Runners smashed records at the Harold Wood Running Club’s annual five mile charity race and raised £4,000 for two local charities.
West Ham icon Sir Trevor Brooking kicked off the Harold Wood Running Club’s (HWRC) five mile race in Harold Wood Park on Sunday, October 7.
Tracy Giddings from the HWRC team said: “We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day for our charity race.
“The race was a phenomenal success and we have received nothing but praise for a well organised race.
“Sir Trevor Brooking kindly started our race and was happy to sign autographs and have photos with our runners - even a selfie on the start line.”
Rob Warner broke the club’s record with an incredible finishing time of 27.09 minutes and Joanne Reeves from the Havering 90 group finished first in the women’s group after 36.06 minutes.
Funds raised by the event will go to Havering Mind and the Alzheimer’s Society.
