Poppy Runs - Powering veterans recovery

Poppy runs took place across the country over the weekend with thousands of people running, jogging and walking to fundraise and help power veterans’ recovery.

The 5k runs are open to people of all ages and abilities, and even some four legged furry friends took part.

We went down to Victoria Park in London to speak to some of the runners to find out why they were taking part on a chilly Saturday morning.

If you would like to get involved there is still time with events taking place this coming weekend in Birmingham, Durham, Nottingham and Southampton. Sign up here.

If there isn’t a poppy run in your area you can sign up for My Poppy Run and do a run in your own time.
