Harold Wood Running Club members marched to the Olympic Park and impressed in the second event of this year's ELVIS series.   

The event was well organised by East End Road Runners, under Covid restrictions, and there were some outstanding performances, as Chris King finished sixth in the senior male category and Alicia Gray third in the senior female category.

Allan Munns also knocked over four minutes off her previous effort on the course.

Josh Jenner and King both put in a great performance on Friday night at the Orion Harriers Fell race in some challenging conditions with the heavy rains and a mostly uphill course.

They finished 21st and 23rd, respectively, in a strong field of runners.
