Many found their normal routine on Remembrance Sunday disrupted this year but one runner from Saffron Striders was still able to take in a number of war memorials – and raise money for charity.
Kate Holden ran 11k to raise money for Blesma, the limbless veteran’s charity, with her route taking her to the memorials at Bartlow, Hadstock and Linton.
It was part of a nationwide event with the charity keen to raise £6,000.

The club are keen to encourage as many as possible to hit the streets and trails again with all other running events again postponed.
