Results for the EMGP Banbury 5, 10-Jun-2014
Ladies Day at Banbury 5
Eleven Sphinx runners made the trip down the M40 to Banbury for the 5th of this year’s EMGP races. This 5-mile route is traditionally officially started by an officious official with an official gun in the middle of a very peaceful housing estate
The first mile takes us through the streets before turning left up and out along the B4035 into the country. Then a steady climb until we eventually turn left past some quaint Cotswold stone houses into Broughton before a tough mile of undulating, rolling slopes.
The last mile is one straight fast run into the finish on a pavement alongside the busy A361. Congratulations first and foremost to our three ladies who all achieved individual PB’s for 5 miles; Dorota 34:16, Joanna 37:30 and Fiona 45:14. Ash took the honours in the men’s race, finishing 1st in his category and 9th overall in a terrific time of 27:11; so impressed was I with his performance that I immediately invited him to be in my men’s relay team on the 3rd July 🙂
Another consistent performance from Kev (33:25), who finished 5th in his category for the fourth consecutive race and Tom, who finished 3rd in his. Final thanks to Fi, Ash and Tom for driving.
Next race Tuesday 17th June, the Harborough 5.
