What is a Mob Match?

A mob match is a head-to-head race against another running club. Originating in the early 20th century, Ranelagh has traditionally enjoyed these en-masse cross country races with our friends at Blackheath & Bromley Harriers, Orion Harriers, South London Harriers, The Stragglers, and Thames Hares & Hounds.

 

This format sees each club field the biggest “mob” it can muster. Scoring is based on 3 runners less than the smaller team’s numbers. E.g. if we are at home and have 50 runners, and Orion Harriers field 46 runners, then it is 43 runners to score.

 

Points are awarded based on position across the finish line, and then added together. The lowest total wins and this means that everyone has the potential to score (based on the total number participating), with each opponent overtaken yielding a 2 point gain (1 less for us, 1 more for them).
