Luke Brown and Kanina O’Neil of March AC shine in Storm Jorge during final Frostbite round at Jubilee Park, Huntingdon
The first day of March and spring is in the air, but no one told the winds of Storm Jorge, which made the final round of this season’s Frostbite series another challenging race.
March AC had 18 seniors and 13 juniors running in the sixth race at Jubilee Park, Huntingdon.
For the seniors, Luke Brown completed the season in strong form, once again being the first March runner home, in 17th place, in 34:55.
Kanina O’Neil was in her second race for March and again was the first club lady home, in 42:33. The seniors were eighth on the day and finished the season 12th overall.
The juniors had a strong finish to the season, with Louis Benningfield and Sasha Bland again the first March boy and girl home. The team came sixth on the day and a very creditable fourth overall for the season.
Three March runners took on the Vitality Big Half, starting at Tower Bridge and taking in many of the famous London landmarks, before reaching the finish line at the Cutty Sark in Greenwich.
Andrew Wool had a superb run, completing the iconic course in 1:34:53, with March AC couple Tom and Suzanne Orr making up the travelling trio.
Suzanne managed to finish the race despite taking a tumble and having to be treated in a medic’s tent at mile five of the 13.1-mile race.
