A stampede of runners sprinted to the finish line of the British Airways charity fun run which raised more than £11,000 for Cancer Research UK.

More than 300 adults ran the 5km course with as many as 85 children taking part in the 'little legs' race.

Entertainment included X Factor and I'm A Celebrity contestant Stacey Solomon who performed a number of classic hits.

Miss Solomon said: “Cancer Research UK is such an amazing charity.

"Cancer affects all of us and it’s great to be part of something, raising awareness and raising money.” 

The event which is now in its 16th year was held at the airline's Heathrow headquarters last Thursday (31).

The men’s race was won by Adam Moquet, with a time of 17 minutes and 36 seconds, while Lindsey Carr was the quickest woman round the course, with a time of 25 minutes 10 seconds.
