About
Following yet another fantastic year the Benfleet 15 returns for a 28th time year in 2018. In 2017 the race attracted over 550 runners who tackled the challenging route. Using a challenging multi terrain single lap course starting in Hadleigh Country Park, the route takes runners through the undulating Hadleigh Downs, along sections of the Benfleet and Canvey Island Sea Wall before finishing back at the Country Park. The race is organised by Benfleet Running Club with chip timing services provided by Nice Work. In addition to the main 15 mile race there is also a 1 mile family fun run open to all ages starting at 10.00 am, with entries taken on the day (all children under the age of ten need to be accompanied by an adult.) The race attracts a large field, so an early entry is advised.

The recent heavy rain meant that 2020 saw more mud at Benfleet than we have had for many years. The perfect weather made it impossible not to enjoy the occasion, and the shrieks of laughter as runners got stuck, or soaked, was testament to the good time we all had.

Recommend this event to any keen runner! Don’t underestimate it though - it is brutal so train well. The terrain is unforgiving but the pain is dulled by the amazing supporters and marshals! The medal is amazing and the cake and soup afterwards is to die for! I’ll be back next year!

Most of the course was amazing, loved the mud and hills, found the run out along the wall and back a little bit boring Xx

Disappointed to be told while queuing to drop baggage that the race wouldn’t start until everyone had dropped off bags. Only to arrive at the start immediately after dropping bag to find race had started 2+ mins ago.

One of my favourite events of the running calendar. Seriously challenging, friendly and well organised.My only suggestion would be put bag tag in with race no to save time at bag drop. Got stuck in queue and race had started.
