Mitch Timms provided this narrative:
In the first event after the Diamond Jubilee we dressed in our traditional ROYAL blue and posed for the usual regal photos prior to the parade of the Sphinx monarchy down to the start. The race itself was run in perfect conditions, no rain, no breeze and ideal temperature. No members of the A-Team present (Ash and Andrejs), so no prizes tonight. However, special mention to Mary Bench who knocked at least 1 minute 45 seconds off her 5 mile PB – a performance fit for the Queen. Just time for some more celebrity snaps for the paparazzi (race positions dictated the order of accession to the Sphinx throne) before the usual uneventful journey home. Thanks finally to royal photographer Kate Young – and we understand if you don’t want to be seen with us again…..
