Councillor Ciaran White, who is the event organiser and works for Havering Mind, said: "After over two years of planning it is incredible to think that the event is less then two months away.

"We want this to be a great feelgood event, which the whole community can get behind and support.

"The run is an ideal way to not only raise important funds for charity but to show how physical activity can have a positive impact on a person's mental health and wellbeing."

To find out how you can support the event as a volunteer, contact Ciaran.White@haveringmind.org.uk or call 01708 457040.
