March Athletic Club joined their friends over at Three Counties Running Club for their George Munday 10k race to commemorate Remembrance Sunday.

Last year the event was held virtually because of pandemic restrictions, so it was really special for runners to be back out racing in Leverington for this particular event again.

The race is preceded by a moving memorial service at the start line at 11:00 before the race gets under way.

Each year also sees a beautiful poppy themed medal awarded to race finishers.

It’s certainly a favourite race for the club, and has great potential for a fast time too, with a great flat Fenland course travelling from Leverington, out to Newton and then back again.

First home for March AC was Kanina O’neil, super strong as ever, who also managed to come in as second lady overall in 41:16:8.

Second across the lie for March was Tim Brammer in 42:21:4, closely followed by Dean Markillie.

March AC newcomer Henrik Stoner finished hot on the heels of Andrew Wool, in 5th place for the club after his superb debut in a March vest at Frostbite last weekend.

For Markillie, however, 10km were not enough for one day - he even ran all the way back to March after the race completed!
