Organisers of the first Ashridge Half Marathon hope that this serene scene will entice enthusiastic athletes to sign up for next month’s event and boost numbers after a slow start.

So far fewer than 50 people have registered for the charity race which will raise vital fundsfor Tring-based Rennie Grove Hospice Care The maximum number of entries organisers can accept is 250.

Entry is just £17, but each participant is asked to raise £100 in sponsorship for the good cause.

The charity hopes that the chance to run through the beautiful Ashridge countryside will be a big draw for runners.

You can sign up to take part in the event, which takes place on Sunday, June 16, at www.ashridgehalfmarathon.org
