Route information
The undulating but mostly flat, traffic-free trail is the best type of race course to add to your spring running calendar. The Essex coastline provides some awesome seaside views and volatile weather to provide a unique running adventure.
The race will start in and end in Brightlingsea, a small but thriving historic sailing town with colourful beach huts, independent shops, and quaint cafes.
Runners can either choose to run a marathon, or as many laps of the 10.54k loop they please within the 6 hour time limit. Complete 2 for a Half Marathon, 4 for a Marathon, 1 for just over a 10k, or race the clock and complete as many as you possibly can.
Please note this is a cupless event, so runners should bring a their own receptacle for hydration.

Hare & Tortoise Running
It's our aim to provide premier running events throughout Essex and the South East for all abilities. ​ Between us, we have accumulated more years running than we like to count and participate in as many races as we think we can get away with (either to stay injury-free or just to keep the family harmony)! ​ We think that this gives a really good idea about what makes for great running events and our aim is to provide awesome events with runners always at the heart of what we do. ​ We also recognise the enormous benefits of running for general well-being and mental health and want to encourage participation at every ability and for any age. For this reason, we have set up a running group to operate within the Run Together initiative.
