RESULTS ETC FROM STEVE S Beckenham 10K, June 1 Win for Dulwich women A fair turn out on this tough 10K with three long climbs as we again dominated the prize giving. Second claimer Marc Clayton representing the host club, ran strongly for second overall though Rob Watts ran one of his slowest ever 10Ks and wasn't at his best. He was chased home by a relaxed, Clare Elms, who was supposed to be easing around after her 3 track races 18 hours earlier but still was 2 minutes up on the year before and first woman by two and a half. Andrea showed a return to form to break 40 and finish second and with Emma 4th and Nicola fifth, we won yet another women's team award. Claire Steward, after her excellent marathon the week before, was first W55 while Ruki Sidhwa, Nicola Stevenson (a fine pb), and just inside the hour with strong runs were Jo Hewett and Kim Gower as the Dulwich women outnumbered and outperformed the men yet again. The men were less prominent other than Rob though Edward Smyth, Graham Laylee, Paul Keating and Mike Crilly with almost as many men out on the course supporting including John McGlashan, Mike Ward and Barry Graham. 2 Marc Clayton 34:18 (2nd claim) 7 Rob Watts 36:23 1W/8 Clare Elms 36:54 2W/27 Andrea Pickup 39:26 38 Edward Smyth 40:29 4W/60 Emma Ibell 43:18 5W/72 Nicola Richmond 44:12 82 Graham Laylee 44:40

to better this time. However with a wet track and a tactical slow first lap of 68 secs, Ian was disappointed with his time of 2.18 but he did finish 7th out of 8 and he narrowly beat his team mate who beat him last time. The eventual winner clocked 1.59. Essex PB 5 (Basildon 1st June)
Eltham BMC meeting, May 28 In very breezy conditions, Mike Mann ran in the C race and not at his sharpest after injury problems, and as usual in his 800m races, started too quickly but should benefit from the race. Clare Elms broke 2:20 but didn't get a clear run and so just over 30 minutes later ran a 1500 and considering the lack of recovery and conditions, was surprised to break her club outdoor record. 800 C: 4 Mike Mann 2:27.31 800 D: 4/1W Clare Elms 2:19.94 1500 B: 7/2W/1 Vet) Clare Elms 4:44.59 (Dulwich Club W40 record) Southern Women's League, Lee Valley, May 31 Clare won two races only taking the lead 400m out but putting in sub 70 last laps and winning by 10 seconds and contributed a 64.4 4x400 leg to the winning team, and Ros won her B 3000m but their track club (Cambridge H) finished a agonising half a point from winning. 1500A: 1 Clare Elms 4:50.2 3000A: 1 Clare Elms 10:36.6 3000B: 1 Ros Tabor 12:13.7 4x400: 1 Camb H 4:14.0 (Clare 64.4) Hill Sessions This Saturday sees a return of the hill sessions. The first one is at 9.30am on Sydenham Hill (opposite the station. All abilities welcome.

Martin Morley and Colin Frith decided to enter this race on the day. The course as advertised is relatively flat (slight inclines?) and traffic free. It finishes on a track and was well organised. With just over 200 runners the field the race was particularly competitive in the men’s event. Colin Frith had hoped to break 32.30 but due to poor preparation (more units of alcohol this week rather than miles) and a busy week out of the office this was probably too much of an ask. Martin was continuing his road to fitness. This was a race, not too far away, that perhaps ought to be considered as a future club champs. It was not particularly scenic but it was relatively flat with fast track finish. There also seemed to be numerous prizes on offer and it was for a good cause. Judging by this years results Dulwich would also feature in the awards particularly in the team, ladies and all the veteran categories. Colin Frith 32.53 63rd and 4th V50 Martin Morley 33.55 71st and 6th V50
RACE REPORT Dorking 10 miles This was the first time I had run this rural and scenic 10 mile race. The course, one small and one larger lap, is undulating and follows country lanes in the shadow of the North Downs to the east of Dorking. It was a well organised and enjoyable fairly low key race. I was surprised not to see any other Dulwich runners. I would recommend this race and suggest that it could be considered as one of the Club Champs races next year. Lis Pritchard 1.11.47 (1st FV50)

AN APOLOGY Green Belt Report
You may have noticed that the Green Belt Relay was missing a couple of stages. For those of you who took the trouble to compile very detailed Reports, sorry for this mistake. There was nothing X-rated in your reports, just that SHORTS spam volumes are now running at 95% of our submissions ( more on this in next issue). I overlooked the proper stuff . Missing Stages rescued and I will stitch these in later this week, when I’m back on my own trusty computer. Rick (SHORTS )
THIS WEEK Assembly League, 5th June The next Assembly League fixture is at Victoria Park Hackney. Whilst this may seem like a bit of a trek from south London it is easily accessible if you work in Central London. Recommended transport route is train from Highbury and Islington or Stratford to Hackney Wick from where the Clubhouse is only a short walk (see below). The race starts at 7.15pm and there are changing facilities available. We have had a great turnout for the first 2 league fixtures, please try to support this one. From Hackney Wick Station: Out of the station and walk up Wallis Road. At the end of Wallis Road Cross Rothbury Road and take the footbridge across the A12. You will come out facing Victoria Park. Turn right down Cadogan Terrace and walk downhill. The Club HQ is on your left at the bottom of Cadogan Terrace. The entrance to the Clubhouse is level with the traffic lights. The Clubhouse is also within reach of a number of bus routes, including the 388, S2, 236, 276 and 30. The 8 and 277 buses also travel around the outside of the eastern section of the Park.
