 CHRISTMAS PARTY  Saturday 5th December at 7pm
 It's a new venue this year for our Christmas Party on December 5th: the Lass
 O'Richmond Hill at the top of Queen's Road.  Book your places now! 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 now. E-mail Michele
 Gibson micheleagibson@hotmail.com  or add your name to the list in
 the clubhouse, where you will also find a menu. Michele adds:
 "I need to receive payment by Tuesday 17th November! For anyone who has not
 paid by then, I will assume that they are not coming, and I will take their
 names off the list." 

 Phil Killingley writes:
 "The blue wave rolls on and on and Thames is the next club in line to be
 washed down the river. If we pull this off it'll be nine in a row. Two years
 ago it was at this fixture on Wimbledon Common that we lodged the first win
 in that series, by a tiny margin. Last year they ran a six month mob
 recruitment operation in a bid to win in Richmond Park, thwarted by our
 sheer numbers. 

 Come and join the Blue and Amber runners for another classic battle on the
 wrong side of the A3 - 2.30pm from the football pitches near Asda. It's a
 fun course with a fair amount of flat dry running interspersed with some
 muddy undulating bits including the Rifle Butts (don't expect your shoes to
 come out clean) over the regulation mob distance of 7.5 miles. As always,
 all speeds and all ages welcome. Hobble Gobble!"

 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
 wynfordwilliams@icloud.com  before the Christmas Party on 5th

 Peter has an inoperable brain tumour and is seeking urgent funding for
 treatment to prolong his life. His family are also hoping to raise awareness
 of the condition and contribute to charity. 
 As previously mentioned, Anna Reichwald is organising a raffle for Peter at
 the Christmas party on December 5th. Anna writes: "Some people have already
 kindly offered to donate raffle prizes and I can be contacted on anna.reichwald@blueyonder.co.uk if you need the prize to be picked up or
 please bring it to a Tuesday evening training session.  The businesses that
 have been contacted already for possible donations (although I have not
 heard back from all of them yet) are:
 Sporting Feet Richmond - who have kindly offered to donate a £50 voucher
 Sweaty Betty Richmond
 Lululemon Richmond
 Sweatshop Teddington
 Runners Need Kingston
 If anyone has any direct contacts or connections with these companies or can
 suggest any other businesses/ shops who may be able to donate a raffle prize
 then please let Anna know on anna.reichwald@blueyonder.co.uk."

 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.

 Saturday 7th November at West End Common (women) and Wimbledon Common (men)
 As usual, the women were in action first on League day. Conditions at West
 End Common in Esher were showery but very mild for November - some contrast
 to our last visit here when there was ice and snow! Once again there was a
 huge field contesting the two divisions, and despite a preliminary short lap
 there was a tremendous bottleneck as the runners queued to negotiate a
 narrow plank bridge into the woods. There were other narrow parts too, but
 the main problem for the leaders was to successfully pathfinder the route
 through the woods. SLH's Steph McCall, who had narrowly beaten our own Gill
 Sanders in the first League race, did not have Gill to contend with this
 time and seemed to be cruising to a comfortable win...until she missed a
 turning. Her pursuers almost made the same mistake but spotted a flag just
 in time. Steph was out of sight so it was some time before she realised her
 mistake. Backtracking desperately, she lost well over a minute before
 rejoining the correct route. 

 Overall winner, then, was Division 2 runner Phoebe Law of Kingston and Poly.
 Lucie Custance of Clapham was second across the line and Steph McCall was
 fourth but these were the 1-2 in Division 1. Megan de Silva led the Ranelagh
 team with another excellent top ten run. Julia Bailey had been carrying a
 slight injury since the last League race and so was not quite breathing down
 Megan's neck this time but finished a fine 23rd - and had Becky Hall almost
 breathing down her neck instead! Becky just made it into the top thirty, a
 good ten places higher than in the first League race. The five making up our
 'A' team was made up by Gwen McCormack 59th and Suzy Whatmough 64th - also
 both improving on their positions last time.  We finished 7th on the day and
 slipped a couple of places to 7th overall. But it's all very close - we are
 no more than 12 points behind the fourth-placed club. 

 And the story doesn't end there. We had an outstanding 18 runners
 altogether, including several League novices - more than one of whom was
 talking about investing in some spikes before the next race! Our 'B' team -
 Wiebke Kortum, Anna Scally, Becky Northmore, Elisa Ferrua and Lara Werrett -
 closed in 9th 'B' team. 'C' teams are no longer officially counted in the
 results but our next quintet - Karen Weir, Natalie Thomas, Hannah Doyle,
 Ashleigh Ferris and Amy Sillitoe - would I am sure have been well placed.
 Finally we had 60% of a 'D' team in Deepa Sharma, Ellie Lawley and Louise

 According to the Athletics Weekly report, the League is expected to think
 again about their insistence on keeping both Leagues within a single race.
 Next season might see the two Divisions at separate venues or in two races
 at the same venue.                

 Phil Killingley reports on the men's race:
 "As the rain lashed down on the morning of Surrey League fixture 2,
 Ranelagh's runners were optimistic they could overhaul Clapham Chasers and
 climb to 7th place, out of the two relegation spots.  We started the fixture
 4 points behind Belgrave and 45 points behind Clapham, the two clubs in
 touching distance.  These margins are tiny in Surrey League terms, and with
 a far stronger team on paper we looked ready to sail clear. 

 The course was a splashy, mainly flat 2-lap romp round the top of Wimbledon
 Common with a single descent and rise providing scant compensation for those
 that call themselves real cross-country runners (Eirin McDaid was seen
 crying into his lemonade in the Fox and Grapes after the race).  After
 Archie St Aubyn's fast start last time, it was fellow Optima Tri-club member
 Oli Murphy's turn to start at the pace of a bike rather than a runner.  He
 still lodged a gritty second lap run, to finish 8th in the team, with Archie
 hanging on for 7th. Jackson Creegan declined the offer of a warm-up jog and
 proceeded to score first for Ranelagh, albeit slightly further down than in
 fixture 1.  Eirin, Richard Gregory (great to see him back) and Captain Phil
 ran completely separate races only to finish 2 seconds apart in positions
 37-39, proving there's more than one way to skin a cat (another 50m and I'd
 have had them both!).  Performance of the day was arguably George Howard's
 (81.3% and a record for him), finishing 5th scorer only half a minute
 further back, and he was closely followed by Carl Selya-Hammer in another
 good display (79.2% - best ever x-c for Ranelagh).  Steve Whitehead was 9th
 and Rick Jenner astonished himself by closing the scoring positions.  Rick
 subsequently changed his Facebook profile picture to the Anchorman Trophy -
 classy!  Commiserations to Marc Snaith who wasn't far behind in 11th, and
 even more so to Peter Haarer who left home at 12.30pm and due to traffic
 pulled up in his car just as the race started.  Excellent performances also
 from Dave Lawley (73.5%), Lars Lundqvist (72.2%) and Bruce McLaren (73.5%)
 for setting x-country record percentages, and a superb turnout from the team
 in general on a soggy if warm afternoon.

 So did we do it?  Well we were 7th in the match, but near rivals Clapham and
 Belgrave were 18 and 31 points ahead respectively.  Surprise 8th place was
 for Thames, usually a top three team.  Guildford and Godalming look
 thoroughly relegated already.   The gap to Clapham and Belgrave is now
 slightly larger I'm afraid - 63 and 35 points respectively.  But on the plus
 side, I feel our potential is better than either of those teams, and if we
 can get a strong team out in races 3 and 4, we will survive.  We just need a
 bit of luck to go our way!   Thanks again to Sonia and Steve, Andy Bicks,
 Alan, Chris Owens, Jim Forrest, sickly Ian Kenton and Marcus Atkins for your
 superlative support on the course, and Ken for the results and stats yet

 This was something of a red-letter day for Hercules Wimbledon who claimed
 their first Surrey League Division 1 victory since 1978.

 In the junior events we were represented on this occasion only by the Atkins
 family, who both ran strongly: Izzy 12th overall and 11th Under 15 after a
 fast start; and Greg 25th overall and 14th Under 17.

 HAROLD LEE CUP MOB MATCH v ORION HARRIERS  Saturday 24th October  7.67 miles
 in Richmond Park
 Here's the result of the club veterans championship and sealed handicap
 which was incorporated with the mob match. Peter Haarer won the Spendlove
 Cup as the leading vet overall. Trevor Maguire took the McDowell Cup for the
 leading over 50 and Chris Owens won the Maslin Mug for the top over 60. The
 sealed handicap was a clear victory for Bert Grieco ahead of Chris Read and
 Peter Fordham.

 CRISSY FIELD parkrun 5km  Saturday 31st October
 Lloyd Camp reports:
 "I ran the Crissy Field San Francisco parkrun (one of only four in the USA)
 on the 31st October, Halloween Day. It was a small field of only 34 runners
 (parkrun has yet to take hold in the USA as it has in many other countries,
 but when it does, watch out!), and most of them were Brits from Bristol. But
 what makes the SF parkrun interesting is that because of the time
 differences around the world it is the last event anywhere on the planet to
 be held each Saturday so the final runner is the last parkrun finisher in
 the world that day. It was characterised by runners in Halloween costumes
 and we all had startlingly garish cupcakes afterwards. Well worth the effort
 if anyone is in that part of the world."

 From Athletics International:
 "One Kenyan who definitely will not be bidding for an Olympic berth is
 Julius Njogu (28), who cheated his way into second place in the Nairobi
 International Marathon on October 25. Officials discovered that he had run
 little more than one kilometre, joining the leading runners just outside the
 stadium. Instead of claiming prize money of about $7000 he was arrested and
 charged with fraud."
