2017 Sphinx AC Summer 5

Summer 5: Car park re-surfacing works

There is urgent re-surfacing work scheduled to take place in the War Memorial Park and Ride Car Park on the evening of Wednesday 14th June.
Unfortunately, this clashes with the Summer 5. The work will begin at 9pm in the evening and involves patching and repairing the main entrance way and specific areas of worn tarmac within the car park. These areas will be clearly marked in paint.

The car park will be closed at 9pm but if you are in the car park you will be allowed to exit. It will be best to leave the car park as quickly as you can and car share whenever possible.

Please park as far away from the main entrance height barrier as you can as there will be dust caused by the works. We are sorry for any inconvenience but the council have had to work around delivery of materials and contractor availability.

The Sphinx AC Summer 5 is on an accurately-measured course suitable for fast (and not so fast!) club runners as well as those non-club runners who want to run a road race in a traffic-free environment.

The course is generally flat with some minor (no, really!) undulations. Courtesy of the good people at Coventry City Council, we also have use of toilet and changing facilities which include showers.

This is a certified 5-mile course. If you get a PB here, it will be officially recognised by all the relevant bodies and clubs.
