Frostbite Friendly League

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 (one day we will go metric!). 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.
