Results for the EMGP Silverstone 10k, 02-May-2017

Thanks to Mitch for the following report:

15 Sphinxees took part in the first race of this year’s East Midlands Grand Prix competition. A breezy evening, but dry throughout (and very firm underfoot!) made for good running conditions.

Well done to Tom, who finished first in his age category and to Kev N. and Jackie who were 5th and 10th in their respective age groups. And congratulations to Wayne Broadbent who wore slicks and took the racing line throughout to roar home and achieve his fastest ever 2 lap time (42:10), though pole position and pride of place went to Alex (on a traffic free course!), who was closely followed by Kev D. 4 down and 4 to go for Imran, Jackie and myself as we attempt to complete 8 races in 9 days J Roll on Monday!

Thanks to those who drove. Next race in the series Friday 12th May http://mcs.open.ac.uk/mkac/emgpblisworth.htm

Results for the Weedon 10k (EMGP), 21-Jun-2016

Mitch has supplied the following write-up of the Weedon 10k:

‘We done’ Weedon again then, 6 of us this time. Flat as ever. Course PB’s for Glassman (by 12 minutes), but only because he was injured last time (again) and walked most of it, and also for Laura by 4 minutes (now that’s what we proper athletes call genuine improvement Richards!). Nothing much else to report, except that Allen ‘Rockefella’ El-Sour is currently running at £26 a race for this year’s EMGP series. Thanks to Dave W. for driving.

Next and final race http://mcs.open.ac.uk/mkac/emgpmiltonkeynes10k.htm

Results for the Harborough 5 (EMGP), 14-Jun-2016

Mitch has provided the following account:

4 of us made the trip to Foxton Locks for the Harborough 5. The photo shows us at 7.40 p.m., just five minutes before the start, with the cows in the background scurrying for cover. Probably something to do with the grey cloud directly above us that decided to unleash its full potential at 7.44 p.m. just as we were standing on the start line 🙁 Notwithstanding the torrential rain, we all got round in respectable times (but nothing that the handicap secretary needs to be concerned about ahead of Monks Kirby this Thursday) and Jamie actually had an injury free run (no spasms, cramps, pulled muscles, diarrhoea, constipation, scarlet fever, man/bird flu, chickenpox, broken nails, twisted eyelashes, etc., etc.). Thanks to Dave West for driving. Next race Weedon, 7.45 p.m. next Tuesday http://mcs.open.ac.uk/mkac/emgpweedon10k.htm Please let me know if you wish to car share from the club.
