Entries are now open for a brand new half-marathon through a scenic countryside beauty spot.

The off-road race is being staged by Tring-based Iain Rennie Grove House Hospice Care and will begin and end at Ashridge House on Sunday, June 16.

Entry is £17 and includes chip timing, an official Ashridge Half Marathon T-shirt, a medal at the finish line and water at various on-route refreshment points.

Participants are asked to raise £100 for the Tring charity. Director of fundraising and marketing Gillian Barnett said: “Unfortunately the entry fees only just cover our costs so raising sponsorship is so important if local patients are to benefit from the runners’ efforts.”
