Thousands at Blenheim Palace for British Heart Foundation races
Runners from around the world gathered at Blenheim Palace in Woodstock today for the third annual half marathon in aid of the British Heart Foundation.
Four thousand runners took part in the half marathon, 10k race and 2k fun run in a bid to raise more than £150,000, the amount raised for last year’s event.
Those on the 10k run were led by Commonwealth Games gold medal heptathlete Louise Hazel, who lost her own father to heart disease, which is responsible for more than 80,000 deaths a year in the UK.
Runners were joined by celebrities including opera singer Natalie Coyle, and Spencer Matthews, who stars in reality TV show Made in Chelsea.
