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.
