Last year 1,040 supporters took part, raising more than £46,000 for the charity, and this year the target for the February 15 fundraiser is to top £50,000.

Runners can take part in either a 5km or 10km route around the stately home’s famous parkland in an event which is backed by the Comet and open to people of all abilities.

BHF regional event organiser Hayley Reynolds said: “We’re very excited about this year’s Knebworth Park Run and hope to see many enthusiastic people eager and willing to take on the challenge.

“There has been a slight change in the route this year and we will have more entertainment at the run so it would be a fantastic year to bring spectators.

“The run is the perfect way to support the nation’s heart charity, save lives and improve your own heart health at the same time.”

This will be the 10th time the race has taken place at Knebworth House.

The route is cross country, mostly on grass with some inclines, but with the family friendly atmosphere you will hear encouragement from all, however you choose to get round the course.

Entry is £12 for adults and £6 for children.
