With just two days to go, Andrew Kevin Mowatt - who clocked 1:37.22 in the recent Bupa Great North Run - remains the leader of September's edition of Reward Running.

Mowatt’s handicap improvement is 8.72, having reduced his overall handicap from 22.80 (a category 4 athlete) to 14.08.

If you don’t already know, another four spot prizes (Sennheiser headphones) are up for grabs in addition to the top ten winners for this month so there’s added incentive to get involved beyond the adidas mi-coach for the overall winner!

If you haven’t entered Reward Running before, here are a few things you need to know...'s our free monthly competition where runners can win a prize if they reduce their handicap score by the largest number of points in the month. At the end of the month, the runners who are in the top 10 of the leaderboard that month will win a prize - an adidas miCoach for the winner, and Sennheiser headphones for the rest.

The Reward Running top 10 consists of the runners who have improved their handicap the most in that month (make sure you’ve claimed your free runbritain handicap first!), but within the top 10, one place is reserved for the most improved in each of the four handicap categories:

1: 5 or under

2: 6-12

3: 13-20

4: 21 or above

There is also one place reserved for the most improved runner that has run at least 10 races in the year before the competition month.
