The 2012 runbritain Grand Prix so far...

The last of the spring races, the Bupa London 10,000 in May, produced one of the best in-depth domestic results in the past two decades, with Mo Farah winning the men's race. In spite of his victory and time-related bonus points, however, he’s only fifth in the overall Grand Prix standings with 450 points from one race, while Jon Pepper - who has gained solid points in the opening two events - is the current men's leader on 482 points.

The lead is shared in the women’s runbritain Grand Prix, with Juliet Doyle and Emily Wicks tied at the top with 492 points after solid performances in the opening two events. In fact, every athlete in the women’s top ten has raced both events in the Grand Prix to date and only 112 points split the group.

Remarkably, only 103 points split the men’s top ten, but the notable difference is that the pair in fifth and sixth (Mo Farah and Scott Overall), have only raced once but secured big points when they did.
