Last weekend saw two of the most competitive obstacle races so far this year, the Spartan Beast in Edinburgh which was their European Championships and Rat Race's flagship Survival of the Fittest race in London.

The most exciting news of the week is that the team league is really starting to take shape. This time one week ago we only had one team who had reached their 12 score minimum and we're now up to 7 so we're starting to get a glimpse of how well each team is really doing. It comes as no surprise that the Mudstacle Machines have jumped straight to the top, overtaking their funrunning cousins Mudstacle Team who are still doing amazingly well in second. RPCC, Pro-Fit, Team JD and Kitbrix have all had strong weeks and its looking really close in the top 5.
For the individuals, James Burton came 5th at Survival of the Fittest to retain his top spot with Keiron Booker in 12th to retain 2nd position. The Spartan Beast saw the first points scoring race for many big names such as Conor Hancock and James Appleton so whilst they're quite low down at the moment we're pretty sure they'll be climbing up the league pretty soon when they get out to a few more races. We've also got the likes of Ross Brackley, Tristan Steed, Jason Burgess and Dave Rogers who have all just completed their second race and are likely to be making their moves into the top 10 pretty soon.
For the ladies, Jo Shelmerdine has moved into first place in the U40s and Dominique Searle in the masters after they both finished highly at Survival of the Fittest. Dom came first lady at Wembley which puts her top of the ladies masters even though she's only done two races and there are other women in there with three! Freya Martin jumps into second place in the ladies U40s table also with only two races under he belt with a phenomenal second place lady at the Spartan European Championships.
Finally in the men's masters, there's no change in the top spot as Shaun Wilde remains King of the oldies, but Andrew Appleton jumps into third. They should all be watching their backs though as Jason Burgess, Dave Rogers and Anthony Campbell would each only need 100 points or more in their third scoring event to take first.
