Running The 2014-15 Frostbite Friendly League culminated on Sunday and Fenland Running Club were in amongst the action.

The sixth and final race of the series was held at Hinchingbrooke School, with a windy and very muddy route through Hinchingbrooke Park.

Once again Fenland Running Club suffered from the absence of the faster club members but the sterling efforts of the 10 scoring runners was still enough to claim a creditable 11th place on the day and leapfrog prestigious Cambridge and Coleridge and improve the club’s final position from 13th after five races to 12th overall. Awards for runners of the series went to Tim Chapman, who has consistently finished amongst top scorers in all six races, and Cheryl Chapman, who has not just enjoyed all six races but gave her all in this last race, realising she would be the third scoring lady.

Results: Dan Wate 61st 33.33; Tim Chapman 81st 34.18; Rod Sinnott 88th 34.48; Tom Richards 100th 35.30; Colin Simpson 101st 35.34; Paul Wiegand 109th 35.45; Clive Harrod 119th 36.03; John Chapman 134th 36.31; Maire Irlam 155th 37.30; Adam Chown 182nd 38.48; Ian King 240th 42.12; Ann Trett 265th 43.28; Cheryl Chapman 310th 48.00; Jane Greenwood 321st 49.40; Alison Patterson 327th 51.01. 357 finishers.
