If youre planning to run rather than help, see entry details below. SURREY LADIES LEAGUE CAMERA? One of the races many of you have offered to help at is the Surrey Ladies League on Saturday 10th February. Heres an extra request: does anyone have a video camera or similar kit we could use to record the finish of the two senior races as a backup to the normal number recording? INTER-CLUB 5 miles Saturday 20th January in Richmond Park (Roehampton Gate) This is the Bank of Englands race, starting and finishing just inside Roehampton Gate. No three-line whips for this one, but all are welcome. It incorporates a match between ourselves and Ealing Southall and Middlesex AC for the Hec Petersen Trophy. The race HQ is the Banks Sports Ground in Bank Lane, a short distance from the Park. Register on the day. SOUTH OF ENGLAND CHAMPIONSHIPS These are being held at Stanmer Park, Brighton on Saturday 27th January. Entries are closed. Good luck to all those taking part. NEXT JOB FOR THE MOB Our next mob match is at home in Richmond Park against Orion Harriers on Saturday 3rd February. We have home advantage but we can be sure that Orion will bring a sizeable mob over from Essex to try to wrest the Harold Lee Cup away from us. As ever with mob matches we need all the runners we can get the more we have on the starting line, the better our chances of hanging on to the Cup. Its 7.5 miles, starting at 2.30pm from our usual place opposite Pembroke Lodge. Register on the day at the clubhouse if possible, otherwise at the start. SURREY LEAGUES 10th FEBRUARY The fourth and final Surrey League races for men and women both take place on Saturday 10th February. The men are on Wimbledon Common, juniors at 2.30pm, seniors at 3pm. More details of the venue and course to follow. We are the hosts for the Ladies League event in Richmond Park. There are four races senior division 2 at 11am, under 15s/under 17s at 12 noon, under 13s at 12.30pm and senior division 1 at 1pm. We have been asked to keep clear of Pembroke Lodge as far as possible and so we have devised a new course starting and finishing near Sheen crossroads (close to the road leading up to White Lodge). Use public transport if you can, but If youre coming by car, please do not park at Pembroke Lodge. Sheen Gate and Roehampton Gate are the closest to the start, or there is Robin Hood Gate and the Pen Ponds car park (though the latter has no toilets). Remember there is now a 20p charge at most of the toilets in the Park. More details of the course will follow. REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN for our Half Marathon on May 6th - here: and our 10k on June 17th - here:. THAMES TOWPATH 10 miles Sunday 4th April at Chiswick This is always a popular event and is the opening race in our 2018 Road Grand Prix. Details:. HON SECRETARY Were sorry to report that our Hon Sec Wyn Williams has been obliged to stand down with immediate effect owing to ill-health. Gordon Whitson has agreed to step into Wyns shoes. QUIZ NIGHT Were hoping to hold a Quiz Night in the clubhouse on Saturday 3rd March.

THAMES EVENTS Our friends at Thames Hare & Hounds have asked us to let you know about a couple of events they organise: 1. The Dash For The Splash - 25 February 2018. Our popular 'brook-themed' 10k is back for a fifth time. Described as a 'must do race if you're in SW London', we'd love to have a good turnout from Ranelagh and there's a good team prize up for grabs this year as well. Full details and entries 2. A reminder that we run a monthly "Second Sunday 5 race" from our clubhouse. It's proving to be a popular event and last month we had around 120 runners. It's just £3 for club members to enter and is a nice low key event - to do on its own or for a bit of faced pace running as part of those marathon long runs. Full details:. Our next runs are on 11 February, 11 March and 8 April. TUESDAY NIGHT SOCIALS Dont forget that we meet for a casual drink after training on the first Tuesday of each month. Venue is upstairs at the Roebuck on Richmond Hill. All welcome.

WHATS HAPPENED *************** MIDDLESEX CROSS-COUNTRY CHAMPIONSHIPS Saturday 6th January at Berkeley Fields, Greenford Phil Aiken reports: Ever since Izzy Atkins won the Under 13 title at Alexandra Palace three years ago, the focus of our attention at the Middlesex Championships has been the junior races. 2018 would be no different. Last year, Freya Thomson was 2nd and Alice Patterson 8th in the Under 17 race, with Izzy 3rd in the Under 15s. Having moved up an age group, Izzy would be joining Freya and Alice. As would Emily Coulson. The Under 17 and Under 20 Womens races are run at the same time, the younger age group distinguished by a small 17 worn on their back. It was far easier to distinguish the blue Ranelagh shirts, well to the fore early on in the race, Freya leading not just the Ranelagh quartet, but the entire race. It was a lead she wouldnt relinquish, going on to better last years position and claim the Middlesex Under 17 title with a 14 second margin. Behind, Izzy had been contesting for 3rd, but gradually slipped back to finish one spot outside the medals. Two in, one more needed to complete the scoring team. It wasnt to be long, half a minute, a couple of places, before Alice arrived, securing the Middlesex team title to go with Freyas individual one. A strong finish saw Emily Coulson finish 11th. More success was to come Ranelaghs way with all four athletes included in the Middlesex Under 17 Womens squad for the UK Inter Counties Cross Country in Loughborough in March. Earlier, the Under 15 Girls race provided an emphatic demonstration of the junior talent assembled by Phil Kissi, Blackheath & Bromley comfortably taking the team title, placing 1st, 2nd and 4th. A little further down, in 14th, Lexi Keech was the lone Ranelagh representative. A full Middlesex complement in the Senior race was assured when Sally Bamford arrived with a quarter of an hour to spare. Putting on her number, she proclaimed she would be last, but it would take another 12 minutes after she finished for the remaining 20 athletes to finish. Leading the charge for Ranelagh was Becky Northmore, her 34th spot almost matching that of last year. But it was behind Becky, just outside the top 50, where the days real battle lay, Marianne Malam hanging on to resist Niamh Holts charge. With six in the first 16, the team honours went to London Heathside, one of only 10 clubs to complete a scoring team. But Ranelagh were one of those ten. On the mens side our only representative in the senior race was Marcus Atkins, Izzy and Gregs dad. Greg himself was only five seconds away from a medal in the under 20s race where he finished 4th. In the under 17 men Alice Pattersons brother Jacob finished 14th. After a nights rest, round two of the County Championship weekend would see the action take place amongst the vines of Denbies Wine Estate. SURREY CROSS-COUNTRY CHAMPIONSHIPS Saturday 6th January at Denbies, Dorking Phil Aiken reports on the womens race: Third in 2015. Second in 2016. First in 2017. Clearly it was Ranelaghs year. But what would 2018 bring? A look at the entry list would show some of the countys big hitters were missing: Phoebe Law, the county champion from 2017 and Katie Bingle were preparing for their Great Britain appearance at Edinburgh the following weekend, and Sophie Harris, winner of both Surrey League races this season in a barely more than 12 months of serious running, being carefully managed through the congested winter fixture list. Not that there was a lack of talent on the start line. Phoebe and Katie may have been absent, but their four remaining teammates from the Surrey team which took the National Inter Counties title last March were all in attendance. And it was these four that were to take the top positions. Sophie Cowper set off like she meant business, but was unable to sustain the pace as both Izzy Brinsden and Laura Gent first reeled her in and then forged ahead. Izzy had been part of the victorious Surrey team at the Southern Inter Counties before Christmas and her form continued into the new year, taking the county title by seven seconds from Laura. Behind Sophie in third came Steph McCall, short of training but with her exams now behind her. The first green vest of Guildford & Godalming came home fifth. Suzie Monk has been largely hidden in Loughborough these past months, but a 17:41 at Bushy Park in late November was an indication of form. Herne Hill may have seen Chloe Tighe depart for Australia, but another antipodean, Kiwi Georgie Grgec, has been recruited to take her place. She led home ex-Cambridgeshire runner, Katy Hedgethorne, who has been plying her trade with Thames Hare & Hounds since moving to London. Behind the ageless Claire Grima, Thamess Victoria Barthelmess edged out Sam Ludlow Taylor, running for Guildford & Godalming as first claim Serpentine are not affiliated to Surrey. Pre-race, Id predicted a win for Thames, with Guildford & Godalming third, but clearly this was the battle for gold. A mere seven seconds were to separate the remaining scorers from both clubs, with Guildford & Godalming triumphing by just three points. In what proved to be a relatively close battle for the team prizes, South London claimed the final spot on the podium, ahead of a resurgent Hercules Wimbledon and the ever-dependable Herne Hill Harriers. And what did 2018 bring Ranelagh? The seven entrants would have seen Ranelagh join in the team battle. But that became five starters, then three finishers and the defence of the County title fizzled out rather tamely, though Laura Blazey put in a strong showing, bagging 13th spot. Suzy Whatmough was a dozen places behind with Ria Woodfield in the top 60. The sequence starts again next year, right? Mens races: The main comment from most runners and officials was that it was ****** cold! A freezing wind direct from the Arctic swept across the shelterless slopes of Denbies Vineyard. The course had been amended slightly since the last championships here in order to omit dangerous corners but it still provided a stern test to the runners, who at least had the opportunity to warm up a bit during their races. The conditions suited some. In the senior mens race Nick Impey led the way for Ranelagh and took some impressive scalps on his way to 26th place. Steve Whitehead returned from injury with 48th and there was another good performance from Jonathan Smith in 51st. Newcomer Ross McDonald, Richard Kimber and Dave Lawley completed the scoring six. We finished 8th team. We were well represented in the junior events by Tom Armstrong and Euan Sinclair in the Under 15 boys, and Finlay Sinclair in the Under 13s. SURREY LADIES LEAGUE DIVISION 1 Saturday 13th January on Wimbledon Common Womens team manager Phil Aikens report: The Surrey League moves ever closer to Richmond Park. Thames, Hercules and the Windmilers have staged a number of races over the years but this is the first time I can recall Belgrave playing host, certainly to one of the 5 mile league races. And the significance lies in the course. Aside from the loop around the windmill, it is absolutely flat and on a good surface. More trail running than cross country, this has been the scene of my fastest cross country races. A voice at the end proclaimed it boring, complaining about the absence of mud. It was certainly a very different course to that experienced at Dorking less than a week before. Sophie Harris had won the opening two races and, much to Belgravian Will Cockerells excitement on the Surrey League facebook page, was attempting to become the first woman for 30 years to win the first three races of the season. The result was never in doubt, Sophie finishing over a minute clear of second place. In the previous two races, that was Claphams Steph Davis. Today it would again be a Clapham Chaser, second claimer Lucy Reid. Lucy still retains her Kent eligibility and was second in the Kent championships a week ago. Reprising their close battle from Denbies, Herne Hills Georgie Grgec edged out Katy Hegethorne of Thames. With Clapham and Thames tied at the top of the table, the call went out for reinforcements. For Thames Hare & Hounds, who host the varsity Cross Country race, that means utilising Hare & Hounds connections at both Oxford and Cambridge, Sarah Lovewell trailed her fellow former Cambridge student over the line but, as both are second claim, Sarah was relegated to the B team. Saron Haileselase found conditions to her liking, finishing strongly to claim her highest ever finishing position. In contrast, Izzy Brinsden was more at home at Denbies. Her 7th place finish today wont alter the fact that shes the County champion. Claire Grima added another top 10 finish to her collection, before it became Oxfords turn to provide another Thames finisher, Bethanie Murray. Lucie Custance struck back for Clapham but current Cambridge student Ruby Woolfe and former Edinburgh Hare & Hound Victoria Barthelmess gave Thames another two scorers. On the day, Thames would triumph with a not inconsiderable lead of 28 points going into the final fixture. Laura Blazey was again the first Ranelagh home, pushed down to 18th by the top-of-the-table shenanigans being fought out in front. She was almost pushed down another another spot by sometime-training partner, Eileen Brandley of Hercules, but prevailed by four seconds. Cordy Parker, showing Ranelagh can also play the second claim card, was half a minute back in 23rd, claiming the scalp of Mara Yamauchi in the process, though its fair to say that Mara isnt in 2:23 marathon shape these days. A former Oxford student, there are no prizes for guessing who Mara ran for. Suzy Whatmough, 33rd, and Becky Curtis-Hall, 48th, and Fanny Vein, 65th, completed the scoring A team. Jo Billings made a welcome return from Achilles issues. Julia Bailey ducked under 100 by the narrowest of margins, Becky Northmore, Bonnie Morgan and Wiebke Kortum brought the B team home in 22nd (7th among B teams). Eight more Ranelagh vests were to cross the line, led by Eugénie McLachlan. Lara Werrett followed before Niamh Holt well and truly turned the tables on Marianne Malam after their Middlesex battle the week before. Rachel Revett, Clare Day and Karen Harbert, appearing without their daughters for the first time, and Tamsin Burland completed the Ranelagh effort. Unlike Thames and Clapham, the other clubs were more solid than strong, an exception being Hercules, who were neither. Ranelaghs points total continues to creep up, but was still good for 6th on the day, and just enough to hold onto 5th overall. With a 56 point cushion, South London should hold off Belgrave for third, but the next four Belgrave, Ranelagh, Herne Hill and Hercules are separated by just 45 points. At the bottom there is an intriguing six-team battle for survival in Division 1, with 151 points separating the bottom six. There was another Guildford & Godalming procession in Division 2. Hannah Irwin matched Sophie Harriss feat of three wins out of three as the Gs placed five in the first six. With a total after three races of just 54 points, promotion is all but assured, there being a gap of 545 points back to fourth place. The real question is, with a couple of runners missing, can they finish the season with less than 100 points. Well find out in Richmond Park on February 10th. And if anyone can spare some time that day to help out, it will be greatly appreciated. In the combined U17 and U15 race Izzy, Emily and Lexi all ran well in the top third of the field. SURREY LEAGUE DIVISION 1 Saturday 13th January at Coulsdon Phil Killingley reports: It always feels chillier on top of Farthing Downs - even with relatively mild temperatures the wind kept us from feeling comfortable at the start. Comfort levels went downhill from there on as we raced off on the famous Coulsdon Camber into the wind. Richard Gregory was our first scorer in 12th, with an excellent effort that saw an age graded pb of 84.6%. Carl Assmundson had a pleasing run to come 21st (pb also of 80.2%) - he went out hard and after 3km passed an unfit Jon Pepper (35th), which provided motivation not to look back. Jon provided motivation for Nick Impey too (pb 81.2%), who nearly snaffled him on the line. In 36th Nick benefited from remembering his spikes this time. Jordan Mungovan was 5th home in 61st (pb 77.2%), 50 seconds later - a great result - with Carl Selya Hammer, Marc Leyshon and Peter Haarer securing 70th, 76th and 77th, not long after. Carl pb'ed too with 79.3%, surviving a fast start and a twisted spike (really!). Then a well-paced Ted Mockett stormed through in 82nd and was nearly caught by Steve Whitehead in 83rd to finish off the scoring as anchorman extraordinaire - well returned after a longish autumn injury. I can testify to Steve's barnstorming hill climbs - he was going about twice my pace up the long one! There was an upsetting of the old order, with Eirin McDaid and Captain Killingley failing to make the scoring ten for the first time ever. Excellent runs meant that the B team packed in behind them - on form Jon Smith was 6 seconds behind Phil - 13th scorer a massive improvement on his 20th last time. A special mention also for David Ready for his superb run (71.9% pb). Dave Lawley was superb with an age graded 76.1% pb. Marc Snaith snatched anchorman for the Bs, appearing to slow significantly in the final stages to ensure the trophy was his... Phil adds: Heres Jon Smith's report from the back of the pack (actually not, as he was 6 seconds behind me...) "The B teamers were tightly packed as they made their way up the long cambering hill for the first time. Marc Snaith, picking up where he left off at Mitcham, was off to a flyer and on Captain Phils tail. Meanwhile Dave Lawley, Dave Ready, James Whistler, Al Whatmough and Mark Herbert were all no doubt slightly shocked to find themselves running along with Eirin, who looked like he was out for a jog with his ladies football team. Graham Brook was also well in the mix at this point whilst Jonathan Smith and Rick Jenner had started at a slightly more cautious pace. On the back straight Al, already struggling with dodgy shins, managed to find an unfortunate pot hole which slowed him up a little. By subsequent accounts (just one account really) Eirins slow pace was because he had done something similar. To prove it he provided a photo after the race suggesting his ankle had swollen up and gone red. This looked suspiciously like a red skittle had fallen into his sock and melted. As the second lap geared up Marcs quick start started to catch up with him and he lost ground on Phil. Meanwhile Graham had gone off in pursuit of the captain. Jonathan had started moving up through the field and took Dave with him, but not before a Herne Hill Harrier had stacked it and nearly taken both of them out in one go. As they went up the hill for the second time Marc was caught and Graham was in their sights. By this point Eirin had already started to make his move and was now trying to hunt down the A Team scorers. Further back Herbie and Dave R could see Snaithy 50 metres ahead and were sat in a pack of 4-5 runners that included David Grima of Hercules, Jimmy Whistler wasnt too far back and Rick had overtaken Al. Rick and Jimmy then proceeded to have a battle royale, Rick taking Jimmy in the woods before Jimmy came back and took him again in the open. On the back straight Jon caught Graham and was perplexed to see that the next person in the firing line was Phil. He made a huge effort to get close enough for a rare scalp but Phil was too strong down the finishing straight. Rick and Jimmy managed to overtake Marc. Dave L got right on to Grahams heels but the big finish would come from the other David, who decided to take on one of the clubs best sprint finishers in the form of Herbie and managed to pull it off. Meanwhile Rick managed to get himself ahead of Marc who held on to secure the B team anchorman trophy ahead of Al. A cracking race with only around 90 seconds separating 11th to 20th." Phil K again: For other teams, Claphams Andy Maud is reportedly unfit but it didnt stop him winning here. Kent pipped Hercules to the match win, and are now just 12 points behind Hercules with a race to go. Thames were next and Ranelagh in fourth. That should have been enough to see us clear of relegation but unfortunately Clapham absolutely nailed it and were only 4 points behind us in 5th. It was Belgrave and SLH who slipped up, and so we leapfrog the latter and get much closer to the former. (Herne Hill also tanked, but they had done better in previous fixtures) So it'll go down to the wire, with 167 points separating 5th to 8th. This is not dissimilar to 2014 when the exact same four clubs were fighting to see who got the last relegation spot, that time only 35 points apart. In the B teams table, we had a great result, but Hercules pulled it out with a really strong A and B team, so we slip to third. Holding onto 3rd would be a good result for the last fixture, with Clapham and then Thames not far behind. A big watch-out as well for next year. Guildford and Godalming are FLYING at the top of Div 2, having won 2 fixtures with fewer than 100 points. They look to defy the usual status of promotees as yo-yo clubs. Thanks as ever to race legends Ken and Alan, and also to our hardy supporters shouting us on. Another great result. Euan and Finlay Sinclair ran well once again in the junior race. FRANCKEISS CUP RUNNERS ROWING RACE Sunday 14th January at The Skiff Club, Teddington We had hoped to put out a crew to contest the Franckeiss Cup this year, but unluckily injuries prevented it. The trophy was donated back in 1929 by Ranelagh member R.H. Franckeiss. Paul Gregory reports: The annual races were held between 26.2 RRC, Hercules Wimbledon AC, The Stragglers, Thames Hare and Hounds and Wimbledon Windmilers, over a short sprint course, the length of Trowlock Island. Hercules Wimbledon retained the Franckeiss Cup for the mens doubles in a very close race with Thames Hare and Hounds until the final moments, and also regained the mixed doubles. 26.2 RRC retained the ladies doubles cup contesting the race with the new club taking part, Wimbledon Windmilers. That club entered four crews in mens, ladies and mixed doubles, and were a close second in three heats and finals, in one of which was set the fastest time of the day. This was a great result for crews who had not raced before in Thames skiffs. Splendid close racing, enjoyed by all taking part.
