It's 5 miles and all members are welcome to take part. Please be at the clubhouse by 2.30pm to register. SURREY CROSS-COUNTRY LEAGUE The first races in the Surrey League programme take place on Saturday 8th October. Our men's team gained promotion back to Division 1 last season, so a good start is vital if we are to hold our position. It's ten to score for the team, but this year we also have an unofficial B team competition with the Stragglers - so we need a minimum of twenty runners in each race, but more importantly we need everyone who might be in with a chance of making the A team. Register on the day. The venue is Wimbledon Common, start time 3pm for seniors, 2.30pm for juniors - more details will be on our website.. Our women's team kick off their Division 1 campaign at Lightwater Country Park, close to junction 3 of the M3. Again, a good start is vital. The senior race starts at 12 noon, followed by the junior events. Register on the day. CABBAGE PATCH 10 miles Sunday 16th October at Twickenham Entries have now topped 1,600 for the popular Cabbage Patch 10, including over 40 from Ranelagh. The entry limit is 2,000 so space is running out. If you're thinking of taking part, get your entry in without delay. Details:. SURREY VETERANS CROSS-COUNTRY CHAMPIONSHIPS As usual, this is unfortunately the day before the Cabbage Patch 10. Nevertheless, it would be nice to see a good turnout from those not doing the 10. We host the event in Richmond Park, though it's organised by the Surrey County AA and entries must be made to them in advance. Contact the Captains if you are interested. The women's race is over 6km at 2.30pm and there are separate championships in 5 year age groups from 35 upwards. The men run 10km at 3pm and there are 5 year age groups from 40 upwards. ORION CENTENARY MOB MATCH Our friends at Orion Harriers are celebrating their centenary this year and as part of the celebrations they are following our example in hosting a "mass mob match" with all of the traditional mob match clubs invited.

WHAT'S HAPPENED *************** OPENING RUN and THOMAS CUP 3.91 miles handicap Saturday 3rd September in Richmond Park The opening of our 131st season saw a good crowd of nearly 80 assembling for the club photograph taken with his usual efficiency by Ken Powley - you can see the evidence here: Club Photo. Of those, 60 took numbers for the 111th running of the Thomas Cup handicap. "Limit" time for the day was 18mins.10secs, at which time a group of three was set off including Savithri Bartlett. New member Savithri was running as a guest but soon put her cards on the table and left her two companions well behind. She held onto the lead until very late in the proceedings, but leading the charge behind her was Angus Cater. Angus revealed afterwards that he had been putting in some extra training with an eye to running well in the Bristol Half Marathon the following week. Certainly there was an extra edge in his running and he powered past Savithri to win by more than 40 seconds - indeed he was well over a minute clear of official second-placer Colin Brett who had run through the field from a handicap mark of 5mins 12secs. Next across the line were two more guests, Jo Peace and Bruce McLaren, so the bronze medal went to next home Chris Hunton, who just held off Kate Woodhouse. Angus also later revealed that this was his first handicap win in 38 years of membership, so I don't think anyone will begrudge him the victory. Fastest time of the day was set by Peter Haarer on 22.03, ahead of Chris Bundhun (24.00) and John Shaw (24.39). On the women's side it was Kate Woodhouse on 27.33 from Wiebke Kortum (29.14) and Lara Werrett (30.35). SURREY ROAD RELAY CHAMPIONSHIPS Saturday 10th September at Wimbledon Park It was a warm and sticky day for September, and although the wind blew up during the afternoon the promised showers only manifested themselves at the post-race presentation, and then only as a few drops. For the senior men Phil Killingley was put on the opening stage and ran a well-judged race to finish in a fine second place. Phil's 14.57 was just ten seconds slower than last year and stood as the fifth fastest time of the day. To Mark Herbert went the unenviable task of taking over from Phil, and Mark inevitably lost a few places but recorded a solid 17.26. That set the pattern for the next three stages as Chris Bundhun, Ed Barker and Ted Mockett all recorded times within a few seconds of Mark. Phil Aiken brought the team home in 13th place. Our men over 50 team collected our only medals of the day, moving up to the silver medal spot after last year's bronzes. John Ricketts ran a good opener, Steve Rowland and Mike Peace kept us in the hunt and John Shaw anchored in great style. We crossed the line third, but both teams ahead were from South London Harriers and only a club's first team is eligible for county championship medals. We therefore effectively moved up to second place. Andy Hayward ran solo on the first stage for an incomplete B team. In the women's race our available talent was divided between senior and over 35 teams. Lee Coole opened for the seniors and recorded 20.37 with both Sandra Prosser and Sonia Rowland not far behind. Sandra's team went no further but Lee was followed up by Louise Piears, Daniela Mingham - whose 20.05 was our fastest of the day - and Michelle Davies, and they finished in 9th place. In the over 35 SSSS team, Sonia handed on to Sandra Forrest, then Sally Bamford and Sharon Dooley, and they placed 5th. BURNHAM BEECHES HALF MARATHON Sunday 21st August Heather Martingell's performance was recorded in the last e-news, but what we didn't know was that Heather had won the gold medal in the W45 category of the Southern Counties vets championship. Well done, Heather! RYEDALE RUN 10 miles Sunday 4th September at Malton, North Yorkshire Gavin Jones was visiting the UK from Rome and took the opportunity to claim top place in Ranelagh's over 50 rankings for ten miles. On a flattish course he won the Ryedale 10 by over a minute in the excellent time of 56.16.

Ranelagh filled 2nd, 3rd and 4th places today. 1 R Baggott (Woking) 24.48 (actual time 17.03) 2 Alan Davidson 25.06 (20.51) 3 Steve Rowland 25.33 (19.03) 4 Louise Piears 25.40 (20.25) 9 Jim Forrest 26.16 (22.16) 11 Sonia Rowland 26.28 (20.28) LONDON DUATHLON Sunday 11th September in Richmond Park Simon Burrell reports: "I wouldn't normally provide a race report for a multi-sport event but I made an exception for the 2011 London Duathlon because: 1 It was in our own beautiful Richmond Park. 2 It involved quite a lot of running (10k + 5k). 3 I really enjoyed it. This was my fourth attempt at the event and I was looking to build on my gradually improving times over the years. Last year was 1:52, so this time sub-1:50 was the target. The start is near to Roehampton gate and the challenge distance involves a 10k towards Richmond gate, left at Ham Cross, past the ballet school and left again at Robin Hood gate before heading back to Roehampton. Then a hop onto the bike for two laps of the road clockwise (22k) and a final 5k through Sheen Cross, past the ballet school (ouch!) and left at Robin Hood gate again before finishing back at Roehampton gate. I am starting to get to know how to pace these multi-discipline events, so was aiming for a restrained 45 min 10k (best is about 41:30) to avoid blowing up later, especially on the second run. However, I hadn't counted on the testosterone levels involved in starting alongside a small group of people I know of similar abilities from the RGActive Race Team. So 40 mins and 47 secs later I was heading into transition. Admittedly the course was a bit short (we think 9.88k), but that was still a blistering pace for me and perhaps a rookie mistake? I ran out of transition with the bike and attempted a running mount, a manoeuvre which seems to work well in training, but nearly pole-axed me on this occasion. The immediate pain gave me a small distraction from the fact that my legs didn't seem to want to move in a circular motion and I thought my chances of slowing were high. I worked out that if I got out onto the second run leg by 1:38 I might just have a chance at my goal time. As it happened I was some way within that but I still had the small matter of a 5k run to complete. For anyone who hasn't done two competitive runs with a competitive bike leg between, I urge you to give it a go - there really is nothing like the feeling of shrieking cramps and jelly-leggedness that this entails - the first time I experienced this I thought a sniper had simultaneously shot me in both legs. So it was a battle to keep going with the legs screaming for me to stop and the mind trying to think how great it would feel if I waited until the finish line before collapsing - a bit like the last 2 miles of a marathon, but faster! The second run came in at 20:29 (best is 19:47), which was respectable as it was a bit up and down and my legs felt like someone else's, but still hurt like they were my own. Astonishingly, I managed an overall 1:44.45, which just proves that life (at least of the athletic variety) can indeed start at 47. I managed 58th (out of a 1,284) and 6th in the M45-49 category (out of about 120 other follically-challenged guys). As anyone in the club will know, I'm never likely to win a running race on merit, so this was a great feeling for me and spurred me on to train even harder. Lorna Smith also managed a cracking result on the day, pulling in an excellent time of 2:24.50, a week after completing another warm-up duathlon in Bushy Park. So, it's the Winter Ballbuster at Box Hill next (hilly 8M/24M/8M) - do I never learn!" 1 C Dettmar 1:30.40 (34.17 / 1.32 / 36.46 / 0.34 / 17.32) 58 Simon Burrell 1:44.45 (40.47 / 1.29 / 41.04 / 0.57 / 20.29) 1001 Lorna Smith 2:24.50 (58.52 / 1.39 / 54.50 / 1.42 / 27.49) BRISTOL HALF MARATHON Sunday 11th September Angus Cater writes: "We had an excellent day at the Bristol 1/2 M.

This comes from Cycling Weekly: "David Millar has set an unofficial time trial record for a circuit of Richmond Park in London, clocking 13 minutes and 35 seconds around the 6.7 mile circuit on Tuesday. Millar was in London this week to attend the launch of his new autobiography, Racing Through the Dark: The Fall and Rise of David Millar on Monday evening. Whilst the Scotsman was in London, he decided to organise a time trial around the park with his 'private cycling club' along with several other local cyclists from various clubs. Millar's time of 13:35 over 6.7 miles means he completed the loop in just a shade under 30mph - 29.595mph (47.63kmh). Impressive, but also faster than Richmond Park's road speed limit, which was lowered to 20mph in 2004. Cycling Weekly spoke to Millar Friday lunchtime about the ride. Now back at his home in Girona he explained that he had since written to the Royal Parks. 'I apologised profusely, and explained that it was all down to my naivety. I had no idea of the rules.'"
