RUNNERS will take on the steep hill that leads to the Ashridge Estate in the 30th year of an annual half-marathon.
They will set off from Berkhamsted Cricket Club at 10am on Sunday, March 4, after the starting pistol is fired by town mayor Carol Green.
A five-mile fun run will begin 30 minutes later.
Organisers from the Berkhamsted Bulbourne Rotary Club have used the event to raise more than £250,000 for good causes since it was first set up in 1982.
Race director Peter Robertson said: “We are blessed with a terrific course and taking part is a great way to shake off the winter blues.”
