Different faiths run side by side for Remembrance Day
Sprint, jog, run, or walk across the finishing line this Sunday with Sikhs in the City running club to commemorate Remembrance Day.
There will be three runs taking place, the full marathon at 7am, the half marathon from 8am, and then the 10km run that will begin at 9.30am.
Non-members of the club will have to pay £10 to take part and will meet at the junction of Woodford Bridge Road.
Organiser of the event Harmander Singh, 54, said: “It doesn’t cost very much to run, especially when compared to races across the world – it’s quite a fair deal”.
Harmander himself has run 78 marathons and in May this year, he was awarded Coach of the Year in the House of Commons.

Harmander said: “Running is the most anti-racist sport there is in my opinion and it’s something that you can do and enjoy”.
The route on November 3 will end at Roding Lane South and on completion of the run, runners will be given a medal by the club.
