Wheathampstead 10K/2K Race

The Wheathampstead 10K / 2K family fun run is a run for adults and children held annually by Beech Hyde School. It has proven to be a valuable event for the school community as well as providing the village and the wider community with a superbly enjoyable and organised event highly respected by serious runners and 'fun' runners alike.

Within the past 4 years we have managed to raise £50K from this event alone, and this fund has been spent on the new learning areas such as the courtyard room, gazebo, infants outdoor play area, hall redecoration, restocking books in the library, to name but a few.


Most significantly, these enhancements has contributed to Beech Hyde School being rated Good by Ofsted, as well as listed within the top 20 in the recent primary school SATS league table for Harpenden and St Albans district.


For a small village school, Beech Hyde is immensely proud of having introduced the Wheathampstead 10K/2K run. Its organisation demands a huge amount of work but when the day comes, things fall into place; the community rallies round and everyone comes away having had a thoroughly enjoyable time.
