Hundreds of hardy runners braved the freezing cold to take part in the annual New Year’s Eve 10k in Little Downham today.

Icy gusts whipped through the villages of Little Downham and Pymoor as hundreds of runners lined up to take on the popular course ahead of their end-of-year celebrations.

The race started at 11am in Little Downham’s Main Street and took competitors on an undulated tour of the surrounding fens of Pymoor before heading back into the village for the finish.

Last year’s race was won by Aaron Scott, of Notts AC, who completed the course in 32mins 29secs.

First lady across the finish line was Eleanor Matthews, of CONAC, in 37mins 1sec.

Course and event record holders are Will Clarke, of Cambridge Tri Club, in 30mins 5secs, set in 2009, and Felicity Milton, of Woodford Green AC with Essex Ladies, in 34mins 20secs, also set in 2009.
