New Kit

SHAFTESBURY BARNET HARRIERS NEW KIT – Following a series of consultation with various Team Managers and Athletes, we have now decided on what we believe to be a smart and hard wearing kit. Each item will have ‘Shaftesbury Barnet Harriers’ on the back, we are also hoping to have our name on the leggings and track suit bottoms.
Release date will be advised shortly, including costs.

The first photograph shows HAMZA KADIR who is holding the PETER COE trophy for Under 17 Men, which he won at the BMC Grand Prix in Oxford on 23 July 2016. HAMZA won in a personal best (4:18.07) which moved him up to UK No.1 U17, in 2nd place was RICKY LUTAKOME of Sutton who was the UK No.1 at the time. HAMZA is wearing a new T shirt.

3 NEW CLUB RECORDCongratulations to MIA GROOMCRISTINA POTTER and TARIQ WILD who achieved a club record over the week-end.
MIA competed at last Saturday’s BMC meeting in the 1500m Steeplechase running (5:18.11) taking 8.19 seconds off her 28 May time, ranking her UK No.5 in 2017. MIA’S time eclipses SOPHIA PARVIZI-WAYNE’S Under 17 Women’s time of (5:21.6) set in Derby on 9 September 2012. Also, is a Hertfordshire record (to be confirmed) which was set by our own LUCY YATES (5:25.0) set in 2006.
CRISTINA broke the Under 17 Women’s 500g Javelin record with a throw of (35.72m) at last Sunday’s EYAL fixture in Luton. CRISTINA’S distance eclipses KLAUDIA DEBRECZENI throw of (33.70m) set at Lee Valley on 16 May 2015.
TARIQ also at the EYAL fixture broke the Under 15 Boys 300m record in a time of (37.7) eclipsing NAJIBE ARBI’S (37.9) set at Allianz Park on 11 June 2016.

BRITISH ATHLETICS LEAGUE – The second match of the season took place at Lee Valley last Saturday. A much better day at the office last Saturday at Lee Valley saw SBH bounce back from their disappointing 5th = in Round One of the BAL in Sheffield to secure a clear 2nd place in Round Two. After 2 rounds the men’s team are now in the top 4.

CONFIDENCE LAWSON had an up and down day, winning the 100m “A” in a quality field and then found himself DQ for running out of his lane in the 200m “A” after finishing strongly in 3rd place. Our young 400m pairing of SAM HAZELL and MATTHEW PAGAN both ran really well with a PB for SAM and an SB for MATTHEW. The 1500m was a great race with the first 6 home all running under 3.52. KYLE LANGFORD was pipped on the line but was rewarded with an impressive new PB whilst JACK CRABTREE ran a really mature race to run a SB for victory in the “B”. It was good to see RICHARD GOODMAN and KOJO KYEREME flying the flag with top 3 finishes in the 5000m. An inspired 4 x 100m team was thrown together at the last minute and greatly exceeded expectations with their 3rd place. Overall, special mention on the track for JAMES DAVIS (U20) who gap filled at the last minute in the 400m Hurdles and the 3000m Steeplechase when the original selections dropped out on the Friday with illness and injury.

However, it was the field squad that was awesome. The Triple Jump provided a unique result with SBH taking the top 3 spots, not only did NONSO OKOLO win the “A” and DANIEL LEWIS win the “B” but our guest athlete JAMES MCLACHLAN performed better than everyone else from the other clubs. We also had the current British number one and World Championship qualifier NATHAN FOX watching from the side-lines. The High Jump was equally exciting with DAVID SMITH taking the “A”, ALLAN SMITH taking the “B” with our guest jumper MONTEZ BLAIR equalling ALLAN’s performance. Our Discus throwers were equally dominant with both ZANE DUQUEMIN and ANGUS MCINROY winning the “A” and “B” respectively by nearly 6m. STEVE TURNOCK was in a class of his own winning the javelin competition by over 5m and DANIEL BAINBRIDGE (U20) in his BAL debut securing 3rd place in the “B”. In the Shot, MICHALIS STAMATOGIANNIS survived a minor back injury in warm-up but still managed 2nd place. The team faced frustration in the Hammer with our top 6 throwers being unavailable. Hopefully our 2 top men, CHRIS BENNETT and DEMPSEY MCGUIGAN should turn a double 8th this time into a double 1st at the nest match.

The 3rd round of the BAL on Saturday 15 July at Bedford will be a unique experience with the meeting hosting all 5 divisions at an all-day extravaganza of club athletics.

UK YOUTH DEVELOPMENT LEAGUE SOUTHERN PREMIER 1  Took place last Sunday in Bromley. We had an excellent day with a number of athletes stepping in at the last minute to score a point and at the end of the day, that was the difference which secured SBH 2nd place ahead of Windsor by just 3.5 points, out of a total of 710.

There were many outstanding performances, far too many to mention individually however, in my view, I would highlight, HANNAH FOSTER with her double PB victories in the U17 300m Hurdles (44.28) and 200m (24.98). SOPHIE MADDOCK who won the U17 800m running from the front during a heavy thunderstorm in a PB of 2.15.87, an improvement of nearly 5 seconds and a 55 place move up the national rankings. The women’s U17 4 x 100m relay team of LATIFAH HARRIS-OSMAN, SOPHIA OBI, KIERRA GRANT, CHINWE IWUNZE who not only won the race but were just 0.1 outside the club record with 49.94.

The return from injury of MATTHEW PAGAN saw him win the 400m in 48.30. The amazing points accumulation by GEORGE EVANS in the HT, SP, JT and DT and by BILLY PRAIM-SINGH in the HT, SP and JT. DAVID STONE with a 27 second improvement in his 3000m time to 9.05.28 and a 68 place move up the rankings. Last but not least the fantastic performances in the men’s double victories in the U17 4 x 100m and 4 x 400m relays. The sprint squad of MICAH AGYEPONG, MICHAEL ADEBAKIN, JOSH KUMAR, ROBERT THOMAS ran 44.46 just 5/100th outside the club record and improved to number 4 in this year’s rankings. The 4 x 400m squad of NAJIBE ARBE (53.2), JOSHUA KUMAR (52.0), MITTIO MOHAMMADIAN (53.1), ANTHONY KHORASSANJIAN (52.8) were even more impressive, with the fastest time of the year in the UK of 3.31.04.
The third round of the YDL is on Sunday 25 June in Reading with the final round at Allianz Park on Sunday 23 July.

TIME IS SQUEEZED FOR JUMPS ATTEMPTS  The IAAF is halving the amount of time that High Jumpers and Pole Vaulters have to take their attempt from 60 to 30 seconds. The rule change was agreed at the IAAF recent council meeting in London and will be introduced from 1 November.
Not surprisingly athletes have reacted with mild outrage, though SANDI MORRIS, the Olympic pole vault silver medallist from the United States, said “This is a terrible decision. Not only dangerous, but bad for track and field”.
She added; More time equals less sport for fans to watch… it’s unsafe and unnecessary”.
The amount of time that vaulters and high jumpers have to take their attempt when there are fewer than three competitors left in the contest remains the same.

VACANCIES AT LEE VALLEY ATHLETICS CENTRE  The Centre is looking for additional casual staff to take them through the summer and into next winter. The job involves setting up and down for events, coaching on kid’s sessions and cleaning, whilst in time those with the right abilities will get trained up to work on Reception as well. Rate of pay is £10.06 per hour.
They are looking for people with a passion for Athletics, a love of hard work and a keen interest in coaching children (preferably but not necessarily holding a minimum of an Athletics Assistant Coach award). Anyone interested should contact MICK to express their interest by e mailing me on mbond@vibrantpartnerships.co.uk

LONDON WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP 10,000m TRIALS – Took place last Saturday at Parliament Hill, which included many Shaftesbury runners. Congratulations to BETH POTTER who ran away from the field to win the Women’s trial race in a time of (32:04.63) which was just under a second off last year’s personal best time, ranking her as UK No.1 in 2017, and BETH will now look forward the 10,000m heats in London on Saturday 5 August. In the B Race VICTORIA WALKER finished 26th in a personal best (38:51.71).

BETH commented afterwards: “Last year, I felt like I was getting chased down but tonight I was getting stronger and stronger. I wasn’t surprised, I’m running well – my sessions were going great but I hadn’t raced (on the track) since Rio so I didn’t know.
“I’m just going to carry on with what I’m doing (the triathlon training) – it’s working, I’m improving in the tri and in the running, so there’s no point in changing anything at the moment. I run about 30-miles a week less now, I’m only in the mid-50’s but I’m getting my aerobic work from the biking and the pool as well, so my legs are fresh – win-win!
“I came here with no pressure and it was good to have a battle with STEPH – it’s nice to come away with number one this time after finishing twice before. I was smiling and grinning, looking at my coach and thinking ‘this is good!’.”

In the Men’s A race RICHARD HORTON finished 19th in a personal best (29:38.55) his only previous race was back in 2012 (31:10.06), next was PHILLIP CROUT U23 in his first 10,000m race also breaking the 30-minute barrier finishing 25th (29:55.01) and is ranked UK No.4 U23 in 2017, finally JAKE SHELLEY finished 34th in a season’s best (31:18.48). In the B Race KOJO KYEREME V40 finished 6th in a season’s best (30:23.08) ranking his UK No.1 V40 in 2017, D Race MARK PEARCE U23 finished 28th in a season’s best (34:36.41)

LOUGHBOROUGH INTERNATIONAL MEETING – Took place last Sunday in Loughborough.

SEB COE’S DOUBLE DOSE OF MUD – The following was published on the Athletics Weekly website recently.

The IAAF president reflects on the racing he used to do as a young athlete, which sometimes included two cross country competitions in one day
SEB says he sometimes did two cross country races in the same day as a teenager. He raced once for his school and then for his club and he believes it gave him a huge physical advantage over rivals although, he adds, “it would not be allowed today”.
The two-time Olympic gold medallist does not particularly endorse the idea, but it did not seem to do him any harm and he remembers: “I used to run 30-40 cross country races a year – very often one on Wednesday and another at the weekend.
“Sometimes I did one on Saturday morning for the school and then Saturday afternoon for the club and you’d never been allowed to do that nowadays.
“I had a massive physical advantage over other athletes who didn’t do cross country.”
The IAAF president adds: “It’s a mental thing too. “If you run 3-5 miles across that kind of terrain in Yorkshire on the side of escarpments in places like Halifax and Batley and Huddersfield and the edges of Sheffield it gave you a massive physical advantage over kids who were not doing cross country.
“If you run cross country as a 16-17-year-old, there’s nothing much that will spook you physically on the track.”
He continues: “I believe with the problems we’ve had in European distance running that it’s not remotely coincidental that we’ve lost a generation of coaches who do not believe cross country is important.

TWO DAYS FOR BRITISH TRIALS – The traditional Friday night at the National championships will not happen this year after a decision to turn the British Athletics Team Trials into a two-day event on Saturday & Sunday 1-2 July.
The old AAA Championships once saw a world 10,000m record by DAVID BEDFORD on the Friday evening at Crystal Palace, but nowadays the 25-lap event has been moved to Parliament Hill in May and the usual wave of heats for events like 100m, 400m and 800m will be incorporated into the two-day programme.

NEW GB TEAM KIT UNVEILED – The Great Britain kit for the “Summer of World Athletics” has been unveiled by British Athletics.

To be worn for the first time by athletes competing at the World Para Athletics Championships and IAAF World Championships in July and August respectively, the new Nike Vapor kits “are designed to enhance overall human potential for speed and at the same time address the specificities of each athlete and event”.
The vests and t-shirts feature the words ‘Great Britain’ in red writing and are mostly white with blue design on the body and shoulders.
The British Athletics logo also appears on the tops, while the blue shorts and leggings feature the British flag.

ALLIANZ PARK TO HOST BEER MILE AGAIN – British miler is training to take down Canadian COREY BELLEMORE’S world record


One of the biggest clashes of the summer is set to take place on August 12 in London. Not at the IAAF World Championships, though, but on the other side of the British capital at ALLIANZ PARK – the venue of the 2017 Beer Mile World Classic.
The crazy combination of athletics and alcohol produces an entertaining cocktail of a competition. It has caught the imagination of the running world in recent years and some of the world’s finest gastric gladiators will be at ALLIANZ PARK on the final weekend of the IAAF World Championships to run, drink and occasionally vomit as they compete for bragging rights in one of the most bizarre – and increasingly popular – off-shoots of track and field.
Yet all eyes will be on two men – COREY BELLEMORE of Canada and DALE CLUTTERBUCK of Britain.
Last year Bellemore coasted to victory in a world record 4:34.35 with Clutterbuck runner-up in a European record of 4:47.39. But Clutterbuck went into the race unprepared at the end of a poor track season. He only found out he was doing the 2016 race a couple of days earlier and he even knocked back a few drinks before the race ‘to warm up’.
This year, however, he is training for the event with fellow international runner BEN COLDRAY. The pair are doing a weekly interval session where their recovery period includes downing a bottle of beer and they have been recording their progress on YouTube.
“People might think this is nuts and I’ve gone mad, but there’s a bigger picture,” says CLUTTERBUCK. “I’d love to qualify for the Commonwealth Games next year and if this helps me get a bit of sponsorship so I can train harder, then it will have been worth it.”
BELLEMORE was signed by Adidas after his beer mile triumph 12 months ago while the previous world record-holder, LEWIS KENT of Canada, earned a similar deal with Brooks.
“Ultimately it’s just a few beers and a bit of fun with a friend, BEN, once a week,” CLUTTERBUCK continues. “It won’t do me any harm and I still plan to be competitive at events like the British Champs this summer.”
While Canada and the United States has dominated the beer mile record books recently, Britain has a good tradition. CHRIS PARR of Gateshead Harriers, for example, was considered almost invincible in the ‘Chunder Mile’ – a more difficult variation of beer miling where proper pints are consumed.
CLUTTERBUCK believes a beer mile in four-and-a-half minutes is roughly equivalent to a sub-four-minute mile in ‘normal athletics’ and he adds: “The sport needs to be livened up. I go to some meetings and they’re pretty boring. The gun goes, you race and that’s it, you go home.

VACANCIES AT LEE VALLEY ATHLETICS CENTRE  The Centre is looking for additional casual staff to take them through the summer and into next winter. The job involves setting up and down for events, coaching on kid’s sessions and cleaning, whilst in time those with the right abilities will get trained up to work on Reception as well. Rate of pay is £10.06 per hour.
They are looking for people with a passion for Athletics, a love of hard work and a keen interest in coaching children (preferably but not necessarily holding a minimum of an Athletics Assistant Coach award). Anyone interested should contact MICK to express their interest by e mailing me on mbond@vibrantpartnerships.co.uk

WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP TRIALS – Eight Olympians are set to compete at the event at Parliament Hill, which incorporates the GB IAAF World Championships trials.

BETH POTTER (SBH), JO PAVEY and ANDY VERNON are among the eight Olympians to have been announced for the Highgate Harriers Night of the 10,000m PBs on Saturday May 20.
The event, which is free to spectate and combines top-quality racing with a unique crowd experience, will again incorporate the British 10,000m Championships, with the Parliament Hill track also playing host to those looking to make the GB team for the IAAF World Championships in London this summer.
Five-time Olympian PAVEY features along with reigning British champion JESSICA MARTINSONIA SAMUELS and Portugal’s JESSICA AUGUSTO are in the women’s entry list. In the men’s entries, Rio 2016 Olympian VERNON is joined by ROSS MILLINGTON, who won the GB Olympic trial race at Parliament Hill last year, plus Irish marathoner PAUL POLLOCK.
Others in action are set to be KATE AVERY, the double European cross-country runner-up who was fourth in the 2014 Commonwealth Games and has 31:45.44 PB. She ran 32:11.84 last year but has only raced once since last June. KATRINA WOOTTON has been the leading Briton in her last two 10km races at Brighton and Birmingham and can boast a 31:46 road PB, while ELINOR KIRK, who was ninth in the 2014 Commonwealth Games, has one of the fastest PBs in the field with 32:17.05.
Louise Small, who was first Brit at the World Cross in 39th place, has a 33:50.63 PB and ran 34:01.90 last year, while JENNIFER NESBITT ran 33:45.19 last year and a 74:26 clocking in the Reading Half Marathon suggests she is in good form.
DEWI GRIFFITTHS, who was fifth in the 2016 Europeans, ran a time of 28:16.07 last week, while Luke Caldwell, who has a 28:29.61 PB, was 14th in the 2014 Commonwealth Games. BEN CONNOR ran 29:21.47 for fifth last year but the National cross country champion has greatly improved this winter.
The full current men’s entry list can be found here, while the women’s list is here.
The top two eligible athletes in each World Championships trial race will automatically be selected for the GB team for the event in London this summer, provided they also achieve the qualifying standard of 27:45 for men or 32:15 for women by midnight on July 9.
The volunteer-powered “annual 10,000m festival” at Parliament Hill invites spectators to embrace “#Lane3BeerNCheer”, with refreshments available on the track and fans able to watch the action up close from lane three.
This year’s event will also feature an endurance seminar in among the series of 10,000m races, with IAAF president SEB COE and world marathon record-holder PAULA RADCLIFFE among the speakers, and snooker legend RONNIE O’SULLIVAN, who is a keen runner, acting as host.
The event gets under way with an inter-schools relay at 13:30 before race one at 15:15 through to the men’s GB trial race at 20:15 and the women’s at 21:00. The endurance seminar is scheduled for 18:30.

BE AWARE WHEN BUYING HAYFEVER REMEDIES AND OTHER MEDICATION – The summer sees a number of athletes being affected by hayfever. As with all medication please remember off-the-shelf and over-the-counter remedies may contain PROHIBITED substances.  Make sure you and any athletes you coach know how to check before they buy.
To find out more please see www.britishathletics.org.uk/cleanathletics/check-your-medication.

100%ME CLEAN SPORT APP – Another very useful way to ensure you and athletes you support are fully aware of the latest anti-doping information is to use the 100%me Clean Sport App. This App is available to download via iTunes, Googleplay or the Windows Store and provides athletes, coaches and athlete support personnel with essential information on-the-go to help them participate in doping-free sport.
The App, which can be customised for your sport, provides clear and concise anti-doping advice, guidance and updates to ensure you can be clean and stay clean wherever you are training or competing.


If you need to check your medication, learn more about the risks with supplements, or simply understand more about the testing procedures and your rights as an athlete, the App is the place to start.
UK Anti-Doping (UKAD) ensures the App is always up-to-date and will send out alerts to inform you if anything important has changed. That means if a new substance is added to the WADA Prohibited List or a deadline is approaching for Whereabouts submissions, you will be the first to know.
Other features include the ability to record and store information about your medications for doping control, plus directly access the Report Doping in Sport online form.
More information on this handy App can be found here www.britishathletics.org.uk/cleanathletics/clean-sport-app/

BRITISH ATHLETICS LEAGUE – The first match of the season took place in Sheffield last Saturday.
A cold and blustery day greeted all 8 teams for Round One of the BAL Premiership in Sheffield. SBH were in good spirits even though the team had been weakened by injury, illness, warm weather training and conflicting meetings. The match started well with top class performances in the 400m Hurdles from SEB RODGER and a welcome return from injury by LLOYD HANLEY-BYRON.
The Hammer was always going to be tough with our top 4 throwers either in the US or unavailable, so it was left to JAMES HAMBLIN, making his Premiership debut to fly the flag with a throw just a metre short of his PB. SBH once more dominated the Discus with double wins for ZANE DUQUEMIN and ANGUS MCINROY. While the Javelin saw STEVE TURNOCK maintain his good recent form.
JAMES MCLACHLAN showed a welcome return to form with convincing wins in both the long and triple jumps, ably supported by NONSO OKOLO in the TJ. Another new member, MONTEZ BLAIR, the BUCS champion, was making his debut in the HJ in the trickiest of conditions. This was another event where 4 of our top jumpers were not available, but DAN BRAMBLE stepped in at the last moment and cleared a PB of 1.90m and promised to have a HJ training session as he wants to clear 2m. The PV was equally difficult, where we welcomed new U20 member ROSS HADJIPANAYI who was a late addition to the team.
Endurance was badly hit but nevertheless there were a number of highlights. ANTHONY WHITEMAN running a SB in the 800m which was a British and World V45 age group record. After the race, an excited Anthony was confident that he would get the time down to sub 1.50 in better conditions. MO MOHAMED was another late addition to the team and proved he was back from injury with a PB after 4 years of disappointment. Another welcome return was from GLEN WATTS after the disruptions of becoming a new father with the minimum of training still managed to complete both the 3k chase and the 3k flat where JACK CRABTREE had a fine race for 2nd place.
Unfortunately, it was now that bad luck struck the team. ANDREW LAWLER was running well in the 3k chase when he slipped coming out of the water jump and not only appeared to have broken his ankle but then had his hand spiked by the following runner when he fell. Thanks to the prompt attention of club physio, KYLE ANDREW and his wife LAUREN, who took ANDREW to the A&E Department at the Northern General Hospital, he was eventually diagnosed with badly torn ligaments and had a number of stitches in his hand wound. MO MOHAMED was the next casualty, twisting his ankle whilst warming up for the 1500m and missing the race. Finally, GERALD MATTHEW, after winning the “A” string 200m was running 3rd leg in the 4 x 100m with the team well ahead when he pulled up with a hamstring injury but still managed to hobble the last 10m to hand the baton on to DAN BRAMBLE who brought the team home in 8th place. The team dropped from 3rd to 5th equal but confident that so much bad luck could not strike again and that there will be a much better performance in Round 2 on Saturday 3 June at Lee Valley.

BETHAN REES her philosophy on training

EASTERN YOUNG ATHLETICS LEAGUE – The first match of the season took place in Watford last Sunday.

What an astonishing start to the season with our Young Athletes finishing only 15 points behind last year’s Champions. I believe it would be unfair to single out any Individual, as the turnout and performance was exceptional, which included so many of this Year’s new members.

The next fixture is on 4 June at Luton, where we are up against Basildon, Biggleswade, Havering, Luton, Norwich and Peterborough.

Team Result – 1st Bedford & County (781 points), 2nd SBH (766), 3rd Woodford Green with Essex Ladies (626.5), 4th Watford (622), 5th Braintree (311), 6th Hertford & Ware/Enfield & Haringey (170.5), 7th Biggleswade (167).

WORLD RECORD FOR 2018 VIRGIN MONEY LONDON MARATHON – A 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 Friday 5 May. This is the highest number of applicants for any marathon in the world.
327,516 of those applicants were from the UK. This is 73,586 up from the previous UK applicant record of 253,930 for the 2017 event – an increase of nearly 29%. A total of 58,534 people applied in the overseas ballot.
Just over 58% of the UK applications for 2018 were from people who have never run a marathon and more than 45% of the total UK applicants were women (also a new record).
“These record-breaking numbers reflect the huge success of the 37th London Marathon on 23 April,” said Hugh Brasher, Event Director for London Marathon Events. “One of our goals is to inspire people to take up sport and 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.

ATTEMPT AT SUB-2 HOUR MARATHON  At 05:45 local time (04:45 BST) last Saturday, LEILISA DESISA, ZERSENAY TADESE and ELIUD KIPCHOGE stepped on to a famous motor racing track in Italy and attempt to do something that many believe could forever be beyond the scope of human capability.


Their goal has nothing to do with fast cars, however – this will all be about fast feet and the small matter of attempting to run a marathon in under two hours.
It’s undeniable that the odds are currently stacked against success when it comes to this marathon ambition. The hard facts behind what is required to cover 26.2 miles in less than 120 minutes take a while to comprehend.
The current marathon world record stands at 2 hours, 2 minutes and 57 seconds – set by Kenya’s DENNIS KIMETTO at the Berlin Marathon in 2014, his average pace for that run was 4:41 per mile. To run 1:59:59 involves an average pace of approximately 4:35. That would mean an improvement of roughly 2.5 per cent.
Yet Nike were determined to find out if it can be done or, at the very least, how close it is possible to get to the landmark time. They are not the only company to have such an ambition – Adidas have their own designs on being first past this post while there is also the sub2hr project headed by Professor YANNIS PITSILADIS of the University of Brighton and involving KENENISA BEKELE – but the American sportwear giants will be the first to officially have a go. They have used the considerable resources at their disposal to examine every single aspect of what it might take to get the sub-two-hour job done. “The hard facts behind what is required to cover 26.2 miles in less than 120 minutes take a while to comprehend”
There was the recruitment of the athletes they thought best equipped to handle the task at hand. Kenya’s KIPCHOGE, who has a PB of 2:03:05, is also the Olympic champion and arguably the finest marathon runner there has ever been. Ethiopian DESISA is a two-time Boston Marathon winner while Eritrean TADESE is the current world half-marathon record-holder with a time of 58:23.
Their training, nutrition and recovery patterns have been pored over forensically with the aim of squeezing every drop of a performance out of them. The involvement of pacemakers, drafting and energy conservation will play a hugely significant part, too. And then there are the shoes. Many would argue this is the whole reason why Nike got involved in the first place – as a publicity stunt designed to shift more products.
The marathon course at Monza, not far from Milan, is very much out of the ordinary, too. The runners will cover just over 17.5 laps of a 2.4km circuit which has also been designed to maximise speed – the appliance of science is everywhere. And it’s that contrived nature of such an experiment which concerns the more sceptical observers.
“It’s got positive elements and negative elements,” says Athletics Weekly columnist Tim Hutchings, former Olympian and a man immersed in world distance running through his job as an athletics commentator. “I think all top athletes train hard to achieve a permanence in competition and win titles, win medals and break records. “Competition is the unifying element I think of all sport, particularly in athletics and distance racing. When that unifying, element gets compromised by commercial ambition or a third party’s infatuation with an alternative goal, like the sub-2, then it’s quite regrettable.”
Hutchings adds: “The whole thing in Monza is very contrived. This is not a legitimate record attempt for a number of reasons – it’s just a scientific experiment. It’s too plastic, it’s not real.” There is no doubt that going under two hours splits opinion massively. For every sceptic, there is someone absolutely fascinated by this particular pursuit and wondering just where it might lead.

SUB-2 HOUR MARATHON OUTCOME  Showing remarkable strength both in body and mind, ELIUD KIPCHOGE proved on Saturday morning that a sub-two-hour marathon might be a lot closer than some may have originally thought.


Clocking 2:00:25 for 26.2 miles in a controversial ‘Breaking2’ event organised by sportswear giant Nike in an attempt to breach the barrier, the Olympic champion further reinforced his position as arguably the finest marathon runner of all time.
While Kipchoge’s time, set on a Formula One track in Monza in Italy, won’t count as an official world record, it does go some way to further proving what the human body is capable of.

Starting out toward the back of an arrow formation of pacers, KIPCHOGE was joined by world half-marathon record-holder TADESE and two-time Boston Marathon winner DESISA.
Their first 5km split was timed at 14:14 as they aimed for 14:10, but the group picked up the pace soon afterwards and there was a projected finish time of 1:59:56 at that point.
They went through 10km in 28:21, 15km in 42:34 and 20km in 56:49, before the halfway point was reached in 59:57. Not long after this, the attempt relied on KIPCHOGE alone, with DESISA having dropped off the pace just after 15km and TADESE losing touch after 21km.
KIPCHOGE and the pacers remained on track for a sub-two-hour time through 25km in 71:03, and with 85:20 on the clock at 30km the projected finish time was exactly 2:00:00. The 35km mark was passed in 1:39:37 and 40km in 1:54:04.
KIPCHOGE averaged around 4:36 per mile, with around 4:34.5 needed to dip under two hours.
Both TADESE and DESISA battled on to finish, clocking 2:06:51 and 2:14:10 respectively.

VACANCIES AT LEE VALLEY ATHLETICS CENTRE  The Centre is looking for additional casual staff to take them through the summer and into next winter. The job involves setting up and down for events, coaching on kid’s sessions and cleaning, whilst in time those with the right abilities will get trained up to work on Reception as well. Rate of pay is £10.06 per hour.
They are looking for people with a passion for Athletics, a love of hard work and a keen interest in coaching children (preferably but not necessarily holding a minimum of an Athletics Assistant Coach award). Anyone interested should contact MICK to express their interest by e mailing me on mbond@vibrantpartnerships.co.uk

COACHES SET FOR MEDAL RECOGNITION  With 100 days until the start of the Championships, the organisers of the IAAF World Championships London 2017 have announced that for the first time ever at a World Championships, coaches of medal-winning athletes will also receive medals.
The medals, gifted to successful athletes once they return from their ceremony, will be for them to hand to their coach or significant advisor in recognition of the unique and valued working relationship between athlete and coach.

NEWS HEADLINE FOR THE EVENING STANDARD  In the 27 April edition they reported that Barnet Council last night approved the application (new £20m stand), with the improvement aimed at delivering “enhanced community, education and sporting facilities”.  The stadium is also home to Shaftesbury Barnet Harriers athletic club.

VACANCIES AT LEE VALLEY ATHLETICS CENTRE  The Centre is looking for additional casual staff to take them through the summer and into next winter. The job involves setting up and down for events, coaching on kid’s sessions and cleaning, whilst in time those with the right abilities will get trained up to work on Reception as well. Rate of pay is £10.06 per hour.
They are looking for people with a passion for Athletics, a love of hard work and a keen interest in coaching children (preferably but not necessarily holding a minimum of an Athletics Assistant Coach award). Anyone interested should contact MICK to express their interest by e mailing me on mbond@vibrantpartnerships.co.uk

UK ATHLETICS WELCOME INPUT FROM CLUB ATHLETES ON THE SPORT’S RULES – The following article was published on the Athletic Weekly website recently.

Did you know that a track and field meeting cannot last longer than eight hours? Or that you’re allowed to wear a T-shirt in competition but only if it matches your club colours? Or that headphones are banned in races unless they conduct sound through bones and do not sit in the ears?
These are some of the many weird and wonderful regulations in the current UKA Rule Book and the national governing body is now encouraging ideas and submissions ahead of the 2018 edition being published in February next year.
The athletics fraternity has until July 31 to submit possible changes to the rules and the main requirement is that you need the support of your club before emailing your suggestion to rules@uka.org.uk
“We’d really encourage people to contribute and discuss it with their clubmates,” says Nigel Holl, UKA’s director of strategy and partnerships.
The governing body received around 60 submissions prior to the publication of the current UKA 2016 Rule Book but it involved UKA’s competition rules merging with the IAAF’s rules and saw debate surrounding age group divisions.
“We have home countries, for example, which gives us extra eligibility issues,” says Holl, explaining why the UK needs some rules of its own in addition to the IAAF’s rules.
When asked what likely ‘hot potatoes’ there might be this time, Holl said: “There are no flashing lights to be honest, probably because the process was so effective in 2016.”
But he adds that the issues of composite clubs and the size of logos on athletes’ kit are more of an issue now than in the past.
“There is also nothing stopping people from bringing up the age groups issue again,” he says.

SEB COE TO BECOME THE NEW LOUGHBOROUGH CHANCELLOR – The IAAF president graduated from Loughborough in 1979 before going on to achieve his Olympic success


Lord Sebastian Coe has been announced as Loughborough University’s new Chancellor.
The two-time Olympic gold medallist and IAAF president graduated from Loughborough in 1979 before going on to achieve his Olympic success in 1980 and 1984.
Coe, who graduated with a BSc in Economics and Social History, was made an Honorary Doctor of Technology (Hon DTech) by the university in 1985 and was appointed as a Pro Chancellor in 2012.
He will now become Loughborough’s sixth Chancellor, replacing Sir Nigel Rudd, and be officially installed at the university’s summer graduation ceremonies in July.

HOW MUCH DOES MILEAGE MATTER – The following was published on Athletics Weekly website recently, explaining how distance runners can become fixated on weekly mileage, often to their detriment, says Matt Long.


Racking up the miles is part and parcel of developing the aerobic energy system for any endurance athlete. But there are two opposite schools of thought about how best it should be done.
One camp insists that training should involve a high volume of work designed to overload the system, the other camp that ‘less is more’ –the quality of what you do is far more important than the quantity.
So just how much does mileage matter? Are you doing more or less than is necessary? There is no straightforward answer and much depends on your genetics and individual strengths and weaknesses. But to help pick your way through the maze of training advice, we’ve consulted four leading experts for the ultimate advice. They are: Andy Butchart: impressed greatly with his sixth place in the Rio Olympic 5000m, Pippa Woolven with Beth Potter to her left (pictured): has been a regular GB international of late over the country and Charlie Spedding: famously bagged a London marathon victory and Olympic bronze in 1984.
Their collective wisdom leaves us with eight golden rules to follow.
Rule 1 – Avoid junk mileage – “Mileage does matter but only appropriate mileage,” says Duval. “Being efficient and capable of sustaining a certain pace is more important”.
Woolven agrees: “I try not to get too hung up on it. I don’t believe in doing ‘junk miles’”.
Rule 2 – Periodise your training – This is something many athletes get wrong. Yet periodising your training into distinct blocks and tapering before competition will help with your long-term development.
“On average I do more miles in the winter,” Butchart says. “We still do high mileage in summer but it’s less frequent as we cut it down for the track races.”
Woolven agrees that mileage is important, especially in the winter months. “If I can build up a solid endurance base with some consistent training before Christmas then I find it usually sets me up well,” she says.
Rule 3 – Mileage to facilitate recovery – Not all miles must be run at significant pace. What’s key, says Duval, is to remember that your miles can have a different focus.
“Slower mileage is needed to aid recovery and speed up the body’s adaptation to intense workouts,” he says. Steady aerobic work sets you up for higher intensity training achieved through speed and speed endurance work which is more dependent on the lactate and ATP-CP energy systems.
Rule 4 – Build a mileage component into speed and strength endurance sessions – This is where you can get clever with your miles.
“Mileage can be incorporated into specific workouts to enable athletes to keep higher mileage up if they are time poor and can only train once a day,” Duval says.
For example, a 10min warm-up, then 15-20min threshold run, then straight into an interval session either on roads or the track, followed by a 15-20min threshold and 10min cool down”.
Spedding, author of the cult endurance autobiography From Last to First, says that even when training for the marathon, he added 5x1600m with 400m in 90sec as the recovery.
Woolven adds that the kind of aerobic development facilitated by high mileage can be achieved within sessions that build other components of fitness, such as strength endurance. “I think hill reps can be really useful to build strength and, when combined with some blocks of tempo, make a good session,” she says.
Rule 5 – Don’t become a slave to mileage – So many athletes fall into this trap, says Spedding. Yet an obsession with clocking miles can result in injury.
“I used to run between 70-80 miles per week when I was running 5km and 10km on the track,” Spedding says. “This included a 20-mile run almost every week. I suffered from a lot of Achilles tendon problems during my track career and didn’t want to push the mileage too high in case it increased my injuries.”
An obsession with mileage can lead to psychological as well as physiological staleness, Woolven warns. “Cross country in the UK can be a long season though so if I obsessed over mileage too much then I think I’d start to suffer,” she says.
Mileage should be a means to an end. “When I trained for the marathon, I tried to do a six-week spell of between 100-110 miles per week, which ended three weeks before the race,” Spedding says. “I say tried because I rarely managed to achieve it.”
Rule 6 – Know when to back off – “If I felt unwell or sore or simply too tired I would back off the miles,” says Spedding. “I always felt it was better to miss a few miles than to risk a serious problem. I always regarded certain sessions as much more important than that extra five-mile run that gets me to the mileage target.
“I wonder if runners now are too fixated on high mileage. Are they willing to back off if they have a niggle or a sore throat? It’s crucial to do that.”
Rule 7 – Cross training – Substituting additional miles with another activity can be beneficial. Woolven says her aim during the winter months is to hit 70 miles per week, yet “some years it’s been higher – around 80 miles – and some years more like 50-60 miles”.
This winter she says she’s been hitting around 60 miles per week with a packed racing schedule.
“But I’ve also been substituting a couple of runs for some cycling,” Woolven says. “I’d far rather jump on the bike as a substitute for an easy run if I feel like I’d benefit more from it”.
Rule 8 – Athlete-centredness – Our physiological make-ups are vastly different and to improve we need diverse modes of training. “Every athlete is different,” says Butchart. “Some of us can cope with high mileage and some prefer the strength and conditioning side of training.
“I always think the sooner you can work out what works best for you the better. Do what works for you and stick to it.”
Individuality is highly important. “There is no set amount of mileage that produces winners as athletes are all different,” Duval agrees. “Some thrive on 150 miles per week, but others do just as well on 70 miles per week.”
What’s vital is determining your uppermost limit. “Finding your most beneficial mileage, and running up to it but not beyond it, is crucial,” says Spedding.

FAREWELL TO JOHN – 40 years a groundsman at Copthall and Allianz Park


BRYAN SMITH and GEOFF WILLIAMS attended his funeral at Hendon Crematorium – the chapel was full and the service included several very moving eulogies, particularly from his daughter and granddaughter but also from Alex, a Saracens work colleague. They all spoke about him being a real family orientated person, very keen on gardening and a very positive influence on everyone he met. He was a very hard worker and an utterly reliable and conscientious colleague. His knowledge of athletic groundsmanship was second to none. The above photograph shows the big screen at the Saracens v Sale match on Saturday 25 February when there was a similar announcement and a minutes silence in John’s memory.

SIX OF LONDON’S BEST LUNCHTIME RUNS The following article was published on the Athletics Weekly website recently. 
A team from The Color Run UK – the ‘Happiest 5K on the Planet’ – has put together a selection of runs to help you stay happy and healthy during your London lunch breaks
Each route varies in gradient and, depending on fitness level, can be made as hard or easy as you wish.
Running during your lunch break is not only a great way to improve fitness levels, but also provides a good excuse to escape the office for some fresh air. Exercising at lunch can have many positive benefits such as boosting mood levels and improving your chances of having a productive afternoon.
 
Regents Park and Primrose Hill
Regents Park provides multiple runs that offer scenic landscapes and a variety of routes that cater to all levels of fitness. Regents Park is the ultimate lunchtime escape, allowing your mind to block out the hustle and bustle of the office environment. For those looking for an extra challenge, why not head up to the top of Primrose Hill and be rewarded with unparalleled views of the city? This run is great for those based in North East London with Regent’s Park and Baker Street station just around the corner.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tower Bridge to London Bridge (or Waterloo)
A popular route among people working in the city or on the Southbank. This route is flexible as runners can start anywhere along Embankment, while allowing you to take in amazing river views like the London Eye. This route can get busy during the summer time, so best to stick to smaller groups. This is also perfect for interval training due to the flat incline – so why not challenge yourself with some sprints? The nearest stations are Temple, Bank, Mansion House, Embankment and Southwark.


 

 

 

 

 

 

Euston – Kings Cross Canal
A flexible north London run which is ideal for those based near Camden Town, Euston, Kings Cross or Angel. This peaceful pocket of London allows you to take full advantage of the scenic canal, enabling you to feel miles away from the chaotic office atmosphere. Runners can start at Camden and head East towards Kings Cross for a quick lunchtime jog. For those wanting more of a challenge you can head down to Angel and back again. If your office is located near Granary Square take advantage of the water fountains during the summer months and cool off.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Royal Parks (x2) – Embankment to Green Park/St James
The famous four park run can be cut in half to achieve a quick lunchtime fix that won’t eat way at your itinerary. Runners can start at Embankment and head to St James’ Park, then on to Green Park. A lap around each and then back to Embankment is 5km. This run is perfect for clocking up those lunchtime miles in record time as it’s all flat. For an epic marathon-worthy moment, run along The Mall and get those endorphins rushing. You’ll feel ready to tackle the rest of the day after this run.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Battersea Park
If you’re starting in Chelsea, cross over the Chelsea Bridge and head straight into Battersea Park. Running around the boundary clocks is around 3.5km and there’s some lovely sights to keep you going. Head past the zoo, around the far border of the park by the lake and back along next to the Thames before crossing the bridge on the way back to the office. This picturesque run is a great one to if you’re based west and need to de-stress. The nearest stations are Battersea Park and Queenstown Road.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Greenwich Park
Be warned, this run is not for the faint-hearted. Greenwich Park boasts one of the most stunning views of the city, but that comes at a price. Get those hill sprints in with your colleagues as you tackle the mighty incline up to Greenwich Observatory, before heading down again and enjoying a lap or two of the flat park to finish off. This run is great for those looking to blow off some steam. Once back in the office, you can refuel with a mighty carbohydrate filled lunch. The nearest train stations are Maze Hill, Blackheath and Greenwich over ground.

KYLE LANGFORD LOOKING FORWARD TO A FAST FUTURE – The following article was published on the Athletics Weekly website recently. 


Training changes and enjoying racing have made a big difference to the British indoor 600m record-breaker
He might have run 600m indoors quicker than any other Briton ever has, but KYLE insists he could have gone even faster in Athlone earlier this month.
The 21-year-old clocked 1:16.10 at the AIT International Grand Prix on February 15 to improve on DAI GREENE’S time of 1:16.22 from 2013.
That came after a below-par performance at the British Athletics Indoor Team Trials in Sheffield, where he finished fifth over 800m. Following his record-breaking run in Ireland, Langford went on to place third at the Müller Indoor Grand Prix, running an indoor PB of 1:46.79 for third.
“I’m happy but at the same time I’m that type of person, I always want to better what I’ve run,” said KYLE on his 600m. “I thought I could have gone faster. With how the pacing went, I felt decent, so I definitely think there’s a lot more to knock off there.”  What makes his performance all the more impressive is that before this year, the European junior gold medallist hadn’t raced indoors since 2014, and even then, that was to contest a sole 400m.
Although disappointed with his run in Sheffield, KYLE – who has since been selected for GB’s European Indoor Championships team – says the race served a positive purpose and made him even more motivated. “I felt physically fine but mentally, it was my first race and I think I went into it a bit raw,” he said. “I lost concentration and when you lose concentration indoors it’s really unforgiving.
“I think it was a learning curve for me. I needed a bit of a kick up the a***. My main aim going into the indoor season was wanting to break the 600m record.
“I was really disappointed after Sheffield but it’s just one of those things. You’ve got to bounce back from it and I did that in two days.”
Having struggled with injury last year, the Shaftesbury Barnet athlete says he is now taking things more seriously and changes to his training programme, including the introduction of strength and conditioning, have made a big difference. KYLE is enjoying racing again and that is being reflected in his performances.
“Something that I didn’t do in the past is enjoy moments,” said the Watford-based runner, who gives huge credit to his coach, George Harrison. “It comes and goes so quick. I’ve realised, take your time and just make the most of it so that’s what I’m going to do.”
Having competed at the IAAF World Championships in Beijing two years ago, one particular moment KYLE hopes to enjoy this summer is reaching the final when the championships take place in London.
“All in my mind is that I want to make the final at Worlds,” he said. “I think making the final at Worlds is harder than winning a medal. Once you’re in a final any of the eight people can win a medal.
“Making the final is a massive thing for me. That’s what I’m aiming for.”

SAFETY ADVERTISEMENTI wanted to let you know about a new range of running/cycling vests that we have brought to the UK from the USA called RoadNoise
There are 2 models; 
The Original – The original has built in speakers in the shoulders so you can listen to your favourite music whilst you run but without completely blocking out important background noise (i.e. cars, traffic, lorries etc.) which makes it a much safer option over ear-buds. It also features nice bright reflective stripes for added visibility on the road. Comes in a range of sizes and colours. It is also allowed in relay competitions where ear-buds are banned.
The Long Haul – The Long Haul is similar to The Original but is more advanced with the addition of an amplifier for increased sound, loads of pockets to hold reservoirs, bottles, lights etc. (we also sell a range of Hydrapak products which work seamlessly with the Long Haul).

You can learn more about both models at our website www.roadnoise.co.uk 
The other reason I wanted to contact you is to offer you and your club members an intro offer of 20% off the RRP as we are keen to get the vests out there and get some feedback so we can further improve and refine the products. 
Simply use the code INTRO20%OFF at checkout to get the discount.
