Route information
Get stuck into this fun, summertime event in support of the Finish Line Fund, which supports runners with grants and amateur-level sports in Southend-on-Sea. The event takes place in Belchamps Park, a lovely green space on the outskirts of Hockley.
With a traffic-free trail course, you can run as far or as little as you like, attempting a series of 5k loops. Complete 4 laps for a half marathon and 8 laps for a marathon, or race against the clock in the 6-hour timed event.
The loop begins at Belchamps Park, heading into the trails of the 130-hectare Hockley Woods and then down towards Gustedhall Woods and the Scrubs. At the Scrubs, runners will head northwards back towards the Park.
