 SURREY VETERANS CHAMPIONSHIPS  Saturday 12th October in Richmond Park
 We have been hosting these championships on behalf of the county for so long
 that when we started some of today's venerable competitors must have been
 running boys' championships as mere slips of lads. Still, it seems to be a
 popular venue and because at the end of the proceedings so many people have
 medals of some kind to collect, it guarantees that a hungry horde will
 descend on the clubhouse to partake of Carol's sumptuous teas while the
 results are being computed.  

 The combined men over 60 and women's 6km race came first and here we had
 some interest at the front. Our new world M60 Triathlon champion Chris Owens
 couldn't stay with the leading woman Becky McNicholas of Epsom Oddballs but
 he led the rest of the field home to take the M60 title. He was made to work
 for it though, as Thames's Turner and Farmery were hot on his heels. Wiebke
 Kortum was our leading woman, taking 5th place in the W45 category, but our
 other individual medal came from Sonia Rowland who was 3rd W55. That seemed
 to be it as far as medals were concerned as our W45 team was sixth (though
 only five points from third) and our M60 team was initially placed fourth.
 But following a bit of work with the abacus and much head scratching Chris,
 Phil Jackson and Mike Peace were declared bronze medallists.   

 The men over 40 / over 50 race over 10km came next. While Stuart Major of
 SLH strode away to retain his M40 title easily, our best bets for a medal
 seemed to be Trevor Maguire and Paul Doyle. Trevor proved the speedier today
 and took second place in the M45 category, just six seconds behind the gold
 medallist. Paul was less than half a minute down on Trevor but another M45
 intervened and Paul had to settle for fourth. These two plus Vaughan Ramsay
 made up our M40 team which closed in just outside the medals in fourth
 place. Our leading over 50 was Paul Rider, 9th M50, and he together with
 Dave Powell and Stephen Logue comprised the M50 team which also took fourth

 Wimbledon Common
 It may seem topsy-turvy but let's get the bottom line out of the way first.
 We finished eighth in the opening Division 1 fixture out of nine competing
 clubs so we are currently occupying one of the two relegation spots. Newly
 promoted Walton found it tough going and are already tailed off, but their
 fellow climbers Clapham Chasers put out an impressive team to finish 6th
 just over a hundred points ahead of us. Our nearest rivals turned out to be
 South London Harriers, who finished only 6 points ahead. It seems likely
 that they and Clapham will be our main targets for the season. It must be
 many years since SLH competed in Division 2 so I am sure they will make
 every effort to avoid the drop.  

 Skipper Phil Killingley writes:
 "A sterling effort from the Ranelagh men. Congratulations to Jackson Creegan
 who led us home in 16th and to Rick Jenner who ran excellently to make our
 10th scoring place, winning the anchor man trophy. Thanks to everyone else
 who turned out to run and support. With some unfit and others missing
 through injury/illness, we didn't have our strongest team out by a long way.
 We placed 8th out of 9 teams, but opened a comfortable 161 point gap on
 Walton at the bottom and we are only 6 points behind South London Harriers
 in 7th.  Clapham Chasers had a good one, they are a team on the rise, and
 are 103 points ahead of us in 6th. Their top runner Andy Maud came 3rd.
 Given the quality of Ranelagh runners missing, whom we expect to appear (or
 in my case be significantly fitter!) in three weeks time, I remain confident
 that not only can we easily climb above the relegation zone, but also in
 time overhaul Clapham and maybe others. Well done again - this is a strong
 start given circumstances and we can build on it." 

 As ever it was a classy race, with Kent AC dominating the proceedings led by
 Irish Olympian Paul Pollock. 16th place for Jackson certainly represented a
 huge step up in class for him. His best League result last season was 47th.
 Alex Harrison, James Whistler and Rick Jenner all featured in the scoring
 ten for the first time. We had 19 runners in all, matching or bettering all
 the other clubs albeit well down on the 30+ of last season. But this was
 largely owing to the very popular Cabbage Patch 10 taking place the
 following day - an unfortunate clash which was outside of our control. The
 next men's League race is hosted by Clapham Chasers on Mitcham Common on
 Saturday 9th November.

 SURREY LADIES LEAGUE DIVISION 2  Saturday 19th October at Lightwater Country
 After last season's struggles we find ourselves competing in Division 2 of
 the Surrey Ladies League this winter. Not that it makes much practical
 difference - both divisions still run together resulting in fields in excess
 of 300 runners of all speeds from Olympian downwards. Nevertheless we would
 of course like to return to the top rank as quickly as possible and Saturday
 represented a big step in the right direction. For starters, we had fourteen
 runners in the senior race, which was most encouraging. There was an
 intriguing  mixture of old hands, returnees and new faces, and it was
 perhaps the new faces who made the biggest impact. Of our leading five
 runners who made up our A team, three were running their first League race. 

 But it was "old hand" Marie Synnott-Wells who led the blue vests on the
 first short lap of the stony and flattish Lightwater Country Park. Hot on
 her heels was Anna Scally in her first League race since 2009, then we saw
 newcomers Megan Evans, Gwen McCormack and Julia Bailey plus Victoria
 Elbourne whose last appearance for Ranelagh had been as a schoolgirl five or
 six years ago. Anna surprised herself by passing Marie during the two longer
 laps but both were then overhauled by Megan who ran on strongly to be our
 first finisher in 11th place in Division 2. Anna was just six seconds behind
 then came Marie, Gwen and Julia who moved through strongly in the closing
 stages to close in our A team in 20th place. 

 Guildford and Godalming packed four runners into the top ten and won the
 team race with an excellent score of just 40 points but we placed a clear
 second on 74. Overall race winner by almost a minute was 2012 Olympian Julia
 Bleasdale representing Thames H&H in Division 1 with a time of 21.04.  

 Our B team was headed by Wiebke Kortum, ahead of Becky Hall - who was taking
 it easy with an eye to the 10 miles tomorrow - Sonia Rowland, Victoria and
 Louise Piears. They placed 10th overall, ahead of several A teams and well
 clear of the nearest B. We were technically one runner short of a C team (a
 "ghost" back marker is counted) but Ali Kennedy (another League novice),
 Katherine Mercer, Rachel Revett and Hannah Doyle did enough to finish 18th
 overall and first C team. Late note: the above was based on the official
 result which however seems to be incorrect in that Katherine is believed to
 have finished ahead of both Louise and Ali.               

 After their mums had run the senior race it was great to see three girls
 representing Ranelagh in the Under 13s event. Sacha Kennedy led home her
 twin sister Leonie and Livvy Ricketts, and though one short of a full team
 they placed 10th.

 CABBAGE PATCH 10 miles  Sunday 20th October at Twickenham
 The Cabbage Patch as ever was a very popular event and Ranelagh provided 56
 of a field approaching 1,600. The Callis Cup was on offer to the first
 Ranelagh runner home.
 Trevor Maguire writes:
 "Congratulations to Nick Twomey as our new 10 mile champion who ran really
 well on the day and was pushed hard by Paul Doyle, who had a very impressive
 run. Obviously both forgot about even-pacing as they ran the first two miles
 at 5k pace - 11 mins!! - but were tough enough to hang on for another
 eight!.  Peter Faull also ran well and picked up a big PB."

 Nick finished in 58.39, almost half a minute clear of Paul who placed third
 in the M45 category (with Trevor also well up in 5th). Nick Wright was just
 behind Trevor, both a few seconds over 61 minutes. Then came Ted Mockett,
 Peter Weir, Bill Neely and Paul Rider all inside 70 minutes. Also just a few
 ticks of the clock inside the 7 minute miling barrier was Becky Hall who
 despite running a PB was disappointed not to have gone a little faster.
 Michelle Davies and Daniela Mingham joined Becky in the PB club, running
 70.43 and 71.21 respectively. Karen Weir, Wiebke Kortum, Jane Craigie-Payne
 and Sally Dell followed on inside 77 minutes. No doubt there were more PBs!

 CHICAGO MARATHON  Sunday 13th October
 Chris Read reports:
 "On Sunday 13th October I ran the Chicago Marathon.  Also there from
 Ranelagh were Ian Grange and Heather Martingell.  We were joined by former
 Ranelagh member Carola Richter and two friends of Heather (Jill Day and Sue
 Callan) to make a team of six. For me the race started well.  The weather
 was perfect.  It was sunny but not too hot and the course was flat.  The
 crowd support was good throughout, with many holding up signs.  There was
 one lady holding a sign saying: 'My boyfriend runs faster than yours.'  I
 hope the young man in question achieved the expected time and was not dumped
 at the finish line.  As the first half progressed  I started to wonder why I
 only run a marathon every two years.

 The second half was tougher as an endless stream of people poured past me.
 I started to remember why I do not run marathons very often.  However the
 crowd support continued to be outstanding.  At 25 miles a 3.40 pacer who had
 started some distance behind me came past and said to his followers: 'There
 are only 1.2 miles left.  What are you going to do with them?'  I was
 fortunately too tired to inform him of my somewhat unambitious plan to
 finish at any speed.  I was quite relieved to cross the finish line in a
 time of 3.42.51, which was roughly what I had expected.  

 I recommend the Chicago Marathon.  The course is flat and fast.  There is a
 strict system of corrals based on times runners can prove they have done in
 the recent past.  As a result I was not held up at all by slower runners in
 front of me.  There was a total of just under 40 000 finishers."

 Despite suffering from a cold 82 year-old Ed Whitlock was a little
 disappointed to record "only" 3:41.58, more than ten minutes down on last
 year's time - but still a world age 82 record. Ed writes: "I was in a sorry
 state over the last 5k. A disgrace to the Ranelagh vest as runner after
 runner passed me!" Here's the story in Runner's World:
 John Atkinson adds on Facebook:
 "All-in-all, 2:50:39 and an almost six-minute PB in today's Marathon is a
 terrific morning's work. My BLT team-mate Phil Large and I ran most of the
 race together ~ until at 30k he realized he was going to be late for a
 wedding (not his own) and found an extra gear for the latter stages. It was
 also around this point that my legs turned to cement, rendering the final
 run-for-home slightly more challenging than it might have been. Thankfully
 Mr. Hosaka and his 60-64 WR-setting (?) roadshow arrived on cue at 41k,
 stirring me from my slumber and ensuring I finished like Steve Ovett in his
 prime, retaking Mr H on the line. I threw everything I had at the sub-2:50
 goal, and came up just short. But it was a huge ball of fun trying. Ten
 years ago I was ecstatic to run 3:19:42 in Chicago, so I guess I've come a
 long way. Here's to the next ten years ~ and more proof that we're all just
 like fine wines: getting better with age."
