event marshalling and first aid - you'll be supported

"One of the best events in the runners diary"
"I love the course and I particularly like the finish when
we go downhill into Boscombe then run along the sea front. Amazing
"Completing it and knowing money went to a good cause. Markers
for the how many Km had been passed was good and arrows were
helpful. Easy to find venue and well organised at the start and
during the run the water station volunteers were great."

that saves lives. In 1961 the number of children born with
a heart defect who survived to their first birthday was around only
20 per cent. Today that figure is 80 per cent, thanks to procedures
such as valve replacement that help them lead improved lives.
For all our success, there's a lot still to be done. Heart
disease is still the UK's single biggest killer. Surgery techniques
can still be improved. And there are exciting developments in
genetics and stem cell technology.
Your entry fee covers the cost of organising the event; so join
the fight for every heartbeat by raising funds. Your
