Hatfield Town Council has opened registration for its charity runs, raising money for the Jamie McVeigh Foundation.

The 5k and 10k runs will take place in the grounds of Hatfield House on Sunday, October 15, at 10am.

They are being held in aid of the mayor of Hatfield’s chosen charity for 2017/18, the Jamie McVeigh Foundation.

The Jamie McVeigh Foundation was set-up following the death of Hatfield teenager Jamie McVeigh, and aims to break down the barriers in young men so they know it’s okay not to be okay.

Entrants taking part in the Run Hatfield House event will be able to explore the stunning grounds of Hatfield House, while raising funds for the charity.

Everyone completing the runs will be awarded a finisher’s medal, and there will be trophies for overall 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, as well as age group prizes in 10 year bands.

Councillor Lenny Brandon, leader of Hatfield Town Council, said: “Through the Hatfield 10k, we are pleased to be able to raise much needed funds to support the Jamie McVeigh Foundation, and I hope many local residents will take part.”
