On Sunday morning Cowley Hill is going to be invaded by people kitted out in shorts, t-shirts and trainers.

The reason for this invasion is the ever popular Borehamwood half-marathon and fun run.

Once again sponsored by Pinnacle Insurance plc, the event has attracted more than 300 runners.

Although the deadline for postal applications has passed, you can still enter by signing up on the day, starting at 8am.

The half-marathon costs £6.50 for affiliated runners, £7.50 for non-affiliated, and starts at 10am. The fun run, which starts at 10.15am, costs £3.50 for adults and children.
