This Sunday's ever popular 'Coombe 8', a challenging multi terrain race staged by Sphinx Athletic Club and sponsored by Coventry Runner, which takes place within the grounds of Coombe Abbey Country Park, has now reached its race capacity and there will be no entries available on the day.
The event which allows runners to explore 500 acres of this historical park; passes by formal gardens before experiencing woodlands, lakeside trails, water hazards, country meadows, farm land and the odd World War II bomb crater !
The event has received extensive complementary feedback from competitors over the years, with frequent reference to a memorable race atmosphere, much of which can be attributed to the fantastic Sphinx AC volunteers who marshal the course.
The races provides spectacular viewing points for supporters, commences at 10:00 am on Sunday 25 November and is a great morning outing for any family looking for outdoor scenery and sporting endeavour. Why not go along, support the runners and enjoy the fun.
