Due to the weather Lyng Hall School is closed and there will be no training tonight for the Sphinx Juniors. Next week, 18th December is the last session before Christmas so I hope to see you all then for running and fun. Regards Sue

Steve has sent in the following report from the last Quadkids event:
A great turn out of 17 junior Sphinxes took part in the final Quad Kids event at the Coventry Godiva track. The best performance of the night was some magnificent sandpit raking by the Sphinx Junior Team Manager but the juniors also did themselves proud, most showing improvement from the previous events. Thanks to all juniors , parents and Jackie for helping to make this years Quad Kids event a success.
5 Sphinx juniors competed in the final cross-country league fixture of the season. Well done to Daniel, Caden, Michael, Sam, Annie and every junior (and coaches and parents) that represented the club throughout the season.
5 Sphinx runners made the trip to Warley Woods to compete in the 3rd round of the 5-round season. Conditions were challenging and they all did themselves and the club proud.

The 2nd junior cross country took place at a windy but dry Wolverhampton on Sunday. 4 Sphinx juniors took part all improving on their times from the first meeting Well done to Daniel, Caden, Michael and Annie.
6 juniors ran In the first event of the Warwickshire Cross Country league at Northampton. 3 first timers and 3 returning for another season. The weather was warm and sunny making for good conditions on a fairly tough undulating ( that means hilly) course. All ran great races and vowed to run again later in the season. Thanks to the parents for supporting all the juniors and to Jackie Timms, Sue Gough and Bob Carey for helping in the finish funnel.
