St Albans Half Marathon

As the Main Benefiting Charity for the 2017 St Albans Half Marathon, we would be delighted if you joined us at the event on Sunday 11 June.

Whether you are interested in running the Half Marathon or 5K or taking part in the Walking Half Marathon or Fun Run, why not apply for one of our 50 free places and be part of the Rennie Grove Team?

By joining us and raising sponsorship you will help us to provide care for local families coping with cancer or other life-limiting illness. To reflect the fact that our care is based around families, we are creating a Rennie Grove Running Family for the event. As a member of our Running Family you will enjoy a great sense of team spirit along with the other benefits of being part of our team:   

  • Free entry into the St Albans Half Marathon (run or walk, 5k or fun run)
  • A Rennie Grove training vest (available from mid-Feb)
  • A training and sponsorship guidance pack
  • Access to a meet and greet marquee in the Runners’ Village
  • Private Rennie Grove Running Family facebook page

In return we would like you to pledge to raise a minimum of just £50 which could fund two hours of specialist nursing care in a patient’s home helping to keep patients at home surrounded by their families.  

If you would like to be part of the Rennie Grove Running Family, please email gemma.bateman@renniegrove.org your pledge for the amount you think you can raise, together with details of the event you would like to enter and size of t-shirt required, and I will send you the link and code to register for your free place (subject to availability).

As Oprah Winfrey once said "Running is the greatest metaphor for life, because you get out of it what you put into it."
