Knebworth jog to combat killer

Runners with heart are being urged to sign up to a life-saving race.

The British Heart Foundation is calling for runners, joggers and walkers to take part in this year’s Knebworth Park Jog to raise money to combat heart disease.

The event, now in its sixth year, saw 920 people tackle the five and 10 kilometre course last year, raising almost �30,000. The BHF are hoping to do even better on Sunday February 26.

Organiser Melanie Blackman said: “It’s going to be really, really exciting with over 1,000 people getting together. It’s one of the first running events of the season, so people use it as a training exercise, and some people come along as a country walk with their dogs. But they will get muddy!”
