Earlier today (Friday) organisers of the City Park Run in Craigavon announced the postponement of their birthday celebration due to take place on Saturday.

In a statement they said: "As a mark of respect to the Peden family we will not be having our birthday party tomorrow.

"We would ask that as many as possible of you wear a black running vest or tee shirt to show your own support for Roisin and the other members of the Peden family at this tragic time.

"However the party is not cancelled, just postponed, and we do hope to have a proper party before the end of the month. If you have already baked something then bring it along and we can donate it to a local charity in Jonny's memory."
