Emmanuel Bett (handicap MINUS 4.9) won the Bupa Great South Run in very windy conditions that made the going get tough towards the finish. He fought off a strong challenge from defending champion, Stephen Mokoka (handicap MINUS 4.4). Thomas Ayeko (handicap MINUS 4.4) had challenged the two leaders early in the race but struggled to stay with the pace towards the end and he finished 3rd.  Andy Vernon (handicap MINUS 6.2) was the first British athlete to finish. He ran a great race to take fourth place just in front of Abdi Abdirahman (handicap MINUS 4.2).

First female was Florence Kiplagat (handicap MINUS 1.4) with Polline Wanjiru in second place. Charlotte Purdue (handicap 1.0) finished 3rd and demonstrated her comeback intentions having not raced since the summer of 2012. Her handicap score has been as low as MINUS 1.6 but because she hasn't raced for more than a year her score had slipped to 1.6 until this weekend. It's good to see her back on the attack!

Meanwhile Grand Prix leaders Nicholas Torry (handicap MINUS 5.3) and Dave Webb (handicap MINUS 4.6) were the first two British finishers at the BMW Frankfurt Marathon and both lowered their handicap scores with superb performances that gave them 18th and 19th positions respectively.
