 Our first mob match of the season will be at home to Orion Harriers on
 Saturday 24th October. Orion, above all the other mob match clubs, will be
 out to avenge our defeat of them last year. We can expect large numbers of
 Orion men and women  to make the trip over from their Epping Forest home,
 and we'll have to meet them with equally large numbers to stand a chance. If
 we can outnumber them, so much the better. The more of us there are, the
 better our chances. We need absolutely everyone to turn out if you possibly

 Many of the pre-ordered t-shirts were collected and paid for at the Thomas
 Cup or Page Cup races, but if you haven't picked yours up yet please try to
 catch Michele Gibson or Andy Hayward at the clubhouse. Please pay on receipt
 or send a cheque for £20 payable to Ranelagh Harriers to 79 Thames Side,
 Staines, TW18 2HF. Unclaimed t-shirts will shortly be sold off.   

 Our men's and women's teams both start their Surrey League Division 1
 campaigns on Saturday 10th October. The men are on Wimbledon Common, though
 the start and finish is in a relatively rarely-visited part of the common at
 Caesar's Well close to the end of Sunset Road (SW19 4UL). Car parking close
 to the start is limited. Juniors run first at 2.30pm (4km), followed by
 seniors at 3pm (8km). Everyone is welcome to run, register with our team
 manager on the day. Note that there is a Division 2 race taking place at
 1.30pm. Course map:. 
 The women are at Roundshaw Common, Wallington, organised by Collingwood AC.
 Their HQ is at Croygas Sports and Social Club, Mollison Drive, Wallington
 SM6 9BY - approximately 2 minutes walk from the start. There is no parking
 at Croygas, but plenty is available in local side roads. Senior women start
 at 12 noon (6km), under 17s and under 15s run at 1pm (4km) and under 13s are
 at 1.30pm (3km). All are welcome, register on the day. Details:. 

 We are once again hosting the Surrey Veterans (aka Masters) championships in
 the Park on Saturday 17th October. This is open to all Surrey qualified over
 40s (men) and over 35s (women). All the women plus the over 60 men run first
 over a 6km course starting at 2.15pm. The men 40-59 follow on at 3pm,
 running 10km. Individual medals are awarded in 5 year age groups and team
 medals in 10 year age groups. Entries must be made in advance - on the day
 entries will be accepted in our clubhouse at £8 but are not eligible for the
 team awards. Marie Synnott-Wells nandmwells@aol.com  is collecting
 women's entries and Trevor Maguire trevor.maguire@bt.com  is
 dealing with the men's. Please provide your dob, address and EA number if
 known. Deadline is Friday 9th October.

 For the ninth successive year the London Marathon has set a new world record
 for an annual single day charity fundraising event. Runners in the 2015
 event raised £54.1 million for charity, the total since the race was founded
 in 1981 now standing at more than £770 million. A record number of 247,069
 (42% of them women) applied for the 2016 race on April 24.

 All right, I know Christmas is a long way away still, but it will as usual
 be upon us before we know where we are. So our Social Secretaries Michele
 and Andy have already reserved the venue for our Christmas Party and are
 taking bookings. We're trying a new venue this year, the Lass O'Richmond
 Hill at the top of Queen's Road.  It's less expensive than our previous
 venue - the cost is £40 to include a three-course dinner, wine, a disc
 jockey and dancing. There is a limit of 80 people, so get your booking in
 early. E-mail Michele Gibson micheleagibson@hotmail.com  or add
 your name to the list in the clubhouse, where you will also find a menu. 

 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:.

 September at Rushmoor Arena, Aldershot.
 The site of the former Army display ground at Rushmoor has been the venue
 for the SEAA Road Relays for many years and also hosted the Fleet Half
 Marathon for a while. In many ways, it is a perfect venue - easily
 accessible from the motorway network, plenty of parking and a good testing
 traffic-free course which allows active spectators to see the runners
 several times per lap. Sadly, since the venue has been more or less
 abandoned by the Army it crumbles away a little more each year. I'm told
 that the Aldershot club often puts together a work party on the Friday prior
 to the races in order to effect emergency repairs to the worst potholes, but
 by the next year the holes are back again. With so much history attached to
 this course it would be a shame to move the race to another venue - if
 indeed one can be found - but I wonder how long it will remain tenable. 

 The senior women's event and all the junior races take place on Saturday
 with the veteran and senior men following on Sunday. We started two senior
 women's teams but on the men's side we entered only the M50 race this year. 

 The first surprise in the women's race was that the leader rounding the
 first corner was a young man. The vest he was wearing was that of the City
 of Norwich club. I don't know the back story to this, but my original guess
 was that one of the Norwich junior teams missed their race and were given
 special dispensation to run with the women. Fortunately the lad in question
 didn't stay ahead too long -his team might have affected the unfolding of
 the women's race. 

 The second surprise, after Master Norwich had fallen back, was that no
 Aldershot team could be seen in the sizeable leading group. After nine
 straight wins in this championship, and with a B team more often than not
 well placed too, you could not have got good odds against them making it ten
 in a row. But as it turned out, minus any of their real star names, they
 never got into contention for the win, though they did fight their way up to
 third place on the podium. It was the largely unheralded Cambridge and
 Coleridge team who held on to secure their first win in this event.

 Becky Hall took on the tough opening stage for Ranelagh and ran well to
 finish just inside the top half of the 78 teams who set out. Julia Bailey
 then took the metaphorical baton and set a time just a couple of seconds
 faster than Becky, gaining four places in the process. Michelle Davies ran
 strongly on stage three and though losing a couple of places she set up
 Megan de Silva nicely for a storming anchor leg. Megan's 14.22 gained ten
 places for the team and brought us home 26th. That time places her 11th on
 Ranelagh's all-time ranking list for this circuit (see seaa_best for the full list). 

 Our B team of Lara Werrett, Karen Weir, Victoria Elbourne and Ellen Clague
 stayed in much the same position throughout the race and finished in 62nd
 place, promoted to 61st after the disqualification of the City of Norwich B
 team ahead of them. The plot thickens...was this in fact the boys team
 running under their female team-mates' names? Did they think no-one would

 On Sunday the weather was still dry but a little cooler than on the
 Saturday. All the vets teams ran together, but amongst the M50s Richard
 Holme completed the first leg in a solid 12th place. Trevor Maguire gained a
 couple and then Paul Sinton-Hewitt took us into the top ten. Finally, an
 eye-opening anchor leg from Colin Brett swept us into an excellent sixth
 PAGE CUP 5 miles handicap  Saturday 26th September in Richmond Park
 There was a surprisingly small field for the Page Cup this year, only 30
 runners toeing the line. It was a fine day, most un-cross-country-like, and
 perhaps that encouraged people to make alternative plans for what remains of
 our Indian summer. That, and the traffic chaos expected in Twickenham for
 Saturday evening's England v Wales rugby world cup match! A small field
 increases your chances of winning, of course, and though there was no
 outstanding favourite, the marshals out on the course could clearly see that
 one or two in particular fancied their chances.   

 Corinne Bishop had been first away and she held on to the lead for quite
 some time. Indeed, she was still ahead when she reached Sidmouth Wood on the
 way home, but that's a long drag from there to the finish. Philippa Kitchen
 was one of those who were really going for it and she swept past Corinne
 with half a mile still to run. Anna Reichwald was next in line but she was
 overhauled first by Andy Bickerstaff and then by Mark Herbert. Andy and Mark
 had Philippa in their sights but she was too far away to be caught. This was
 Philippa's first handicap win, though the Page Cup has previously resided in
 the Kitchen household - hubby Rob won it in 2012. 

 In typical all-action style Mark passed Andy on the run-in to take the
 silver medal, leaving Andy with the bronze. Mark's time of 31.03 was
 officially the second fastest of the day behind Nick Twomey's 29.15.
 However, it's possible that Nick, who missed his official start time by 5
 minutes, may have inadvertently run off course. Third fastest was Bruce
 McLaren on 33.06. Fastest woman was Wiebke Kortum who recorded a course
 personal best of 35.14. Second and third were Karen Weir on 37.44 and Verka
 Lafeuille on 40.34.
