Events & Run Times

The Hitchin running calendar is updated on a regular basis so check back regularly.  The club run twice a week from the Rugby Club on Old Hale Way.  You can also subscribe to the calendar to get updated event details.

The first few runs are free as you get a feel for the club but then you can pay per running session or pay a yearly subscription.  We don’t make a profit and all the money is put back into the club to fund socials, affiliation and membership.

Tuesday Beginner Running

This is a beginner run in the parkrun vein. Starting at 6.30 by the playground, at Walsworth Common.  This is for all ages and is for those who want to keep fit or have a social run.  This is run by North Herts and it is important to contact them before turning up.

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 it’s 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.

Other Races

We also look to hold a number of running events each year.

Keep an eye out on the news section for more details.
