 MOB MATCHES
 Trevor Maguire writes:
 * Two Home Mob Matches Coming Up-– both of the upcoming Mob Matches are at
 home in Richmond Park against Thames Hare and Hounds (29th November) and South
 London Harriers (13th December)
 * Historic Cross Country Racing - This is originally how most cross
 country races were run!  If you have run a handicap or two and/or have run
 10 miles or half marathon road races then it is time to step up to run our
 Mob Matches
 * Big is good - It's the only type of race where we all run together
 as a club (just one club verses another) and we count a moral victory if we
 can vastly outnumber the opposition - this is a tangible benchmark of our
 success as a club AND it is important to run as a club so that everyone can
 wear their Ranelagh blue vest with pride (or failing that a blue vest of
 some kind so that we can tell the two Mobs apart). 
 * Club Chant - It is a good chance to join the club chant, which must
 be close to a hundred years old itself!!
 * Convenient - Not far to travel to Richmond Park, you just need
 register on the day between 13:30 and 14:00 by picking up a number from the
 club house before the walk up the hill to our usual start by Sidmouth Wood,
 opposite Pembroke Lodge in the park. If you're late, go straight to the
 start.
 * Everyone counts - well, very nearly all?  The scoring system is that
 the club who brings the least runners minus 3 is the official number of
 runners who count in each team i.e. if Ranelagh have 100 runners and Thames
 have 50 runners, then the number of scoring runners is 50-3=47, so the
 scoring position of the first 47 runners in each club is added up and the
 club with the lower points score wins.  
 so using the formula (smallest out of the two Mob teams minus 3)
 means that the designated number of scoring runners are the only people who
 score  BUT ........
 every Ranelagh runner who is ahead of one Thames scoring runner will
 mean that the Thames runner will score more points (low points is good in a
 mob match) e.g. out of the 150 runners in the example, all of the Ranelagh
 runners will have helped if they finish ahead of any of the (47 in the
 example) scoring runners from Thames.  So it matters if a Thames scoring
 runner finishes 80th, 100th or 140th as this is the number of points that
 runner will contribute to the final total. 
 * A known Course (Thomas Cup course x 2) - Running on our home course
 means that it should be easy enough to follow and for most of us we can
 follow other runners to learn the route on the first lap (unless you are in
 the lead!)
 * No specialist shoes needed - Our home course can get a bit splashy
 but it never gets very muddy so runners can use normal road shoes and run
 around the worst bits i.e. it doesn't ruin the enjoyment if you don't have
 trail shoes or spikes, which not everybody wants to purchase
 * Only one hill per lap - It is not that tough a course (all of the
 away Mob Matches are much hillier and far muddier)
 * Tea & cakes - in the clubhouse as normal after a home race, which
 are good social occasions to swap tales of the race"

 The Thames match incorporates our club veterans championships. Afterwards we
 host our visitors to a fish and chip supper in the clubhouse, price £10.
 Book for the supper with Andy Hayward andrewhayward@catalinare.com.
 The South London match incorporates our club championship for the Wynne Cup.

 LAST CALL FOR ANY OARSMEN AND WOMEN - FRANCKEISS CUP ROWING RACE
 Last year Paul Gregory successfully re-launched the Franckeiss Cup rowing
 race for running clubs. The splendid trophy is our property, but sadly we
 were unable to raise a crew to contest it. The spoils went instead to
 Hercules Wimbledon, who defeated Thames Hare and Hounds in the final. This
 year's race is to take place on Sunday December 7th from the Skiff Club at
 Teddington. The boats used will be double skiffs, i.e. stable craft with two
 rowers and a cox. Training and coaching at the Skiff Club will be available
 on preceding Sundays. Do we have any rowers in our midst, or anyone who
 fancies having a go? Contact Sandra Prosser sandraprosser@blueyonder.co.uk . 
Would Vicky Edmonds, who contacted  Sandra re taking part, please get in touch again.

 ENGLAND ATHLETICS COACHE' ’ WORKSHOP
 A free workshop on Olympic Lifting will take place on Saturday 29th November
 from 10am to 2pm at the David Weir Leisure Centre, Carshalton SM5 1HP. The
 workshop will explore different methods of strength and power development
 with a focus on Olympic lifting and other strength related movement
 patterns. Planning along with the strength-power continuum will also be
 covered. Coaches are welcome to bring their strength programme to discuss
 with Rob Thickpenny the after the session. To book your free place on this
 workshop, email Julia Bailey at jbailey@englandathletics.org .

 TOILET CHARGES IN THE PARK
 The Royal Parks have announced that from February/March next year they will
 be charging 20p to use the toilets in the Royal Parks. Toilets in park cafes
 and in children's playgrounds and accessible toilets will be exempt. It
 apparently costs 1.5m a year - 10% of the grant The Royal Parks gets from
 the government - to operate the 27 toilet blocks in the Royal Parks (this
 excludes any refurbishment). The charges will still cover less than a half
 of the cost of maintaining them. While charging is regrettable the main
 alternative is closure, particularly for those toilets that are little used,
 such as some of those in Richmond Park.

 PUBLIC MEETING ON CYCLING IN THE PARK
 Local MP Zac Goldsmith has arranged a public meeting to discussing "Cycling
 - and in particular the rising tensions between cyclists, motorists and
 pedestrians in Richmond Park" (his words) for Wednesday 17th December at
 7.30pm at the Duke St Church in Quadrant Rd, Richmond (off the Green). He
 says that - It will be an open forum, and the purpose is simply to explore
 solutions to a problem that is raised with me by constituents on a near
 daily basis". There will be representatives from Richmond and Kingston
 Councils, the Royal Parks, and the police. ?

 WHAT'S HAPPENED
 ***************
 2XU SURREY LEAGUE DIVISION 1  Saturday 8th November at Lloyd Park, Croydon
 Well, after the euphoria of a good performance in the first League race and
 a historic mob match win at Orion, there had to be a coming down to earth,
 and this was perhaps it. We had perforce only five of the ten scorers from
 the first race and this inevitably had a substantial impact on our team
 result. Fortunately one man we did have was Jon Pepper, clear winner of the
 previous race. He wasn't able to repeat that, but third will do nicely,
 thank you! Phil Killingley ran well for 31st and then in 60th place Eirin
 McDaid led in the rest of the team in an exceptionally high quality field.
 One observer commented: "The individual standard was incredible with a sub-4
 miler coming 10th, and many runners commenting: "I ran well, but my position
 was rubbish" That's because there was nowhere to hide in what was surely
 the finest field of the millennium. Call it the'Kent effect' who were
 awesome, and have all but sewn up a hat-trick of league wins "
  
 Phil K writes:
 " Very well done to those who ran today. Not our strongest team, but some
 superb personal best performances from runners involved, and strong team
 packing, a feature we also demonstrated at the Orion mob.  We were 7th of 9
 teams, increased our distance from the relegation zone, but dropped ground
 on Belgrave who had a good match, and were overtaken by Herne Hill, (who
 continue to be under strength compared with previous seasons). 

 Star of the show for Ranelagh was again Jon Pepper, who claimed a podium 3rd
 by again besting John Gilbert of Kent by a place. Unusually and satisfyingly
 (given the hard work put in at Tuesday night training), the rest of the team
 was made up of Richmond locals: 
 - I had a good race to get 30th but may need to put some more miles in over
 Christmas to improve on this for the 3rd fixture.  
 - Eirin McDaid secured 57th (scoring place, not race place). Lack of fitness
 meant this isn't up to his usual standard. He left his Ranelagh vest on a
 park bench in protest (fret not: since recovered by his captain)
 - George Howard did his best x-c run in Ranelagh colours with 61st and a
 78.7% age graded percentage. 
 - Trevor Maguire was slightly off colour after an illness but still got
 83.3% for 65th, followed closely by
 - Ted Mockett in 69th, who has seen a dramatic improvement in cross-country
 performance in the last two league matches, with 76.1% and 75.8%  almost 5%
 above where he was 12 months ago!
 - 71st for Mark Herbert with a characteristically grass-scorching sprint
 finish into the wind and up the hill (fortunately for the grass and other
 runners, it had been raining, preventing an almost certain fire from
 breaking out).
 - 73rd for James Whistler, a few seconds later, with a best-ever performance
 on the country for Ranelagh
 - 77th for Nick Twomey, self-diagnosed as 'in search of form' but finishing
 with an arm-pumpingly flamboyant sprint.
 - 80th for Alex Harrison, picking up the anchorman trophy
 (all places are scoring places, not race places, so exclude non-scoring
 athletes)

 Pick of the rest: 
 - Dave Lawley was 11th home, scoring remarkably consistently over the last 3
 matches with 70.7%, 70.9% and (here) 70.8%.  Peter Fordham achieved similar
 consistency with 63.1%, 63.0% and 63.1% over the same fixtures.  The
 metronomes!
 - Richard Holme was an excellent 12th and is fast improving. (But hasn't yet
 accumulated enough x-c races for an age-graded % rating in Ken's
 statistics "

 Trevor Maguire adds:
 " Whilst this was not as good a result as the first race of the season, we
 certainly won the best team result in the wider sense of the word.  First of
 all we had Alan's booming voice spurring us on, the knowledge that Ken was
 monitoring our individual performance down to last decimal point, sterling
 support from Alistair and Euan Sinclair and our ladies team manager, Phil
 Aiken, made the journey to support the men's team as the ladies had a week
 off - all very welcome indeed.  Furthermore, whilst every other team sneaked
 off to get changed leaving a deserted finishing area with only runners
 gasping for breath as they crossed the line, the Ranelagh contingent stayed
 to cheer on the rest of our team - it was a great sight to see and speaks
 volumes for the racing spirit we currently have; or should I say nearly
 all ..... I do have to confess that we didn't wait for our most senior
 competitor, Peter Fordham, to finish.  Having said that, Peter has admitted
 he is in a different race from the rest of the team.  As he describes it,
 " You guys think you are under pressure at the start but have a thought for
 me. In the first few hundred metres there is a gaggle of us at the back
 eyeing each other up to see who might finish last.  The tension is only
 relieved when someone drops off the pace" I'm pleased to report that Peter
 had a few places and plenty of time in hand on his personal battle - another
 Ranelagh success "

 LONDON CHAMPIONSHIPS  Saturday 15th November 
 Phil Aiken reports:
 " Taking advantage of a free Saturday in the fixture list, four intrepid
 Ranelagh ladies ventured over to Hampstead Heath to take part in the London
 Cross Country Championships. Starting level with the athletics track and
 with a few different wiggles at the furthest point, the course is
 essentially that which will be used for the English National Championships
 in February. This race would prove good practice.  

 Sadly the problems with runners going off course in Surrey League races
 reared its head again here. While waiting for the leaders to come round for
 the second lap, on the far side of the field runners were speeding straight
 on down the hill, before turning left to the finish. Were these finishers
 from the preceding U17 Boy'’ race? Alas, no. The distinctive orange and
 black vest signalled the arrival of last year's winner, Milton Keynes' Lara
 Bromilow, followed by Kingston & Poly's Phoebe Law and the rest of the
 field.

 Having run just the one lap, what was going to happen? The answer was to
 send the runners through the finish area and back to the start and continue
 from there. Those at the front were the ones who suffered most. Bromilow
 had, in fact, stopped on crossing the finish line and, by the time she
 realised there was another lap to run, had slipped down to eighth. Working
 hard up the hill, she rejoined the leading trio of Law, fellow 17 year old
 Hannah Viner of Highgate and Rebekah Gardiner of Shaftesbury Barnet.

 For the spectators the misdirection afforded the spectacle of watching the
 runners toil up the steepest section of the hill a second time. And everyone
 toiled.

 On the descent to the finishing straight, the marshals could be discussing
 where they went wrong the lap before. First to appear and correctly heading
 towards the finish was Phoebe Law with no-one in sight. Earlier this year,
 Law had finished 4th in the U127 races at both the National and
 Inter-Counties Championships and she announced her arrival at Senior level
 with an impressive second in the opening Surrey League fixture last month.

 Half a minute later came the other three, Gardiner ahead of Viner, with
 Bromilow at the rear. Had the effort in regaining contact with the leaders
 taken its toll on the Milton Keynes runner? Apparently not as, first, she
 caught Viner and then both passed a tiring Gardiner, who settled for fourth.
 Round the final bend it was like two boxers slugging it out as acceleration
 matched acceleration but, in the end, Bromilow had too much.

 It wasn't too long before Megan appeared, adding 16th place here to an
 impressive list of performances. Marie (41st), Captain Becky 'fresh' from
 the earlier Hampstead Heath parkrun, 55th) and Kate Brook (118th) closed out
 the scoring, Ranelagh finishing 10th  of 21.

 Sacha Kennedy (U13G), and Kabir Sait and Johnny Brook (U11B) represented
 Richmond in the preceding London Youth Games. Sacha was second finisher in
 the second-placed Richmond team.

 ALGARVE RUNNING CHALLENGE  Wednesday 5th – Sunday 9th November
 Alan Davidson reports:
 " I went to Monte Gordo / Vila Real with the usual Vets AC and Dulwich
 Runners group and the excellent organisation by Steve Smythe of Athletics
 Weekly. The pine forest 5k was a dire run for me due to the hills, dust and
 sinusitis. I started early on handicap but trailed in an uncomfortable last
 in 27.43! There were good conditions for the track mile, sun and only a bit
 breezy. I had hoped for 6.50 but had to settle for 6.58 whereas Ros Tabor of
 Dulwich Runners sped round in a W65  record breaking 6.12. The 10k trail
 race was better for me than the 5k as earlier rain had killed the dust and a
 lot of the course was flat so my decent handicap and a good run for me saw
 me home first in 51.02. It was all very different for the Milhas Guadiana
 18k road race with the course from Ayamonte (Spain) including a long uphill
 slog out of the country (when run in the opposite direction from Portugal it
 follows the river avoiding the hilly section). I struggled round and it was
 a blessed relief to finally hit the last 4k into Vila Real (Portugal) on a
 flat run in with a tailwind too. It was a weary slog in 1.39. I'm off to
 Cyprus soon for 10 days but regrettably the trip now only has one race
 instead of the previous 4 or 5 so I will feel horribly like a tourist
 although warm sunshine will be welcome "
