 OPENING RUN and THOMAS CUP HANDICAP  Saturday 13th September
 The Thomas Cup 3.8 miles handicap, the Opening Run of our 134th season,
 takes place on Saturday 13th September. It has NOT been moved to Sunday as
 inadvertently shown in the last e-news! All members are welcome. We'll try
 to start the race as close to 3pm as we can, but before you go up to the
 start Ken Powley will take the annual club photograph in the Park across the
 road from the clubhouse at about 2.45pm. Handicapper Angus is preparing the
 handicap, but unfortunately he won't be there on the day. So you can help
 our hard-working officials in several ways:
 1  Arrive early
 2  Come to the clubhouse to register - please DON'T go straight to the start
 unless you really really don't have time to get to the clubhouse
 3  If you're a new member and/or haven't taken part in more than one or two
 club races, it would help if you could contact Angus by Tuesday 9th
 September and let him know that you are thinking of coming. Let him have
 some idea of what you think you can run for 5km - e.g. a parkrun time. This
 doesn't commit you to coming, it will just save time on the day if you do
 decide to come. Contact Angus angus.cater@gmail.com .   
 4  Familiarise yourself with the course. Here's an annotated map:. 
       
 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.   

 RANELAGH HARRIERS FIXTURE CARD AND GAZETTE

 now up on our website, courtesy of Ken Powley.  Fixtures:.  

 Also freshly published is a new edition of our printed Gazette, covering the

 SPECIAL TRAINING NIGHT  Tuesday 16th September 
 Karen Weir writes:
 "On Tuesday the 16th September, club training night will be extra special
 and you are all invited. lululemon athletica will be holding a pop-up shop
 so you can check out the latest run and training kit - make sure you bring
 your credit cards. They'll also be providing post-run snacks to tempt you to
 stay around for a post-run stretch session led by local yoga teacher (and
 runner) Veronika from Yogashooli. Then to finish off the evening, Michael
 Nichol from St Mary's Clinic will be giving a brief talk on how the
 facilities at the clinic can help you improve your running performance.
 Training from 7pm will be on as usual, these post-run activities will
 kick-off from 8.30pm. Hope you can make it!" 

 RANELAGH ROAD GRAND PRIX
 The final race in our 2014 club Road Grand Prix was the Perseverance
 Wimbledon Dash 5km on Sunday 17th August. There were nine races in the GP
 this year, and each individual's seven best scores counted. In the Open
 category, despite a late charge from Ted Mockett it was Nick Twomey who held
 on to take the title by seven points. These two were well ahead of the rest,
 but third place finally went to Paul Doyle just one point clear of Trevor
 Maguire. Paul and Trevor were two of the main protagonists in the Men Over
 40 class too, but this time tables were turned and it was Trevor who came
 out on top, with Stewart Anderson pushing Paul back into third place. Paul
 Rider was the clear winner of the Men Over 50 section, ahead of Colin Brett
 and Stephen Logue. 

 Megan De Silva led the way in the Women's competition, comfortably clear of
 Marie Synnott-Wells and Lauren Stewart. Marie was not to be denied in the 
 Over 40s class, however, and came out the undisputed champion ahead of Ellen
 Clague and Heather Martingell. Sally Bamford won the Over 50s by a single
 point from Carol Aikin, with Marilyn Horne in third place.  

 145 members completed at least one of the Grand Prix races, a total that I
 suspect might constitute a new record. The full scoreboard is on our website here:. 

 SURREY ROAD LEAGUE
 The Wimbledon 5km was also the last race in this year's Surrey Road League.
 It's a measure of the increasing popularity of the League that there was a
 record field of nearly 250 for this race which is not widely advertised
 outside of the 32 clubs who take part in the League. This time last year we
 were celebrating a final flourish by our women's team which brought them the
 title. Alas, there was to be no repetition this year. Guildford and
 Godalming, who have rarely been visible above the horizon in previous years,
 clearly targeted the competition this time and successfully ran away with
 the title. We finished sixth on the day and slipped back to third overall on
 countback with Clapham Chasers. Our men's team also slipped one place, and
 we wound up fourth behind Clapham Chasers, South London Harriers and
 Stragglers. 

 We didn't come away empty-handed, however, thanks in the main to Marie
 Synnott-Wells who won the League W45 title and also took the county
 championship which was incorporated into this race. There were League medals
 too for Paul Doyle, second in the M40s, Megan De Silva, third in the Senior
 Women, and Ellen Clague, third in the W45s. Recording good top ten finishes
 were Nick Twomey (Senior Men), Trevor Maguire (M40), Paul Rider and Stephen
 Logue (M50), Peter Fordham, Alan Meaden and David Meaden (M60) and Carol
 Aikin (W45). Final League tables are on the Surrey Athletics website:.

 WHAT'S HAPPENED
 ***************
 PERSEVERANCE WIMBLEDON DASH 5km  Sunday 17th August at Wimbledon Park
 This was the final race in our own Road Grand Prix and in the Surrey Road
 League. It was also the county 5km road championship. You can read about the
 outcome of  these competitions above. As for the race itself, Captain
 Killingley led our team home in just outside 17 minutes, with Ted Mockett
 not very far behind at all. Was Phil looking worried? Marc Snaith too ran
 well, and then came Paul Doyle and Nick Twomey battling their way down the
 home straight to narrowly sneak inside 18 minutes. Just a few seconds
 outside were Trevor Maguire and Rick Jenner. Megan De Silva was our leading
 woman in 11th place but behind her Marie Synnott-Wells was collecting our
 only championship medal of the day, a gold in the W45 class. Becky Hall and
 Wiebke Kortum followed, and then Sonia Rowland who finished second W55 -but
 alas no medal.

 RATCHFORD RELAY  Tuesday 19th August in Richmond Park
 Eleven teams of three women were formed up for the annual Ratchford Relay
 over six stages of about one kilometre. Each team comprised one "fast"
 runner who would cover three laps, one "medium" runner who would cover two,
 and one "slow" who would run just one lap. Karen Weir led the way on the
 first circuit, setting the only sub-4 minutes time of the day. Karen had a
 clear lead at the first changeover, but only four seconds separated the next
 four teams. Claire McKenzie was down in 8th place but she handed over to
 young Josie Kearey who shot through the field to take the lead at the end of
 the second lap. Fellow junior Frida Roper followed her through to second,
 pushing her sister Astrid - who had taken over from Karen - back to third.
 Jo Sinton-Hewitt - who had been 7th at the end of the first stage - took
 over from Frida for her second circuit and strode into a clear lead. Behind
 Jo, Ellen Clague moved into contention, and behind her Rachel Findlay moved
 up to third. On the fourth lap Deborah Blakemore held onto the lead and
 Helen Maxfield consolidated second place for Ellen's team. Third, not far
 behind, was Livvy Ricketts. After that, there was no change in the first
 three on the final two laps, though there was a tight struggle for the
 runners-up spot. Jo, Frida and Deborah came home half a minute clear but
 Ellen and Livvy set off on the final lap together. Ellen proved just the
 stronger and she, Louise Roper and Helen finished in second place, with
 Livvy, Paula Maguire and Bronwen Northmore a dozen seconds back in third.

 FINALLY...
 "I run because if I didn't, I'd be sluggish and glum and spend too much time
 on the couch. I run to breathe the fresh air. I run to explore. I run to
 escape the ordinary. I run...to savour the trip along the way. Life becomes
 a little more vibrant, a little more intense. I like that."
