Chasing Vickie was Matt Mold in second place, improving on his May performance by 3 minutes!
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!
