The Herts 10K is back! After two years as a virtual event, we’re thrilled to welcome runners back in person to the iconic Herts 10K. One of the most popular running events in Hertfordshire, the route winds through the stunning private grounds of the Rothamsted Estate. We’re so grateful to Rothamsted Research for opening up their space for our runners to enjoy.
Rennie Grove is planning a festival feel to mark the Herts 10K’s return as a physical, in-person event. Our dedicated supporters did an amazing job keeping the Herts 10K going as a virtual event. However, it’s brilliant to be able to welcome back the crowds to this flagship fundraiser. There’ll be entertainment, food and drink for spectators and participants. So, grab some friends, bring your family, and have a great day out in this beautiful, exclusive setting in Harpenden.

Why has the Herts 10K rebranded?
If you’re a returning runner, you’ll see we’ve given our Herts 10K a makeover. That’s because we wanted to usher in an exciting new Herts 10K era with a fresh new look. We’ve kept it similar because the Herts 10K has been a recognised, trusted ‘brand’ for 17 years, and we wanted to mark this occasion as it’s such an important part of our community and our fundraising.
