GALLERY: Knebworth runners raise thousands to combat killer

Hundreds of runners put their heart into a race to raise thousands to combat a deadly disease.

Generous runners and walkers made the most of the spring-like weather on Sunday to tackle a five and 10k course around Knebworth Park in aid of the British Heart Foundation.

Participants of all ages warmed up to the sounds of a rock choir before the starting gun sent them on their way.

The organisers of the event, now in its sixth year, estimate the run will raise around �30,000 to tackle heart disease. Click the gallery on the right to see the runners in action.
