What I'm interested in, though is getting a sequence where most shots of runners coming at me, are in focus. Have you dont something like that?

NEX is not going to be good at that at all. You might get the first shot in focus. The benefit with the NEX 7 is that it has short shutter lag in electronic first curtain shutter mode, this means your runner shouldn't get too much time to move before the camera takes the image.

If you have both cameras try them with a couple runners and see if it will work or not, but I am guessing the NEX is not going to do well for your situation.  The NEX 6 should be better with the hybrid focus, but I have yet to see a good sequence of a runner or something with that camera.
