Swansea Harriers’ Matthew Rees was the winner 12 months ago in a time of 33 minutes 49 seconds and has been a popular figure since his amazing gesture in helping fellow runner David Wyeth at the Virgin Money Giving London Marathon two years ago.

His club teammate Marc Hobbs followed in runners up spot (34:31) with Port Talbot Harriers’ Ben Williams crossing in third (35:03) to make up the top three and win the West Wales Road Running Championships medals in the process.
