Well done and thank you to all who took part in the inaugural Sphinx Virtual Handicap. The event was a rousing success with 55 runners crossing the finishing line. Conditions were tough as competitors were forced to choose between running in heat or a hurricane, but in spite of that many of our athletes recorded impressive personal bests! A baffling number of runners managed to crossed the line at the exact same time giving the organiser a considerable headache with allocating position points!
Thank you Kevin for organising this virtual competition with our fellow Coventry clubs, and for his write up below. Also, a big thank you and congratulations to all Sphinx runners who took part and won us yet another Mob Match! Firstly, thank you all who took part in out parkrun mob match and running your little socks off! With ages ranging from 9 to 66 (I’ll let you guess who that may be), it shows the broad range of people we have in the club.
Thank you to Paul Bergin for the following write up of Coombe 8. Final results will be provided in the next post As ever the race at Coombe Country Park starts with the course set-up on Saturday. The volunteers are split into two teams to lay out the two main areas of the race - this year the team leaders where the ever-dependable Wayne Broadbent and Jackie Stuart. In addition we had another old faithful in the shape of Kev Naughton and two of our new members, Graham Mulvaney and Sam Ward and joined later by Sally-Ann and her daughter Phoebe.

Thank you to Laura for this write up of her Parkrun tourism. This parkrun took place on walls of the historic city of Lucca in Tuscany, Italy. Because the wall is only 4km round, the first part of the parkrun course involved running up to a monument and back before running anti-clockwise on the wall. After the yoga warm up, the parkrun briefing was delivered firstly in Italian and then in English.
