Hitchin 5k

Join 'Team Garden House' and run for Garden House Hospice Care as we team up with BurntHare Events for the Hitchin 5k.

We have limited places available at the Hitchin 5k which, given the route it takes around mostly flat roads, is perfect for seasoned runners looking to achieve a new personal best or those just starting out on their running journey! Either way, you'll feel good knowing you've supported a local charity at a local event!

The route starts at Hitchin Market Place, following two laps around the High Street, River Hiz, Windmill Hill, Payne's Park and Cooper's Yard.

Age restrictions

You must be 11 or older on event day to take part in the Hitchin 5k.

Please note: Adults must book for anyone under 18 at the time of booking. Please choose the relevant ticket when registering and include your details first, then fill in the attendee details on the second screen.


The registration fee for this event is £12 per person. This includes a free 'Team Garden House' running vest or technical t-shirt - you can confirm your preference and size upon sign-up.


We ask each runner to pledge to raise a minimum of £99 for Garden House Hospice Care. This amount could fund more than four hours of care on our Inpatient Unit for one patient, including the cost of nursing and our doctors, as well as running costs like hot water and keeping the unit clean.

We need you, your friends, families and colleagues to help assemble a team of amazing runners for the Hitchin 5k, helping Garden House Hospice Care continue to provide free palliative care in and around North Hertfordshire.
