Our U15 girls team of Ella Scrase,  Sophia Bryant and Lilah Unwin all ran excellent individual legs to finish 5th in the team standings. 
 
Covid and holidays took its toll on our ability to field more teams but U15's Milo Sears and Florence Carter both ran strongly and recorded good lap times as part of incomplete teams.

Junior Section News

 Surrey XC League,  Richmond Park,  Saturday 16th October from Dave Mills

 The first of four Surrey XC League matches took place on Saturday at Richmond Park. 
 
Running in warm sunshine (after heavy rain earlier in the day), the RPAC Juniors put in some exceptional performances.
 
In both the boys and girls races the U13's ran 3.2K with the U15/U17's running 4.7K. 
 
The girls match saw us with only 2 U13 runners who counted for the team score, and both Isla Kinniburgh and Neve MacGregor ran strongly. We also had three non-scorers (U11's) with Florence Tombleston running an amazing race to finish in 8th place! Florence Shade and Charlotte Randall both put in excellent performances too.
 
In the U15G's we had our first four finishers constituting our A team with Ella Scrase,  Sophia Bryant,  Cara Koutzaroff-Richards and Jessie-Marie Martin coming 5th out of 11 clubs taking part. Imogen Abrahams and Pollyanne Stott ran well too to give us an additional B team presence. 
 
As with the girls team, we were missing a number of athletes on the day and consequently had only two scorers in the U13B's race. Both James Beaty and Jason Skinner put in excellent performances. 
 
The last Juniors race saw an exceptional performance from our combined U17/U15 boys team.
Led by Oscar Currey (2nd U17 home) and Samuel Stapley (2nd U15 boy), they took 1st place in the match with 18 clubs represented! And it was 1st place by 42 points! 
 
Congratulations to the team who along with Oscar and Samuel included Euan Willis (4th U15), Will John-Cox,  Sam Rolaston,  Joe Walker,  Milo Seals and Joel Lawrence. 
 
The next Surrey League XC match is on Wimbledon Common on Saturday 13th November. 
 
 

 Lilah has one to one Zoom meeting with Lord Coe from Dave Mills

  

 
Lilah Unwin who took the Gold Medals in the U15G'S 800m at both the Surrey County T & F Championships and the Surrey Schools Championships this summer (setting a new club record along the way), enjoyed a 40 minute one to one chat with Seb Coe. 
Lord Coe is a 4x Olympic medallist who set nine outdoor world records in middle distance running. He is currently President of World Athletics. 
Joining Lilah from his offices in Monaco (!) he very kindly gave Lilah many insights into successful middle distance running and even knew the Battlebridge track! 
 

British Schools Modern Biathlon Championships from Dave Mills

Competing in the 2021 British Schools Modern Biathlon Championships at the University of Bath over the weekend,  Buddy Kedgley came first in his age group in the 800m run section with a very impressive time of 2.17.51. 

In accordance with Power of 10 rules, Buddy moved from U13 Track and Field to U15 with effect from October 1st. Otherwise that time would have been a new U13B'S 800m club record! Really good result for Buddy, especially as we are out of season for track races.

Berlin Marathon Sunday 26th September

We missed this last week. Doug Kington completed the Berlin Marathon in 3:58:58, knocking 36 minutes of his PB (hopefully I've got that correct). Well done Doug! Doug reports that it was very hot and it was difficult to find any shade before the start. Unfortunately there are no pictures of Doug as he travelled to Berlin on his own. Also running was Matt Aylott who ran a brilliant 2:38:36, taking nearly two minutes of his previous run at Berlin in 2019. Matt is a second claim athlete for us now; had he been running for RPAC this would have been a new club record for his age group.  

Ed Prickett Memorial 5000m Race Wednesday 29th September 

A team of 11 RPAC athletes travelled to K2 last Wednesday to compete with Crawley AC in the Ed Prickett Memorial 5000m Race. The RPAC team was led home by Max Smithson who finished in 5th place overall in 15:56. Full results are in the Senior Results section of the website. 

Who was Ed Prickett? Ed Prickett was a former member of both RPAC and Crawley AC who was tragically killed whilst crossing the road in Tyneside in May 2004. At the time he was competing the British University Track and Field Championships at Gateshead Stadium where he had won his 5000m heat and was tipped to win the final. He was hotly tipped as a potential Olympic competitor for Beijing 2008 

Stop Press: The following item was left at the start line and doesn't belong to any of the Crawley AC runners let us know if you recognise it   

London Marathon Sunday 3rd October 2021

RPAC were well represented by a team of 13 runners (I hope that's right - it's tricky to find everyone!) and 29 volunteers at yesterday's London Marathon. Tom Almond and Mike Pocock set new club records (beating the records that they had both held previously) and there were a number of PBs and marathon first timers. Two RPAC runners completed the Virtual London Marathon event. Full details are in the article here

Dorney Marathon Sunday 3rd October 2021

Duncan Mallison and Carmela Charalambous took part in the Dorney Lake Marathon yesterday. Duncan finished in 3:11:42 and Carmela in 4:02:41. This was Carmela's first marathon and she reports that the last mile and a bit were a struggle! Well done to both of you!

Here is Carmela looking very happy at the finish.

Not the London Marathon - Saturday 2nd October 2021

Jenny Carus completed her first triathlon - the Warwickshire Sprint Triathlon in Stratford-Upon-Avon on Saturday. This involved a 400m swim, an 18K cycle and a 5K run. Jenny finished in 1:25 and managed a PB (27:59) in the 5K. Well done Jenny! 

Meanwhile Jim Vince was back in action on Saturday, completing the Exmoor Coast 55km from Coombe Martin to Minehead.  It's not the flattest of routes with over 7000ft of ascent/descent (the equivalent of twice the height of Snowdon), but the coastal scenery was beautiful apparently. This was Jim's 101st event of marathon or more distance (I think that's right) and he finished in 9:56:30. Truly hard core Jim!

  

 

The Titsey Trail 10k from Moray Carey 

The Titsey Trail 10k is a scenic, undulating off-road run organised by Oxted Runners and managed by Nice Work.  

The 2021 edition takes place at 10am on Sun 17th Oct starting in the vicinity of Race HQ,  Limpsfield Chart Golf Club, Westerham Rd, Oxted, RH8 0SL 

An impression of the course can be viewed on YouTube and the host club’s own description is:


"It is a single-lap run through the lovely woodlands of Limpsfield Common and the High Chart of Surrey and Kent. Most of the land is owned by the the Titsey Estate or National Trust. The course is almost entirely off-road along tracks, footpaths and bridleways, with a brief 200m stretch along a country lane. The first two kilometres are flat(ish), followed by some quite stiff drags (through lovely autumnal woodlands!) as you climb onto the beautiful, peaceful, wooded plateau of the High Chart, but no steep hills. After the first water stop at kilometre 4.5 there is a short loop through the woods that brings you back to the same water stop at kilometre 6. After that you can concentrate on enjoying a fast run back, dropping down off the Chart for the run home. The finish is on the same bridleway that you ran along at the start. "

Curiously, all adult finishers were given a bottle of beer in addition to a memento!  You can enter here.
