This November join the crowds in remembering fallen servicemen and women by taking part in this event and honouring the two minute silence mid-race. The course follows an undulating, traffic-free lapped pathway and participants have 6 hours to complete as many (or as few) as they like.

Remembrance Sunday - Marathon & 6hr Challenge routes

The course covers an almost entirely level footpath that gives runners a chance to crack out some fast paced laps of the ~10K circuit. To cover a full marathon runners will have to complete 4 laps.

The terrain is largely hard packed dirt and gravel so runners are safe with road shoes.

Please Note: At exactly 11AM there will be a two minute silence to remember those fallen servicemen and women. Participants are strongly encouraged to take part in this.

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.
