March Athletic Club travelled to Hunts AC for the Frostbite League's third winter race.

Hinchingbrooke Country Park played host to the event, which was made up of a muddy and slippery five-mile woodland park trail.

March had 31 seniors and 11 juniors take part, with the latter group taking on a 1.5-mile track. They had a great day and finished in seventh place.
