Fenland Running Club members participate in final Frostbite Friendly League race

The last Frostbite Friendly League event of the season took place at Jubilee Park in Huntingdon.

Thirteen runners from Fenland Running Club braved the saturated cross-country course in the continuous downpour of rain, to compete in the five-mile race.

The final Frostbite race showcased a celebration of camaraderie, determination and excitement for each of the 255 runners who took part.

The Frostbite Friendly League is a series of six “closed” running races for senior and junior runners from 16 road-running clubs based mainly around the Peterborough/ Cambridgeshire area.

Races are staged at four to five-week intervals on a Sunday morning during the winter months from October to March (hence Frostbite) and were formed in 1988.

It is a great incentive to get out and run in the winter months.

Thanks to all the clubs and volunteers for organising the Frostbite Friendly League this season in what has been extremely challenging weather.

Fenland Running Club is a vibrant community of passionate runners dedicated to promoting fitness, camaraderie, and a love for running.

The club encourages runners of all levels to join and participate in various events throughout the year and meet every Tuesday and Thursday each week in Wisbech.
