Romford runner prepares for London run


A Romford runner is fundraising ahead of the British 10k London Run this summer.

Lee Mayes is hoping to raise £1,000 for SOS Africa by completing his latest run in July.

Lee, 28, an electrician in London, said: “I have completed a few runs in the run up to the British 10k London Run.

“The most recent was the London Marathon and I have also done the Brentwood and Havering 20k runs. I am training all the time, and try to run about 10k a day.”
