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.
