Results for the EMGP Rugby 6, 13-May-2015

Sphinx AC had 11 runners at the second race of the EMGP Series – the Rugby 6. This course consisted of 1 mile steep downhill, 1 mile flatish, 1 mile steady climb, 1 mile flattish, 1 mile steady climb and 1 mile flattish.

The Men’s Vice-Captain is claiming a PB for the first mile, in a time of 6:26 and a PW for the rest of it! Rob and Wayne have now finally worked out that they were never going to win the Brinklow handicap the following day (or indeed any other handicap for that matter), so both went for it at Rugby, finishing 2nd and 3rd Sphinxees respectively behind our Latvian comrade, Mr Blakunovs, who finished in an excellent 9th position overall.

Congratulations to Jamie, who beat the dogged Mr Kevin (4th in age category) by 2 seconds in a sprint finish (the former obviously not trying hard enough for the first 5.98 miles) and to Uncle Tom who finished 3rd in his category.

Next race Friday 22nd at Blisworth http://mcs.open.ac.uk/mkac/emgpblisworth5.pdf
