Many March AC runners got a first taste of championship running for a chance to represent their county. 

Thirteen junior members took part at the Cambridgeshire Athletic Association’s cross-country championships in St Neots on January 9. 

Those involved ran 2-5km courses, to earn a chance of representing Cambridgeshire at the inter-county cross-country championships in Loughborough later this year. 

Under 11 boys Archie and Alfie McClure and Rowan Whittlesey achieved a team bronze medal for March. 

Luke Cumbridge finished seventh in the under 15 race and now awaits a possible invite to the inter-county event.
