Super 8 series after 10 races

Click to download Super 8 standingsWith 3 races remaining the winner of both the ladies and mens competition have already been decided, so the only second and third are now up for grabs.

Becky Davies has so far scored 399 points from a possible 400 maximum! ... Meanwhile, John Pullen has an unassailable 397. Congratualtions to both runners.

Only a handful of runners have completed 8 races to date, but expect the list to grow over the next couple of events.

Super 8 standings after Race 8

Click to download latest Super 8 series standingSo now the competition starts for real...

From this point forward your best 8 results will count towards your final total. Unfortunately only one person has thus far completed 8 races... so congraulations to Nicky Tyler, you win the prize for most dedicated racer.

After Kinnersley the placings are identical but points wise much tighter. Becky Davies once again scored the max 50 points in the ladies, leaving her trailing Nicky by 31 points but with a race in hand. Jan Edwards holds the third spot but Laura Tootell is quick making up the gap.

The men's competition sees John Pullen in his customary position of first. Steven Flowers rich vein of form has earned second spot, while Craig's continue consistency places him in third.

...but all this is irrelevant unless you complete at least 8 races so we expect to see you all next Wednesday at Westhope, after which we should have a few more contenders entering the frey. 

Super 8 series after Race 6

Click to download current placingsOnly two more races to go before the totals start to count for real!.....

In the meantime there's been a lot of movement after a week of The Magic Roundabout and the Aconbury XC.

Sitting a top the leaderboard in the ladies is Nikki Tyler who has, to date, amassed a total of 283 points. Closing in after a couple of superb performances is Becky Davies. Three straight 50 point scores have put her on 248 points. In the final placing spot is Laura Tootell on 242 points. Consistant scoring will certainly see her in the mix come the final stages of the competition.

In the mens event Luke Mason still leads on 248 points. However, John Pullen has closed the gap to just 1 point. These two will most likely face off for first and second respectively... or could a dark horse crash the party? In third is Craig Rees with 231 points. If he can continue to perform consistantly bronze could well be in his grasp.

Next up.... Darren's Dash... this one will sort the pack out!!

Super 8 series after 3 races (UPDATED)

Click to download the fileOk, it took a while as I had to check through manually for the Wye Valley members who were missing an entry under club, but I think everyone is now accounted for... until I hear differently!!

Obviously the point situation has changed slightly but the current placings are as per my previous post.

This time I've also included a breakdown of each members scoring for the three races to date.


Super 8 series after 3 races

Click to download the current positionsIt's early days in the Super 8 series but the deluge of races in the next few weeks will shape the competition ahead.

In the mens division Luke Mason's early season form has seen him collect maximum points from each of the 3 races to date. Meanwhile, consistant running from Hedd Jones and Craig Rees sees them occupying second and third respectively.

Nikki Tyler has laid down the challenge in the ladies competition, dropping only 10 points over the first events. Lynne Compton is close behind in second place, but expect Kathryn King, currently third, to mount a serious assault over the next couple of races.

Next up... Crocodile 8!

Update: It appears that some members were not listed as Wye Valley so I have missed them from the results. I will have to go through the full results and pull out our runners manually. Please bare with me as this may take a while but I will issue an update asap. Cheers, Alan

Super 8 series (after 2 races)

Click to download the current standingsI must apologise for the delay in posting this update... The old memory seems to be going!

It's early days but the races will come thick and fast as we push into, what we hope, is a much less wet summer than 2012!!

Next up will be the Hereford Half Marathon on Sunday. As usual, a large contingent of Wye Valley are expected to take part so let's hope for perfect conditions......
