As part of the 30th Anniversary of the Limehouse Festival, 200 runners have taken part in the Almost 5k – a fun run introduced by the Limehouse Community Forum.
A thorough warm up by Dickside Fitness set the tone as the participants roared down the back roads of Limehouse, the Thames Path, King Edward Memorial Park, Tobacco Dock, And The Highway, before finishing at Limehouse Marina.
The run was followed by the Limehouse festival which included a fun day out for the community. The festival celebrates three decades and this year has been bigger and better with fun activities for young and old.
Limehouse Community Forum vice chair Lesley Balding and Paul Wells have been amongst the chief organisers of the festival, ‘It’s a beautiful day and the community is out to have a good day together,’ said Balding. Wells added, ‘Everybody’s taken part, enjoyed it, and got into the spirit of things. We’ve had a nice warm up, a nice warm down and to top it all off the weathers been great. Next year we hope to make it even more fun.’
