The Operations Manager of Hatfield Forest, Mr. Henry Bexley, has told us that we cannot run our Takeley 10k race through Hatfield Forest for 2019. The decision has been made by Hatfield Forest Management/ The National Trust as follows: They will not allow ANY LARGE RUNNING EVENTS in Hatfield Forest for the Summer of 2019. We have therefore had to change our route to incorporate this. Please see our race route page for further details.

Welcome to the Takeley 10k

Welcome to the Takeley 10k Website. So the Takeley 10K rolls round again and now its 2018 and now its number 9!! This years event is to take place on Sunday 1st September 2018!

We’ve been very fortunate over the last eight years with all the support we have had. Hundreds of people from near and far have put on their running shoes and enjoyed the beautiful scenic route that is Takeley 10K. We’ve had tremendous support from the local community – from Takeley Parish Council, to Takeley Scout Group to people giving up their Sunday to marshall, man the water stations, registration desks and the great music and PA system! It’s the fantastic community effort that has enabled us to grow from our initial race of around 150 runners to this years 428 finishers!

The Takeley 10k started in 2010 with the aim of bringing the village together to raise funds for the refurbishment of the Silver Jubilee Hall and Social Club. Phase 1 of the refurbishment was completed in May 2014, including new electrics, plumbing, insulation, air re-circulating and doors for the main hall. Phase 2 was completed in 2016 with the new toilets and a new entrance area linked to the Social Club. We want to say a huge thank you to all the runners, sponsors and volunteers that have helped make the Takeley 10K the event that it is. You have all made these improvements happen and we look forward to seeing you each year for the annual Takeley 10K run!
