Join Isabel Hospice Christmas fun run in Welwyn Garden City

IF you go down to Welwyn Garden City’s Stanborough Lakes in a couple of weeks time, beware of a big surprise.

For there’s bound to be a bunch of very strange looking people, all in running shoes.

But it is all in a good cause, the Isabel Hospice Bells and Bows fun run.

Sponsored by John Lewis and supported by the WHT and JackFM, the popular 4k event will see hundreds of runners and walkers, in fancy dress or plain running gear, circling Stanborough Lakes on Sunday, December 5.

Organiser, Julie North said: “This is different to your normal Santa run as we encourage runners and walkers to dress up in any festive-inspired outfit they like. That could be a fairy, a Christmas tree, or a reindeer.
