Jonathan fought a keen battle throughout with the eventual winner Russell Bentley (Eryri Harriers) and James Logue to claim a welcome place on the podium. The winning time was 1 hour 18 minutes and 18 seconds, with James recording 1.24.29, and Jonathan 1.28.30, and 2nd place in his MV40 age category.

After the race Jonathan commented: 'What a stunning route and even though it makes racing tough when there is no one close to race, but good for the head even if the body is suffering.'
