Andi became the first athlete for twelve years to retain the senior men's title at the 2007 English Northern Cross Country Championships at Heaton Park, Manchester. The last runner to win back to back crowns was Rossendale Harrier, Dave Lewis, in 1994 and 1995.

In July 2009, Jones became the first male to win the Snowdon Race four times in a row. He missed the 2010 Snowdon Race to concentrate on the European and Commonwealth Marathon Championships, but returned in 2011 to record a narrow win over Scottish athlete Murray Strain, and won for a sixth time in 2013. He finished tenth in the 2010 London Marathon, the second best performing European man after Andrew Lemoncello.

Early in his career, Jones ran for East Cheshire Harriers, later moving to Salford Harriers and then to Stockport Harriers.
