It wasn’t the only success though as Becca Hayden was the third senior woman to finish in 1:12:15, a time also good enough for ninth overall in the women’s race.

It was her first time over the course and she said: “From start to finish the marshals were very supportive, and the course was hilly but very lovely, combining the town with the countryside.

“I would definitely recommend it. It’s a great way to end the year.”

For Chris Jones Buntingford marked his first road race since surgery in October to fix a groin injury.

And so he was naturally happy with his progress as he finished in 1:02:13 for 22nd overall.

His first goal in 2019 is a spring marathon.
