more!! In the words of Scooter, "It's good to be back!!"

Ricky's Race, Matlock (7km fell race) - Thursday 10th August 2017
|Thomas Grimes||31.03||2nd of 151 finishers.|
Report from Club Captain, Colin Davenport : Matlock AC
The 20th anniversary run of 'Ricky's race' took place on the evening of 10th August,
with 151 runners taking to the start line to be sent on their way by Ricky Wood himself.
Local knowledge and navigational skill certainly played their part, with Matlock's own
Ben Cartwright taking 1st place after a strong showing on the 7km course that takes in
Clough woods and Will Shore's tree on the hillside above Darley Bridge. Thomas Grimes
of East London runners took 2nd place, with Paul Sorrell of Ripley taking 3rd place
and the male Vet 40 prize. For the ladies, Beth Pascall led the way, with Lucy Taylor
(Ripley) and Ruth Keeley (Belper Harriers) shortly behind.

Jessica Trayler-Moore - I just wanted to say thanks for your support on my first
club run this morning. I passed a man wearing a 'running sucks' T-shirt towards the
end of the race and thought how laughably wrong he is as I approached the cheering
sea of red at the finish line. Thanks guys. I had a lovely first Elvis.
Anna Dingle - I just wanted to say thank you to all of the East London Runners today who
made me feel very welcome and at ease when taking part in my first race at the ELVIS
Forest 5 today. I really enjoyed the run; the ups and the downs; and the cheering at the end.
I loved it. Hopefully the first of many races.

Twilight Marathon (including 50k Ultra and Half Marathon) - Saturday 29th July 2017
|Michael Wilson||4.07.05||8th, 1st MVet 55|
Michael reports:- Yesterday afternoon Kirk Johnson and myself Run in the Twilight Marathon at Redbridge Cycle Centre, Hainault. I was looking for a different challenge this time and was pleased to have Kirk for company as well. A sub 4 hours was never on the cards for me due to the difficulty of the course, but I was very happy with 4.07.06 tbc. (Last year I ran 2.05 for the half, so there has been improvement).
All credit to Kirk who only fairly recently returned to running and his only preparation in his words, was the Hilly 5 race (and Wednesday Club runs). He finished in 5.58.43 and wanted to run some extra laps at the end, but the organisers wouldn't let him as they were starting to pack up! He should have started in the 50k which was at 10.00am. There was almost constant rain and the hill was horrendous, but it was great fun. You don't have to be crazy to be a runner, but it helps!

Janet Bywater:- Hey, you must check out swim run events, they are totally awesome. I did one in the
Lake District this weekend, 3.4km swimming and 15 km running, in and out of the water 6 times. You run in your wetsuit and
swim in your trainers. It's both brilliant and bonkers at the same time. Check out Love Swimrun or Breca events. J

Katherine Harris:- My report of the Spitfire Scramble. What an amazing experience! I loved it, it far exceeded all my expectations. The atmosphere in camp was so chilled and fun with lots of familiar faces from ELVIS and parkrun. I had such a blast. I was part of a fantastic team and with Jason coordinating us and retiming our handovers when we were running an hour and 40 minutes ahead of schedule ensured we all knew roughly what times we were up and kept things running smoothly.
Stuart and Dave/Pixie set up camp with us and were a very welcome addition to the team (particularly Dave, sorry Stuart but she is just so cute!). So lovely to see Jo and Jonathan as well when they came to visit and support us. ELR really is the best.
Thank you to Jonathan for dragging me around my fifth lap and whilst I do blame you for me finally breaking down on my final lap it was great to have your company on this lap (although the fly you swallowed probably wouldn't agree).
24 hour food, massages and support on site. A really well organised event.
If anyone has doubts and is unsure about trying this event, I say do it. A fun but challenging weekend. I will most definitely be back.
Results:- ELR/Drax 6th of the Mixed 3-5 teams. 25 laps
Julie Creffield 7 laps.

Ware 10km - Sunday 9th July 2017
Southend Half Marathon - Sunday 9th July 2017
Andy B reports:- Southend Half
This was my second time doing this race. I wanted a half as part of my prep for Berlin in September. It's a cheap, well organised race so an obvious choice.
All week I have been melting in this heat. I seriously dont do well in heat, but the forecast was cloudy and 21 degrees. The forecast was wrong.
Catriona Davies and I got to the start as the second wave just started ( the queues into the car park are long and slow). We saw Marc Akers and Joanna Wood , said our hellos and off we went. By the time we got to the seafront the sun was out in full effect. The majority of the race is 2 laps along the seafront so you get to see people as you double back. Marc was looking strong and pasted me about 6 1/2 miles in. It was getting too hot for me and I needed lots of speed walk breaks to keep at it and drink water that was provided in cups. I walked for 0.2 miles then run for at least another. The organisers had loads of sponges available which is a great touch and one I which I wish more would do. At 11 miles you leave the seafront and take a detour through a nature reserve, where I saw Marc again, turn a corner and you're finished. They name check everyone on the p.a as you approach!
The support and organisation along the way is very good (although cups of water !!). I finished drenched from continually trying to cool myself down. My time was my worst since joining ELR but I am not too worried as the weather was brutal and oppressive. I do need to find a way to deal with the heat though. Looking forward to the shade of the Hilly 5 on Wednesday.
Joanna reports:- - Southend half marathon race report - HOT.
Having spent the week demoralised about my Newham 10k last week and all the work Marc & Jason had put in with me I tried to take a different approach to todays race. I still felt pressure leading up to it (only from myself and no one else), so much so that I told my family I didnt want them to come along as I knew I wouldnt do a good time and felt I'd be letting them down going all that way for what I felt would be a bad performance. They were sad I felt like that but promised a celebratory pint once back home - regardless of my time I'm a champ to them!!
So at the start line I was with Marc (my chauffeur for today) and just managed to say Hi to Andy and Cat before we were off. Already it was heating up.
First half went well and only 1 min away from my 10k PB which I was pleased with but then the heat kicked in and I started to wilt - Marc was passing me in the opposite direction on part of the 2 lap course and I could just about muster "I'm stuffed!". So I decided to slow down and try to enjoy the people and scenery. I was able to chat to a few runners as we kept catching each other up and then slowing down - and that's an achievement in itself as anyone who's run with me knows I can't run, breath AND talk!! I'm very mono-sylabic when running and not much fun!
The sun just didnt let up (my Rudolph nose is testament to that) but with so many water stations and fantastic marshals sponging us down it certainly helped.
The last 3miles seemed to take an eternity - did i say it was hot??? But I made it. Marc was a welcomed sight on the finish line and Andy & Cat who had finished much earlier were also there which was really nice!!
Group pic and obligatory grumbles about the heat exchanged!!
My time? Hmmm a hot 2.33 hrs not a PB but it WAS a course PB as it was over 10mins faster than last year - AND HOTTER!!
I think I might have actually enjoyed a race for once and to be honest for someone who did a Race for Life a couple of years ago and never intended to run again I've got to think of the positives. Attached is a pic I've not shared before - I wasn't at my biggest (as I used to avoid photo opportunities at ALL costs) but to see the difference between then and now, regardless of times, I think I'm doing ok.
Anyway the month is not over and efforts are still underway for me to try and achieve a PB so watch this space....

Essex Cross Country Series - Thornton Park - Saturday 8th July 2017
|Julie Campbell||56.35||84th, 17th lady 1st V55|
2nd race for me in this series. On trail paths, some quite rough with large stones. Fairly undulating, 479 feet of climbing, with one steepish hill that outwitted me, so I walked.... twice. Warm conditions, but thankfully shady in many places. Will do this again to improve my time. Bit slow... but I was the fastest woman in my age category! In fact I'm so old, I was the only woman in my category. Lol. Anyway, I'm not going to beat myself up too much, because I would have had the 3rd best time if I was in the 45-54 year olds. Plus it was a hilly run. Last 2 miles were getting faster as it was mostly downhill. The sting in the tail is that the finishing straight was uphill. If you enjoy cross country, this is definitely one to look out for next year.
Mens Health Survival of the Fittest OCR, Wembley - Saturday 8th July 2017

Last race in my league season so hopefully pushed up the table to finish strong!
Now 8 weeks to rest my battered ankle before 20+ miles up and down Snowdon...

Today I ran 6.22 miles in shadow of the Olympic Stadium. There wasnt any shade though. And I walked the hills. My wheezing was so loud a stranger offered me his water with a worried look at 3k... I blame that Louis Le Roux. Id spotted him running his wave as we crossed the bridge to our start and I used the last of my dying vocal cords to shout out his name. (He heard me. I have standards, dying voice or not)
Seeing Julie was ace - you looked strong coming up that hill Julie! And I spotted the lovely Cara Walls at the velodrome, your first ever 10k Cara, and in a really good time too - you are going to rock the GNR. Maddie West spotted me as she passed looking Daisy Fresh at 3.5k - it was ace to see you Madge - next time we need prosecco and heels please, not sweat and trainers.
I shared a shower with Don Bennett, not many can boast that, and I crossed the finish line with him and the Ever Smiling Sonia.
That race beats me every time. Its hot, its relentless and its hard work. But I keep going back. Because its the Olympic Park, and its local, and the atmosphere so fantastic. And one day, Ill kick its arse.
Jan Webb:- Ill definitely do this one again but the heat was phenomenal. If only we had had yesterdays weather I wouldnt have felt quite so light-headed at the end. Thanks to Sandra & Sonia who stretched and strolled with me afterwards. Lovely to be an Angel with Maya for Don (Mrs Dons chocolate brownies are to die for) and to yack with Stuart, Joanna (your Ma & Pa are terrific) CiarÃ¡n and Lance. X
Samia:- Luckily Im slow and Shahib is fast, so he could run and I take care of baby with enough time to swap and start running myself with my twin!
Completed the Great Newham Run with my best friend by my side and husband cheering me!

Maya's report:- Cough cough. Oh I'm so annoying.
But the cough won't go and so I'll make it come with me instead. I signed up for the Forest Five this week, fresh with Colworth glow.
The 2014 ELVIS Forest 5 was my first race in a club vest. I do love this race, it's so pretty. But I'm idle. A respectable 51:19 my first year, and then 57:07 and 60:13. A hill gives me an excuse to walk. Hmmm.
Anyway. I knew this would be a tougher field as it's not an ELVIS, so more chance of being last. On Wednesday night, the mighty Karen Levison offered to run with me. An injured Achilles meant she needed to take it easy. 'But no walking Maya, ok? I mean it.' Cor blimey. Well it's not often you get the chance to run a race with one of the greats. I was terrified and delighted in equal measure. And then this morning, Frank Brownlie said he'd be running with us too. So we are at the start. I take up my normal position, lingering at the back. I figure I always end up there anyway, at least this way I'm not underfoot. Karen looks agitated. 'Really Maya? Right at the back? Come on. Let's get up there with the others at least!' And so we wriggle in. And we're off.
No where to hide Maya. Stop coughing, no one cares. Just focus on your breathing and keep going. And don't even consider stopping - you just can't. Frank and Karen chatted to each other. I listened. No talking. I was concentrating too hard on not letting my breathing get panicked. If that happened I was sunk. Breathe in, breathe out, don't cough.
The first hill wasn't as long as I remembered, I didn't walk! I was dead proud of myself. The second hill was steeper than I remembered. I did walk a few meters. But I kept my strides long and kept up a running pace. We'd caught up some Dagenham 88ers going up the hill, I was pleased. But then they sped away on the flat. Karen and Frank kept telling each other how much they loved this last mile, how pretty it was and how it was a down incline. They weren't wrong - it was pretty - and it was down. But I couldn't enjoy it, cos I KNEW what was at the end, and I was broken.
Anyway. We finally got to that last uphill. I knew it was nearly the end, but I just couldn't find the energy to run up it. I walked a bit, and lovely Karen tapped me on the back. 'Come on Maya, it's just twice round the track now. Visualise it' I tried. But all I could see was uphill. And then the down, and then the last stretch, and I'm finished. Frank and Karen graciously get me come in before them, and I stole all their cheers too ðŸ˜„ 56:18. My second fastest time, and something to aim for for ELVIS. I'm dead chuffed.
In retrospect, I think I let that hill beat me before I'd even got to it. I worried about how I'd get up it so much I didn't enjoy that last half mile through the forest. And it also just goes to show, though, I can do much more than I think. I would have let myself walk so many times, but knew I couldn't because Frank and Karen were there. I just need to work out how to ring them as a hologram to flank me at every ELVIS now!
Thank you both so much xx
