 NATIONAL CROSS-COUNTRY CHAMPOINSHIPS  Saturday 21st February at Parliament
 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. If you have 50 minutes to spare, here's
