Harold Wood Running club members helped raise money for St Luke’s Hospice in Basildon this weekend.

Hundreds of runners dressed up as superheroes and run a five kilometre fun run around Lake Meadows Park in Billericay on Sunday.

Ines Nadal, who dressed up as Mrs Incredible, led the way for the club and finished third in the women’s category in a time of 20.53.

The club runners also took part in the local park run for the first-time ever on the Saturday morning.

A club spokeswoman said: “It was a beautiful morning for a 5k in the park, there were 218 runners in total, and the course was two laps.

“Most people had made an effort so it was fun to see Batman, Superman, wonder woman, Incredible Hulk etc running around the park.

All runners received a medal for completing the run and there were given out for first, second and third place runners in the men’s, women’s, boys and girls categories.
