Event summary

Challenge yourself with this out and back half, 10k, or 5k fun run starting in Hitchin Priory. Perfect for those seeking a new challenge, the course is renowned for its hills and provides a stiff challenge for all runners. Come for the great atmosphere or for the scenic surroundings.

Your organiser

We revived Hitchin’s oldest road race in 2012 as part of the Olympics celebrations. It raises money for charity and helps us put something back into our community. It’s a great race with a measured course in beautiful countryside. The start and finish is completely car free in the grounds of Hitchin Priory which gives the morning a relaxed feel. Bacon sandwiches are available.

Route description
Route description

Both the Half Marathon & 10K are renowned for the formidable challenge which they throw up. With an abundance of hills throughout, runners will be rewarded as they track along picturesque country side roads.

Additionally, there is a 5k fun run, which is naturally undulating and starts and finishes in the grounds of Hitchin Priory.
