SURREY CROSS-COUNTRY LEAGUE DIVISION 1 Saturday 20th October The opening Division 1 League race for both men and women will take place on Saturday over Thames Hare & Hounds' course on Wimbledon Common. The race HQ is off the A3 Kingston Vale, just up from the Robin Hood Roundabout. Here's a map: Kingston Vale . It's a pity that the Cabbage Patch 10 is taking place on the same weekend this year, but nevertheless we need as strong a turnout as we can on Saturday to get the League campaign off to a reasonable start. Both teams have been injury-hit this summer so our main priority will be to cling on to a Division 1 place. For the women, this means finishing in the top twelve of the fifteen Division 1 clubs. The men have a tougher task, their target being the t op seven out of nine - made tougher still by the arrival in Division 1 of the very strong Kent AC, who have worked their way through the divisions s ince joining the League three years ago and will be out to make a wi nning Division 1 debut. The two Leagues are organised differently. The women's has two Divisions but all run together, whereas the men's has separate races at different venues oor each Division. The women race first at 12 noon and their distance is 6km. Junior races for U17s/U15s and U13s follow. At 2.30pm is the U17/U15/U13 boys race followed by the senior 8km at 3pm. The women's League is five to score for the team (B, C etc teams are also included) and the men's is ten to score. In the men's race we once again have the additional interest of an unofficial B team contest with Stragglers - so we need at least 20 runners on the starting line. All are welcome to take part - register with the team manager / captain on the day. CABBAGE PATCH 10 miles Sunday 21st October Nearly 70 Ranelagh Harriers will be amongst the 2,100+ field setting off in Twickenham at 10am on Sunday. HAROLD LEE CUP MOB MATCH v ORION HARRIERS Saturday 27th October The first of our four annual mob matches is away to Orion Harriers on their beautiful but challenging course in Epping Forest on 27th October. A word of explanation for the benefit of new members: the mob matches are amongst our longest-standing fixtures, the annual Orion match dating back to 1920. Only two clubs are involved, and each side fields as many runners as they can. I won't go into the detail of how the scoring is worked out, but essentially everyone counts towards the final result and the Harold Lee Cup goes to the winning side. The team with the higher number of starters has a built-in advantage so it's essential that we muster as many runners as we can. The course is a multi-terrain 7.5 miles, entirely within Epping Forest. Start time is 2.30pm. There are forest tracks, short sections of road, fields and hills. There's usually some mud in parts too. We're the current holders of the Cup, but Orion are mob match specialists and will be hard to beat on their home turf. Do come along if you can - treat the race as a training spin if you don't want a hard run - it's bodies that count! The Orion website gives details of the venue, parking and public transport: Details:. We will also have a minibus leaving the clubhouse at 12 noon sharp. Please contact Mike Peace mpeace1@gmail.com if you plan to use it. MOB MATCH v THAMES HARE & HOUNDS Saturday 17th November Looking further ahead, our second mob match this season is against Thames Hare and Hounds on our own course in Richmond Park. They will be stronger than us at the front but with weight of numbers we can beat them. Put the date in your diary now, and don't forget also that in the evening we enjoy a very convivial and entertaining supper with our visitors in the clubhouse.

THAMES TURBO MARATHON Sophie Frame writes: "I am pleased to announce the fourth Thames Turbo Marathon in Richmond Park on Sunday 25th November 2012. We have three race options for you, all free to enter.......... 1. Full Marathon: A four lap (3 equal laps and one shorter lap) race starting at 8.00am 2. Marathon Relay: Teams of between 3 and 4 runners, race starts at 8.00am 3. Half Marathon: A two lap race starting at 10.00am We will be starting from the large carpark in between Kingston Gate and Robin Hood Gate. The gates to the park open at 7.30am and we will begin registration for all runners from 7.45am onwards. If you're running the half marathon you can register right up until approx 9.50am. To commence the marathon we will take you on a light jog to the line, which is approx 2km from the car park so please use this as your warm up. The first lap will be anti-clockwise, the second clockwise, third anti-clockwise and last lap clockwise. If you're racing in a relay team all you have to do is tag the next runner for them to start. For the half marathon there will be a light jog of approx 1.5km to the start. The first lap is anti-clockwise, the final lap clockwise. Drinks stations are positioned just after Roehampton gate, just after Pembroke Lodge and at the finish line, so in effect they are approx 3.5km apart. At each station we will have water, powerbar gels and powerbar ride shots. The course will be marked with our usual big 'red arrow' signs. If you are unsure of which route to take, the general rule of thumb is to take the trail nearest the road. We will have one or two marshals out on the course but as it's a low key event we haven't gone overboard so you need to be alert! Iif you have any questions, please feel free to ask away sophie.frame@gmail.com ." BRITISH MARATHON RUNNING LEGENDS OF THE 1980s Gabby Collison writes: "I thought that members of Ranelagh Harriers might be interested in a book I have recently had published called 'British Marathon Running Legends of the 1980s', as it contains a biography of one of your members, Hugh Jones. In fact, Hugh is on the cover of the book wearing a Ranelagh Harriers vest! :-) I am not even sure if Hugh himself knows the book is out now, as it was back in 1999 when I carried out the original interview for my MSc. Here is a link to my website and the book: It can also be previewed here:. If anyone from Ranelagh Harriers is interested in buying a copy, please email me directly at gabriellecollison@me.com just quoting the words "Ranelagh Harriers Member" rather than go direct to PayPal and I will offer them a small discount. :-)" WOMEN'S TEAM MANAGER Phil Aiken has kindly agreed to take on the job of women's team manager. Contact Phil or our women's Captain Estelle Damant via the ranelagh.women e-mail address ranelagh.women@gmail.com . RUNNERS' ROWING RACE Paul Gregory is trying to revive the Franckeiss Cup rowing race that used to be contested between ourselves, Blackheath Harriers and sometimes other clubs. The Skiff Club, of which Paul is a member, is offering their facilities and skiffs for training in November and - hopefully - a race on Sunday 2nd December. Double skiffs would be used - two oarsmen and a cox - on a downstream course of approx 3 - 3 minutes. Paul writes: "Skiffing is with two blades, as opposed to rowing which has one oar per crew member. As there is no load on the joints, skiffing is an ideal way to exercise particularly for runners recovering from injury. Skiffing is a much easier skill than rowing to acquire as the boats are inherently stable, and four outings should enable a good race to take place." If you have any rowing experience or would like to have a try or would be prepared to cox, contact Roger Haines at captain@theskiffclub.org.uk. The Skiff Club will ensure that instructors are available for each crew. RUNNER'S WORLD Hannah Doyle writes: "The current issue of Runner's World namechecks Ranelagh, with quotes from our own Anna Scally and Karen Weir in a feature I wrote on running in pregnancy and parenthood." RICHMOND LITERATURE FESTIVAL Nathan Ouriach writes: "This year we are lucky to host Team GB's Greg Searle at our festival in November as he discusses his new book: 'If Not Now, When?'. We hope that you can spread the word at your club and entice other enthusiasts to attend what will inevitably be a fantastic event. Appearing in Hampton School on Monday the 19th of November, Greg will be delighted to meet some of the Borough's own sporting talent. In addition to this, we are also hosting a night with poet, playwright and performer Stephen Cooper as he reveals the engrossing story of 15 soldiers that fought in WW1 and all came from one rugby club in Richmond. Guests can see Cooper on Saturday the 10th of November in the Richmond Lending Library.

WHAT'S HAPPENED *************** SURREY VETERANS CROSS-COUNTRY CHAMPIONSHIPS Saturday 13th October in Richmond Park As usual we hosted this event, though the officiating was in the hands of Surrey Athletics. There was one new departure this year, in that the men over 60 were put in with the women's 6km race, leaving the 10km to the men 40-59. This didn't go down well in all quarters, but if the idea was to avoid having too many runners well tailed off in the 10km then it will be regarded as a success. The 6km event was first, over two short laps down to the Pen Ponds and back up. Sally Dell was our leading runner in 21st place, 7th amongst the over 40s. With Wiebke Kortum and Karen Weir not far behind, we took silver medals in the W35-44 team race. Sonia Rowland, 6th W55, was our leading finisher for the W45 and above team event in which we finished 6th. Our men over 60 were not in contention for individual honours but Mike Peace, Wyn Williams and Peter Fordham packed in well in 6th, 7th and 8th places to take the team golds by a clear margin. The two-lap 10km course takes the runners down Queens Ride, up to and around White Lodge then back down to the Pen Ponds and up the usual way to the finish. Trevor Maguire underlined his recent good form with an excellent run to lead our runners in 9th place overall and take the bronze medal in the M45 age group. He led the M40-49 team into 6th place. The M50-59s were keen to make amends for unluckily missing the medals in the Surrey Road Relays, particularly John Shaw. John ran strongly to score an unexpected victory in a tight finish in the M50 race and secure our only individual gold medal of the afternoon. With Martin Halvey 4th and Andy Bickerstaff 7th it was obviously on the cards that we would take team medals but the strong South London squad would not be ousted from the top spot and we had to be content with silvers. Our final medal came from Chris Owens who, a few weeks short of his 60th birthday, was runner-up in the M55 class. BERLIN MARATHON Sunday 30th September The results for Colin Brett and Stewart Anderson were in the last edition, but also in Berlin were Carola Richter and Michelle Purcell. Carola writes: "We (my partner and I) are currently in Europe and as we had nothing else to do (LOL) we ran the Berlin Marathon. And of course I ran in my blue colours! That's compulsory, right! Once a Ranelagh always a Ranelagh. I thought I would go close to my PB of 3:30:00 but the last few months were really busy buying a new house, a new job and still settling in to my new home country hence the training was far from ideal. So I decided to settle down for a 3:40ish time. I never run with any one in a race let alone side by side but as my partner was running his first marathon and we trained together I thought it would be nice to complete the race together. Guess what, I really enjoyed it. Although from km 37 it was really hard going and the lack of training and the mental doubts kicked in. I promised to myself to retire from marathon running by km 39 and almost wanted to give up by 40. But somehow my partner managed to drag me along, considering this was his first attempt. We had perfect splits for a 3:40:00 but lost 3 minutes on the last 5km but running through the finish line together was priceless and worth the pain. As for the retirement....well, we all know once hooked...never to give up. I'm already thinking which marathon I can run next year without breaking the bank as travelling to Europe every year becomes a bit of a problem with the bank manager. We're currently in Paris enjoying the Eiffel Tower and the wine. One more week and we are back in Australia when our summer finally and hopefully will kick in. A big hello to everyone a the club." 998 Carola Richter 3:48.41 (chip time 3:46.05) 4214 Michelle Purcell 4:39.19 (4:26.31) KINGFIELD CANTER 2.85 miles handicap Wednesday 3rd October 1 H Rowntree (unatt) 24.41 (actual time 19.11) 13 Steve Rowland 26.42 (20.42) also Alan Davidson (21.47) CHICAGO MARATHON Sunday 7th October Phil Jackson ran a brilliantly judged even-paced race to finish 7th in the over 60 category and move into third place in the Ranelagh over 60 rankings. 1 T Kedebe (Ethiopia) 2:04.38 2212 Phil Jackson 3:16.53 ROYAL PARKS HALF MARATHON Sunday 7th October Doc Martin reports: "I have been so depressed and fed up with my running which had been steadily deteriorating until on August 28 I could no longer keep up with the running group and had to run gently home. My left hamstring was giving me agony. The following week was even worse. I could not even do the warm up session and when I quit and tried to run home I could not and had to walk much of the way. I decided to have a week off but was very concerned as I had a place running for Shelter in the Royal Parks Half on October 7th. I then decided to train very gently and by myself. Starting off very gently, 12 minute miles, more of a fast walk and speeding up slightly to 10 minute ones. Initially I did 2 miles. I ran again every few days, always keeping the first mile very slow and increasing the distance by a mile every run. One morning I ran 9 miles in just sub 9 minutes, again with the slow start. Not record breaking but I was overjoyed! I hoped to complete the Half in under 2 hours. It would be a personal worst but not bad for someone who could not run at all three weeks ago. You do not mend so fast at 62! Unfortunately things have not been so good since then. My left hamstring gave way after 7 miles on Friday September 28 and I had to hobble and get a lift home. I was not happy! A week's complete rest then the half marathon on October 7th. I did not sleep the night before. So worried that I would break down in the first mile. Came the race. Tube trains packed. Buzz of excitement everywhere. Gnawing in the pit of my stomach. Race started. I held back. Then I noticed something very odd. I was running at 7.30 minute miles. I have barely been able to run 9 minute miles recently. After a a while I easily passed the 9 min pacer. Of course, it could not last and I slowed to 8.30 but was really enjoying a beautiful run through the centre of London and its parks. I am delighted to have finished in 1.49.55. Nowhere near a personal best but not worst and far better than I could have hoped for. If you would like to see some horror pictures, go to marathon-photos It does prove that you can do it if you try. The fact that I cannot walk two days later is irrelevant. One of the runners at the club said I always give it everything I've got. This seems to prove it. I want to do a marathon in under 4 hours when I am 65 in 3 years time. Maybe I am on schedule!" The official results don't list clubs, so we had probably more runners than those listed below - which are headed by a PB for Karen Weir. 1 M Bean (B&H) 1:12.32 (chip time 1:12.32) 566 Karen Weir 1:35.08 (1:34.46) 3029 Martin Wolfson 1:56.24 (1:49.55) ROYAL PARKS ULTRA MARATHON 50km Sunday 7th October Heather wanted to see more of the Parks! 1 D Theodorakakos 3:25.19 84 Heather Martingell 5:03.57 WINDSOR HALF MARATHON Sunday 7th October Glutton for punishment Stewart Anderson ran well only a week after the Berlin Marathon, with a parkrun "loosener" on Saturday into the bargain! Christine Palmer cracked the 100 minutes barrier for the first time. 1 A Miller (Datchet) 1:13.29 (chip time 1:13.29) 115 Stewart Anderson 1:31.10 (1:30.57) 151 Alberto Esguevillas 1:32.53 (1:32.35) 440 Christine Palmer 1:39.59 (1:39.01) 3379 John Scally 2:27.25 (2:20.52) SURREY BADGER HALF MARATHON Sunday 7th October at Denbies Vineyard, Dorking Kate Comisso reports: "I have fond memories of running the Surrey Badger Half Marathon a couple of years ago, and a revised course of less road and more spectacular Surrey countryside made this year's event even more special. The race starts with an off-road loop around Denbies vineyard in Dorking, followed by a regrettably long stretch of pavement, but the hills, once you hit them, are worth the wait. Knobbly paths and pretty trails - just perfect. The plentiful marshals and signposts made it all but impossible to get lost. It's certainly not a fast course, but a very satisfying one, and I was quite happy with finishing 4th lady." 1 M Taylor 1:19.07 (chip time 1:19.07) 50 Kate Comisso 1:40.13 (1:40.06) PERSEVERANCE 10km Sunday 7th October at Wimbledon Park This is essentially two laps of the Surrey Road Relay course. Bill Neely was technically the first finisher in the over 50 category - though he had two over 60s in front of him! 1 P Owor (Belgrave) 33.29 17 Bill Neely 41.24 KOSICE PEACE HALF MARATHON Sunday 7th October in Kosice, Slovakia 1 T Sahadja (Slovakia) 1:10.31 1403 Maya Farah 2:13.23 TORONTO WATERFRONT MARATHON Sunday 14th October From The Toronto Star: "Ed Whitlock set a new world record for the fastest time for an 81-year-old when he crossed the finish line at the Waterfront Marathon. From a technical standpoint, Whitlock may not have run his best race. He admitted he started quickly and began to fade midway through. But with a time of 3:30:29, he has plenty to celebrate. The previous record for an 81-year-old was 3:47:04. Whitlock, who lives in Milton but grew up in London, England, says he races against the clock more than he does against others. Nevertheless, he still gets a lift when he leaves other runners behind. "It's always an ego boost when you pass people," he said. "Unfortunately today, there were a hell of a lot more people passing me than I was passing them," he added with a laugh.
