Event Details


Calling all Ranelagh Harriers – so far we’re 2-1 in our mob match tally; following a tough match against South London Harriers last month. The fourth job this season for the mob – can we bring a show of strength and take on the formidable Orion Harriers on their home turf?

First run in 1920, last year’s 94th iteration saw a coachload of Orion descend upon Richmond Park to fight it out for the Harold Lee Cup. Sadly, despite a hard fought battle, Orion claimed victory by the slimest of margins. Can we restore club honour this year in the wonderfully scenic, mud-ridden, bog-strewn, quagmires of Epping Forest?

So the effort of every able-bodied Ranelagh Harrier is sorely required to take on the Orion horde. To all, hear the call to arms to come for a ‘good run in the country side‘, to support our club and for the chance to chant (shout, holler – take your pick) the Club Cry:

Hobble Gobble
Razzle Dazzle
Zis Boom Bah
Ranelagh Ranelagh
Rah Rah Rah.
