HATFIELD BROAD OAK ROAD RACE 2017
Now in its 32nd year, the HBO 10k Road Race is one of the most popular 10k races in the Home Counties, open to runners aged 15 years and older we regularly attract 1500 runners every year on the late May Bank Holiday.
Held in the medieval village of Hatfield Broad Oak and organised by the local school PTA, the race has a very special atmosphere where the residents come out en masse to cheer you on as you loop through the village. All proceeds go to the village school and other village charities and organisations. In 2016 we helped groups ranging from the Cubs and Brownies & sports clubs for children, to the WI and a Christmas dinner for the over 60’s.
Due to last years success we will continue with our new race HQ at the village green. The finish will continue to open out onto the village green so friends and family can cheer you onand congratulate you almost immediately.
