As others were enjoying festive films and gorging on the final mince pies of the season youngsters braved the cold to compete in a free 2km fun run.

Up bright and early on Sunday morning, 14 children took part in a timed 9am run at Harrow Lodge Park, Hornchuch.

Organiser, Dave Keeley, who also leads a running club at Benhurst Primary School, Hornchurch, said: “It went really well, we had a really good turn out considering the time of year. Running is a great new year’s resolution for parents and children alike.”
