More than 2,500 runners and walkers took part in the 40th Daily Dispatch/SPAR Summer Fun Run on Sunday – double 2017’s entry.

Both races – the 4km and 8km routes – started at 9am from the Orient pools at the Esplanade.

Running couple Graham and Jurianne Claydon dubbed the event a “great success”.

“I run this as often as I can and I always enjoy it. It was great and it should continue every year because it is a good healthy lifestyle,” said Graham.

Candice Adonis ran with her son, now 13, for the second year in a row.

“I enjoy the route, and the atmosphere and spirit among the runners makes it fun.”

The George Randell marimba band, East London singer and MC Kerry Hiles and PnA Stationers mascot Penny added to the atmosphere, while a crew from Wild Coast FM broadcast live from the fun run.
