CHAMPIONSHIP ENTRIES Championship entries for the South of the Thames (Dec 15th in Richmond Park (Kingston)), Surrey (Jan 5th at Lloyd Park, Croydon), South of England (Jan 26th at Parliament Hill) and National (Feb 23rd at Sunderland) all have to be submitted soon. The races are all open to everyone (though for the Surreys you need to have been born or live in Surrey / SW London) but entries have to be made well in advance. If you'd like to take part in any of them please contact the Captains / Team Managers (see What's Coming below). SAVILL GARDEN JUNIOR parkrun John Ricketts writes: "The next monthly 2km Savill Garden Juniors parkrun is being held this Sunday 2nd December at 09:30 at the Savill Garden car park, Windsor Great Park. Anyone under 14 on 1 September can run. If they do not already have a parkrun barcode they need to go to www.parkrun.org.uk/savillgardenjuniors and register there, and then bring their barcode on the day. Directions to Savill Garden and a description of the course are on the website. Why not make a morning of it? The Savill Building opens at 10:00 for coffee and Christmas shopping and access to The Savill Garden is free. Any adults wanting to volunteer to help with the parkrun should contact email@example.com. The event is held on the first Sunday of the month at 09:30 and offers juniors an alternative to the Bushy Park Juniors parkrun." RUNNERS' ROWING RACE Paul Gregory's attempts to revive the Franckeiss Cup runners' rowing race have been thwarted - temporarily - by the weather. The heavy rain we have been experiencing over the past few weeks has caused conditions on the river to be unsafe and Paul has rescheduled the event for late January - the exact date to be agreed later. The race is to be between two-person skiffs and we had one men's pair and one women's pair from Ranelagh lined up to contest the race against Thames H&H, Hercules Wimbledon and possibly others. The delay will allow more time for coaching by Skiff Club members as soon as river conditions allow, and will also permit more crews to join the fray. So if anyone is interested in having a go, please contact Paul Gregory firstname.lastname@example.org - no experience necessary. INTERVIEW WITH parkrun FOUNDER PAUL S-H Paul Sinton-Hewitt talked to Sam Petherick who has written a nice account of the growth of the parkrun phenomenon here . HOPE TOUR Hannah Doyle writes: "A friend of mine, Kerry, at Runner's World magazine, has spent this year doing some amazing running feats for charity - one a month as part of the 12 in12 project, raising money for HopeHIV. For his last challenge, he and five others are running 12 marathons in 12 days from Yorkshire to London and looking for as many runners as possible to join them on different legs of the route. If anyone fancies a pre-Christmas jog, the last two legs are from Windsor to Richmond, on 22nd Dec, then from Richmond to the Mall, on 23rd. People are welcome to join for all/any parts of the route, although they do ask you to try and raise a little sponsorship or donate. They're trying to get as much media coverage as possible and hope to have TV crews at the finish. If you can't run, do look out for a group of knackered-looking runners in Richmond on 22/23rd and give them a massive pat on the back. Find out more here: and www.the12in12.com/hope-tour ." RICHMOND HALF MARATHON Sunday 5th May 2013 Entries are now closed.

WHAT'S HAPPENED *************** MOB MATCH v THAMES HARE & HOUNDS Saturday 17th November 7.79 miles in Richmond Park The Park was quite wet underfoot for our annual mob match against Thames, but running conditions were pretty good. We mustered a fair turnout of 60, a dozen or so more than our visitors. As expected from the club that is currently leading both the men's and women's Surrey Leagues, the Thames team was a strong one. We expected not to match them at the head of the field - though Sam Perkins and Phil Killingley gave us an interest in the top ten - but we hoped we might be able to pull back some of the early deficit with a strong mid-field presence. Alas, it was not to be. On this occasion Thames had the depth too, and only Carl Selya-Hammer added to the Ranelagh tally in the top twenty home. Indeed, it was not until the 30s that blue vests started appearing in any numbers, and by then it was far too late for us to mount a serious challenge. Scoring 44 a side Thames ran out the winners by over 1200 points. Sam and Phil are rarely far apart in races at the moment and it was Sam who came out on top this time, finishing 8th in 44.24 just a few metres ahead of Phil. Carl finished 18th almost submerged under a sea of saltires. Another ten Thames crossed the line and then came a trio of Ranelagh over 50s, in a battle to decide the destination of two of the trophies that were being contested today - for this race also formed our club vets championships for the Hastings Cup (over 40s), the McDowell Salver (over 50s) and the Maslin Mug (over 60s). John Shaw won the battle, finishing just over 30 seconds ahead of David Wright with Andy Bickerstaff hot on David's heels. John will take home the Hastings Cup and this means that the McDowell Salver will go to the second over 50, David Wright. The Maslin Mug went by a clear margin to brand new over 60 Chris Owens. Our leading woman today was Wiebke Kortum, ahead of Sandra Prosser and Marion Rayner. It was good to see a few new faces trying their first mob match, as well as a couple of visiting "blasts from the past" Dave Muckersie and Rob Wise. The vets' sealed handicap went to Christian Vaughan, two minutes clear of David Wright and Chris Read. Back at the clubhouse, while we enjoyed another of Carol Barnshaw's sumptuous teas, it was revealed that this was David Wright's 150th mob match. For almost 25 years after joining the club as a school leaver he never missed a single mob match, only to be laid low by a bout of flu when in sight of his 100th consecutive. But he's not missed another one since! In recognition of this milestone - surely unequalled in any of the mob match clubs - David was presented with an engraved tankard. David writes: "I was very touched and surprised with the presentation for my 150th mob match on Saturday. Thank you so much, it means masses to me. Difficult to know how to respond - hence the lack of a speech - but I think the whole thing comes back to Ranelagh Harriers incorporated. This club has meant so much to me over the past 38 years for which I have to thank, once again, my old chemistry teacher Jim Forrest (who himself has clocked up 117 mob matches) who persuaded me to run the mob match against SLH in December 1974 and join this great club. It really is rather sad that I've been available for 150 Saturday afternoons since then but in many ways this again reflects so well on the club because the four 'mobs' are the first things that go in the diary when the fixtures secretary publishes the year ahead every August. I remember once, some twenty years ago, an Australian member Geoff Nicholson (he once ran 19.59 for the Thomas Cup course) said he loved the fact that he'd been back in Australia for a number of years but knew he'd be able to walk into The Dysart Arms, as it was, and be able to pick up on a conversation with a Ranelagh member that he'd started a few years earlier. Sadly The Dysart is not what it was, but the clubhouse has usurped this and The Roebuck at the top of the hill replicates the pub atmosphere as I found out this weekend. Two old members from the 1980's, Dave Muckersie & Rob Wise, ran the mob match, their first time back at the club for some 25 years. They were welcomed back by those who knew them in such a lovely way, conversations flowed as if they'd never been away. That to me is the ethos of Ranelagh and long may it continue. Sadly because I live so far away down deep in the Cotswolds, I don't know a lot of today's members but that's a good thing because it means the club continues to move forward. Long standing members are important but the driving force behind the club must be those who are around today. The standard in yesterday's mob match was of the highest order, it was just a shame that Ranelagh couldn't compete at the front with what is an incredibly strong Thames outfit. It does, however, beg the question that if they can do it why can't we? Ranelagh has so much going for it, a wonderful clubhouse, vibrant membership, captive marketplace ... I just think a bit of belief, positive thinking and concerted group effort can take the club up to another level. Ranelagh has been closely involved with two major seismic changes to the sport in recent times, namely the London Marathon and parkrun through Chris Brasher / John Disley and Paul Sinton-Hewitt, two events that have changed the sport massively. The club should be incredibly proud of these achievements. However, for running to continue to prosper, the club system needs to survive and races such as mob matches, which unlike most athletics events involve everybody who turns up and therefore personify club sport, must be seen to prevail. Ranelagh turned out 60 plus yesterday, a decent number but not as many as should have been there. This may be partly because of parkrun: participants are besotted by taking part in this fantastic event but I think there needs to be a bit of balance here, by all means take part in parkrun but don't forget club athletics at its best and the joys of running on different courses with the camaraderie of team sport. This has to be so important in keeping the club spirit going forward and getting Ranelagh up to its 150th anniversary, by which time I may well be up to 200 of these mob matches! Ranelagh Ranelagh Rah Rah Rah!" Four other mob match centurions - Steve Rowland, Mike Peace, Jim Forrest and Clive Naish - added to their tallies while Bill Harvey inched closer to the magic 100. Back at the clubhouse some 25 or so members and visitors sat down to a fish and chip supper followed by the John Bryant show and the Michele Gibson joke book. Thanks to Michele and Andy Hayward for organising and Mike White for the beer. SOUTH OF THE THAMES 5 MILES CHAMPIONSHIP Saturday 24th November at Reigate It was a cold wet day at Reigate's Priory Park for the shorter of the two South of the Thames championship races. There hadn't been a great deal of interest from Ranelagh and we did not complete a full men's team but the women placed 9th led by Becky Hall, an excellent 15th in her first championship cross-country race and beating stalwart Marie Synnott-Wells (19th) for the first time.BRECON BEACONS ULTRA Saturday 17th November Simon Martin reports: "154 individuals of questionable sanity, including me and Colin Brett, started the Brecon Beacons ultra on Saturday 17 November. Thankfully the weather was generally quite reasonable. That's where the good news stops! The course profile and terrain were absolutely brutal and the race took its toll with 29 DNFs. The total ascent and descent was about 2,000 metres over the 46 mile course (2 x 23 mile loops). It was very steep in parts and the ground underfoot was often difficult to negotiate - including scree, large stones or even rocks. Quite often these hazards were hidden by mud, leaves and what comes out of the rear end of sheep and cows. I suffered some discomfort throughout the race after turning my ankle only 500 metres after the start. Colin had problems of his own a few miles later. When we went up the first hill (3k with an average incline of 15%) the weather suddenly deteriorated. It became wet and foggy so I layered up. Going up that hill I had an inkling all was not well with Colin. Although he was wearing fewer layers than me he was sweating even more profusely than usual and looked fairly rough! Colin successfully navigated the remainder of the first loop before sensibly retiring (for some R&R with the local wildlife it is rumoured!). The exertion of such a tough race was too much just a couple of weeks after he had had a virus. Although the race distance was theoretically about 46 miles (74k), I managed to sneak in an extra few kilometres due to my navigational incompetency! I was delighted to finish as it was a tough race for the various reasons I described. Back in Richmond later that evening nursing my second gin and tonic, I thought briefly about the unfortunate, but hardy, runners who were still on the course and yet to finish... cheers to them! I found it hard enough running the course in daylight." 1 D Carter (Elagen) 6:34.40 (1st lap 3:03.01) 46 Simon Martin 9:21.38 (4:19.10) nf Colin Brett (4:19.43) GOSPORT HALF MARATHON Sunday 18th November PBs for both Becky and Rob. 1 M Revier (Soton) 68.22 (chip time 68.22) 330 Rob Curtis 93.37 (93.13) 334 Becky Hall 93.43 (93.19) BROOKS BRIGHTON 10km Sunday 18th November In perfect conditionds there were PBs for Ben (first time inside 40 mins) and Cathy, 1 P Martelletti (VPH&TH) 30.00 (chip time 30.00) 269 Ben Shore 40.14 (39.59) 371 Marie Synnott-Wells 42.00 (41.42) 423 Neil Walford 42.32 (42.20) 463 Phil Aiken 43.16 (42.41) 769 Cathy Jones 47.02 (45.53) 871 Heather Martingell 48.03 (47.05) OLD DEER PARK 10km Sunday 18th November 1 M Bruce (Kent) 32.52 (chip time 32.52) 242 Michelle Purcell 49.38 (49.24) BEDDINGTON PARK 10km Sunday 18th November 1 C Dyson (unatt) 36.17 72 Alan Meaden 61.22 75 David Meaden 62.59 THAMES TURBO MARATHON & HALF MARATHON Sunday 25th November Simon Martin writes: "I followed the Brecon Beacons ultra with the Thames Turbo marathon in Richmond Park only eight days later! It was a windy and undulating four lap course. My legs help up reasonably well. On a course that measured 0.5 miles over distance by common consensus, I managed a comfortable 3.38." Simon and Bruce McLaren were two of only seven takers for the full marathon but the half attracted about forty. Andy Bickerstaff was never far off the leaders and was beaten for third place by just nine seconds.

However austerity hit the Paphos Aphrodite Half Marathon, with the generous financial prizes being replaced this year with trophies only. There were ideal conditions for the 5k with a flat, fast course, no wind and 25C. Kristopher Russell (a Brit) was first in 17.45 and I was happy with 12th (out of 80) in 22.08. I was pleased to note that the original official times have been corrected as previously we were all credited with times 14 seconds quicker than our performances deserved! Andrey Leyman of Russia won the half in a canter in 1.09.30 and there was a rather modest time for the first lady of 1.31.56 (Brit Julia Tully).The races started and finished at the relatively new modern stadium facility but the 400 metres track was obviously not measured by Hugh Jones as it is actually 425 metres (not a p.b. one). There was time left for a training run in the Amathusa hills - noting the sofa dumped four years ago is still in position and wearing well - before swapping 25C for 2C back in the UK."
