We are once again proud sponsors of the St Albans Half Marathon and are encouraging companies to enter teams of at least four runners to take part in our Corporate Challenge, which will see businesses from throughout the district competing against each other in either the 5K or half marathon.
To increase the competitive edge, the company team with the lowest aggregate score for their combined first four runners home will win £250 for a charity of their choice, a trophy and bragging rights within the business community for the next 12 months.
SA Law have entered a team of 16 for this year's race, look out for our red tshirts around the lakes!
It is estimated last year’s run, the 35th raised more than £145,000 for various charities. This time round the run will raise cash for Rennie Grove Hospice Care, a charity providing care and support for patients diagnosed with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses and their families.
Every year, through the 24/7 Hospice at Home service, Family Support services and a range of Day Services at Grove House, the charity gives thousands of patients the choice to stay at home, surrounded by their families and friends.
This year’s event will take place on Sunday, June 11, with runners starting and finishing in beautiful Verulamium Park. Runners will be under starter’s orders for 11am and finishers will receive a race T-shirt, medal, goodie bag, cooling ice lolly and hearty applause.
As well as the half marathon and 5K there will be a walking half marathon, wheelchair half marathon, and 1.5 mile children’s fun run.
Entrance for the half marathon costs £45 while it is £30 for the 5K. You can register by visiting the St Albans Half Marathon website here.
