 ...represented South Africa in the Triathlon at the Commonwealth Games in

 competition after losing contact during the swim, but more than made up for
 that with a great performance in the mixed relay where she helped her team
 to the silver medals. Congratulations Gill!

 With one race to go our women's team is tied for first place with Clapham
 Chasers, while Guildford and Godalming are threatening just one point
 behind. In the men's League we are in third place behind Clapham and
 Stragglers. Individually, our best placed runners are Megan De Silva and
 Ellen Clague who hold second place in the senior women and women over 45
 respectively. However, in each case another Ranelagh runner - Lauren Stewart
 and Marie Synnott-Wells - could move into contention if she runs the final
 race. Paul Rider and Peter Fordham are 4th in the men over 50 and men over
 60 respectively, while Marilyn Horne is in 5th place in the women over 55
 despite having only run two races so far. In the senior men, Nick Twomey,
 Ian Kenton and Ted Mockett are all in the top eight. Full details are on the
 Surrey Athletics Website here:

 The final League event is the Perseverance Wimbledon Dash 5km on Sunday 17th
 August - see above for details.

 SURREY ROAD RELAYS  Sunday 7th September at Wimbledon Park
 Owing to the unavailability of the Wimbledon Park track on the usual
 Saturday date, the county road relay championships have been moved to Sunday
 7th September starting at 12 noon. As usual the senior men's race will be
 over 6 stages of approximately 3 miles, the senior women, W35, M40 and M50
 events will be over 4 laps and the W45 and M60 will be over 3 laps. For the
 M50s and M60s only, contact Peter Fordham  peter_fordham@yahoo.com
 if you'd like to run (we were M50 silver medallists last year). For other
 age groups and women contact the captains if you're interested - see "What's
 Coming" below for contact details.   

 ROYAL PARKS HALF MARATHON  Sunday 12th October in London
 Tamsin Burland writes:
 "If you're looking for a place for the Royal Parks Half, Shooting Star have
 some places for 20 reg fee plus any sponsorship you can raise (i.e. no
 minimum).  Please contact Karen Peffer on 01932 823118. Please note,
 registration closes on 20th August.

 Your support will help us to provide vital care to local families who have a
 baby, child or teenager with a life-limiting condition.  We need to raise
 9.5 million every year just to maintain our current level of care. With
 just 10% of our income being provided by Government funding, we rely upon
 the money raised by our supporters at events like the Royal Parks
 Half-Marathon, to enable us to continue to offer our essential care services
 to families who are living in the most unimaginable circumstances."

 GISSA JOB
 We have a vacancy for a new Trophies Steward. Alan Hedger wishes to give up
 the job after the forthcoming winter season, and the ideal thing would be to
 find a volunteer to replace him now, so that Alan could show him or her the
 ropes. It's an ideal job for someone who would like to contribute to the
 club but may not have time for a year-round commitment. The work of the
 Trophies Steward is concentrated into the few weeks leading up to our
 presentations evening in March. The duties are roughly these:
 1  Keep track of who holds each trophy
 2  A few weeks before the presentations evening in March, arrange for the
 trophies to be returned to you
 3  Have the trophies engraved with the names of the new winners
 4  Bring them all along to the presentations evening
 5  Ensure we have a good supply of club medals
  
 So you'd need somewhere to store the trophies temporarily - Alan uses his
 attic; and it would be convenient if you have an engraver near you. If
 you're interested, please have a word with Alan or reply to this e-news. 

 CONGRATULATIONS...
 ...to all those Ranelagh Harriers who completed the Prudential Ride London
 100 in appalling weather conditions on Sunday.

 WHAT'S HAPPENED
 ***************
 WEDDING DAY 7km  Friday 25th July in Bushy Park
 The Father Onn Mob Match Trophy for the club with the greatest number of
 finishers in the Wedding Day race (excluding organisers Stragglers) seems to
 have found a permanent home in the Ranelagh clubhouse. With almost 70
 finishers this year we would have taken some beating. It was great to see so
 many in the blue and gold on the starting line, including plenty of new
 faces. And so, happily we brought the trophy home again. But this time it
 had a partner. It's been a few years since we won either of the main team
 titles here but this year our leading four men Nick Twomey, Ted Mockett,
 Kris Davidson and Mark Herbert managed to steal away with the handsome red
 deer stag carving that forms the men's team prize. A little further down the
 field Howard Gleave took second place in the over 50 class. Megan De Silva
 was 7th overall in the women's race ahead of Marie Synnott-Wells and Becky
 Hall. 


 STRAGGLERS JUNIOR HANDICAP 2km  Thursday 17th July at the Hawker Centre
 Colin Brett reports:
 "Race five of the six race series, and the title is getting closer. We have
 been expecting a backlash from our hosts and close neighbours all season but
 with summer holidays just starting the turnout was the lowest of the season
 with only 24 on the start line. Importantly 13 of them were wearing the blue
 and gold of Ranelagh (plus two more in the Minis race) and it was a dominant
 run from the squad, outscoring our nearest rivals Stragglers by 46 points to
 25 leaving us in an unassailable lead of 202 points to 112 with one race to
 go. 

 Notable performances came from James Rushby, PB and first Boy, Olivia
 Ricketts, PB and first Gal, Harvey Bloomer big PB and third Boy, Sam Rushby
 PB.  Lydia Louw was the fastest Gal. However, as has been the case all
 season, this was a great team effort - better get the bubbles on ice
 (that'll be for Heather & me of course!!!!!!).  Race 6 is on the 28th of
 August, can team Ranelagh Harriers Juniors make it a clean sweep for the
 season........"

 FINALLY...
 This comes from the USATF:
 "A five-man relay team of runners in their 90s set three world records at
 the USATF Masters Outdoor Championships in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
 The team consisted of Champion Goldy Sr., 97; Orville Rogers, 96; Charles
 Ross, 91; Charles Boyle, 91; and Roy Englert, 92. 
 The quartet of Ross, Rogers, Englert, and Goldy Sr. set the 4 x 100-meter
 record of 2:22. The team of Ross, Charles, Englert, and Boyle ran 12:41 in
 the 4 x 400-meter relay and 28:17 in the 4 x 800-meter relay. 
 According to the Winston-Salem Journal  Video: , the team of
 90-plus-year-olds is the oldest to run relays, which made them automatic
 world record holders after they crossed the finish line. 
 'When I first heard it had never been done before, I said, 'Why not do it
 and get some world records?'' Ross told the Winston-Salem Journal. 
 Here is the USATF video
 of the relay team racing the 4x100
