Can we beat them away for the second time in a row, following our 30 year win drought, and in so doing extend our winning streak in mobs to 13 matches? This promises to be an epic fixture over a brilliant cross-country course. The race starts at 2.30pm nearby to Orion's clubhouse. It is 7.5 miles and involves lots of hills. However many of you will be devastated to learn that it won't be as muddy as in previous years unless there are significant cloudbursts before then. Some stretches are on road, so I will be wearing fell shoes or short spikes. If you only have spikes, I think the best option is therefore not to go too long, but still better having some grip than going for road trainers. Course map will be available on the day, though not very useful as it's a twisty turny forest circuit - but always well marked. If you're running behind because of public transport or severe traffic problems, there may be a chance that the start could be delayed, so phone Phil on 07766 667012. Remember the more runners we have, the better our chances of success. All welcome - male, female, young, old, fast, slow. Remember, remember the fifth of November!

WHAT'S HAPPENED *************** TORONTO WATERFRONT MARATHON Sunday 16th October From Canadian Running: "Ed Whitlock, 85, absolutely destroyed the men's 85 to 89 world record on Sunday at the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon. Ed defied expectations and ran a 3:56 marathon, breaking the men's 85-89 world record by more than 30 minutes. The 85-year-old Milton, Ontario resident ran in a 30-year-old singlet and 15-year-old Brooks shoes. He ran 3:56:33 after going through the halfway mark at 1:54:34. He says that he went out a bit too hard but still maintained an overall average pace of 5:36 per kilometre throughout the 42.2K race. The previous world record was 4:34:55, set in 2004, according to the Association of Road Racing Statisticians. It's being reported that his age-graded time equates to a 2:08 for the senior men's marathon." Ed adds: "The reason I was not wearing the Ranelagh vest was that it did not conform to IAAF standards regarding size of print, I can't believe that IAAF is really interested in what I wear , but formally I was an elite athlete and thought I had better comply just to be safe and not cause any possible problem for the organizers." Runner's World says: "How does Whitlock do it? That remains a mystery. And perhaps we are all the better for simply acknowledging the wonderment of Ed Whitlock without trying to analyze and understand. In interviews, he says things like: 'I don't have a manager. I don't have a coach. I don't have a trainer. I don't take any supplements. I don't accept any commercial endorsements.' No, he just runs slowly, for three to four hours a day, around a cemetery a little more than 100 meters from his front door. 'I don't follow what typical coaches say about serious runners,' he told Runner's World in 2010. 'I'm not sufficiently organized or ambitious to do all the things you're supposed to do if you're serious. The more time you spend fiddle-diddling with this and that, the less time there is to run or waste time in other ways'." SURREY LADIES LEAGUE DIVISION 1 Saturday 15th October in Nonsuch Park Phil Aiken reports: "After a summer of Surrey Road League domination the opening fixture of the Surrey Cross Country League was a sobering reality check. Surrey's leading runners hibernate during the summer, re-emerging as the days shorten and the nights draw in. It is important to field a good quota of leading runners but, despite having enough runners to complete three full teams, there weren't enough where it mattered. As at the opening fixture last year, Victoria Elbourne came home in 114th position. Then, she closed out the B team. Here it was the A team. There were many and varied reasons for absence - some unavoidable, some self-inflicted - though bizarre gardening accidents and spontaneous combustion weren't among them. On the plus side, Megan de Silva was three places higher than in the corresponding fixture last year. Suzy Whatmough showed her improvement by finishing 21 places higher. Becky Northmore, despite a recent spell out through injury, gained 16. There were five debutantes, including a trio of over 60s and the team had representation from most of the Tuesday training groups. There was even a trio of U15s, despite the Kennedy twins relocating to Oxford, with Izzy Atkins showing strongly, as ever, and Lexi Keech making a promising debut. But, at the end of the day, it's the scores on the doors that matter and points are awarded for finishing positions, nothing else. Before the start I had predicted 9th or 10th place, with 225. Had I been talking about Epsom & Ewell or West 4, I would have been quids in at the bookies. As it was, I was only one place out, but a whopping 120 points further back. The top three teams scored less. Perhaps it was meant to be though. The second fixture needs Ranelagh to show its true colours and where better to do it than Mitcham Common. The last time a Surrey League was contested there, four years ago, it was the setting for the Ranelagh women's team's nadir, a four person showing that all but sealed relegation by itself. How we look forward to consigning that ignominious day to history." 1 Amy Clements (Kent) 22.41 2 Steph McCall (SLH) 22.46 3 Paula Rutherford (FoT) 23.07 10 Megan de Silva 23.57 45 Suzy Whatmough 26.00 86 Julia Bailey 27.30 91 Wiebke Kortum 27.34 114 Victoria Elbourne 28.37 116 Anna Scally 28.41 132 Rebecca Northmore 29.34 139 Sonia Rowland 29.50 153 Rachel Revett 30.37 170 Hannah Doyle 31.20 187 Claire Warner 32.54 207 Susan Seale 35.04 221 Jackie Dunkley 39.25 223 Bronwen Northmore 43.01 224 Wendy Fisher 43.05 Teams (5 to score - A teams only) B Teams (5 to score) 1 South London Harriers 98 1 South London Harriers B 320 2 Clapham Chasers 104 2 Herne Hill Harriers B 336 3 Guildford & Godalming AC 114 3 Ful On Tri B 366 4 Belgrave Harriers 126 12 Ranelagh Harriers B 710 5 Herne Hill Harriers 145 6 Ful On Tri 145 7 Dulwich Runners 199 8 Thames Hare & Hounds 204 9 Epsom & Ewell Harriers 224 10 West 4 Harriers 225 11 Ranelagh Harriers 346 12 Reigate Priory AC 392 13 Kent AC 448 14 Wimbledon Windmilers 530 15 Dorking & Mole Valley AC 614 Under 17 / Under 15 1 C Alexander (HHH) 16.40 15 Izzy Atkins 19.25 22 Lexi Keech 20.14 60 Frida Roper 24.17 Teams (4 to score) 1 Reigate Priory AC 33 2 Herne Hill Harriers 42 3 Guildford & Godalming AC 78 6 Ranelagh Harriers 115 2XU SURREY LEAGUE DIVISION 1 Saturday 15th October in Richmond Park Phil Killingley reports: "With the sun beating down on Sidmouth Wood, we were grateful for a later than usual 4pm start to accommodate a wedding at Pembroke Lodge. The course was as solid as it had been for the mob the week before and many chose to wear road racing shoes instead of spikes. It was great to see the juniors out in stronger force than we have seen them in years - seven made it out for the combined U13/15/17 race and here's hoping this will be the start of something big. We were one short of a full team of four in the U15/U17 category but Greg Atkins, Zach Brewin and Luke Maguire all ran well to finish in 15th spot. We were able to field the requisite four in the U13 class and Euan Sinclair, Noah Heron-Brett, Finlay Sinclair and Euan Lorimer all performed creditably to finish 9th. Despite the late loss of Eirin McDaid to calf trouble the seniors were optimistic, with Ralph Street jetting in from Oslo the morning of the race. The last time he and Jon Pepper raced together in the Surrey League they were third and fifth respectively and they went one better here with a great display of distance running: fourth and third. The race victory went to Kevin Quinn of SLH, taking advantage of Belgrave's absence (Phil Wicks and Paskar Owor bagged a 1-2 as Belgrave took apart the competition in Division 2) to record his first win in 20 years of trying. Ranelagh filled in well - Jackson Creegan ran a great second lap to climb to 23rd, with Richard Gregory in 27th despite not being quite on top of his game. Carl Assmundson wasn't as fit as his top 20 finishes last year but managed an excellent 34th with Jake Waldron (third and therefore non-scoring second claimer), Phil Killingley, Nick Impey and Ian Kenton providing a mini Blue Wave in the 40s. Peter Haarer and Jordan Mungovan stormed in nearly neck and neck to close the scoring. I suspect Jordan finished tenth scorer deliberately. He had won the anchorman trophy for 10th and last scorer in the final race of last season and had forgotten to bring it along. Winning it back was his only way out! SLH had a phenomenal race - winning easily and packing 7 in the top 16. Hard to believe they were in a relegation dogfight three seasons back. Hercules and Kent followed and Ranelagh secured a superb fourth place, our 345 points beating the 366 that easily secured us a third place last season, and establishing a sizeable gap on Herne Hill and Thames. Strange to think we are 300 points ahead of Clapham Chasers, a club that were leading us in the league after two races last year. Newly promoted Dulwich and Dorking were even further behind. Former captain Marc Snaith's prediction of 6th this season could be conservative!" CABBAGE PATCH 10 miles Sunday 16th October at Twickenham Unusually, the Cabbage Patch 10 was on the same weekend this year as the opening Surrey League races. With almost 50 club members taking part in the women's and men's leagues on Saturday, it was to be expected that our numbers would be down a little for Sunday's 10 miler. Nevertheless 52 Ranelaghs were amongst the mighty throng setting off in Twickenham, giving us an excellent weekend mob of about one hundred. Well, just under a hundred in fact, as a few brave souls turned out in both. Mark Herbert was our leading runner and he was delighted to record 59.15. He wrote on Facebook: "Fantastic day racing this morning!!! Finally broke 60 minutes over 10 miles at the Cabbage Patch in 59:15, it's a 1 minute 12 second pb. Nick Impey, thank you for running alongside me...superstar!!! Also to all the marshals and support." Nick paced Mark most of the way and finished just a few seconds behind. There were substantial pbs also for our next three home, Rick Jenner, Michael Everard and David Ready, though Rick might have been frustrated to finish on 60 minutes dead rather than 59.59! Our leading woman, and another pb setter, was Laura Blazey who ran 68.00. Michelle Beaumont finished in 70.02, just a few seconds outside her best, but Wiebke Kortum's 74.42 was a pb despite having run the League race the day before. And right behind Wiebke, with yet another pb, was Heather Martingell. Personal bests abounded throughout the field despite wet and windy conditions, and apologies for not being able to identify them all individually. But congratulations to you all! SOUTH OF ENGLAND AA CROSS-COUNTY RELAY CHAMPIONSHIPS Saturday 22nd October at Wormwood Scrubs Phil Aiken reports: "After debuting at these championships last year with two teams, Ranelagh's women returned to Wormwood Scrubs in greater numbers, thanks to a full complement of three in the U15 Girls' race. Lexi Keech, a late, team-saving recruit, got the ball rolling, handing over to Josie Kearey with Ranelagh in the top half. Because of other commitments, Josie is rarely able to compete, but she took advantage of half term to don the Ranelagh vest. Though dropping several places, she finished with a big smile. Welcome to the team, Josie! Reigning Middlesex U15 champion Izzy Atkins returned to the scene of her success in January and a gutsy run that saw her take back a couple of places and left her agonisingly within touching distance of a clutch of clubs just ahead. The results sheet will show a finishing position of 29th, but will fail to note that this was achieved against athletics clubs with established junior sections. Two weeks before, new recruit Nichola Jackson had tackled the Langdale Horseshoe fell race, a half marathon with over 4,500 feet of climbing. Wormwood Scrubs was somewhat different, the 3 km course offering a height gain more in the region of 4.5 feet. Not her favoured terrain, then. Starting strongly, she had ceded some ground to Newbury's Sophie Crumly by the time the course disappeared behind trees, next to the railway line. By the end of the leg, the distance had stretched to 12 seconds, with Heathside's Ella Waldman splitting the pair. Only Thames Valley's Tracy Barlow, proving there's life after Coronation Street, and Luton's Rosie Keane were to beat the times of this trio. Nic handed over to Suzy Whatmough for leg 2. Suffering with a cold, she inevitably ceded a few places, but Ranelagh remained in the top half dozen. Laura Blazey, on her competitive cross country debut, closed out the A team, losing a couple of spots to a re-invigorated Newbury and a rampaging Rosie Keane. But Harrow emulated Bracknell from last year, sitting high after two legs but without anyone to complete the job. So Ranelagh finished 7th, in the same spot as last year. However, this year's time of 38:08 would have been good enough for a bronze twelve months ago. A sign of better conditions, to be fair, but also of a better quality field. Like last year, there was a Ranelagh B team. Becky Northmore registered an improvement of 46 seconds on the opening leg, handing over to Charlie Hyde on leg 2. Charlie has been an enthusiastic relay runner this autumn, having already notched up Surrey and South of England Road Relay performances at Wimbledon and Bedford. Charlie finished the leg as she started, in 26th place. The last leg was to be Ann Kearey's and, despite her best endeavours, she was unable to hold off the stampede that marked the opening leg of the men's race. Though she did lift the B team three places. Unlike last year, the was a Ranelagh C team. Or, rather, there was an opening leg of a C team, the honour belonging to Ellie Lawley. Post-race, it was time for stand-in skipper Becky (it's a requirement) to demonstrate the essential skills of captaincy by providing some lemon drizzle cake. The Team Manager required a second slice. I think that meant she passed the test."

On paper we had a really strong entry but injuries and other commitments gradually whittled away to leave a core of 16 runners who ran in the two races. First the Women's Masters combined with the over 60 men on a 6k course; with the second race for men over 40 and 50 on a 10k course. Medals were hard to come by but we won a few; had a lot of near misses and even had medals taken away on a recount! Overall though we had lots of fun running on a lovely Saturday afternoon. As ever many thanks to the organisers from Surrey Athletics supported by the many volunteers from Ranelagh Harriers. In the first race Abi Weeds was first Ranelagh home but was 4th in the W35 age category and chasing her home was Chris Owens who won our first medal (silver in the M60). Next was Wiebke Kortum (5th M45), followed by Mike Peace (4th M65) and then Hannah Doyle (12th W40). Sonia Rowland was running well on the first lap when a Hercules Wimbledon runner twisted her ankle and fell just in front of her. Sonia ran back to the nearest marshal to raise the alarm before continuing the race. Happily, Sonia's good deed did not cost her a medal as she still finished in the bronze medal position despite the loss of a good two minutes. Then the ever-young Allan Lang was 2nd M75 and our final finisher was Corinne Bishop (6th W60) who decided to give everyone a good 10 minutes or so start! We had enough runners to form teams only in the W45 and M60 categories and again we were just outside the medals in 4th place in both. Medals were even harder to come by in the M40/M50 race. Trevor Maguire was first home but was 4th in M50. Next though John Shaw had a strong race to finish 3rd in M55. Good hard racing continued as Duncan Mallison (17th M40), Stewart Anderson (18th M45), Paul Rider (18th M50), Simon Hedger (11th M55 and great to have him back running after a period of serious illness), with Rob Curtis (22nd M45) finishing off our M40/45 team (7th team). The M50/55 team of Trevor, John and Paul were awarded bronze medals but it looks like we will have to hand them back as the results now show 4th by a point - typical finishing position for the day!" This was our fourth home fixture in as many weeks, which has put something of a strain on our chief race official Andy Bickerstaff. As he now puts his feet up for a few weeks we'll take the opportunity to thank him and his team of marshals and officials for all their hard work. These sentiments were echoed by the Surrey Athletics race director Rob Russell who wrote: "I would like to thank everyone who helped before and during the Masters Champs. My task was made ridiculously easy due to everyone's help. I would particularly like to thank Andy and his team of marshals who did an outstanding job getting the course ready and ensuring every athlete went the right way. Andy, please pass on my thanks to your team."
