Thousands of runners arrived just after eight o clock this morning to participate in Havering’s half marathon organised by Havering Mind.
It proved to be an amazing event with a fantastic community spirit felt by all and even the rain held off!
Event organiser Ciaran White told the crowds that he had been organising this event for three years along with his grandad’s help and what a success it has proven to be.
Runners from many different clubs came to participate and to raise money for their chosen charity. Local dignitaries came out to support this brilliant event.
Romford MP Andrew Rosindell told the Havering Daily, ‘I was honoured to be at the launch of Havering’s Half Marathon organised by Havering Mind. It is a truly fantastic event for our borough where thousands of pounds will be raised for charity.
‘Well done to everybody involved, it has been incredibly successful and in particular to Councillor Ciaran White for organising this amazing event.’
The Time FM team were also running today to help raise money for Havering Mind. Well done to Lorna and Hayden and the rest of the crew for taking part and raising two thousand pounds!
