The Frostbite Friendly League is a series of six “closed” running races for senior and junior runners from 16 road-running clubs based mainly around the Peterborough area. The races are staged at 4-5 week intervals on a Sunday morning during the winter months from October to March (hence Frostbite). Each of the 6 races is hosted by one of the participating clubs. The senior races are all between 5 and 6 miles and the junior races are less than 1.5 miles. The terrain varies from race to race and may be anything from a wet and muddy cross-country to road running through a town centre. The races are very well attended and each race regularly attracts over 250 runners.
Each club may enter as many runners as they want into each of the races. Scoring is based on the finish position of each team’s first 10 seniors to finish and first 5 juniors to finish with trophies awarded to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place teams at the end of the series.
This league is open only to senior and junior members of the 16 participating clubs. If you wish to run in any of the races you must be a member of one of the clubs as strictly no guests are allowed.
The emphasis in these races is on participation and enjoyment of all runners whatever their ability or sex and friendly rivalry between clubs.
