Event: Hertfordshire Half Marathon

The Hertfordshire Half Marathon event is coming back for it’s second year on Sunday 18th November 2018. This ROAD CLOSED half marathon will start and finish at the iconic Knebworth House with the course taking participants around the surrounding rural roads.

Knebworth House is a grade II listed house set in acres of beautiful gardens and parkland. Knebworth House has welcomed many music artists for major open air concerts, including Robbie Williams, Oasis, Led Zepellin and Red Hot Chilli Peppers. The grounds are home to popular tourist attractions including an adventure playground and dinosaur trail.

Why run for it for The Connection?
Located in the heart of Westminster, we’re one of London’s busiest homelessness centres, working in direct contact with vulnerable homeless rough sleepers all year round. Being a local organisation, we don’t have the overheads that other’s do, and can promise you that 91p in every £1 will be spent on helping homeless people. Running for us means you will be directly supporting the homeless people who need your help most, through our services which enable people to access housing, employment training, and professional support to overcome personal issues.

What difference could you make?

  • £100 could fund 4 full initial assessments for newly homeless people, creating their action plans and giving them access to hot nutritious meals, showers, laundry and GP services
  • £350 could enable a vulnerable homeless rough sleeper to have a course of specialist one-to-one mental health support sessions which will help them to positively cope with their problems and move forward. Considering that approximately two thirds of homeless people living on the streets have mental health problems which are often severely hindering their ability to move on from the streets, that is a massive contribution.

    What support will we give you?
    We’ll be sending you a high-quality running vest, personalised with your name.
    We can also help with advice on training and support to achieve your fundraising target.
