Finlay Wild Sets New Records for Welsh 3000ers & Snowdon Horseshoe Newsflash

News just in - Runner Finlay Wild has set a new fastest time on the Welsh 3000ers, breaking a record that's stood for 31 years. Finlay's time of 4:10:48 finally betters Colin Donnelly's 4:19, a legendary achievement back in 1988.
