Welcome to Sphinx AC!

Established in 1984, Sphinx AC has grown from its humble beginnings at Rolls Royce to become a thriving running club firmly embedded in the Coventry and Warwickshire running community. The distinctive Sphinx logo adorning the royal blue vest with its broad gold band is widely recognised and proudly worn by our members competing in all manner of races and events on all types of terrain across the region, the UK and Europe.

Sphinx AC is Coventry’s friendly running and athletics club. We avidly support local running events such as ParkRun and the Coventry Half Marathon. Our emphasis is on healthy competition and serious fun, accommodating runners of all abilities and ages. Whether your goal is purely recreational or seriously focused, you will find a warm welcome extended to new members and beginners alike at our home at the Copsewood Club, Allard Way, Coventry. For the youngsters, our team of enthusiastic and professionally-qualified coaches invites all future Olympians age 8 to 17 to join its vibrant junior section based at Lyng Hall School running track and trail, Blackberry Lane, Coventry.

Come along to one of our training nights and see how you enjoy it! Contact us beforehand if you need any further information. Please note that there is currently a waiting list for the junior section; please contact our Head Coach of the juniors to be added to the waiting list.
