 Full scoreboard and race details are here:. The next race is today’s Wedding
 Day 7km and final race is the Perseverance Wimbledon Dash 5k on Sunday 13th
 August. See below for details.

 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.

 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.redhouse@stmarys.ac.uk.   

 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.

 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 Ranelagh’s
 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

 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-up’s
 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 women’s 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.
