East End Road Runners hosted their largest 5k event to date at the Olympic Park last week.

Around 400 runners completed the Epic Run, with 14 out of 42 East Enders setting personal bests, and another 50 acted as volunteers.

Seven club members also tackled the hills of the Fell Run in Chingford, while various others took on various distances at other events.

Abida Peters ran the Swansea half marathon, while Trudy Sharam completed the Cheddar Gorge event.

Alice Cliverd was in action at the Giants Head marathon, as Fraser Smart ran the Lairig Ghru race and international members Seth and Tess Healy took on the New South Wales cross-country 10k.
