 "Cam Levins - huh! In the 1970s he used to run for LSE (where I worked) in
 the Southern League Div 4 and we often had only four or five runners, but we
 managed to put out two in pretty well all events, so I often did the 200,
 400, 800, 1500 and 3000 steeplechase, plus a bit of shot put and long jump.
 On one occasion I ran the 1500 and had to carry on jogging through the
 finish round the track calling out to the officials to hold the start of the
 steeplechase (at the 200m mark) as I came round. Unfortunately unlike
 Levins, I won neither event."

 2XU SURREY CROSS-COUNTRY LEAGUE  Saturday 7th February at Coulsdon (women)
 and Richmond Park (men)
 The women were in action first at Coulsdon. We had thirteen runners, led in
 a great sixth place by Estelle Damant. Megan de Silva was determined to give
 Estelle a run for her money and was quietly sneaking up on her at the end of
 the first lap. Megan paid for her efforts a little on the second circuit but
 still registered her best-ever League finish in 9th place. Becky Hall also
 ran well for 26th and the scoring team was completed by Julia Bailey and
 Bonnie Morgan.

 Phil Aiken writes:
 "The results show we were tied for 4th on points, but placed 5th using the
 tie-breaker (position of final scorer). That position and our points tally
 of 130 were the best results of the season. We didn't move up any places
 among the A teams, remaining 9th, but did move ahead of Belgrave's B team.
 Our B team finished as 5th best B team over the season, testament to the
 numbers who run each race. We again had an excellent turnout for an 'away'
 fixture. For obvious reasons we have more runners when we're in Richmond
 Park or on Wimbledon Common, but the thirteen on Saturday is at the higher
 end when we have to travel further afield.

 Although every one of the team contributes to the team effort, I feel I
 should commend the efforts of some who went to a great effort to race:
 Estelle, who defied the wishes of her coach and made a 200-mile round trip
 from Loughborough; Bonnie, who, in the absence of childcare, brought her two
 children along so she could run; and Ashleigh, who made her Surrey League
 and women's team debut having already run 12 miles! Top effort, ladies. I
 should also mention Rob Curtis, who was press-ganged into childminding,
 allowing Bonnie to run.

 A schools race on Friday deprived us of half our junior racers but we were
 still represented with great runs from Izzy and Frida in the Under 13s. It
 was great that so many of you stayed behind to cheer them on. Again, many
 thanks to all runners and spectators for making it a real team effort.
 Without any of you it would just be me, a flag and a groundsheet."

 While Belgrave took the title again, it was Wimbledon Windmilers, Epsom &
 Ewell and 26.2 RRC who took the drop to Division 2. Coming up in their stead
 are Ful-On Tri, Dorking & MV and Woking.

 Phil Killingley reports on the men's race:
 "Thanks so much to those who put on a great race, in particular Andy
 Bickerstaff, Alan Hedger and Ken Powley, and all the other marshals, helpers
 and supporters.  Even if there was an air of anti-climax, with the title and
 relegation spots as good as decided, there was lots of hard work behind the
 scenes to put this on, and then braving the Siberian winds whilst the rest
 of us kept warm by running in 2.8 mile circles. It was a superb effort from
 Ken to get the results up on our website so fast, by 9pm on Saturday

 We couldn't quite hold off Belgrave, but it's all a bit academic, as
 Division 1 running is secure for another season.  At the front, Eirin McDaid
 was disappointed with 30th place, but he was quicker than any of the rest of
 us.  Jackson was not far behind in a solid 37th.  Then, and this is what
 clinched it for Belgrave to leapfrog us into 6th, a gap until Trevor Maguire
 in 65th, in probably his highest ever Ranelagh Surrey League placing.  

 At this point, the blue and amber vests started pouring in - Ted Mockett
 running very well for 69th, and a pb 76.6% age graded (beating even his
 superb effort at Brighton two weeks ago), 3 seconds ahead of Peter Haarer in
 70th, who was suffering from a dodgy hamstring and some late night lecture
 crises. Captain Metatarsal was 10 seconds behind, pleased to complete and
 finish 75th. Then it was Jordan Mungovan in 79th, Steve Whitehead in 82nd,
 Kris Davidson in 84th and Ian Kenton in 91st to finish off the scoring 10.
 James Whistler narrowly missed out on the anchorman trophy as our 11th
 scorer.  At the back of the field, Peter Fordham thought he'd finished last,
 but it turned out that a Thames runner was 22 minutes behind.  You have to
 feel sorry for the officials waiting in the cold for that man to finish (if
 they did wait, that is) (Ed's note: no, they didn't!). Ted aside, it wasn't
 a great day for the age gradeds, but James Whistler and Dave Lawley recorded
 home pbs. 

 Well done to all those participating in all of the Surrey League races -
 it's been a great season.  The climax for me was watching our excellent
 display at Streatham Common a month ago, not just the scorers, but some
 superb runs there from all who raced."  

 Euan Sinclair was again our only runner in the Under 13s - well done Euan.

 Kent retained their hold on the League winner's trophy. Last year's promoted
 clubs Reigate Priory and Croydon both returned straight back to Division 2,
 to be replaced by Clapham Chasers and Guildford and Godalming.

 QUIZ NIGHT  Saturday7th February
 A good crowd of 40 or so squeezed into the clubhouse for our latest quiz
 night. Many thanks go to quizmasters Andy Woodhouse and Ted Mockett and food
 and drink organisers Mike White, Michele Gibson and Andy Hayward. For the
 record, the winning team was "Three men and a baby" aka Phil Aiken, Ted
 McCabe, Rob Curtis and Becky Hall. 

 February at Hayes, Kent  7.5 miles
 Phil Killingley writes:
 "The Blackheath mob match starts with a seemingly innocuous trot round a
 small field, before a stile is vaulted, and runners embark on a huge lap of
 the surrounding countryside.  At this stile, it was quite frankly looking
 grim at the front for Ranelagh - Blackheath filling most of the top 15
 positions, albeit with Jon Pepper haring off in front of them as if it was a
 400m race (he didn't slow down and won by 3 minutes!).  But what unfolded in
 the next 7 miles, with grit, mud, hills, exhaustion, frisky horses and a
 near castration (these last two totally unrelated) formed the prelude to a
 stunning away win, better even than Operation Betelgeuse vs Orion last
 autumn, to give Ranelagh a first ever full house or Grand Slam of mob

 Ben Shore's photo on Facebook of Becky and myself, Ranelagh captains holding
 the cup, had 67 'likes' only hours after posting. Other clubs are
 congratulating us on our performance: Orion's captain said 'Brilliant effort
 from everybody at Ranelagh - at least we feel a bit better now knowing you
 have a very strong team and have beaten all the others.  We will definitely
 be 'plotting' something for next year though'.  And Blackheath's headline on
 their website runs: 'Ranelagh mob match - we lost. Congratulations to
 Ranelagh on winning all their mob matches this season.'  David Wright, our
 most experienced mob matcher with 160 under his belt after today, proclaimed
 this his best mob match out of all of them. 
 Talking of history, Ranelagh was formed in 1881 and our first inter-club
 race with Blackheath was in 1886. The first 'all to score' mob race was a
 few decades later in 1907 - a 17 to score affair.  The heavy and beautiful
 trophy we lifted today (before it was spirited away for safe keeping) was
 gifted by E H Pelling of Ranelagh and E J Ratcliff of Blackheath in 1921,
 hence its name Pelling-Ratcliff. Today was just the 25th time Ranelagh have
 won the mob, against 70 for Blackheath.  Two years ago, we won the away race
 for the first time since the early 1970s under Marc Snaith's leadership, so
 in theory we were due a fightback from the Heathens.  They turned out 23
 people more than last time, but we more than doubled the size of our mob, to
 give us a 65-61 people advantage.   

 It seems wrong to talk about individual performances in what is clearly all
 about the team, but mention must also go to Becky Hall's excellent win of
 the ladies' race, only a day after a 20 mile marathon training run.  Carl
 Assmundson ran for one of the first times in Ranelagh colours and shot past
 his captain at an astonishing pace with 3 miles to go, going on to overhaul
 Blackheath's first two runners in a sprint finish.  I think he ran in
 Astroturf shoes. 

 Vice Captain Trevor Maguire's Blue Wall concept came into its own again
 today.  Our biggest wall was positions 23-30 - 8 in a row (excluding
 guests), led home by Mark Herbert.  Christopher Camacho led a wall of 7,
 covering 69-75.  We had 7 in the first 10, 4 in the next 10, and then 9 of
 the third ten. Blackheath never recovered, and the final score was 2993 -
 3564 in our favour, leaving the opposition to nurse their pride, and the
 state of their relations with local horse riders. 

 A link to a wide array of photos, well worth a browse, are below.  Happy
 viewing. (Those of you smiling at the camera at the top of one of the huge
 hills - shame on you!). photos:

 Many thanks and congratulations to all those contributing to our mob
 successes this season, both on the field and off.  Welcome to mob running to
 those running mobs this season for the first time. It just gets better and
 better.  Where next?!" 

 For the record, Jon Pepper won the F B Thompson medal for the overall
 winner, but the Harry Sheer Trophy for the first finisher aged over 50
 remained in Blackheath's hands as Nick Kinsey crossed the line about a
 minute ahead of Darryl McDonald

 COUNTRY TO CAPITAL 45 miles  Saturday 17th January
 Bruce McLaren reports:
 "The Country to Capital 45 is a great ultra, starting in Wendover, crossing
 the Chilterns to Uxbridge and then following the Grand Union Canal to
 Paddington basin. It started off a bit overcast and within a mile we were
 running in a blizzard across frozen mud - just as well as I had the wrong
 footwear on. I hadn't realised it would be muddy so just had trainers on!
 After a couple of hours snow it stopped but remained very cold. The
 Chilterns were behind me and around mile 20 we joined the canal with just
 under a marathon to go. That passed fairly smoothly and it seemed no time
 before I was arriving at Little Venice, I'd never been there before - it's
 lovely!  I'd recommend this one, so much so I've entered for 2016 already."
