2015 Race | 18/01/2015 | 10:00am start
Herts County Senior Championship
The Fred Hughes 10 is a 10 mile road race run round St Albans in Hertfordshire. The 2015 race will take place on Sunday 18th January at 10:00am.
FRED HUGHES IS NOW SOLD OUT!
Due to flooding on part of the course we have decided to use the alternate routes (as used in 2014). This has been accurately measured and certified. Please find a map of the route below.
The forecast for the weekend is not great and we would advise you to keep an eye on forecasts and come prepared for both running and travelling home in what might be deteriorating conditions as there is snow forecast, in particular Sunday afternoon but possibly earlier.
At this moment we are not anticipating that the race will be cancelled but if the situation changes, we will email you by tomorrow evening and update the website.
