The Thunder Run is an endurance race where runners compete in teams, pairs or solo over a 10k looped cross country course.

Jordan beat the old record by 12.4 miles, clocking up an incredible 22 laps and 136 miles.

“I’m over the moon to win so decisively and break a long standing course record in the process,” he said.

“I’m 52 years old and although I often place well in races and have come first in my age group in races such as the St Albans Half marathon and the Ridgeway Challenge, I have always had the ambition to win a race outright.”
