SURREY LEAGUES The next League races are on Saturday 7th November. The men are back on Wimbledon Common but hosted by Belgrave Harriers this time. Start times are 2.30pm for juniors and 3pm for seniors. Location and course map:. The women's races are at West End Common, Esher. Seniors run at 12 noon, followed by juniors at 1pm and 1.30pm. Location and course map:. For both events all are welcome and you can register on the day. NEXT JOB FOR THE MOB Following our stunning success in this season's first mob match last Saturday, it's time to look ahead to the next. We are facing the might of Thames Hare & Hounds on Saturday 28th November on their Wimbledon Common course. Start time is 2.30pm. Technically this is an away fixture, but the Thames HQ is no more than a couple of hundred metres from Richmond Park's Robin Hood Gate, so it hardly counts as away really. We can expect Thames to be stronger at the front of the field than Orion were, so that massive blue wave of Ranelagh vests will be all the more important. Don't forget, everyone needed, everyone counts. Join the Blue Wave! VIRGIN LONDON MARATHON BALLOT London Marathon organisers have substantially reduced the number of guaranteed places on offer to clubs - citing the increase in "good for your age" qualifiers, most of whom are club athletes. Our allocation has accordingly been reduced to just two. If you have been rejected in the public ballot and meet the club's qualifying criteria of having run in two mob matches during the past twelve months (or run one and marshalled club events twice), please contact our Hon Sec Wyn Williams email@example.com before the Christmas Party on 5th December. KEN POWLEY... ...was knocked off his bike the day before the mob match and was very sorry to miss such a momentous occasion. Fortunately the damage seems to be confined to severe bruising, but he can't get out and about for the moment. We all wish him a speedy recovery. In the meantime we had to resort to old fashioned paper and pencil methods to produce the result on Saturday! SUBSCRIPTIONS... ...for 2015-16 are well overdue but there are still quite a few active members who have not yet paid. The club is unable to register you with England Athletics unless your subs are paid up. Despite the increase in the EA registration fee to £12, we are keeping our subscription rates unchanged for at least another year. That's £40 for seniors, £20 for second-claim members and those who are retired and over 60, £10 for under 20s and students and non-running members. There is also a £70 family membership.

WHAT'S HAPPENED *************** HAROLD LEE CUP MOB MATCH v ORION HARRIERS Saturday 24th October 7.67 miles in Richmond Park Phil Killingley reports: "We start the 2015-16 season with a record 7-match winning run in mobs, having won all four for the first time ever in 2014-15, and having broken our 30-year bogey run in Epping Forest. What more is there to achieve, you might ask? Satisfied we are not (as Yoda from Star Wars might say). This year we set out to retain our winning run as long as possible, and see if we could get 100 people out at the first fixture, vs Orion at home. Otherwise known as 'Operation Centurion'. If we did that, we might also sneak over our record mob turnout - 106 people vs Blackheath in 1988. There was no room for complacency. Orion had beaten us in Richmond Park two years ago. They had sworn vengeance for Operation Betelgeuse last year, and were posting videos of Orion members chanting traditional songs on YouTube to motivate their faithful, promising double points for this away fixture, and bringing a coach-load. Nor did the omens look good - Ranelagh statistician and general legend Ken Powley was knocked off his bike the day before, preventing him from supporting the fixture. But down at the clubhouse on Petersham Road at 2pm, things were looking up. Although Orion had arrived, bringing a very decent away turnout of 50 people, Ranelagh had logged more than that already on the scoresheets - Alan Hedger scribbling furiously to record them all. By the time we had to get up to the start, we were still some way short of 100, with 89. Would there be others waiting to register up the hill? Alan strode over the road in the park with his clipboard towards the great oak tree surrounded by runners preparing themselves to mob. A huge crowd of Ranelites swarmed towards his blue-capped figure and your captain knew immediately that we had done it! In total we turned out 117 starters - beating the club record by 11. Cindy Croucher's video on Facebook records the superb mob chant for posterity. Christopher Camacho replied to that post: 'It was so loud I could just about hear some sound without wearing my implant processor and that says a lot!'. Then off we ran down a dry-underfoot Queen's Ride towards the ballet school in pursuit of glory. The first time the new course was run in October 2013, Boniface Kongin, a guest runner, ran it in 41:37. That was beaten last November by Ralph Street's 41:30. Jon Pepper decided to do the minimum needed to pinch Ralph's crown, winning yesterday's race in 41:29. Having dumped his car in Balham, and sprinted to the clubhouse from Richmond to beat the traffic, it was his second race of the day. Waves of blue followed thereafter. 7 in 10. 13 in 20. 19 in 30. 25 in 40. 30 in 50. 36 in 60. 43 in 70. And so it went on. And on. Ranelagh's dominance showed in the final scoreline of 1715 to 2909, bemusing our Orion competitors. The women's race was won by Orion's Mestawet, with Becky Hall second and Gwen McCormack not far behind in third. Ranelagh's women's contingent was 31 strong (another record?), versus 9 from Orion. There are far too many to name, but I should record the Ranelagh Veteran Champions: Peter Haarer won the V40s with a numerically pleasing time of 44:44; Trevor Maguire wasn't very far behind to take the V50s, and Chris Owens, our bronze world triathlon champ, the V60s. The force of the mob was strong in Simon Burrell, who ran with what he described to me before the race as a "mild stress fracture" in his foot - wishing him a speedy recovery and a better choice of adjective. It was also strong in the many people running the challenging 7.5 miles for the first time, and in those who came out despite injury or illness to marshal or support - your efforts are much appreciated. But the force of the mob was strongest in our numbers across men and women, young and old, fast and slow. This is an event that brings us together as a club and you should all be proud of your place in Ranelagh history. Finishing with a message from the Orion captain. 'Orion had a thoroughly enjoyable day and although we didn't get the result we wanted the spirit and the fun of the mob matches was there for all to see'." The race incorporated a sealed handicap within the vets championship. For reasons of space we'll hold over the full result until the next e-news (though you can see it on our website here: ). Winner was Bert Grieco, with Chris Read and Peter Fordham filling the minor places. A few historical notes: that former record turn-out of 106 was on the 16th January 1988 when we hosted Blackheath Harriers. They turned up with a remarkable 92 runners. As we were housed in temporary accommodation at the time, we borrowed the Richmond Canoe Club's changing rooms for the afternoon. 1982 London Marathon winner Hugh Jones led Ranelagh's team but was beaten into second place by the heathens' Tim Nash. 89-a-side scored, and from a total count of 14,554 points we lost by a margin of 114. Six of the 1988 team were in action again today: Gordon Whitson, who finished 13th back in '88, Peter Haarer 24th, Bill Harvey 28th, Mike Peace 34th, Clive Naish 41st and David Wright 50th. Only Peter, 19 at the time, has improved with the passage of 27 years! Ranelagh had only nine women in the race, Blackheath even fewer. Sonia Rowland was the leader. SURREY COUNTY MASTERS (aka VETERANS) CHAMPIONSHIPS Saturday 17th October in Richmond Park As usual, we hosted the Surrey Masters championships but officials, results and medals etc were in the hands of Surrey Athletics. There were two races, firstly a 6km for men over 60 and all women, then a 10km for men 40-59. The first race was the bigger of the two, with 110 finishers as against 84 in the 10km. There was a slight hiccup in the first race as the leading M60s and women went slightly off course, but they were quickly called back and no damage was done. 62 year-old Bob Bradbury from Woking dominated and finished a good half minute clear of second-placed Ian Kitching of SLH. A similar distance behind in third place, and securing Ranelagh's first medal of the afternoon, was Chris Owens. 17th overall, and winning the M70 class, was Hercules Wimbledon's former rock star, King Crimson guitarist Peter Giles. Ranelagh's new M60 David Powell unluckily missed the start by at least half a minute but fought his way through to the top half of the field. He and Mike Peace closed in the Ranelagh M60+ team, which was initially placed joint third before corrections to the results pushed them down to fifth. Tom Reay followed, and then Allan Lang who won a "virtual" gold medal in the M75 class. The leading women Nikla Sturzaker of Herne Hill and Nicola Richmond of Dulwich battled it out to the line in third and fourth places overall - but both came away with golds anyway. Sturzaker won the W40 class and Richmond the W45. Oddly the leading W35 was well behind them in ninth place. Leading W50 in 19th place was Guildford's Susanna Harrison, pushing Marie Synnott-Wells back into the silver medal spot. Bonnie Morgan came next, leading our W35-44 team of herself, Karen Weir and Hannah Doyle into fifth place. Deepa Sharma backed up the team. We thought we might have a chance in the W45+ team competition and so it proved. Marie, Ellen Clague and Sonia Rowland took the silver medals, and Sonia received another silver as the second W60 home. Corinne Bishop was sixth in that category. In the 10km M40-59 race it was South London's Stuart Major who as usual made the rest of the field look very pedestrian indeed. Multiple gold-medallist in this event, Stuart finished almost a minute and a half ahead of his nearest rival and won the M45 gold. Third overall, and first M50, was Guildford's Mark Tennyson. Again we had to go down the field a little before the winner of the younger age group, M40, appeared. Ranelagh's first finisher was Kris Davidson who placed 4th in the M40s, missing a bronze medal by a single second. The M40-49 team was closed in seventh by Bruce McLaren and Kevin Knowles. It was left to our M50-59 team to give us our only gold medals of the day. A rapidly returning to fitness Trevor Maguire led them in, taking the individual M50 bronze in the process. Then came another excellent run from Colin Brett, 5th in the M50s, and then John Shaw, 4th M55. Providing backup not far behind were Richard Holme, Peter Weir and Simon Burrell.

The Race Director pointed out that tourists rarely came back. I described it as a bleak expanse of football pitches overlooked by a prison, which possibly explains why. But 3½ years later, I was back. The South of England Cross Country Relays have made Wormwood Scrubs their home and, with a full programme of races from U13 to Senior, they offer an alternative to those who are not Surrey-eligible and still young enough not be classed as a Master. Rugby traffic delayed journeys into and through Richmond so both teams' declaration sheets were completed and handed in with a member of each still to arrive. But arrive they did. And with time to boot, too. The Senior Women's race consisted of three legs of 3k, following the perimeter of the Scrubs. Fresh from her top 15 finish at the opening Surrey League race the previous week, Julia set off full of confidence, quickly settling into second place. Not surprisingly she had dropped a few places by the end of the lap, finishing in 8th place, three ahead of former Bath University teammate, South London's Rachel Coe-O'Brien. Bracknell, Newbury and Herne Hill occupied the podium positions. The Women's Captain took on second leg responsibility. Like Julia, Becky ran the 8th quickest leg time and, with Newbury unable to match their opening leg performance, we moved up to 7th. Bracknell retained first place but, with no final leg runner, their race was done. So second placed Belgrave now assumed the lead, ahead of Barnet and Dulwich, who moved into contention thanks to Claire Elms, who ran the fastest second leg. It was left to Suzy to close things out. London Heathside lay 15 seconds ahead. Less than that behind lay Winchester with one-time sub-2:40 marathoner Michaela McCallum and South London, with Steph McCall. Steph had broken the Surrey Road Relay course record to claim gold, overturning a significant deficit to Herne Hill. Today was no different. Starting 1'05" behind Belgrave's Rose O'Brien, she passed all eight runners ahead of her and crossed the line with a 17 seconds advantage, running the fastest time of the day by 27 seconds. Belgrave held onto second but there was a real scrap behind, with Heathside's Sarah Swinhoe running the 6th fastest time to snatch 3rd from Dulwich by a mere three seconds. The gaps were too much for Suzy to make up any places so we finished a highly creditable 7th in our first appearance, though behind four other Surrey teams. For our B Team, Gwen ran the opening leg just 35 seconds slower than Julia to came home 14th. Elisa and Becky (a different one) gained valuable cross country experience on legs two and three as we finished in 16th. Though these relays may have the lowest profile of the half dozen road and cross country events put on by the South of England AA, that's actually no bad thing. It won't be another 3½ years before I come back."

Mick has a special aim in mind: it's claimed in Runner's World that the greatest span between first and last marathons under 3 hours is 36 years. Mick ran 2:44 back in June 1979, a couple of weeks after his 19th birthday. So if he can slot in another sub-3 now he will at least equal that record. 1 B Kiprono (Kenya) 2:16.00 (chip time 2:16.00) 57 Mick Lane 3:09.59 (3:09.43) RIVER THAMES HALF MARATHON Sunday 18th October at Walton Roy Reeder of Strags and Ranelagh organised this successful event in which a handful of Ranelagh took part.
