Thames Hare and Hounds are coming to Richmond Park on 8th October in mid-rutting season for the first mob of the year. Put on your antlers and join us! Fast and slow, young and old, men and women, all are welcome. Please also remember (remember) to stick 5th November in your diaries for the away Orion fixture in Epping Forest. Our spy in their camp suggests this represents the biggest risk to our unbeaten run. There will certainly be fireworks." FISH and CHIP SUPPER Following our mob match against Thames we will be hosting them to a fish and chip supper in the clubhouse. All are welcome. 6.30pm start. Price £10 per head to include beer and wine. Book your place with Andy Hayward email@example.com . FIXTURE LIST Our full winter fixture list is now available on our website here:. There are printed copies at the clubhouse. Also at the clubhouse are copies of the latest Ranelagh Harriers Gazette, covering the twelve months up to spring 2016. Please help yourself to a copy.

MARSHALLING This year we're asking all active members to volunteer to marshal at least one home race in Richmond Park during the season. To volunteer, please contact our Chief Race Official Andy Bickerstaff firstname.lastname@example.org . RIVER THAMES HALF MARATHON Sunday 30th October Roy Reeder writes: "October is a very busy month for marshalling with home events in Richmond Park almost every weekend. However, if anyone could spare some time to marshal at an additional event, the River Thames Half Marathon on 30th October, for which I'm Race Director, I'd be very grateful. Most of the help is needed in and around the start at Walton Bridge but I also need volunteers around Molesey. For each volunteer, I'm happy to donate £25 to the charity of your choice or give you a free entry for next year. The race has proved to be very popular: in 2014, the race generated £3500 for charity, last year it generated £3700. This year, with a record number of entries, it looks like we might even top £5000! To volunteer or for more details email me at email@example.com. Thanks."

WHAT'S HAPPENED *************** SOUTH OF ENGLAND ROAD RELAYS Sunday 25th September at Bedford Autodrome It was good to see Estelle Damant back in action in her first serious race this year. She ran well on the opening stage to come home 21st in a time of 17.15 for the 4.5km lap. Charlie Hyde, Becky Curtis-Hall and Natalie Thomas brought the team home in a very respectable 33rd place. Fastest Ranelagh time though was from newcomer Nichola Jackson, who ran the opening stage for an incomplete B team in an outstanding 16.21. Nichola's change of first-claim was not approved in time for her to run in our A team. With many popular road races also on this weekend we did not field a team in the men's race, but Rob Curtis ran the opening 6km stage in 27.14 finishing 70th.
