Young Greenwich Park runners go extra mile for Greenwich and Bexley Community Hospice
Seven hundred children went the extra mile in Greenwich Park for a mini-marathon, which raised more than £26,000 for charity.
Supported by Natwest, the 2.62 mile fun run saw children aged from five to 16 raising money for the Greenwich and Bexley Community Hospice.
With musical performances from The Rock Choir, plus an energetic workout from Woolwich's Waterfront Leisure Centre fitness instructors, the day was a smashing success.
There were even guest appearances from the Pearly Queen of Greenwich and the Pearly King of Woolwich, who entertained the crowds and kept spirits high.
Community fundraiser Augusta Adu said: "Seeing all those children running together was an amazing sight, and it was fantastic to see their faces as they crossed the finish line to receive their medals.
"We want to thank each and every one of our marvellous mini marathoners."
