With 4 Short races, and 5 Endurance races completed, we are starting to see who the main contenders for this years overall championship are. It’s a very exciting competition this year, and I predict it will go right to the end to determine the top 3, and who will be our first Masters trophy winner.
There has been change in the top 3. David Witnall is running strongly and has a good lead in the men’s championship. There is a good competition for the 2nd and 3rd places, with many in the mix.
- David Witnall – 59 points
- Mark Garrett – 43 Points
- Ben Chapman – 40 points
This year’s ladies championship is very close, with 1 point separating the top 3. But there are runners closing in on that top 3 too.
- Rochelle Ravenscroft and Sharon Smith – 55 points
- Ellie Taylor – 54 points
Rosie Oates and Kirsty Pitts are in the mix as well with 43 and 42 points respectively.
The next short stuff championship race is the Bourton Mile, and the next Endurance expert race is the Chippenham Half marathon.
Remember, you can count your best marathon or 5km up until 31st October to gain points in each part of the championship
