The latest DRC Grand Prix series tables are now available to view.
This update includes the first two marathon results submitted for this series. Well done to Steve Barnes and Matt Read who finished at Gran Canaria and Manchester respectively and currently take the top points in this category. Remember, this can all change as more results are submitted up until the end of September!
Also, well done to Tony Woolridge who was the only DRC runner brave enough to take on the Tour of Torpantau fell race picking up maximum points by default!

Pete Chaffer and Tony Wooldridge still lead the way in the men’s league, with Matt Read now replacing Mike Crompton in 3rd just one point ahead of Andy Probert.
In the women’s league Alice Lewis remains on top, however Annette Heylings has closed the gap to just 10 points following maximum points at the FOD Spring Half overtaking Eileen Hieron who now sits in 3rd place.
