Harold Wood Running Club members showed their animal instincts at the latest Raphael parkrun.

Tony Rawson celebrated his 50th parkrun, earning a red t-shirt, and decided on an animal-themed race.

And with conditions being cold and frosty on Saturday morning, with the lake frozen over, some of the costume worn by members proved most useful for warmth.

But they did not slow down three of the club’s women, as Shelley Allen set a new personal best of 25 minutes 40 seconds, while Kate Adams (28.45) and Parisa Skeldon (30.18) also went quicker than before.

Members will be taking part in a Christmas-themed parkrun this weekend.
