A rallying cry proved inspiring for March Athletic Club as they leapt up the Frostbite League standings. 

After round one disappointment, 35 senior and 11 junior runners helped the club progress in their divisions at Ferry Meadows in Peterborough.

With near-perfect running conditions, the seniors jumped to eighth whereas the juniors stayed 10th overall. 

Newcomer Andrew Jakeman was first March runner home in 28:24 in the five-mile cross country race, ahead of Liam Lambert and Toni Alcaraz.

Archie Bullman crossed first for the juniors in 8:54, ahead of Archie McLure – first girl home was Sacha Bland. 

In the 10k Bonfire Burn race, Andy Cole completed the multi-terrain route in 38:51 and second in his age category.
