Take part in North Hertfordshire’s First AONB Great Marathon


Do you love beautiful scenery and being out in the great outdoors? Then why not come and be part of North Hertfordshire’s first Area of Natural Beauty (AONB) Marathon and raise money for Garden House Hospice Care on Sunday, June 2nd.

There are three distances to choose from - a full marathon, half marathon or 10km and entrants can decide their own pace and walk, run or jog in one of the most scenic events in Hertfordshire.

Hospice Event Organiser, Jake Amos said: “ We are hoping that this event will raise £50K for Garden House Hospice Care. It will be a great event to take part in as there are three distances to choose from, you don’t need to be a runner to do it  - entrants can walk, as the cut off times have been designed to allow for as many people as possible to take part.

The landscape and scenery is going to be stunning at that time of year and some of the views you’ll get to see are breath-taking.

“The event will be chip-timed and all entrants will get a t-shirt and medal for participating and fantastic on-course support.”

Following the recent success of the Garden House Hospice Care Muddy Mayhem event, the Hospice is offering an early bird fee for the Marathon and Half Marathon entrants until midnight, Sunday, March 10th – entry costs will be Marathon (£35), Half Marathon (£25) and 10km (£20).

For those who are looking for some luxury after tackling the various distances, entrants can avail of a VIP option for £100pp -this will include access to their own area to relax post-race, a bottle of bubbles and canapes, a free massage, as well as a goody bag to take away!

However, participants are also being incentivised to raise as much sponsorship as possible  - target amounts raised will mean entrants qualify for VIP treatment.

Organiser Jake Amos added: You can enter online as standard entries or as a VIP entry, but if you fundraise and hit certain targets, you will be upgraded to VIP and you also get more rewards!

“We are encouraging as many people as possible to take part  - the biggest thing  is that you’ll be contributing towards the Hospice, to which we are all massively grateful.”
