The Abbots Langley Tough Ten – Can you handle it? A long-time favourite race, the Tough Ten returns in 2022 for its 40th year. A real family event that appeals to runners of all ages and abilities, the event features a 10k, 5k, 3k and 1k – so there really is a race for everybody. The event attracts great support from the community by testing runners on scenic and accurately measured courses. The Abbots Langley Tough Ten is registered Charity (No. 1163519), raising funds to help local clubs and charities continue with their good work, to assist schools with special projects and individual beneficiaries to improve their quality of life. It is an annual community event which attracts a wide range of runners – from the seriously competitive to those looking to complete their first race. About the Event: Race start times Each race will start promptly at the following times: 10K – 10.30 am 5K – 10.00 am 3K – 10.00 am 1K – 9.30 am The Route The 10K and 5k courses are accurately measured and take you along quiet lanes in and around the pretty villages of Abbots Langley, Bedmond, and Kings Langley. Although the start is on grass, the rest of the routes are on tarmac roads and so we’d recommend road shoes.
