The Abbots Langley Tough Ten is returning and will be taking place as usual on the first Sunday in October, after the disappointment of last year’s event being cancelled due to COVID-19.
Trusting that the road out of lockdown goes according to plan, Sunday, October 3, will see the 10k, 5k, 3k and Park Run departing from the Manor House Playing Fields for this annual community event, which has been sponsored for many years by M.K. Ginder and Sons Ltd.
The Tough Ten has been taking place for almost 40 years and in that time many beneficiaries – individuals, teams and youth groups – have benefited from the monies raised.
Last year was the first that the race had not taken place in all that time. They were, however, able to make Christmas special with surprise support to a deserving local family and in October, on the day the race should have taken place, were also able to present the Graham Taylor Community Cup to Minesh Patel, owner of Abbots Supermarket.
A spokesperson for Tough Ten, said: “With hope very much on the horizon, we look forward to welcoming runners of all ages and abilities and to raise much needed funds for deserving beneficiaries.
“Our usual call at this time of year is to get people involved and marshals are always urgently needed, as are details of any person or group that may need some support and anybody wishing to help with sponsorship.”
Their Facebook page will keep updating progress and you can contact the committee by email on email@example.com or through the Facebook page, should you be able to help with any of the above essentials.
