A trip to the capital was the order of the day for Three Counties runners as they reflected upon landmark moments of the past two years.

With Covid, this year's London Landmarks half-marathon event was re-themed to commemorate and reflect upon the moments of 2020 and 2021, as well as the actions of key workers.

A mile of the route was dedicated to running in memory of a loved one who passed away during the pandemic.

Some of the members also ran to help raise money for charities.

Rod Sinnott, Lee Johnson, Sarah Johnson, Sarah Melton-Whitelam, Steve Whitelam, Lorraine Parker and Gary Ingrey ran for the Pituitary Foundation.
