East London Runners men's team won the opening round of a regional running series.

The team took the honours in the first event of the East London Five Interclub Series (Elvis) held in Dagenham.

Last year's competition was cancelled due to Covid-19 and the club said it was great for the racing to take place again.

Patrick Brown was the club's first male runner to complete the five-mile course in 29 minutes 28 seconds.

Fabrizio Stefanoni followed three seconds further back, while Paul Woodmansey, Robert Spread, Scott McMillan and John Henry also scored points.
