I would like to thank all of our Volunteers this year, for their cheeriness and professionalism they have shown, especially in these most trying times. We have our final event to come, the Virgin London Mini Marathon which is on Sunday 3 October.

CHARLOTTE PURDUE AND JAKE SMITH ENJOY VITALITY BIG HALF VICTORIESThe following article was published on the Athletics Weekly website recently.
Around 12,000 runners take part in 13.1-mile event in London on Sunday. In her third win in the women’s race, PURDUE improved her own course record to (69:51), which bodes well for her chances at the Virgin Money London Marathon on 3 October. In the men’s race, SMITH clocked (62:06) to beat JACK ROWE by five seconds and the Cardiff runner will hope to go quicker still when he lines up in the Great North Run on 12 September.
Still awaiting results to be put on the PO10, if anyone run please let me know.

UPCOMING ROAD RELAY AND CROSS COUNTRY FIXTURES 2021-2022Apologies but i realise the Summer is not quite over, but it will not be long before thoughts of returning to a normal Cross Country season will bring joy to all you mud revellers. But first the Road Relays are now only 4/6 weeks away.

It my belief the Shaftesbury Barnet Harriers has now an extraordinary number of talented athletes throughout all age-groups. I realise that with the impending Road Relays, our Team Managers will soon be under pressure in submitting our entries. For example, the Southern on 26 September (although the entry information is not published yet), will most likely have a closing date of Friday 10 September which is only 3 weeks away. To assist the Team Managers can athletes please contact them on your current availability (for Middlesex and Southern).

Cross Country, our season is not only geared to the Championships, but I truly believe the Metropolitan League and North West London League is a big help in developing the team spirit within the club. Especially the Metropolitan League where over the past few years our Individual and Team success has been outstanding. One of main reasons is the number of athletes taking part in all of the 5 fixtures has risen dramatically. Therefore, it does not matter what ability you have, and by running at the Metropolitan League and North West London League will make you a part of the SBH Team Spirit. These are the SBH Cross Country Team Managers.

SBH SUBSCRIPTIONS 2020-2021 SBH Treasurer GEOFF MORPHITIS has sent me the following regarding subscriptions.
The Club AGM took place virtually at 19.30 on Tuesday 24 November. One of the resolutions which was passed dealt with Club Subscriptions as follows. “The Annual Membership Fee for new members from 1 December 2020 will increase to £50. Existing members who have paid their membership fee for year ended 30 September 2020 will be considered as having also paid their fee for the year ended 30 September 2021.
In other words, in recognition of the disruption caused by Covid-19, these members will have 2 years membership for the price of one.” Therefore, I’m now asking athletes who have not paid their subscription for the year ended 30/09/20 (£45) to pay, so as to qualify for the 2 for 1 concession together with the England Athletics Registration Fee of £15 for 2020/21. The total is £60 and should be paid NOW to; ACCOUNT NAME: SHAFTESBURY BARNET HARRIERS, BANK: HSBC, ACCOUNT NUMBER: 41308378, SORT CODE: 400426 – Please let me know when payment is made. Thanks GEOFF

CURRENT DISTRIBUTION OF SHAFTESBURY INFORMATION Currently I notify members (by email) using “MailChimp”. The reason I changed, was in November 2017 “Gmail” put a limit of 100 addresses that users could send to in a 24-hour period, and currently I send to approximately 850 members each issue.

On seeking technical advice “MailChimp” was recommended as the best way for SBH to go forward. There is one thing you should be aware off is that when you receive an email from me, the footer at the bottom has 4 options, of which one is “Unsubscribe Me From List”. Could I ask you not to select this as if you do you will be automatically removed from my distribution list.

UPCOMING ROAD RELAY AND CROSS COUNTRY FIXTURES 2021-2022Apologies but i realise the Summer is not quite over, but it will not be long before thoughts of returning to a normal Cross Country season will bring joy to all you mud revellers. But first the Road Relays are now only 4/6 weeks away.

It my belief the Shaftesbury Barnet Harriers has now an extraordinary number of talented athletes throughout all age-groups. I realise that with the impending Road Relays, our Team Managers will soon be under pressure in submitting our entries. For example, the Southern on 26 September (although the entry information is not published yet), will most likely have a closing date of Friday 10 September which is only 3 weeks away. To assist the Team Managers can athletes please contact them on your current availability (for Middlesex and Southern).

Cross Country, our season is not only geared to the Championships, but I truly believe the Metropolitan League and North West London League is a big help in developing the team spirit within the club. Especially the Metropolitan League where over the past few years our Individual and Team success has been outstanding. One of main reasons is the number of athletes taking part in all of the 5 fixtures has risen dramatically. Therefore, it does not matter what ability you have, and by running at the Metropolitan League and North West London League will make you a part of the SBH Team Spirit. These are the SBH Cross Country Team Managers.

ELLIE BAKER WINS INAUGURAL BMC GRAND PRIX POINTS SERIES TITLE ELLIE won the 800m series first prize of £1000. Photograph by MARK SHEARMAN.

The women’s two-lap contest saw the contenders ignore the advertised 57.5 pace and the pack went through in 61, with European under-23 champion ISABELLE BOFFEY leading down the back straight. However, in the last 100m European Team Championships winner BAKER burst away, showing the strength that had taken her to a (4:06.54) 1500m midweek PB, clocking (2:01.66).

That gave her 94 points in the overall Grand Prix standings, ahead of JENNY SELMAN and JENNY NESBITT, who were second equal with 80.

WORLD RECORD HOLDER BRIGID KOSGEI HEADLINES 2021 VIRGIN MONEY LONDON MARATHONThe following article was published on the Athletics Weekly website recently. Photograph by GETTY IMAGES.

Reigning champions BRIGID KOSGEI and SHURA KITATA will race in London once again as they look to defend their marathon titles, and will swap the heat and humidity of Sapporo for a much cooler climate when they defend their Virgin Money London Marathon titles on 3 October. KOSGEI, who won an Olympic silver medal in the women’s marathon in Japan just last week, is the fastest woman in history over the 26.2-mile distance (2:14:04) and is the two-time reigning champion in London after victory in 2019 and at the elite-only race which took place in October of last year.

The Covid pandemic has meant this year’s race will occupy an autumn slot again, rather than its usual April date, and KOSGEI has her sights set on making it three in a row. “It is a great feeling to be coming back, as London is one of my favourite marathons,” the 27-year-old says. “Last year’s win was very special, particularly given what the whole world was going through – it was fantastic just to have the London Marathon organised and even more so to be the winner. I hope to arrive again in very good shape and win for the third time.” The Kenyan will face stiff opposition, given that seven other women in the field have personal bests under 2:20. Reigning TCS New York City Marathon champion JOYCILLINE JEPKOSGEI will be one to watch, especially as she set a personal best of (2:18:40) last December at the Valencia Marathon, where she finished second to current Olympic champion PERES CHEPCHIRCHIRROZA DEREJE leads the Ethiopian challenge and her personal best of (2:18:30), which makes her the tenth-fastest female marathoner of all time, is the second best time in the field behind KOSGEI. Two-time Tokyo Marathon champion (2015 and 2018) BIRHANNE DIBABA is also in the field and could pose a threat, given her best of (2:18:35).

In the men’s race, KITATA will hope to bounce back from his Olympic heartbreak after the Ethiopian failed to finish in Sapporo due to the hot conditions. “I was disappointed to have to pull out of the Olympic Games marathon but I just did not adapt to the weather well,” he says. “It was very cold in Ethiopia prior to leaving for Tokyo and when we got there the weather took its toll on my body and made my breathing very hard. But I’m healthy and looking forward to racing in the Virgin Money London Marathon again. I am preparing very well and my coach has me very ready to defend my title in London. “Winning last year was an unforgettable memory and it gave me huge excitement to bring back such a big victory to my country and to make my family and coaches proud. I have set my mind on how I can run fast and better than last year and I’m looking forward to seeing if I can repeat the victory and make history in the race.” The 25-year-old will line up alongside the two men who joined him on the podium at last year’s elite-only race – VINCENT KIPCHUMBA and SISAY LEMMA. With seven other men in the field having run sub-2:05, it will be a test for KITATA to defend his title. EVANS CHEBET, the current Valencia Marathon champion and the fastest man in the world last year with (2:03:00), leads the Kenyan challenge. Two-time Tokyo Marathon champion BIRHANU LEGESE, who is the third-fastest marathoner of all-time with (2:02:48), will also be in London. Add MOSINAT GEREMEW and MULE WASIHUN, who both finished on the podium at the 2019 Virgin Money London Marathon, into the mix and it has the makings of an intriguing and exciting race.

After a year’s absence, the Virgin Money London Marathon returns to its traditional and iconic course from Blackheath to The Mall after last year’s elite-only race took place on a multiple closed-loop circuit around St James’s Park. Up to 50,000 runners are expected in the mass race and up to 50,000 around the world will take part in a virtual event, completing the 26.2 miles on 3 October. It will form part of a thrilling climax to the Abbott World Marathon Majors Series XIII, with all of major marathons – Berlin, London, Chicago, Boston, Tokyo and New York – taking place over a six-week period. The Series started at the 2019 Bank of America Chicago Marathon and will finish at the TCS New York City Marathon in November. In the women’s standings, KOSGEI is in the lead, sitting 25 points ahead of compatriot and rival JEPKOSGEI. In the men’s standings, KITATA is currently in second place with LEGESE in joint fourth place. HUGH BRASHER, Event Director of the Virgin Money London Marathon, says: “We are delighted to welcome our reigning champions back to defend their titles at the 2021 Virgin Money London Marathon and, as always, they will be challenged by a stellar field of the world’s best marathon runners. “3 October is set to be an extraordinary day in our history as these great athletes lead the way as tens of thousands of mass runners take on their 26.2 mile challenge from Greenwich to Westminster and around the world in the virtual event.”

TAYLOR CAMPBELL ON THE ART OF HAMMER THROWINGThe following article was published on the Athletics Weekly website recently. Photograph by GETTY IMAGES.

To throw as far as you can is a simple concept, but there is something beautiful about the moment when art and science combine to create a seemingly effortless mark. TAYLOR CAMPBELL respects the science, but the Loughborough-based athlete, who qualified for the Tokyo Olympics with a (78.23m) effort in early June, admits he’s a man with feelings. He thrives on the art of hammer throwing and the basic principles he learned as a teenager from coach PAUL DICKENSON. “I had this nice connection, a feel for it,” he says. “You can’t teach those feelings.”

CAMPBELL, now 24, has been coached by JOHN PEARSON – also the technology lead for the innovation team at Rolls Royce – since 2016. PEARSON’S approach is fact-based and data driven, but he values CAMPBELL’S zeal and creativity. It’s not so much about logical thinking versus artistic creativity, but a hybrid approach which is proving fruitful. “The relationship] works because JOHN has all the knowledge, whereas I just love the event and the art side of it, the feeling side of it,” he explains. “JOHN pulls together all the stuff I like and the stuff I do well and he meets me in the middle. He also keeps me grounded and stops me believing my own hype.” In a discipline, which arguably favours power and technique over passion, CAMPBELL believes his lifetime best throw was at odds with what should be possible based on his current physical capability and some basic engineering principles. According to his coach, however, it was due to the exact combination of his biomechanics, physical attributes and excellent technique that he threw beyond (78m). “He may not be as big and strong as his peers (CAMPBELL is 6ft 4in and 107kg), but he has great levers so the orbit of the hammer is big, and he’s brilliant at developing a feel for it,” explains PEARSON. “His ‘hammer awareness’ is exceptional and I’m in no way surprised that he achieved that mark given the way his training has been going. I can understand that it might have felt easy for him because everything came together at the right time in the right competition, but I have seen better throws from him [technically] and I know there is plenty more there.”

CAMPBELL says he’s inspired by his fellow athletes and the positive energy that drives them. There is a collective willingness to succeed and a sense that the mood, or perhaps the attitude, at his Loughborough base has changed for the better in recent years. “I think in the past people used to moan about how high the standards were, but now if the standard is (77.50m) then we just have to throw it, we can’t moan about it,” he says. “We just have to step up and compete. “That’s the great thing that people like NICK MILLER and SOPHIE HITCHON have demonstrated. We can do these things. They’ve paved the way and shown us we can do it, now it’s up to us.” In addition to an Olympic qualifying mark, his performance in Budapest was the second-furthest hammer throw ever by a British athlete (behind NICK MILLER). It has given CAMPBELL a new-found confidence and perspective on what’s possible. At the Tokyo Olympics, he threw (71.34m) and did not make the final but he is now looking forward to a 2022 season that features the Commonwealth Games, European and World Championships. “Last year I believe I could have gone high 75m at minimum, possibly 76m,” says CAMPBELL. “When I came out this year I’d had another good winter, but I wasn’t throwing too well. I was throwing 73m and 74m and I wasn’t quite hitting them, but they still felt relatively easy. I was thinking ‘if I can throw 74m easy, then what happens when I really hit it, when I get that feeling again?’” He found out in Budapest in June. In the end, CAMPBELL’S feelings won over physics. “I trusted the throw,” he says. It looks likely there’s much more to come.

SBH SUBSCRIPTIONS 2020-2021 SBH Treasurer GEOFF MORPHITIS has sent me the following regarding subscriptions.
The Club AGM took place virtually at 19.30 on Tuesday 24 November. One of the resolutions which was passed dealt with Club Subscriptions as follows. “The Annual Membership Fee for new members from 1 December 2020 will increase to £50. Existing members who have paid their membership fee for year ended 30 September 2020 will be considered as having also paid their fee for the year ended 30 September 2021.
In other words, in recognition of the disruption caused by Covid-19, these members will have 2 years membership for the price of one.” Therefore, I’m now asking athletes who have not paid their subscription for the year ended 30/09/20 (£45) to pay, so as to qualify for the 2 for 1 concession together with the England Athletics Registration Fee of £15 for 2020/21. The total is £60 and should be paid NOW to; ACCOUNT NAME: SHAFTESBURY BARNET HARRIERS, BANK: HSBC, ACCOUNT NUMBER: 41308378, SORT CODE: 400426 – Please let me know when payment is made. Thanks GEOFF

SBH SUBSCRIPTIONS 2020-2021 SBH Treasurer GEOFF MORPHITIS has sent me the following regarding subscriptions.
The Club AGM took place virtually at 19.30 on Tuesday 24 November. One of the resolutions which was passed dealt with Club Subscriptions as follows. “The Annual Membership Fee for new members from 1 December 2020 will increase to £50. Existing members who have paid their membership fee for year ended 30 September 2020 will be considered as having also paid their fee for the year ended 30 September 2021.
In other words, in recognition of the disruption caused by Covid-19, these members will have 2 years membership for the price of one.” Therefore, I’m now asking athletes who have not paid their subscription for the year ended 30/09/20 (£45) to pay, so as to qualify for the 2 for 1 concession together with the England Athletics Registration Fee of £15 for 2020/21. The total is £60 and should be paid NOW to; ACCOUNT NAME: SHAFTESBURY BARNET HARRIERS, BANK: HSBC, ACCOUNT NUMBER: 41308378, SORT CODE: 400426 – Please let me know when payment is made. Thanks GEOFF

CURRENT DISTRIBUTION OF SHAFTESBURY INFORMATION Currently I notify members (by email) using “MailChimp”. The reason I changed, was in November 2017 “Gmail” put a limit of 100 addresses that users could send to in a 24-hour period, and currently I send to approximately 850 members each issue.

On seeking technical advice “MailChimp” was recommended as the best way for SBH to go forward. There is one thing you should be aware off is that when you receive an email from me, the footer at the bottom has 4 options, of which one is “Unsubscribe Me From List”. Could I ask you not to select this as if you do you will be automatically removed from my distribution list.

SATURDAY 31 JULY DAY 2 – Featured ZHARNEL HUGHES who was starting his 100m campaign.

WEDNESDAY 4 AUGUST DAY 6 – The final of the 3000m steeplechase took place during the evening session, and was run at 9 minute pace, LIZZIE BIRD dug in deep, but with one lap to go 4 runners had pulled away with PERUTH CHEMUTAI of Uganda winning in a time of (9:001.45).

Shaftesbury’s ANGUS MCKENZIE was appointed as Competition Manager (Athletics) last year, and the article on him can be found in the 26 November SBH Newsletter.

SBH SUBSCRIPTIONS 2020-2021 SBH Treasurer GEOFF MORPHITIS has sent me the following regarding subscriptions.
The Club AGM took place virtually at 19.30 on Tuesday 24 November. One of the resolutions which was passed dealt with Club Subscriptions as follows. “The Annual Membership Fee for new members from 1 December 2020 will increase to £50. Existing members who have paid their membership fee for year ended 30 September 2020 will be considered as having also paid their fee for the year ended 30 September 2021.
In other words, in recognition of the disruption caused by Covid-19, these members will have 2 years membership for the price of one.” Therefore, I’m now asking athletes who have not paid their subscription for the year ended 30/09/20 (£45) to pay, so as to qualify for the 2 for 1 concession together with the England Athletics Registration Fee of £15 for 2020/21. The total is £60 and should be paid NOW to; ACCOUNT NAME: SHAFTESBURY BARNET HARRIERS, BANK: HSBC, ACCOUNT NUMBER: 41308378, SORT CODE: 400426 – Please let me know when payment is made. Thanks GEOFF

CURRENT DISTRIBUTION OF SHAFTESBURY INFORMATION Currently I notify members (by email) using “MailChimp”. The reason I changed, was in November 2017 “Gmail” put a limit of 100 addresses that users could send to in a 24-hour period, and currently I send to approximately 850 members each issue.

On seeking technical advice “MailChimp” was recommended as the best way for SBH to go forward. There is one thing you should be aware off is that when you receive an email from me, the footer at the bottom has 4 options, of which one is “Unsubscribe Me From List”. Could I ask you not to select this as if you do you will be automatically removed from my distribution list.
