There was no love lost from the weather, but March AC runners were not to be deterred in round four of the inter-club Frostbite League. 

Despite freezing temperatures, 26 senior and eight junior runners competed in five-mile and 1.5-mile routes for the club, who sit in fifth spot, over Valentine’s weekend of February 13-14. 

Luke Brown crossed first for March seniors, while Kanina O’Neil was first woman home and third overall in 32:41.

Meanwhile, Luke Cumbridge and Molly Cook were first junior boy and girl to finish the course. 

It was not a weekend for personal bests, but each runner showed grit and determination to carry on, as they return to league action between March 13-14.
