Fred Hughes (10 mile)

Race Date: Sunday, 19/01/2020
Race Distance: 10 Miles

The Fred Hughes 10 mile race (run around country roads near St Albans in Hertfordshire) has a lot going for it. Undulating course, full of twists and turns, great support and amazing views. The route is nearly all on tarmac but just about the right amount of hill to make it interesting without slowing things down too much. 1000 runners and a very tight start on a grass verge make the first half mile a bit slow but things soon get going. Nearly always cold of course - this year the temperature was 0C so frosty conditions made it a bit interesting in places. Katy's favourite 10 miler - yet another pb this year.
