A pretty out and back marathon mostly along an old disused railway line, very flat with mostly gravelled paths underfoot. There are a couple of sections that have the potential to be really muddy and wet and a small part of it that will be through the edge of the town of Dunmow. See out the year with a final marathon.
St Peter's Way is a 45 mile footpath meandering through the countryside of Essex, from Chipping Ongar to the ancient chapel of St Peter-on-the-Wall at Bradwell on Sea. This will be a great race, but tough, due to the uneven underfoot conditions with the possibility of lots of muddy tracks. This is a historic and scenic route steeped in history and dating back to 653AD.

This is a 100k timed event that will run 10 x 10k out and back sections along the Flitch Way in Essex. It is primarily aimed at a time qualifier for those who need one for Spartathlon later in the year BUT anyone can come and run it as long as you are happy you can run inside the cut-off. The cutoff is 12hours - you will be stopped if you get over this but can run up to that time.
