Results for Wyken Croft XC (men), 11-Jan-2014

Twenty-two Sphinx AC men fought the brave fight at our home XC event at Wyken Croft. Despite some excellent individual performances, the other teams in the relegation zone fielded some very strong teams and Sphinx finished last on the day and are currently bottom of the division. Barring a mass disqualification, zombie attack or plague outbreak, it’s now almost certain that Sphinx will be relegated to division three at the end of this season.

Conditions were OK to start with, but the shortened course meant that we had to run four laps – and the ground got sloppier and sloppier by the minute. As always, Sphinx provided a strong team of marshals and the post-event refreshments were truly superb – many thanks to everybody that helped out.
