The fifth annual HERTS 10K run in aid of Grove House Hospice took place on Sunday 10th October in Harpenden. Joining the thousands of runners was the race starter, well known Sky Sports presenter, Geoff Shreeves.

After starting the race Geoff Shreeves joined family and friends to run the race, completing the course in under an hour. He then returned to the stage to present the winners and runners up with their trophies.

Geoff Shreeves said, 'Having heard so much about the HERTS 10K it was great to actually be there and to have the honour of starting the race. It was a great atmosphere and a great day.I really enjoyed taking part in the runwith so many people from the local community. It s a fantastic event and I would encourage anyone who is even just thinking of taking part in the run to sign up for next year. It is a great event right here on our doorstep.'

The 2010 winner was Marcin Fudalej who set a new course record of 32:56. The winner of the womens race was Claire Miles who had travelled down especially from university in Birmingham to take part in the race. She said, This is an amazing event and I cant wait to be back next year.

The winners of the race were personally presented with their medals as they crossed the finish line by Saracens Rugby players George Kruis and Jake Sharp. The players said, 'This is a truly awesome event and we have had a really great time.'

Geoff has joined the many other runners in raising sponsorship from his run. To date Geoff has raised over 5,000 on With well known sporting heroes such as Alan Shearer, Phil and Gary Neville, David Platt, Sam Allardyce and even Sir Alex Ferguson sponsoring Geoff, the HERTS 10K is now firmly in the Premier League of runs!

Lawrence Levy founder of the HERTS 10K and main sponsor said, 'Today was absolutely fantastic. Year after year this event gets better and better. It is great to see familiar faces as well as new ones. It goes to show people will come out in force from the local community to support their local hospice.'

Among the many other people taking part in the race were Elvis and The Stig.

The HERTS 10K took place on what is viewed by many as one of the luckiest days in the calendar 10.10.10. The HERTS 10K was certainly blessed with good fortune when it came to the weather with conditions perfect for runners. As the majority of the runners were crossing the finish line the sun came out and gave the field a wonderful golden glow as everyone basked in their achievement that day.
