Louis Walshe from WGC saw off more than 400 others competitors in the annual Be a Gunner. Be a Runner fundraiser at the Emirates Stadium.

The day, which supports the Gunners’ global charity partner Save the Children, sees participants run around the North London stadium 10 times.

And 20-year-old Louis finished the 6.4km in 23 minutes and 23 seconds.

Louis is a track runner at St Mary’s University and put his experience to good use by comfortably beating his closest rivals.

After picking up a special trophy in recognition of his achievement, Louis revealed that he will be pushing for forthcoming UK trials.

To date, the event has raised more than £45,000, which will support Save the Children’s education projects in the UK and overseas, helping the poorest children get a better start in life and “giving them the chance to grow and fulfil their potential”.
