Runners on their marks for 30th Abbots Langley Tough Ten
Runners are gearing up for the 30th anniversary of the Abbots Langley Tough Ten next month.
Thirty years ago the original ten-mile rice was organised to raise cash for MENCOP, a local police charity supporting mentally and physically handicapped children.
Today, runners will race for local charities, such as Red Cross, hospices, the village surgery and clubs such as the Monday Club and community centre.
Over the years, more than £250,000 has been raised and residents have benefited from brand new equipment to improve their quality of life.
Abbots Langley Tough Ten organisers were able to help fund a new mobility scooter for Zoe Gotts, a Abbots Langley resident.
Zoe said: "I would like to thank the Abbots Langley Tough Ten so much for giving me back my independence.
"It has made such a difference to my life."
Families and tough runners will take part in the races that include the 1.5k at 9.30am, 3k and 5k runs at 10am, as well as the 10k event at 10.30am.
Charity runs will begin at the Manor House Grounds, Gallows Hill Lane, Abbots Langley, on Sunday, October 7.
