MEASURE UP: Route for Abbots Langley Tough Ten remeasured for first time in 10 years

As preparations for the Abbots Langley Tough Ten race kick into gear, the 10-kilometre course for the event has been remeasured for the first time in 10 years.

The route needs remeasuring at least once every decade to make sure it is still accurate. Despite advances in technology since the first race in 1982, the best way to do this is still with a bike, tape measure, a few tools and regular race measurer Paul Woods.

This year, Tony Williams, special services trophy winner at the 2022 edition of the Tough Ten, offered to help Paul in taking measurements.

A spokesperson for the Tough Ten Committee said: “The course has now been measured from start to finish and, last week, from finish to start.

“It’s all now officially recorded and the new course certificate on its way. Let’s hope that the race continues long enough to use the full validity of the new licence.”

The race has been renamed this year as the Abbots Langley George Harrison Tough Ten, in memory of one of the race founders, and takes place on October 1. Entries are open online here.
