Hitchin Running Club (The Hares) run from the Rugby Club on Old Hale Way.  

Wednesday Run Times

Starts at 6.30 from the Rugby for those new to the club and want to give it a go this run is the ideal start.  Aimed at those who can run around 5km in 30 mins.  This then leads in to the main run at 7pm.  You could do both using this one as a warm up.

Starting at the Rugby club at 7pm these runs are split in to two groups.

  • Scrubs – 7:40 minute mile pace/4:45 minute km pace and/or faster
  • Capes – 10-minute mile pace/6- minute km pace and/or faster

Once a month during the summer months we do a timed 5km called the “Chip Shop Challenge” around a street course in Hitchin.  This culminates with timings and chips from a nearby chip shop as reward.

Sunday Run Times

Starts at 9am from the Rugby Club.  This run is of varied pace 

The first Sunday in every month is run from the town centre starting at St Mary’s car park. This takes the club back to its town centre  roots and is an opportunity to run towards the south of Hitchin.

Throughout the year we will run a variety of other runs both in competitions and with other running clubs such as the Spartans in Stevenage.
