 Andy Bickerstaff writes:
 "As a corollary to the success of flag marking for the Thomas Cup can I
 plead for some help marking the courses for the Page Cup and the Surrey
 Vets. This entails plodding round with a screwdriver (to make the hole for
 the flag, what else!) and a bag of flags an hour or two before the race. I
 don't mind doing it but would rather not do every race. Can I express my
 gratitude to Mark Herbert, who ran the Thomas Cup and then collected stray
 flags, as well as Ivan Boggis who did the new turn (vital as someone had
 pinched a couple here between me putting them out and him arriving at the
 spot) and also collected flags as did Christian Vaughan and Simon and
 Deborah Burrell. Thanks go also to Robin and Julie Drummond who trooped
 round for years doing the job." 

 Alex Horne writes:
 "Would you like a functional check up, want to get rid of a persisting
 injury or just a rub down?
 My name is Alex and I'm a chiropractor who has just moved and is working in
 the Richmond area. I will be providing taster sessions to members both
 before (6pm-7pm) and also after Tuesday training sessions for anyone with an
 injury, or who just wants a friendly chat! I am a keen sportsman with a big
 interest in rugby but have been running for years and working with lots of
 different sports teams, so don't be shy, pop over and just ask me anything!
 Feel free to get in touch with any queries: alexhornechiropractic@gmail.com."

 Race Director Sandra Forrest writes:
 "The Half Marathon Team needs a replacement for Philippa Kitchen, who is
 expecting a baby in March (congratulations Philippa and Rob!). Philippa is
 responsible for permissions, hiring the loos, hiring the man with the van,

 SURREY COUNTY ROAD RELAY CHAMPIONSHIPS  Saturday 14th September at Wimbledon
 We came away from Wimbledon Park with one set of medals, but otherwise "near
 miss" was the theme of the day. Our men over 50 team of Mick Lane, Stephen
 Logue, Martin Halvey and Paul Rider must take the plaudits as our sole medal
 winners, finishing in the runner-up spot behind perennial vets champions
 South London Harriers. Mick ran the team's fastest lap on the opener,
 bringing us home in a solid third place. Stephen maintained that position,
 then Martin - fresh from two marathons in two weeks - brought us up to
 second, which Paul comfortably held on to on the anchor. 

 For the rest, nearest of the near-misses was by our men over 60. Phil
 Jackson set us off in fourth place then Peter Fordham, suffering with a
 heavy cold, slipped to sixth. One of the teams ahead was ineligible for the
 county championship so in real terms we were holding fifth place. Mike Peace
 on the anchor took more than a minute off the two teams ahead but to no
 avail. He crossed the line an agonising three seconds behind the bronze
 medallists and seventeen seconds behind the silvers. Our men over 40 held
 third for the first three stages thanks to Paul Doyle, Trevor Maguire and
 brand-new vet Vaughan Ramsay, but Phil Aiken on the anchor was up against
 some fast men and we slipped out of the medals into fifth place.

 Our senior men's team was never in contention for the medals but finished a
 good sixth in the county championship. Fastest lap was Alex Harrison's 16.02
 on the anchor, with Nick Twomey, Peter Faull and Ted Mockett also inside 17
 minutes and Lars Lundqvist and Marc Snaith a little outside. Our ineligible
 B team finished 18th with Mark Herbert turning in a sub-17 run. 

 Unfortunately we had only two women taking part this year. Sonia and Marie
 ran in the W45 race and actually crossed the line in third place but were of
 course ineligible for the medals as Sonia ran twice.

 SOUTH OF ENGLAND ROAD RELAY CHAMPIONSIPS  Sunday 22nd September at Rushmoor
 Arena, Aldershot
 The South of England relays took place as usual at the once-splendid
 Rushmoor Arena, now sadly all but abandoned by the Army and gradually
 crumbling away. And as usual also the races took place to the backdrop of
 throaty engines and squealing tyres from the adjacent stock-car racing.
 Nevertheless it remains a great venue for relays with easy access, plenty of
 parking and an enclosed traffic-free testing course.     

 The first event on Sunday was the veterans four-stage relay, in which we had
 entered only an over 60s team. Mike, Peter, Phil and Steve made the top ten
 in their age group - it need not be mentioned how many teams finished! 

 It was good to see two full Ranelagh senior teams taking part in a field of
 close to one hundred teams and it will be valuable experience even if we
 finished well down the field. The Southern Six-Stage is a fearsomely
 high-class event, the opening stage even more so. Nick Twomey was hurled
 into the fray for Ranelagh's A team and he hung on well for 77th place,
 teeing up Ian Kenton to run the team's fastest lap of 20.52 in picking up
 fourteen places on lap two. Mark Herbert, Peter Faull and Ted Mockett all
 ran in the 22 minutes bracket and we were in 66th place when skipper Phil
 Killingley took over for the anchor. He had something of a lonely run but
 picked up a couple of places with a time just six seconds slower than Ian.
 For the B team Lars Lundqvist finished the opening lap in 89th place and we
 gradually progressed during the afternoon to 79th. Fastest time was Marc
 Snaith's 22.22.      

 BRIDGES 2.3 miles handicap  Wednesday 11th September at Westminster

 26  John Hanscomb          23.54  (26.54)   

 THAMES PATH CHALLENGE 100km  Saturday 14th September   Putney to Henley on
 Bruce McLaren reports:
 "There were a few bits of the Thames Path I hadn't run along so I discovered
 this race and thought it would be a great way to fill in the gaps.  I
 therefore found myself on the start line in Putney at 6:45am on Saturday
 14th ready for a trot to Henley on Thames and the little matter of 100km of

 The first marathon went well and pacing was very comfortable but I noticed
 that 5km out from the halfway point I was slowing down.  I made it to the
 50km mark in 4:45 and naively thought that sub 10 might be possible.  Fool!
 My real target was under 11 hours so I was fortunately able to dismiss the
 sub 10 time a few kms outside Runnymede.  It simply was not possible to get
 anywhere near the pace I had managed in the first half as my legs began to
 ache. It is a beautiful route and the miles slipped past.  By 75km I was
 beginning to question why I was doing this.  It was so painful to start
 running, and took so long to clear the lactic acid and get to a pace which
 was comfortable (about 11 min/ miles by this stage) that I really didn't
 want to stop once I got going but then you just run out of puff and you have
 to take a walk.  Repeat.  

 Things were good until the 90km mark when the organisers thought it would be
 a good idea to divert from the Thames Path and take to the hills, joining
 the Chiltern Way for 5kms into Henley.  By this stage I could only run on
 the flat, uphill was impossible and downhill too painful.  To add some spice
 the organisers then decided that if running 100km was not mentally
 challenging enough they would up the psychological stakes by getting you
 into Henley (i.e. the finish) but make you run another 5km back down stream.
 But it wasn't.  2.5km from the finish you have to run within 10 yards of the
 finish and then loop around.  Mental hell.  I crossed the line in 10:37 and
 very nearly had a Steve Redgrave never again moment.  Fortunately I
 refrained as I discovered a few days later that I had finished 8th overall
 so I'm now looking for the next one!"

 Chris Owens reports:
 "As well as those blokes from Yorkshire, a few other people braved the
 Serpentine last weekend, doing the (very) non-elite Age Group World
 Championships. This allows you to get up at 4am, drive to Knightsbridge on
 empty roads (a truly unique experience), and fumble about with your kit in a
 muddy field in the dark. Yes, I'd forgotten my head torch....
 However soon enough I was encased in rubber, and waiting with a group of
 fellow competitors to be allowed to leap into the murky water. We'd just
 heard the swim distance had been halved (1500m to 750m), due to the low AIR
 temperature. After spending a year training and thinking about a specific
 event, we were one puzzled bunch. Anyway, on with the show - the water felt
 warm enough and we duly  thrashed off to face our next challenge - after
 250m or so the course turned due east, and with the sun just over the
 horizon, nothing could be seen of the buoys marking the course. Luckily some
 of the support kayaks lined up to keep us more or less on course. Up out of
 the water, the run to transition was one of the longest I'd experienced -
 Tuesday night reps helped here - although I don't remember doing any in a
 wetsuit - perhaps an option for January in future? Onto the 40km bike course
 which gave our event a brilliant tour of central London - Hyde Park,
 followed by Wellington Arch, Buckingham Palace, Parliament Square,
 Whitehall, the Embankment to Tower Hill and back, Trafalgar Square, the Mall
 to the Palace, then back to Hyde Park for a repeat lap. I'd obviously spent
 too much time looking at the sights as I'd dropped from 5th after the swim
 to 8th after the bike (I discovered afterwards). 
 A speedy Transition 2 saw me recover three of those places, as by the time I
 staggered out onto the run, my dear coach was telling me '20 secs to fourth
 place'. What he didn't tell me was the gap to first was 95secs - just as
 well as I'd probably have despaired of catching the leader. The 10km run was
 three laps around the Serpentine, and the course by that time was full of
 age-groupers of all sizes and shapes. This turned out to be a good thing, as
 I had no idea whom I was racing, but there was always someone to chase,
 driven on by a great crowd  - including a few friends who were kind enough
 to yell - but 'Go GB' seemed to be on  (nearly) everyone else's lips - just
 a great sensation. 
 Due to the chip everyone wears, I was hoping to get a provisional placing
 once over the line, either from the (annoyingly loud) announcer who'd been
 calling others home while we were still on laps 2 and 3, or from the keypad
 and screen present at most UK tri races - where you key your number and see
 a provisional place. Nothing. Silence. Had I been disqualified? Penalised?
 Done enough laps on the run? It took about an hour to get an official
 result, as I wasn't going to believe various 'expert' views, or the absence
 of the other Brit who I thought had beaten me easily and then gone for
 breakfast - he had dropped out, I learned much later.
 Then I could relax, enjoy the day and the victory, and rest up for the last
 big event of the day - driving back from Knightbridge on a Sunday

 "I ran in small local half marathon in my home town, 205 finishers. I set a
 new M80 WR, 1:38:11. I also met John Atkinson who came out from Toronto and
 won the M40 category in 1:21:41."
 This run shaved just a few seconds off 82 year-old Ed's own M80 world
