The St. Albans half-marathon is coming….


runners2Every year St Albans holds one of the largest charitable events in Hertfordshire, the St Albans Half Marathon. This day comprises of 4 events:  The Affiliated Half Marathon, The Walking Half Marathon, The Healthy Hearts Jog and the 1.5 Mile Children’s Fun Run.

This year’s big event will be held on Sunday 14th June and the annual turnout is over 4000 participants so St Albans is bracing itself for another big turnout.

The event is run by the British Heart Foundation in conjunction with St Albans Council Leisure Connection. Entry charges range between £3.00 to £16.00 depending on age and event.

Last year, St. Alban and St. Stephen Junior and Infant School won the prize for entering the most children (133 plus!) in the Fun Run!  We wish them good luck as they prepare for this year’s event.

The BHF urge St Albans residents to get training, get sponsored and come along to this great day out!
