ATTENTION PLEASE **************** NEXT JOB FOR THE MOB Our first mob match of the season will be at home to Orion Harriers on Saturday 24th October. Orion, above all the other mob match clubs, will be out to avenge our defeat of them last year. We can expect large numbers of Orion men and women to make the trip over from their Epping Forest home, and we'll have to meet them with equally large numbers to stand a chance. If we can outnumber them, so much the better. The more of us there are, the better our chances. We need absolutely everyone to turn out if you possibly can. MOB MATCH COMMEMORATIVE T-SHIRTS Many of the pre-ordered t-shirts were collected and paid for at the Thomas Cup or Page Cup races, but if you haven't picked yours up yet please try to catch Michele Gibson or Andy Hayward at the clubhouse. Please pay on receipt or send a cheque for £20 payable to Ranelagh Harriers to 79 Thames Side, Staines, TW18 2HF. Unclaimed t-shirts will shortly be sold off. SURREY LEAGUES Our men's and women's teams both start their Surrey League Division 1 campaigns on Saturday 10th October.

LONDON MARATHON For the ninth successive year the London Marathon has set a new world record for an annual single day charity fundraising event. Runners in the 2015 event raised £54.1 million for charity, the total since the race was founded in 1981 now standing at more than £770 million. A record number of 247,069 (42% of them women) applied for the 2016 race on April 24. FUNDING FOR JUNIOR HANDICAP Roy Reeder writes: "The Stragglers host a junior handicap each month in the summer which is enjoyed by 60-80 children, a large number of whom are members of Ranelagh Harriers. Stragglers have applied to the Skipton Building Society for a £500 Grassroots Giving grant. They've made it through the first stage and it's now down to a public vote! To vote, all you need to do is click here: and enter your email address at the bottom of the page. It takes less than one minute, so please vote now! Thanks." CHRISTMAS PARTY All right, I know Christmas is a long way away still, but it will as usual be upon us before we know where we are. So our Social Secretaries Michele and Andy have already reserved the venue for our Christmas Party and are taking bookings. We're trying a new venue this year, the Lass O'Richmond Hill at the top of Queen's Road. It's less expensive than our previous venue - the cost is £40 to include a three-course dinner, wine, a disc jockey and dancing. There is a limit of 80 people, so get your booking in early. E-mail Michele Gibson email@example.com or add your name to the list in the clubhouse, where you will also find a menu. THURSDAY NIGHT TRACK TRAINING AT OSTERLEY The club is continuing to subsidise track sessions on Thursday evenings at the Osterley track. All groups and all abilities are welcome.

WHAT'S HAPPENED *************** SOUTH OF ENGLAND AA ROAD RELAY CHAMPIONSHIPS Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th September at Rushmoor Arena, Aldershot. The site of the former Army display ground at Rushmoor has been the venue for the SEAA Road Relays for many years and also hosted the Fleet Half Marathon for a while. In many ways, it is a perfect venue - easily accessible from the motorway network, plenty of parking and a good testing traffic-free course which allows active spectators to see the runners several times per lap. Sadly, since the venue has been more or less abandoned by the Army it crumbles away a little more each year. I'm told that the Aldershot club often puts together a work party on the Friday prior to the races in order to effect emergency repairs to the worst potholes, but by the next year the holes are back again. With so much history attached to this course it would be a shame to move the race to another venue - if indeed one can be found - but I wonder how long it will remain tenable. The senior women's event and all the junior races take place on Saturday with the veteran and senior men following on Sunday. We started two senior women's teams but on the men's side we entered only the M50 race this year. The first surprise in the women's race was that the leader rounding the first corner was a young man. The vest he was wearing was that of the City of Norwich club. I don't know the back story to this, but my original guess was that one of the Norwich junior teams missed their race and were given special dispensation to run with the women. Fortunately the lad in question didn't stay ahead too long -his team might have affected the unfolding of the women's race. The second surprise, after Master Norwich had fallen back, was that no Aldershot team could be seen in the sizeable leading group. After nine straight wins in this championship, and with a B team more often than not well placed too, you could not have got good odds against them making it ten in a row. But as it turned out, minus any of their real star names, they never got into contention for the win, though they did fight their way up to third place on the podium. It was the largely unheralded Cambridge and Coleridge team who held on to secure their first win in this event. Becky Hall took on the tough opening stage for Ranelagh and ran well to finish just inside the top half of the 78 teams who set out. Julia Bailey then took the metaphorical baton and set a time just a couple of seconds faster than Becky, gaining four places in the process. Michelle Davies ran strongly on stage three and though losing a couple of places she set up Megan de Silva nicely for a storming anchor leg. Megan's 14.22 gained ten places for the team and brought us home 26th. That time places her 11th on Ranelagh's all-time ranking list for this circuit (see seaa_best for the full list). Our B team of Lara Werrett, Karen Weir, Victoria Elbourne and Ellen Clague stayed in much the same position throughout the race and finished in 62nd place, promoted to 61st after the disqualification of the City of Norwich B team ahead of them. The plot thickens...was this in fact the boys team running under their female team-mates' names? Did they think no-one would notice? On Sunday the weather was still dry but a little cooler than on the Saturday. All the vets teams ran together, but amongst the M50s Richard Holme completed the first leg in a solid 12th place. Trevor Maguire gained a couple and then Paul Sinton-Hewitt took us into the top ten. Finally, an eye-opening anchor leg from Colin Brett swept us into an excellent sixth place. PAGE CUP 5 miles handicap Saturday 26th September in Richmond Park There was a surprisingly small field for the Page Cup this year, only 30 runners toeing the line. It was a fine day, most un-cross-country-like, and perhaps that encouraged people to make alternative plans for what remains of our Indian summer. That, and the traffic chaos expected in Twickenham for Saturday evening's England v Wales rugby world cup match! A small field increases your chances of winning, of course, and though there was no outstanding favourite, the marshals out on the course could clearly see that one or two in particular fancied their chances. Corinne Bishop had been first away and she held on to the lead for quite some time. Indeed, she was still ahead when she reached Sidmouth Wood on the way home, but that's a long drag from there to the finish. Philippa Kitchen was one of those who were really going for it and she swept past Corinne with half a mile still to run. Anna Reichwald was next in line but she was overhauled first by Andy Bickerstaff and then by Mark Herbert. Andy and Mark had Philippa in their sights but she was too far away to be caught. This was Philippa's first handicap win, though the Page Cup has previously resided in the Kitchen household - hubby Rob won it in 2012. In typical all-action style Mark passed Andy on the run-in to take the silver medal, leaving Andy with the bronze. Mark's time of 31.03 was officially the second fastest of the day behind Nick Twomey's 29.15. However, it's possible that Nick, who missed his official start time by 5 minutes, may have inadvertently run off course. Third fastest was Bruce McLaren on 33.06. Fastest woman was Wiebke Kortum who recorded a course personal best of 35.14. Second and third were Karen Weir on 37.44 and Verka Lafeuille on 40.34.

Lydia Louw - fresh from an impressive track 1500 metres clocking of 5:23.5 last month - was an equally impressive winner in 5:32, 9 seconds clear of her nearest pursuer. Lydia's time equalled the course record for her age group.
