A Romford resident will be joining runners from all over the country in this year's second annual London Relay event this month.
Estelle Albertyn will be taking part in the event which runs from June 29 and July 28, to raise money for the Running Charity which gives support to young people facing homelessness.
As in the previous year, around 2,000 runners will complete 5K and 10K legs around the clock throughout July in central London.
