Barking Road Runners took part in the unofficial annual jaunt through London’s Royal Parks at the weekend.
This year’s event included Regents Park, Hyde Park and Green Park, with runners going at their own pace.
Faster runners doubled back to keep the pack together, while Barking’s Andrew Gwilliam took part in his second Met League event at Uxbridge, where he was inspired by the quality of the field.
Rory and Stuart Burr joined forces with Antony Leckerman at the Sikhs in the City 10k, ahead of the Dust to Dawn Ultra which takes place later this month.
Philip Ellul was first club member to finish at the latest Barking parkrun, in 18.10, with Rory Burr (22.06), Ron Vialls (22.15), Trevor Cooper (23.20), Andrew Hiller (24.00), Sally Bridge (24.06) all below the 25-minute mark.
