This is the sixth 5km run to take place on Therfield Heath, and organiser Lisa Thompson hopes people will go along to support the cause in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust.

Lisa said: “We start the planning in January, and we are lucky that we have businesses in the town willing to sponsor us every year to make this happen.

Last year’s iteration raised £15,500 for the Teenage Cancer Trust, and since 2012 Lisa said they have raised about £100,000 in all.
