34 Sphinx runners turned up on an overcast morning to run the latest Warwickshire Road Race League fixture and also to contest the latest additions to the Sphinx trophy case: the Richard and Jackie Bagley Trophies, for the first man and first lady. Those present in the humid clubhouse before the race were “treated” to the sights of Jamie’s Earlsdon Wobbler injuries (claims of Wayne pushing him over are still being investigated) and Mark’s forearm teat (a full product review may or may not be coming soon).
The race itself could be described as a race of two halves; not just because of the undulating first 5+km but also due to the deluge that greeted runners in the first 15 minutes of the race. Thanks to all of the support in such conditions, notably Richard Bagley and Pete Hall. Well done to Mary Bench and Steven Osmond on 10k PBs, and Michael Gough finishing second in his category. The first Sphinx man was myself, and first Sphinx lady was Catherine Gough.
