***London Marathon Update***
Virgin have changed the rules for allocating club places so unfortunately we only get one club place this year. Disappointing though this is your odds of getting a club place are still better than the odds of getting a ballot place I'm sure. So far I have had expressions of interest from, Pauline Stocker, Tara Dundon, Katy Burgin, Bryan Humphreys and Lee Brooks. Does anyone else want to throw their hat in? The deadline for expressions of interest is the end of this month, if you are interested you need to let me know by emailing me Once the deadline is passed I will be checking eligibility at which point I will need proof of rejection and then a draw will be held.

04/10/2015  Frostbite Friendly League, Priory Park, St Neots  details

With 84 runners taking part, Huntingdonshire AC got a great start to the Frostbite League cross country season with a team win for the Junior section and second place for the Seniors. Competing against 14 other clubs over the 1.5-mile course at Priory Park, St Neots, Joey Croft led the 217 other runners to win by 21 seconds in 6:50. Just 47 seconds later, Shannon Flockhart finished as first girl by 14 seconds in 8th place overall. Oliver Pocklington (16th in 7:56), Charlie Evans (17th in 7:56) and Seb Darnell (27th in 8:20) closed out the scoring team. Hunts AC Juniors finished a healthy 26 points ahead of Nene Valley Harriers with 69 points with Riverside Runners placing 3d with 102 points. Riverside placed seven boys in the top 11 but had to wait for their first scoring girl to finish in 88th position. In the Senior race, after running a marathon the previous weekend and a 10,000m race two days later, Dave Connell was still able to summon up the strength to lead the 49-strong Hunts AC team to the runner-up position over the 5-mile course behind Nene Valley Harriers. Dave finished in 7th place out of 472 with 27:54, and was followed in by the men's team scorers - 19 Simon Margot 28:52, 28 Tom Walker 29:42, 33 Ian Gallagher 29:57, 35 Alex Smith 30:00, 36 Mo Khurshid 30:09, and 39th Wayne Gimblett 30:19. In the corresponding race last year, our final male scorer finished 105th. Mo Khurshid was the revelation for Hunts AC, having only joined two days earlier with no known form. Mo started very quickly in the race, running just behind Dave over the first third of the race. He eventually paid the price but it's only a matter of time before the 18-year-old improves his pace judgement. On the women's side, despite losing up to a minute during the race with an asthma attack, Siobhan Skinner still ran a minute faster than last year to lead the Hunts AC females in 112th place overall with 33:08. Despite falling over during the race and grazing her shoulder, Rachel Sweatt, running in her first-ever 5-mile race, finished next for Hunts AC in 117th (33:18) with Polly Smith closing in the scoring team in 129th with 33:39. Nene Valley Harriers won the team competition with 485 points but Hunts AC are in contention for the league title scoring 555 points. With Riverside Runner placing 3rd in the team event with 608 points, the gap to 4th place is wide and suggests that this may be a three-horse race over the winter months.
