MORE than 900 people took part in this year's Knebworth 10k jog on Sunday, to raise money for the British Heart Foundation (BHF).

For a fourth year, runners and walkers flocked to Knebworth Park, and Stevenage mayor Mick Patston and head of Knebworth House Henry Lytton Cobbold were there to cheer them on.

BHF event organiser Adam Brockett said: "What a great way to start 2009.

"It was great to see such a diversity of local people on the day - either walking, running or just there to support their loved ones.
