Hatfield Broad Oak 10k Road Race 2019


Monday 27th May 2019

Welcome to the Hatfield Broad Oak 10k 2019 Race incorporating the 1 mile family fun run. Now in its 34th year, the HBO 10K has grown to be one of the largest and most popular road races in the South East. Now a Gold rated BARR accredited race with chip timing the event attracts up to 1500 runners from across the nation.

Held in the medieval village of Hatfield Broad Oak near Bishop’s Stortford and organised by the local school PTA the race is held on country roads fully closed to traffic which gives the race a very special atmosphere as residents and spectators gather to cheer you on as you loop through the village in a figure of eight finishing on the beautiful village green in the heart of the village. Here all finishers receive the famous HBO10K technical T-shirt,

The race is a real community effort with support from local companies offering sponsorship and local villagers giving up their time and providing months of support to make the day a success.

1-mile family fun run

Starting outside the village school, shortly after the main race has finished, younger runners, their friends and family are invited to enter the 1 mile fun that loops around the small ‘O’ of the village  - no registration is necessary and this race is charged as a £1 donation per runner on the day, medals are awarded to all children that take part.

So where does your money go?

This year we have an exciting project to fundraise for – a new playground!  Planning is already underway and the 10K run will raise much needed funds! 

Broad Oak 10K is made by the community, for the community.  Apart from being a fantastic day to bring everyone together, the funds raised go back into local groups in Hatfield Broad Oak.  This event is run by our school PTA and St Mary’s HBO, is our main beneficiary.  

 Over the years your contribution has also benefited many local organisations  some of which are listed below:

  • Cubs
  • Scouts
  • Youth football
  • WI
  • Cricket club
  • Kung Fu
  • Netball
  • Church Toddler group
