ATHLETICS: BASILDON looks set to be the latest venue for one of the popular parkrun franchises.

Organisers are working on plans to launch the 5km event in Pitsea’s Northlands Park in April.

Parkruns are 5km runs that encourage entrants to race against the clock rather than each other.

The latest Southend parkrun was led home by Havering Mayesbrook’s Ian Anthony (16m 55s) with the first woman being Leigh on Sea Striders’ Andrea Hughes (20m 34s).

For athletics see the THURROCK GAZETTE every Thursday
