Four runners from Ilford Athletics Club completed a delayed Remembrance 10km run last weekend.

The Essex Remembrance Run had been due to take place on Remembrance Sunday in November but was postponed until December 13 due to the second lockdown.

It was held around Debden Airfield, near Saffron Walden,  and the first Ilford AC athlete to complete the course was Ryan Holeyman in 36 minutes and 51 seconds.

He came in 13th place overall from around 200 competitors.

Ryan's dad Danny finished in 38 minutes and 25 seconds for 24th position and 11th in the male veteran over 40 category.
