Quotes from Runners

Shame about the weather (though not as bad as last year) - but that's the only bad thing to say about this lovely 10k. It's undulating, but very quick, good support, well marshalled and a village fete afterwards!

A big thanks to our 2017 Sponsors




Monday 29th May 2017 I 11.00hrs I The Village Green, Hatfield Broad Oak 



We would like to thank all runners, spectators, marshals, sponsors and volunteers for making 2016 a great success.

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 2015 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 year's success we will continue with our new race HQ at the village green. and the finish will continue to open out onto the village green so friends and family can cheer you on and congratulate you almost immediately. Race packs will be issued at St Mary's Primary School on the day, please arrive between 8.30am and 10.00am, anyone arrivng after 10.30am may not receive their pack.
