Last weekend seen the return of the Frostbite Friendly League for March Athletic Club.

After a two-year absence due to Covid-19 restrictions, during which a virtual league was held instead, a full schedule is now back in place.

The first Frostbite race of the winter season was hosted by St Neots' Riverside Runners at Priory Park in St Neots.

However, the weather felt more like that from summer time - with glorious blue skies and a relatively dry course welcoming participants.

March had eleven seniors taking part in the five-mile race and ten racing in the 1.5-mile race.
