There are only three days to go until Hammonds End Farm in Harpenden hosts the first-ever Farm Run on Sunday July 15 in aid of Rennie Grove Hospice Care, the local charity that cares for adults and children with life-limiting illnesses meaning that they can spend their last months and weeks in their own home surrounded by their family and friends.

Herts Ad group editor Matt Adams and reporter Franki Berry have taken the bull by the horns and signed up for the 5K agricultural-themed obstacle course for adults and over 10s that also has an extreme hill option for the more energetic participants seeking a tougher challenge. There is also a 1K fun run alternative for all the family.

“We are looking forward to seeing what the course has in store for us,” said Matt, who added: “It will be fun and a great way of supporting such an inspiring local charity.”

Anyone of any ability is invited to take part and enjoy the elaborate obstacle course in the farm’s beautiful, traffic-free, open countryside.

Kate Grigg, head of fundraising at Rennie Grove said: “We guarantee that everyone who attends will enjoy the run, the obstacles and the farm-related theme and still be back home in plenty of time to relax and enjoy the Word Cup Final!

“We cannot thank the Roberts family enough for their generosity in letting us use their farm for Rennie Grove’s newest fundraising event.”

Registration is open until midday on Friday July 13 or you can sign up on the day from 9.30am.“So no time to be sheepish – round up the herd and join us for what promises a fun day down on the farm for all the family,” urged Matt.
