Red run keeps life saver airborne

Runners saw red at the weekend in a race to raise cash for a life saver.

Fun runners dressed up for the red-themed 5k event around Fairlands Valley Park in aid of the Herts Air Ambulance on Sunday - the last day of national air ambulance week.

The star of the show, the Herts Air Ambulance made a special landing in the park, giving people the opportunity to see the helicopter up close meet the air crew.

Over �1,600 has been raised by the event so far with more sponsorship coming in to help keep the charity airborne.

Event manager, Wendy Marcon thanked all participants, marshals and running club Fairlands Valley Spartans for their support.
