 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 don’t,
 here’s a quick run-down. It’s 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 won’t make it easy for us. We’re up against Thames
 Hare and Hounds and, as you will see in the race results below, Thames won
 the opening fixture of both the women’s and the men’s Surrey Leagues a
 couple of weeks ago. So we can expect them to put a strong team out for the
 mob match…but that’s 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, you’ll still count.

 The race starts at 2.30pm and is on Thames’s superb 7.5 miles course on
 Wimbledon Common. So nominally it’s an “away” fixture but Thames’s HQ is in
 Roehampton Vale, just across the A3 from Robin Hood Gate so it’s 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.         

 These also take place on 4th November, so good luck to those of our women’s
 squad who are travelling up to Mansfield to take part. 

 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. We’ll have more
 details of the venues nearer to the time.   

 CHRISTMAS PARTY  Saturday 9th December
 Oh, I know it’s only October but Christmas will be upon us before we know
 where we are. The club Christmas bash will be at the Lass O’Richmond Hill
 pub in Queen’s Road, Richmond on Saturday 9th December at 7pm. It’s £40 per
 head to include a three course dinner and wine, dancing and a disc jockey.

 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
 haven’t brought it home for some time. This year’s 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, men’s 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:

 you’re interested.

 The club lost another of its oldest members with the death on Saturday 21st
 October of Jeff Bull. Jeff was 81 and had been fighting prostate cancer for
 eleven years. Obituary to follow. 

 The club is continuing to subsidise track sessions on Thursday evenings at
 the Osterley track. All groups and all abilities are welcome. The sessions
 are  every Thursday 7.30-8.30pm.  Link to the map is here:

 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 League’s 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 year’s 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

 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 wouldn’t 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 wasn’t 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
 year’s 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 county’s best runner, Phoebe Law of Division 2’s Kingston &
 Poly, preferring the Cross Challenge at Cardiff to a lonely time trial in
 Reigate. That fate befell the winner of this summer’s 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 Collingwood’s 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

 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 don’t 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 O’Dwyer 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 year’s Cabbage Patch…and
 that despite many missing out because the entry limit was reached well
 before race day, plus the first men’s and women’s 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 Rick’s 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.   

 Richmond Park.
 We were once again the hosts for Surrey’s 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. Women’s race winner Claire Grima of Hercules
 Wimbledon was quoted as saying “This is probably the windiest inland race
 I’ve 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

 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 Malam’s daughters, Abigail and Hannah, to
 make their Ranelagh debuts in a pressure free situation. They will hopefully
 be back for more.

 It’s 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

 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 (there’s a picture on Athletics Weekly’s Twitter
 feed). This outburst of exuberance was not to last however. Lydia dropped
 back, eventually finishing 17th, 1’38” behind the unfamiliar vest of West
 Suffolk’s Holly Archer, setting the day’s 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, it’s a tricky
 thing with relays, getting the teams right.”

 delighted to finish in 3:14:40, even with a toilet break. 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.”

 “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 HQ’s 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."
