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 was full of a great mix of local running club runners and local Hitchin folk, from fast runners to those challenging themselves to their first 10k. Everyone seemed delighted to be out and able to run in a race. Families and friends gathered around the course with marshals providing encouragement, which created a great atmosphere.
On a personal note, I was over the moon to win the race in my home town in front of my family.
