Hitchin 10 Event Reviews

Unique insight from attendees of our most recent event

The race was a fantastic event

The race was a fantastic event. The Hitchin Hares did a fabulous job of creating a safe, fun event. The race took us through the quirky cobbles of Hitchin’s Town centre and the wonderful countryside that is on Hitchin’s doorstep as runners embarked on a loop of Charlton and Gosmore.  It seemed like the race… Read more “The race was a fantastic event”

  • David Wardle – Ex England Junior Middle Distance Runner writes

    So most of my beliefs on training revolve around the ‘Lydiard Method’… in simple terms you build a solid foundation of conditioning with a large base of aerobic training before you even consider doing anything too specific like speed work or ‘hard’ running.
