The Springfield Striders Pleshey Half Marathon has once again been awarded the honour of hosting the Essex AA Half Marathon Championship.
Your race number and timing chip will be available on the morning of the race from the race headquarters, Pleshey Village Hall, from 8:30 onwards. Please allow yourself plenty of time. Your race number must be securely fastened to the front of your vest/T-shirt so it can be easily visible around the course and in the finish area.
Please complete the details on the rear of the number; this is very important especially if you have any pre existing medical conditions. Your timing chip should be attached as instructed with the cable ties provided in your race pack.
The start is a short walk from the village hall down the hill towards the Leather Bottle pub. Please observe the start line marshals and congregate in Back Lane, not on the main road through the village. You will then be called to the start line. Please consider your finishing time when positioning yourself on the start line. There will be no formal road closures for the start. From the start the course goes back past the village hall in a large figure of eight through High Easter and Bishops Cross returning towards Pleshey to enter the village through Back Lane turning right up a slight hill to the finish on the village hall field. The majority of the course consists of winding, single track country roads so please keep to the left at all times unless directed otherwise by the marshals. Please make your way through the finishing area as quickly as possible depositing your chip timing device in the containers provided, marshals will be there to assist you.
