The senior race covered five miles from the club's Elm Road base, while the juniors ran a 3k course as both races took in views of the nature reserve off Longhill Road and the riverbank of the Twenty Foot Drain.

On race day dawned a welcome appearance of the sun, making running through the mud a more appealing prospect.

March AC fielded 31 senior runners, 17 juniors and provided all race day marshals.

First senior male home for the club was Luke Brown who finished in an impressive 24th place with a time of 31:54, while Hannah Daniels was the first lady home in 41:24.

The seniors finished 10th out of 16 teams and are now 11th overall in the league. The juniors came sixth out of 15 teams, retaining fifth spot in the league.

Louis Benningfield earned the boys a superb seventh place out of a 167-strong field, with Sasha Bland crossing as first girl home.

March AC would like to thank all the clubs involved in the league and for making it an enjoyable and successful event.
