HRRL : Alton 10 May 13 2018

The team positions of both the Southampton’s mens and ladies after the Salisbury 10 are as follows.

LADIES                                                                                                                                                     Winchester & District 21pts                                                                                                                   Southampton Athletic Club 22pts                                                                                                           Hedge End 25pts

With only four races remaining the race to the league title is essentially a three horse race with the top three gapping the rest by a significant margin. Winchester has a slender lead but Southampton have assembled a crack team to reverse the situation with Rebecca Moore Karla Borland and Sarah Kingston participating.

MEN                                                                                                                                                        Overton  20pts                                                                                                                                     Lordshill 25pts                                                                                                                                       Winchester & District 28pts                                                                                                                   Southampton Athletic Club 45pts

The men have essentially guaranteed their place in Division 1 for another season but have fallen well short of expectation. Mens entrants include Andy Herman Guy Brown Scott Augur and Rich Waldron looking for a brace of victories after his Salisbury success.

There have been 529 entries for Alton 10 at the time of writing and the race is still open for entries at http://www.altonrunners.co.uk/club-events/alton-ten/alton-ten-entry-forms/
