In the male competition, Jason Saunders, who has been consistent with two second place finishes, holds a two-point advantage over Will Edwards, who won the second race. Saunders has 18 points, while Edwards has 16. Victor Megalhaes and Michael Smikle still have a shot. They are tied on 15 points and can move up with a good effort in the finale of the three-race series. Dominic Dyer, who dominated the field to win the first race of two-mile affair in under 10 minutes, was absent for race two and appears out of contention.

Meantime, Tiffany Cole has dominated the female competition, winning the first two races and looks poised to win another title. However, 345 Athletics Club teammate, Molly Kehoe, is only two points back, having finished second in both races. Cole has 20 points and Kehoe 18. Fellow 345 AC runners, Kiara McLaughlin and Jayne Thompson, are third and fourth with 16 and 14 points respectively.
