Event day logistics
09:30 Marathon and 6-hour challenge starts
Please arrive at least 30-45 minutes before the event starts to ensure you leave enough time for registration and to warm up. Registration will be located at Rayne Station.
This event is open to runners aged 17 and over.
There will be an aid station at the end of every lap where flapjacks, fruit and nuts, water and squash will be provided. You are also welcome to leave your own nutrition at the stations to remove the burden of carrying all your fuel and unleash your speed.
Please note this is a cupless event, so runners should bring their own receptacle for hydration.

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.
