Fenland running trio finish in top 20 at Frostbite Friendly League event in Ramsey

THREE of Fenland’s top runners braved strong winds to finish inside the top 20 during Sunday’s 5.2-mile Frostbite Friendly League event at Ramsey.

Robin Parker, Jack Trow and Justin Kinsey of Fenland Running Club all excelled in blustery conditions despite large parts of the off-road race being completed in head-wind.

March Athletic Club runner Joe Bradshaw also shone as he stepped up from the junior league to finish 32nd in his first senior event. He was his club’s first runner home.

Trudy Sayell was the first lady home for Fenland in 104th while her female March AC counterpart - Karen Patterson - was her club’s first woman home in 142nd place.

Jack Simon crossed the line in 39th place and was March AC’s first junior home first in a time on 10.55 minutes. Chloe Blyth was the first junior lady home during the 1.5-mile race and came 46th in a time of 11.06 minutes.
