Runners dressed as pigs and cows are wanted to take part in a 5km race in aid of Islington’s only farm.

Freightliners Farm in Sheringham Road, Holloway, invites you to don a onesie and join the herd jogging through the boroughs streets in an attempt to raise £20,000.

The money raised on the day will go towards looking after the cows and pigs at the farm, the largest beasts that are kept at the smallholding.

The race is limited to 100 cows and 100 pigs and onesies are provided once you’ve chosen your side.
