Dagenham 88 Runners took part in the virtual Orion Harriers John Clark Memorial Fell Race at the weekend.
Usually a fixture on the club’s busy calendar, with all races still cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic, organisers made it a virtual run.
The route was shared on Strava and members of clubs were able to complete it over a three-day period (June 12-14).

A club spokesperson said: “A few members managed to get lost in the forest, adding some distance and time to their results!
“As we continue with social distancing restrictions, virtual events are turning out to be a great way to keep the team united and running.”
