*****************************************************************
  Autumn has brought some good performances on the road, the outstanding one being Mark Steinle's third place in the Great North Run, though anyone trying to follow the race on TV might have thought the Brits had all gone off course.
  We now wish Mark (and all others) well in their Marathon preparations where the world best is now down to 2hr:05.42.
  Our XC Relay was again successful, vindicating the revival at Sparrows Den. The Club Five Cup went to Roy Smith, the only senior in the first five finishers, being joined by Russell Bentley and two other juniors and by fortyniner Ken Daniel.

CROSS-COUNTRY - FIXTURE CHANGES
  KentCAA have moved their Vets and Clubmans Championships to 11th Dec at Beckenham Place Pk.
  Therefore these changes will be made-
a) Our Open 10Km will be held at Hayes on 11th Dec but will not be a Bennett Cup event.
b) Our Club Vets 10Km Chs will be incorporated in the KCAA Vets race. Those of our Vets who do not have Kent qualification will nevertheless be able to run, due to an arrangement made by John Baldwin. All Vets wishing to run must contact John well before the C/D of 30th Nov.
  Also note:- The Kent Mens XC Lge on 6th Nov will be at Beckenham Place Pk.

CLUB SWIMMING CHAMPIONSHIP
      The race for the Maryon-Wilson Cup and Handicap will be over 50m (2 lengths) on Mon 15th Nov, 9 for 9.30 pm, at Beckenham Baths, which re-opened after refurbishment this year. All invited, any stroke, any standard. Starting dive, tumble turn &c optional.

ONE-HOUR RUN
      Due to the continuing wet weather work on the Norman Park track has been delayed well into the Winter Season and it was therefore decided to abandon plans for a race this year. It may be possible to hold the event in the Spring and, if so, an announcement will follow.

UPDATE ON MERGER TALKS WITH BROMLEY A.C .

You will recall that last month we informed you about initial talks with Bromley A.C. to explore the possibility of a merger and published the letter from the BH Committee in response to seven requirements given by them at a meeting in July.

Following this letter being presented to their July commIttee, we received a reply saying our letter had been fully discussed and their committee decision was for no further talks to take place in the Immediate future. The reply was then reported to our committee in August and, such was the strength of feeling by the meeting that a merger was in the best interests of the athletes and other aspects related to active athletics, that we should not allow the subject to drop. As a result a further letter was sent expressing these views, with an offer to have another meeting, either on a formal or informal basis.

 The offer to meet on an informal basis was accepted and the two parties met on the 20th October. No new points arose, and very little, if any, progress was made. The only thing to come out of the meeting was the agreement for Blackheath Harriers to write a further letter to clarify our previous letter, and put forward reasons to support the logic and benefits to both clubs of a merger. The letter will be put to their committee on the 27th October in an attempt to re—open negotiations. We now await the outcome.

The article in the last Courier did,! know cause concern to some Members, but I can assure you the representatives of the Club, the President, Chairman and Secretary, are as you also know, 100% committed Heathens, and the interests of our long term Members will be protected in any negotiations. Any developments will be published in the January Courier.

John Baldwin

Hon. Secretary  


LETTER to the EDITOR, dated 17th Sept 1999
  I have read with some interest, some anxiety and no little anger at some of the merger discussions between The Club and Bromley A.C.
  It would appear that Bromley A.C are indicating that they are honouring us with the suggestion of a merger; that they should provide the first President of the joint Clubs; that they relegate us to second place in the naming of the proposed joint venture and finally, that they should design the new club strip.
  I agree with most of the comments made in the Blackheath General Committee's letter (Courier 19.1 pg2) but not the suggestion that the new club should be named either Blackheath & Bromley A.C or Bromley & Blackheath Harriers. Personally I would not accept other than either "BLACKHEATH & BROMLEY HARRIERS" or "BLACKHEATH & BROMLEY A.C."
  As Peckham Hare and Hounds originally, the Club has been in existence for some 130 years - how long Bromley A.C?
  The election of the first president of the joint clubs should be by democratic vote by all members of both clubs.
  Finally, whatever the 'new design' strip involves, the Club badge should figure most prominently.
  I make a very personal note to end this letter. If the delaying of the merger proposed by Bromley A.C is likely to cause Bromley athletes to suffer, I could suggest an answer. They could all join Blackheath!

CLUB 130th ANNIVERSARY
  Gordon may be pleased to read that this was marked by a run on Sun 24th Oct over the same circuit as used for the 125th (Gazette 625 pg 5), taking in the places mentioned in the Club's first recorded run of 1869. We found one old HQ, The King's Arms, being changed into a block of flats, but the Rye House is much as before. Magnificent Seven were - Alan Pickering, Mike Cronin, Geoff Crowder, Mike Peel, Brian Saxton, Tony Pontifex & Bill Clapham.

Overseenery: Out Of Africa

In Cape Town, after the Comrades Marathon

Greetings from Africa, Now it’s all over bar the aching, there’s time to recall my impressions of Marathon day, from 6am to gone 5.3Opm, 11 hrs 34 minutes to run/walk 89.9km/56.7 miles. Unfortunately I didn’t qualify for a medal. You had to get within 11 hours, though next year they are changing that to 12 hours to attract a bumper crowd (it’s ‘uphill~, 2km shorter, if you are interested). The race has been going since the 1920s, in memory of the Comrades who didn’t come back from the 1914-18 war. 14,000 started on this 75th year, maybe 11,000 completed. So what struck me about it all? Amongst other things, it was a great way to connect with a vast range of South Africans, immigrants from Scotland, Yorkshire and Liverpool chatted away, now happily settled over here. Also, there was a young man of my generation who took part in the Sweto school strikes in the 70’s, numerous valiant women who l didn’t try to compete with (whoosh!... though some I caught....), and an Indian boy who helped to encourage me —along with a whooping crowd— 7 km from the end. These and many more. I was wearing Blackheath Harriers colours so there was much conversation about London and its Marathon (30 miles less). How did things go? I was dropped off, near the start in Pietennaritzburg by my kind host Maureen.

She and her sister Anne had been kind enough to pick me up at the airport the afternoon before, following my overnight flight from London and helped me to meet up with my cousin Sr Annette Farrell, who just happened to be in the same country and city at the same lime! So, I found myself there at the start line, baggage en route to Durban, the ‘Chariots of Fire’ theme rolling for a half hour and finally the traditional public address ‘cock-a-doodle-doo!’ before the off. With others, I climbed over a fence to begin and crossed the start line four minutes later. No turning back....

Impressions en route:

The first 16 miles of this so-called downhill route rose by 700 feet!

There were drink stations every kilometre (water/coke/powerade in sachets and cups) and there was food too — bananas, salty potatoes, chocolates and sweets. A mixed diet. I had ‘asda chewey bars’ too (drug offence?).

The kms were marked off as so many more ‘to go’s. Lots of them. For example, I knew I’d completed the first marathon of the day (42km) when I saw ‘4 7km to go’. Encouraging? I cheered but those around me looked blank: what’s so special about not even halfway? The race coincided with the inauguration of the new President, Thabo Mbeki and Nelson Mandela’s retirement. I heard the new man’s oath as I ran along. He later said ‘all South Africans share the same destiny, regardless of the shape of our noses’!

About halfway, in the appropriately named ‘valley of thousand hills’ (the whole thing was ‘gently undulating’) looking like Great Wall of China-land, w passed a handicapped school for children. They reached out for the hands of the runners and certainly touched them.

There was a lot of physio on offer (‘rubs’), all of it good apart from the team who used cream on one leg and ice on the other. I limped away but eventually recovered. Thanks. How did I survive the distance? By running cautiously and walking up many hills. I was seriously undertrained for 90km, not having 5 hours available at a go to get out for regular 30 mile training sessions! I was happy to trundle along and not wreck myself but delighted with a 2km sprint after 40 miles that I completed at 7.2 minute mile pace. Then I got sane again. Three times along the way there was a ‘cut off’ for those who were running too slow to finish in time. The young Indian I already mentioned gave me the boost I needed— helped by a baying crowd — to sprint around a corner, just as the cops taped off the road. 7km to go. By then the runners rescue vans were ever more in evidence, kerbcrawling to inter the exhausted. I just plodded on with my stroll/jog and went on to complete the distance along with two middle-aged women. Equality rules!

Looking at the paper the next day I saw that half the finishers came in between 10 and 11 hours, so at 11 hrs 341 wasn’t far off the pace. Will I do it again? Unlike the two 79 year olds I met on route (one on for his 34th medal as he overtook me), the answer is: Not ~ likely! And yet.... I recovered in Durban at the appropriate Retired Priests Homes.

 Yours John (Fr J Kenny)

The Parris Shield for the 1999 Club Handicap series went to Anne Cilia who writes-

"I wanted to say how delighted I was to receive the Parris Shield after the last of the Wednesday night 5Km races which ran from April to September.

  It meant a lot to me as I was privileged to know Roy Parris whose example should be an inspiration to us all. The evening was extra special as Roy's widow Marion was able to come to the Club to start the race and present the prizes. It can't have been easy for her but it was good to see her, and Roy would have been proud of her. On behalf of all participants thanks to the organisers and timekeepers."
