The third run will take place at Redbourn leisure centre on Sunday, May 21.

Event organiser and parent Ruth Upjohn said: “We are working hard to make this year’s run even more fun than last year.

“It’s fabulous to see local families enjoying the benefits of sport together while raising huge amounts of money for charity.”

There will be 1km, 3km, and 5km races open for runners of all ages.
