March AC competitors were among the more than 550 hardy runners who braved the howling wind and rain to take part in an annual New Year’s Eve 10km race in the Fens.

Gusts in excess of 20mph whipped through the villages of Little Downham and Pymoor but the athletes kept their heads down and ploughed forward.

The winner of the race was Aaron Scott, of Notts AC, who completed the course in 32mins 29secs, followed by Ben Russell, of Liverpool Harriers, in 33mins 9secs and Thomas Stevens, of Cambridge and Coleridge, in 34mins 12secs.

At 72-years-of-age, Lavinia Seward, of March AC, was the oldest female competitor registered to take part.

She finished the race in one hour 2:37 minutes to finish in 489th place overall.
