Results for the EMGP MK10k & Series, 30-Jun-2015

8 Sphinx runners made the lengthy trip to Milton Keynes for the final, and least exciting, but definitely the hottest, race of the EMGP Series. Andrejs almost got lost (again!) but still finished 8th on the night; however his momentary hesitation deprived him of a sub 35 minute 10k PB. A PB however for Jamie who, despite a hip injury, finished in 41 mins 47 secs. Laura may well have got a PB too, but her secretary, Lisa, couldn’t instantly recall what her best time was for 10k!

With regard to the overall series itself, congratulations to Andrejs, who finished 3rd overall, having completed all 8 races (44.64113 miles), and only finishing outside of the top 10 in the Senior Men category on one aocasion (11th at Silverstone). He has already booked his coach ticket to Northampton to spend his £100 worth of running vouchers at their Running Shop. Get yourself a decent pair of running shoes my friend, you might go a bit quicker! Mr Consistency, our Rob, also completed all 8 races, finishing in an excellent 22nd place overall. Creditable EMGP debuts for Jamie (who also did all 8 races) finishing 33rd overall, and for Dave West, 46th overall. Pride of place for the ladies went to Mary – another 8 racer – who finished 7th overall in her category and only once outside the top 10. Finally thanks to all those who drove to the various events, and Gary for being our official photographer. Bring on the WRRL!

[edit by Rob] Mitch also completed all 8 races and finished in a fine 8th place overall in his category.
