Jackie & Chris have provided the following report:
The first of the Thursday night handicaps once again brought good weather. Chris and Wayne arrived first to set up the course, I arrived a little later just as all the runners were beginning to turn up. Thursday night handicaps have always been very popular and this year’s race was no exception. There were 48 people running, which included 1 junior and 1 guest.
First over the line was Peter Whitehouse, one of our newer members (as Sphinx tradition dictates he has been informed that he won’t win again!!). Peter was over 4 mins ahead of the second runner, Will Robertson and Narinder Bains came in 3rd. On the night there were 7 first timers and 12 p.b’s.
After the run we all met up at a new venue for this event, the Roseycombe, where we were made very welcome and provided with plenty of healthy chips and sandwiches.
Thanks to everyone that helped on the night, or offered to help. We had loads of people volunteer, and even if we didn’t need you this time everyone is appreciated. We can’t run the handicaps without you.
