RACE PREVIEW

Final race: Brighton 10k, 16th November

Neil Boniface leads the series by one point

Among the men, it’s shaping up to be a titanic battle between Kevin Rojas (Brighton & Hove AC) and Neil Boniface (Horsham Joggers). Boniface has the narrowest possible lead: he has scored four points from his best two races, whereas Rojas has scored five from two races – meaning it comes down to a two-man scrap for the championship at the Brighton 10k. He who finishes ahead of the other also wins the SRRC title.

In the battle for third place in the series, there are three main contenders: Matt Bradford (Lewes AC), who has scored six points from his best two races; Darryl Hards (Worthing & District Harriers), on 10 points from his best two; and Max Dumbrell (Horsham Joggers), on 12 points.

The women’s championship was wrapped up at the Barns Green Half Marathon in September, when Rebecca Moore (Worthing & District Harriers) took her third win from three races, clinching the championship without having dropped a single point. Nonetheless, the battle for second place is wide open, between Sarah Roff (Hastings AC), who has scored five points from two races; Emily Proto (Arena 80), on six points from her best two; and Helena Tobin (Brighton & Hove AC), on seven points from two races.

Lewes AC leads the team competition, on eight points, with Horsham Joggers in second, on 10 points.
