A running club which meets in Clayhall is gearing up for its latest event.

Sikhs in the City is staging the Summer Samosa Ultra Challenge on June 26, with entries open until June 4.

The club's Harmander Singh said the name comes from the food they normally give out at stations during runs.

Sikhs in the City also holds a Dawn to Dusk event in December.

Harmander takes up the story: "Because of Covid, two years ago we had to postpone the December one and run it in June.

"It was quite a success. We are running it again in summer but we decided to rename it."

The Summer Samosa Challenge will be run over a course measuring around 2km and participants can choose 10km, 22km, marathon and ultra (at least 25 laps) distances.

The medal participants will receive for completing their chosen distance
