With big interest in this event it was always going to be a tough one to arrange. With drop outs in record numbers leaving teams decimated meant at least 9 sunbursts stepped up to become heroes and run twice. What did not help on the day was that Sphinx had changed the running order since informing us the night before. I threw a proper tantrum at them stating how half my men would not be present and most of my women would have disappeared before their new race start times. Sphinx obliged and changed what they could.

The night went by so quickly we did not get a chance to cheer everyone and sort out the ever changing teams but the rest of the club kept everyone going. The women set us off and true to the events nature everyone ran out of their skins, great performances from all our women en masse. Then it was the men’s turn, they were releasing them all and I had to rescue one of our who had just nipped to the toilet. It was fast, our teams were chasing hard and being chased at the same time. We flew and managed 2nd in the men’s race behind a very strong Spa team. Then came the mixed team, we had kept these back from the other races so they were fresh and ready. It was quick, Adam setting them off and quickly establishing a position that Sarah could maintain. Natasha stepped up after Sarah and got Pete to start off in 2nd place against a 12 year old Godiva boy. Pete blasted the first 100 metres and soon overtook him. Pete looked confident, the rest of us watched as a Badgers runner was eating the ground up behind him, but the 400 metre start on him that Pete had was enough, just. 1st place and title
Well done all on a great performance on a great night. it almost all worked out in the end – Spencer

Lutterworth 5-Mile – 7 July

49 Spencer Davies 35:42
201 Dawn Webb 46:16

Sunday saw the sun and 2 of us heading over to Lutterworth. This was a great find, a real happy and friendly atmosphere, plenty of parking, music to get the atmosphere going, and with the weather it was a real treat. As expected once the race was underway I started to melt into the tarmac, but with a nice and gentle 2-mile downhill start this was good. The hills came in the second half but there was nothing horrific.

There was a nice medal to finish. A great event, well organised, well marshalled (9 marshalls out on course is all that it needed) and well attended – Spencer

Warwickshire Open Graded Series 1 Mile – 3 July

  Oliver Jones 4:58
  Stuart Lumsden 5:01
  Darren Taplin 5:50

The 3rd race in the Warwickshire Open Graded track series included a 1 mile race. The opportunity to join the great British athletes and join the ‘sub 4’ club meant that three Northbrookers entered the event. Can’t speak for the rest of the guys that entered but I was coughing up lactic acid for about 2 hours after I finished. Funnily enough – a very flat and fast course. Who knew? – Oliver
