The Abbots Langley Tough 10 returns again in 2017 for a 35th year and this year is a special year in the race's history but sadly without the presence and support of friend and one-time participant, Graham Taylor.
You can read more about the race's name change on their website here.
The tough 10k course takes you around the pretty villages Abbots Langley, Bedmond and Kings Langley.
The race aims to raise funds for local charities and beneficiaries. Over the years the event has provided specialised equipment for the less mobile in the form of hoists, beds, wheelchairs and tricycles. Along with assisting local schools with special projects and individual beneficiaries to improve their quality of life. If you know any local individuals or organisation that wishes to be considered for support from the Tough Ten funds you can contact them via the race website here.
Suitable for experienced runners and beginners alike and with the option of either 10k, 5k, 3k and 1k races so there are events for all the family!
There will be chip timing for the 10k, 5k and 3k races.
