Meeting for the first time in a 10K after their duel in June when Julius Farley upset defending champion Reuben J. A. Stoby, the two rivals duked it out again on Saturday October 8, 2016 in the fourth race of the Ceres Juices 10K Series on Beef Island.

On the distaff side, Katrina Lindsay won the battle with Rosmond Johnson.

Farley set the early pace and enjoyed a lead of about 50 metres before Stoby reeled him in after two miles and then pulled away shortly after the turnaround to win in 40:06. Farley finished second in 41:15 while Guy Williamson took third in 45:16.

Mark Harrison was fourth and Adrian Dale fifth.

Both Farley and Stoby have two wins and a second place finish, with the final race of the series on November 5, 2016 being the deciding encounter.

Lindsay clocked 51:58 while Johnson placed second in 53: 09. Third was Rachel Mayo-Smith in 55:07.
