The Essex Cross Country Series is a 5 event 10k series that takes place annually between April and September, with one race per month. Taking place in 5 different spectacular country parks in Essex, these races offer an opportunity to get away from the road and experience trail running in the summer months. Races can be entered individually. Runners taking part in more than one race will receive series points that are accumulated to become eligible for series prizes when 4 or more races are completed.

The fourth of five races, this 10km is a mixture of cross country and paved paths over an undulating landscape. Hadleigh Country Park is one of the largest country parks in Essex surrounding a castle which presents an awesome backdrop for an awesome race.
