The next race is todays Wedding Day 7km and final race is the Perseverance Wimbledon Dash 5k on Sunday 13th August. See below for details. SURREY ROAD LEAGUE Six of the seven League events have now been completed up to the Elmbridge 10k- and our wome's team holds a healthy lead over Woking and London City, with Guildford and Godalming still lurking in the background. It looks as if Ranelagh should be home and dry, but it could still be a close-run thing. For the men i's even closer. Ranelagh and Reigate Priory are level on points and it will all come down to a shoot-out at the last race, which is the Perseverance Wimbledon Dash 5k. In the individual competitions Laura Blazey and Suzy Whatmough look set to finish 2nd and 3rd in the Senior Women class. Marie Synnott-Wells is joint top of the W45 category, but is likely to be pushed back at the last race. Nick Impey is in 2nd place in the Senior Men, but is also in danger of being overtaken, amongst others by Jake Waldron. Conversely, Seiko Angelo is currently 5th in the M50s but could move up to a podium place. Full scoreboard. WEDDING DAY 7km Friday 28th July in Bushy Park 7.30pm start.

MSc CANDIDATE Lucy Redhouse of St Mar's University writes: "I am looking to recruit adult track & field trainers for a study that involves core cross-sectional thickness and function as I am studying for a Masters in Sports Rehabilitation at St Mary's University in Twickenham. The aim of this study is to compare the effects of athletic training versus free weight strength training on cross-sectional thickness and function of three core muscles, the transverse abdominis (TA), internal oblique (IO) and external oblique (EO) using diagnostic ultrasound. Evidence suggests that use of transverse abdominis is of greater significance for protection against back pain than the internal oblique or external oblique and each participant has the potential to find out information about their core in this respect. If successful the participant will be required to come into university and be scanned under ultrasound on one occasion for approx 1 hour or for approx 15 minutes on two occasions. I would very much appreciate your help if possible within the next three weeks or so. E-mail: Lucy.firstname.lastname@example.org. RAY DARE Some older members will remember Ray Dare who was a Ranelagh member for several years from the late 1970s onwards. Cycling was Ra's first love, and this year saw him complete 65 years of membership of the Kingston Phoenix Road Club. As a runner he enjoyed some success and was a member of the Ranelagh team that won silver medals in the National Veterans Over 50 Championships in 1979. His illustrious team mates on that occasion were Messrs Disley and Brasher, soon to be founders of the London Marathon! Ray subsequently ran the London several times and his 3:49 clocking at the age of 70 put him in 4th place in the 70-75 class. At the age of 91 he was still chasing cycling records and it was while aiming for a best 10 miles time by an Over 90 last week that he was tragically killed after being hit from behind by a van. We extend our condolences to his wife Beryl and family. FACEBOOK Follow Ranelagh on Facebook.

WHA'S HAPPENED *************** ELMORE 7 miles Saturday 15th July at Chipstead This is a scenic run through country lanes starting and finishing at the Chipstead Flower Show. No matter that the lanes are undulating and narrow in places, and that the weather is always hot - everyone seems to enjoy it. Epso's Ollie Garrod was the clear winner, cementing his position at the top of the Surrey League Senior Me's scoreboard. Jake Waldron was Ranelaghs leading man in 3rd place and behind Jake came the fast-improving Nick Impey in 6th. Seiko Angelo ran well as our third finisher and closed in our League team in second place behind our rivals for the title Reigate Priory. Chris Bundhun and Al Whatmough came in together next, with Mark Herbert not far behind and then Mike Morris and returning from injury Eirin McDaid. In the wome's race, Laura Blazey finished 4th and Becky Curtis-Hall set a course PB in 11th. Marie Synnott-Wells was our next finisher, 6th in the W45 category, and she closed in the Surrey League team in 3rd place. Suzy Whatmough was not far behind Marie and Charlie Hyde led the rest of our team. ELMBRIDGE 10km Sunday 23rd July There were PBs galore as runners took advantage of good conditions and a flat course. Amongst the men Jake Waldron and Nick Impey finished 3rd and 6th respectively for the second week in succession and Carl Seya-Hammer closed in the team in 11th place. This won us the 3-to-score team for the Surrey Road League. On top of that, there were also six-to-score team prizes, and Ted Mockett, Chris Bundhun and Seiko Angelo weighed in to make sure they came our way too. Jake looks set to take the League runner-ups spot provided he runs the final League race on 13th August. Seiko was 2nd over 50 home, also echoing his previous wee's run. Laura Blazey sneaked inside 40 minutes to lead our womens team and behind her Becky Curtis-Hall edged a few seconds closer to that elusive barrier. Suzy Whatmough- another PB- closed in our League team into the top spot but in the six to score- with Ria Woodfield, Clare Fowler and Marie Synnott-Wells- they had to settle for second. WASDALE HORSESHOE FELL RACE Saturday 8th July in Cumbria After 21 miles, over 9,000 feet of climbing and nearly five hours of running it came down to a desperate race for the line for the wome's winner. By an agonising margin of just two seconds Nic Jackson was pushed into second place by Anna Lupton of Black Combe Runners. Her's some footage of the race, Nic (in her Preston fell-running colours) finishing at about 11.30: Video:. Sadly for us Nic is shortly to move to live and work in Loughborough, and we send her all our best wishes for the future.
