Dozens of Arsenal fans braved treacherous conditions to raise money for charity by sprinting around the Emirates Stadium.

The football club’s annual fun-run in aid of its charitable arm The Arsenal Foundation took place in less-than-ideal weather on Saturday March 23.

That did not stop a large band of joggers from completing 10 laps around the stadium – a distance of 6.4km – with Ben Ladkin setting the fastest time of 26mins 18secs.

In the women’s race, Ruby Dixon retained her crown for the second year in a row, completing the run in just under 33 minutes.

Meanwhile, six-year-olds Matthew Agar and Amelia Ball were the first boy and girl to complete the one-lap Junior Gunners race for under-sevens.

Zeeshan Anjum, aged 14, and Natasha Cohen, nine, took the honours in the two-lap race for seven to 14-year-olds.
