 CLUTTON CUP 10 miles HANDICAP  Saturday 19th March in Richmond Park
 Our longest club handicap takes place this Saturday, starting at 2pm. Please
 register at the clubhouse. It's two laps of our 5 miles course. Please be
 aware that there will be minimal marshalling for this race, and it's likely
 only the second half  of the course will be flagged....so it's best that you
 know the course or follow someone who does! Details and course map are on
 our website: http://www.ranelagh-harriers.com/clutinfo.html. The course
 begins our usual way, i.e. down to the bottom of Queen's Ride. It then takes
 a half turn to the left and loops round Spankers Hill. So far this is
 identical to our familiar mob match course. The 5 miles route diverges after
 the steep downhill at the back of Spankers Hill. Instead of turning sharp
 right and climbing back up the hill, it simply follows round the edge of the
 wood and then heads straight down towards the causeway between the two Pen
 Ponds. Immediately before the Ponds the course turns left through the trees
 and uphill away from the Ponds. It crosses a road and horse ride as it
 climbs. Two right turns follow in quick succession, taking the course back
 downhill to the end of the Pond Plantation. From there it's a climb up to
 Whiteash Lodge then a right turn through the woods until the Sidmouth Wood
 fence is rejoined for the run in to the finish. The handicap is two laps of

 SOUTH OF ENGLAND ROAD RELAYS  Sunday 20th March at Cyclopark, Gravesend,
 We have teams entered in both the men's 12 stage starting at 12.15pm and the
 women's 6 stage which follows on at 1pm. Good luck! 

 BAKER CUP 3 miles ROAD HANDICAP  Saturday 2nd April in Richmond Park
 A couple of weeks after our longest handicap race comes our shortest - the
 Baker Cup 3 miles road race, held on the closed roads in the centre of the
 Park, starting and finishing near White Lodge. Start time 3pm. Suitable for
 all ages, please register at the clubhouse rather than at the start if you
 possibly can. The Baker Cup will go to the handicap winner and there is also
 the Jack Ellicock Trophy for the first junior to finish in the handicap. 

 As usual on the evening of the Baker Cup race we have our annual supper and
 prize presentations upstairs at the Roebuck on Richmond Hill, starting at
 7pm. All are welcome but places are limited, so book with Michele Gibson
 micheleagibson@hotmail.com  as soon as possible. Cost is £25 to
 include welcoming glass of bubbly, beer while supplies last and buffet

 If you are a trophy holder and have not yet returned it to our trophies
 steward Heather Martingell please contact Heather
 hmartingell@gmail.com  without delay. She has to arrange for the
 new holder's name to be engraved before the presentations evening and time
 is running short.
 If you are a trophy winner in the past twelve months do please make every
 effort to attend and collect your trophy. It's great to see all our trophies
 on display at once, but very disappointing when few winners are there to
 take them home.

 information on the updates that will be included.

 These include important changes regarding compulsory athlete registration in

 their annual registration fee in advance of entering events. These include
 championship races and other races such as road events organised under UKA
 rules. The rules cover club members from the under 13 age group upwards.
 Race applications will include the requirement for individual's England

 E.A. registration fees are due on 1st April. The club membership fee
 includes the England Athletics registration fee and is also due on 1st
 April. The registration fee for 2016/17 is £13 and the club has been able to
 absorb increases in recent years without increasing club membership fees.
 Current membership fees are:

 Senior £40
 Retired £20
 Junior £10
 Student £10

 Jon Smith reports:
 "In the build-up to UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) No 196 which took
 place last night, some of you may have heard that Conor "the Notorious"
 McGregor had been piling on the pounds to take on an opponent two weight
 divisions above him. Meanwhile, an equally notorious sportsman had been
 trying to do the exact opposite. For those who haven't been following the
 story, the build up to this year's Ellis Cup  inter-club race was dominated
 by one question: could Stewart Anderson, locked in a titanic battle for the
 ages with Nick Twomey, defend his ever-decreasing lead in the McLeod Trophy?
 Such is the importance that both men have placed on this competition (which
 covers the entire cross-country season) that the latter had taken the
 extreme decision this week to have both his wisdom teeth removed in a
 desperate attempt to make him more fleet of foot. With only two more club
 races in the cross country season to come after this, Nick was looking to
 pick up points by putting as many Ranelites as possible between him and
 One man he couldn't get past however was Eirin McDaid. Long before
 compatriot Conor McGregor was (literally) beaten into submission in the UFC,
 Eirin had affirmed his status as the real pride of the Emerald Isle.
 Sporting a pair of lurid green compression socks which looked like they'd
 come straight out of the Nick Twomey wardrobe of sports clothing,  he calmly
 followed a couple of Serpies down Queens Ride, casually overtook them around
 Pen Ponds, and then jogged around the second lap. With the two Serpies and a
 Milocarian following in behind him, the club needed a traditional blue wave
 to compete in what was to become a six to score competition - and they got
 Twomey secured fifth with one of his best cross country performances for
 some time, his dental work clearly being the sole differentiator. He was
 closely followed in by an excellent performance from the always reliable
 Dave Lawley (a massive age grade PB of 74.8%), who nipped ahead of the first
 Straggler home. Rumours that Dave jogged in behind Nick for fear of
 incurring a McLeod-related bout of verbals were strongly denied. And they
 kept coming. Two weeks ago in the Blackheath mob match Jonathan Smith and
 Nick Impey had both managed to run off-course on a route which most five
 year olds could learn in an hour. This time however they stayed on track to
 grab 8th and 9th. Ryan Fisher, continuing his improvement after his Autumn
 calf injury, followed in 10th with Mark Herbert just behind in 11th. And
 with that, Ranelagh had secured a comfortable win in the Cup, beating
 Serpentine and Milocarians by a good 40 points. Twomey's cause was further
 aided as he saw Dave Ready and Colin Brett cross the line before Stewart
 made his appearance ahead of Llew Davies.
 In the Dysart Cup the ladies made it another double for the club. Suzy
 Whatmough warmed up for the Surrey Half Marathon by leading the team home,
 followed in by Marie Synott-Wells, Becky Northmore, Bonnie Morgan, Ellen
 Clague and Carol Aikin, securing a narrow victory over Milos for whom Hannah
 Jarvis put in an impressive performance as first lady home and 12th overall.
 In the junior competition Ranelagh took on Hercules Wimbledon AC in a
 closely-fought one lap competition. Hercules's Henry Silverstein was first
 home, followed in by Tom Bradley. Tom informed us out on course that he'd
 taken the decision to run a parkrun the morning of the race, which we'd like
 to think was the only reason why the talented footballer didn't otherwise
 annihilate the field. Our leading under 13 Euan Sinclair put in an
 impressive performance in 4th (age grade PB of 70.3%), with Finlay Sinclair,
 Luke Maguire, Molly Taylor and Josie Kearey rounding out the scoring
 positions. In the end Hercules's weight of numbers helped them to secure the
 tie. Tom won the Lotinga Cup club junior boys championship while the girls'
 equivalent, the Camilla Cup, went to Molly. 
 As the dust settled and Ken and Alan crunched the numbers, it transpired
 that Stewart's McLeod Trophy lead had been cut to just five points. The
 tournament moves on to the Clutton Cup , with Stewart's dentist rumoured to
 be in line for a major cash windfall before then.
 Thanks as always to the volunteers and marshals who turned out on the day."

 Thanks also to Ted Mockett and Ellen Van Keulen who organised a very
 successful Quiz Night in the clubhouse, helped with the logistics by Andy
 Hayward and Michele Gibson and with the beer by Mike White! 

 RANELAGH CUP SCHOOLS RACE  Saturday 12th March in Richmond Park
 The decision by the English Schools Association to bring their championships
 forward by a week this year had many knock-on effects, including a dramatic
 fall in the number of schools taking part in our Ranelagh Cup race.
 Organiser Julian Smith had about twelve schools who had indicated they would
 take part, but no fewer than five of these dropped out during the week
 preceding the race. In the end only seven schools were represented, and of
 these three were unable to raise a full team of four. The Judd School from
 Tonbridge in Kent were the cup holders and even they sent a mere four
 runners, allegedly their 'B' team. 'B' team or not, they were too good for
 the opposition. Their top man Jess Magorrian appropriately wore number 1 and
 led all the way to win by over half a minute from Reynolds of Hampton
 Grammar School and Kemp of UCS. Hampton also provided the seventh runner
 home, but sadly that was the extent of their team. Judd's three remaining
 runners filled 8th, 9th and 10th places to ensure that they would
 comfortably retain the trophy. Right behind them came Ranelagh's Euan
 Sinclair, second man home for Tiffin. It was a very close-run thing for the
 remaining team medal places as a single point covered the next three
 schools. Wellington School totalled 55 points for the silver medals but
 Tiffin School and UCS both totalled 56. The verdict and the bronze medals
 went to Tiffin based on the position of their last scorer.

 ESAA NATIONAL SCHOOLS XC CHAMPIONSHIPS  Saturday 5th March at Wollaton Park,
 Five Ranelagh Harriers represented their counties in the National Schools
 championships. It was a pity that a change from the normal date meant that
 this clashed with our own club junior championships. Best individual result
 came from Izzy Atkins, 67th in the Junior Girls race. Sacha Kennedy finished
 only 23 seconds behind Izzy, but such is the quality of the field that this
 represented over 80 places! Izzy and Sacha were first and third finishers
 for the Middlesex team which finished 21st. Jennifer Silva ran well in the
 Intermediate Girls race and was 8th finisher for the London team which made
 the podium in 3rd place. Jess Harbert was another who finished well inside
 the top half of the field, finishing 133rd in the Senior Girls event. Jess
 was 5th finisher for the 7th-placed Middlesex team. Greg Atkins was our only
 boy in action, and he finished 198th, 5th home for the Middlesex team which
 closed in 18th.

 LEITH HILL HALF MARATHON  Sunday 6th March at Dorking
 Quoting from the race website:
 "A half marathon from Dorking to the top of the highest point in
 south-eastern England - Leith Hill (and back). In near perfect conditions of
 close to 0°C and sunshine, 240 intrepid souls set out from Dorking to
 conquer Leith Hill - the south east of England's highest point - not all
 would return in one piece. A couple of twisted ankles, back spasms and
 various cuts and bruises were presented at the finish line, usually with a
 smile and a 'Oh, all that blood? It's just a flesh wound.' The course in
 2016 was relatively dry, so there were plenty of fast times, notwithstanding
 the presence of motorbikes hurtling down Wolvens Lane and also some local
 horses that blocked the route for a while. Among many other notable times
 was the 1:37:44 (17th place) of 55-year old Paul Sinton-Hewitt (Ranelagh
 Harriers) - who counts as running royalty, since he is the
 creator-originator of parkrun. Not just a historic figure in running, but
 pretty quick too!"

 Our three representatives in the Inter-Counties - Jake Waldron in the Senior
 men's race for Surrey, Julia Bailey in the Senior Women's for Avon and
 Somerset and Izzy Atkins in the Under 15s for Middlesex - were all pleased
 with their performances, though Jake must have been disappointed that Surrey
 failed to close in a full team of six. The Surrey women - with our own Phil
