A Journal reporter and a fellow Gazette journalist have agreed to dress like women and run 10km for charity.

Reporters Tim Lamden and Jon Dean are leaving their dignity behind as they enter the third annual Great Drag Race, in which 200 men dressed in frocks and fishnets hare round Highbury Fields for charity.

Last year’s run raised £20,000 for Prostate Action and achieved a Guinness World Record with the longest line of dancing drag queens – a record they hope to smash this year.

As well as raising funds, the organisers hope to raise awareness of prostate cancer, which is the second most common cause of cancer death among men in the UK.

The run takes place on Saturday, from around 1pm. To sponsor our brave boys, visit www.justgiving.com/jonandlambo
