This Sunday (October 24) saw the return of the Frostbite friendly league for March Athletic Club after a two-year absence due to Covid. 

Last year saw a virtual league, but this year it’s back with the joy of running along woodland courses with mud and tree root obstacles. 

The first winter race was hosted by St Neots’ Riverside Runners at Priory Park in St Neots.
