PAUL Fernandez stormed to victory in The Terminator race at Pewsey Vale, Wiltshire.

The Abingdon Ambler completed the approximately 11 miles multi-terrain event in 1hr 17mins 19secs.

Fernandez finished more than three minutes ahead of the second-placed runner, while White Horse Harriers’ Paul Jegou was third in 1.21.59.

This Sunday Fernandez will target his first Oxford Mail Cross Country League title when the final round takes place at Wittenham Clumps.

Fernandez leads the men’s rankings after four rounds.

The course was drier than in the past, but still featured its usual hazards such as a swamp, towering hills and a river.

Abingdon’s Carrie Bolton was first senior lady home in 1.44.44, with clubmate Sarah Matthews third vet 35 lady in 1.44.53.
