Frostbite #5 Sunday 4th February
Please note change of venue and time
The next Frostbite fixture will be on Sunday 4th February at Nene Park, Peterborough. The junior race starts at 10:15am and the senior race at 10:45am, owing to another event taking place in the park later that day. All welcome, just bring your club vest. Trail shoes probably best but there are some on-tarmac sections of the course. Post for lift requests on the Endurance Runners section on Facebook. After a fantastic turnout at the first 3 races we are still doing well in the league, so will be great if we can get as many out as possible again. The re-scheduled race 3 will take place on Sunday 18th February (Hinchingbrooke Park).

Cambs County XC Champs
Apologies for failing to report on the County Championships. Results are now in, thanks to my mystery correspondent (who may well be Ian R?), and it was a white-and-blue party, with wins everywhere. New County Champions are Isaac Morris (U13), Ellie Loosley (U13), O J Parmenter (U15), Alex Hampson (U20), Glyn Smith (V70), Thomas Keen (U17), Victoria Knight (Senior & V35) and Joan Lasenby (V55). Three clean-sweeps of the podium places this year; in the past, it's been the girls, but this time it's the boys - under 13, 15 and 17. Numerous other podium positions and countless fine performances - see the results listing for the full glory.
Frostbite League - March
In case you missed the results from the Frostbite at March, they're now up. We didn't field any juniors (an ongoing mystery to me), but had a very healthy senior turnout for what is a fair hike across the fenland. By some freak of nature, the wind didn't blow and the mud was mostly firm (climate change deniers, explain that one!). Matt Fox was a brilliant third, but probably won't mind if I single out George Schwiening's first place in the female race, and an astonishing sixth overall, as the highlight. A so-so eleventh place in the match score for C&C leaves us sixth in the table. February is a big month, with the rescheduled Hunts AC race at Hinchingbrooke on the 18th, but first up is the trip to the superb woodland course at Bourne on the 4th. Mark the dates.

Frostbite #4 Sunday 14th January
Just a reminder that it's the fourth Frostbite race (although #3 was postponed) on Sunday 14th January at HMP Whitemoor, March. The junior race starts at 10:15am and the senior 11am, and there will be some people leaving from the track. Probably best to post on the Endurance Runners section on Facebook for lift requests. All welcome, just bring your club vest and wear trail shoes. After a fantastic turnout at the first 2 races we are still doing well in the league (Hinchingbrooke has been rescheduled), so will be great if we can as many out as possible again. It is a great course, with a mixture of farm track and trail. Parking instructions attached. See you there!
