Lace up your trainers and stretch those legs – a Dagenham charity needs joggers and walkers for its annual fun run.

Registration is now open for the Run4Life race on Saturday, April 7.

Nearly 150 runners help raise funds for their favourite charities last year.

“This is our second year and we have something for everyone whether you’re a seasoned runner or completely new to running,” said organiser Ade Adesina.

“We are also looking for volunteers who would like to help out on the day whether it’s registering runners, monitoring traffic or first aiders.”

Participants can choose from either a 5km or 10km run.

The course starts outside Coventry University’s Dagenham campus, looping through Rush Green Road into Dagenham Road and Rainham Road North/Oxlow Lane.

Everyone aged 10 and above can take part with a £10 registration fee.

Visit to register.
