The Herts 10K is back and better than ever!

This year we’re thrilled to unveil an exciting new venue, route, and different distance options to choose from!

The event now boasts three tiers of challenge for any level of ability:

  • Our flagship 10K is back with a new route to challenge your PB – for ages 14 and over
  • Introducing the 5K if you’d like to take on a gentler challenge – open to anyone aged 11 and up. Be race-ready in just 9 weeks using the NHS Couch to 5K app
  • Our brand new Family Fun Run means children of all ages can join in the fun! (under 8s must be accompanied by an adult)

The brand new route at the Herts County Showground follows a mix of short grass and hard standing, and includes some fun features including a ‘roller coaster’ up and down a slope and a whizzy spiral to get you in a spin!

10K and 5K runners will receive a t-shirt, medal and chip timing. Fun runners will receive a treat at the end of their race.

Raise over £100 and you will also receive a free Rennie Grove Peace water bottle!
