This was his 84th title race win and in doing so also set a new over-60s course record thanks to his finishing time of 39:47.

Tony said: “It was near perfect conditions but it was a bit of a tester.

“I was a little apprehensive going into this race carrying a sore throat.

“However all ended well with me being the first over-60 to record a time inside 40 minutes on this course in its 27th year of the races history.”
