Former Olympic Javelin Champion and 'I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here' TV contestant, Fatima Whitbread was the star attraction at the Great Baddow Charity Races held in Great Baddow Recreation Ground on Sunday, May 20th 2012.

The races (now in their 28th year) consist of a 10 mile race for serious competitors and a 2 mile fun run around Great Baddow. The weather was cool and overcast, considered to be perfect conditions for the runners.
