Cardiff's Nat Lane (pictured, right, on the victory podium) took third place and the bronze medal in the inaugural Commonwealth Trail Running Championship held in Anglesey today, 25th September.
Held over a multi terrain course of some 55k, including a stretch along the beach, to come third in a field of approximately 100 runners from the Commonwealth is a fine achievement for Nat who was representing Wales.
Former Cardiff stalwart Richie Gardiner, who is enjoying a spell of excellent form, went two better to take the gold medal with Andrew Davies second.
Congratulations to both Nat and Richie.
