The race is on a rolling country lanes course and is held in conjunction with the Chipstead Village Fair and Flower Show. Pre-entries are closed but they will accept entries on the day: Details:.. Next on Sunday 26th July comes the Elmbridge 10km, with a 9am start at the Xcel Leisure Centre by the river at Walton-on-Thames. It's a flat course, part road and part Thames towpath. Entries here:. 2015 ROAD GRAND PRIX The first six events in Ranelagh's Road Grand Prix have taken place and the leading scores to date are: (Open) Steve Whitehead 51, Ted Mockett 38, Kris Davidson 35, Phil Killingley 33; (Men Over 40) Steve Whitehead 29, Kris Davidson 25, Stewart Anderson 20, Duncan Mallison 7; (Men Over 50) Paul Rider 23, Mick Lane 16, Bill Neely 15, Richard Holme 11; (Women) Marie Synnott-Wells 21, Megan de Silva 18, Becky Hall 13, Carol Aikin 9; (Women Over 40) Ellen Clague 16, Wiebke Kortum 12, Mel Davison 11, Kirsty Bangham and Tanya Allen 7; (Women Over 50) Marie Synnott-Wells 24, Carol Aikin 13, Deborah Blakemore 11, Lynne Barber 9. Next event is the Elmore 7 miles this Saturday, see above. Full details of the Grand Prix here:. 2015 SURREY ROAD LEAGUE After four events in the Road League and with three to go, Ranelagh's men hold a handy five point lead over Clapham Chasers. Ranelagh has one first place and three seconds to Clapham's one first, two thirds and a fifth. However, only the best five out of the seven races count, so Clapham stand to make up ground if they can discard that fifth place. Hercules Wimbledon are also in contention with a first, a second, a fourth and a ninth. In the women's League Guildford and Godalming are in a commanding position with two firsts and two thirds. Clapham are next and then Ranelagh in third place with two seconds, a sixth and a ninth. In the individual tables Steve Whitehead still leads the over 40 division, but Ryan Harris of Reigate has three first places to his name and will surely displace Steve if he runs two more races. Kris Davidson is currently third in the over 40s and Paul Rider is third in the over 50s. In the women's tables Marie Synnott-Wells is currently only 4th in the over 45 class, but will be in a strong position to retain her title if she runs two more races. Megan de Silva is in a similar position in the senior women category, currently second but with a good prospect of taking the title. Full details are on the Surrey Athletics website here:. NEXT JOB FOR THE MOB - WEDDING DAY 7Km Friday 31st July Included in our Grand Prix but not in the Road League is the Wedding Day 7km, the always-popular event to be held this year on Friday 31st July starting at 7.30pm in Bushy Park. This race usually reaches its limit, so enter early. We're the current holders of the mob match trophy for the greatest number of finishers (excluding organisers Stragglers) and the men's team trophy. Already there are 80 Ranelagh names on the entry list - come and join the fun! Details and Entries:. PERSEVERANCE WIMBLEDON DASH 5km Sunday 9th August starting at 9am in Wimbledon Park The climax of both our Grand Prix and the Road League is the Perseverance Wimbledon Dash 5km. Details and Entries:. CHRIS BRASHER PONDS RUN Tuesday 21st July in Richmond Park Owing to how the calendar has worked out this year, we have been obliged to push back the Brasher Ponds Run to Tuesday 21st July. This is our annual tribute to the late Chris Brasher, Olympic Gold Medallist, founder of the London Marathon and long-time member of Ranelagh Harriers. The Ponds run - visiting all 20+ ponds in the Park - was a favourite of his. We'll set off in groups, some to tackle all the Ponds (9 miles-ish), others to settle for a sample. WHEATSHEAF and PIGEON 5km Saturday 1st August at 1pm in Staines. For something a little more low-key than most road races, Andy Hayward writes: " I would like to encourage entries into the above run. Whilst the Wheatsheaf & Pigeon (affectionately known locally as the "Wee & Pee") is a great community pub, publicity is not their strongest point, and I volunteered to try and help them get a better turn out for the run this year. It is a very low key but fun event, and the only entry fee is a (suggested £5) donation to charity (Help for Heroes) supported by the pub, and last year we even got a free drink thrown in for that! It was a shame that there were only six entries last year, and it would be great to get more out to support this worthy cause, especially in this year of continuing to remember the centenary of WW1, and the 70th anniversary of the end of WW2. It ties in with a charity 'fun day' at the pub (bouncy castle, music, BBQ etc.). Note the start is at 1pm.not 12 noon as previously stated. To celebrate my forthcoming change of circumstances from 'Insurance Professional' to 'Professional Brewer' and the impending launch of Thames Side Brewery, I am also expecting a good turnout from my other (lunchtime) running club - Raven Racers. It was even suggested by Andy Tucker (also of Blackheath Harriers) that we have a Ranelagh v Ravens mini mob match within the run, which I thought was a great idea if we get the numbers from both clubs. I will be doing a BBQ myself in the afternoon/evening, and would invite all attending Ranelites and Ravens back to ours (about 200 yards away from the pub) for an afternoon/evening summer party with eats and drinks." STRENGTH and CONDITIONING SESSIONS Head coach Karen Weir writes: "The Ranelagh coaches will be putting on monthly strength and conditioning sessions on a Tuesday evening after training. These consist of a few short but very specific exercises for runners, that can then be repeated at home. If the weather is good we'll be outside where there is a little more room, however if it's wet we'll try and cater for as many people in the clubhouse as possible. Sessions will start at 8.30pm and be led by different coaches each month. Remaining dates/coaches are as follows: Tuesday 28th July - Chris and Peter, 25th August - Karen ". THURSDAY NIGHT TRACK TRAINING AT OSTERLEY The club is continuing to subsidise track sessions on Thursday evenings at the Osterley track. All groups and all abilities are welcome. The sessions are every Thursday 7.30-8.30pm. Link to the map is here:. CONGRATULATIONS... ...to Kate and Andy Woodhouse on the arrival of Eve Elizabeth on Monday 29th June.

Best of luck Ralph! THROWING THE....??? Nobody ventured an answer or even a guess at my little question in the last e-news, so I'll give you another couple of weeks. You'll have difficulty finding the answer on the internet, but if you think about what kind of society China was during the Cultural Revolution, you might be able to make an inspired guess. Here's the question: During the Cultural Revolution in China in the 1960s, which new throwing event was added to the domestic athletics programme? FACEBOOK Follow Ranelagh on Facebook.

WHAT'S HAPPENED *************** ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING Tuesday 7th July at the clubhouse Our AGM was conducted at a brisk pace with little controversy. The Treasurer's, President's, Captains' and Secretary's reports were circulated before the meeting and were accepted unanimously. It was noted that there is some overlap in the content of these reports, and it was agreed that all but the Treasurer's should be amalgamated into a single report next year. Most of the club officers were kindly prepared to continue in their posts, the exceptions being the Trophies Steward Alan Hedger and the Kit Stewards Heather Martingell and Jane Craigie-Payne. Instead, Heather has volunteered to replace Alan with the Trophies. Michelle Davies takes over the kit. In addition, Andy Woodhouse has given us notice that he does not wish to continue after this year as Fixtures Secretary, and Simon Burrell has agreed to take over. We now have a new post of Welfare Officer and Rob Curtis has kindly agreed to take this on. David Rowntree has served us for 25 years as Hon Treasurer and as ever his accounts report was detailed and clear and showed that we are in a healthy financial position. Wally Garrod requested that we double check our rights of access to the clubhouse. Carol Barnshaw kindly provided refreshments for those who attended the meeting and we were also able to taste the output from of Andy Hayward's new Thames Side Micro-Brewery. Excellent! COAD CUP 5 miles handicap Tuesday 14th July in Richmond Park Record attendances have become quite commonplace for us recently and here was another. The clubhouse was packed well before 7pm and the poor hard working officials thought the queue to register would never end. Finally a record for a handicap race of 95 members and guests put their names down and by 7.15pm we were able to set off to the start and before long get the race under way. Unfortunately the rain that had been threatening all day chose that moment to make its presence felt with a steady downpour which however did little to dispel the high humidity. Most of the waiting runners were huddled under a tree near the start line in a vain attempt to keep dry, and some were understandably reluctant to emerge! Add to that the sheer number of runners and the start lists gradually turning to papier maché in the rain and the result was a handicap start that was not as crisp and efficient as it might have been. Everyone was sent on their way eventually but unfortunately two or three missed their assigned starts. Apologies to them! As already mentioned it was humid, warm and wet but most found the conditions favourable for running. Bev Ali was first away. "In handicaps I usually start first and finish last," she said. In 26 handicap races over nearly 20 years of membership Bev had never placed, let alone won a cup. All that changed today! Bev was the first starter and that was the last anyone saw of her until she rounded the last corner in glorious isolation to finish some four minutes clear of the rest. Congratulations Bev, patience is rewarded! Prelini Chiechi took the silver medal with a fine run and then Simon Burrell charged in to third place. There was only the briefest of pauses then before the deluge (runners, not rain). Mike White came in just ahead of Bruce McLaren and Cindy Croucher and then nearly seventy runners poured across the line in the space of four minutes. Well done, Mr Handicapper. Up to now we've never found it necessary to use a finishing funnel for a handicap race but if this number of runners becomes the norm then we'll have to consider it. Scratch man on the day was Ralph Street and he must have had an exhilarating run through the crowds to finish 16th in the excellent time of 26.02. I'd say something along the lines of "Streets ahead" but I'm sure Ralph has heard every possible variant on that! Phil Killingley was well pleased with his 27.24, which carried him up to 29th place, while third fastest was Ted Mockett on 28.41 for 51st place. The fastest nine men beat the half-hour, which was very encouraging. Fastest woman on 32.13 was Megan de Silva, although that only got her up to 44th place in the handicap. Marie Synnott-Wells's 34.01 brought her in 47th but third-fastest Becky Hall climbed up to 13th place with her 34.41. Also inside 35 minutes was Suzy Whatmough, with Gwen McCormack just a few seconds outside. After the race the opportunity was taken to make the presentation of club honours to Ralph Street for his third place in the Surrey Championships back in January. A presentation was also made to Lorna Smith. Lorna won the Coad Cup back in 2011 but the trophy itself had been accidentally damaged. It was thought to be a write-off but a craftsman was eventually able to restore it. This process took some time and meanwhile another Coad Cup race had been run and the trophy went to the new winner. The upshot was that Lorna never actually held the trophy - until today when she was presented with a miniature replica to keep. Those who started late in the handicap, please note that the actual times shown are calculated as if you had started on your correct handicap mark. TOUR OF EPSOM & EWELL Monday 8th - Friday 12th June As usual the "tour" took in a race every night for five days in venues including Horton Country Park, Nonsuch Park, Hogsmill and Nescot College. Phil Aiken was the only Ranelagh competitor, finishing 95th, 102nd, 83rd, 85th and 69th in the five races, each of 3-4 miles. Overall winner was Croydon's Alex Penfold who secured five straight wins in an aggregate time of 1:33.24. Phil placed 57th overall in 2:29.43. ALETSCH MOUNTAIN HALF MARATHON Sunday 28th June in the Swiss Alps. Peter Fordham reports: "Ranelagh 'A'(lpine) Team lead Britain home in Aletsch Race - start at 1,950 metres, climb 1,235 metres, descend 530 metres. After a winter of Mob Match glory there is still no stopping Ranelagh Men. The elite mountain squad of Alexander Fordham, Mike Peace and Peter Fordham were the outstanding club trio from Britain. Stiff opposition was expected from Blackheath and Bromley, but a demoralised club only mustered one entrant and he then withdrew, presumably on hearing of the Ranelagh threat. The Sheen Shufflers entrant was easily overcome in the first 5k." 1 M Petro (Eritrea) 1:26.36 Mike Peace 3:04.00 Alexander Fordham 3:05.50 Peter Fordham 3:14.40 KINGFIELD CANTER 2.85 miles handicap Wednesday 1st July This took place at just after noon on the hottest July day on record. Talk about mad dogs and Englishmen (and women)! 1 Alan Davidson 23.30 (actual time 23.00) 10 Sonia Rowland 28.29 (22.29) 11 Louise Piears 29.08 (23.38) WIMBLEDON TRAIL SERIES RACE 3 8 miles Wednesday 1st July ...and it hadn't cooled down much by 7pm for the final race in the series organised by Andy Bickerstaff and the Good Run Guide. Temperatures were still well into the 30s and even the wooded areas seemed to hold the heat rather than provide any respite. Perhaps not surprisingly, about a third of the pre-entries thought better of it and stayed at home, and a dozen or so more called it a day after one lap. All credit, then, to those who made it round the 8 miles, especially to Megan de Silva who was the leading woman by about a minute and a half. This completed a clean sweep of three wins for Megan, a feat she only missed last year through running off course in the final event. Congratulations too to Wiebke Kortum who was the leading over 45. Leading Ranelagh man was Al Morgan in 5th place. 1 T Grimes (E London) 47.07 5 Al Morgan 50.51 13 Mark Herbert 54.29 18 Megan de Silva 55.34 (1st woman) 31 Bruce McLaren 62.29 42 Wiebke Kortum 66.52 52 Rachel Revett 72.59 57 Mike White 74.18 65 Andy Hayward 79.01 SELF TRANSCENDENCE 10km Saturday 4th July in Battersea Park Gill Sanders had a break from the Triathlon tour and enjoyed a 10km run-out in Battersea Park.

Nobody else from the club seems to have run and I kept recalling what Clive Beauvais said about it when he ran it years ago : 'The worst bloody race I've ever done!' To be fair, they have changed the course slightly but it's definitely not one for the connoisseur." 1 D Morgan (Serp) 1:14.43 19 L Hartney (Read) 1:26.46 (1st woman) 33 Mick Lane 1:31.13 SELF
