Give your town the run around is a company that believes in fitness, health and supporting what matters locally. On September 28th 2014 Give your town the run around will be presenting the One:Five:Eight challenge. For the first time Hoddesdon will be the stage for this unique event which centres around a run but represents so much more. You can choose to run the  8k 5k or 1k route, we start and finish in Hoddesdon Town centre and have road closures in place.

You finish to a town centre showcasing all that is great about the local area, we have stands, stalls, a climbing wall, food, music and more activities including a fun scoot for kids (T&Cs apply) . As a by-product of this event we are supporting local causes and reinvesting in the town we are running in, we believe your local high street is key to inspiring what goes on around it and trust we can capture the imagination of others and people get involved. Everyone is invited, all ages and abilities. We have training plans on the website www.one-five-eight.comso no excuses!  We are more than a running event, we support community and what matters locally.

If you have a business in and around Hoddesdon, let us know, maybe you sell hair bands on Facebook and wish to have a stand on the day or maybe you sing and wish to showcase your talents or maybe you’re a magician?  So get involved and sign up and turn up. #Run #Community #Support #Local twitter @townrunaround
