The ever popular Wheathampstead 10K run will be taking place on Sunday 21st May 2017, starting and ending up on the Marford Playing Fields.
This annual event has become a favourite amongst local runners and even sees competitors from much further afield coming to the village, encouraged by reports of a run with a local feel that takes in some beautiful countryside.
The 10K race starts at 11:00am and is chip-timed mat to mat. Entries for the 10K are accepted in advance only.
The 10K is a challenging off-road course, and with its outstanding scenery and friendly village setting this is a popular run with all levels of runners – view the route in detail here:
