 ...to our men's Captain Phil Killingley and Louise on the arrival of a
 bouncing baby boy, Albie, early on Monday 8th February. As you will see
 below, the proud dad did not let this momentous event interfere with his
 attendance at the final Surrey League race! 

 Chris Jones and England Athletics Board member and co-chair of London
 Regional Council Peter Crawshaw visited the club on Tuesday 9th February to
 find out more about our current activities and history. Chris commented, "In
 many ways a lot has changed since clubs like Ranelagh were forming the very
 beginnings of club athletics. But still clubs and bringing people together
 to enjoy athletics remain at the very heart of our sport. Ranelagh have been
 involved in providing a great mix of training, competing and socialising to
 many people over a great many years. Their achievements and role in running
 in their community, and further afield, are a real testimony to those people
 who are part of the club today and who have done in the past. The visit was
 a great reminder of all our sport has to offer." Thanks go to Rick Jenner
 for organising the visit.

 OBITUARY (with thanks to Athletics International)
 John Ivor DISLEY CBE (b. 20 Nov 1928 Corris, Caernarfonshire and
 Merionethshire) died on February 8 at the age of 87. Coached by Geoff Dyson,
 he became Britain's first world-class steeplechaser for 15 years when he set
 four British records at 2 miles and five at 3000m, in the former taking the
 record from 10:12.6 in 1950 to 9:44.0 in 1952 and the latter from 9:18.4 in
 1950 to 8:44.2 in 1955. He smashed through the 9-minute barrier at the 1952
 Olympics, when he improved from 9:11.8 to 8:59.59 in the heats and to
 8:51.94 for the bronze medal in the final. Four years later he entered the
 Games as Britain's No.1, and nearly matched his best with 8:44.6, but with
 that he was sixth in the final won by his teammate Chris Brasher.
 Educated at Oswestry High School in Shropshire, Disley said in an interview
 in Athletics Weekly in 1951 that he had never seen an athletics track until
 he came to Loughborough College as a student in 1946; there he ran a mile in
 the Freshers Sports. Before that his running had been confined to annual
 cross-country runs and school sports. He was AAA champion in 1952, 1955 and
 1957 and won Welsh titles at 1 mile in 1949, 1951, 1954 and 1958. In 1955 he
 was voted BBC Wales Sports Personality of the Year. He ran for London AC and
 was a schoolmaster in his running days before becoming the first chief
 instructor at the CCPR's flagship mountaineering and outdoor pursuits
 centre, Plas y Brenin in Snowdonia. He helped Brasher to promote
 orienteering in Britain from the mid-1960s, and took over from him as
 chairman of the British Orienteering Federation 1970-2 and was a member of
 the International Orienteering Federation 1972-8. He was awarded the CBE in
 1979 for his work in outdoor education, and was vice-chairman of the Sports
 Council 1974-82. He was also chairman of British Olympians 1996-2002.
 Again working with Brasher, he played a vital role in setting up the London
 Marathon, first run in 1981, from their visit to the New York Marathon in
 1979. He was a director of the organisation and then chairman of the London
 Marathon Trust from 2006, remaining an active member of the London Marathon
 family throughout its 35 years. As Nick Bitel, Chief Executive of London
 Marathon Events Ltd said: "John was the architect of the original London
 Marathon route. Every runner of the race since 1981 owes him a great debt
 for the vision he realised alongside Chris Brasher. The fact that we are
 celebrating our millionth finisher this year is a testament to the
 conviction John had that this would be an event to span generations of
 runners. He will be greatly missed by all of us at the London Marathon."
 John Disley was a Ranelagh member for several years. He won the Clutton Cup
 10 miles handicap in 1978, recording an actual time of 62.47. In 1979 he led
 the Ranelagh Over 50s team of himself, Chris Brasher and Ray Dare to third
 place in the Over 50s race at the Southern Veterans XC Championships at
 Milford, despite Disley and Brasher arriving late and missing the start. The
 same trio went on to win silvers at the National event a few weeks later at
 Parliament Hill, where Disley just missed an individual bronze. Then in 1981
 Disley, Ken Powley and Don Martin took the Southern XC Over 50s team title
 at Lloyd Park Croydon, with Disley 6th this time.    

 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:.

 2XU SURREY LEAGUE FINAL RACE  Saturday 13th February in Richmond Park
 (women) and on Wimbledon Common (men)
 The final women's Surrey League race of the season was probably the biggest
 cross-country event we have ever organised in the Park. There's usually
 something of a late season drop-off in numbers taking part, and the weather
 was freezing and wet, but this didn't deter the best part of 400 runners
 from lining up. There have been problems in one or two recent League races
 with the course funnelling onto a narrow path soon after the start.
 Recording at the finish has not always been satisfactory either and we have
 seen finishers backing up some distance from the line as they queued to
 reach the single finishing funnel. We learned from these errors and our
 experienced team led by Andy Bickerstaff put together what appears to have
 been a highly successful afternoon. We're fortunate to have a course with
 plenty of space at the start and a double funnel system handled the
 finishers efficiently. Thanks also to Rob Curtis and Becky Hall who
 processed the results after the race. The League runs two divisions, but all
 run together. The results shown below list Division 1 finishing positions

 As for the sharp end of the race, it was all South London's Steph McCall.
 She simply ran away from the field and built up a lead of almost a minute
 over the second finisher, who was Division 2 runner Phoebe Law of Kingston &
 Poly. Second placer in Division 1 was McCall's clubmate Jess Chen who has
 just returned to running after an absence of some four years. This gave
 South London an excellent start in the team scoring and their final three
 counters were well enough placed to give SLH the top spot on the day. But
 their advantage over the redoubtable Clapham Chasers was only 8 points and
 barely made any impression on Clapham's overall lead. Clapham it was then
 who took the trophy, with South London in second place and Thames Hare &
 Hounds third. Hanging onto third place had been our target but on the day we
 were no match for Thames who had Olympic Marathoner Mara Yamauchi wearing
 the Thames saltire. However, we successfully held off Ful-on-Tri and the
 rest, and fourth place was a very creditable achievement. 

 The always reliable Megan de Silva led home the Ranelagh squad of 18 runners
 with another top ten finish. As this race incorporated our club women's
 championship Megan will be presented with the Hugh Jones Salver. Behind
 Megan, Julia Bailey and Suzy Whatmough fought out second spot in the team
 with skipper Becky Hall putting in a great run only a few seconds behind.
 The A team of five was closed in by the still improving Ellen Clague who
 held off Marie Synnott-Wells to win the club's over 40s championship for
 Trish's Trophy. 

 Our B team of Marie, Becky Northmore, Bonnie Morgan, Clare Fowler and Anna
 Scally were the top B team on the day, beating not only all the other Bs but
 also two A teams. Overall they placed second to the inevitable Clapham. New
 member Sarah Field and almost-new member Sandy Masters led the rest of the
 Ranelaghs including Michelle Davies who was warming up for the following
 day's Worthing Half Marathon. C and D teams are no longer officially scored,
 but statsman Ken calculates that our C team of Sarah, Sandy, Michelle,
 Hannah Doyle and Heather Martingell would have placed third in their
 category and the incomplete D team of Carol Aikin, Ann Kearey and Amy
 Sillitoe would also have been third. Stragglers, Woking and Guildford &
 Godalming filled the bottom three places overall and so drop down to
 Division 2 next year, to be replaced by Kent, Wimbledon Windmilers and Epsom
 & Ewell. In the individual classification, Megan de Silva placed third with
 13th, 9th, 13th and 10th in the four races. 

 In the under 17 / under 15 race Izzy Atkins finished 9th, less than a minute
 behind the winner.               

 Phil Killingley reports on the men's race:
 "On a wintery February day on Wimbledon Common, another tense relegation
 battle was due to unravel before the eyes of any shivering spectators hardy
 enough to brave the outdoors. With Kent having all but secured the title at
 the sharp end, just 42 points separated Ranelagh, Belgrave and Clapham, one
 of whom would need to join Guildford for the drop to Division 2. 

 Ranelagh were confident from the off as we splashed our way across the golf
 course and plunged down into the trees. Belgrave were reported 'not to have
 turned up' [in any numbers] and Clapham were missing star runner Andy Maud,
 representing his country in Belgium. 

 Our team posted a dazzlingly low 366 points, all the more astonishing for
 the strength of the league this year, and almost 200pts clear of both our
 rivals, to finish in third place for the fixture and sixth place overall in
 the league.  Jon Pepper was superb in 4th place and Carl Assmundson produced
 another excellent run for the dizzy heights of 15th. Jake Waldron made his
 first Surrey League appearance for us at a very welcome moment and was 23rd.

 Not too far behind was a blue wall of the like more normally associated with
 mobs. Eirin McDaid, Richard Gregory, Phil Killingley, Ollie Murphy and
 George Howard packed closely around the end of lap 1 and despite George's
 downhill fall and Richard's manflu we were still close by the end. The
 scoring team was made up by a surging Carl Selya-Hammer and Jordan Mungovan,
 both running excellently.  This was the hardest team to score for in a long
 time, and Steve Whitehead and Peter Haarer will rightly feel aggrieved they
 didn't manage it, despite excellent runs, as will a number of others behind

 The team repaired to the Fox and Grapes to celebrate, but it wasn't till
 later that the real drama unfolded.  It had been clear on the course that
 the Clapham/Belgrave fight for the drop would be tight, but as results came
 out and were altered here and there, it looked first like Clapham were down,
 then Belgrave, before settling down for the evening with both teams level on
 points, and Belgrave surviving on some arcane detailed countback rule.  But
 at three minutes to midnight video evidence was produced and circulated
 showing a Clapham Chaser had passed another runner just before the line.
 Clapham moved one point ahead (2128 to Belgrave's 2129).  At time of
 writing, it looks like Belgrave will be down.  Dorking and Dulwich look set
 to join us in Division 1 next season.  

 It's been another fascinating season.  At Christmas I only gave us a 40%
 chance of survival, but the muddier courses of Jan/Feb, and perhaps our love
 of mobs and other xc events has kept our team sharp and hungry.  Well done
 to you all, not just the scorers, for making it so much fun.  Particular
 thanks to team manager Alan Hedger, statistician Ken Powley and the other
 regular supporters out on the course (how can we quantify their contribution
 in points?  It must be substantial)." 

 Euan Sinclair ran well in a large field of under 13s to finish 22nd.

 Lots of photos from the men's race by Stephen Logue:

 This review of the men's and women's League season comes via Facebook from
 Belgrave's Will Cockerell:
 "As a self-confessed Surreyleagaholic I confidently submit this was the
 greatest season in the league's history, for both the men and women. The
 standard and competition between the clubs is awesome. Witness the Belgrave
 ladies winning quite comfortably in 2014 and 2015 and finishing 9th this
 time round. Yes they had some problems but no-one predicted that! As for
 Kent's men, although they won their 4th title in a row, I am quite sure that
 huge work goes in behind the scenes and with a buffer of just 45 points per
 fixture - basically a single runner, team manager Ken Pike will tell you it
 ain't getting any easier.

 And what about that relegation battle! Belgrave's men are one wounded furry
 animal, but they were never complacent, and treated the threat from Clapham
 Chasers dead seriously from the B of Bang in October. But the claret and
 gold were simply unable to solve the puzzle of how to handle Clapham's huge
 engine room. And this is precisely what the league was designed for, and why
 the scoring team of 10 is such a large number: to give the heartbeat of the
 clubs the chance to sample the atmosphere of big-time competition. And the
 big-time is no exaggeration with the clubs on Saturday providing athletes
 for all four Olympics this Century, and the winners of four editions of the
 National Cross.

 One point the difference then between staying up and going down - my
 goodness! If ever one wonders why a runner takes a seemingly innocuous duel
 with an athlete from another club so seriously, it's for moments like these.
 And incredibly, exactly the same thing happened in Div 2. Commiserations to
 West 4's gang and congrats to Walton for their last gasp smash and grab.

 The shape and feel of the Div 1 next season will look a bit strange without
 the Nagongeran Lion Paskar Owor blasting away at the front of the field and
 to be sure he is a little deflated to not be there. Paskar feels he has two
 seasons of athletics left in him of what has been a momentous career. So get
 ready for him to be back all guns blazing and taking no prisoners in
 2017-18! As for me, I shall be bereft come October, having only missed four
 Div 1 matches since Feb '98. When you see me lining up in Div 1 next season,
 be sensitive to my amnesia, and gently point me in the direction of some
 Surrey hamlet 12 miles away... Sniff, gulp, snork.

 Guildford and Belgrave will be replaced by Dorking and Dulwich next term. No
 disrespect to either of those two fine clubs, but all I can say is start
 training like mongooses now... you've earned yourself a passport to a nest
 of vipers like you never dreamed! Finally, congratulations to Kingston,
 Epsom, Fulham and Runnymede for their respective promotions to Divs 2 & 3.

 The women too enjoy a stronger league than at any time in their history.
 (You have to take care of a 2:23 marathoner to get into the top-16 there,
 after all). As their men celebrated a brilliant coup, the ladies of Clapham
 roared to a resounding league win with 120 points to spare, but a closer
 analysis shows that it was their immaculate consistency that won the day.
 They 'only' won half of the fixtures, and one of those was a squeaker, but
 it was that dominating performance in the second match when several other
 clubs had an off day, which sealed their fortune.
 The last match was amazing. More than ever before, that league is now an
 8-way slugfest. I personally think it should take the bold step and progress
 to 6 to score, as 5 is a tad 'behind the times', and for the clubs who fear
 the rise, my message would be: embrace the challenge, don't shirk it!

 Div 1 is about to have a new, extremely dangerous visitor, from the Garden
 of England. If Kent's demolition of Div 2 is anything to go by (not to
 mention the business model set by their men), then they are going to be
 tough to stop next year. Kent are joined by the Windmilers and old faves
 Epsom and Ewell, who on their day can beat anyone; as that amazing team at
 the 2012 Surrey road relay showed.

 Finally, a huge thanks to the hundreds of volunteers who give up countless
 hours of their time each season, often in awful conditions; and to three
 noble lads in Andy Robinson - are we in love with his website or what - and
 it's only going to get better, and our hard-working Hon League Secretaries
 Martin Duff and Ron Gobey."
