Start time is 3pm, but please register at the clubhouse by 2.30pm. SURREY CROSS-COUNTRY LEAGUES BEGIN The opening Surrey League races for our mens and womens teams both take place on Saturday 14th October in Priory Park, Reigate. Its unusual nowadays for both teams to be at the same venue, and this is the only time this season that well have that luxury, so make the most of it! Mind, itll be a long day. Not before time the decision has been made to split the women's race - which has been attracting fields in excess of 400 - into separate division 1 and division 2 races. The first senior race will start at 11am, the under 17 / under 15 girls will run at 12 noon, the under 13 girls at 12.30pm and the second senior race at 1pm. The divisions will alternate as to which races first. At Reigate, our race - Division 1 will be at 11am. Then, following on from the second women's race will come the boys race (all age groups together) at 2.30pm and finally the men's Division 1 senior race at 3pm. Men's Captain Phil Killingley writes: "The Surrey League is a big focus for the men's team in the winter racing calendar. Previously the preserve of sub 36min 10km runners, so hot was our top ten, we're now posting both an A team and a B team for this series of 4 races. The A team will do very well to get anywhere near last season's awesome third place in the league. But can the B team be the best? Ranelagh's strength in depth, if converted into race attendance, makes this emphatically possible." Here's Women's Captain Becky-Curtis-Hall: "Surrey League is a great way to getting into cross country racing for those who have never done it before. The first two fixtures are 6k, so just a little longer than a parkrun. The scoring works like this: The position of the first five runners from each team is added up to give the team score. The lower the better. Everybody helps the team - even if you are not in the first five, you push other runners from other teams down so give their teams higher team scores. The more runners who turn out for us the better. As if that wasn't enough to persuade you, the vice captains and I bake cakes to enjoy afterwards!" Reigate's Priory Park has toilets, a cafe and parking. Reigate railway station is not far from the park. SURREY MASTERS (aka VETERANS) CHAMPIONSHIP Saturday 21st October in Richmond Park. As usual we are hosting the Surrey Masters. There are two races: the first, at 2.15pm, is for men over 60 and all women 35 and above over a 6km course. Then at 3pm men 40-59 run 10km.

AMAZING MAASAI GIRLS PROJECT Michael Morris writes: "Dear Ranelagh friends, I am co-organising the Amazing Maasai Girls Projects Global Run in London Richmond on Saturday 7th October. It will take place at 10.00am starting and finishing at The White Cross pub in Richmond. The route will run along the Thames towpath in the direction of Mortlake / Barnes and back. We have distances of 5km or 10km, whichever is preferred. The run will be one of several charity fun runs held around the world on the same day to raise money for girls in Africa to be able to have secondary school education. Our run is to support Fridah Meshami. She is a student at St. Francis Secondary School, which is the most prestigious school in the Laikipia area in Kenya. She is a Form 1 student. Please note it is an informal fun run and not a race. It is open to anyone of any ability who wants to run, jog or walk. You are free to run at your own pace, there will be no time record, no ranking or prizes, youll be there to support by donating your run. There is no joining fee but we are asking for a small donation when registering. The run is open to the first 60 people to register and there will be a medal for all finishers as a thank you for taking part. Registration is here:. All participants are encouraged to wear red, see this inspirational video from the 2016 Global Runs here:. More information about the Amazing Maasai Girls Project can also be found here:. Also, if anyone can help on the day please let me know at email@example.com." BOB MASLIN The club lost its oldest member with the death on August 30th of Bob Maslin at the age of 101. Here is part of the tribute to Bob read at the funeral by Steve Rowland. Bob was an energetic youngster. Like most children at that time he walked to school each day and when he started work for the Post Office he cycled to the sorting office and back. He had access to the PO's private gymnasium and tried his hand at everything from the trapeze to fencing. At this time running didn't get a look in...and then the war intervened and his attention was taken by the greater struggle. Back home after six years fighting there were other priorities - getting married, finding a job, starting a family. It was not until the mid 1950s that he decided to take up cross-country running and initially he joined the Polytechnic Harriers. Then in 1958 he switched to Ranelagh Harriers, who were based in Richmond Park. He was by this time 42 years old and already in the "veteran" category. His first race for his new club was on the other side of London on a thoroughly muddy course through Epping Forest in November 1958. He revelled in the tough conditions and finished well inside the first half of the field, an impressive debut that probably worried his fellow veterans. They were right to be worried. In March 1959 Bob won the club's Veterans championship, the first of a sequence of six consecutive victories. He was finally narrowly beaten in 1965 but went on to win three more times in the following years. Area and national championships for veterans began to be inaugurated in the mid-1970s, just in time for Bob to get a look in. He was a member of the team that won silver medals in the National Over 50s championships in 1976. He won the South of England Over 60s title in 1978, the over 65s three years later and the Surrey over 60s in both 1979 and 1980. He later donated a trophy for the leading over 60 in the club veterans championship. In contemporary reports, Bob is often referred to as "Family Man Maslin". This was because he usually brought his own cheerleaders to races, in the shapes of his wife Olive and his three daughters. At one event where a biting winter wind whipped across the barren expanses of Hampstead Heath, a policeman took pity on the three little girls. "Wouldn't you rather be at home in the warm?" he asked. "YES!!!!!!!" they chorused disloyally. Nevertheless, such early traumas did not put off Trish and Sonia becoming keen runners themselves. Running was Bob's sport but for a short time he was persuaded to play cricket in the summer. The experiment was not a success, owing to an unfortunate tendency of his to run out his batting partners by sprinting too fast between the wickets. Bob kept running into his 80s and holds age group records for two of the club's cross-country courses. When he finally retired from racing he and Olive would act as marshals for our home cross-country races, and their spot beside the Pen Ponds became known as Maslin corner. Wally Garrod writes: "Bob was one of the nicest people I have ever met and I or any other oldie foolish enough to think they can beat Bob's records..well, think again!" Frances Ratchford adds: "Bob was very special and always encouraged me and all runners because he loved running. He started me on my running journey." Bob ran the occasional road race and even essayed a 20 miler a couple of times, but the country was his love. He epitomised the two lines that feature on the front of the club's magazine: "And we run because we like it / Through the broad bright land." A few more facts and figures: Despite his relatively advanced age Bob featured for several years in our championship teams. He clocked up 78 mob matches and was a regular competitor in club handicaps. He was successful only once, however, winning the Clutton Cup in 1977. Bob was himself a shrewd club handicapper for several years, and was also the Hon Secretary from 1973 - 76. He was always ready to help in any capacity - everything from demolishing the old clubhouse to driving for our various Pennine Way Relay attempts - a real club stalwart.

WHAT'S HAPPENED *************** SOUTH OF ENGLAND ROAD RELAY CHAMPIONSHIPS Sunday 24th September at Crystal Palace Crystal Palace was at one time a regular venue for road relays and road races, and even cross-country events. The return of a major event could not be called an unqualified success. There were problems with the course itself too short for some age groups, too complicated for others. Official results were still lacking some detail several days later. But the venue - to quote Athletics Weekly - "has potential". Phil Killingley reports on the men's race: "A glorious afternoon was in reality a little warm for running a hell-for-leather 5km (not 6km as advertised) in Crystal Palace. The competition was pretty hot too, as various junior, women's and men's teams took on the might of the best clubs in the South of England. Nick Impey's time is one of those still missing but he is expected to be the fastest Ranelagh man of the day in 16:00ish - excellent time for a hilly course. Al Whatmough was the furthest away from his predicted time, running around 16:30 instead of 18:15. Luckily I didn't believe his predicted time and put him in the A team anyway :) Marc Leyshon made an excellent debut for the club - time around 16:40 It will be an agonising wait for the senior men - top 25 teams (not including 'B' teams) qualify for the National Relay. Someone told Peter Haarer after the last leg that we were around 26th. Either way, a brilliant result given we've not got anywhere near the Nationals in the 13 years I've been with the club." Phil later added: "The big upshot of Sunday's relays is that somehow Ranelagh managed to qualify for the National finals on Saturday 7th October 2pm in Birmingham. This is seriously impressive. In 31st place, but with 6 non-qualifying B/C teams ahead of us, we were the last team to make it. Peterborough were 7 seconds slower than us over 90 minutes of running and they miss out. Would we have managed if it wasn't for the exhortations of Gordon Whitson from the sidelines, worth at least 1 sec per runner. Initial results suggest that in our six-man team, Captain Killingley was the weakest link, but we were probably all within a minute of each other, so very consistent." BUT current results on the SEAA website suggest we might have just missed out on National qualification after all. All will become clear" The vet men acquitted themselves excellently, with 14th and 24th places and fastest time by Rick Jenner at 17.57. It was great to see two Ranelagh Under 15 Boys teams taking part. They placed 38th and 43rd with Tom Armstrong's 9:18 on the opening stage placing him in the top 50 times of the race." Our women were not under pressure to qualify for the Nationals as all clubs are allowed to take part. We fielded three complete teams in the senior event and like the men it was consistency that was our watchword. Becky Curtis-Hall ran fastest with 14:15 on the opening stage but all four runners in the 'A' team set times within 40 seconds of each other. Our 'B' team was not far behind the 'A's, led off by an excellent 14:28 from Fanny Vein. We finished 37th and 41st with a 'C' team 69th. Video of the races courtesy of Tonbridge AC here:.

WORLD TRIATHLON NEWS Saturday 16th / Sunday 17th September in Rotterdam, Netherlands Gill Sanders raced in the Grand Final of the World Triathlon Series in Rotterdam on 16th September, while Chris Owens competed in the World Age Group Championships at the same venue on the following day. Gill writes: "Last race in the World Triathlon Series - the Grand Final in Rotterdam. The main aim for this year was to qualify for the Commonwealth Games next year and to be as consistent as possible in the World Series. I'm ecstatic to have nailed Commies qualification and despite some ups and downs and a few health issues I was happy to perform how I did and finish off ranked 23rd in the World for the year. I was hoping for better but in the circumstances I'll take that!" 1 Flora Duffy (Bermuda) 1:58.39 (19.14 / 1.44 / 63.40 / 0.28 / 33.36) 29 Gill Sanders (S Africa) 2:07.53 (21.15 / 1.48 / 67.55 / 0.23 / 36.34) Chris reports: "In chilly and damp conditions on Saturday Gillian Sanders represented South Africa in the Women's Elite race and Chris Owens represented Team GB on Sunday, when luckily the rain stopped and the course dried overnight, to make Sunday an ideal race day with sun and little or no breeze. This was just as well as after a 1500m swim in the Rhine, the bike course involved crossing three of Rotterdam's iconic bridges on cycle paths and then racing for 40km through town streets and cycle paths. Both Elite and AG courses were twisty and narrow in places making the ride a challenging and technical course (especially on a time trial bike) with lots of sharp turns and variable surfaces. It was a great relief to get round safely - at least 5 or 6 competitors ended up in plaster! The final event - a 10k run - was on paths and roads in a small park, and was essentially flat apart from a few short ramps. I finished 2nd. I passed one Canadian, one Australian and two Dutchmen on the run, but did not quite catch the leader..." 1 K-H Nottrodt (Germany) 2:18.27 (21.35 / 5.37 / 65.13 / 2.20 / 43.44) 2 Chris Owens 2:22.52 (24.36 / 5.23 / 69.29 / 2.04 / 41.23) RICHMOND RUNFEST HALF MARATHON Sunday 17th September Official results don't include club names, so the lists below for this race and the Marathon are probably incomplete. 1 A Milne (Enf & H) 1:10.11 11 R Felton (Shaft B) 1:22.07 (1st woman) 48 Dan Little 1:27.15 140 Jim Old 1:34.23 265 Elisa Ferrua 1:40.09 324 Matt Sowton 1:41.57 RICHMOND RUNFEST MARATHON Sunday 17th September Bruce McLaren is believed to have been a finisher, but doesn't feature in the results. 1 D Baker (Soton) 2:48.24 110 James Ritchie 3:29.05 SIMPLY HEALTH BRISTOL HALF MARATHON Sunday 17th September 1 A Richmond (Bideford) 1:08.07 69 Jonathan Smith 1:19.24 ALICE HOLT FOREST 10km Saturday 23rd September 1 E Hutchings (unatt) 36.32 (chip time 35.49) 87 Paul Wapshott 55.08 (54.08) 214 Louise Wapshott 73.12 (72.11) BERLIN MARATHON Sunday 24th September Excellent runs at each end of the 2:40 bracket from James Winch and Jonathan Moore. 1 Eliud Kipchoge (Kenya) 2:03.32 356 James Winch 2:40.53 716 Jonathan Moore 2:49.25 3318 Paul Doyle 3:14.26 5658 Egis Vincel 3:27.23 12573 Chris Cato 3:54.57 EALING HALF MARATHON Sunday 24th September 1 J Poole (Serp) 1:08.05 (chip time 1:08.05) 11 I Clark (Serp) 1:17.55 (1:17.53 1st woman) 60 Matthew Roberts 1:23.41 (1:23.38) 300 Richard Gurd 1:34.21 (1:33.49) 545 Richard Pender 1:39.34 (1:39.10) 1003 Jarryd Hillhouse 1:47.01 (1:45.09) 1353 Jess Harbert 1:52.23 (1:50.13) 1535 Dave Lawley 1:54.59 (1:53.53) 1826 Cathy Holman 1:58.44 (1:56.56) 2564 John Herriott 2:09.48 (2:07.28) 2916 Karen Harbert 2:15.38 (2:10.49) 3323 Ewa Soltys 2:23.19 (2:16.32) 3324 Gavin Hillhouse 2:23.19 (2:16.34) WINDSOR HALF MARATHON Sunday 24th September 1 D Jarvis (St Mary’s U) 1:09.49 (chip time 1:09.49) 3520 Deborah Blakemore 2:48.17 (2:39.32) parkrun results...
