A number of Dagenham 88 Runners tackled the Bluebell five-mile run at the weekend among various other running events.
The off-road run goes through 92 acres of woodland and meadows on the Little Haven Reserve in Thundersley in a bid to raise funds for Essex Wildlife Trust.

Meanwhile, clubmates Joel Denning (53.35) and Mick Brown (57.46) both took part in the Havering Tri Duathlon at the Olympic Velopark.
The event started with a two-mile (two-lap) first run then a 10-mile (10-lap) bike section before finishing with a one-mile (one-lap) final run.
Other members enjoyed the Ox Races, which is three days of off-road races, starting with a night run (The Dark Ox).
The Ox Frolic follows on the Saturday, either for solo or teams, with laps of 10.5km, or the challenging Ox 50 which is completing enough laps to hit the 50-mile mark.
The weekend is finished off with the Light Ox on the Sunday which is a quarter lap.
