McDonnell claimed first place in a blistering time of one hour, 16 minutes and ten seconds, while team-mate Stephen Marks finished 15 seconds further back (1:16:25) to complete a brilliant one-two for the team.

Daniel Williams also put in a strong performance, coming home in eighth place in a time of 1:23:10 to ensure there were three R&N athletes in the top ten.




Sally Baker turned in another fantastic performance and finished as the third-fastest female, running an impressive 1:29:18 and finishing 33rd overall.

Just ahead of her was R&N’s Richard Thomas who finished the race in a very respectable 1:28:51.
