BUPA Great South Run, October 24

In The BUPA Great South Run, behind race winner Joseph Ebuya’s course record of 45:16,  Scott Overall led the UK men’s challenge as he held off Andrew Lemoncello. Overall finished fourth in a PB 47:37, four seconds ahead of the former steeplechaser as the pair went one-two in the Power of Ten rankings.

Commonwealth Games 10,000m champion Grace Momanyi made it a Kenyan double as she won the women’s race in 52:03, but chasing her hard, Freya Murray (Coach: Steve Jones) produced a fine performance on her ten-mile debut to take the runner-up spot in 52:27.

The Scotswoman moves to No.6 on the UK all-time lists. Gemma Steel from Charnwood finished fifth in a big PB of 53:44, just ahead of the Commonwealth Games 1500m bronze medallist Stephanie Twell (Coach: MickWoods) , who took sixth in 53:52 on her 10 mile debut as the trio went 1-2-3 on the PoT rankings.
