Hitchin 10km 2023
The Hitchin 10, is booked for the 30th April 2023 – Race Day Instructions.
Welcome to The Hitchin 10km. This race is unique because it is the only 10km in the known region that starts and finishes in a market square, giving this race a unique feel in that you are running amongst a historic setting with a cosmopolitan feel to it.
The course profile is classified as flat and it has one small climb.
The route itself is a beautiful one. It starts right in the town centre, with the first kilometer (the north loop) being on closed roads that go anti-clockwise around town. You then head out towards the Gosmore and Charlton villages to complete a clockwise south loop, before heading back into Hitchin. You complete another 1km loop that you started on, and then that all famous Town Centre finish.
The town centre roads and roads leading out to Charlton are all closed, but once in the countryside these roads are not closed, but they are not busy and they are popular to use.
When you enter the race you know you are getting a great event.
