Frostbite Friendly League

BRJ have historically hosted the 6th & final event of this Winter Cross Country series. Unfortunately, the persistent heavy rain in recent months meant that 2 Frostbite events, due to be hosted by Bushfield & Hunts AC, were cancelled but it was not possible to re-schedule them. Thankfully, the weather leading up to our home fixture at Jubilee Park had shown some improvement so it was possible to stage the event.
Unfortunately, from very early on race day the heavy rain made an unwelcome return making the course even more muddy for the runners & somewhat unpleasant for the numerous Volunteers & Marshals. As the event coincided with Mothers Day & with the poor weather forecast the number of competitors were unsurprisingly slightly reduced. Big thanks go our to Frostbite Co-ordinator, Claire Few, for her superb efforts on our behalf across the year.
The full results can be accessed on the Frostbite Friendly League website. The good news is that you don’t have to wait too long to get your next Frostbite “Fix”. The 2024/2025 Frostbite season starts again in early October.
There were 91 Junior finishers overall, with the BRJ squad consisting 4 Boys & 4 Girls. Jack Scott in his debut run at the venue, lead home our squad in 15th position. Jack was closely followed by Iris Purser in 20th position & 4th Girl overall in a Venue PB. Iris became a 1st Claim member of Hunts AC in January 2024 but because she had already completed a Frostbite event as a BRJ member during the 2023/2024 season league rules meant she could not compete for Hunts AC until next season. Thankfully, Iris opted to represent BRJ rather than not compete at all. The event saw 1 Venue PB & 5 Venue Debuts
The 5 team scorers were Isaac Friswell, Iris Purser, Jack Scott, Amelie Ward & Ethan Ward. Our squad secured 5th place overall on the day, missing 4th place by just 3 positions, & finishing in 6th place overall of the 14 teams in the 2023 / 2024 competition. A great overall finish for what is a very a young squad.

Club Chair, Claire Ashton, completed her first Frostbite since February 2022 but unluckiest BRJ’er was Ian Lasseter who missed out on a Venue PB by just 3 Secs.
