Barking Road Runners tackled the Havering City Scramble 10K and Bridge Aquathlon at the weekend with most races still being cancelled due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
A handful of club runners tackled the City Scramble to fill the void and had to find clues to solve a puzzle and find the finishing location.

Runners can run a virtual London Marathon on Sunday, October 4.
