Ed has been a Ranelagh member for many years despite living in Ontario, Canada and in December he will be in the UK visiting family. He plans to run in the Mob Match at home to South London Harriers on Saturday 10th December, and in the evening up at the Roebuck on Richmond Hill he has agreed to give us a short talk about his running career and his connection with Ranelagh, following which we'll have a question and answer session. We'll be aiming to start at about 7.30pm upstairs at the Roebuck, which should give people time to get something to eat there first if they wish. All are welcome, there's no charge, but please let Andy Hayward firstname.lastname@example.org know if you're planning to come.

RANELAGH RICHMOND HALF MARATHON It's taking place on Sunday 30th April 2017 but organisation under Race Director Sandra Forrest is already under way. In particular, one of the organising team, Tamsin Burland, wishes to step down after the 2017 race. Tamsin is the volunteer co-ordinator and would very much like someone to join the team now and shadow her for this year's race in order to learn the ropes.

WHAT'S HAPPENED *************** HAROLD LEE CUP MOB MATCH v ORION HARRIERS Saturday 5th November at Chingford, Epping Forest Report and results were in the last e-news, but new member Michael Morris has written an interesting article about the club and the mob match tradition on web newspaper SW Londoner here:. Ken Powley adds: "Last Saturday's race against Orion was run in exceptionally fast conditions. In fact, the last time we had similar conditions was in 1996. Seven of Saturday's team turned out then, making up what Steve Rowland called a 'paltry team of 23'. An occasion where we lost handsomely. Those who ran that day were John Ricketts, Mike Peace, Chris Owens, Bill Harvey, Ian Grange, and of course you know the other two (David Wright - all time mob match leader with 166 appearances; and Clive Naish who has run the last 131!)" ECCA NATIONAL CROSS-COUNTRY RELAY CHAMPIONSHIPS Saturday 5th November at Mansfield Results were in the last e-news. Phil Aiken reports: "It's fair to say that Mansfield doesn't top Google's list of answers when searching 'a day trip to'. But contemporary thinking was defied with a record entry for the Senior Women's race at the National Cross Country Relays. A southerner knows they're in foreign territory when, adjacent to the venue, is a building housing the Coal Authority. Maybe this is why so few clubs from London and the South East were in attendance - only Tonbridge, Blackheath & Bromley, Herne Hill, and Aldershot, Farnham & District brave enough to join Ranelagh's foray across the River Thames. But for someone like me, raised on the edge of the North Midlands coalfields, Mansfield was almost like coming home. Most types of cross country terrain are packed into the compact Berry Hill Park. And packed in was how we needed to be as a keen (other adjectives are available) wind blew from the north. But there was no snow. With victory the first step to the European Clubs' Cross Country Championship, Aldershot announced their intention from the off, Steph Twell leading the field on the opening lap. Rio must have felt a world away. Behind, Wakefield and Pippa Woolven, in the fiery colours of Birmingham University, hinting at her victory in the Milton Keynes Cross Challenge seven days later. Half a minute down on this leading trio, Nichola Jackson's fine run had Ranelagh in 12th place. Less than a second ahead was Hatti Archer, with five World Cross Country appearances in the second half of the noughties. As Louise Small and Emily Hosker-Thornhill stretched Aldershot's lead, it was left to the evergreen - and not just because of their Charnwood vests - Potter sisters to mount some sort of challenge. But it proved more of a challenge for Leeds City. Despite improving leg by leg, last year's winners had to settle for third. Further back down the field, but not that far back at all, Suzy Whatmough ran a gutsy second leg to leave Ranelagh just outside the top 25. What could Estelle Damant do on the final leg? Pass Tonbridge. Pass Thames Valley Harriers. And pass Windsor, Slough, Eton & Hounslow - sadly just the one club, not four. But, oh... here is Leeds City's B team. You don't finish first and third in successive years without being a strong club. One place lost. At the last corner, there is Highgate. Will Estelle? Can Estelle? Alas, no. So a net gain of one place, a final position of 26th. Though for a number of days it was 25th, until race officials relented and inserted Herne Hill into the 15th place in which they finished. A 'chip allocation' error resulted in former Australian junior international Chloe Tighe running with a B team chip, initially relegating Herne Hill to the list of incomplete teams. 124 teams completed the race and still in the top half, by a good minute, was the Ranelagh B team of Julia Bailey and the two Beckys, Northmore and Curtis-Hall. I was told by one of my Surrey athletes how good it was for a 'littlish' club like Ranelagh to be taking part in National events. Alastair Aitken, writing on the Highgate Harriers website, praised his three runners, 'the backbone of the senior team', for finishing ahead of some big clubs like... Ranelagh Harriers. These [cows] are small but those are far away...". 2XU SURREY LEAGUE Saturday 12th November at Farthing Downs, Coulsdon Phil Killingley reports: "A dry Epping Forest for Orion last week, but a very wet Farthing Down for the second Surrey League, only seven days later. As the men lined up there was a minute of silence for Aldershot junior athletes Lucy Pygott and Stacey Burrows, tragically killed in a road accident at training on Tuesday evening. For a while, there was only the wind through the trees and the thoughts rustling through our minds. Then applause, followed by roars as the teams geared themselves up for this, one of the toughest of Surrey League courses. 'Cheetah on speed', aka Jon Pepper, did it again, securing a superb second Surrey League win, the last also here in autumn 2014. Jon said 'I used my local knowledge to run the hills conservatively on the first lap. I had my eye on this fixture as soon as I saw it was in Coulsdon and have been getting fitter with each week, which is nice to see. It's always a pleasure running for Ranelagh'. But it was what came after that really torpedoed Ranelagh up the table. Anthony Haynes, running his first race in our colours, was 9th, and he had led for a while with Jon. He was closely followed by Richard Gregory who improved from 27th last time to 11th here, with a pb 83.4% age graded performance. No surprise to his captain who has been trying to keep up in training. Then Ben Anderson, a Kiwi living in Clapham who joined us in April and also running his first race for us, secured 17th despite modestly lining up at the back of our group on the start. Jackson Creegan ran excellently for 21st, but was a non-scoring second claimer. Carl Assmundson and Phil Killingley were then 27th and 29th; Peter Haarer and Archie St Aubyn 45th and 47th, with George Howard and Jon Smith bringing us home. Jon had never scored for Ranelagh before and won the anchorman trophy, which he took to bed with him, so attached was he to the honour. I asked him for a quote, which he failed to give me, so in its place I simply report that when told he was in 10th place he uttered a single expletive and surged forward up the hill. James Winch in his first league race experienced the vortex thrill of the division 1 start, but faded, finishing 11th. Having beaten his captain convincingly only a month ago, I predict he'll be back! A great race for James Whistler (age graded pb of 71.3%), followed by Mark Herbert, Dave Lawley, Sam Dalgleish, Toby Cooper and Patrick Butlin. This is our best start to the season since I joined the club in 2004, and possibly in much longer - great running team! We finished 3rd today just one point behind Hercules Wimbledon. Overall we are in 4th place and in touching distance of 2nd and 3rd to pounce on any slip-ups, with a huge gap to 5th and 6th behind us. Just 12 months ago we were contemplating relegation at Christmas - hard to imagine looking at this table. In the junior race at 2.30pm, Greg Atkins improved significantly on race 1 to finish 14th. Reef Boericke was running his first race for Ranelagh and was 26th. Great results both of you, no doubt you would have been higher up the field in a two lap race!"

LONDON YOUTH GAMES CROSS-COUNTRY Saturday 19th November at Parliament Hill The London Youth Games races precede the senior London Championships and usually serve to nicely churn up the notorious Parliament Hill course. Not so much this year, though. The relatively dry recent weather left the course quite runnable by the time the seniors came along, despite the earlier patter of hundreds of tiny feet. In the Youth Games an excellent seventeen Ranelagh members took part for their borough teams, almost equally divided between girls and boys. All seventeen ran well in their age groups, best result coming from Freya Thomson who was 5th in the U17 girls race. Izzy Atkins in the U15 girls finished 8th and brother Greg was 12th in the U17 boys. Our largest contingent was in the U13 boys where Tom Armstrong, Will Murphy and Euan Sinclair crossed the line almost together in 12th, 13th and 15th places. U17 Boys (4.5km) 1 R Lutakome (Sutton) 14.59 12 Greg Atkins (Richmond) 16.12 U13 Boys (2km) 1 J Kennedy (Wandsworth) 6.59 12 Tom Armstrong (Kingston) 7.42 13 Will Murphy (Kingston) 7.42 15 Euan Sinclair (Kingston) 7.44 55 Matthew O'Donovan (Kings) 8.13 58 Jonny Brook (Richmond) 8.15 63 Kabir Sait (Richmond) 8.17 64 Joe Murphy (Richmond) 8.18 175 Finlay Sinclair (Merton) 9.22 U17 Girls (3km) 1 A Brown (Wandsworth) 11:05 5 Freya Thomson (Richmond) 11.43 23 Alice Patterson (Rich) 12.20 U15 Girls (2km) 1 S Hoare (Wandsworth) 7:22 8 Izzy Atkins (Richmond) 8.02 19 Lexi Keech (Wandsworth) 8.20 43 Poppy Jensen (Kingston) 8.42 153 Josie Kearey (Hounslow) 10.07 U13 Girls (2km) 1 A Ives (Havering) 7.40 46 Maisie Jensen (Kingston) 8.41 89 Caitlin O'Donovan (Kings) 9.14 LONDON CHAMPIONSHIPS Saturday 19th November at Parliament Hill Phil Aiken reports: "The weather, it knows. It may have been a mild, dry autumn, but a week and a half before cross country's first major encounter with Parliament Hill the rain arrived. And stayed. Storm Angus, though, was late for the party. Conditions at this 'iconic' venue, the 'spiritual home' of cross country were thus described as 'unusually benign' and 'far more forgiving'. But 'the hills were still there' and, for the London Championships, the first one is right there the moment the start line is crossed. No gradual build up from the lido for this. Almost immediately, the main protagonists came to the fore. Former winner Lara Bromilow, of Marshall Milton Keynes, started strongly, as in the preceding two years, when she was to fade and finish second behind Phoebe Law, then third behind Steph McCall and Phoebe again. Neither was at Parliament Hill today, focussing instead on the following week's Cross Challenge in Liverpool. Just behind were a trio featuring Herne Hill's Stacey Ward, with a fourth and third in the Met League this season, Highgate's Hannah Viner, narrowly pushed into third a couple of years ago, and our own Nic Jackson. As the first lap drew to a close, Stacey had established a gap at the front, Lara had begun to fade, as expected (and not just by me) and was trailing Nic, Hannah no longer able to keep up with the leading three. Perhaps feeling the effects of the previous week's fell race (but what a trophy!), Nic wasn't pulling away from Lara. If anything the gap had narrowed as they passed me for the first time on lap two. If I was concerned it was with some justification as Lara had pulled ahead on the return passing. Stacey was long gone and the gap back to fourth was equally large. So it was to be an individual bronze for Nic, but what of the team race. There were 16 Ranelagh vests on the start line and the quality was sufficient for pre-race calculations to suggest a team score below 100. Behind Nic, Megan de Silva ran arguably her best race at Parliament Hill, finishing 11th in good company. In the late 30s, Suzy Whatmough, Laura Blazey and Abi Weeds were separated just by seconds and the odd runner. But the placings had changed slightly on the way to the finish. The scoring four in, with a points total more like 90. It was now a matter of how strong other clubs were. There was a 90 second gap to Marie Synnott-Wells. When captain, Marie led a team to these Championships in 2008. A 10th place then, it would be better today. Then the Ranelagh vests came at regular intervals - 16 seconds gap to Becky Northmore, beginning to make noticeable improvements after ITB issues in the summer; 14 to Clare Fowler (if only you could train more regularly); 21 to Captain Becky, suffering with a cold but still turning out for the team. Jodie Gray returned to her former stamping ground to push the number of finishers into double figures. But more were yet to come. Rachel Revett, Hannah Doyle and Verka Lafeuille (hopefully not the token cross country appearance this season) were just 10 seconds apart, with Heather Martingell at 10 places. Charlie Hyde just missed the top 200, leaving Carol Aikin the honour of closing out the team. As I arrived back at the finish the team results were being announced over the tannoy. London Heathside were clear winners, but the silver and bronze medals were to be decided by a solitary point. The spoils went to Herne Hill, with Ranelagh third. It could have been different, but no-one should feel disappointed. To make the podium here is a significant achievement. Of course, no outing these days is complete without some cake and today's wonderful offerings proved that, in this respect, Ranelagh has no equal. As a postscript, it's worth noting, once again, the extraordinary growth of women's cross country in recent years. From 2011 to 213 the number of finishers were 139, 139 and 135 respectively. Yet the last three years have seen those numbers rise to 186, 203 and now 250. Following previous comments, it was pleasing to see David Ready and Vaughan Ramsay donning Ranelagh vests in the men's race, finishing 126th and 250th in a field of just over 400. Out of little acorns..." RIVER THAMES HALF MARATHON Sunday 30th October Results were in the last e-news.

WORLD MASTERS CHAMPIONSHIPS Wednesday 26th October - Sunday 6th November in Perth, Western Australia Two names which feature on our club Honours Board were medallists in these championships. Former Australian Cross-Country champion Jim Langford won his honours for finishing 4th in the Southern Cross-Country Championships way back in 1977, while Lauren Shelley's 2:41 in the London Marathon put her name on the board in 2005. A year later she represented Australia in the Commonwealth Games Marathon. In the W35 category Lauren scored two decisive wins, taking the 8km cross-country by a margin of 40 seconds and the Half Marathon by all of 8 minutes. Jim was running in the M70 class and reports: "I was happy with my silver in the Cross Country. I only had two months to get fit following 8 weeks of no running and a month in the UK where I had a cold and could not do much. The winner of the XC, Don Mathewson and I are great friends. I had beaten him in Lyon and at the Australian Championships early in the year. I was lucky to beat Martin Ford from the UK. My 10km run was awful! It was hot and I just ran out of fitness."

But he continued to run intermittently and in 1995 recorded an impressive 2:25 in the Rome Marathon. Then it was silence again, save only for the reunion in 2006 of the team that had represented the club in our centenary match 25 years before. Then in 2009 came the start of a concerted and very successful come-back by Gavin. Already in the M45 age group and still domiciled in Italy, he ran a series of top class races over the next few years which saw him top ranked in the UK at the M45 Marathon (2:28 in 2009), M50 Marathon (2:36 in 2011) and the M50 Half Marathon (75.00 in 2011). Unfortunately persistent injuries subsequently caused the curtain to come down again...until this year. Gavin, now 55, writes: "I began a comeback early this year, and did a half in just under 1:21 in March, but then chronic injuries all flared up again and I had to pull out half way through the Rome marathon in April. That really rankled, and I wanted to get one marathon done this year as planned, even though in the meantime I got hit with a deep vein thrombosis, which is no picnic! I didn't really train for Verona and so ran it rather than raced it.
