The British Milers Club 10k track festival to be held on the 6th September 2014 provides the fourth race in the runbritain Grand Prix 

We are now half way through the series and the current Grand Prix standings show that there are just four points separating the top three women.

Emma Stepto (handicap MINUS 1.0) is currently top of the table with 737 points. Emily Wicks (handicap MINUS 0.1) is sitting in second with 734 and Rachel Fenton (handicap 0.3) is third with 733. Their finishing positions and points in each of the races on the table below show how closely these runners push each other as they play cat and mouse for the top positions. Emma has come out on top in two of the three races (the half marathon in Reading and the Bristol 10k) but Rachel had very good results in the shorter 10k races (Bristol and London) and finished in front of Emma and Emily at London. There is everything to play for in the autumn races of the series and, it should be noted that, all three of these athletes have done all of the races in the series so far. There are others, in the mix, who only have two races under their belt and could close the gap with good results in the autumn. Tish Jones (handicap -1.2) finished 2nd in Reading and 3rd in London but missed the Bristol race. Rebecca Robinson (handicap 0.4) finished 7th in Reading and won Bristol.but missed London.
