Event summary

Your organiser

The Race Organiser creates outstanding opportunities for people to bring out their best run, swim or cycle performance.

We seek out the most inspiring and rewarding locations, develop race routes and event formats, and create a brilliant atmosphere and race day experience – offered at the best possible value. We don’t think it’s ok to ask people who are aspiring to do amazing things to pay huge sums of money, so we charge as little as we can afford, rather than as much as we can get away with.

We’re always looking for volunteers to help make these events epic.

Route description
Route description

This is the 3rd event in the 5 race Essex 10K series, running from May 2021 - September 2021. Runners can take part in individual races or the entire series.

Underfoot, the course takes you along a variety of paths - gravel, forestry, grass plains - with exposed tree roots and overhanging branches throughout. Although a challenge, this is suitable for runners of all levels.

The route will be lapped, with runners completing it twice.

Water stations will be available after the completion of each lap and the course will be marshalled and distance marked throughout.

Quite a tough course, hills trail grass gravel tree roots uneven paths but that’s Thorndon Woods, and I loved every moment. Well marked out encouraging marshals along the way. If you like cross country this is for you. If you’ve not tried cross country give it a go.
