Run all over heart disease at the British Heart Foundation’s Blenheim Palace Running Event

22 March 2017

British Heart Foundation (BHF) are looking for runners to take part in their half-marathon, 10k or family-friendly 2k route on 1st October 2017.

In 2016, those who took part helped raise over £200,000, which went towards helping BHF better understand how to prevent, diagnose and treat heart and circulatory disease, which is the cause of more than a quarter (26%) of all deaths in the UK.

Head to the beautiful Blenheim Palace Estate this October and be part of the challenge. Whether you choose to take on the Half Marathon, 10k route or a child-friendly 2k course, you’ll take in breath-taking views of the stately home and receive a well-earned medal at the finish line.

Leanne Postlethwaite, Fundraising Event Manager at the BHF, said: “Challenging yourself to the Blenheim Palace running event is a fantastic way to support the nation’s heart charity, save lives and improve your own heart health at the same time.

“By taking on this exciting challenge, every step you take will be helping bring us closer to beating heart disease for good. Our research has already helped halve death rates from heart and circulatory disease over the past 50 years, but there is still so much more to be done.

“We urgently need people to help us stop heart disease in its tracks and support us in our search for more lifesaving breakthroughs.”

The BHF relies on the generosity of its supporters, through fundraising events like Blenheim Palace Run, to pay for life saving research. Sign up to join the fight today by visiting https://www.bhf.org.uk/blenheim
