Our first mob match of the season takes place on Saturday 4th November. Most of you will know what mob matches are, but for those new members who dont, heres a quick run-down. Its a straight fight between two clubs. Each club fields as many runners as possible and all contribute towards the final result. We have four of these mob matches per year, and we are currently on an unprecedented fifteen match winning streak. Can we make it sixteen? Well, our opponents certainly wont make it easy for us. Were up against Thames Hare and Hounds and, as you will see in the race results below, Thames won the opening fixture of both the womens and the mens Surrey Leagues a couple of weeks ago. So we can expect them to put a strong team out for the mob match but thats not the be-all and end-all for these races. Weight of numbers plays a huge role. The more runners we can get out, the better our chances of success. We need young and old, male and female, fast and slow. Even if you just cruise round, youll still count. The race starts at 2.30pm and is on Thamess superb 7.5 miles course on Wimbledon Common. So nominally its an away fixture but Thamess HQ is in Roehampton Vale, just across the A3 from Robin Hood Gate so its hardly far away. Maps of the HQ and the course are on our website here:. There is a car park adjacent to the Thames HQ. NATIONAL XC RELAYS These also take place on 4th November, so good luck to those of our womens squad who are travelling up to Mansfield to take part. SURREY LEAGUES RACE 2 The second Surrey League races take place on Saturday 11th November. Our women, who finished a promising 5th in the opening race, are at Nonsuch Park, starting at 11am. The organisers have opted to revert to a single senior 6km race, which will probably feature upwards of 400 runners. The schedule is: 11am Senior divisions 1 and 2; 12 noon under 17s and Under 15s; 12.30pm Under 13s. The men are down in 8th place after the first race, but have plenty of scope to climb up the table. They are on Mitcham Common and their schedule is: 2.30pm all under 17s; 3pm seniors. Well have more details of the venues nearer to the time.

FRANCKEISS CUP ROWING RACE Paul Gregory revived this event a few years ago, but we have only put in a crew on one or two occasions since. The event has been growing in popularity and five local running clubs put in crews last year. The cup is actually ours it was donated by Ranelagh member R H Franckeiss in 1929 but we havent brought it home for some time. This years races will take place at The Skiff Club Teddington on Sunday 14th January. Do we have any rowers in our midst, or anyone who would like to give it a try? The boats we use are two-person skiffs with a cox. Paul writes: Crews are doubles, ladies, mens and mixed. No experience is necessary, three free training sessions are optionally available on Saturdays or Sundays - pre-booked only. The Skiff Club provides coxes if needed. Entry fees are £12 per crew on the day. For more info: and here:. Reply to this email if youre interested.

WHAT'S HAPPENED *************** SURREY LADIES CROSS-COUNTRY LEAGUE DIVISION 1 Saturday 14th October at Priory Park, Reigate Phil Aiken reports: Year on year the number of runners had been increasing (an average of over 400 per race in 2016/17), putting pressure on courses and facilities. And so at the Leagues AGM in June, the decision was taken to split the Senior Women into two, one race for each division. The first would start at 11 am, the second at 1pm, with the two Junior races in between. The Surrey Ladies Cross Country League thus kicked off its 2017/18 season if not bright, then certainly early. Last years opener at Nonsuch Park saw a Ranelagh team favouring quantity over quality. And as the list of absent scorers from the last campaign increased in the days leading up to the race, there were some fears that the current campaign would similarly trip up at the first hurdle. But no two league seasons are the same. New runners appear on the scene. Former runners depart. Others come on in leaps and bounds with a summer track season and none more so than Belgrave Harriers Sophie Harris. A steadily improving winter season may have passed under the radar for most watchers, but a 34:38 10k at Cardiff in early September, followed in the next month by the equal 4th and equal 6th fastest legs at the South of England and National Road Relays respectively, elevated her to be among the very best in the county. So it was little surprise to see her distance herself from the leading group not long into the second lap and cruise home with a nigh on 30 seconds advantage. The main competition was initially provided by one of the newcomers, 17 year-old Julia Tomczak of defending champions South London. Her time at the Surrey Road Relays was the second fastest ever, bettered only by Lily Partridge, but the pace was too much and she ceded second place by two seconds to Stephanie Davis of Clapham Chasers, another with a recent sub-35 10k. It was to be a little over two minutes later before the first Ranelagh vest came over the line. Laura Blazey in 14th was soon followed by new second claim acquisition, Cordelia Parker, with Captain Becky two places back, meaning Ranelagh had put three in the top 20. The A team was completed by Suzy Whatmough and, just outside the top 50, Fiona Ford. For the B team, Alice Forbes, Ria Woodfield and Eugenie McLachlan all finished inside 100. Ninth finisher Lara Werrett in 117th finished a few places lower than our 5th place from last year. It wouldnt be Ranelagh tripping up at the first hurdle this time around. Just six days after the Bournemouth marathon, Vice-Captain Becky Northmore closed out the B team. But that wasnt our lot. Far from it. Jess Harbert won the battle of the Under 20s, though kudos to Cecily Day for coming all the way back from Exeter to race. Charlie Hyde, Niamh Holt and the new Mrs Cooper matched last years finishing total from the season opener before the battle of the mums ended in victory for Clare over Karen. A one-all draw between Team Day and Team Harbert. When all the numbers had been added up, Thames Hare & Hounds toasted victory. South London and Clapham joined them on the podium but, just a further 17 points behind, Hercules Wimbledon and Ranelagh tied for fourth place. Whatever was I afraid of? There was a record 244 finishers but none, sadly, were from the Intermediate 3 training group. A consequence of splitting the divisions was to thin the tail end of the race and our heroines from last year thought better of it. So too did the countys best runner, Phoebe Law of Division 2s Kingston & Poly, preferring the Cross Challenge at Cardiff to a lonely time trial in Reigate. That fate befell the winner of this summers Ranelagh 10k, Hannah Irwin. Then, she set a pb in temperatures of 30o. Here, she set the fourth quickest time of the day overall, winning by almost two minutes and leading Guildford & Godalming to what would have been a clean sweep of the top five had Collingwoods Debbie Jackson not bagged fifth. In the Under 17 race, Emily Coulson made her Ranelagh debut, finishing just one second and one place behind Izzy Atkins. Lexi Keech placed top 20 in the Under 15 race. The junior races were notable for the presence of a number of athletes coached by Phil Kissi of Blackheath & Bromley, though running in Clapham Chasers vests. It is not just at Senior level that the quality is increasing SURREY CROSS-COUNTRY LEAGUE DIVISION 1 Saturday 14th October at Priory Park, Reigate Phil Killingley reports: Reigate Priory Park was resplendent in autumn sunshine and golden leaves. The temperature was more summery - up at 21C at one point. And the heat was on as a talent packed field lined up for the first Surrey League fixture of the season. Coming off third place in the League last season Ranelagh were missing a good ten or so of our stars through injury, illness and other commitments. And Carl Assmundson missed a train and arrived 3min late for the start, prompting a warning from Alan that few who heard it will forget in a hurry. So it was a hard landing - 8th out of 9 teams to start proceedings in the relegation zone. Only Reigate - who failed to capitalise on home advantage and seem already doomed - are below us. But the team that got there ran well enough to place us pretty close to Clapham (7th) and SLH (6th) so things dont look bleak. Richard Gregory used his track speed from the summer for 24th. Run of the day was Marc Leyshon in 39th in his first Surrey League for the club. A cluster of Haarer, Kenton and Killingley surged forward in the 50s, closely followed by Winch and Mockett in the 60s. The Ranelagh tail wagged with a superb three in three scorers in the 70s from Mark Herbert, newly wed and Sorrento honeymoon hill-trained James Whistler and Anchorman Marc Snaith. Marc had reportedly never expected to make the scoring team again. Rich Kimber was unlucky to miss out just a place and a second behind. The inaugural B team competition saw Ranelagh B significantly outperforming the A team. They finished 4th of 9 B teams. Toby Cooper was anchorman in 20th Ranelagh place. Commiserations Bruce McLaren and Marcus Atkins who just missed out. Other B team runners were Dave Lawley, Greg Atkins (first senior race for him and after six weeks of rest), David Ready, Vaughan Ramsay, Ed Smith, Mick Lane, Eamonn ODwyer and Stewart Anderson. Only the first six clubs managed full B teams. Finlay Sinclair was our only representative in the junior race, finishing 27th in the Under 13s. CABBAGE PATCH 10 miles Sunday 15th October at Twickenham. We had upwards of fifty Ranelagh runners in this years Cabbage Patch and that despite many missing out because the entry limit was reached well before race day, plus the first mens and womens Surrey League races taking place the day before. A few raced both days but most chose one or the other. Leading Ranelagh finisher was Jake Waldron in 9th place, but he was in the vest of his first claim club Newham and Essex Beagles. Behind Jake in 12th place was Nick Impey with a big PB of 55.51. Ted Mockett and Rick Jenner also beat the hour for the first time in Ricks case - and we had another seven in the 60-70 minutes range. Elisa Ferrua was our leading woman with a sub-74 clocking, another PB. Indeed, PBs were to be found throughout the field and congratulations go to all those breaking new ground. SURREY MASTERS (aka VETERANS) CHAMPIONSHIP Saturday 21st October in Richmond Park. We were once again the hosts for Surreys Masters Championships. There were two separate races first a 6km for men over 60 and all women over 35, followed in gathering gloom by a 10km for men 40-59. The winds of Storm Brian made it tough going. Womens race winner Claire Grima of Hercules Wimbledon was quoted as saying This is probably the windiest inland race Ive been in. South London Harriers usually fare well in this event and they started well by wrapping up the W35-44 team race with the lowest possible score. We did not complete a team in that category but our W45+ team led by Fiona Ford finished 5th in their race just behind SLH. Fiona ran well to take the individual W45 silver medal. Marie Synnott-Wells was our leading W50 in 5th place. South London were clear favourites for the M60 team race. The Ranelagh team was expected to feature in the tussle for the minor medals but no more than that. So it came as a pleasant surprise when we were announced as victors by six points over SLH. Gordon Whitson writes: Our victory is due to the injury of the SLH man I was pursuing up the last hill when he suddenly pulled up with what looked like a thigh muscle strain. Chris Owens led the team, in the process winning the individual M60 silver. Gordon Whitson and Dave Powell completed the scoring three. There was one more medal to come our way, the M75 bronze for Allan Lang. If the victory of our M60 team was a surprise, an even bigger surprise came when we were called up for golds in the M40 team race. We had no-one in the individual medal placings but Kris Davidson (4th M40), Ed Barker (7th M40) and Neil Rae (6th M45) packed in well enough to take the team victory. Our M50 team finished 6th led by Marcus Atkins (7th M55). Thanks to everyone who helped with marshalling, officiating and catering on the day. SOUTH OF ENGLAND XC RELAYS Saturday 21st October at Wormwood Scrubs Phil Aiken reports: Ranelagh women returned to Wormwood Scrubs for the third year running, increasing their turnout one again. Six seniors came in 2015, rising to seven in 2016, with a further three Under 15s. This year there were 13: eight seniors, three Under 17s and two Under 15s. First up were the Under 17s, scoring separately to but running with the Under 20s. Izzy Atkins led out, but has been suffering with a cold and came in 12th. By the end of the first leg the runners were well spread out, so Emily Coulson on leg 2 and Alice Patterson on leg 3 ran fairly isolated races. Up against some strong clubs, Ranelagh came home 8th. The Under 15 team was reduced to two, with Lexi Keech double booked. But it gave an opportunity for Marianne Malams daughters, Abigail and Hannah, to make their Ranelagh debuts in a pressure free situation. They will hopefully be back for more. Its a tricky thing with relays, getting the teams right. The A team is the one that scores, so should have the quickest runners. But who are the quickest? Lydia Esler got the nod over Suzy Whatmough and they would go head-to-head on the opening leg. Lydia had things to do later and started as if she wanted to get the run out of the way as soon as possible., leading the field into the first corner (theres a picture on Athletics Weeklys Twitter feed). This outburst of exuberance was not to last however. Lydia dropped back, eventually finishing 17th, 138 behind the unfamiliar vest of West Suffolks Holly Archer, setting the days fastest time. Worse, Suzy had caught up and gone past, 23 to the good and four places in front. Over to you Captain. Becky Curtis-Hall duly obliged, lifting the A team to 9th and giving Laura Blazey a 13 cushion. Fanny Vein, meanwhile, had lifted the B team one place to 12th. Chelmsford, with no members of the Judd family present, had leapt from 7th to 1st and maintained the gap over Belgrave to take gold. A spirited run from Rebecca Piggott of London Heathside closed the gap, but not enough to improve from 3rd. She needed to be looking backwards as well as forwards, though. Stephanie Davis, just a second off the fastest time, and Chloe Tighe, with the 5th fastest time, significantly reduced the respective deficits of Clapham Chasers and Herne Hill Harriers, but Heathside hung on. For Ranelagh, Laura gained a couple of spots and lost one, the team finishing in 8th place, more or less matching the results of both previous visits. Eugenie McLachlan kept the B team in 12th, the highest finishing B team. An injury withdrawal meant the C team was incomplete, but Verka Lafeuille and Marianne Malam ensured it got one leg further than last year. Post-race analysis of the results showed that had Suzy run for the A team, it would have finished a place higher. Just goes to show, its a tricky thing with relays, getting the teams right.

Almost went exactly as planned, going out in sub 1:35 but at 27k the stomach was not good so had to dive off for a toilet break so lost some valuable time. 1 C Ashford (BRAT) 2:33.46 197 Richard Gurd 3:14.40 FESTIVAL DES TEMPLIERS Saturday 21st October at Millau, France Monna Lisa 28km 1 A Fine (Uglow) 2:07.00 163 Paul Sinton-Hewitt 3:30.33 533 Karen Weir 4:48.19 534 Peter Weir 4:48.20 Jo Sinton-Hewitt ran the shorter VO2 Trail race, finishing 517th in 2:34.54.

Andrew Brown writes: Richmond parkrun's 10th birthday on Saturday14 October was an emotional occasion. Most Richmond directors, past and present, were there, including Karen Weir, Heather Martingell, Ally Pickard and Alastair Ritchie, and there were 36 Ranelagh runners. Inter alia, male and female points trophies (now retired in line with parkrun HQs removal of the parkrun points table), found permanent homes with the two runners who in the last four years have won them three times each - Cecily Day the Hugh Brasher Salver (originally presented by Ranelagh), and Nick Ward (unaffiliated!) the Stephen Instone Memorial Cup. There were two new Richmond parkrun awards: Pat Hewlett was presented the Inspiration award, and the Family award went to the Rushbys (James, Sam, Daniel, Maia, Ben & Phil, in order of finishing!). Ian Harrison won the McChesney trophy for report writing. Paul Sinton-Hewitt, CBE, then spoke about how much parkrun means to him: one of the unexpected benefits has been the opportunity parkrun provides for people to meet people they would not otherwise have the chance to meet. Finally, Bill Neely spoke movingly about fellow Northern Irishman, local vicar Trevor Patterson (age 57, average 20:01 in 246 runs at Richmond parkrun) and his love of parkrun; Trevor died on Tuesday of a heart attack while on a short 20 minute run. Connor Patterson then spoke emotionally but eloquently about how parkrun had been important to them as father and son: there wasn't a dry eye."
