18 May 2011
The Bristol 10km, which took place on Sunday 15th May, was the second race in the runbritain Grand Prix and both the men’s and women’s leader boards see a new name at the top.
Phil Wicks and Claire Hallissey were the best of the Brits with both displaying impressive strength and taking big points to go towards their overall runbritain Grand Prix totals and leave them in strong contention for the £3000 prize money which will go to the overall winners.
Wicks led a string of British men under the 30 minute barrier which saw each of them rewarded with an extra 100 points in time bonuses and, in the women‘s race, both Hallissey and second Brit Gemma Steel were awarded an extra 100 points for breaking the 33 minute barrier.
Wicks currently leads the men’s overall standings with 698 points and he is being chased by Ben Tickner who is on 694. The women’s standings see Justina Heslop leading with 495 after finishing third Brit in Bristol. She is just ahead of Emily Wicks who is currently in second overall with 490.
The next race in the series will be the BUPA London 10,000 on Monday 30th May.
