Now in its third year, the two-lap race started in Market Place, as competitors were cheered all the way as they took on the course.

The event was won by Andrew Patterson in a time of 16 minutes 38 seconds, with Rosalind Kieran victorious in the women’s race in a time of 17 minutes 43 seconds

Jake Amos, race director for the event for Hitchin running club and Burnt Hare Events said “We are extremely proud of everyone that took part, especially all the people that gave up their time to help make the event a great success.

“A big thank you all the businesses and organisations that helped to put the event on again, who without them it wouldn’t be able to happen.”

The town centre race entries are back open again and Hitchin Running Club will be hosting the fourth edition next year.
