Young People from Three Rivers support Abbots Langley ‘Tough Ten’ race

04 October 2017

Young people from Abbots Langley Youth Project and the West Hyde Youth Council joined forces to support the Abbots Langley Tough Ten race, helping to raise money for local causes.

The young people, accompanied by a YC Hertfordshire youth worker, braved the pouring rain and muddy course to complete either a 3k or 5k race.

The money raised by the event helps to support many local clubs and charities – and over the last three years the young people who attend Abbots Langley Youth Centre have benefitted from donations from the charity which has helped to fund bike maintenance equipment, a food processor and blender and sporting equipment.

This year, as a thank you for their generosity, young people who attend the local YC Hertfordshire youth projects wanted to take part in the event themselves and help to contribute to these charities.

“It was really difficult and I had to keep pushing myself but I’m so glad I completed it. Getting up the hill was a real challenge!’ commented Tamzin, while Adam added, ‘I made my new record timing for 5k but I’m going to beat this next year.”

The Abbots Langley Tough Ten started in 1982 and, as well as the initial 10K, has grown to include a Park Run, 3K and 5K race.
