The race will take place in Abbots Langley on October 5 and includes routes of 3km, 5km and 10km.

Community fundraiser at Beating Bowel Cancer, Leanne Sinclair, said: “This is an opportunity for people to get involved in a local event and raise money for charity at the same time.

“Everyone who chooses to fundraise for Beating Bowel Cancer will be given a charity t-shirt or running vest plus some training hints and tips.”

Beating Bowel Cancer works to save lives from the UK’s second biggest cancer killer and the money raised from the Tough Ten will help the charity to raise awareness of bowel cancer and support patients and their families.

Each year more than 41,000 people across the UK are diagnosed with bowel cancer; however, if diagnosed early over 90 per cent of cases could be cured.
