WHAT'S HAPPENED *************** NATIONAL CROSS-COUNTRY CHAMPOINSHIPS Saturday 21st February at Parliament Hill. Women's team manager Phil Aiken reports: "Parliament Hill. On returning to Chesterfield a number of years ago, to take part in a race organised by my old club, I was speaking to a former clubmate, lamenting the absence of hills. 'I'll tell you where there are some hills', he countered, 'Parliament Hill.' Aye, it's tough is Parliament Hill. Derbyshire tough. On Saturday it was also a riot of colour and bodies, even colourful bodies once the facepaint was applied. Tents and flags adorned the hillside. This was part festival, part medieval tournament. As the London Overground train pulled into Gospel Oak station, whetting the appetites of those inside the carriages with its views of the start and finish, the gun sounded and a record-breaking Under 17 Women's field sprinted across the football pitches to tackle that iconic first hill. By the time they'd run all the way to Kenwood and back, the field had stretched out somewhat, Over the line first was Harriet Knowles-Jones, followed by exotic sounding names - Morven, Yoyo, Niamh - then Sabrina Sinha. If names sounded familiar, this was repeated in the Junior (U20) Women's race. Rebecca Murray led home Phoebe Law from Kingston. In fourth was Grace Baker, sixth Amy Griffiths. In early January, Edinburgh hosted an international cross country race between Great Britain, Europe and the United States. Selected for the British Senior Women's team that day was Rebecca Murray. The other five made the British Junior Women's team. Lest anyone was in any doubt, these are the National Cross Country Championships, when the big guns from all over England come out to play. Surrey is not without some big guns of its own. Last year, Lily Partridge triumphed in the Surrey Championships ahead of Gill Sanders and Emily Wicks. This year, it was the turn of Georgie Bruinvels to take the spoils ahead of the same pair. A week later, the two Surrey champions were racing together in Edinburgh alongside Rebecca Murray in the aforementioned international. I met Jake, my South London counterpart, at the spot where I'd chosen to support the race, possibly the only spot with decent conditions underfoot. Possibly having read Andy Vernon's Twitter account, he informed me that the race was going to be Lily Partridge winning on her own against inferior opposition. So who should be the first to appear, leading the pack? I haven't got a clue. She was wearing a burgundy shirt with yellow side panels if that's any help. It's a feature of the nationals that you come across teams you've never heard of and kits you've never seen. It's also where you realise that, though Ranelagh's royal blue shirt is distinctive within the county of Surrey, there really are a lot of clubs out there who also have blue shirts. And the gold/amber/yellow logo is no help when it's obscured by large numbers. I'm sure the Hastings runner appreciated my encouragement. All eight Ranelagh runners were safely through just in time for me to catch the leaders as they returned . Normal service had resumed with three Aldershot, Farnham & District runners in the top four, which is how it would end. The mysterious burgundy lady, having had her moment in the spotlight, was sliding back through the field. Also sliding back was our leading runner, Megan, eventually finishing just outside the top 100, but that was an improvement on last year's 145th and good enough to retain the Aotearoa Trophy as first Ranelagh finisher. Also going backwards, by virtue of maintaining her 100% record of falling over at Parliament Hill (0% elsewhere) was Captain Becky, but she finished comfortably in the top 200 - considerably improving last year's 327th place. Considerably improving is an apt way to describe Julia's performances over the winter and she was third home, up 80 or so places on last year. Closing out the scoring team was Marie thirteen places further back and feeling the effects of the Bramley 20 just six days before. Another thirteen places behind Marie, providing good backup, came Bonnie, another who has made significant progress with regular racing. A points tally of 741 placed Ranelagh in 23rd place overall, but, amongst our fellow Surrey clubs, we were bettered only by Herne Hill, Belgrave and Guildford & Godalming. Ranelagh weren't yet done, however. In 433rd, Victoria was another to better her position from Nottingham. It may have been only couple of places but that was good enough for Lily Partridge. A hundred or so places later came our seventh scorer, Lara. But we still had one more. When she finished Kirsty apologised for taking so long but, it can be argued, hers was the most important, for it meant we had eight home. In all the records I've been able to track down online (they go back to 1998), we have never had more than the seven who finished in the previous three times the Nationals were held on Parliament Hill (2006, 2009 and 2012). History makers all. The massive growth in women's cross country running is perfectly illustrated by the size of the field in each of these years. In 2006 (when Ranelagh actually finished 7th!) there were but 444 finishers. Three years later this had grown by 100. Another three years and another 100 more finishers, a record 650. Bettered in Nottingham last year, it was smashed this, with 865, almost as many again as ran in 2006. In the Under 13 Girls' race, expectations were high for Izzy Atkins. Having placed 2nd in the Middlesex Championships at Alexandra Palace in January, she then came 4th and 5th in the two Surrey League races which followed. In another record field of over 400 (five of the ten races on the day recorded record numbers) she didn't disappoint, coming home in 13th place and trailing only one other Surrey League rival. We have to go back further than the online records, to 1994, to find a better performance by a Ranelagh Junior. Well done Izzy and good luck at the Inter Counties in Birmingham in early March. After all of Ranelagh's men had finished, some of the 2000 strong field still were struggling round, it was time to retire to the Garden Gate and reflect on what had just transpired. And to look forward to the South of England Championships in 11 months' time when we do this all over again. It can't be any worse. Can it?" Phil Killingley writes: "The mud-fest that is the National took place on Saturday. The men's team was a superb 35th out of 145 teams in the 6-to-score competition, and 23rd out of 50 teams in the 9-to-score. Fascinatingly, in the men's competition 9-to-score, 9 of the top 24 teams were from the Surrey League! Looking more closely, newly promoted Clapham Chasers were 24th, a place behind us, and Guildford (the other promotees) 21st. Next year is going to be very interesting in the league!" Trevor Maguire takes up the story: "It was the muddiest course I have ever run but was not ridiculous. Whilst it was muddy and gloopy at shin height nearly all the way the mud was never up to our knees at any point and so we could run. Even the run down the hill to the finish was very muddy and so we were sprinting in slow motion! The other feature this year was how busy the course was. It took nearly the first lap to get a clearish run but with experienced runners in tricky conditions there were surprisingly few issues - the old faller here and there and Al's shoe came off (I know the feeling well). In terms of the men's race Ralph Street's bug clearly was still in his system from a few days earlier and he struggled round the second lap having lost all energy. Al Morgan ran well and would have had a good finish apart from the inadvertent break whilst Mark Herbert and Rob Curtis struggled at the end of a long season. Dave Lawley kept a strong pace all the way. The rest of us had a ding dong battle on the second lap. Ted Mockett and Ian Kenton set off hard with Peter Haarer, Carl Selya-Hammer, George Howard and myself swapping places. In the end we all finished in sight of each other. Eventually Carl finished ahead, with Ted out-sprinting George, then me with Ian and Peter slightly fading due to lack of training. We enjoyed Marie's champagne after that and retired to a nearby pub!" Guildford and Godalming's Richard Ollington ran the senior men's race wearing a headcam, finishing 279th.
