The organisers of the second annual Baldock 10k run are aiming to raise crucial cash for a children’s charity.

But time is running out if you want to secure your place in the race which includes on and off road sections around the villages of Newnham, Bygrave and Ashwell on Sunday, September 14.

The race is raising funds for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity, which helps rebuild and refurbish the hospital, provide up-to-date equipment and fund research into better treatments for children.

James Lunnon, chairman of Baldock Town Partnership which has organised the run in conjunction with Fit4thechallenge, said: “It’s such a fantastic cause and I’m looking forward to raising as much money as possible.”

GOSHCC senior fundraising manager Laura Savory said: “We’re so grateful to Baldock Town Partnership for their generosity and support.

“The money which is raised will help to make a huge difference to young patients and families from across the UK.”

The race starts at 10am, but runners are asked to be at the start line 15 minutes before.
