Big O Broad Oak 10k Road Race – 30th May 2011

Now in its 26th year the Big O Broad Oak 10K Road Race in Hatfield Broad Oak is one of the best loved races in the South East. Hatfield Broad Oak is on the Herts / Essex border near to Stansted Airport. The race is a single lap of a figure of eight course on traffic free roads.

The race starts at 11am on 30th May 2011 which is a Bank Holiday Monday so it is the perfect event for family and friends to support the runners. The race forms part of the village festival weekend so there is entertainment, a fete, side stalls, food, incredible floral displays in the 12th century church, music and fantastic support from the local pubs and villagers.

There is ChampionChip timing, free parking, changing facilities, toilets, prizes, water stations and a commemorative t-shirt for every finisher. The Big O Broad Oak Road Race has received a silver grade from B.A.R.R.

Once the main race has finished there is a 1 mile children’s fun run. Free to enter every child that finishes receives a medal.

This is a very popular event. The 2010 race had 1500 runners and places fill quickly. Entry will open on 1st March 2011.
