     at Coulsdon

 After a record home turnout of 117 in this season's first mob match and a
 record away turnout of 92 in the second mob match, where do we go from here?
 On to the third, of course! This coming Saturday, 12th December, we are away
 to South London Harriers on their downsland course at Coulsdon. We have now
 won an unprecedented nine mob matches in a row, so can we make it ten? Of
 course we can! South London will be no pushovers, mind, but if we can get
 another good turnout and outnumber our hosts, then that's half the battle.
 The course is the traditional 7.5 miles, beginning and ending with half a
 mile across the expanse of Farthing Downs. In between come two laps around
 the optimistically named Happy Valley. Parts of the course are fast
 grassland, but in other places there will be mud, so trail shoes or spikes
 are advised. Register on the day. Start time is 2.30pm. Be part of the Blue

 Coulsdon South station is conveniently placed for the SLH headquarters and
 our men's Captain Phil Killingley has suggested we travel mob-handed by
 train. Phil writes: 
 "Meet on Platform 13 at Clapham Junction at 12:50. This is to catch the mob
 train - the 12:59, changing onto platform 5 at East Croydon, arriving 13:31
 at Coulsdon South. 
 If you miss that, go for the 13:13 or the 13:29. All three trains leave
 Clapham Junction Platform 13 and then you change onto platform 5 at East
 The clubhouse is a 5-10min walk from the station and the course is 5-10min
 walk in the opposite direction from the station, so if you're in a hurry
 don't bother with the clubhouse."

 If you're driving, there is a large pay and display car park in Lion Green
 Road, just around the corner from the SLH headquarters. If you're late there
 is limited parking on Downs Road, close to the start. A map showing the SLH
 HQ and the start can be found on their website here:.  Our own
 website has further details here:. 

 Many thanks go to Michele Gibson and Andy Hayward for organising an
 excellent sell-out Christmas Party last Saturday at The Lass of Richmond
 Hill. We hope everyone enjoyed themselves. During the evening we held the
 ballot for our guaranteed London Marathon places. We were allocated only two
 places this year, and there was a record sixteen names in the hat. Lucky
 winners were Paul Wapshott and Ted Mockett. Get training boys!  

 There was also a raffle and silent auction to raise money for Pete Wright's
 ongoing cancer treatment, and thanks go to Anna Reichwald, Hannah Doyle,
 Cindy Croucher and Ellen Clague for organising this. Anna writes: "A huge
 thank you to everyone who donated, bought tickets and supported the Raffle
 and Silent Auction for Pete held at the Club's Christmas dinner on Saturday
 5th December. It was lovely to see Pete and Jackie there and in total the
 Club raised a huge £1,080. This will be pledged over onto Pete's YouCaring
 webpage. Thank you RH Runners on behalf of Pete for all your support and

 their EA registration. Go to livemyathletics.uka.org.uk/LicenceCheck/
 and enter either your registration number (if you know it) or your name and
 date of birth. Press "Search" and it should come back with your registration
 number and an indication of whether your registration is up to date. We have
 generally not registered members who are non-competitive. If your
 registration is shown as not up to date, this may be an oversight on our
 part or it might mean that according to our records your club subscription
 for 2015-16 has not been paid. Please check, and if you think your
 registration should have been paid, please get in touch. Note that most
 championship races require up to date registration of all entrants, so if
 you are planning on running the Southern or the National any registration
 queries must be dealt with quickly. Note also that if you have been
 previously registered with another club, we are unable to take over your
 registration payments. You first need to go through the formal "change of

 SEAA INTER-COUNTIES CHAMPIONSHIPS  Saturday 12th December at Biggleswade.
 Good luck to Megan de Silva and Julia Bailey who have been selected as team
 member and reserve respectively for Surrey in the Senior Women's race, and
 to Poppy Jensen of Stragglers and Ranelagh who is in the under 13s team.  

 We will be entering teams and individuals in the Surrey County Championships
 as usual -  they take place this year at Denbies Vineyard, Dorking, on
 SUNDAY 10th January. However, this year we will also be entering individuals
 in the Middlesex Championships, which take place the day before at Wormwood
 Scrubs. There are races for all age groups in both events. To be eligible
 for Surrey you need to have been born in Surrey/South West London or to have
 lived there for nine months. The same qualifying conditions apply to
 Middlesex county, which is defined as "the London boroughs of Brent, Camden,
 Ealing, Enfield, Hackney, Hammersmith & Fulham, Haringey, Harrow,
 Hillingdon, Hounslow, Islington, Kensington & Chelsea, Richmond (north of
 the River Thames), Tower Hamlets, Westminster and the City of London." All
 Championship races require entry well in advance, so contact the
 captains/team managers if you'd like to be entered. 

 Although these don't take place until Saturday January 30th, the entry
 deadline is approaching. The venue is Parliament Hill on Hampstead Heath and
 there are races for men and women and junior age groups. Late entries are
 not accepted. So if you'd like to run please contact the captains/team
 managers as soon as possible. 

 HENTY RELAY  Saturday 26th December in Richmond Park
 Need a break from the festivities and the over-indulgence? Come along to our
 Christmas fun relay on Saturday 26th! All members, relatives and friends are
 welcome, all ages and all speeds. Start time is 12 noon but you must come to
 the clubhouse by 11.30 to be allocated a team. 

 David Symons from Thames sends details of some events that might be of
 interest to us: 
 "Second Sunday 5 Series - next race 13 December.  Thames have launched a
 regular, low key, five mile race on Wimbledon Common on the second Sunday of
 every month at 9.30am from the Thames clubhouse.  It's a good, traditional,
 run which gives some fast paced running or just to add a bit of spice as
 part of those pre-marathon long runs.  Entry's just £3 and that pays for the
 free tea and cake afterwards.  Our next run is on 13 December and has a
 festive theme to it.  2016 will see runs every Second Sunday - as the name
 suggests!  Full details at www.secondsunday5.com.

 The Dash For The Splash - 28 February 2016.  Thames's popular 'brook-themed'
 10k is back for a third time, raising funds for nature conservation on
 Wimbledon Common. The race was full last year and we're expecting this to be
 the same in 2016.  Full details at www.dashforthesplash.com."

 ...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.
 Post your cheque to Membership Secretary, Ranelagh Harriers, 135a Petersham
 Road, Richmond, Surrey TW10 7AA or leave it in an envelope at the clubhouse.

 MOB MATCH v THAMES HARE & HOUNDS  Saturday 28th November on Wimbledon Common
 Phil Killingley reports:
 "If you were one of the relatively few wearing a black Saltire on your white
 vest, there must have been a grim inevitability about lining up in the boggy
 Memorial playing fields, alongside an army of Amber and Blue vests roaring
 the Hobble Gobble chant.  92 of us it was, to 39 of them. Game over?  Not
 quite. Thames have a tradition of getting runners out at the sharp end, and
 before the match a number of people were worrying about this. 

 This was a great course. Lots of rain in the last week made it pretty boggy
 underfoot. On top of that, storms had felled two trees on the course that
 had to be climbed over (or hurdled for the more athletic). Throw in the
 stream, the Butts, a fresh crosswind and a fast section at the top, and it
 had the makings of a classic. 

 Thames managed to hold their own for a bit. They had 5 in the first 10 and
 10 in 20. But fast forward now to the clubhouse after the race.  The Thames
 captain had finished compiling the results and came up to acknowledge
 Him: 'What really won it for you was this' (points at a string of Ranelagh
 runners on the results sheet between positions 50 and 60). 
 Me: 'Yes, there's a technical term for that - it's known as a blue wave.'
 Him: 'Ah...'

 Looking more closely, it turns out that of the 33 runners from positions 49
 to 81, 29 were ours. An awesome blue wave, led by Rich Astley in a great
 first run for the club and brought home by Simon Hedger. 

 There was a good omen too, for those paying very close attention. Clive
 Naish turned up to get a number from Alan. Clive has the longest sequence of
 consecutive mob matches of anyone in the club. I suggested we give him the
 corresponding number for his vest, but not even Clive knew how many he had
 done. So he got the next available number in the pile - 126. By sheer
 coincidence, this turned out to be exactly how many mob matches Clive had
 completed in a row.  (And now he has 127). 

 Well done to Jon Pepper for his win, and Jackson Creegan for being only five
 seconds behind in second - both were superb. Megan de Silva was first lady,
 and Laura Blazey in her first run for Ranelagh was third. At the other end
 of our mob, respect goes to Tony Clark, Steve Rowland and Umberto Grieco for
 enduring the mud longer than anyone else! (Ed's note: Don't rub it in - have
 you never heard of the Duke of Plaza-Toro?) (Ed's other note: Umberto was
 enjoying himself so much that he ran an extra couple of miles). And
 congratulations to the not insignificant number of you somewhere in between!

 Most ever mob appearances here:. See where you
 are!  David Wright extended his tally to 162 yesterday.  Each of the 'top
 four' all timers were there - David, Steve Rowland (141), Mike Peace (131)
 and Clive (129).  Further down, Chris Owens completed 75 matches in the
 Orion race (and now 76); Andy Bickerstaff reached 75 today; Chris Camacho
 reached 40. 

 Roll on SLH in two weeks' time (Sat 12 December, 2.30pm) when we attempt to
 make it 10 in a row. Details of the Ranelagh mob team train to Coulsdon from
 Clapham Junction are above!  I might need to get in touch with Southern
 trains to lay on a few extra carriages at this rate!"

 Following on from our all-time record mob match turn-out of 117 at home to
 Orion, our muster of 92 today also set a record as our biggest ever mob for
 an away match. 

 Later on a couple of dozen sat down to an excellent supper at Thames's old
 headquarters at the King's Head in Roehampton, where for once we were
 outnumbered by our hosts. 

 LONDON YOUTH GAMES Saturday 14th November at Parliament Hill
 As well as those reported in the last e-news, we had one additional Ranelagh
 junior in the Under 11s race: this was Maisie Jensen, who finished an
 excellent third in 6.03, six seconds behind the winner.  

 JUNIOR MARATHON RELAY  Saturday 21st November in Richmond Park
 Colin Brett reports:
 "It was a dark and stormy morning as thirteen Ranelagh juniors toed the line
 for this year's effort to improve our Marathon Relay record of 2.57.15.
 Fortunately several hardy parents joined the fun and worked almost as hard
 as the children to keep them all warm enough to complete the challenge.

 As if 1 degree temperatures weren't cold enough by the time the strong winds
 joined in it was a bitter battle. Fortunately the youthful coaching staff
 brought lots of post marathon space blankets. I'm fairly confident at least
 one of them had Apollo 8 mission written on it. These were placed at each of
 the changeover points and athletes duly wrapped as they finished each
 Minutes ticked by as speeds lulled in the middle of the challenge, so it was
 great to see the speeds and efforts pick up as we got closer and closer to
 our target. If you think this is an easy challenge it really isn't, think
 interval session, each athlete sprints 200 meters approximately 18 times.
 Being Harriers it all has to be done off road so we use a slightly shortened
 version of the Ratchford Relay course. I'm very pleased to report our hardy
 heroes and heroines came in with a time of 2.55.35. Pizza, cake and hot
 chocolate at the club house helped revive some very cold runners. Our team
 was Mat, Oliver, Sam, Daniel, Harvey, Noah, Luke, Poppy, Maisie, Dillon,
 Jasmine, Aidan and Finn."

 only recourse is to call on your spirit, which fortunately functions
 independently of logic."
