Route information
The Flitch Way is the old railway system that ran between Braintree and Bishops Stortford. The single track railway opened in 1869 and closed exactly 100 years later, and is now home to a beautiful countryside trail.
The course covers an entirely flat 5.3K loop of hard packed off-road trail, giving runners a slightly cushioned impact compared to tarmac, which is important when running for 7 hours.
If running for 7 hours doesn't sound like your cup of tea then don't panic, this event is designed so you can push yourself at your own pace. So if you only want to complete a couple of laps and call it a day then you are welcome to. Everyone is a finisher here.

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.

Do I need to bring my own bottle/cup to the Rayneing Medals Marathon & 7 Hour Endurance event?
