Two Harpenden Arrows took part in the UK’s first ever blindfold run at the Olympic Park over the weekend.

The event is organised by the Royal London Society for the Blind (RLSB) who aimed to raise over £40,000. Arrows members Georgie Hamilton and Charlotte Heatley were among the runners.

They ran as a pair and Hamilton led the blindfolded Heatley to a sub-30 minute time. They raised £300.
